Hawaii and More Loss of Privacy

I have been to Hawaii twice, loved it. I have been to Oahu and the big island, I even walked over the cold lava to watch the hot lava go through the tunnels and into the sea, it is one of the most impressive things I have ever seen. I have a deep appreciation for the Polynesians and have since I was very young, unfortunately, we stole their islands from them.

So this article is not about Hawaii or it's people, it is a disturbing article about how the people of that state may lose their privacy. Some legislators in Hawaii are promoting legislation that would require internet providers to track every site that they visit and save the information for two years. Please go back and read what I have been writing about for three years (though I think only two years of my blog still exist because I deleted the first two versions of this blog) and you will see this is exactly what I said would occur. Your internet history is going to be part of your permanent record. Here is the article.

CNET - Hawaii may keep track of all Web sites visited

This my friends is infrastructure, it is planning and it is not planning for the end of the world, it is planning for the end of privacy. Peace.
