Privacy, Security, Encryption I was reminded of Sun Microsystems' Scott McNealy's infamous sound byte (used as the title of this article) when I read about Google CEO Eric Schmidt's foot-in-mouth moment during a recent CNBC interview (YouTube Link). Here's what Schmidt said: "I think judgment matters. If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines -- including Google -- do retain this information for some time and it's important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities."

it makes it too easy for people to post politically incorrect opinions, which we all know are false anyways.

Without being able to look into someone's background, how can we judge their motives?

I will also post with my real name.

So... stupid question, but, is "D.J. Jenkins" then not your real name - or a portion thereof?
