You cannot be part of modern society and not use technology which could track you. I try to strike a balance. I consider most monthly bills a lost cause, there is no privacy for them, might as well have them automatically paid. What I want to do is leave only the minimum of electronic footprints.

I do not plan on ever being a threat.
