I'm being followed by a Jeff Bezos
You have to sing it like
Oh, I'm being followed by a Jeff Bezos,
Jeff Bezos, Jeff Bezos.
Paranoia? Nope. Just this: I added an item to my not-quite-bulging amazon.com shopping cart this morning, and now I find items I looked at during this shopping binge in the affiliates advertising on an otherwise-unrelated Web site. I don't think I've ever seen quite that precise a hit before. None of this presents any particular problem, unless Bezos goes berserk and sets up a separate Stalking Division at amazon.com, but still, it's just a little bit creepy.
Mental note: Toss cookies faster.
Update, 20 January: It's not just me.
