"Database Nation"

It’s not often a magazine cover makes you go “gulp.”

This month’s issue of Reason sure did. Then I looked a second time, and got a chill.


Seeing your name in bold print on the cover of a deep-think national news magazine is one thing. Realizing that the satellite imagery on the cover includes your house is something entirely else.

UPDATE: It’s a shame they used my full name, which no one ever uses. If the cover had read, “Yo, Steve, they know where you are,” I might have wet myself.
