Worth the time to read it, especially if privacy concerns you.
Good morning! Today's talk is being filmed, recorded and transcribed, and everything I say today will leave an indelible trace online. In other words, it's just a normal day on the Internet. For people like me, who go around giving talks about the dystopian future, it's been an incredible year.

If you are receiving calls from "IRS investigators", as we often do, you need to read this story.
As an Ivy League-educated journalist who has reported on scams and their victims, I certainly never thought I’d fall for one myself. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

This infographic, showing the genetic makeup of different dog breeds, is fascinating. As a past Borzoi-owner, I would not have guessed they were genetically related to herding breeds...
