Rather than listen to Facebook earnings at 5pm or further document the incriminating details in their SEC settlement, I’m headed in for a screening of #TheGreatHack. I bring with me new info and more questions. Keep you posted.
#TheGreatHack Glad I finally had a chance to see it. Really well done, accessible to broader public. Some oddities and observations from me. Will post after the panel.
My big question since I missed it. Did a single analyst ask Facebook about the SEC complaint settlement that stated they spent multiple years covering up rather than disclosing a major privacy data violation that materially impacted their share value? Curious.
On to movie #TheGreatHack, these were my quiet notes to follow up or things I didn’t expect. But first, @profcarroll and @carolecadwalla were amazing roles and I’m really honored to know them and have deep respect for their pursuit of facts and truth despite big obstacles.
Ok, what’s with Brittany Kaiser role? That’s most obvious. I don’t understand how the live footage happened from Thailand of her talking about going public before she did. And her handler in the film, Paul Hilder, is new to me. He was there tonight and left early. Very curious.
The meeting Brittany claims with Corey Lewandowski in Trump Tower in Nov 2015 is curious timing for a number of reasons. I think that’s been reported but I made a note of it. nov/dec 2015 are interesting period where lots of things happened.
Brittany writing questions for Senate hearing with Zuckerberg is bizarre. I guess it’s possible some staffer would think she’s a source of questions but wow. Many people close don’t consider her a whistleblower but an opportunist. Risky.
I found the list of data partners for Cambridge Analytica to be interesting. There is a lot of good evidence on the servers seized by @ICOnews. I’m hopeful they realize the importance of their role in shining a light on the issues as they prepare their next if not final report.
Overall #TheGreatHack was good, accessible. I hope where it gives on reporting detail it providers for a wider audience. Facebook comes off bad but at the same time benefits as they should have come off as beyond terrible.
I was reminded watching the movie how many critical questions were never answered, how Zuckerberg has obfuscated global lawmakers and rushed to DC avoiding deeper scrutiny b4 facts revealed themselves and Sandberg received ZERO questions on Cambridge Analytica. All very strange.
I definitely highly recommend the movie. It’s a critical conversation we need to be having. Let me know what you think. 2020 is around the corner.
