The Internet is surely broken, and privacy is in danger of being lost for good. To make matters worse, the average user is lost when it comes to how the Internet works and who / what is connected to their supposedly private network.

Now usher in the Internet of Things (IoT) era and consider that network devices may ship with data gathering provisions, corporate back doors, and security holes.

Add to this the fact that data collection is a multi-billion dollar business, which is expanding at a rapid rate. It's now the corporate norm to mine customer data and apply artificial intelligence to classify each user. We can only begin to imagine how this trove of mined data may be used in ways we didn't expect or want and never authorized.
