Architecture Weekly #62 - 14th February 2022
Welcome to the new week!
Here comes my love letter! 💘 It seems that the EU, has much less positive feelings around cookies, tracking and other invigilations we’re getting in social media and site providers. Austria already claimed that Google Analytics cloud transfers are illegal. Now that’s expanding. Facebook is claiming, that they may drop Europe if the legal will be expanding. This is slowly looking like a war preparation. I think that in the end there will be a compromise because all parties are interested in money, but currently, it’s unclear how that ends. If we add that companies are also fighting with each other, e.g. Safari blocking by default site tracking. It’s clear for me that’s not because of the users, but to target Google Analytics. They’ll be still tracking what you do via browser/iPhone mechanisms, just not allowing you to do that to others. Read more:

Leslie Lamport is one of my heroes. He did so much work to explain distributed systems, fault-tolerance, etc. that’s hard to put into a single sentence. I found recently that he shared materials on his modelling framework for threat analysis. Don’t let the page look’n’feel mistake you,
