At the very present, Amazon doesn't allow neo-Nazi and white nationalists on their services - - that's good, but they also shut down the WikiLeaks operation there - - that's baaaad!
And, the owner of Amazon also owns the Washington Post [WaPo, to the cognoscenti] and is closely tied financially to the CIA. That's also baaaad! But predictable.
This guy outlines how we got here, in a somewhat subtle fashion. That's gooood!

Privacy is DEAD and has been for sometime. This documentary illustrates how we got there.

A little alarmist and the first half wasn't anything I didn't already know but it brings up a lot of valid points about internet privacy and government data collection.

It's certainly good validation and support for choosing to delete your facebook account. Definitely watch it if you are seeking reasons to back up that decision. Watch it anyway and learn. Search engines and social networking sites are not the benign public utilities we tend to treat them as. Personal data is a marketable commodity in the world of corporations and governments. They are more interested in collecting it then protecting it. I wish the documentary did go more into the few ways that do exist to protect your online privacy, but at least the information about what's going on is presented well. One suggestion is to use duckduckgo.com as your search engine. They explicitly state they don't collect user data. You can also try a service called LastPass, at https://lastpass.com/ . It's more on the privacy end then directly preventing data tracking, but what it does is encrypt and secure your passwords and remembers them for you so you don't have to use the same password on multiple sites. It's also free on computers and comes highly recommended by many reviewers if you do a search on it. Worth checking out for sure. Finally do a little research on VPN's, or Virtual Private Networks. It takes a little work but its one of the better ways of setting up your internet connection to make it more private and secure.

It's quite disturbing but in a very eye opening way. It's worth seeing to really bring home the fact that privacy online does not exist. The movie is well put together; it has a nice flow to it where points slowly build on previous points to construct a big picture. The production is good quality. It's super informative but leaves that question open of what can be done. There are actually a few ways of increasing your online privacy. A suggestion is to use duckduckgo.com as your search engine. They explicitly state they do not track users and their terms and conditions are fairly transparent. Also checkout a website called, "Terms of Service, Didn't Read". It pairs well with the movie. They rate various popular websites on how well they protect user privacy. Finally, look up VPN's, Virtual Private Networks. It's a way of setting up your internet connection to make your online experience a little more private and secure, although it does take a little research and work to set up.
There is obviously no simple fix to embedded massive surveillance on multiple fronts but those are at least a few ways to start increasing your online privacy.

"A documentary that exposes what corporations and governments learn about people through Internet and cell phone usage, and what can be done about it ... if anything." from

Can someone tell me who is in the cast and the plot of this film? I don't know if I want to see it unless I have this info. It would be nice if all library films have this info - helps us decide if it's worth getting or not.
