Recently there was the 20th ceremony of the Big Brother Award (BBA) in Bielefeld Germany. The award was founded by Digital Courage (formerly known as FoeBuD).

" FLoC is not a privacy-friendly technology. It will not end tracking on the net in any way – quite the contrary… But who could seriously expect this from Google anyway – a company that makes 99% of its revenue from advertising.
