Leap of faith, Eloi-style

Szpylbert cartoon about modern Morlocks

“I do not understand you, but I believe you” says Weena, belonging to a group called the Eloi, in the 1960’s film adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine. Strange that a century after this very important novel was written, elite silicon valley businesses are relying on you to show exactly this Eloian attitude. Are “Don’t Be Evil”, FB et al. spying on you? What do they actually do with the data you give them free of charge? Are they acting in their users’ interest, as most people think?
