It's time to turn the clock back on some aspects of technology before our society is enslaved by techno-bullies.
The internet is not a safe place. I hope this doesn't come as a surprise, but anything you do online is fair game for freind or foe. Forever.
That goes for everybody. Ask Donald Trump. It can suck.
Seriously though...our electorial system is under seige by hackers from Russia. Our entire infrastructure is constantly being attacked by hackers of every kind.
State-sponsored. Criminals. Punks with vendettas. Nerd thrill-seekers.
Hackers have demonstrated that nothing is safe - your bank account, The White House, The Pentagon, The Democratic National Headquarters, and every business in America are being assaulted daily.
Daily. Think about that.
The answer is to bring back hard copy. Paper instead of emails. Erasable electronic tablets could even work. There has to be other options.
Communications for our government, for our manufacturers, our schools, stores, and everywhere we do business...should be documented on something that can't be hacked.
Think about it. No more hackers disrupting our lives. A low tech approach is often the answer to a complicated situation. If we put our collective brains together there's got to be more methods than what I offered here.
The Internet would continue as it is, with the caution that it's better used for entertainment than storing important information that could ruin our country.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
