you can’t disappear anymore

[there has been] a time just before the internet really took off, before people stopped writing cheques and Facebook owned all the pictures of our babies. Now our phones know where we work and live, who we call the most, what time we wake up. Walking down the street, our image may be captured by CCTV cameras on buildings, in taxis, on the GoPro cameras on cyclists’ helmets and car dashboards. Things have changed in the last ten or fifteen years.
