Dear Reader,  
One of the reasons we like emailing you every month is that we get to share online stories that are relevant to you right now. This month, there are two things we’ve been itching to get to you. We’ve got an advice story that follows on the heels of California’s Consumer Privacy Act and gives you a place to start as you battle to keep your information to yourself. And in honor of Black History Month, we’re bringing you a collection of stories from the past 20 years to celebrate Stanford’s black alumni and faculty. Itch officially scratched. Have a great month.
