GDPR at last!

Finally it has come, like an yearly christmas present! Or perhaps not. At enormous costs and what seems to be no real change to end users at all. 

It doesn’t matter that the fines are gigantic, if nobody understands the meaning and purpose it has no effect anyway. 

I just can’t avoid thinking that if you wanted a definitive result why not be clearer? Like the purpose is to be ambiguous in order to give lawyers more work...

Probably not intentional but still, this is what it all amounts to.

When I read the law, it seems to me that basically every single website will break the law. So is this going to be the end of internet or become just another nonsense checkbox you need to click before browsing the web?


Hello! How nice of you stopping by! ❤️

My name is Olof Thorén, I am an indie developer from Stockholm, Sweden.

I really enjoy creating stuff, and that is the reason why I am doing this. I started working full-time on building apps in 2009.

At the moment my main focus is Feeds, a glorified news and RSS-reader that keeps track of the web for you. I also build Qiozk Solo, white-label magazine apps for (mainly Swedish) publishers. I have published ~75 Solo-apps though most of them are not active today. Aggressive Development has published 15 apps under its own name and many more for other companies.

Please feel free to say hello on twitter @olof_t or email olof@aggressive.se. Don't hesitate to send me comments or feedback on anything I write.
