<![CDATA[The Head Lemur is pissed off about the crumbs companies leave all over his Web experience:

Imagine you are in a mall, walking by stores, and every merchant came out, said nothing to you, opened your clothing and photographed your breasts or penis. Imagine your children being touched like this. Now imagine these merchants selling these photos to anybody with a checkbook. And then they want you to buy their stuff.

I think that with metrics based on gathering places and intent, we can eliminate much of the privacy-busting marketers believe they need to do today. Then, the challenge will be to keep the whole Web from seeming like a shopping mall, which is the next dumb assumption most marketers will fall on.
