One of the things i want to find out is how DDG makes its money.
But what I found interesting is the list of other providers they give their money to that are all stiving to produce a corner of the internet where average people can go without having profiles created.
It was a long list, and i would like to here more about this effort, and exactly what they are doing.
This is just not some people that decided to set up a simple track free search engine.
If they are what they seem to be, they are part of a movement to bring some common decency and privacy to the internet.
I'm just getting started, but it seems as if you use their browser, you can put a code in front of the website address of Amazon, for instance, and Amazon
would not be able to compile info on you. Now realize this was what I was getting from a very quick read, and I have a lot to go through.
That is why I asked for people who are knowledgeable in this stuff.
DDG said they have 53 employees. I have no idea what all these are sites do that they contribute to, or what whole is made up by the sum of these parts.
It has peaked my interest, and I will be trying to figure it out, and to see if they are for real.
Apparently there are foundations companies, and entrepreneurs who appear, on the surface at least, to have a noble cause.
I would be willing to pay a yearly fee for an internet that these IT guys are putting together that protects the end user. I remember reading
that their software "forces" these websites to allow usage even when data mining is blocked. Pretty heady stuff.
I just hope it is not pipe dreams. If it is not I think it is worth supporting.
I know I am being optimistic, but I was unaware anything like this was going on in the private sector.
I remember asking on these pages why someone with bucks is not providing competition to the data abusers.
Apparently, there are many entities involved, but they seem to be a bit lacking for cash, and it also seems like they started doing it for free.
I know so little about these groups...could be Russians...
