Update: Dapper Provides Opt-Out

I am currently in the middle of very involved talks with a representative of the Dapper service, which I recently profiled. I will have more comments and thoughts on this conversation soon, most likely the beginning of next week.

However, I did want to announce that Dapper has provided a means for Webmasters to opt out of having their content used by the service.

While this is not a perfect solution, it is a step in the right direction and is proof that Dapper is at least thinking about these potential problems.

I’ll have more information about my conversations with Dapper sometime at the beginning of next week.
