[14:44] Ghost Host: Privacy Workshop-Surveillance Capitalism
In the spirit of October, join us to learn about the horrors of what is happening to your data!
Manipulation of your thoughts, is not a myth… it is a well funded science.
Harvard professor Shoshana Zuboff wrote a monumental book about the new economic order that is alarming. “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism,” reveals how the biggest tech companies deal with our data. How do we regain control of our data? What is surveillance capitalism? In this documentary, Zuboff takes the lid off Google and Facebook and reveals a merciless form of capitalism in which no natural resources, but the citizen itself, serves as a raw material.
We will be watching Shoshana Zuboff on surveillance capitalism | VPRO Documentary
Come learn from the people studying this professionally. And then chat with us after, perhaps about what you’re doing to protect your privacy, and/or ask questions from those who know about simple [and more complicated] techniques that we can implement easily, and share with our friends
Some Questions:
What topics are you most interested in reviewing?
What times or days work best for attending?

[15:59] Chris Thompson: Interesting Facebook activity re: VR. VR is becoming more mainstream now - largely "thanks" to them, offering a ~$600 device for 300 + our data.

[16:01] Chris Thompson: FB purchased one of the leading hardware manufacturers and the majority of the software developers...
[16:01] Sha: oh
[16:03] Sha: I feel like the best loophole finders always utilize law to their advantage
[16:05] Sha: Do you ever feel like the laws are agreed upon with the fail safe in mind?
[16:06] Sha: Public schools currently enforce chrome book usages
[16:06] Chris Thompson: I'm sure certain holes have been designed, but I'm not sure how often that happens.
[16:06] Chris Thompson: RE: GDPR - "Plain language" is a requirement for Terms of service.
[16:07] Chris Thompson: "One of the core requirements of the GDPR is transparency using clear and plain language."
