I posted an article yesterday about an invasion of your privacy created by the cell phone you carry. “Your Cell Phone is Tracking You” is available at http://wp.me/p5Z3-KK. Shortly after I posted the article, a newsletter reader using a pseudonym of “outsidethemarginals” posted a comment at the end of the article mentioning a recent BBC2 Horizon documentary on privacy, called Inside the Dark Web. It focuses not so much on cell phones but more about Internet eavesdropping by governments and also about Bitcoins, a new virtual currency that is untraceable.
A quick search shows that Inside the Dark Web is also available on YouTube at http://youtu.be/nW4LZqusWHE.
I watched the program on YouTube and found it to be very revealing. It covers many privacy issues. It focuses on the U.K. but most of the insidious issues it describes are equally true in the U.S. and in many other countries. I strongly recommend the video to anyone concerned about privacy and is questioning who is spying on all of us.
