The EU privacy protections are the result of a tug'o'war; the Corpies are trying to loosen it up, while the people are trying to defend themselves from corporate spying.
We don't need no stinkin' commentators shilling the Corpies' viewpoints.
The idea that a "sentient web" will arise, which will make people "more effective" is TOTAL BUNK. People already have all the tools they need to be "more effective"... and we all know it.
We're not living up to our potential of "more effective" because we are PROCRASTINATING. If the Corpies are allowed to rape our privacy to make this "magical web", and IF it "magically" makes us "more effective"... then we'll only PROCRASTINATE HARDER.
In the old days, people like Cochrane would be tarred and feathered for trying to sell us all out. Maybe it's time to be traditional about it?
