Here's something you may not know

Every single time you go to Facebook or ESPN.com or wherever, you're unleashing a mad scramble of money, data, and pixels that involves undersea fibre-optic cables, the world's best data base technologies, and everything that is known about you by greedy strangers.
Every. Single. Time.
