Very little, as it turns out.
The smart and eloquent Stewart Wolpin has a good look on the Huffington Post about privacy, timely given that today is Data Privacy Day. (And yes, it's real.) As he notes, though, "Shouldn't every day and every month be dedicated to data privacy?” He has some very good, realistic analysis about why Internet privacy is a myth.
He has one point I don't completely agree with, though I understand his larger point: that if you open the door to your data (which most people do in so many ways), you can't complain. I do think if you open your door, you still can complain if some steals from you, you just shouldn’t be remotely surprised that it happened, or think your actions didn’t make it easier.
