“I Know Where Your Cat Lives”
“I Know Where Your Cat Lives”

Who needs the NSA when your cute kitty posts do all the work for them?

A¬†Florida State University professor created a website called “I Know Where Your Cat Lives” to show the quote, “status quo of personal data usage by startups and international megacorps who are riding the wave of decreased privacy for all.”

He takes images of cats uploaded to photosharing services and got the latitude and longitude coordinates from them that many digital cameras, particularly those in smartphones, attach to each image.

A random scroll displays photos from a sample of one million of the cat pictures that are online and displays them on a map using satellite images.

He doesn’t give street addresses, however, and he’s actually scrubbed out the metadata so the photos can’t be tracked back to a specific social media account.

And honestly…we shared this story just to post another cute kitten pic! ¬†#GuiltyAsCharged
