Nice! There is a specification being worked on "[...]that conveys a person's request to websites and services to not sell or share their personal information with third parties".

Their landing page can be found here:

@puresick not to diminish this effort, but we already hat the DNT header before that and nobody gave a shit about it. I don't think this problem can be solved by technology alone :-(


@claudius @puresick More than that: DNT was successfully used for about a decade by these very same companies (with the complicity of Mozilla) to stave of regulation in the name of “self regulation.”

@claudius @puresick Ah, and I just had a look. See some familiar faces in there. And a couple whose business model relies on people farming. Interesting, no? :)
