Cookie Paranoia Wins Awards!

yum wrote in to send us a story about Luckman Interactive winning An Award from Discover Magazine for writing cookie filtering software. Considering how amazingly difficult doing that would be, congratulations to everyone involved. The first article is funny too, it talks about how evil corporations are tracking us using cookies that they deposit on our harddrives. I can't believe cookie paranoia isn't dead yet, but I'm even more amazed that software promoting cookie paranoia can win an award. Especially when most web browsers have it built in. Ugh. I guess it really isn't about creating software people need as much as it is about making people think they need it. I guess that's Screen Savers still exist.
