How to survive in the internet world?

(Bill Ames) #1

Continuing the discussion from Let them eat cookies:

I started experiencing the world on an intellectual level in the early 50s, long before we became a world community. My life work took me through many high tech experiences including the software we now take for granted. Unless you are a PC pro you are probably clueless about the internet, what it knows about you and what you should care about the internet knowing.

If there are a billion people on the internet then you need to feel some compassion for those people who are trying to keep track of all those people.

This topic should be of interest to most of the paranoid demographic, the world and the internet and all its tools are designed to watch you 24/7 and to use the information to make you, what? What does the internet want you to do?
