@sophia @aral @jalcine here’s a wild idea: opted out by default until we opt in, instead of the inverse. i don’t sign my life away every time i walk through a shopping mall. why should the internet be so different


@alana @sophia @aral @jalcine
"opt out by default" is they way the GDPR intends it but what we're getting now is companies trying to implement that in the most passive-aggressive way they can. I hope that sufficiently many people avoid the worst of those sites that they stop with that idiocy. I'm afraid I overestimate the amount of anger the average user can muster for these things.
