“Terms and conditions”, another observation

Back in 2007 I wrote about [RSS feeds for “Terms and Conditions”][tandc_rss] updates. But this week I have been traveling, hooking up to a lot of free wifi hotspots, and agreeing to a bunch of T&C’s, mostly [without reading said agreements][preposterous]. (I know, it’s preposterous. I should be worried about becoming a HUMANCENTiPAD at this point.)

However, I *have* read enough of these T&C agreements to know that I agree with many of the standard clauses, e.g. I promise not to spam people, engage in illegal online activities, etc. Perhaps if these standard clauses *were* truly standardized, with well-known identifiers, I could pre-agree to them. Then it would just be a matter of checking the non-standard (or not-agreed-to) clauses.

About Jim Vanderveen

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
