This topic has been “looping” inside of my head since April, 2008. During DORCS/CLUC on one of the breaks between the lectures, few of us engaged into a pretty elaborative discussion regarding Social Engineering and the Internet itself.
Main points of the whole discussion was … do the kids, the users of those same “social engineering” sites actually realize that all their data remains stored on someones server, even after they have removed their account couple of years later, once they have figured what an ass they were; probably still are, just in different form.
How or has internet changed?
In beginning of mine “internet career” (late 90s) there was this merely dark but comforting place. To best describe it I’d like to use some of the words other then my own:
“Back in the old, dark days of the internet when men were men, women were men and children were FBI agents, no one cared what people thought of them.”
Also the words from the article I once read are still carved inside of my head … “Kids say e-mail is, like, soooo dead”
