I used to log out of Facebook once I finished with the site because I realized they could track me with all the “Like” buttons on plenty of pages not on Facebook.
But then I realized that was stupid,
they can track me anyway through existing cookies,
and even if I were to delete all Facebook cookies after logging out they could still track me via IP address
(not that they do—in fact,
I don't know if they do or not,
but they could!).
I still log out though.
Cargo cultish I know,
but it makes me feel better,
even when intellectually,
I know it doesn't do a thing.
Which is why I found this ad so disturbing.
Imagine that last line reading “we just did … and no,
I don't mean for likes.”

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
