Less surveillance!

I'm no longer using any 3rd-party web analytics products on this site, and have removed the old AddThis 'Share' button as well. I've switched to a self-hosted Piwik installation, which lets me see how many people are using the site, but doesn't send this information off to anyone else (so if you spend all day playing that Boggle game from last week, then only you and I will know about it).
