Maintaining privacy from the powerful duo of government and business is basically
an illusion. Any privacy we percieve is based on either ignorance or deception.
The Cloud of Things refers to a world where much more than our
computers and mobile phones is Internet-enabled. A world where our cars, clothing and home appliances are equipped with Internet-connected modules.
Consider these Illusions:
If the government requested that we all carry tracking devices 24/7?
We would rebel. Yet we all carry mobile phones and drive our cars.
If the government requested that we deposit copies of all of our messages with the police?
We would declare their actions invasive and unconstitutional. Yet we all use Gmail and Facebook.
If the government requested that we give them access to our photographs, identify
the people and tag them with locations?
We would refuse and call it a Police State. Yet we leave those details on our devices and applications while the updates on those devices and applications happen automatically, without our knowledge or consent
Consider these Possibilities:
Today's cyber-issues involve systemic social, economic, organizational, and political components
What if we decide to stay away from all these cloud technologies?
Our friends could tag, call or even visit us in their brand new cars and we would still be living in a world of illusion.
What happens when we are faced with a Rogue Business or Government?
See You in Space..........
