Google’s cyberstalking’s time has come

Yes, it is creepy that Google knows where you are, all the damn time. But measured on a country level, it changes from creepy to useful. Its Covid-19 Mobility Reports for each country is a fascinating look at how effective each country’s various lockdown, social distancing or laissez faire approaches have been. My only complaint is that it’s only available as PDFs, one per country, which makes comparison just about impossible. Open data it is not.
