Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Do you think these companies should be fighting for your privacy? They seem to be doing just that when it comes to ads. Microsoft is as well. If they are willing to loose some billions in this privacy war it says two or three things:

 

1. These are companies we want to keep doing business with.

 

2. These are insiders and they may know what is a risk for the nations of people the world over if we don't reinstate privacy and they will be just as much at risk as individuals.

 

3. We need to not leave them in the battle alone. 

 

We have been leaving our whistleblowers and cyber warriors alone to risk nearly life time imprisonment, entrapment, branding as felons or becoming forced turncoats by these procedures or suicide, as with Aaron Swartz.

 

I know these big companies are not at the same risk as those individuals but it does seem they are put in a position to be pushed to literally sale out our privacy in this case.

 

Call representatives and make them aware we stand behind these companies and we are watching if these representatives are willing to through our privacy under the bus...call all the way from the State House to the White House. We need to call major companies as well about tracking. We can't each call everyone but if everyone will call some of them it will be aloud voice to a group that can't survive with bad vibes from the public.

 

Share the idea with postings! Sweet Pics, cute and wise sayings and keeping in touch are important ....but so is this important for us and everyone we love. Just because you are not drafted or foced into a war doesn't mean you shouldn't volunteer. We can in a privacy war  with our voice and votes right now. That might not be true if we need or want to change it later.

 

This is about ads but the cyber war and control of cyber space is global. Don't leave it to chance.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

This technology would use a host of sensors to provide real time information on soil moisture, weather conditions, and other important field conditions. Other systems can track fertilizer usage and automate water pumps and other hardware plus special sensing technology can measure and track plant transpiration and stress.

GPS tracking solutions offered by Magenheim make it possible to monitor equipment and crews and make sure that valuable machinery can be tracked if stolen.
