How to be aware about your data?

Data Privacy Day,

The Day to promote awareness to Teens and Young Adults out there about how your data can go on the web without your consent.  Its one big important awareness since allot of Young Adults out there using the internet about almost everyday.  DPD was created back in 2009 when the House and senate passed the vote to make this day an official hoilday.  Now 4 years later, what do we have…a holiday about Cyber Awareness.  Most days most teens knows how to use the computer for basic everyday things mostly of the Majority commonly uses the internet, commonly use to go to social networks and online gaming.  

What is the best way to protect yourself?

The best is to not bring your data out in the public, for instance most of the time your post are send out publicly without your consent and it’ll be something that you have to help yourself in the long run.  I know that most the time your post are public and if you don’t want the world to find out who are you.  Switch it from Public to Friends to friends or better yet You’re better off with the custom features.  The best advice anyone can give you is don’t share every single piece of your private life to the world.  Most of the time they’ll know what’s going on with you. Most of the time they don’t care.  that’s why I say that privacy is important!

Customize your settings.

Its better to customize your settings instead of automatic that’s how ISP trace you easily.  There are steps into private browsing but you can take a look into that on the internet, Mostly you’ll have to manually configure your settings where it can be private to browse, there’s many, many how to’s  on the internet that it can show how it do that.  (Since this week I’m not going to thru the details on showing you how to do it, Since I’m always pressed for time)  Do the research on how you can do it, I seen a friend do that over at his place and I know you can do it.  But it isn’t bad you get around in learning if you put your mind into it.
That’s it for my tips on what you can do to surf safe from big brother!
Don’t have time to explain everything but you do post anything…use common sense first, learn what you can on net,  the more you learn the better. 

Past and Present, Have we failed to successed? The Dummist Generation

 Somehow I came across this book from a documentary called  Growing up online and here is this professor argument about how we declining as a Digital Age. So just to let you know that I haven’t read Mark Bauerlein’s book, now I have notice that a lot of kids talked about Internet memes and garage that they look up on the net and for me I give less of a shit about what it really means,  I know I haven’t read the facts on today’s society on how the kids today have been degrading and have been getting low grades now what I been listening to recent news I know that some face are true, I don’t think it’s completely true.  His Slogan…Don’t trust anyone that’s under 30?  If a young person under 30 reads it!  They’ll know what they’re reading plus it’ll sound like an offense to younger people.

Here’s one of the first things I can see why some he’ll argue on it is out there on today’s world but somehow I don’t understand. The internet was created for knowledgeable purposes back in the early 90’s when the internet was starting to become a thing of the future for everyone to use and it was to a tool that they say it was going to make a better future!  Today we are living in a Digital Age with content creators creating media on you tube, make a payment online, To make Appointments online, Schedule a date and etc., The internet has it’s purpose for about everything,  But I can’t see how we are the dumbest generation, One thing I can point out is I notice some young people do get distracted at school and work from the technology that we do in our daily life’s..  
In on of PBS documentaries (Digital Nation) that it examples most teens can be bad at multitasking which I do see that true most part.  Since I can’t multitask good myself as well while browsing on the net,  But I feel that when I was reading critics reviews.  They have given praise on how this professor is right what theory’s he’s been pulling out of the rabbits hat.  But somehow I can’t see what’s to blame for teens expect for the stupidity which most youths do nowadays I can say it’s very unlawful and uprightly wrong they have such power to go against any individual.they can,  but somehow scientist thinks its some chemical reaction to the brain that’s causing an uproar with the youth with the internet. For teens best friend and good weapon for social dominance on the web with one click away and a short written sentence on twitter it’s powerful weapon that anyone can use for the masses can use to bring a group of friend to start a party.      

Another Thing I think the Digital Age is making the youth stupid what others think is because of Video Games!  It was the reason that many teens haven’t past their grades from school is because of late night gaming and saying “its addicting and they can’t stop that is why the Kids don’t want to study on their homework”    In the documentary of Digital Nation the people there in South Korea is very big in the Gaming Community plus with all the other Eastern Countries like Japan. 
If you Think that Dummest Generation by Mark Bauerlein is just plainly straight right or his theory is just garage go on make your comment down below and let me know what you think about his theory?  
For me I really can’t support it because just the way puts down the teens in the digital age is just mean! 

Beginning Of A New Month….What’s Next for me?

I have plans to go events this month like going to Tim Burton exhibit in Los Angles.  I don’t know if that’s going to happen I want to make it happen, But I continue ask my mom that I wanted to go, But I always get a NO!, I not mad at all,  it’s going to last only once in a life time.  I hate to miss an event that I like seeing.  I’m going to see how it goes. But at the moment I’m going to be working organizing my blogs and work on my website that I’m currently working with a team of people It’s going to be collaborated with Social Networking and Gaming together…That’s how far I’m going to detail with it I’m going to be that like working on it in the middle of this month.  I do know that the games are going to take us a while to work for us.  We probably see it release the end of this year or 2012 release date around the winter of January/Feb.  But must and foremost I’m working on my GED and I’m going to be finishing it till Nov or Dec so that means I got to get my ass moving and start studying really hard for it.  (I’m going to be Tweeting less through out the month of Oct) But I do got classes durning the evening so as of now I’m going to start sleeping early on the weeks I have school, which starts now.  

But Yea, I’ll have to see about working on the blog and see how it goes for me, while studying three of the subjects I need to finish.
