Anyways, whilst i was waiting for the train, i asked this chatty mak cik what was going on. She explained quite laboriously on how the trains were delayed, how u need to change trains at kampung baru and change again at pasar seni. How u need to keep ur ears open for the onboard announcements coz trains were not going the full trip but rather a taxi'ing service was scheduled for kampung baru to pasar seni.
What the fuck. As i'm writing this, the train is stalled for yet another unscheduled delay. WHAT THE FUCK.
But that's public transport for ya. Or rather that's Malaysian public transport for ya. Because there's only one service provider, all delays and cock-ups get magnified la kan. I'm digressing.
Anyways, in the lrt yesterday, i believe it was just after pasar seni. This girl walked in and stood in front of me. I notice she was wearing her company tag and u could clearly read out her name, department and company name from the tag. Mebbe she didn't mean to do it la kan. But it got me thinking. How much info can one gather out of someone's real name and company like that.
I did a quick googling. And lo and behold, just from the name, i manage to get her office number, her designation and some other details. Granted it would depend on ur individual online footprint but that's a bit scary to think that it's not that difficult for people to find out about u from just googling ur name.
If u don't like that kinda attention don't make it easy for people la kan. My company pass doesn't have my full name so that's okay. Plus i seriously doubt if anyone would be interested to google me out pun.
That got me wondering, what is my online footprint? What sorta information have i been sharing to the world. Does anyone give a flying f...??
Train service will return to normal in 1 hour time?? What the fuck!!!!!!!
