After every fresh snowfall in Minnesota, people make footprints that show the path or paths that they've taken. The footprints of the paperboy walking to each door with the latest news. The footprints of the mailman walking to and from each mailbox. The footprints from the front door to the car that's warming up for you.

In today's digital age, people are making digital footprints. Leaving a trail that shows the life that they've lead and where they've been. When creating these digital footprints, what kinds of things should we be thinking about? What kinds of cautions need to be considered?

Lets look at making the best possible paths for ourselves.
