Programmers and I.T. personnel call this violation of rights "Electronic DNA" or ED for short.? A new vehicle's computer collects more ED (information) about your driving habits than a flight recorder does in a Boeing 747.? Wait until the Department of Licensing requires an Electronic DNA download from your car's computer in order for you to keep your driving privileges.? Insurance companies (Mainly Progressive) already have a modified flash drive that can be plugged right into your car and the data recovered will tell them what kind of driver you are so that they can adjust their rates to your driving skills.??

As far as the meteorite hunter goes.? Many depend on Electronic DNA collecting devices like cell phones, car computers, home computers, GPS, FM communications with built-in ID tags and of course, their trusty new vehicles.? Do not conform and your Electronic DNA trail will be in place to hasten your conviction.

It will not be long before the ED collecting devices will be there to testify against you if you are a nonconformist, excuse me I meant to say a normal person with a normal life who detests this invasion of privacy.

Unfortunately, some less-informed people unaware of our passsion for
meteorites are oblivious to the changing encroachment from "government" (wow
that's an oxymoron) that Adam's recent post speaks to, that privacy breech
affecting all of us already, with more to come.? Most of you know me (sort
of) as Richard Montgomery, and I have a shortened alias on FB as Rick
Bob.... which I have no doubt is already triangulated.

Hi Bam, here's an unapproving wave at you...can you see me???? Duh.? Okay,

Meanwhile, this is reality. [Crap....I'm now reviewing my words for my life
Has it really come to this???? YES!]

Fortunately I have a strong resolve, a stellar knowledge of the US
Constitution, a rigid backbone, a garden, worthy truck that can take me
anywhere for now, and the rest is what it is.

This List is about meteorites.? Adam's post is too.? All is a worthy
discussion, regardless of which side of the political isle we live in.
(Art, I understand your position, and agree to your worthy decision to stop
any political discourse that morphs from here forward when it wavers.)

It will be a crappy day when we all take cover from freely talking about

Yep, a law enforcement or U.S. government servant's best friends are your
cell phone, digital camera, online social profile and even your vehicle. All
provide them with valuable data that can be used to win future elections or
convictions. According to some of my friends in the know, it will not be
long before your entire electronic profile is permanently stored on
government computers now that they have the capacity to do so.

Just remember this when you snap a picture of the latest meteorite find on
BLM land and the Department of Interior comes after you for removing that
10.1 pound Lunar meteorite and selling it on eBay. If you are in a rental
car, they will know that it has been taken off-road and fine you $500.00 for
doing so since your rental agreement does not allow that beautiful fully
loaded 4 wheel drive rig to be used for what it was designed for. You will
provide them with more evidence with the images you post online which are
now permanently attached to your electronic social profile.

Many are sorry that they traded in their old capable cars with no built-in
data reporting systems for a new vehicle that will record everything and
report it to the thousands of data collection centers, batch the data and
forward it to the proper authorities. The "Cash for Clunkers Program" was a
success from a governmental standpoint now that millions of drivers can now
be continually monitored in their new shiny rides. Try disabling one of
these devices and it will render your vehicle useless and snitch you out the
first chance it gets.

Give me an old Jeep, a dumb camera and I will leave my Android cell phone at
home. Big brother has arrived!

People, who take pictures, might not realize that
smartphones, digital cameras often record all
sorts data about how, when, and even where in
some cases a picture was taken. Many cameras
record this information as meta-data that is
embedded in image files in a digital format called
"Exif Metadata" as discussed in:

Tools for Managing EXIF Data of your Images

Exchangeable image file format

Also, the EXIF Data might record when and how it
was modified depending on the software used.

If you want to see want image data is embedded
in yours or another person's picture, there are various
Exif Viewers, both online and available as software
that can be used to extract this data.

Even if you are not interested in this data, there are
people and companies that are examining the
pictures that you and other people posted to the
Internet using it for their own purposes. If you have
a smart phone or camera with a built-in GPS, it is
scary what people can find out you and where you
have been.

Some online Exif Viewers are:

1. ExifViewer.org - http://www.exifviewer.org/

2. Jeffrey's Exif viewer - http://regex.info/exif.cgi
