“I think it’s simple. If you care about your fellow human beings, you share what you know with them. You are what you see. You give them anything you can. If you care about their plight, their suffering, their curiosity, their right to learn and know anything the world contains, you share with them. You share what you have and what you see and what you know. To me, the logic there is undeniable.”

The audience cheered, and while they did so, three new words, SHARING IS CARING, appeared on the screen, below the previous three. Bailey was shaking his head, amazed.

“I love that. Mae, you have a way with words. And there’s one more statement you made that I think should cap off what I think everyone here would agree has been a wonderfully enlightening and inspiring talk.”

The audience clapped warmly.

“We were talking about what you saw as the impulse to keep things to yourself.”

“Well, it’s not something I’m proud of, and I don’t think it rises above the level of simple selfishness. Now I really understand that. I understand that we’re obligated, as humans, to share what we see and know. And that all knowledge must be dramatically accessible.”

“It’s the natural state of information to be free.”


“We all have a right to know everything we can. We all collectively own the

accumulated knowledge of the world.”

“Right,” Mae said. “So what happens if I deprive anyone or everyone of

something I know? Aren’t I stealing from my fellow humans?”

“Indeed,” Bailey said, nodding earnestly. Mae looked to the audience, and saw

the entire first row, the only faces visible, nodding, too.

“And given your way with words, Mae, I wonder if you can tell us this third and

last revelation you made. What did you say?” “Well, I said, privacy is theft.”

Bailey turned to the audience. “Isn’t that an interesting way of putting it, guys? ‘Privacy is theft’” The words now appeared on the screen behind him, in great white letters:


Mae turned to look at three lines together. She blinked back tears, seeing it all

there. Had she really thought of all that herself? SECRETS ARE LIES SHARING IS CARING


Mae’s throat was tight, dry. She knew she couldn’t speak, so she hoped Bailey

wouldn’t ask her to. As if sensing how she felt, that she was overcome, he winked at her and turned to the audience.

“Let’s thank Mae for her candor, her brilliance and her consummate humanity, can we please?”

The audience was on its feet. Mae’s face was on fire. She didn’t know if she should sit or stand. She stood briefly, then she felt silly, so sat down again, and waved from her lap.

Somewhere in the stampeding applause, Bailey managed to announce the capper1 to it all - that Mae, in the interest of sharing all she saw and could offer the world, would be going transparent2 immediately.

Expert: The dangers of ‘oversharing’ on social media


KNOXVILLE – More than 65 percent of all adults have social media accounts on sites like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Despite all the security features, is your information really safe? Are you paving an easy path for identity thieves?

Computer security expert Bill Dean, with Sword and Shield Enterprises, works with companies to show them their weaknesses and how to protect themselves. He and Knox County mother of two Karen Schemmel had never met before. WATE 6 On Your Side1 asked Dean to see what he could learn from Schemmel’s public profile.

“You have everything very secure. I could learn very little from you at all,” Dean told Schemmel.

Without being friends on Facebook, Dean could only find out Schemmel’s maiden name2 and some generic public information through some other online searches. For the sake of our investigation, the two became friends on Facebook and that is when oversharing becomes a big security concern. One simple thing Dean points out is the fact that she lists her date of birth.

“You may call into a call center or reset a password to verify who you are. They may ask what is your birthdate,” Dean said.

Dean went on to say when you couple that with information about where she went to high school and college, you can start getting into some trouble.

“We want to share everything, but we don’t realize it is like bread crumbs that someone can put together and create a new identity or use to know much more about us than we want people to know.” [...]

Even if you have your privacy settings for just people you know, Dean says everyday posts can sometimes be “too much.” He says you should understand that what is posted to social media should be considered permanent. Assume that what you post will be viewed by the world, not just your friends. Don’t publicize information on social media that you use for “challenge questions” to authenticate yourself to banks or reset passwords.

Schemmel says these are things she will definitely keep in mind.

“We try to build our lives but could be taken away by someone you don’t even know,” she said.
