privacy and stupidity

November 8, 2007

OK, this has annoyed me enough to make a post about it.

It is common on many social geek sites for folks to declare that: “Privacy is no more! OMG! What are we going to do?” Well,the dissapearance of it is a whole other discussion that I’m not going to get into.

Now take a look at the number of these folks using Gmail.  How can anyone sit there and declare that the erosion of privacy is bad, yet sit there and use an email client that admits to not giving you any privacy?

Come on folks,  educate yourselves. Do you really care about privacy, or are you just so busy yelling “Bush bad! Bush bad!” that you can’t hear yourself think?

My brother and I decided to build model rockets to launch at the annual Beeno Races. We lost both of them to the trees pretty quickly. Luckily we predicted this and the rockets weren’t expensive. 🙂 Link to pics of the rockets.
