Cool Technology of the Week
We've all used Google products - Search, Gmail, Blogger, You Tube, Docs, and Analytics. Along the way, we've provided information about ourselves - our preferences, our searches, and our customizations.
Google has created a dashboard that serves as a "disclosure log" of everything they know about each user.
To access it, go to Google Dashboard
It's fascinating to see the accumulated data. Google does have strong policies to provide the Google Personal Health Record (Google Health). Any information related to that product is not mined, resold, distributed or used for advertising in any way.
With the Dashboard, I can better understand the data Google gathers about me and be a better informed user.
A dashboard that consolidates all information about my use of Google products - that's cool.
