It's time for Dilbert to get some help from the Prince of Insufficient Light, so the PHB's computer gets so crammed full of stuff it self destructs...

Why are we SO concerned about privacy? I could care less if complete strangers know what my browser history is. Really. What's the big deal?

I understand the concern about private information but 1) sites that require that are secure and 2) don't post what you don't want the world to know publicly or even semi-publicly (aka Twitter, Facebook, etc.). Even if it's "friend's only" stuff gets around!

We need to stop blaming everyone else and start taking responsibility for our own crap!

Other than that, I say, again, I could care less if complete strangers know my browser history.

Scott nails it again in another excellent comic. It is fundamentally impossible for digital media companies to care deeply about privacy because the only asset they have to sell is your personal data. People are beginning to realize that Internet services aren't as free as they think, and Congress is even debating measures to restrict Internet tracking. 2011 should be an interesting year for Internet privacy developments.

They are:

Google Analytics
