Remember that scene in MINORITY REPORT,
where Tom Cruise is on the run from the law,
but is unable to avoid detection because everywhere he goes
there are constant retina scans feeding his location back to a central database?
Today, Google is tracking wherever your smartphone goes, and putting an ominous Red dot on a map to mark the occasion.
You can find that map here.
All you need to do is log in with the same account you use on your phone,
and the record of everywhere you’ve been for the last day to month will erupt across your screen like measles.
We deny the cyber intrusion into our lives.
We watch the latest on the Kardashians or Miley or Taylor, pop a diet soda,
and force the murmur of Big Brother into the back of our minds.
But just one look at a map of your movements for the past few days in Red, pimp-slaps some reality back into you.
Yet, we can trust the government, right? Until you look towards Ferguson.
