This is a video about an interesting topic – online privacy.

As technology has evolved over the past two centuries, so have our expectations about privacy.

Cookies and tracking allow companies to collect limitless amounts of information about us, often more than we’d share with family and friends. And in the push for national security, the government has collected vast amounts of information as well, often without our knowledge. With the NSA leak reigniting this important debate, we take a closer look at the state of privacy in the digital age.
