This has been annoying me way too much lately. Saying "we value your privacy" while implicitly saying ".. but not enough to add opt-out from all button".

I'm glad Google News has an option to filter out all articles from the site in the future.

New study: The advertising industry is systematically breaking the law : Forbrukerrådet

The online advertising industry is behind comprehensive illegal collection and indiscriminate use of personal data, research from the Norwegian Consumer Council shows.
Based on the findings, more than 20 consumer and civil society organisations in Europe and from different parts of the world are urging their authorities to investigate the practices of the online advertising industry.

The report uncovers how every time we use apps, hundreds of shadowy entities are receiving personal data about our interests, habits, and behaviour. This information is used to profile consumers, which can be used for targeted advertising, but may also lead to discrimination, manipulation and exploitation.

L'argent liquide pour sauver nos libertés


Comme l'a brillamment démontré Rick Falkvinge dans ses excellents articles «Analog Equivalent Right¹», nous renonçons irraisonnablement à nos libertés en échange de la facilitation que nous apportent les usages numériques.

Dans l'article intitulé «Analog Equivalent Rights (11/21) : Our parents used anonymous cash²», il nous alerte sur la disparition des transactions numéraires ; plus d'argent liquide, cela signifie que toutes nos dépenses pourront être tracées, enregistrées, répertoriées.




Cette perspective qu'il nous décrit prend toute sa réalité et deviendra tangible dans un avenir proche. Le rapport CAP22³, dans sa proposition n°16, annonce,... Show more...

India's About to Hand People Data Americans Can Only Dream of - Bloomberg

Indian users will have new, immediate access to their own financial information, and they’ll control who sees what and when. It’s a marked contrast with what happens in the U.S., where three big credit reporting agencies collect -- and resell -- a limited array of consumers’ financial data directly from the banks, with only cursory consent.

Linky venderà i tuoi dati.

Linky vendra les données de votre vie.


I Big Data (letteralmente "big data") non sono una fantasia per gli scrittori di fantascienza. Sebbene discreta, è una rivoluzione che ha già scosso l'economia mondiale, come spiegato da Solange Ghernaouti, esperto internazionale di sicurezza informatica e membro dell'Accademia svizzera delle scienze tecniche. "Il nuovo digitale El Dorado è collegato alla vasta raccolta di informazioni. Tutti i modelli economici si basano sul data mining. Non siamo più in un'economia dei servizi, ma in un'economia dei dati. L'obiettivo è quello di avere il maggior numero possibile e sfruttarli. "Più abbiamo, più siamo potenti, più facciamo soldi assicurando un futuro luminoso: Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple insieme rappresentano l'80% dei dati personali del mondo.
