Winter Solstice

December 22, 2007

Today it’s the winter solstice. On the northern hemisphere this is the shortest day, so now the days will start getting longer and brighter. This is truly cause for celebration.


Turning off Beacon

December 6, 2007

Facebook have finally offered a solution to one of their major privacy issues: Beacon. Users of the webside can now completely opt-out. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, apologizes and provides a link for doing so.

Now we only need Facebook to change their terms of use, so that they are no longer allowed to do whatever to whatever information they gather about the users. See this facebook group for details.

It seems like these issues will continue, especially since the alliance with Microsoft.
