Any link to the Wall Street Journal online: Make sure they go to the permalink

This is concerning any embedded links to the Wall St Journal Online. The WSJ tends to move their links, so when I followed the one that was in the ePub it went to a page 'story not found'... so... you might want to grep the few WSJ links in the ePub and make sure they go to the abstract article/permalink. Apologies if you're already doing this.. you also might consider NOT sourcing the WSJ (as they're obstinate about linking anyway).

Note from the Author or Editor:
We will be updating all WSJ links as a part of our update to the book--all links will be given bitly URLs in order to fix this problem.

Privacy of our communications bullet item

Sentence says "...privacy dependant more on lack..." Should this not be "dependent?" Spell check would not catch this, since this is valid in describing those that do rely on others fir financial support.

Note from the Author or Editor:
"dependant" should be changed to "dependent."
