On Tracking People

Thought of the day:

Imagine if we could replicate in real-world what it looks like to be tracked online. For each script embedded in a web page, we have a real person with a notepad following you everywhere you choose to go. This would include people listening to your conversations. Certain websites can have more than a few dozens of tracking mechanism in place. A few dozen people would follow you. Everywhere. Taking notes and seeling them to the best bidder.

Would we accept this society as we do right now with our numeric life? I don’t think they even go that far in China.
