The title is a quote from a recent post from Network World, “Who’s to blame for Snapchat’s massive nude photo leak.” (Apologies for not including the link here)
But a reading of Network World’s coverage of the snafu demonstrates the importance of this post’s title, that the “Brave New World” of technology is probably upon us. And many of us – especially the affluent toting the latest and greatest gadgets from all vendors -are probably the most suspect.
In the US, at least, we’ve quickly become a “ready, fire, aim” society who slow down only when we find ourselves the targets of the most recent volley or suddenly discover that our bank account is empty or that a close relative’s compromising photo has been splashed all over the Internet.
And things won’t change soon (until I deploy my Google Glasses to get a different perspective).
