We are heading towards a world in which our personal information will be difficult to protect. A number of technologies are converging to a future of great uncertainty. The internet is evolving into the 'Internet of Things' or the 'Internet of Everything'; more and more data about us is being captured, shared online and stored; face recognition and other forms of tracking are becoming increasingly sophisticated; and all this processed information can be supplied, on demand, to anyone, anywhere in the world. Governments and large corporations watch our every move. What does all this point to? Can we have private data in the new digital world? How will we live in a scoiety where no-one has any secrets?
