@kyle I'm convinced that the only way to have effective #privacy is through legislation. Its unrealistic to expect the masses to implement privacy-aware techniques.

@farhan I'm actually writing a longer form piece on this subject right now. I'm not entirely sure legislation will solve it. If it does, it would be because fines changed the risk/reward calculation enough to remove the financial incentive.

Have you ever seen a delivery person double-park in a city? It's illegal but the occasional fine is the cost of doing business and much cheaper than parking legally.
