The internet is scary…

I am not ashamed to admit that I google my own name … “Jeff Atherstone” … “Jeffrey Atherstone” … “Jeff and Christine Atherstone”… I’m curious… or battling insomnia…

Will my old employers / partners ever take me off their websites?

Are my “good” race results still posted for my 5K / 10K / Half-Marathons and Marathons?

Has anyone mentioned me on their website or blog?

Was it something I wanted written about me?

People can trash whoever they want on the internet… and I want to see if people are being nice…

But last night I saw something that horrified me… people can buy my info…

There were packages ranging in price from $1.95 - $59.95…

I don’t have anything to hide… for those who read this blog often sometimes I share more than you’d like… but I don’t like the idea that just anyone can purchase my info without my permission… although if I ever read the small print I’ve probably signed my life over a hundred times over without knowing it…

I understand that Chloe can access this info at CTU without paying anything… but at least I have the confidence that she and Jack will use the info to save the world from terrorists… but what if some weirdo just wants to post my life on their blog…

Well… if your weird and curious… here is the offer…
