This Hubski post / discussion has some interesting insights into this situation.
I have so many different ideas about privacy, how things currently work, why they work that way, and how they should work. Unfortunately, as demonstrated by my comments on that post, I haven't quite figured out how to concisely share my point of view. I have too many ideas and too many seemingly hypocritical points.
That boiling frog premise is a really great metaphor for these changes. I am enjoying revisiting old posts about technology and internet services because, even if we don't notice the incremental changes (as the water heats), the change is noticeable when you look at 2006 vs 2014 and ignore 2007-2013.
