My heart goes out to Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities who had their cloud accounts hacked. Privacy is a human right, and the perpetrator of this crime should go to prison. One thing I've noticed is a reaction a lot of people are having.

"Oh God, what if that happened to me?"

Bad news, it actually might be happening to you right now - if you have nude pictures somewhere online. During an interview back in July, Edward Snowden said "You’ve got young... guys... thrust into a position of extraordinary responsibility where they now have access to all of your private records. [I]n the course of their daily work, they stumble across... an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation, but they’re extremely attractive. So what do they do? They turn around and they show their coworker... sooner or later this person’s whole life has been seen by all of these other people."

While I have sympathy for Jennifer Lawrence and others, there have been warnings for months. There are ways this whole thing could have been avoided. I'm not just talking about "don't post nude pics online." There are programs like Tor and Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) that are very effective at keeping out hackers. My point is, unless you go to the lengths of using Tor or PGP, you should not assume that the Internet is secure or private.

Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
I am an Atlanta-born, Sandy Springs-raised guy who dreams of being a professional writer. I am also an occasional actor/stand-up comedian. I am currently writing a espionage-political thriller. While I am not what most other people consider an artist, I seem to have a gift for literature. You probably will not see me posting anything like what Son-Neko would do, but I hope story will be enough for all of you. Actually, when it comes to art, think of somebody as good as Son-Neko and then imagine the opposite. Yeah, that's me. This is going to be more of a blog, to be honest. What I hope is that people will see my work and spread the word. On this site, I will post things like fanfics, short stories, and other non-canon work that you will see no-where else. The biggest source of fan fiction you will see from me is Code Lyoko, in my opinion the best TV show ever made. I will also do fanfics of things like Alphas, Burn Notice, and other things. Besides fan fiction, there will also be original work. My work will either be one-post short stories, or an ongoing serial, depending upon my mood. I hope you enjoy :). BTW, I am not a redneck, despite the name. Also, the picture above is me in Washington DC with my congressman Dr. Tom Price (R). I may disagree with his views, but I was still honored to meet him.
