This concept has always fascinated me. I am not most interested in knowing what you are up to (though we are all curious), but I wonder more specifically about myself: am I deliberately hiding something or making  an effort to not share or disclose?  We are ALL in the public eye whether we deliberately choose to be via social media or whether we are just casual travelers down an empty street in London. (the cameras, have you recognized ALL the cameras?) Sorry to break it to you, but even if you don’t see a camera, conceptualize the capability of Google Earth, then narrow it down to your physical being. All I’ll say, Raytheon. A local Dallas company.

As technologically advanced and streamlined as our daily lives have become, there is still so much superfluous nonsense and excess. There’s an app or a tool or gadget or unnecessary piece of kitchen equipment for as far as your imagination and patent office line runs. Honestly, it’s ridiculous, but i’m a minimalist; so my opinion is pessimistically against ‘stuff’. I have never played a smartphone game or a Facebook game. And I believe the invention of anything new should serve to solve a problem. Game apps fall into this category. Why are people so afraid to be bored? What is wrong with imagination? When is the last time you let your mind be? No tv, no music, just… The door … Read More
