Following the "revelation" of #WhatsApp chats of Bollywood actors, a short #thread on the #tech, #encryption #surveillance and #law. How did the police access the chats and what it means for privacy. 1/n
Messaging apps like #WhatsApp and @signalapp offer end-to-end #encryption. Incidentally, the protocol for both was designed by one of my favourite engineers and genius @moxie and his group.
Two key things to remember about accessing data -- is the data at rest (on your device) or in transit (when you hit the send message). If it's in transit, then e-to-e encryption makes its difficult to intercept. Only 10 agencies in India are notified to do this interception

Hello world! It’s @tim_lytc checking in for the morning. I’m a NEW TALENT Fellow on the programme. I’m a Queer dance creative working across theatre, film and creative tech. My work is centred on advocating for gender, health, race and Queer issues.
My #digitalplacemaking research looks at the potentials of combining #Dance & Movement with #CreativeTechnology to create safer spaces for #Queer folks. Check out my page for a little taste of what I've done✨
At the beginning, I was inspired by past work I had done with @LiminaImmersive @SplashAndRipple @lisamaythomas And their approach to bodies and technology - The conscious effort to create comfortable, inclusive spaces, where audiences could escape and connect at the same time.

With threats of #homelessness and #bankruptcy in the air as the #eviction moratoriums subside, both renters & small #landlords are getting pinched by predatory #tech #capitalism as the #gigeconomy hits the #RealEstate market.
by Raul Diego @hijodelcuervo…
A “tsunami” of #evictions is about to sweep across the US when the 120-day #moratorium ends today, threatening millions of Americans with #homelessness or worse – a new set of #landlords called #Facebook, #Google and #Apple.

💡🦾🖥️ Hey it's a NE tech thread! 💡🦾🖥️

People have asked which North East digital tech companies I mentioned on today's Digi Drive launch - firms across the region which have been innovating as a response to the pandemic. There are no doubt countless examples but here's a few:
Teesside 3D Visualisation, interactive digital media and digital consultation pioneers @Animmersion caught my eye in April when the team launched virtual, interactive events tech.…
Next up was leading no-code, drag & drop enterprise app builder @nutshellapps which is helping @networkrail go paperless!…

Fascinating experiment! We need more diversity in tech. Here's what the experiment shows ... THREAD.
Not all photos are uploaded to Twitter using the correct specs to optimize display on Twitter. For example ...
Twitter apparently taught its algorithm to find the most interesting / relevant parts of of photos, then display a cropped version of those pics such that the most relevant part shows up as a thumbnail.

As #tech sold off in the last 2 weeks, there were still places that were resilient during this time period. Whether tech gets through the consolidation phase or breaks lower, time will tell.

Meanwhile few ideas on longs and shorts going forward. 1/
On the long side, equity exposure in #transports, #materials and int'l mkts like #Germany and #Korea worked well. Exposure in these areas continues to stay bullish.

Vols are showing upticks as well, so should stay careful.

Commodities in bullish trend while #Gold and #Silver are consolidating for the time being: #Palladium, #Copper, #Coffee, #SoyBeans

What’s happening to #Tech stocks and the markets in September 2020 and what is #FED really worried about - is the #Equities or #Bonds ?

Markets never work in a straight line up or straight line down , every market has to go through a period of correction/consolidation to resume
its journey

NASDAQ was a overbought market in June to August 2020 , but we are not in any serious trouble to disturb the long term bullish trend and why ?

Because Credit Market hasn’t broken down yet , while the media and investors are focused in the Equity markets ,

The QE program was more about buying

1) US Sovereign bonds, called Treasuries

2) US Municipal Bonds

3) US Corporate Bonds

Happy Friday folks!!

Here is a bright, shiny new trade deal for you as a gift wrapped #Brexit present from our friends in #Japan 🎎🇯🇵🏮🏯

Remainers said we couldn't get a better deal than the #EU

Here's why they were wrong...(again)

[1] Digital is the future and this is streets ahead of the EU deal in that respect. There is an increased level of data recognition & a ban on data localisation, which will prevent UK businesses from having the extra cost of setting up servers in Japan. Huge for our #Tech sector.
[2] Financial services are our biggest export to Japan, accounting for 28% of all UK exports. This deal provides increased access for our invaluable Financial Services industry and much deeper regulatory co-operation - something the #EU wouldn't allow.

“The fact that we are handing over the keys of American #democracy to the military-industrial complex — it’s like giving the keys to the henhouse to a fox and saying, ‘here come in and take whatever you want.’ It’s obviously dangerous.”

Going to have to add my comments on a "replay" of @DisrupTVShow. Paul Sheard, renowned economist w/ @Kennedy_School sharing some many stats I can't capture quickly enough. Follow-up at a later time. 👏👏Mr. Sheard - What a genius!!

@rwang0 @ValaAfshar #DisrupTV
So this definitely required a '"rewatch" to fully comprehend the breadth and depth of Paul Sheard's @Kennedy_School comments.

Here is how to see this and other episodes of @DisrupTVShow on @Vimeo (click on either embedded screenshot).

Mr. Sheard begins the dialogue speaking to the "disconnect btw the Real Economy & the Financial Markets (IT sector) Economy".

Covid- Feb-3.5%->April-14.7%=11.2%⬆️ in 2 mos.
Great Recession- Aug 2008-6.1%->14 mos. later-10.0%=3.9%⬆️
