Three optionsThe way I see it there are three ways of handling the mass surveillance done by Big Brother.
Share everything you do. Say to yourself that you have nothing to hide from anyone (knowing that is a lie).
Move to an abandoned island, without any modern technology. Live as if it was in the 18th century. Nothing you do can be tracked electronically.
Use the technology, but be aware of Big Brother's mass surveillance. Hide, encrypt, confuse and operate in a way that makes Big Brother see less.
Some people might argue that there is a fourth option. I believe those people are too naive, but I can mention it even so:
Make Big Brother change, and put an end to the mass surveillance we're all under.
HideMy goal for this challenge was to follow the third alternative, to hide from Big Brother.
I ended up splitting the month in two, the first 15 days of the month my goal was to leave as few traces as possible. The second half I allowed myself to leave more tracks, normalizing my life. By the end of the challenge the goal became to behave in a way that would be "sustainable" for the future.
ResultOverall it was an exciting month, but I have to admit that I left more traces than I hoped I would. Hiding from Big Brother is not easy at all.
The results from different parts of this challenge can be viewed below.
