Okay with all the cool gadgets communication has never been easier. We are now able to share information faster and often than ever, at home and on the go for example this note was written aboard the South Eastern Train 🙂
The question to ask is, what is the cost of this information sharing? Is it privacy? Or something else?
Lets look at a recent example that took place about 30 mins ago. In a 5 mins bus ride I was able to find out key information about a woman who was before that a stranger with no name!
