Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the Sony hacks and how tons of information and emails are being compromised and leaked to the public.

That’s a big-picture side of all this digital hacking — we need to consider how our world will look when all of our words, actions, and intentions will be visible to others. Literally. Augmented and virtual reality are examples of a new kind of lens through which we’ll see the world.”  

“[In virtual reality] You put a pair of glasses over your eyes, and you can see when looking at someone, if they’ve mentioned you in an email and what they said. I believe this is actually an opportunity to move away from negative behavior like gossiping, etc., through something I call “Accountability Based Influence” (ABI) in my book, Hacking H(app)iness. While it’s going to be a huge cultural shift to deal with, it will also help us eradicate some of the negative tendencies our digital and social media lives have wrought.”

John C. Havens is a futurist, thought-provoking business speaker who explains the importance of utilizing technology to optimize your life in a positive way. He is a contributing writer for Mashable, author, and emerging/social media consultant. John focuses on leveraging the science of happiness with emerging technology to maximize value.
