THE TRUTH ABOUT BIG DATA+

download

Big data is the new word for big brother or big sister watching everything that you say online or on your cellphone, analyzing what you say you do, where you travel, and how your body is functioning.

Take away your cell phone, your computer, your GPS monitored car, and the electronic devices which are tied in to the internet and no one will find out what you are saying, where you are going, or what you are doing. Live without electronic devices and you can live a relatively isolated private boring life.

If all this information is monitored by honest, trustworthy humans then you have nothing to fear but if unscrupulous advertisers and criminals get your most private information and use it to their advantage then you can get yourself into much trouble. How you can maintain the privacy of your trade secrets or account information is still a work in progress and clever hackers will usually find a way to access it if they want it badly enough and have the financial backing to do it.

There is definitely a drawback to having your most private information known if you are wealthy or in positions of prestigious leadership. For the common human privacy should be of little concern since there is not much that someone can steal from you except your identity which can be a real hassle if it happens.

Going to reputable internet sites and taking out identity insurance is probably your best insurance against identity theft or revealing your account information to criminals. Also learn a little about Phishing scams on your computer which can trick you into downloading some Malware or Trojans unintentionally with one or two clicks only.

Big data is already used in an attempt to monitor criminal activity, potential terrorist activity, your shopping habits, humans that you know, spread of disease, your daily vital signs for some, and recorded personal health information.

In the distant future insurance companies will soon be able to better assess your risk potential for future accidents or injury based upon big data analyzing your daily bad habits and traffic violations.

Stock market trading is using fast computers and algorithms to make trades automatically. When your school work gets wired teachers will probably start to monitor your progress and start giving hints on how you can improve your schoolwork and how you can compensate for some of your weaknesses to some extent.

For the common human annoying ads when you don’t want them is what you will probably be putting up with the most. If you aren’t lying or stealing then you basically have nothing to worry about when it comes to big data.

Fortunately most of your private data or information is divided among the private companies which monitor your behavior such as the phone company, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and any other services which you use or join and they are in competition with each other so not all of your information is monitored by just one entity such as the government.

The amount of data generated by billions of humans is overwhelmingly large, about 40 zettabytes, and your communications are just a drop in a huge bucket and all not that easy to trace efficiently so you don’t have to get paranoid that someone is watching your every move right now. Someday you will be so centrally electronically monitored by the government that your chances of being monitored will be higher but the sheer overwhelming amount of data is partial security that you will not be singled out for total surveillance by one entity.

 

Potential tragic circumstances from your communications and interactions with others is only probable if you are lying or stealing or have some very bad habits or friends which you don’t want others to know about.

THE IDEAL: A WORLDWIDE BILL OF RIGHTS FOR THE INTERNET OR WEB!!!

internet

Relatively easy communication with anyone on the planet is an ideal goal which may not be realized in your lifetime. The reality is that internet freedoms are being quickly eroded by governments and rich internet providers or corporations. What we sorely need is standardized laws or a bill of rights for internet use so that even the poorest among us have an opportunity to safely roam the web and interact rather freely with the humans in it and the wealth of knowledge or information which exists in it.

Here is a Ted link which identifies internet problems and how we may potentially solve them for the benefit of almost everyone and not just the few and wealthy and politically powerful.

For starters here are a few rights which I would recommend:

A right to freely access scientific papers more than a year old.

A right to freely access medical research and clinical trials more than a year old.

A right to freely access bank IRS statements more than a year old.

A right to freely access IRS statements of corporations with a net worth of 10 billion dollars+ and which are more than a year old.

A right to freely access the IRS records of politicians and their relatives which are more than a year old.

Follow the money and there is a possibility of weeding out corruption in society and keeping it to a minimum!!!!!! Good knowledge is also power so open source information in science, medicine, and agriculture or food is vital to a healthy smart society.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SURVEILLANCE

surveillance_home

Surveillance: n. very intense and detailed observation of ((a human(s) who is frequently suspected of criminal and/or subversive behavior) and/or a subset(s)))

Subversion: n. trying to radically change or destroy a human organization(s)

 

Ideally we should only have surveillance of humans who are suspected of criminal and subversive behavior. Ideally the privacy of law abiding citizens should not be under surveillance because we may have personal or commercial secrets which give us a competitive advantage over others. The world is a very competitive place where almost everyone is trying to survive and prosper in their own manner.

Unfortunately due to an increase in immorality in western society everyone is suspected of criminal and subversive activities and there will soon be cameras and microphones almost everywhere including personal homes and buildings housing human organizations. Eventually we can all look forward to the day when we will have physical implants on our bodies to monitor our every movement, communication, and thoughts. Fear of getting caught or saying the wrong thing will guide our behavior and not an impulsive moral code with which we have been indoctrinated as young offspring.

This is a scary prediction of what kind of a future awaits future generations if we all succumb to an automaton type of existence where we are all led like sheep through our daily lives doing everything which authority figures request from us. A true master slave relationship in society may eventually exist between the ruling and ruled class but the truth is that we are already slaves of human propaganda which permeates society and deceives almost all the humans in it and predictably will only get stronger with the passage of time.

I am also guilty of subversive activity because I am trying to radically change society in this world by publishing the truth as I see it. Fortunately the truth is not something the general public wants to hear nor will I make any money publishing the truth so that the power structure has little to fear from my writing because money is power and I don’t think I will have enough of it in my lifetime to make a significant impact on the world.

Words and ideas are sometimes more powerful than money or the sword so I am not entirely convinced that my writing will not influence more than a handful of human lives for the better.
