TRYING to position a website for Google's algorithms just got more complicated. They're now tracking your personal browsing/search habits and attempting to deliver more personalized search results. All of this, of course, makes more than a few people nervous. Personally I don't care who sees where I've gone. There is no information that can be used against me. However, there are places in the world where the collection of such information in and of itself potentially endangers people. Not everybody is trying to play as fair and open as Google. ~ link

YOU'RE asking whatever happened to the Holy Bible: Mosaic blog tour that was supposed to stop by here last month? They're good folk at Tyndale, but I think they just bit off more than they could chew. So it looks like it isn't going to happen. Thank you to all who submitted questions. I apologize that they will go unanswered.
