This is what greeted me when I tried to log into this blog from a remote location:
Creepy. I suppose I should be reassured that Google is making sure that I am who I say I am, and that my blogging job hasn't been taken over by a spam bot, but it isn't. It's also pretty clear that Google records where I log in from, and keeps that information at least a couple of weeks.
In a world where it's hard to avoid surveillance no matter where you are or what you're doing, this is not at all reassuring. I'm sure I'm just old fashioned, but moments like this give me an overwhelming urge to "anonymize".
