Do you care about privacy?
Updated: Aug 1, 2018
Are you one of the ones who has just given up on privacy? Seriously, I want to know so please comment on AITruth.org or on LinkedIn.
I recently sat with a group of women ranging from mid-40's up to 80 years old; and one of them in the course of our your-data's-not-safe discussion said, “why do I care about data privacy anyway”. I was shocked. Then she added, “if you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear”.
I have really not even considered that a person wouldn't want their privacy. I mean yeah, its virtually impossible these days to get privacy without opting out of life, but, to not even strive for it... to not even think it valuable. Wow! So then of course, this got me thinking are there others out there who don't care about their privacy?
So then I went looking online (I’m nothing if not ironic), to see if others agreed with this mentality. There are tons of people who have just given up or they have this "nothing to hide” idealism. See this article of an employee having a chip implanted in him. I'm very interested to hear everyone's perspectives. Please share your fears about privacy or why you are not concerned about it. Was there a specific moment when privacy saved you or did you in?
