Geotagging

Postby Ginger » August 15th, 2010, 2:57 pm

Hi, everybody,

I know I may be a bit more cautious than some about my online "tracks," but this article about geotagging is worth a read for anyone who posts photos online. I wasn't aware of how easy it was for anybody to figure out your location from information that is encoded on digital photos taken on certain devices (iPhones and others). Just thought I'd share this for anyone who wants their private info to stay private -- to the extent that that is even possible nowadays.

They're gone, I'm afraid. I love my computer, Internet, GPS, and all that . . . but privacy is becoming a quaint old concept. I don't like it . . .

You should read this book. It will blow you away when you stop and consider just how much "they" know about you.

This guy is an excellent author. He wrote "The Bone Collector", which was one of Angelina Jolie's earlier movies.

Wow, Joe -- that book sounds chilling! Maybe I shouldn't read it -- I worry enough already!
