I am not convinced that it is ethical to track visitors to this site. While my readers (who are likely more "tech-savvy" than average) may understand the extent of data collection on the modern web well enough to make an informed decision, the average user does not. I expect the average user will always perceive blog articles like these (or other similar kinds of static content) in much the same way that they perceive a book or newspaper---without any expectation that the author is watching from behind one-way glass.
Therefore, I will never track you in any way. This means that I am relying on you to get in touch if you have feedback on what you see and read here. I can't A/B test or track engagement, so we must actually have a conversation for me to find out what you think. Some might see this as a disadvantage, and in a sense, it is. However, it feels like a way to inject a bit of humanity back into a very strange and inhuman modern internet. Nothing will be done without your express consent.
I reserve the right to advertise on this site if I so choose, but if I do, I will only do so in a way that does not track you.
