We all have that one friend, that girl who keeps texting her boyfriend, tweeting her boyfriend, screen shotting posts by her boyfriend, and generally just scaring the crap out of her boyfriend.
Now, there’s Overly Attached Computer.
Remember that time you needed to bring a resume to that interview for that internship with that company that never called you back? You probably printed it from a Columbia printer, and used a Columbia computer. Guess what? The computer saved a copy.
Remember that time your mother emailed you a copy of your passport for that fun trip/mandatory detox in Paris?
The computer saved that too.
In fact, computers at Columbia University, (with those at Carman Hall reviewed specifically), are gold mines of information that should probably be private. Bwog has found addresses, birthdays, telephone numbers, and of course pictures, in these public documents.
So the next time you print something out, such as a copy of your passport, double check the documents saved on that computer. You just might find a copy available for public use.
Because Overly Attached Computer is overly attached.
