Personal Technology Issues


“Living within the artificial, reconstructed, arbitrary environments that are strictly the products of human conception, we have no way to be sure that we know what is true and what is not… The role of the media in all this is to confirm the validity of the arbitrary world in which we live… to project that world, via images, into our heads, all of us at the same time."  Jerry Mander

We no longer control our online experiences.  Every click or touch we make -- and more -- is harvested for data.  The data is packaged and sold to different buyers for purposes unknown to us -- from marketing to monitoring. The map offers background material and tools to help us make more informed decisions.

Personal exposures to wireless and other technologies may be voluntary or involuntary.  The technologies themselves have features which may increase our use of them:  their addictiveness, their convenience, their pervasiveness.  These maps introduce these other characteristics that indirectly cause us to increase the EMF atmosphere in which we live.
