A Consuming Experience

Blogging, internet, software, mobile, telecomms, gadgets, technology, media and digital rights from the perspective of a consumer / user, including reviews, rants and random thoughts. Aimed at intelligent non-geeks, who are all too often unnecessarily disenfranchised by excessive use of tech jargon, this blog aims to be informative and practical without being patronising. With guides, tutorials, tips - and the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.

If you haven't seen these Wired items, they're worth a read.

I of course am on the side of privacy and civil liberties, which I feel are particularly at risk of unwarranted erosion in the light of the Internet and modern technology, as you'll know if you've read my rants on ID cards.

Bruce Schneier certainly articulates very well my own feelings about the key issues and his book Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Uncertain World is now high up on my "must read" list.

I'm with you Improbulus. This is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. With the advent of relatively cheap broadband internet, the blurring of our desktops and the web, and governments initiating legislation in the name of national security, our privacy (and security) is being violated on a daily basis.

Thanks for your comment and your posts, Blog Bloke. I agree. This is one of THE biggest concerns for us Net users, along with viruses and spam.
