Google is pretty smart, but thankfully imperfect

If you have a Google account, you can check out who the tech giant thinks you are by clicking here. Even though the corporation collects and stores crazy amounts of data on its users, its algorithm remains imperfect. Pretty much everyone I know who has clicked on that link has found that Google thinks they are men above the age of 65. Among that group, zero of us are men over the age of 65. 

But other than that, it's pretty accurate. I do indeed follow computer, world and social advocacy news. And I live in Boston. Also: clothes. I admit it. Thanks a lot, Google.
