“Social media posts could ruin your college dreams - Merely following Alex Jones on #Twitter almost cost one teen a college admission. Another lost his scholarship over a #Facebook message about the 2016 election. Anything you post can and will be used against you, a lawyer tells RT.”

Google Glass was an interesting case because it showed us people do care about privacy, but only when they feel it's violated.

They will give endless data on themselves and others including photos, video and location but they will outrage the moment they feel privacy is actually at risk - because someone has a camera on their face instead of their hands.

Facebook is actually very clever to obtain all this data without triggering this sensation for the average person.

People know.. but they do not *feel*.

I finally updated my website to use and couldn't be happier. Check out gregoryhammond.ca and let me know if yoy find anything wrong / not right / out of place.

Feels so weird not checking birdsite (I took the app off my home screen and haven't checked it since I did that) but feels so free and nice at the same time. Why don't we all remove all social media from our phones, it won't do anything bad to us.

@kev It's funny that you are de-googling your life yet you still use google fonts on your site.
