Some quotes that resonate with me these days...

Bruce Schneier: “Don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re Facebook’s customer, you’re not – you’re the product. Its customers are the advertisers.”

Mark Weinstein: “You as a Facebook user are not the customer. You are the product they sell.” 

Edward Morrissey: “You’re not Facebook’s customer. You’re Facebook’s product.” 

Brian Stelter: “You know, Facebook’s free. If something’s free, that means you’re the product.”

blue_beetle: “If you are not paying for it, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold.” 

Content Article: "To the extent that our personal data has become a product, it’s because we—and our representatives in government—have allowed it to happen... If you aren’t paying for it with money, you’re paying for it in other ways. Whether it’s your time, your privacy, or your intellectual property, you’re giving over to Facebook something of value every time you use it."

If you're like me, you're getting sick and tired of hearing all the crap being published about our personal information being harvested by the likes of Face-stinkin-book, Google, and the others like them. These "free" services make us their "product" that they in turn sell to third parties (including the gubmint). I'm tired of being surveilled and followed and categorized and data mined. 

I ran into this article that might be a good first step for some: 

I've changed my default search engine to DuckDuckGo. I'm test driving a more secure email solution: ProtonMail. I've switched my DNS to CloudFlare's 1.1.1.1 that is supposed to be privacy centered. I need a better browser...

And I'm thinking of air-gapping... You know? I mean... seriously... just run Tails for my internet needs and maintain and air-gapped machine that I actually do my work and personal stuff on. 

I'm tired of being surveilled.

Biometrics will be the next step in the development of privacy-eroding and life-invading technologies. And most people will voluntarily accept it, and probably even pay for it (much like they have voluntarily accepted 24/7 surveillance through cell phones, FitBits, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and a host of other "products" that make a product of people).
