Data Detox - A good BBC article on internet, lack of privacy

A good article about the lack of privacy, on the Internet and a programme called Data Detox, to help you minimize the problem.

Interesting, Bill. Thanks for sharing. Read the article and although I don't see any big alarm bells in the article, I'm going to try out the Data Detox programme and report back. Note for others that are reading, Data Detox isn't software, it's an 8-day series of steps you follow to become more aware of how much info is available publicly and not so publicly but still stored about you online and how to remedy it.
