Katie Holmes: good security secures her freedom from unhappy matrimony!

Katie HolmesOkay, I really love this article where they speculate that Katie Holmes’ use of a disposable cell phone may have been instrumental in keeping the divorce demand a secret from Tom Cruise – and therefore maintaining the advantage of surprise.

Because yes, it’s true: if you tell someone you will call them at 3:15 pm, they will pick up even though they don’t know the number (and I rarely pick up unknown numbers).  I love this because it’s about security in the sense that it’s keeping OUR secrets safe from THEM (whoever THEY are).  And that is the whole point of security, isn’t it?  We decide what information we want to keep private, and sometimes we decide what information other people should NOT keep private (for example, the fact they have other spouses or belong to a freaky cult).  And if we have very good security we can enforce those boundaries.  This is the same reason we should sometimes buy those disposable credit cards at the local drug or grocery store with $100 of credit on them for teens in the household who are making their own purchasing decisions.  If they need a credit card to to “make it happen”, and you don’t want to be charged again every month…think about it.  Sometimes the “this is a subscription” details are in such fine print on the website that it’s not even fair to expect a kid to notice.

Best,
