GitHub Pages "blocks" Google's FLoC now by adding the opt-out header.
I don't think this is any reason to celebrate. #Google pulled two tricks here:
1. It identified all websites that are against this standard, making it easy to rank them worse.
2. Provided a technical solution to a social problem making all the tech elitist feel good by adding a header instead of protesting.
I have to admit: I am tired of fighting.
I am tired of fighting for privacy.
All the things i have to take care of to prevent people from controlling and breaking the web (not only looking at Google).
I am tired of trying to educate people about their basic right to privacy.
I am tired of hearing: "But i have nothing to hide..."
How do people keep fighting while staying sane? #privacy #tired
IDK how to express this in text, but somehow “O Elbereth Gilthoniel” and “We all live in a yellow submarine” just fit together.
Just because a developer is making a "free" product, doesn't mean they don't ALSO have the right to create income streams for it. And you have no right to take that away from them.
Plus, an awesome new "Music For Everyone" segment by the guy who wrote the Linux For Everyone theme!
I have found my ultimate calling.
