    Reminds me of Go-Go Gadget! Interested to see how companies will prevent screengrabs from being taken.

    Very interesting. While I agree that this could greatly forward our hopes for true privacy on the internet, I can't help but also look at it from the other perspective--the perspective of the other half of internet users beyond the businessmen, the government officials, and spies--the youth. Cyberbullying is a huge problem among the youth today because though it is done online, the effects it can have on people are offline and very real. Even if 'self-destructing' messages become the norm, it only takes one view of a cruel message to change someone's life. It is terrifying what people can say and do to others under the cloak of anonymity, I wonder what will happen when they are protected by a lack of permanence as well. Just a thought.

      I agree with you. If we can't necessarily be held accountable for the words we say just bec we can use apps like these, it seems like legal cyber cases could also become more complicated.
