This is cross-posted from solid/information#76.
I’d like to see the outcome documented in the GitHub issue, but we can have the discussion about it here.
This is something which came to my mind after reading solid/node-solid-server#1153
Please point me to the correct place if I’m wrong here (would like to discuss „best practice”).
Now to the meat:
From what I get, Solid is about redecentralisation. That it, giving power back to the users.
As such, I am wondering, whether web analytics should be used.
I mean, to a certain degree it is about recording user behaviour, so the user should have a say in it.
Here in Europe we had the cookie directive and now GDPR. (Let me know if you need links).
So in theory the user should give informed consent before a web author is allowed to track. In praxis that happened rarely in that fashion.
So how would you design that with solid?
