The Science and technology section has saved me many times when I begin to run dry for blogging ideas.  Yet once again the CBC rides to the rescue.

“The website,, was created in just four hours and is based on publicly posted Twitter messages, according to its founders. The site pulls in Twitter feeds that feature FourSquare, an online game where people mention their current location.

Boy Van Amstel, one of the site’s Dutch developers, said he and two friends set up PleaseRobMe to illustrate just how foolish some people are with the amount of personal information they share online.”

I felt kinda silly when I asked my partner to remove my picture off of a photo sharing site because of my concerns about internet privacy.  I value my privacy a great deal and being searchable just seemed like a bad idea to me.  But as the article says, with a program hacked together in 4 hours, people can find out if you are home or not, if you put too much personal information on the web (in this case via twitter).

I just googled my name and remain, at least to the casual search, anonymous.  Thank heavens.

I do not think I am being unreasonable in my question for anonymity when it comes to the internet.  My quotidian nature and lack of desire to be in the public eye contribute to my unremarkable presence here on the web.

Is it just me?  Am I being unreasonable?  Tell me what you think of online privacy and how you deal with the interwebs.
