Ubiquitous Computing and Your Privacy
MySpace, Face book, email, and collaborative sites for both work and leisure are a norm on the net these days. But did you know all of the content you post on many of these sites immediately become partially owned by the sites themselves? And, taking items away by deleting them never really gets rid of them. In fact, in Groundswell by Bernoff and Li, they state that trying to take something off the Internet that you have posted is like trying to remove pee from a pool. Scott McNealy, founder of Sun Microsystems, perhaps sums it up best, “You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.”
Keep in mind that technology is everywhere all the time (ubiquitous) because of the onset of smart phones, and other mobile devices. You have a 21st century phenomenon.
