"I've been blogging for a couple of years now, but have ended up abandoning -- then deleting -- every blog I've ever started."In fact, I've neglected to delete Canadian Privacy Roundup — a "blog" which I've been alternately maintaining and ignoring since February 2008 — since sometime early last year. I was only reminded of this oversight earlier this morning when I logged into my blog account, noticed that CPR hadn't been deleted, and I decided to update it instead.
If it provides any justification for my omission, I don't really think of CPR as a blog. For one thing, it's basically a news aggregator that I maintain primarily for personal reference. And for another, it has no readers, followers, or subscribers that I'm aware of. I think it received a comment once, but don't hold me to that.
Anyway, I realize that I completely missed the whole "Wordle" trend, but seeing as this segment is for our mutual amusement (note: not a guarantee), and neither CPR nor Wordle has been deleted yet, I elected to wordle the entire CPR website. Wordle chewed, thought, then spat this at me:
A few initial (and highly unscientific) observations:
- The site seems to have an unnatural fixation on privacy, and with Jennifer Stoddart in particular. Funny that no netstalking cease-and-desist warnings have appeared in my inbox. Might be an email connectivity problem related to the overall lack of feedback of any kind, from any user — ever. (Except that one comment which might have been left... but upon further reflection might just have been wishful thinking on my part.)
- Toronto doesn't appear nearly as prominently as it wishes it did.
- David Loukidelis is taller than Ann Cavoukian, just like in person.
- Most privacy-related issues happen on Tuesday.
- Google, which is the most frequently used label on CPR (even more than Jennifer Stoddart), does not appear at all. Spooky, I know.
