A few days ago, I was actively avoiding my life plans (and scrolling through WordPress) when I stumbled upon a GIF from Vincze Istvan showing where Google had plotted his locations over the last few years.
And my brain exploded. I mean, I knew in the back of my mind that anytime I checked my email or looked for directions or asked Lyft for a ride, my information at that particular time and place was probably being stored somewhere. That storage place had always felt far too abstract to make me paranoid.
Until I saw it projected in a GIF in a supremely tangible way.
