So Google is releasing free software that helps people keep track of each other via their cell phones. The devices use GPS systems along with something called "cell tower triangulation", which help parents keep track of their stupid kids as well as monitoring whether you husband is really at work, or to make sure your girlfriend isn't banging a cameraman from the Glenn Beck show.

Sorry Bill.

Look, this idea that everyone needs to know exactly where you are at any given time makes me wanna throw up through my eyeballs and cry through my mouth. You see it in restaurants, where a person walks in on the phone, seeking directions to their table, as though they might take a wrong turn somewhere between the door and the bar. These people would have made great pioneers.

Now I freely admit that all of this new technology is pretty awesome1, but it makes me long for the days when you could just disappear and no one could find you. I once drove cross country in a crappy car, with nothing but a few hundred bucks2, three pairs of underwears and suppliers. I made it in one piece and never called anyone for help. Even better, because there were no cell phones back in the 80s, folks could go missing for days before other people noticed. It was a boon3 for me, but it's sucked for the hitchhikers. And if you disagree with me, then you sir, well, you are worse than Hitler.
