The irony of privacy

There has been a lot of buzz about privacy issues on Facebook recently. The new Beacon platform ruined the joy of Christmas surprises for many people and the privacy groups are gaining a momentum with critique of the platform to a degree where the company is actually forced to change its business model. Ironically, Mark Zuckerberg experienced some if this himself. Well, not really, but in an indirect way. Kara Swisher just blogged about the story where some private information about Zuckerberg got released to the web and the reaction of FB.

I found it interesting.
