An Open Letter to Everybody
Dear Everybody with whom I've ever communicated by email on the Internet. I am an asshole. Though you probably received an email purportedly from me exhorting you to check out my profile on LinkedIn, I did not send it. When I have received similar letters in the past, I've deleted them, and scoffed at the sender.
Please do NOT check out my profile on LinkedIn. I don't want you to see it. In fact, by the time you read this it will probably be gone.
Phones in pockets can do all sorts of funny things. I've pocket dialed people before. Everybody has. But I've never pocket emailed thousands of people before. That could only happen with an app written by a company with a complete lack of responsibility when it comes to personal data.
