The high privacy cost of a ‘free’ website

September 27, 2020 | website | No Comments

Kara Zajac said SPART*A, a small nonprofit serving transgender military service members and veterans, helped her begin her transition while in the Navy. To give back, she volunteered to build the group’s website in her spare time after leaving the military—and kept her eye on a key value: privacy.

“I don’t track users,” Zajac said. “Not everyone in the military is wanting to be known for being trans. They might not be out yet. So any time we can protect privacy in that way, we try to do it.”

She said she only allowed three trackers on spartapride.org: cookies from Twitter and Facebook that accompany their “like” buttons on the site, and one from Disqus, a commenting platform she got through a prepackaged website theme she bought off the internet for $59 to build the site.

But when The Markup scanned spartapride.org using our new instant privacy inspector, Blacklight, we

The Truly High Cost Of “Efficiency”

September 27, 2020 | technology | No Comments

Thank you Dayna Moon, for the inspiration.

“Efficiency,” in mechanical terms, means the ratio of the useful work performed by a machine to the total energy expended to do that work. In digital marketing terms, “efficiency” should mean the ratio of business outcomes to total money spent to achieve those outcomes. Unfortunately “cost efficiency” has come to mean simply “low cost.” Media agencies have been touting “cost efficiency” as the key benefit of using programmatic ad tech to buy and place digital display media. And who doesn’t love a good deal, or low prices, as it were? 

But of course there’s a catch, as with anything that’s too good to be true. How can there be continuously more ad impressions to buy, while the CPM prices go lower and lower? As far as I’m aware, the number of humans on earth hasn’t exploded recently and the amount of time they

A hand dryer is an electric device used to dry hands and often found in washrooms. In the past there were just a few available in public washrooms, but today they are becoming common place in residential homes. When shopping you will discover brands which run automatically or with a button, using infrared sensors. High speed models though more expensive, offer a better alternative to conventional ones. Hand dryers are recommended highly because they can reduce waste and litter compared with paper towels. Therefore, they offer a better alternative because they are environmentally friendly. The environmental impact is not only felt at the point of use, but also at the point of production by reclaiming trees, gallons of water and solid a good one include:
