Further Steps to Shrink my Cyberfootprint

I am in the process of deleting some accounts to services that potentially do more harm than good. For example, I am and will continue to be a heavy users of my Kindle, but I deleted Goodreads just now. I read a lot but I don’t need to boast of what I read and specifically what I read is none of anyone’s business, unless of course I chat them up about it over a beer. And Amazon already sends me a sufficient number of ads for books I don’t want to read.

This account deletion process is extremely painless with some companies. With others, I suspect they want me to cut off my little finger before I delete my account, and in some cases ending an account might be impossible. But my attempts continue. Jaron Lanier for POTUS!
