http://wearechange.org/got-chrome-google-just-silently-downloaded-this-onto-your-computer/ just POPPED-UP on my computer ... in Google Chrome, which I'm not even sure I had OPENED (I don't know---maybe I gave some on-bootup auto-program some permission or something) ... 'Putting a pin in that concern' for a moment, there's the "news" that the up-popping site "broke"---I didn't read too-deeply, but it said something about how Google Chrome 'silently downloaded a listening-software into your computer.' (I don't 'speak into' my computer, so the 'news' kinda resembles "static" to me ) Maybe the site goes a little too-far in the direction of 'feeling like Google "violates your privacy" by being aware of things you do with the tool they give you'---something that only 'violates your privacy' if you feel that "shared"-things are private. To me, the very-nature of the Internet is the opposite of private ... you put something on the Internet, it STOPS being "private." THAT'S how WeAreChange popped-up on my computer (not specifically why ... I may have given specifically-them permission to 'break news' to me, or it may have been they 'hacked' Google Chrome; I don't know). Since 'the nature of the Internet is "public"' and 'part of a dot-org's duty is MAKING things private' ... I don't know, but it reminds me that the original sense of 'hacking' was of a wilderness-expert in the Australian Outback using his 'knife' to clear a path through the Brush.
