+Jeremiah Owyang and +Arun Mathew  would love your thoughts on this piece

My view - this may change the way most of the social/mobile web makes money and "targets" its users.

Interesting, though I'm not sure I understand how this would be any different from the federal level regulators like the FTC who routinely review data breaches and suggestions of privacy violations. I think it's a good thing for the larger Internet community to carefully scrutinize new services and assess the privacy tradeoffs that they make. The larger concern that I have is the level of government scrutiny around "potential privacy breaches" rather than real security threats that are growing exponentially as the benefits of Internet crime outweigh the risk of getting caught.

In the talk, she mentions how it would be an absurd tradeoff for a flashlight app to use your contact info. I agree with that - but in the real world, if you buy a flashlight in the store, you are hardly anonymous - you leave behind a substantial amount of privacy reducing information, from your face on the security camera, to your name when you use the credit card. But that's okay because we accept the norm that the tradeoff is required for regular commerce. I think that over time as we adapt to changing technology and we see that it is only rarely missed in a widespread way, we'll accept similar tradeoffs. Requiring a privacy policy on mobile apps is just a legal CYA - what percent of consumers actually read them?

This is really cool stuff
 
Lovely Sky Monsters - 22 phenomenal photos - http://theatln.tc/NhfDh6 - Award-winning photographer Camille Seaman, best known for her earlier work depicting massive polar icebergs, recently turned her lens on another incredible natural phenomenon - storm clouds above the American Midwest. She partnered with experienced storm chasers and began to stalk a particular type of storm cloud - the supercell. On June 22, 2012, in western Nebraska, she encountered an enormous supercell and captured its many faces. With her permission, I've gathered here several images of that storm and a few other amazing storm shots from an earlier expedition she took in 2008.
