by Sabrina I. Pacifici on May 7, 2004

From the June 2004 issue of Reason magazine, take the time to read this article (10 pages, pdf), Database Nation, The upside of “zero” privacy, by Declan McCullagh: “Focusing on government power would keep intact the advantages of databasifcation – such as lower prices and cheaper mortgages – while limiting possible abuses by law enforcement. We should retain the benefts of living in a database nation while preventing it from devolving into a police state.”
