Well, if you feel it's old-fashioned, then you'll view me as ancient.
Back when it was first possible to allow utility companies to draw money directly from a bank account I flatly told my wife that would never happen with my approval. Never liked the idea of somebody having my account information where I personally didn't set security for its storage. nor did I even then like the idea of any personal information being in a computer.
Of course, there was the added point of my not being able to withhold a payment if there seemed a mistake in the bill.
I didn't get a credit card until someone told me I'd never be able to rent a car without one. Or check into a decent hotel.
Ah heck, the list goes on and on and on of all the ways I have not cooperated with those that want to make things "easier" for me to part with my money, my personal information, etc.
I've been working the Net at the admin level for a number of years and you would probably have a hard time finding out much about me even now, except for a story here and there ... by now they've piled up, I guess, but far between.
Heck, I started considering and worrying about "Net" security and privacy back when ARPA was started, so there's a bit of private information -- I'm an old geezer.
I have always found it difficult to understand the lax attitudes I've run into over the years related to privacy and security, and not just on the Net. And not just at the personal level. Governmments and companies as well.
But with government, I think privacy is out the window. Left the farm. Pandora's Box is open. Governments lead the way to trampling all over privacy and companies gladly followed them out the window, off the farm, and prying open the Box.
I don't know -- maybe I'm just an old geezer out of touch with reality, but some of the stuff going on really, really makes me wonder. And, yes, I suppose I've posted tirades over the years on specific cases. Fat chance it ever did any good.
Of course, you'll never find me on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or any of those 15-minutes-of-fame sites. Lucky for me I'm too busy doing other things on the Net when brick-and-mortar matters aren't taking up my time.
