Good, but shocking article from EFF about FLoC.

"Google has pledged to make sure that cohorts aren’t too tightly correlated with “sensitive categories” like race, sexuality, or medical conditions."

An internet browser should not ever even document things like race and gender!

Preventing correlation is not an acceptable argument for this kind of invasion.

Get these idiots out of my system please.


@mplammers I didn't know about Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC), but I think learning about this soon is important and worth it.

And I agree with your responses.
