Down the social media blouse

David Weinberger writes a great response today to those who fret about the internet and its potential for negative impact on society which can be summed up in the following, delightful, metaphor:

“…we can expect that as we get used to the new opportunities for invading privacy, we’ll develop norms that rope off some areas and some topics so that even if we happen to have looked down the social media blouse of the woman next to us, we’re not allowed to comment on what we saw.”
