Assignment 06: Reflection
Write a short reflection about your hack – how did you do it? What information is gained or lost? What are the implications of hacking your data in the way that you did?
This week’s activity was relatively simple, due to the nature of Chome browser that is easy to adjust tracking options. Not only that, but also it was something I’ve been intentionally doing since the beginning of website tracking to collect IP location. It derived from the idea that revisiting of websites (to recheck IP location) shouldn’t be included in Chrome history list – because it’s only part of “tracking” process, not a natural visit. Consequently, my website visits during the process of rechecking IP locations are lost forever, under my decision. However, for certain decisions, there are always room for a debate. It made me rethink about a correlation between arbitrary decisions and data cleansing.
