Transparency IS privacy

"Ironically, I realized long ago that the best way to keep your privacy is to act as if everything you do is in public. Only those who know you and love you and are intimate with you will realize how different you really are from that GPI profile you gave out so freely. Or, as Mikhail Naimy said long before we went digital: speech is at best an honest lie. To which I would add, the image of yourself that you project in a public space is the pathway to retaining your privacy. The Zen Koan of our freedoms: More disclosure, more privacy."
