"Spy pixels are evolving like malware, so HEY’s adapting" by DHH https://m.signalvnoise.com/spy-pixels-are-evolving-like-malware-so-heys-adapting/
I know Fastmail just uses a proxy for all images. Presumably if they request every image every time, it also defeats pixel tracking? Then marketers just get a 100% hit rate, which is useless.
There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.
Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.
There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science
Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
