Online ID / age verification: the death of online search, and non-browser web access?

A (public) draft of a blog post on an unintended, perhaps unnoticed, effect of the current push for ID / online.

Feedback welcome.

@neil I know that at least some of the tools (curl I think) can take access to cokies from a browser


@penguin42 with a shared cookie jar, perhaps, but that requires long term cookies, and browser access in the first place to get the cookie!

@neil Yep, it doesn't help things like spidering; it does help your own backups potentially.
