- Why is GiP?
This blog mainly exists for me to share my ideas to the world. Those ideas may or may not relate to technology, online privacy, video games, and pretty much everything in between.
- How much do you know about online privacy?
Well, I know more than the usual person that's for sure!
- How much do you know about coding?
- Are you some sort of cybersecurity expert or something?
- Then why would we listen to you about all this?!
That's the neat part, you don't need to. In this tiny personal space of mine amidst the vast expanse of the internet I am simply here to share my thoughts. I believe online privacy has become a somewhat difficult thing to achieve and possibly take back in this age full of privacy invasive companies like GAFAM* and other related entities. I know that for a fact because I've experienced it firsthand and it was one of the most difficult experiences I have ever had. No one needs to sacrifice everything to take some back; And I am here to remind everyone that no matter how rough the going gets or how full of despair the uphill battle towards a compromise between privacy and convenience gets you need to keep pushing forward. Because the goal is to not have 100% complete online privacy; Such is a luxury reserved for dreams. No, the goal is to take back as much privacy as you can and prevent companies like the aforementioned GAFAM* from ever violating your right to privacy ever again. With all of that being said, I'm just a simple man telling the same message everyone who listened to Snowden or Assange has been telling since this all started: Don't let them win, take back your privacy.
"Man truly achieves his full human condition when he produces without being compelled by the physical necessity of selling himself as a commodity."
