Description A hyperlink is a conscious choice to move from one website to the next. The web was not meant to collect stuff from all sorts of places and be an ideal surveillance platform in the process. Can we make third party HTML-include blockers so pervasive that the business model of cartographing humanity no longer works, or should we consider legal action: forbidding third party includes by law so that businesses understand they have to monetize more reasonably than by abusing once well-intended HTML features. That is the approach our legislation initiative for a constitutional Internet is currently taking, but maybe you have better ideas.
