"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?

Facebook made headlines with the Cambridge Analytica scandal this past March, but there is another privacy leak that seems to have seeped through the cracks undetected. Announced by multiple news outlets, it was revealed that the biggest mobile carriers - Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint - have been sharing the data and location of their customers and users for the past few years without consent. Real time location tracking has been a hidden feature in phones associated with these companies, and they have been sending the data through the servers of Locationsmart and Securus, third party corporations that now have the information of individuals across the United States. For the time being, the government has called into court the people involved, but announced that they will be reviewing corporate activities to see what further actions must be taken.
