Stalkers

Last post is from March 30. Almost two months ago. That is quite amazing, considering I thought it was only a few weeks ago that I last spread words of wisdom to my little part of the internet.

I often wonder who is reading this. I know that there are some but I don’t know who. And some days ago, a more creepy thought occurred to me: Is anyone stalking me? In the digital age, everyone is posting everything, from thoughts, relationship status to revealing pictures of nights with too much alcohol or too little cloth on. Who is watching all this?

I have a friend that is totally pedantic about privacy and I often wonder if the person had some kind of experience that led to this borderline paranoia. So far, I have not experienced anything bad due to the multiple ways people can stalk me and I do not really care if strangers are looking at my pictures but I wonder was this whole personality sharing will mean to us in the future.

Having lived in a country where privacy seems to be valued highly, I often wonder why it is still the Americans that are (often) the first to embrace new social technology. People act concerned but are they really?

Anyway, I was just wondering. I think I need coffee.

(yes, I did indeed just add that last line so I could tag this post with the word coffee)

  • We Americans are not the first, we are just ahead of the Danes. Depending on the social technology, it may have been first embraced by us, the Japanese, or South Koreans.

    • Privacy concerns are bigger in America though. But yeah, a lot of technology in Denmark is embraced a little bit later than anywhere else.
