I really didn't feel anything about the video. Evereyone nowadays knows he is being watched. And if not, he must start assimilating it. But data and files can only say things about you, but they will never tell who you are.
I had already though about all of this before watching the video... and I am convinced that all the people nowadays know all of what it has said, even if they don't want to admit it. So, the video didn't tell me anything new, but I think is a very good video with a lot of information.I don't find it frightening, I just know that I have to live with all of that. It is the bad thing about technology, it is almost impossible to have a real private life.
Well, I find it frightening. In fact, the video makes me want to run away and start a new life in the countryside. It scares me mainly because although the first parts of my life would be missing on my digital dossier (there were no mobile phones or flickr, or facebook), the "teenager part" would be full of information and so will be my "adult part". And it would be fine if you could decide which people are allowed to know about you, but you can't!! So it may happen that a friend of yours see some funny pictures of you dancing on a party. In that case it would be okay because,well, after all, he's your friend.... But what if the person who's seeing the photos is your boss? And what if those photos were taken the day you were meant to be ill (so sick you couldn't even go to work)? You would be automatically fired!And about the thing Alex said "data and files will never tell who you are", it was very poetic but I'm not sure is true! If someone could see how you look, how you communicate with your friends and family, what do you like, where did you go, when did you go, why did you go, who were you with... He or she would know exactly who you are!!
I agree in some way with Alex. There's nothing we can do to prevent our data from being storaged (or just a little). It's better if we think about this from a positiv3e point of view: Thanks to all this information we can benefit from technology and other services.I think that it is not worth to worry about this issue.
I find it a little bit frightening but at the same time is good for technology because we are not concerned how watched we are and we write on Internet data that we thought nobody is going to see, and we are wrong, so we mustn't do silly things, although as Alex said, data files can only say things about you, but they will never tell who you are.
I not frighten about that maybe all my data is posted on the internet, but I was not concerned of the fact that all that data is increasing as we grow. I had never thought about it before and this video made me think of the importance of not depending on th internet for everything.I also agree with Sara, because I think that If someone watches every step you take I am sure he is going to be able to know exactly who and how you are, and that is what I find kind of fightening.
I haven't found it frightening at all; I really don't mind if people can watch my pictures but, of course, I take care about the ones I publish. I think that if everybody is in the same situation it will not cause me any problem.
The information given on the video I ready knew it, so it didn't impress me so much.It's true that anyone can know about us just by looking photos and reading the personal information that we give in our profile, that's because we have to be carefull about the information that we offer with totally freedom to anyone.
I really liked the video, just because I had never thought about this problem before!It's true that when we were born technology wasn't so global, but today, we are every day in the Internet, and we often log in new sites and blogs filling a lot information that many people will see. But we can choose where to enter and what information we want to give, or as sara has said, we can go to live to the countryside!!(P.S: The girl's voice was soo sweet!)
This issue has been speaked in the news and in many TV programs, so I don´t find it any frightening. Nowadays all of the teenagers, must know if you upload any photo of yourself in internet at any page or website there will be stored in the net forever, so you just have to be carefull of what kind of data you upload to the net.
What I feel seeing this video is that nowadays the tecnology sourround us. Andy is a really normal actual girl and all his live is like any normal person. We do not realise that we are giving our information in all the web pages we enter or with our photos in the social networks, but this video show us the rality of our lives.Most of the current people is in the same position that Andy, so she is only an example of our lives.
