Been in tech dev for about 30 years. I don't do facebook, twitter. I didn't do myspace. I avoid things like Alexa in my home, 'internet enabled light bulbs', vacuum cleaners with cameras in them.. and I put black electrical tape over any camera in laptops/devices.

People are often surprised by that, they think I'd do the opposite 'because I work in tech'

No. It's because I work in tech that I avoid those things.

There are 2 types of I.T. people, those who embrace IOT and connect anything/everything to the internet, and those who keep a gun beside the printer in case it starts to act weird.
