Chapter 7. Privacy in the Future

Chapter 7. Privacy in the Future

Last August, to dramatize its Total Surveillance Society campaign, the ACLU created a clever, flash-based animation that portrays a future where privacy has been obliterated and data brokers run amok.

You then look over the shoulder of a perky Pizza Palace employee who proceeds to click through a series of screens detailing the customer's medical records, financial history, library loans, travel plans, and recent retail purchases. Because he's got high blood pressure, his insurance company insists on a $20 surcharge for ordering a meat pizza (although the submarine sprout combo is available at a discount).
