There are two semi-related questions that have been repeatedly popping up in my head for the past couple years: 1) now that we know how to do real #SecureMessaging, are we sure we want a world where wiretapping isn't possible? 2) now that we know how to privately track usage without #tracking people, are we sure we want to encourage software development based on tracking data? #privacy
Reading about how #Vivaldi browser aims to remove unique IDs when counting users makes me think about how #fdroid hasn't been tracking users from the beginning, and stopped tracking downloads years ago, and seems to only have become more popular. Makes me think that #FreeSoftware developed by community motivated by doing the right thing is a better way than a #startup or being driven by #tracking. Maybe improving the #privacy of tracking is missing the point.
