Re: [MH-list] Yahoo tracking users
This article was posted on on of my Yahoo decorative painting groups -The tracking of users is very important to big businesses and it leads to quite wide issues. I have been told that Internet Explorer, for example, has no way (even in its code interface) of blocking advertising - adverts getting through to your machine. When they get through, they can *do* things in the machine, one example is cookies.
If you do not mind seeing a longish video talk about such things, and being a bit frightened too, (as I was) have a look at utube:
Eben Moglen - IV Congrs Internet, dret i poltica (IV Internet Congress on Law and Politics)
This guy knows what he is talking about. If you can see it all, you will see just how close we are to actually loosing freedom of thought (not even speech.....)
