Some Sunday morning reading to share.
The Wall St. Journal has published a piece that (GASP) marketers are using info to sell to us. (DOUBLE GASP). Give me a break. Yes, it is easily attainable and yes, because in the Internet age, the info can be sucked off of our computers, it is something according to the WSJ we need to be aware of, but let's get real here. This kind of marketing data has been available to banks, supermarkets, and just about any other retailer out there for some time now. We surrender it just as willingly, if not more so, in order to get those discount coupons. The WSJ article makes it feel like an as yet undiscovered race of prehistoric people has been discovered. Look, until the impossible happens, and businesses are forced to pay their customers for the data they use, this will always be the case. And what do you think the WSJ does with its cookies?
