the anarchy of the network

There was a time we debated our right to ownership of goods, or the control of our own persona.

As these old-school concepts digitize, they are lost.

They are not coming back. 
They are disappearing at an exponential pace.

Technology asks consumers to trade personal information for convenience and services. 

"Trust us.", they say.

Ones and zeros can be duplicated infinitely.

Someday a 3-D scanner will write a file from a used auto part.

Your phone will wirelessly spool that file to a 3-D printer and legal or not, you’ll just print a replacement widget for your car.

And what can the assembly line worker do about this?

Internet users do not control their online secrets,
Google does.


Have a good weekend.
