I think as tech people who sit on the internet far too much we are the ones who see the collection's of small steps over time from companies to force 'integration' on the consumers (may aswell call it assimilation) as a bigger picture. Don't forget Google is forcing you to have your real name on youtube and create a channel even if you only want to watch videos.. then that channel links into your life and all your details on google+
(Que.. you can opt out response but then look at facebooks very recent changes)
(from a purely selfish point of view) I know many people are walking right into a mouse trap with regards to their life and data being sold tiny bits of candy along the way, well if millions continue this way (and they will) then MY rights are effected because of mass stupidity and we already have that in 'real life' with all the excessive health and safety bull crap because someone was too dumb not to spill hot coffee on their lap in Macdonald's .. add infinitum to the most ridiculous nanny state society (both UK and the US do this for control nothing more)
So, if you favor the march of the morons and want to be included in that storm with all the other idiots.. please refrain from dragging me in aswell.
