Colbert on AOL Debacle (Video)

August 22, 2006

 Original post here.
Steven Colbert discusses the recent AOL search logs leak, giving sound advice on protectig your online identity. Like, “For every real search, do a fake search!”There was actually one piece that got me thinking… “disguise your typewriting by typing with your non-dominant hand.” It’s obviously meant as joke, but I once heard that certain typing speed patterns show individual characteristics… and a little JavaScript could record when each letter of a search query was entered, to finally send along that data with the submit button.
