Privacy Is Dead

I though this was a fascinating ad for the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

The little girl hanging onto to the UAV drone.  

Reminds me of the wonderful classic film, The Red Balloon, where after the balloon follows the little boy everywhere, in the end, off he flews with it into the wild blue yonder. 

As much as we all wish privacy wasn’t dead, for the most part, it really is!

Between ubiquitous and persistent satellites, drones, and video cameras, audio and video surveillance, call intercepts and eavesdropping, computer monitoring tools, smartphone location tracking, facial recognition, body implants, and more, let’s just say you are never truly alone. 

For those who continue to dream the impossible dream of privacy, it is a noble endeavor but quite fruitless without either going deep underground or significant legislative and policy changes that can actually be enforced. 

My grandmother used to say that G-d sees everything and she was right. 

These days, others are watching as well!  😉

Fantastic Drone Capabilities Coming

Exciting video by Futurism on what drones can and will do. 


Swarming.


Wall landings.


Acrobatics.


Drone on drone landings.


Playing catch.


Juggling.


Building a rope bridge. 


These little drones are so versatile and dexterous that perhaps what they can do is only limited by our imagination. 


Soon drones will do everything from caring for people’s personal needs to building our cities, fighting diseases from within our very bodies, and conducting open warfare on the battlefield and behind enemy lines. 


Small and many is big and powerful! 😉
