Think you can hide?

SecurityDude has an interesting blog about how easy it is to get background information on people in the US. If you live in the US, it is interesting what information they can get on you.

  • Find out where you live?
  • Get satellite pictures of your home?
  • Determine the value of your home and how much you pay in property taxes?
  • Get a list of all of the places you have lived in the last 20+ years?
  • Find out your age, and the name/age of your spouse?
  • Obtain a list of your criminal convictions in every state?

Wow! No wonder there are so many paranoid people in the US. I have to say it kinda makes you happy to live in Trinidad and Tobago. So I guess it can be a good thing to be living in a backward country like this. Yes, it means I can’t find out whether that new employee is really a sick fuck, but it also means that others can’t find out whether I am a sick fuck.
