So I just looked at my Google Dashboard and discovered all of the data that Google keeps track of about me and how I use all their services.  It’s a little bit creepy, a little bit scary, and a little bit heartening all at the same time.  Because while yes, Google knows me better than my own mother; they have this dashboard setup in such as way that I can see, edit, and correct everything that they know about me.  Kudos to Google for leading the charge to more transparency.  Go ahead, check yours out, I bet you’ll be surprised by how much you find: https://www.google.com/dashboard/b/0/
