i'm working up a thing on this. better than 1/2 my stuff gets written in my head when i sleep....which probably explains a lot...BUT, i woke up understanding that whole privacy things and our behavior is the fault of sci-fi!
everything that the sci-fi writers over the decades have imagined, has come to pass..with the exceptions of teleporting and time travel, and i think they'll get there. all the stories of mind reading, having instant communications, face to face communications over electronic devices, etc. we can now do.
because we were so conditioned to accept the tech, the inconveniences that go with it, we accept also. we are not horribly excited that our government spies on us. after all, we have been reading about it for many years. it was the expected future.
