Analog Equivalent Privacy Rights (10/21): Analog journalism was protected; digital journalism isn’t

Our analog parents had the ability to read news anonymously, however they wanted, wherever they wanted, and whenever they wanted. For our digital children, a government agent might as well be looking over their shoulder: the government knows what news sources they read, what articles, for how long, and in what order. For our analog … Continue reading “Analog Equivalent Privacy Rights (9/21): When the government knows what news you read, in what order, and for how long”

Analog Equivalent Privacy Rights (7/21): Analog Libraries Were Private Searches for Information

When our analog parents searched for information, that activity took place in libraries, and that was one of the most safeguarded privacies of all.

“Everything you say or do can and will be used against you, at any point in the far future when the context and agreeableness of what you said or did has changed dramatically.” With the analog surveillance of our parents, everything was caught in the context of its time.

The liberties of our parents are not being inherited by our children – they are being lost wholesale in the transition to digital. Today, we’ll look at the importance of posting anonymous public messages. When I was in my teens, before the Internet (yes, really), there was something called BBSes – Bulletin Board Systems.
