I use a browser from an American search engine and advertising company, together with a operating system from an American company...I would be surprised if my extensions were the only thing spying on me!

If you're in DC and want some free beer, you should RSVP for this Heineken art project. The promoter is a friend of mine.

And yes, free beer.
