Location Tracking: Off

Hi folks,

Reading through this piece in the New York Times was pretty scary: Twelve Million Phones, One Dataset, Zero Privacy.

This website has long had a feature that would center the map on your location so you could more easily find events close to you. I’ve never sold your location data (nor ever been asked for this or any other data–being small has its perks), but to help us all feel slightly better, I’ve turned this feature off. You’ll have to pan and zoom to see what’s happening in your neck of the woods.

In other news, I’m not as active as I once was about keeping the event list up to date, and for that I apologize. One reason is that I’m not as active in racing as I once was (young kids seem to have that effect), but I will keep working on it.

Thanks for the support,
