You Have the Right to Remain Private

We live in a far more open society than at any time in our history. And by necessity. The world has sped up. 24 hour cable news and social media make information instantaneously available. Facebook and Twitter have allowed us all to finally do what we always said we would do but never got around to it–catch up with old friends, share thoughts and ideas the moment they are born, etc. Our lives have all essentially become open books. Or at least as open as we want them to be.

Because of this, many of us have seen the need to accelerate the efficiency of what a great majority of the world’s population consider invaluable–our mobile phones. I recently purchased a smartphone. I can’t remember what it was like before I had it. And I got it in January. But smartphones, as we know,  track where we go. Again, the book is as open as we want it to be. We can’t turn off the function that allows that to happen without losing most of the functions we love. But with the recent news that two of Apple Inc.’s most popular items can enable those who look hard enough to find out more information about us than might be comforting, I’ll be curious to see where some of us draw a line. If at all.
