Mind Reader or Hacker?

Dave Bateman Dave Bateman Profile: Dave Bateman

There is a pretty cool video over on youtube right now. It is of a mind reader that sets up tent in the middle of a public square and offers mind reading sessions to random strangers. The facts that he reveals about these people is truly amazing. If you don’t want the ending spoiled, skip to the video now. So here’s the trick, while people are waiting in line there is a group of “investigator” searching the Internet for information on these people, and they feed it to the “mind reader.” At the end of the “reading,” a wall of the tent falls down and shows the group of hackers and the person’s personal information displayed on screens.

I think everyone that uses the Internet should have to watch this video before they are allowed to post to any social website. Sadly, however, I don’t think it would have the impact that it should. But maybe, just maybe, they would think twice before letting the world know all their personal information.There is a reason it’s called personal.
