Privacy : Food, Chefs, Travel.


Electronic privacy is a major issue. There is no doubt that every keystroke and connection on the Web can be tracked by someone, somewhere — a reality which flies against the general notion that we are each entitled to some measure of personal space. As Justice Louis Brandeis wrote, the right to be left alone is “the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men.”
