Without question, one of the greatest fears we face today is an invasion of our privacy, which is why, we guard our cell phones so closely. Our public and personal lives could be destroyed if it fell into the wrong hands. To be true to himself and observers, Nick Hugh Schmidt's response is to relinquish his phone for anyone to look through. Pointing out that Reality TV shows are actually scripted, and so too our lives on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, Schmidt can only maintain the actual by offering up-to-the-moment access to his phone without altering, censoring or editing his device.
