  • can't but help post a comment considering my current position ....

    I am a multi-window/directional web surfer, I googled a friend I have recently been reacquainted with through facebook, and who her self has become high profile. I found a keynote speech she made regarding removing the copyright on digital media. while listening to the talk, I was reminded of Anthony’s interests and simultaneously googled myself for interest to see if some past embarrassing postings still pop up, they didn't, I flicked back to this blog and found this posting on ungoogling yourself. I am now confused about all the windows I have open and what my intentions are, but happy to re-discover the hope archives ...

    I just like synchronicities :-)
