I doubt it is possible to have privacy on line. Whenever I go on line I remember to myself the whole world will see this and it can not ever be reversed for denied. If I have issues or I am ashamed I should not do so.
Sometimes things can be deleted from the internet In Europe there is a right to be forgotten and things can be removed permanently from the internet by application to this EU right. However, with blockchain (as opposed to the internet which runs on centralized servers), it seems now become impossible to fully remove stuff from the blockchain because of its distributed architecture and self policing. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? My experience shows the bad that can come of this and the impossibility of remedy for cease and desist orders. Maybe I was unwise to heed my brand advisors. Maybe this is just life as a non fiction writer. But the level of complexity that comes with protecting one’s copyright, data and privacy today is something that many people – including me – are only now really beginning to understand. The copyright issue really made me wonder how much original content I should be publishing online. The ease with which my childhood got linked to my love life of 20 years ago and 2 years ago by following a Facebook trail gave me real pause for thought.
