As we sit safely behind our keyboard, allowing the soft glow of your computer screen cascade your face. There are some things you don’t fully realize. And some things some people do, For one, the computer you sit behind in many ways allows you to be a fully independent nation. What I mean is this, everything in today world is electronic, digitize, and placed out on the World Wide Web. As such, your life could be in jeopardy. As you read this, you are within reach of a murder or worst. Death could be standing behind you, silent and unseen. At any moment you could feel its chill breath on the back of your neck as it reaches to tap your shoulder….
It is very likely, that someone who could read this post could die grotesquely and horribly.. Could even be you.
You tell yourself: Impossible. Not me.
For you believe that you are unknown and unnoticed. You feel a buffer of distance between yourself and others. You are comforted by your privacy.
Sadly there is no buffer. The fact that you are reading this post is proof.
As for privacy, it exists no longer. We have sacrificed it to the cause of convenience; it is our burnt offering to Lord Electron, The digitized details of your full existence are in public domain, available to anyone with a modicum of intelligence and expertise. You are exposed.
YOU ARE KNOWN
YOU CAN NOT HIDE
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
These words are more true then most would like to embrace.
