Watchlist Countdown, Day 6: “Scroogled” by Cory Doctorow

     “Now you're a person of interest, Greg. You're Googlestalked. Now you live your life with someone constantly looking over your shoulder.”

       from “Scroogled” by Cory Doctorow

Friends, I don't want you to freak out, but...They.  Are.  Watching.

Cory Doctorow's contribution to the Watchlist anthology, “Scroogled,” is a sharp needle pricking our skin, reminding us that it's Google's world; we just live in it. Resistance is futile.

Have a nice day.
