Here you can find notes about things I discover or learn but are not (yet) worth a full-length post.

Yesterday, noyb filed a formal GDPR complaint against Google because of the Tracking ID not being deletable and it being opt-out instead of opt-in. This way, users are not able to give their consent before being tracked. I’m really curious if they will succeed here.

iOS also has a “Limit Ad Tracking” checkbox hidden inside the privacy settings and I cannot remember if it is enabled by default. If not then wouldn’t such a complaint also be valid here?

Replying to Me and my Posse (…)

@basil That’s pretty much also my approach to comments. Notes for shortform comments to blog posts, full-length posts when I want to write a bit more as comment, but otherwise comment on the source medium itself (e.g. Instagram, Mastodon, Twitter).
