"Just by being alive in a hyper-connected world, each of us is a wellspring of increasingly intimate details. In the bricks-and-mortar world, there is voter registration information, property records, credit scores and transaction histories. Your cellphone provider keeps track of your locations, calls and text messages. Online there are "cookies", software that collects the breadcrumb trail of our web browsing, usually without our knowledge. And then there are the Tweets, likes and profile interests we offer up."

and so on.
