1. What are the Threats?
When a state-level actor like the United States has taken an interest in
everything we do, we need to consider "What's our attack surface?"
We're all likely to have broken some laws; the most severe will be used against us.
Theft / Disclosure
It's difficult to keep compartmentalized what wants to be free.
We can't backup and restore any of our identities.
Just ask any victim of identity theft.
2. What To Do?
Your primary identity (the one on your gov't id) should be someone everyone respects.
Don't say or do anything that would burn your primary identity, or anyone else's.
Replace Email Ad Hoc
Keep using what you use today, and use other technology as you need to.
Credit cards yield way more predictive information than you can imagine.
Crowds are good.
Keeping everything clean is good.
Use Your Head
Be smart and alert. Just talk to anyone who lived through the 1998 riots, and entertain the notion
that the next time around, the violence may be data-driven.
