I think for me what is problematic about spoilers is about the privilege* of the person who is spoiling. Media comes in various forms that people have access to at different times. In many of these forms, getting access to it early is part of a privilege. Being able to afford going to the theater instead of waiting for Netflix. Affording cable subscription plus HBO subscription instead of waiting for DVD. Having free time to binge watch the latest Netflix exclusive instead of attending to other responsibilities. Even waiting for a pirated version depends on someone with privilege to provide access.

Also, needing to wait for free time, piracy, Netflix, etc. means that until that access is extended one is excluded from participation in most fan communities unless one gives up the choice of seeing spoilers or not.

*This is of course a first-world problem when it comes to privilege in the world. But, discussing spoilers does open an interesting space for discussing privilege nonetheless, due to the perceived "freedoms" and "free-ness" that we get from the Internet.

I find the notion that internet security is about protecting privacy a bit problematic. 

(1) Privacy is a social constructed notion that varies greatly between social groups and individuals. Security on the other hand is a calculation of risk. Internet security is measurable and is regulated by standards. Security may or may not cover what users consider to be "private". 

(2) I find that when teaching people to be safe on the Internet that it is far more useful to make it clear that nothing on the Internet, including email and bank accounts, is "private". Someone always has access (e.g. sys admins). Data stored on the internet should be seen as more or less "secure". I think about it like this: if an American keeps knowledge about her money (how much, where, etc.) a secret and only tells her family, then this is "private". Privacy is about interpersonal trust and social relations. If that same woman goes shopping for a safety deposit box, then this is about security rather than privacy. The question isn't so much about social relations and trust, but about measurable methods of securing the money and information about it (e.g. locks, alarms, and guards). It is this latter category, security, that is most like the Internet.

So, from this position, I don't find the question "Do you choose to have your privacy invaded by using technology?" very fruitful. IMO, it is more useful to say that when you "choose" to use technology your accept the security risks of using it. Much like when you put your valuables in a bank's safety deposit box, you are accepting the risks of placing it there.

I am going back to school and quitting my job. That means that my position as digital designer at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is up for grabs!

Beautiful! I wish they could get there elevators back working. It is a long hike down and a difficult hike back (I'm an avid hiker and even I wouldn't want to hike back up). The elevator situation also meant that they were out of food in the cafe at the bottom. We waited an hour for an elevator up. But the views were definitely worth it!

The beer and food were good. Nothing that really blew me away but also nothing that would prevent me from coming back.

Good local place with a good menu. There is very rarely a wait. The food is locally sourced. I recommend the seafood.
