“Terms of Service; Didn't Read” (short: ToS;DR) is a young project started in June 2012 to help fix the “biggest lie on the web”: almost no one really reads the terms of service we agree to all the time.

GDPR Hall of Shame
Hello! I'm a European citizen who's both bemused and bewildered by the way that GDPR has rolled out in Europe. I'm a big fan of what GDPR does for our rights, but the panic and rush to implement it is leading to some unfortunate, unfair experiences for the consumer.

This is an attempt to see the fun side of the legislation, and provide a reference place for how to implement GDPR better (or, more precisely, what not to do). We've had more than two years notice that this was coming, and the mad rush to get things across the line is resulting in some weirdness, things that don't actually comply and so on.

I too am a product person, who has had to built GDPR-compliant features, so I know the pain. We're all in this together, and in theory, we should come out the other side building more mindfully data-friendly products from day one in the future.

Snapchat’s decline and the secret joy of internet ghost towns - The Verge
The internet is full of consequences now because real life is full of consequences. The membrane between online and real life has long since dissolved. As Snapchat fades into irrelevance, it has less and less to do with our real lives, the ones that count and matter, the ones where we have to be accountable for each action and each sentence. These almost-gone spaces can feel like a party about how you’re leaving town in the morning, replete with a last-night-on-earth sort of permissiveness.

These cameras belong to our agency. They weren’t requested by nor are they monitored by the Seattle Police Department.

The City’s surveillance ordinance requires city departments to obtain permission to install cameras, but that doesn’t apply to federal agencies.

ex-cop Tim Burgess to institute a $25 tax on gun sales and a 5 cent tax on each round of ammunition. The city estimates the taxes would raise up to $500,000 per year. Burgess said taxpayers paid more than $12 million in 2014 to offset unpaid medical bills for gunshot victims at Harborview. The revenue from the tax would fund a two-year gun violence prevention program.

UPDATE: The City Council unanimously passed the gun and ammunition tax Monday, as well as a measure that would require mandatory reporting of lost or stolen firearms to SPD. Burgess, a strong frontrunner in the Position 8 City Council race, thanked his colleagues in a statement:
