Resources

My personal collection of links to other websites and resources that I have found valuable while studying information removal techniques, and privacy matters.  I may organize these more as time goes on, but for now, I encourage you to browse this collection of gems and feel free to suggest others you may find.  As I have stated before; any knowledge I have on this topic is due to the hard work of many others out there who are gracious enough to share theirs.  Be a student of the game and develop a hunger for more knowledge.
