Don't forget that no matter how careful you are with your privacy, not using google services, not using facebook, not posting photos, not having an online social media presense, all it takes is someone you know to save your contact info on their phone and sync it with google, now they have your confirmed email, name, number, and address. All it takes is 1 'friend' to upload a photo with you in it to facebook and tag your face with a name/email.... now facebook has you too. And so on....

You can control your own info, but you can't force everyone else you know to do the same.

When I'm 60, I'm retiring to a cabin ala Walden. Fuck this technology.
