Abstract

This chapter briefly summarizes the previous nine chapters and then contemplates what an appropriate response might be to the information that has been presented. Specifically, it suggests that the first step is to make some decisions (How much privacy do you want? What are you willing to “pay” or to give up in order to attain that level of privacy?). The second step is to take some concrete actions to protect your privacy, and four classes of actions that can be taken by anyone are outlined.
