A letter to all my Gmail-using friends...
I have recently become aware of a problem that has been largely ignored until now, that I'd like to ask you to consider when you use Gmail.
When we use our computers, we should have control over what they are doing and to whom they are talking. We don't want our computers reporting our location or sending our keystrokes to some advertising company, without our permission.
Because I use a free software operating system -- GNU/Linux -- I thought that the software on my computer was under my control. But I haven't given enough consideration to programs running inside my web browser.
