Frank Meeuwsen writes about the upcoming European GDPR and how its provisions might apply to personal websites (in Dutch). While he concludes that the GDPR does not apply to sites like his, he suggests that the spirit of the GDPR is something to aspire to, regardless (auto-translated):
Nevertheless, I do not think it’s a bad idea to give more clarity and transparency [to] what I store on my site and for what reason. Starting with the statistics.
(I’d completely forgotten that Frank posted videos of the Reboot conference Pecha Kucha sessions back in 2006, including my own. Apparently I’ve been interested in public data for a very long time.)
