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.
Quote is from the recommended Chaos Monkeys: Mayhem and Mania Inside the Silicon Valley Money Machine by Antonio García Martínez. Any copyrighted material is included as "fair use" for critical and will be removed at the request of copyright owner(s). Also reluctantly on Facebook and Twitter; but I won't mind or be surprised if you don't 'like', 'share' or 're-tweet'.
