Time changes everything

“Time changes everything except something within us which is always surprised by change,” wrote British novelist and poet Thomas Hardy. It changes the way we know information, the meaning of trust and the way we perceive the threats. All of these are surprising changes, and that’s why we evolve: we change ourselves to get adapted to environment.

One of the great changes that has come with the new Millennium is the gradual disappearing of the mass media. Nevertheless, the classics are still a referral due to their reach. Last cover from +TIME magazine gives its front-cover to the leakers. Or, to be more accurate: to the geeks who leak. It’s another great change of nowadays: who generates information?

Does anyone think that hottest stuff is PRISM? Really? Maybe you’re out of date. Note that millenials generation has assumed in almost full that privacy age has been gone for never turning back, and three out of four don’t trust in websites to protect their information… but they keep buying and sharing online, daily. The data is from video infographic by Cisco Systems, launched early this year.

Yeah. Time changes everything. There was a time when we thought of antivirus and passwords as essential. However, pass go nowhere without a double-factor authentication, like TrendMicro exposes in a recent post at their blog. Regarding antivirus, Ricky M. Magalhaes asks in about adopting new solutions, and he explains why.
