will privacy ever stop dyingby Daniel J. Solove

“Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”
— Privacy

I am growing weary of hearing news of the end of privacy or the death of privacy. Like news of the apocalypse, it seems as though declarations of the looming end of privacy are endless.

It is time that something indeed ends, and I hope that it is titles of articles, news stories, or books that herald the demise of privacy.

Here are some examples about the death or end of privacy throughout the years:
