Data expert, tech lover, privacy protector. I started using computers and the internet early 1994. And I can not imagine how I would ever be able to communicate with my friends and family without these products.
It is great to be able to share through the internet. But (semi) public sharing has its downsides too. I like to read about and work on keeping the protection of private information something individuals can control themselves.
But sometimes it is good that there are forensic tools available. Just as long these tools are used properly. I hope people are aware of the possibilities to protect their privacy, and protectors of the public domain are aware of the forensic tools available, and use them properly.
