Today is a really exciting day. Today, [livejournal.com profile] katieupsidedown and I get (foster) kitties! But that doesn't happen until Katie brings them home tonight.

Until then, I get to go to work.

Instead of working, I finally figured out a thing I've seen circulating, which is "Who Google Things You Are", which I kept hearing about, but never with any sort of explanation or link. Finally, I know all about it!

And here's the maybe-cool thing: Google? Doesn't think I'm anyone. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say it doesn't know anything about me. My interests? Blank. Demographics? None.

\o/? I mean, it probably knows that all 20 of my gmail addresses are a single person. And it probably, in some deep dark server somewhere knows something about who I am and what I'm interested in. But publicly? Nada.

So anyway. Thanks, Ghostery! And probably also thanks to Adblock Plus. They individually and combined do break my internet sometimes, but now seem more than worth it.

ETA: I use Ghostery on Firefox all the time, but don't have it on my ipod (obviously) where I am a 25-34 yr old Male with an intrest in Games - Puzzles & Brainteasers.

In Chrome, I have the same demographics, but with an interest in:

Computers & Electronics - Computer Security
Computers & Electronics - Software - Internet Software - Internet Clients & Browsers
Internet & Telecom - Web Apps & Online Tools
Online Communities - File Sharing & Hosting
Sports - Individual Sports - Running & Walking

ok then.
