Big Brother is watching us


Big Brother is watching us

For the ones who were thinking that only email, facebook sites and other private digital sources are watched by Big Brother (all of our governments, intelligence services, other authorities, other others?): Wake Up!

Also snail mail turns out to be subject to unwanted secretly spying eyes!...

From now on we will be watched even more closely than before: as a member of this group you can share your thoughts, experiences and mail art about this subject.

Who knows who is watching you (and to the intruders among us: who are you watching, and why?!)?

Heleen - these are old-school, not like the equipment they have today.  I made sure these were public domain photos before picking them off the wiki commons website from a 'NSA' search.  It would be great to mail them, but unfortunately they belong to the government!

Interesting objects, Borderline, thanks for showing them!

I've never seen these before, even never heard of them before. Of course one question arises: how  large are these things; are they mailable?

No worries, Google says "it intends to use the structures as learning spaces for people to find out about new tech." If they say so, then it is as they say. And it appears that Google embraces IUOMA, so we can go back to sleep peacefully.  :-|

YEs Heleen, that is how it works these days. The systems track all we do, and sometimes we must decide not to be tracked. Google is a tracking service, and when you enter their world with an ID, you are tracked and will see the results in the advertisings you get. This is the new world, I understand it, work in it, but don't like the developements.

And we know who exactly were these online people! :-)

Thank you Ruud, for sharing the Google Anaspylytics! Incredible, I think, every time when I'm considering... What on earth would these watchers want to achieve with all of it? 
'Safety', we are told. But too many data will cause too many mistakes as well.
I heard from someone who knew someone who once bought a one way flight ticket (and unhappily happened to pay cash) from Europe to the States, just because he wanted to decide by himself when and from where to travel back. Since then he apparently is on a list - which is sad for him, because he has to travel a lot to overseas to speak on symposia, and since then every time at the airport he's the dupe. Looses tons of time and gains a lot of frustration.

Welcome Neil! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. But beware, we're not alone here, be aware! :-)
Welcome Eva! Hmm, books suspected...
Thank you Borderline G. for your great pictures, beautiful artistamps.
