Thread: They are watching us

    Exclamation They are watching us

    After watching a TED talk on how many entities track us as we voyage through the internet, I downloaded an add on for my Firefox browser called Collusion. After a short trip to several sites I commonly visit, I racked up over three dozen sites that were tracking me. If you'd like to see the talk it's available at http://www.ted.com/talks/gary_kovacs..._trackers.html

    Yep. Bottom line is if you don't want people knowing what you do, don't do it on the web and if you do, do it from starbucks using chrome incognito mode.
