It is urchin - we installed the new Google Analytics tool today. I didn't realize it was modifying our cookie behaviour.

Hmm...

Let me get the privacy policy for it and I'll be right back.

I can't really guarantee that Google isn't going to use this data for anything nefarious, but I can't figure out what they would be able to do with it.

I kinda jumped on the shiny new thing without really thinking about it too much. Google just released this today and I wanted to see what it looked like.

Anyway check out http://www.google.com/analytics to see what we're working on.

//edit: Please post any questions or concerns here and I'll try to address them. Maybe this was a bad idea? I'm not convinced either way. The graphs and charts are nice, but if there are overwhelming privacy concerns I'll see what I can do.
