The End of Privacy

March 30, 2007 § Leave a comment

I’m building a small business web site at the moment and the owners are shy about putting their picture on-line. My immediate reaction is how twentieth century to be so modest! How will they react to their children putting their lives online –  Here’s an interesting article about ‘Kids, the internet and End of Privacy: The Greatest generation gap since Rock and Roll’ from the New York Magazine site Say Anything

Kids today. They have no sense of shame. They have no sense of privacy. They are show-offs, fame whores, pornographic little loons who post their diaries, their phone numbers, their stupid poetry—for God’s sake, their dirty photos!—online. They have virtual friends instead of real ones. They talk in illiterate instant messages. They are interested only in attention—and yet they have zero attention span, flitting like hummingbirds from one virtual stage to another.
