There is a lot of fear out there about the new dangers of the cyber-age. Dangers like identity theft.
Not to mention the difficulty the age has created in discerning the difference between a real celebrity or false one…
And the age allows for the quick spread of information, no longer how stupid and asinine that information should be.
But all these pale in comparison to the real danger: the digitization of old family photos.
It used to be that in order for someone to have access to old humiliating childhood photos of you they had to either:
A. Know you personally, be actually invited into your house & shown by your parents where the family albums are kept.
B. Be the single strangest cat burglar of all time.
But now baby boomers are posting such pictures, largely with impunity. It turns out this kind of thing isn’t even close to being illegal despite ample evidence that it is much more damaging to the GDP than smoking pot.
I mean, how are you supposed to command the respect of millions when horrifying images of you are readily available via a simple Google search?
So, what can be done to stop this? Is there anyone out there with the brass balls to stand up for what is right and good?
No, no one? President Obama?
All right, not Obama. Romney?
Is there no one? Fine, I guess I’ll have to do it. I’ll lead the charge. I’ll make my voice heard…
