Happy Data Privacy Day!

In honor of Data Privacy Day, here's the world's
simplest Firefox add-on, which just turns on
Tracking Protection (ordinarily buried somewhere in
about:config) and sets third-party cookie policy to
a sane value.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pq/

So far it has one review -- five stars. It doesn't
do much, or for very many people, but what it does
do it does with five-star quality.

I want to make a system that gives a house privacy but still allows for
email, security alarm systems, and remote survailence from the owner.

When: Monday, February 22, 2016 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (PST)

(No, I don't think that we can make user tracking
impossible. What is doable with what we have now is
to increase the rate at which tracking protection
improves and push the expected rate of return on
creepy down. Moving risk-averse marketing and VC
money away from user-tracking projects is a win.)
