Creepy ad watch*

Why am I seeing banner ads ("ads by Google") for co-ops in the place where I was born, raised and went to school? Did I let slip a bit of autobiography here on (Google's) Blogger?  Or did Classmates.com, which I made the mistake of signing up for several years ago, sell the info?

* h/t Sullivan for his running feature of that title.


  1. More likely you search for it from time to time, maybe even to look at housing prices there?

  2. Nope...to my knowledge I've never searched real estate listings in my birthplace.
