You are under surveillance. We all are. If you’re targeted by a government, nothing you can do will save you. But even if you aren’t, the metadata of your life is being gathered and stockpiled by collection capabilities that even Orwell couldn’t have imagined, and it’s not just being done by governments. The big data industry is rapidly growing and may soon be on par with NSA-style mass surveillance, but with a different goal: to learn everything they can about you in order to sell your information, and sell you the next new thing.
