Consumer Watchdog’s Privacy Policy Campaign brought their “Google Track Team” of mimes to “spy” on investors as they arrived for Google’s annual shareholder’s meeting. The mimes serve as an in-your-face and farcical illustration of what Google’s myriad and inescapable technologies do to keep tabs on every move individuals make online.

From my report on June 25th Open Source Back Doors. Facebook; Google and more…JUST click image to see what I uncovered:

Browser support for Ghostery, I highly recommend it . Ghostery™ sees the invisible web – tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons. Ghostery tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.

Will block:

Google +1, Google Adsense, Google AdWords Conversion, Google Affiliate Network, Google AJAX Search API, Google Analytics, Google Custom Search Engine, Google FriendConnect, Google Website Optimizer, Google Widgets and so much more

See September 18, 2011 Who’s tracking you? The Consumer Watchdog advocacy group says it’s Google.:

To spotlight concerns over Google’s Internet tracking, mimes working for an advocacy group will follow government workers around Wednesday, when Google chairman Eric Schmidt testifies before Congress.

Political theater will follow Google’s Schmidt to D.C.

Google’s information monopoly extends from 70% of the search market to 95% of the mobile search market. But Google refuses respect our “Do Not Track” wishes. This 3rd installment of the animated “Don’t Be Evil” series uses the Google’s CEOs own words to satirize the company’s mobile tracking practices and make the case for a “Do Not Track” law.
