Apparently many site owners have a burning desire to know how many visitors they have, where those visitors live, where they have been browsing, what OS and software they run, etc. All this and much more about you is available to me! But I'm not inclined to peek under your virtual covers. Not only does it feel wrong, it IS wrong. And I respect you for visiting - I want you to feel dignified while you're here. Unlike much of the rest of the world, Americans, ironically, have surrendered our privacy rights with nary a wimper. For twenty years, I've been telling people that America is heading into dangerous waters with our lack of technology regulation. If you think the Trump "presidency" is shockingly frightening, just imagine what a similar lack of thought / regard will bring us with technology - in the hands of the rich, powerful Trumpian ilk. I like to connect with people, I like to read your comments. But I don’t care how many of you visit, nor what other sites you have been to, and I surely do not want to be a part of facilitating unconstitutional surveillance of you by Squarespace or by whomever may legally or illegally access your private, personal and very valuable data. If you are running Firefox with Disconnect or Ghostery plugins, you may notice one or two typekit trackers or tag managers, but all in all you are probably having less surveillance done on you here than pretty much anywhere. It's the least, and best, I could do.
Please feel free to comment. I'd like to hear your thoughts on "Privacy in America."
