  5. "What modern data science is finding is that nearly any type of data can be used, much like a fingerprint, to identify the person who created it: your choice of movies on Netflix, the location signals emitted by your cell phone, even your pattern of walking as recorded by a surveillance camera."
  6. The problem this is trying to address is important. I'm not sure how I feel about this solution.

  8. "Ghostery is your window into the invisible web – tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons that are included on web pages in order to get an idea of your online behavior.

  14. "The Data Privacy Lab is dedicated to creating technologies and related policies with provable guarantees of privacy protection while allowing society to collect and share private (or sensitive) information for many worthy purposes. We do this by partnering with institutions, agencies, and corporations facing real-world privacy concerns."
