How "big brother" fits in today's society?

The video present on CNBC "big brother/big business" show the technologies that are used in today's society in so many good and bad ways. After watching it, it gives viewers a scary feeling that they are been watched every moment. Personally, I don't like it. The use of technologies in today's society is so broad that it is in a speed not many of us are aware of it. It is a change to everyday lives. People don't like changes, but it is coming whether you like it or not. People from government, education, corporation, etc are forcing the technologies into this society. Government laws, people habits, and way of thinking are changing accordingly to this big change. People are either taking advantage of it or be taking advantage of it. One of the best way to avoid the bad side of this big change is to keep up with it, know what is out there and what is coming.

Hello everyone, My name is Jim, and I want to get some feedback on my blog title.
In Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, there was a scene when Huck was been pulled from his left and right whether to report Jim in or to rescue him. Well, I am in the same situation when I am been ask how to keep work and family in balance. My family and work are both dear to me. My family is what I am working for, and my work is what I do to support my family. This is the reason why it is so important for me to know that how to keep work and family in balance. Looking back in the years, I feel I tend to value more of my work than my family. Although, my wife never complains. When I compare with others, I can see it clearly I spend more time at work than at home.
