Open Source Your Life

While the open source business model is in many ways an admirable thing, it might be possible to become a little too enamoured of it. This may well be what has happened with the founder of OpenHuman, who suggests that we all go public with the source code of our lives and bodies – his argument is that, thanks to Google, social networking and everything else, trying to maintain your privacy is a futile struggle anyway. For those who recoil at the notion of baring their entire existence online, lest it be spotted by a prospective employer, the services of new start-up ReputationDefender may be just the ticket.
