If you value your privacy you might have taken notice this week when Edward Snowden says "it's your 'duty' to install ad blockers"... the government surveillance whistleblower gave some advice on how average citizens can shield their privacy online.

Facebook hopes to be able to take advantage of the vast amount of data people are producing every day. 'There's just going to be a lot more data generated about what's happening in the world, and the conventional models and systems that we have today won't scale,' said Jay Parikh, Facebook's VP of engineering. Wow! An Artificial Intelligence that knows EVERYTHING about you and you freely gave it all the info! Creepy!

Periscope... where some of the best facilitators of conversation are just roaming around the streets. I happen to follow a Paris "Scoper" and here you can follow along and check out Paris the day after the recent attacks. Paris is beautiful.

Have you checked out TSU yet? TSU is a social network very similar to Facebook that has been around for about a year.

Matt Drudge, who is the operator of the DrudgeReport, one of the TOP news websites on the planet, reminded me of how the internet was about 20 years ago. He steps out to talk to Alex Jones of InfoWars this past week and it’s one of the most profound interviews I have heard in quite a while. Step inside the blog to listen to two internet giants talk about the decline of social media into "Ghetto" platforms that are either all owned by the same company or financed by the same banking system...

Visiting the Kennedy Space Center

Some pics from my visit to "The Kennedy Space Center" which is built more like a theme park for the future Space Tourism industry. Most of the park is dedicated to the work that was done by the Space Shuttle program. One of my favorite quotes that I found at the park: For the eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, but by a banner of freedom and peace. We have vowed that we shall not see space filled with weapons of mass destruction, but with instruments of knowledge and understanding.

Late Night Blogging and Hanging with the Scopers!

People who are active on Periscope are called "Scopers" and pretty much anything goes when it comes to "Scoping"... including porn. I do believe I even watched part of Jurassic World that someone was streaming in real time. Please NSA, I only watched 5 minutes!!
