we are living a world that every purchase we make, every place we travel, every word we say, is being recorded. We say that 21st century is the death of privacy.
I like fact that genetic info helps us to detect potential disease, but what if your HR finds out that you have family heart disease history, would you be hired? would there be any insurance company still sell insurance to you?
I like Facebook because it’s free to read everyone’s profile. Imagine that an organization can access to your list of Facebook friends and detect your two closest friends, or your boss, even your tutor. And then they create a facial fusion of these two in real time. Then the way of online ad would change.
I love GPS, because it’s google map and city mapper which help me to find ways in London. But your phone can easily be tracked by your ex, parents, or criminals. There is one alternative for you called the Wave Bubble, GPS jammer. With a flip of the switch i’ll create a bubble around me that GPS signals can't get in. But its very much illegal because its jamming signals would go on for miles around me. Imagine, you're the captain of a ship trying to make your way through a thick fog and a passenger turns on a Wave Bubble. The consequence would be deadly.
I'm so fascinated by this looming conflict, between privacy and the need for free market. In the future, you'll have a whole bag of GPS dot and you'll stick them on everything you own. you will never lost your key or wallet anymore. But will you be able to resist the temptation to track your boyfriend or girlfriend? Or turn on a Wave Bubble to protect your own privacy?
The thing i wanna change is to prevent technology and the free market from killing our privacy.
