More bad news: There are hundreds of data brokers, not all of which offer opt-out processes. Removing yourself from all those that do can be a Sisyphean task, but managing your data with just the following 11 can be accomplished in an hour or two. [...]
Opt out of the following services, and you'll have "gotten all of the big ones," says Stephens -- but pay attention to the caveat at the end of this story.
This is a gigantic pain in the ass, but probably worth the time.
Update: Here's another list.
Earlier estimates of the cost of a bike path, most likely attached to the sides of the approximately 2-mile western suspension span, placed the price at $400 million to $500 million. [...] Because attaching two paths would increase the weight of the suspension span, causing it to flatten slightly, the study suggested replacing the bridge decks with lighter materials, which could push the cost to $800 million to $1 billion.
Are you fucking kidding me? Can you imagine what a billion dollars of bike-infrastructure improvements in the city would look like?
Neither can I. But it wouldn't look like a single bike lane, hanging in the wind off a bridge.
Can you imagine what even ten million dollars of bike-infrastructure improvements in the city would look like?
Actually, I can: it would look like more than half of SFMTA's 2015 budget for bike infrastructure ($17.8M). Instead, we'll get a stack of design-fiction drawings from some parasitic consultancy. What the what?
Obviously improving bicycling infrastructure is a topic relevant to my interests, but this is a comically catastrophic use of public funds. Give me protected bike lanes on every major road in the city first, and you know what? I'll take the fucking train when I have to cross the bay.

I cannot find an image of what Unicode character 'SIGN OF THE HORNS' looks like, but I hope it's fucking metal.
I still think it's wrong that there is no , though.
