2. Then what is it OK to freak out about.

Look this is the cyclic freak out. As Rachel pointed out we've known this was happening since 2001. But since we Americans have no historical memory, it is all new and so freakable.

Personally, I came to the conclusion that privacy is an obsolete concept. Every corporation is busy data mining every second of our lives. It isn't surprising that the US Gov, which was given the authority to mine our data by during the collective 9/11 freakathon, is doing the same. At last they aren't trying to sell me Dungeons and Dragons miniatures and push up bras.
