I added a scrolly-Twitter-thing because I thought it was neat-o. I’ve always liked unobtrusive scrolly bits (tickers); it’s probably got something to do with watching too many news channels and daytime infomercial television, so here we are. At least there’s some activity on the screen now. Kinda.
But wait there’s-
Can you tell what it is? Can you tell where it’s gone?!
An Internet (maybe) to the first person to comm-… err, actually, no, there aren’t any Internets for this (not even maybe). That’d be ridiculous. Total, flagrant disregard for manufactured scarcity. Can’t have it (actually still maybe).
So, for those who care about such things, I have enabled “privacy-enhanced mode” on every currently-embedded YouTube video on r4mzy.co.za. I’ll endeavour to do this on future posts too. This doesn’t affect Vimeo or other video-streaming sites though, and I haven’t looked into whether they even have the option. Why’d I do it? Because for reasons I haven’t fully defined, I don’t think external sites should get to know things about my visitors without my visitors having explicitly opted to engage with the external content. But one shouldn’t think of this change as anything more than a gesture in a particular direction – I’m lazy and won’t be arsed to make significant changes to more things. It just so happens that this particular change was pretty easy to make.
