Andre Fiore's Cookie Census

This was another cool project, the Cookie Census. It lets you go to a website and identify what cookies are there and who placed them, and it will also show you the javascripts and little tracking bugs in the page. Right now it's not so robust, but once Andrea get's it working just a little more reliably, I think will be a great tool for data-mining. He says he will make it into a Firefox plugin, and I hope he does soon because I would love to see what is going on at the sites I most often visit.

I guess I should have taken my beer out of the picture; oh well...That makes it so much more authentic as being taken at a real event, where I sat with this project long enough to drink a beer while I talked to Andrea about it.
