N.Ireland is once again the rope in the UK/EU tug of war.

(we've been here before, several times 🙄😩)

Both claim to be acting on the grounds of the Good Friday/Belfast 1998 Agreement.

Both have a point…

But it’s complicated.

A twitter thread.
#Brexit #GFA
The Belfast/Good Friday #Agreement has 3 strands.

These strands represent the lines of division that gave rise to the #conflict:
* unionist/nationalist within NI,
* north/south across the border, &
* British/Irish.

The B/GFA formalised cooperation across these lines.
Crucially, all are #interdependent.

Underpinning it all is the British-Irish relationship

That relationship was improved & became closer as a result of being ‘partners in the EU’ 🇪🇺

The EU was also a go-to model for some of that cross-border & multilevel cooperation.

The seven so-called 'ethical principles' are here:…

Many of which vendors are already #legally required to follow, and noting the completed mess they get themselves into over "ownership" in number two... 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ ImageImage
I wonder how many of the vendors following these 'principles' *wouldn't* sell their #biometric wares to @metpoliceuk? (And not just because they failed to win a contract...)

The thing is, if your 'principles' don't meaningfully alter / inhibit behaviour, then they aren't really #principles at all.

Much less #ethical ones...

Good piece by @bryanglick on the #IDkerfuffle:…

This bit 👇 being the closest to the truth that I've seen.

Of course, the 'DCS pilot' (…) is only @HM_Passport, not @DVLAgovuk - and (2) suggests ignorance of existing legislation... Image
...(3) is commercial ass-covering & wishful thinking for a *Government* ID; you want 'em to be #accountable?! 🤣

(4) would have been sensible at any point, but even given #PornID it took *20 YEARS* to get round to even consulting on it...
...(5) where do you think #DCS came from? Rebranding's easy. Ditto code. Operationalisable, citizen-protecting #principles far less so:…

And (6)? Good to see people agree with @NO2ID, but it's not just the #DatabaseState they're concerned about any more...

What does Glenn Greenwald do, after vehemently defending the indefensible & being told off for it by literally everyone, including a group of HSers? Does he admit he was wrong. Oh no...of course not. He uses it to go on a rant that #actually he was the only one w/ principles. Image
This is *literally* what he did (when he wasn't explicitly excusing revenge porn as 'childhood bullying') b/c Coleman was a leftist who was 'pro-choice' & supported #m4a, while history's greatest monster State Rep. Flounderfarber voted alongside the GOP on an anti-choice bill. Image

Simon touches on a key point in his first item.

As with #falsifiability in #science, in #practice '#ethics' only work in the context of a #profession or #community *from which one can be #excluded*.

Those wishing to be #trusted as #ethical must stop issuing '#principles' and...
..setting up #EthicsBoards like @Google's or private courts like @Facebook's @OversightBoard (both demonstrating how poorly #BigTech grasps basic concepts like #justice, let alone #ethics, and how both - as #sovereign powers - have utterly misconceived #community) and start to...
...genuinely #professionalise.

Not in the shitty, self-serving, #cartel-like fashion of many companies & industry bodies in tech, advertising - and yes, DP & privacy - but in broader, deeper, more #connected ways that *could* deliver the #trustworthy #institutions of the future.

1] The #unrelenting #hypocrites who said #Chamisa was afraid of a #Congress & was taking power through boardrooms accuse(d) him of not using #political #tokenism to protect #Mwonzora from #Hwende

They equally wanted #Mudzuri & #Komichi to be rewarded outside Congress #elections.
2] The #unrelenting #hypocrites who accused the #MDC-A of lacking party discipline want to christian #Chamisa a dictator for taking measures to realign party communication channels with the constitution.

They prefer seeing #MDC-A officials excitedly behave like a #Vikings army. ImageImage
3] The #unrelenting #hypocrites pretend like there's no difference between #discipline & #democracy.

They enjoy seeing #MDC-A officials quenching their thirst for rumours & discord by needlessly rushing to the #media to share #personal #opinions even against #party #positions.

1/ Heads up!

I'm preparing a guide to fixing organisational problems in scaling software development teams.

I'd love to talk to you if you're a founder or leader dealing with this! Things I'll cover (feedback welcomed):
2/ A decade plus programming/team building and leadership experience across start ups, global mega banks and sizes inbetween.
3/ A shit ton of research on complexity, psycology, climatic changes in our industry and how the best teams in the world operate. Many of the best resources here have come from people not so much in the public eye, or misunderstood now. Boyd, Musashi, Goldratt and more.

Italian #DPA lock down the risky #surveillance law that aim to have (biometric_identification+cctv+smart_image_analisys) to check public employees punch-in and punch-out.
This time DPA analyze implementing decree.
In october 2018 the DPA did the same on the draft of the main law Image
The law is already in force (D.Lgs 56/2019) but it lacks of application rules.

The DPA is highlighting and pointing out all the issues related to the law itself ant to the application rules, that are conflicting with the #GDPR main #principles.
Main issues are:

1) terms and #definitions don't match with GDPR definitions. they have to be lined up
2) principles of #Necessity & #Proportionality are completely unattended
3) the new biometric gates can't be #mandatory
4) #alternative gates should be available if needed

"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."…
"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."…

Think out of the box:
Normal approach → normal results
Break w/ norms, do things differently & better
Sometimes is not about what you add, but about what you remove
If something is wrong, unnecessary, expensive,… remove it!
@BedrosKeuilian (interesting as the centroid of a cluster, IMHO):

1. Find your purpose
2. Be resourceful, relentless, resilient
3. Set higher expectations
4. Own your life

First: Fail small many times very fast. Learn.

Then: Win big a few times committing to them. Invest.
