Here’s a funny yet controversial story about a college-graduate girl from Duke University named Karen Owen. Normally we wouldn’t put this on a tech article but because of the nature of the situation plus the way how her ‘adventures’ seems to be so easily spread through the internet and across the blogosphere. I guess its time to make a reality check if there’s really such a thing as privacy on the internet.
The theme of the story: Karen made all of her ‘sexual experiences’ into one thesis book and put into a powerpoint presentation complete with documents explaining in detailed and exquisite manner.
This includes all the guys she hooked up with while she’s studying in Duke University. And she puts it on an evaluation progress sheet wherein she grades each individual according to physicial attractiveness, size, talent, creativity, aggressiveness, entertainment, athletic ability and a bonus.
Well, if you want to get the complete Powerpoint presentation. Get it here.
Now the situation escalates, when Karen decided to forward her masterpiece to three of her friends. Obviously, one member of that bunch leaked it to another person and then to another until it became viral to the internet. Now the thing here is how Karen easily collected all the photos, information of the guys she hooked up with via their Facebook accounts. Proving that even with all the privacy mumbo-jumbo Facebook is doing to protect its users from a 3rd party strangers. It should be your responsibility as a Facebook user not to put all your details including your topless photos in Facebook. Because even your so-called friends can use it to leverage against you on the eleventh hour.
Right now, the only person who’s confirming the validity of this powerpoint presentation is Karen. Her ‘guinnea pigs’ doesn’t have a word yet. It’s not yet disclosed if there will be a case of lawsuit that’s going to be filed against Karen Owen.
Actually, this type of scandal is something that isn’t so hard to mimic. I mean, you can just create your own powerpoint presentation. Hire a writer to put those explicit words into a scientific-way of writing. Get some photos from your friends in Facebook. And voila! You already have your own ‘Fuck List’. As you can see in the internet, it doesn’t matter if it was just a hoax or the truth – the important thing is how it entertained the people.
Sad but true.
