I'll pose my question first, and then give some back story. I'm trying
to get a non-profit interested in substituting Free for proprietary
a software or web developer.
or write a file (other than a cookie) without permission, but could
transmit information to any internet location. Correct?
libraries to fulfill a specific feature? Or is this simply too
broad a question to be useful?
Here's the back story. I heard about the organization Justdiggit and
went to their web site to donate: https://justdiggit.org. Their
privacy/cookie notice is surprisingly forward, and essentially screams
to me "we will sell your data". Well, points for honesty. I
declined. I was using the "Abrowser" Firefox derivative on Trisquel
and the site shows almost no content with that browser. I visited the
site with stock Firefox, looked up contact information, and sent an
e-mail saying I would love to donate but I didn't want to be tracked.
Miraculously (to my mind), one of their team sent a reply e-mail saying
they understood my desire not to be tracked and would like to work with
me. I imagine that means "help me get my browser to work", not
necessarily to re-engineer their web site. I responded that it was in
be prepared to speak of many horrible things that proprietary
developers could go to find Free tools.
This is all terribly unlikely to have any immediate impact, but it's a
vehicle to alert some people about these issues. Thanks in advance!
