Re: Exciting, but
Yes, and that's the scary part. I see the world changing so quickly and as exciting as it can be sometimes, it also worries me how fast everything can change.

Re: Exciting, but
@dl4588 It's right for you to feel that way. We should not just get caught up in the advances of technology without questioning possibly negative effects that need to be explored and addressed.

Re: Exciting, but
Yes, I agree! I think it's important to know that even though we're moving closer and closer to an all technological world that there are downsides to this as well. It's all very exciting, but at the same time, for me at least, it's concerning.

<That reminds me that I've often heard there's no word for "privacy" in Russian... > @mhhf1ve I came across an article that said the same for French, so I asked a Frenchwoman. It doesn't exist in noun form, though they do have the adjuctive privee, so they can refer to private data but not data privacy.

Re: Exciting, but
> "nothing private anymore....."

That reminds me that I've often heard there's no word for "privacy" in Russian... I have no idea if that's true, but it seems plausible that certain cultures might not have a direct translation for "privacy" because it's a concept that doesn't necessarily exist everywhere.

And it seems like some folks are predicting that future generations are just going to accept living without privacy.

And it seems like we're not far from abandoning all expectations of privacy:

I'm not sure how the Supreme Court would prevent private companies from selling constant drone surveillance services to police depts.

Ah. That makes sense. I didn't think we'd gotten to the cloning and feelies technology of BNW just yet. :P

Instead of contolling society by changing the dictionaries and historical records, we're just adding more and more unreliable accounts and making it harder for anyone to view objective results. The anti-vaxxers and anti-science folks don't need to control the media -- they just need to inject enough doubt on society's power structures so that no one knows who to trust....

Re: Exciting, but
@mhhf1ve I think we're closer to Brave New World in terms of the diversions that keep the society humming along as planned than the kind of obvious control employed in 1984. We're also probably even worse in some way than the vision of Farhnrenheit 451 because we carry our screens and diversions with us everywhere rather than limiting ourselves to such escapes in our own homes.
