Re: Does anyone use WayBack Machine?

Would that be considered PII? After all if the article only states; "...this piece of tat, coded by John Smith..." then there would likely be many John Smiths alive at the time of writing...

Re: Ivory tower IT

This reminds me of a time, recently, when my partner showed me some video or photographs of an event held in the assembly hall of the School in which she works. I asked what the white rectangles were on every single piece of child's artwork on the walls of the room.

Her answer blew my mind; "It's the name and class of the child-artist, we have to cover them for GDPR and child-protection reasons..."

...wtf?
