I woke up late and now have little time to write. I am sick, very sick. I've had a sinus cold for days but this morning I started coughing up blood. Everything online says that is a potentially very bad sign and to see a doctor. I won't, of course, unless it gets worse. It already seems to be getting better. I think it was only from a particularly violent coughing fit I had when I woke up. Something feels torn in my chest, torn and frayed.
Ok, I have much more to say on this next matter. But for now I encourage everybody to read this article. I have always projected a somewhat phantom-self on Facebook as well as here on this Google blog. The idea that a digital profile is being created on that other self and is potentially being sold, or given away, to possible employers and/or the government has made me reconsider my feelings about the harmlessness of those services.
More on that later, I promise.
