Noam Chomsky says that Google Glass destroys people
There is no doubt that Noam Chomsky is one of the brightest minds of this generation and in the case of invasion of privacy, American philosopher and activist has much to say.
In a recent interview with The Laura Flanders Show, Chomsky argued against Google Glass saying it was ridiculous, and that the permit be connected 24 hours a day ends up destroying people. Chomsky apparently was based on a statement from Eric Schmidt where said quote “If you’re doing something you do not want it on the internet, then you should do it.”
Considering that the device is connected and has a camera, Chomsky said that everything that happens around you goes to internet, which is an invasion of privacy. Orwell could not have imagined it better.
While it is possible to record and share everything that happens, Google Glass still has functionality to record absolutely everything without you noticing. A couple of months ago the same Schmidt made â€‹â€‹statements regarding the Invasion of Privacy that could represent Google Glass:
The reality is that we have to develop a new kind of label. Obviously it is not appropriate to wear sunglasses in situations where it is not correct record. You have a responsibility as well, which is to understand what you’re doing, how you’re doing and behave appropriately while maintaining all day.
