Submission + - An Overview of the Do Not Track Debate (theverge.com)

jonathanmayer writes: "The Verge is carrying an accurate and accessible overview of the Do Not Track debate. "With the fate of our beloved internet economy allegedly at stake, perhaps it's a good time to examine what Do Not Track is. How did the standard came to be, what does it do, and how does it stand to change online advertising? Is it as innocuous as privacy advocates make it sound, or does it stand to jeopardize the free, ad-supported internet we've all come to rely on?" The issues surrounding Do Not Track can be difficult to understand owing to rampant rhetoric and spin. This article unpacks the tracking technology, privacy concerns, economic questions, and political outlook. Full disclosure: I'm quoted."
