Excerpt from Thesis :

Consequently, the large-scale implant of chips would certainly have damaging effects on people.

One of the latest reports of people having their privacy broken is when residents from Milton Keynes, UK, have informed police officers that a Google representative started taking picture of their houses. The person had been driving a Google Street View car which is part of a program meant to offer Google operators 360 degrees images of various places from around the world. According to BBC, residents felt that the man from Google had been facilitating crime and interfering with their privacy by making the pictures public. Apparently, the citizens from Milton Keynes had not been the only ones complaining about Google invading their privacy. However, the people that invented the Google Street View program have thought in advance and also added tools which people can use to delete pictures that they consider to have broken their privacy.

The Google car is not the only one interfering in the lives of English people, as Britain is renowned for having one of the most complex monitoring systems from around the world. Britain has approximately 4.2 million cameras watching over the safety of its people. Despite the cameras have proved their effectiveness over time, they have been harshly criticized by people stating that they have no privacy knowing that they are constantly watched.

Privacy is a divisive matter in the present, with people both wanting it, and, in the same time, being dependent of most things which threaten it. With time, the concept of privacy has become something which cannot be achieved any more, as technology has put an end to it. Serious actions need to be taken in order to stop technology from interfering with the privacy of people.

" Turkle claims that "our fragile planet needs our action in the real," which is exactly what the little girl was trying to point out. Her appreciating the animatronic animals more than the real ones is a product of technology saturation. Technology has become an annoyance: we all experience the "sense of encroachment of the device" on our personal time and it is difficult to cut ourselves off from the world.
