Lenny, you post seems both condescending and dismissive. In particularly I would like to draw you attention your use of the word 'quaint' to describe other peoples views of privacy.
Surely the very nature of privacy is something that is going to be different from person to person, and someone with different views hardly deserves an invitation to 'drop out of the world entirely'.
I was 66 this week and I've been writing computer programs since 1963, I opened my first internet account in, I think, 1993. In short I have a wealth of experience of a 'world connected to the internet'. But I also have maturity, experience and a healthy regard for what others can do with personal information.
