Parental guidance is advised

Humans are obsessed with violence. It seems to be ingrained in our subconscious nature – in our very DNA. How often have you heard a car’s hooter screech and you whip your head around expecting (or hoping) to see a crash? More than I care to admit, I can tell you that.

You Wouldn't Download A Car

We have all done it at least once. Being a pirate. The scum of the figurative Internet Sea. Illegally downloading a crisp 1080p movie. In truth I have contracted scurvy from the amout of those I have. Thinking about it, it’s a lot easier to be a pirate nowadays than it was circa 1650.

Google is God

I have spoken a bit about the controversy of having a ‘camera on every corner.’ In that post I talked about increasing instances of surveillance in the public domain, and how when we are in public we are constantly being watched; there are hardly any instances where what we are doing is truly private.

No signal for television

Does anyone actually watch television anymore? Hasn’t that television “thing” just become something you turn on for background noise while surfing the web? No and yes, respectively. Well, maybe with a few exceptions like Game of Thrones (that Purple Wedding though).

A camera on every corner

Like any self-respecting journalist-to-be, I am of the opinion that privacy is important. I mean, what kind of grade could you hope to get, saying otherwise? But what if you were mugged? What if you were stabbed or held at gunpoint? You would want some justice. So what if, within minutes, the police could identify the criminal? Or, for example, catch the men who placed the bomb at the Boston marathon last year. Would you be so anti-Orwellian then?
