Hello. My Name Is...
Introduce yourself, and tell us one of three things about you (or all):
1. Your most twisted hobby.
2. The strangest night of your life.

'Canvas Fingerprinting' means wiping your cookies and blocking ads is no longer enough.
[It] works by instructing the visitor’s Web browser to draw a hidden image. Because each computer draws the image slightly differently, the images can be used to assign each user’s device a number that uniquely identifies it.
But fingerprints are unusually hard to block: They can’t be prevented by using standard Web browser privacy settings or using anti-tracking tools such as AdBlock Plus.
The researchers found canvas fingerprinting computer code, primarily written by a company called AddThis, on 5 percent of the top 100,000 websites.

Today's shout out goes to (http://twitter.com/martinsherv), who runs a company called Plus Your Business (http://www.plusyourbusiness.com/). Martin is a Google Plus expert (and a great guy!) who has helped Jay and many other businesses boost their strategies on G+.
