But, Governments should not be afraid of their people either. There needs to be a balance between the two. I’m not one to start a descussion about that, I’d rather have a hand made bunker under ground in the mountains somewhere, so that when the shit hits the fan, I can survive, and go on to lead the revolution.
Anyway, did you know that October is the National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. I didn’t know that, but whatever. There are all sorts of ways to protect yourself online, all sorts of simple things that get repeated day after day after day on blog after blog after blog, so much so, that most people don’t listen to them anymore (if ever). Well I’m gonna change that. Right now, after the click is a list of ways that, if you follow, will make you incredibly hard to track, crack, and smack you online. Be warned though, as these methods are so crazy that even I don’t follow all of them (yet).
Disclaimer Everything you do online can be found out by anyone with enough time, resources, and dedication. The very act of connecting your computer to the internet is sometimes enough for someone to find out every single thing about you. No amount of firewalls, proxies, encryption, or safeguards can protect you from a sentient computer program hell bent on using your credit card to purchase bootleg copies of The Gillmore Girls Season 3 DVD set and then using those in an elaborate series of murders designed to bring down the entire Eastern World. (And do not even think of an excuse why that will not happen, because it already has!)
