2016-02-21 The potential threat from “smart” appliances

1)    The Internet of Things is a major threat to privacy. Appliances, which will report via the ZigBee chip in the $$meter, are a key component.

“Smart appliances — part of the futuristic and vaguely defined Internet of Things — are designed to make our lives easier but they also have the potential to be intrusive in ways we’re only starting to imagine, experts warn.”





2)    I was told by a member that this “blog cast” interview of Dave Stetzer is very interesting. I haven’t had time to listen to it (it’s 90 minutes long).

Dave Stetzer talks with host Mark Kuether about what “dirty electricity” is and why it’s a part of electrosensitivity, how it affects our general well being, and how the problem can be addressed.”


3)    A “must read” sent by a member.

“An activist is someone who cannot help but fight for something. That person is not usually motivated by a need for power, or money, or fame, but in fact driven slightly mad by some injustice, some cruelty, some unfairness – So much so that he or she is compelled by some moral engine to act to make it better.”
