Welcome to Kool-Aid with Karan
Privacy is Inherently Personal
Every person desires a different level of privacy. What we feel is our desired level of privacy is tied to what we tie to our identity. The structure of our identity is held up by our pillars of value. These pillars do not only apply to the physical world, but the online world as well. Our online identities are as valuable as our physical identities. We communicate with our loved ones online. We pay our bills and taxes online. We apply for jobs online. We share our lives online. Just as we pick-and-choose what we value in the physical world, we pick-and-choose what we value in the digital world.
My hope is that the tools I present can help you protect those pillars most valuable to you. Not every tool needs to be used. But as with everything, being prepared means knowing what tools you have in your toolbox. Your values may change and as such the tools you use to protect them will be needed.
We use Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, and other companies’ products for a reason. They’ve created synergistic environments with convenience and ease of use as their number one priority. However, the cost of this convenience is our privacy.
Reclaiming your online identity from these companies is a difficult journey. My goal is to make that journey as smooth as possible.
