Establishing privacy for yourself is first and foremost your own responsibility! Of course, some critical thinking is required. It's up to you.
Here's an excerpt of the article:
Thankfully, I’m not a celebrity, who cares about me?
Taxicab documents can be used to determine your whereabouts – whether you’ve been dropped off at a strip club or your apartment, for instance. Elsewhere, metadata can also be used to illustrate more opaque information about us. The status of peoples’ mental health could be determined from phone call frequency and overall smartphone usage, according to a report by MIT Technology Review. A new app developed at Dartmouth College can match patterns in user data with stress, depression and loneliness. Authenticated by survey research on student moods, user activity also correlated with student grades.
Last year, Japanese underwater filmmaker Yoji Ookata came across something strange on a dive: an intricate underwater rosette design that had been painstakingly carved in the sea floor, likely to attract a mate.
The likely artist was quickly identified as a pufferfish, but no one was able to capture it in action. Now, a team has captured footage of the pufferfish sculptor at work making his Zen garden of love. The male swims across the edges, flapping out sand from the grooves, and even at one point placing a shell in the center, likely to provide nutrients for the young hatchlings he hopes will take up residence.
The ocean floor still remains so mysterious. Think of the awesome biology that still remains to be found down there! We know more about the moon than most areas of the ocean floor.
