How I Beat NY Times to the Story

Privacy Vanishes?
Privacy Vanishes?

What’s one of the most obvious reasons we lack self confidence?

There are a ton to pick from aren’t there?

And it’s human nature to dislike those that have a ton of self-confidence.

How weird is that?  Talk about paradox:

  • We desire self-confidence
  • We strive for self-confidence
  • We hate those that have an abundance

Two weeks ago, on March 16, I wrote a jungle jeff blog post entitled, Privacy Is A Myth.

The very next day, the New York Times posted the above front page article.

We said the same thing.  But I broke the story.

Social Media is here to stay.  Books (sadly) aren’t, and neither is the NY Times.

So, guess this makes me self-confident and antagonistic.
