I love and am amazed by how voyeuristic the internet is. While surfing from link to link to link, I stumbled onto a peek into the life of someone that I used to know. I was surprised to find an intimate detail about that person that completely destroyed my original perceptions of said person. It is exciting to know things about people that they would never expect that you know. And while reveling in my newfound discovery, I realized that there are surely people who know such information about me. And that is just the nature of the internet: discretion and exhibitionism under the guise of false anonymity. We disclose things to the world thinking that these things will never be discovered by those who know us, but secretly, we know that they may be discovered and it excites us and entices us to continue.
