What, you thought this would be a post whining about government incompetence? Complaining about taxes? Pheh. How about guiding you to some nifty government services? Sound good? Let’s go.
In a world of click, click, click, On Guard Online (a service from several government agencies) asks us to stop, think, click. A tall order, I know. Sporting great design, fun games for the young’uns, all sorts of fabulous tips for avoiding scams, and skeptical thinking toward advertising; On Guard Online is chock full of useful information that will definitely help you avoid being taken advantage of by unscrupulous characters. I especially liked the section on protecting yourself when you use WiFi hotspots. I think the site is worth spending some time on, and also worth sharing with your friends and family.
