“Nobody wants to pay a dollar to protect their privacy. People aren’t willing to pay a lot for that, even if they say it’s important to them. When you try to put it in dollars and cents terms, they don’t”

“There’s research coming out showing the interest that governments have in having these devices track people even though people are not aware of it. So, that’s a scary thought. That leads to these dystopian visions of what kind of world we’re going to live in. This brave new world of 1984.”

“The big fear is… that there isn’t going to be any kind of private space that I can say, ‘That’s my personal space that nobody can intrude on.’ “
