[ZDNet] If a surveillance society is inevitable, can privacy measures be embedded...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
If a surveillance society is inevitable, can privacy measures embedded in systems? (lol, Title has bad grammar!)

Quote:
Add it up and the influx of data—cell phones generate a staggering amount of geolocation data, transactions track you and social streams peg your whereabouts in real time—means we are headed to a surveillance society. “You’re going to wish you had an RFID chip,†quips Jonas. Indeed, the hubbub of RFID tracking a few years ago looks ridiculous today. After all, people voluntarily agree to be tracked in their social stream.

“The surveillance society is inevitable and irresistible,†said Jonas.

Man I loath these facts, meh!

I only use cash in anything I buy and I refuse to own a credit/debit/pay card or whatever else you call it. I won't own a bank account because I don't trust banks with my money. Yea I keep my money at my house, guarded of course with my 2nd Amendment

Nevertheless, you always should have a bank account. It's not needed to open an account and put like a hundred grand in it, but just a $100 in a bank account, debit card hidden somewhere in your house/car that no one knows about could possibly save your life.

Care to explain that "save your life" bit? Cause I don't get the point you're trying to make.

For example, house get burnt with all the money you had in there?
A $100 in your cc somewhere hidden in your car could manage you to get a decent hotel room till you figure your **** out.

This has been in the news recently regarding a missing person.
Quote:
A signal from her mobile phone was picked up from Savernake Forest, near Marlborough.

Mobile records put her phone in the area of the 4,500-acre wood 32 minutes after she left the club.
It's not incredibly accurate sadly (in this case)

I'm glad I'm not the only nutcase here that has a love/hate relationship with technology.
