I think people are getting the wrong idea...

You are already being tracked by websites...be it simple Access logs or by cookies and other info harvesters.

This does plug-in does not track you - it just represents the tracking graphically. (and reveal the “Collusion” of sites tracking you)

Example - When you visit a website - look down in the lower left...you’ll see all the surrogate info collectors flashing by in the status bar (googleanalytics, quantserve, adyeild to name some common ones) - thats the stuff you’ll see in the graph.

If you’re using NoScript or something similar - you probably will appear as untracked - (or you would hope)

If the Ford Foundation wants data - they can just buy it from google - thats how they make money(one of the ways). If anything there blowing the whistle on a lot of info harvesting that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Why buy the data from google if you are a big fat global social engineer and can create own data collection operation?
