Well This Is Awkward

House and Senate Republicans created a stir with their support for a law that would allow internet providers to sell sell subscribers' internet data including their browsing history.

That got net neutrality advocate, Adam McElhaney thinking. Why not crowdsource funds to buy the browsing history of all congressmen, executives and their families and put it all online in a searchable database. Everything they've looked at, searched for or visited - medical records, porn sites, every conceivable online peccadillo.

That could give "Hi honey, I'm home" a brand new dimension. Endless hilarity ensues. "You did WHAT?"

"No, You Can't Buy Congress's Internet Data, Or Anyone Else's"

". . . here's the real problem: you can't buy Congress' internet data. You can't buy my internet data. You can't buy your internet data. That's not how this works. It's a common misconception."

But I'll bet you it can be hacked.

Yes, anything on-line can be hacked by someone with the tools and the knowhow.

Mound, I admit to being a bit confused by the conflict between the technical claims of the site you posted and the one I posted. Here's one from a CBC As It Happens interview that sort of runs up the middle.

The way I see it, anything I'm not prepared to post on the wall of our nearby bus station I won't put on the Internet.
