2008: escape from Facebook…
… call me Snake…
And with that you thought you could master your way out of Facebook reach!?!?!? Wrong!!
The NYT reported a sort of nightmarish ordeal to have your data removed from Facebook servers once and for all… it actually reminds me of some lines I read some time ago about the spectacular attitude people have got recently in giving out large chunks of owns identities, despite all the fuss about privacy and personal data protection.. we are all cache-ing quite happily our beloved information, much more interested into adding friends to the already almost-useless pile of horrid nicks, without even considering than all those stored infos may be used against our desires, or as it seems will reside forever somewhere in the Net.. is it a new form of eternity we are all seeking?? Becoming a long string of 0 and 1 is the ultimate in cloning??!?!?
On the serious side, there were already some concerns about the type-happy attitude we have all got, particularly since the idea of sharing infos amongst sites to speed up logging in procedures and such is increasingly under scrutiny..
I believe there was a “dissertation” here (text in Italian) about our online attitude towards sharing-socialising-posting… as said
we are what we browse
we are what we message
we are what we chat
we are what we mail
we are every information we produce, access or transform
and every change we make in the matrix is and always will be us!
Just a thought, mind you…
