I discovered this week that I never turned off my Google activity tracking. That's awesome for remembering what to put in this post but really bad for data privacy overall. Time to consider my options. If you want to learn more about your Google activity tracking, head over to your personal page.
My goal for this series of posts is to share all of the interesting things we research in everyday life. The caveat is that I get to decided what's on the list. I do not share what I research on behalf of our students and faculty, I do not share searches that overlap with the privacy others in my life, I also do not share things that I do not wish to share. Again, I get to make that decision. Google, on the other hand, just tracks everything. They then use that for marketing.
