Pre-post on Logging and Privacy

As I am working on a long and fun blog post related to logging and privacy, here is one fun bit: semi-silly predictions of privacy (lack thereof) in the year 2020.

And, of course, a fun logging bit: "All e-mail and logs of network and search activity will be stored permanently. " (I am assuming one needs also to add: all activity on computers and networks is logged, as I said here)

Your prediction may be quite feasible if IBM continues to make progress using an atom as a unit of storage ( If you can theoretically store 30,000 feature length movies in an 'iPod', storing all of your logs permanently in a data center should be doable.

Wow, thanks for the link; this certainly brings new meaning to the "disk space is cheap" line :-)
