If you're not paying for something, you're not the customer, you're the product being sold.

@mrkrndvs excellent question that I think we should all ask. I'm pushing for individuals that are "healthy skeptics" and question everything they read (especially online) to garner whether this is credible (truthful) and relevant (useful). I think we also need individuals (kids) that can find/read code so they can understand what they're giving up in the exchange.

@mrkrndvs thanks for the share. I'm in the process of following the lead you've established in collecting links and providing some commentary, and then heading to TL;DR. In this, I've been wondering about companies keeping/selling my data/identity. I've also been wondering about keeping my own set of bread crumbs online.

@mrkrndvs that's my thinking. I either share or use pinboard to share/save links. But, I'm finding the need/desire to share a trail of bread crumbs of stuff I find during the day. This could be a quote or thought from a podcast, a quote from a blog post, etc. I'm thinking these could all feed into my newsletter...while also providing the individual links for stories in TL;DR.
