Several friends on facebook alerted me to the site spokeo.com. It's essentially a phonebook that includes a lot of personal data compiled from around the internet. I'm not sure if I should be concerned about privacy or not - seems like that ship has sailed.
I reviewed my profile. True that I'm married, in my early 40s and have an unknown occupation. False that I'm a Capricorn. Capricorn? Crappy website can't get my astrological sign right and I'm supposed to worry about someone using this data to...what? Steal my identity? My identity as a Capricorn? (Is it really necessary to capitalize zodiac signs?) I love that I live in a home that is both worth $1M+ and located in a "below average" neighborhood. One of those two pieces of data is wrong, but I'm not saying which one.
This is my rock and roll love letter to you.
