I’m feeling a definite lack of privacy. I don’t know if it’s because I just read Foucault’s Discipline and Punish and am thinking of the willing panopticism of the internet, but I’ve been having these feelings that I should flee. Or, maybe it’s because everyone is jumping ship from Myspace to Facebook. Facebook has absolutely taken over. There is so much activity there that I find myself both drawn to it all day long and repelled byit, wanting to hide, wanting to delete my pictures, my thoughts, my status updates. Some more privacy settings would help, but at the same time, the unsensored reality is when Facebook is at it’s best.
Tonight, I just want to hide under a rock until it all blows over. But what if it doesn’t blow over? What if we have to keep up this sharing? I don’t think that’s the world I want to live in.
