Look at the advances of modern medicine, yet look at the new diseases and resistant forms of bacteria.
But there is ALWAYS a price to pay. To gain the wonderful benefits of the internet, all you have to do is give up your privacy and anonymity, that's it.
You just have to be a "number" in the grid and the world (wide web) is yours.

"In late 2007, a tracking tool called "Beacon" caught users off-guard by broadcasting information about their shopping habits and activities at other Web sites. After initially defending the practice, Facebook ultimately allowed users to turn Beacon off. A redesign of the site last year also prompted thousands to protest, but in that case Facebook kept its new look."
