I'm probably shouting at the wind, but we need to pay a little more attention to our digital privacy. I can't move to Wyoming and live off the grid, mainly because I'm too out of shape to chop wood and Pammy would shoot me before I reached the West Side Highway.
But I'm certainly techie enough to make it a little difficult on whomever is trying to sleazily Dyson-ize my data. Check out the TOR network. Use WPA2 or maybe a good, old-fashioned Cat5e cable. Encrypt my email. Use a password that isn't crackable in 10 seconds by a grade schooler with an iPad. Don't restructure my 401(k) on my smartphone. None of it's hackproof, but at least it'll make brows furrow for a little while.
And here's a thought: Maybe keep my love life offline.
