How anonymous are you? Google knows what you’re looking for. Facebook knows what you like. The CIA knows how to use your TV/Smartphone to spy on you. Your communications are being monitored 24X7. You are being manipulated 24X7. You are being tracked 24X7. To quote British author Alex Preston: “We have come to the end of privacy.” To quote former tabloid journalist Paul McMullan: “Privacy is for paed0s.” 

If you still think you have privacy, 21-year-old Russian photographer Egor Tsvetkov will convince you to think otherwise.

In a thought-provoking social experiment for his art project titled Your Face Is Big Dataconducted last year, Tsvetkov spent six weeks taking photos of 100 strangers on the Saint Petersburg’s subway before using FindFace (a facial-recognition app) to track down their profiles among the 55 million users on VKontakte (Russia’s biggest social networking site).

According to Russia Beyond the HeadlinesTsvetkov was able to identify about 70% of the passengers he photographed without their knowledge:

“The idea of this project came to me when I first heard of the FindFace app. I instantly knew that I wanted to convey to people how this thing will work. The people did not react in any way, although I was quite obviously photographing them. My project is a clear illustration of the future that awaits us if we continue to disclose as much about ourselves on the Internet as we do now.”

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. (INTELLIHUB)

— Arizona Sen. John Kavanagh (R) want s to make it illegal to film law enforcement, however Kavanagh’s SB 1054 violates the U.S. Constitution.

If passed, the law would make it illegal to film, shoot, video within 20 feet of law enforcement which would be punishable by a $300 fine and or up to 6 months in jail-time.

Passage of this bill would also make recording police for evidence after being arrested illegal, which is another concern within itself.

Additionally many people are now questioning how the police will actually measure and enforce the 20-foot rule.

<p><strong>(NaturalNews) For years, the idea that hackers could take down a large, regional power grid has been only a theoretical threat to national security. But no more…</strong></p>
<p><strong>Now, it has been confirmed that malicious code installed by hackers took down a large, regional power grid in Ukraine, plunging 700,000 homes and businesses into darkness.</strong></p>
<p><strong>If this can happen in the Ukraine, it can probably also happen in the United States. Imagine a large city like New York having its power supply cut off… or imagine nearly 50 million Americans who depend on food stamps suddenly having no more access to free government money or electronic transactions to buy food.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Ted Koppel’s recent book “Lights Out” examined precisely this scenario, and he concluded that the United States is woefully unprepared for any regional power grid failure. In fact, there isn’t even enough food stored in the Northeast by FEMA to feed the population of New York a single meal!</strong></p>

The project, Tsvetkov told The Guardian, was aimed to prove the end of privacy as well as highlight the difference between a person’s real life look and the image they project online:

Nobody noticed that I photographed them, but I used a simple camera and I didn’t try to hide it. One girl in the project texted me after the publication and said that it was a bad feelingwhen she saw herself, but she fully understood my idea.”

Tsvetkov’s art project not only revealed how much information strangers can gather about us using facial recognition software, it also exposed how we are endangering our real identities by giving up anonymity on the Internet:

“People are accustomed to differentiating patterns of behavior in society and social networks, and allow strangers to see what is, in their opinion, the best, most successful moments of their lives. Such digital narcissism is a product of a culture of free expression that is defining the boundaries of private and public in our time.”
