I fear we've already lost. I used to think that it would just take
some sort of major scandal to wake people up to the fact that
relinquishing their privacy wasn't such a good idea. Then, I thought,
they'd stand up in outrage and take their privacy back with
pitchforks. Then Snowden showed up and nothing really happened. Most
people didn't actually change the things they do because, well, it's
not convenient.

I see a future where the world, not just the digital world, is divided
into two camps: those who are technically literate and willing to take
the sometimes inconvenient steps to protect their privacy and those
who aren't.  The first group will be in the minority but will enjoy
privacy and anonymity while the second group will be pretty much at
the mercy of whoever can figure out how to access their data.
