My idea for the technology fast started when Jennifer Lawrence’s naked pictures made it from her personal device to the internet. The invasion of her personal life bothered me. That got me to thinking about privacy. Do we have it anymore? I don’t think so. The work e-mails we send are monitored by our businesses. The personal e-mails we send are monitored by Google. The Facebook messages we send are monitored by the folks at Facebook. The same goes for Twitter, LinkedIn, and so on. But the truth is that it does not stop there. The mail we send can be intercepted by the post office. The text messages we send can be tracked by our phone companies, as can our phone calls. If we use our debit cards or check cards, those purchases are tracked by our banks. Using a navigation system on your phone or on your dashboard? Chances are that your destinations are being recorded. I think that the same applies for home phone lines. It is not just our communications that are being monitored.
