Web Bugs, Buzz and Paranoia

Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine comments on the NSA cookie story: “The government cookie story is getting stupider by the day. […] It is an issue only with the tin-hat society. This is a nonstory born of ignorance and paranoia and now hype.” The ensuing discussion might be one of the best I have seen in recent weeks.

Is it a nonstory? I don’t think so. The NSA did not follow federal law. That’s a story. Is it a major story? No, but hey, it is the end of December. Not much news out there right now.

Oh, and also check out Doc Searls post: The invisible old hat

Wanna get paranoid? Think about that the next time you visit a porn site. Or a site considered a threat to Homeland Security.
