The 2o7 cookie.

I started blocking cookies, just for fun, and was amazed how many sites try to give me a cookie!

This article was interesting, but not as interesting as one of the comments from the author:

Plus, if you think the ads are selling products, you’re sadly mistaken. The ads are selling you to the companies that make the products. You are the product. I find that offensive.

He did go on a bit of a rant however, about his electricity bill, which kind of ruined it.  But I like the idea of realising that your anonymity is long-gone, and your browsing habits are a product, and someone if profiting from them.

Maybe someone in the ad industry would like to comment?
