@mangeurdenuage Executing code in a web browser *without explicit permission from the user* is a mistake. As we've seen with mobile, normalizing downloading native apps for everything is also a mistake. In practice, it helps the biggest platforms starve the web of users by keeping them away from the web browser.
@laura The thing I noticed most prominently about companies' reactions to GDPR was that once "get explicit consent for cookies" became mandatory, it became a lot harder to use the web while flat-out rejecting cookies. Because you have to accept cookies to get the cookie that says that you've consented to cookies, and you MUST consent to cookies before proceeding.
If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things
I hear tech folks saying that RSS is dead, and people on social media saying that blogs are dead.
The problem with this is twofold:
- RSS is doing just fine, and not even remotely dead
- Blogs are doing just fine, and are not even remotely dead, either
There's this strange sort of defeatism around. "Well, we lost, so what can you do". Um, not undermine things that still work and are actively being used? Support them as well?

Old doesnt mean obsolete, blog post by Chris Ferdinandi --
https://gomakethings.com/old-doesnt-mean-obsolete/ -- It's common to hear sarcastic phrases like "welcome back 1995", "I didn't know we were in 1995 again" and similar which are not only disrespectful but also morbid. They block structured and logic argumentation but still some will fall for it for emotional causes, extending the fallacy that old technology is obsolete and modern technology is better (which is sometimes true and sometimes untrue).
There is also this soon to be released book:
The Ethical Design Handbook
"A practical handbook on ethical design for digital products. With practical techniques to influence a positive change in your company. Help your business grow sustainably — without dark patterns — and comply with #GDPR and #CCPA."
"To respect visitors’ #privacy, #EDRi’s new guide for ethical website development recommends to simply not include any third party resources and services on a site. Host that image, font, or traffic counter yourself; or at least pay the hosting provider for its service with your money, not with other people’s personal data."
Están cordialmente invitados a mi primera exposición individual de fotografía. Su nombre es “Ruinas de Baja California” y consiste de 16 fotografías que tomé principalmente en la carretera a la Rumorosa y en el poblado mismo. La inauguración se hará el domingo 23 de febrero de este año, a las 7 p. m., en el salón Casino del Centro Cultural Riviera en Ensenada. La entrada es libre y me daría mucho gusto verlos por ahí.
