I wear my potentially incriminating personal data like a heart on my sleeve

Well I don’t really… but now we all can! I came across this posting while debating the validity of magnets and erasing hard drives for discarding  and thought it might be of interest. In many ways our computers, cellphones and other electronic devices are becoming more and more extensions of ourselves and can tell someone (in many ways) who we are and potentially allow someone the opportunity to become us (hacking and other forms of fraud). This recycling process (if you will) takes the vital source data of our electronics and allows us to make the virtual us part of our physical representation. At least that’s my take.
