Want to read a modern-day horror story? Massachusetts-based digital mapping company called MaxMind started decoding the EXACT location of Internet IP addresses. That by itself is an obvious invasion of privacy. However, to make matters even worse, the company’s accuracy is less than perfect. Innocent people have suffered as a result.
One example of technology gone amuck can be found at How an internet mapping glitch turned a random Kansas farm into a digital hell by Kashmir Hill at http://goo.gl/gED9Wh.
This could happen to you, all without your knowledge.
