In today's NY Times story about microprojectors (laser/led devices that put pictures on any blank surface) there is a quote illustrative of our near-instinctive penchant for exclusivity: “I hate it even when I am on the subway and the guy next to me is reading my paper”.

Poor baby! The "get over it" rejoinder is appropriate here and we will get to the point where that particular domain of privacy is seen as ludicrous - but it will probably only start to fade when the pantechnicon includes retinal projection.
