Everyone will soon know all about everyone via the Internet.

A handy laptop can be used anywhere in wifi fields.

It has gradually become a well-known phenomenon that it is possible to monitor everything we do on the Internet. In Europe and many other parts of the world many laws have been established on this subject, but nothing helps – the Internet has a for- and backdrop, and in particular the latter is a jungle for ordinary users to figure out.

The Internet has never had a founder or organization that developed this revolutionary tool in the communication’s worldwide network. If we should appoint a founder, it would be the Department of Defense in the US, who in the late 60s developed a safe but fast method of transferring secret documents, logistic tasks and manifests in a closed circle within the military system.

The US army system was gradually extended by people with experience in the computer technology and the “computer specialists” proceeded in a continuous flow and play with the possibilities of this new wonder with a focus on data technology and many other challenges.

Safety was suddenly a problem – no one had conceived this before hackers and other otherwise law-abiding companies and citizens began to play “cat and mouse” with the full gallery of everything that could be seen behind the screen.

And just behind the screen we find everything we do on our computer – letters, photos, web pages, documents and more. Recently, Google has paid large fines for “looking people over the shoulders”, but it is probably already implemented as “contingencies” and passed on in the budgets.

But it is actually quite easy as ordinary non-specialized person or company to monitor people’s movement by the Internet – The much-talked cookies can be used as soon as we look at a Web page having installed a “receiver cookie” which may register your appearance immediately and if you otherwise belong to the group of “interesting people”, it is possible to follow you in all your movements collected “behind the scenes on your hard desk”.

Web pages with passwords can obviously not be observed in this way – banks, ministries, hospitals, etc. – If so, the Internet would collapse and buried in a hacker backyard.

The question now is who will win the battle for security on the Internet – The various private security programs have served their military service – hackers have proven that they can break through these systems, although new systems are developed, they will probably be pierced by Wikileaks, that managed to be completely into the heart of the Pentagon.

Immediately, I see this as a choice between two evils – We may terminate any connection to the Internet or accept that anyone can look over our shoulders in this “public space”. People who already have their work in the public eye, such as politicians, actors, artists, singers, royal families with more is by definition trained in this kind of “work” – but the question is whether ordinary citizens will be able to handle the public’s attention and interest to you, me and everyone else on the cross and across frontiers without knowing “who” is behind the scene’s carpet.

The above is obviously not something I have been fortunate enough to explorer, but together with several other individuals I have been a “test victim” in an experiment and everyone was in chock of the amount of information, that could be downloaded from our PC without greater technical knowledge of the methods used.

…. But we can always truest ourselves with the words “What we do not know – will not harm nor disturb our sleep”….. Or is it vice versa…!
