I feel like I have a very liberal view on privacy. I know that in the near future, the convenience of technology will override our need for privacy. In fact, Facebook, Twitter and other social networks have been pushing our privacy limits for years. We post things to our social networks about our private lives that 10 years ago would have seemed outrageous and a serious breech of privacy if the online world saw it.

One day, if we drive past the pharmacy, and our perscription is ready, we'll get a notification. Our refrigerator will have sensors and will be able to notify us that we also need milk when we're at the supermarket.
