UPDATED

What a crappy and arguably hypocritical (see below for context) move by the Wall Street Journal, which has been running an occasionally overwrought but still extremely useful series of articles in recent months re online privacy. The WSJ is changing its own privacy policy in a way that mocks everything it's been complaining about -- giving itself the right "to connect personally identifiable information with Web browsing data without user consent."

More insulting, the Journal couches this shift in marketing-speak, such as the notion that it's merely "streamlining" its approach. Yeah, right, as long as streamlining means betraying.

Remember: I and other Journal readers are paying real money to use that site. We are not getting something for free in return for handing over some personal information. The Journal is just greedy.

I'm not sure whether to just cancel my online subscription or find countermeasures. Suggestions welcome...

Update: A Journal reporter emailed me to say that by using the word "hypocritical" I'm not being fair to the paper's news pages, which he says are absolutely separate from the business operations and opinion pages. I've added the word "arguably" before "hypocritical" above. Nonetheless, he raises a valuable point, and the issue is worth a further discussion, which I'll post separately on my Mediactive blog (and probably here as well).

Story
Introduction

A business guy involved in import/export; web development, design and branding; and a new startup project (currently in "stealth" mode) about which I'm very passionate. I'm accused by some of being a workaholic. Photography is also a love of mine.
