Do you get enough back in return for your privacy?

The purpose of this assignment is to get you thinking about Internet privacy and its costs and benefits. It will also give you practice writing a short, Internet document and, if you do it with a partner, with collaborative writing.

Watch these videos:
Then write a short document that:
  1. Summarizes in a sentence or two and links to the CBS video.
  2. Summarizes in a sentence or two and links to the Google videos.
  3. States your view on the issue -- do you get enough back in return for giving up aspects of your privacy?
Don't forget to include the links -- assume the reader is online.

Print the document to turn in.
