Least evil privacy policy handling ever

Okay, I am amazed. Seriously.

I have always wished companies would take privacy policies and ToS seriously, and make it easy to find out what’s changing.

Tumblr uses a git repository for their privacy policy.

Dude. BEST IDEA EVER. Okay, I know maybe not everyone knows how to use git, but thanks to the magic of github, you can just sorta click around and see changes. Now, in the case of a major revision, that’s not exactly change bars, but wait! You can do anything you want with those diffs. You can filter them through any change-detection or correlation tool you want. You can make side-by-sides of them.

Best. Idea. Ever. Everyone should do this.
