Simply achieve CHIM.

Perceive the Tower, reside within the Tower, and dance upon the Tower. Just channel the Gods-of-Move-Like-This!

Why yes.

Though I think Vivec prefers to hip thrust a little more.

Indeed. Sigmund Freud would certainly be ... erfreut/d, if you forgive me a German pun.

I once met someone in a conference, then send her an e-mail afterwards. Later I logged in my facebook account (which is not connected to any other service), and, eccolo: "do you know this person?".

I have absolutely no idea how facebook managed to get that information. The only way of knowing that I had any sort of connection with that lady was by somehow peeking into that single e-mail (or having her look for me on facebook - rather unlikely).

Oh, and facebook also knows who's on my university deparment, probably by automatically googleing my name, finding out that I'm on Academica, then marking the names of who are my department mates there, and searching for them on facebook's database. I guess it's pretty easy to write the code for that.

I don't belive in internet privacy anymore.

Also: last year McDonalds and Subway ads would pop up in my Yahoo everyday around lunch time, but that's Internet Marketing 101.

Internet? Privacy? Don't be daft.

However, that is a bit eerie. I think, personally, I'd rather just assume it chance and hope something similar doesn't happen again. At least, I could sleep at night.

That's why I just don't use facebook or anything similar.

And I'm slowly moving out from my Yahoo mail. Last week they started using codes to read e-mails and suggest ads according to their content (which is precisely the reason why I avoided Gmail).

Google chrome isn't much better than facebook. I suspect it knows which programs are on my desktop, and also that it uses information from my time management software for evil purposes ("hmm..., so he spends 4 hours a day doing this? Let's find a specific ad for him!"). Taling about google, did you know that the Skynet scenario is a possibility studied seriously by people working with with global catastrophic risks?

I won't use any social medias, because they're frauds and have always been fraud. The whole "social media" business is a big, fat lie.

However.

This comes with being able to communicate with friends overseas... or your neighbour, just in the internet. It's in a way a deal with a demon; he gives you a boon, and in return you give something to him(ever wondered why FB is free?) that you never even knew existed. They feed on our ignorance.

Some people don't care, and perhaps they are right. Who can tell when they begin to use that information they get from us in a bad way, though? How long till someone hacks into the logs, perhaps? That's the risk, really. So much information can not be anything else but dangerous.

Isn't the greater risk that Mordred has joined the Snake Cult?

Pure Astraean or not, I swear I will burn you if you spoil the new endings!

I resolved to leave my ME3 game as it was until the new endings came out, but I just haven't gotten back to it yet. I'm so close to the end, I really should finish it. (And Skyrim... and the New Vegas DLC >.>)
