+ - Wired personalises covers with subscribers' data->

Submitted by Lanxon
Lanxon writes: Wired magazine in the UK printed private data of many of its subscribers on their new issue's covers. But not by accident. The move was to make personalised covers for a number of its subscribers, by using information about each given subscriber the magazine's editors dug up on them from around the internet. The reason: to highlight the current state of online privacy. The magazine's editor explains the reasons and technicalities behind the initiative, which is already causing a stir among UK media.
