Thanks for posting this! What an amazing guy, sadly never heard of him.

Loved this quote:
So many aspects of life depend on fossil fuels, except for music and love and education and happiness. These things, which hardly use fossil fuels, are what we must focus on.”

Yes Yes Yes to all 4 of those!!! - can all be practiced together too  ;)

This guy has a track record of good ideas/predictions and his impression is that we REALLY are doomed!

Very useful, thanks. It's tracking my use on my droid phone, tho very little detail. I'll see what I can to to reduce the amout it tracks. Probably this is the stuff they sell on to other parties so that we can be marketed products that google ( FB) think we want to buy.

In the meantime, if you need a small dose of anxiety, you can visit:

https://myactivity.google.com

How much detail is there depends on your settings, whether you stayed logged in to Google, how much you use Google Maps or Google Drive, etc. I'm always logged in to Drive and use maps quite often, so maybe there's a lot of data for my particular account. I'm curious, actually, if others find a complete record of their web activity and where they been when Google Maps was active.

Google repeatedly assures you that only you can see this data. And to be honest, I've found this site useful and even fascinating on a few occasions to trackdown a website I couldn't relocate or to revisit my steps on a trip I took in the past.

Still, it's disconcerting that this record exists. I have little idea how they use it or why they keep, other than taking it as a given that it's NOT for my benefit. I can't quite fathom how they can STORE this much data on the hundreds of millions (?) of Google accounts that exist.
