: 25 years of internet (Dutch)
Vandaag (zondag 17 november 2013) is het precies 25 jaar geleden dat Nederland aangesloten werd op de voorloper van het internet. Dit doet me toch even stil staan bij mijn eigen ervaringen, ik herinner me nog goed dat ik in 1995 met een 14k4 modem bij mijn ouders thuis zat, toen belde ik nog niet in op het internet, nee ik belde een BBS, en daar kon ik dan spelletjes downloaden of plaatjes of tekst berichtjes uitwisselen met andere gebruikers.

Next to that I have tweaked the style sheets for several parts of the site, changed all the URL patterns, created new urls and installed the Page Manager Redirect module to redirect from old...
: Privacy on the internet

No matter which site you go to, you'll get tracking cookies, sites that read your browsing history, targeted ads based on your search history and probably a lot more. The real question is whether this is a serious problem or not. For example, Google. Did anyone ever try to turn of the tracking in Google? It is possible, if you have a Google account, just log on to your account and find the option to disable tracking and targeted ads. I did this, you know what the result was? I suddenly got a shitload of ads for...
