Name: bob smith

From: Ohio

Bio: "internet user"; wrote a paper about the internet, how it started

Area of Expertise: Research Scientist/Illuminator

Topic: Privacy

Headline: No privacy and rampant problems

Nutshell: Internet will become infected by viruses and hackers and there will be no secruity or privacy.

Vision: The Internet will become infected by viruses and hackers, and there will be no secruity or privacy.

Anti-virus companies will create more viruses so they can sell their newest protections against them. Hackers will break through "secure" sites until nothing is secure or private.

Everything the internet was created to be will be lost, ruined by mankind - like most everything else we mess with.
