I’ve been on a blogging hiatus – mostly because the news always seems to be much the same. Don’t worry, though, it’s getting interesting again and I have things to say, so watch this space for some proper blogging soon. In the meantime:
Please, even if you don’t actually sell ads, stop colluding with the ad slingers. I’m talking about ReCaptcha, people. If you use it, you’re selling my time to Google to help them with their parent company’s self-driving cars programme. I don’t mind self-driving cars as such, even though I suspect it’s a bit like fusion and will never quite be ready. I do mind helping personal data abusers make even more money.
And in any case, bots are your problem, not mine. Never mind making me do Alphabet’s job for them, don’t make me do yours either.
Grumble ends. The Bigger Picture will be back…
