Link Your Accounts

Yet another nuisance in todays net is, that all the huge services try to have their users create one single account, that would be valid everywhere. Though promoted as an advantage/simplification (duh), people should ask themselves, if they really want one single account for everything. Also, once different accounts are established in a browser, it’s hardly a bigger effort over the single one. It just makes it easier for data-miners, to have a complete overview over specific users. “We” shouldn’t make it that easy for “them” – I’m not even going into other reasons, why it’s rarely positive to have every online activity bundled for third parties. Vivid Internet users leave enough data that can be summarized as it is (for one reason or another) and be it only because it’s already unavoidable.
