| Every time we use a loyalty card at a retailer, our names are correlated
| with our purchases and entered into giant databases. Every time we pass an
| electronic toll booth on the highway, every time we use a cell phone or a
| credit card, our locations are being recorded, analyzed and stored. Every
| time we go to see a doctor, submit an insurance claim, pay our utility
| bills, interact with the government, or go online, the picture gleaned from
| our actions and states grows finer and fatter.
