Dear Anders,

I would like to contribute to your research, but when I try to use 
google.com it redirects automatically to google.nl - speaking of 
peronalisation ;-) I guess such localization happens default in most 
countries.
It can be circumvented, however: just type google.com/ncr (no country 
redirect) and you will stay at google.com.
May be a good idea to insert this in your call for participation?

kind regards

Marianne
