[nfbwatlk] Another device to help us "see"

Personally, I think we were better off before much of the current technohype
came on the scene. And not all of us had doubts and fears.

Frankly, I believe that FB, Twitter and Gmail users are mortgaging their
souls to advertisers. Ever wonder why those services are free? They're
marketing their principal commodity -- YOU -- to their advertisers.

So I consider us much more exposed now than we were in the "good old days".
That's one reason I never send Gmail and am not on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn,

But before there were scanners, the KNFB reader, computers and 
all, we all had to have people read us all kinds of sensitive 
stuff.  I always tried to find people through church, because I 
figured I had less of a chance of getting ripped off, but there 
was and is no guarantee.  It's a whole different crazy world out 
there now.  I notice young people don't have some of the same 
doubts and fears we um, dare I say, older folks have.  Today as I 
was heading for work, I had this daydream of technology suddenly 
stopping and going back to what was available in the 1950's.  I 
had to laugh, thinking about having to dial a phone again, and 
use a typewriter (probably not even an electric one).  Lol.
