AlwaysWoW! For a Great Great WoW in Life

Thoughts from me about things that are cool, that are WoW, that blow me away. Observations about businesses and people from a wide variety of life. Daily encounters - and thoughts outside the box, inside the box and without any box. New thinking, and challenging old thinking. Passionate about life, about respect, and about integrity.

Personal Data - How protected are you?

Okay - I live in Malaysia where I may, carefully, assume that the collection of personal data via technology is not yet as advanced as it is, for example, in the US or in Europe - but may be things change when MyKad is fully introduced, all bugs removed and it actualy works at its fullest.

ButCEO of Sun Microsystems, Scott McNeally, once said, that those being on the web should just forget about privacy, since there is no privacy on the web - and this was several years back. How much further have we come since!

Cehck out the weblink below - it reports how personal data are collected and combined - and imagine your life in a few years time.  George Orwell - 1984 - Big Brother is Watching You. I don't know who of those reading this entry know the book or the movie, but WoW, this link scares me.
