I hate–I mean–I love to say “I told you so!” Online privacy and discretion: it’s not just for the teenagers and young adults whom we love to lecture about this. And you don’t even have to be in confessional mode to give up a lot of intel to teh fB, as it turns out!
Yes, I know: I have a blog, so what the heck am I doing standing up for privacy and discretion on the world wide non-peer reviewed intertubes? Well, those of you who know me in real life understand that this blog represents only a highly selective part of my personal life, and is mostly about my professional identity. Those of you who don’t know me in RL–well, let’s just say you’re not missing much, but you’re missing enough for me not to wonder if I’ve overshared here. And that’s the way it’s got to be for me, anyway.
Dear readers, you can be assured that this blog will remain non-monetized and completely commercial and advertising free. I know you’re probably surprised that I’m not tempted to cash in big on “History and Sexual Politics, 1492-present,” but no matter how insanely lucrative it might be, I only work for you, and I will never sell or share your e-mail or IP addresses. (“Message: I care.”)
I keep getting offers to guest blog here and co-blog there, but I like minding my own ranch and prefer mucking out my own stalls. (That way, I know who’s responsible for the horse$hit!)
