Information technology pervades our lives, and not only of those of us in the United States.  Ericsson has predicted that by 2020, 90% of humanity will have a mobile phone (in 2015 there were estimated to be 2.7 billion phone contracts worldwide, an estimated 800 million of which were added in 2014.)  With that technology has come artificial intelligence, able to read and categorise our words and images, and with it a commensurate loss of priv
