Niagara Gazette — I’m not defending our country’s extremely overpowered domestic security programs or condemning the actions of leaker/whistle blower/political refugee/disgruntled ex-government contractor Edward Snowden. I’m just saying; if two days of writing down and hiding 15-digit passwords in secure tree-hole vaults around Western New York was a waste of time someone should have let me know.
There is something to be learned from all of this. No matter who you are, at some point in your life, all of your accounts will be compromised and all of that personal information will be put on public display in some way.
Some people will see this as a reason to panic and will find themselves crushed under the free-floating anxiety of the threat that someday everyone will really know how much you like the show “Pretty Little Liars,” not just your closest friends on Google+. Those people are wrong. This is a reason to celebrate a new kind of freedom — the freedom of a person without secrets.
With that, I’m here to say yes, I’ve watched every season of “Gossip Girl.” Who cares? Better you all find out from me than from a youtube video released by Anonymous; those Guy Fawkes masks are the worst.Vincent Davis II is a Cornell graduate, DJ, and market development specialist in the IT industry.
