So you're informed?

Given the pick up on a very recent paper at CHI on the complexity of 'terms and conditions' and issues of informed consent I think Ewa can call impact for this research output since bettingexpert.com have picked it up and applied it to a bunch of betting websites - their results here.

The literatin plugin has featured here before simply because I'm using it everyday now to inform myself of how badly wrong the "informed consent" model of digital services is. (Psst - we are not informed so there is no consent.)

Due to circumstance beyond my control I found myself in Egypt recently and captured this image - I did think that given the general literacy of the day, it managed to both convey the relevant detailed message to those that could read the hieroglyphs and yet a  simple to understand message to those that couldn't.

Ts&Cs as graphics?
