So true and I think an effective contribution would be to create an Ontolog-branded ontology for Privacy.

I'm hearing people talk about two different kinds of Privacy. One concerns information NOT communicated to another -- implanted bugs and a personal journal are mentioned -- for which there is a presumptive expectation of non-disclosure byf its owner. This type of privacy out of scope on this forum in my opinion, as valid and important as it most definitely is, because otherwise we may walk into a cul-de-sac that turns people here off. More fruitful would be to develop a mechanism that promotes transparency and accountability when data owners' stated privacy expectations are not met by those with whom the data owner has communicated the protected information.

An ontology for representing those expectations seems appropriately calibrated to the mission of Ontolog.net. One that can be referenced within this text:
Facebook Term of Service (emphasis added)
"You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings.

In addition: For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License).
The present situation is like the dawn of telephony -- we're all talking on a party-line, with zero expectation of privacy, now it's time to create an SS7 protocol for the Internet, if you will. In the meantime, I'll leave hardware matters to others who have more sway than the soapbox we have here.
