I teach at the university level on privacy, technology, security, including dataveillance and data collection systems.  If you knew just how much about your life can be compiled about you, and either stolen or sold, you would probably be cautious about what you reveal online.  Our conversations aren't just available to forum lurkers.  Everything we write can be collected, compiled, and mined, by intelligent agents and systems crawling the web for this purpose.

Is this really true? I am somewhat concerned about privacy issues but I thought I was just being paranoid. I have posted personal details about where I go to school, live, etc but I figured this can be found on the web anyways. When I google my name, I find an article from my school's newspapers that even reveals the details about what I am doing this year! However, privacy/security is definitely a concern.

Oh yes. My students include intelligence and information officers in the military and law enforcement, as well as directors of libraries and corporate information gatherers. The research and texts we cover tell us just how much is out there. Those working in the trenches confirm that the death of privacy is upon us, and security and protection of our information is a real concern.

For example, I immediately removed my phone number from the google feature in which one's phone number googled reveals one's name, address, and a map to one's house. When I was younger, and single, I was stalked more than once. Now that I am older and married, I don't worry about that--but the potential for unwanted surveillance by strangers remains.

Actually, I don't use my first name for anything on line...lol...I use Airmid-The Celtic Goddess of Herbal Healing..lol

So, By divulging my first name, noone can actually track me down...

I'm Lynne. I'm a secret agent stationed in a nation in the Middle east...I capture bad guys, who shall remain nameless, and do Unheard of thing to them....

OK-My name really is Lynne, and I'm not a secret agent...but my other personality, XENA is.....heh.

That's the way I feel too! And they would BE real disappointed if they got hold of any of my credit accounts!

Well despite confusion we have had in the past MY name is Lilly. My dogs name is Sunny, but me I am Lilly. I have no dog named Lilly. LOL ok just had to make that clear I am not upset at all with people who have gotten it wrong before I just wanted to make it clear since apparently my parents gave me a good name for a maltese.

p.s. if you go to "MY Controls" above and then look to the left for "edit signature" i think is what it says you can put your name in there and it will show in every post

If you don't put your name in your signature, nobody is going to remember all the names in this thread.
