Birdsong


Do you know that every word you write or every photo you upload to the internet will be archived and kept in the “cloud” forever, maybe longer? Many people think their chats are safe from prying eyes, but they have another think coming. After your death, close family members and other “interested parties” may obtain every email and every chat message you have authored, and every document of any kind that you uploaded. There is no privacy in the virtual world, and the real world is becoming much the same.

What happens when the law enforcement spy drones begin crashing and killing innocent people? I can just imagine a sheriff’s airborne drone crashing into a school yard filled with unaware children while it is supposed to be looking for nearby illicit drug activity. The American Patriot Act should be completely repealed and reworked to protect innocents from rogue law enforcement agencies and no arm of the law is innocent.

Grateful Dead: no pretenses from these guys. I love this bluesy-jazzy piece.

Have a Tuesday!

  1. I like this jazzy piece. 🙂
    One of my early Flickr “contacts” died and no one deleted his account. It looks as his photo stream was still waiting for his return. It’s certain that one day I will die too but I doubt if my family is interested in my documents uploaded to the net.
    Sad subject of our conversation.
    Have a Tuesday!

    • Your contact’s account and personal information will remain on Yahoo’s servers indefinitely. Some of my family might be interested in my blogs, but other than that there isn’t much to see except for Flickr and Megashot.
      Sadness is part of life and of growing; not desired but necessary.
      Thanks, Jola. 🙂

  2. One thing we need to do is leave our relatives, in your will or some other place, a letter with your usernames and passwords to emails, Facebook and so on so they can delete the accounts. Otherwise it is almost impossible to get rid of the accounts.

    This one of the Deads most popular songs. Supposedly written about/for Janis Joplin.

    While Ron Paul is wrong about many things his view on our lose of liberty is spot on. It will only get worse as we move forward. All under the cover of terrorism and protecting children for child molesters. We are ignorant to the lose of liberty under false pretenses.

    • The way I understand it, even if an account is “deleted” its contents and the owner’s personal info stay in the cloud. Deletion just means the owner can no longer use it. I once deleted a gmail account and nearly two years later when I opened another and tried to use the old password,, it was not allowed because the password was tied to a deleted account.

      I’ve liked the song forever but didn’t know it was dedicated to Janis.

      You are right about Paul; his problem is the same as with most Repubs., “it is my way or no way”.

      Thanks, Mark.
