Stuff produced in the most narrowly focused crucible known to mankind (let alone humankind) “Can we?” designed to trump “Should we?” 1/2
@tiffanycli@AnnemarieBridy These are businesses mainly born in white heat of investor ambition. Odds of success making Hunger Games look like a middle school race where everyone gets a participation prize.
Then we dish out praise for post hoc mea culpas while they dry their eyes with spare $100s
@tiffanycli@AnnemarieBridy Where is motivation to moderate for potentially harmful use once a thing launch? Where is persistent accountability? Why is an official using big data to get re-elected going slam on those brakes.
This is no longer about microwaving pets, or road safety
I need to read this. Context is queen. What skill and data is needed to re-ID folk? Is it looking for people they know? Do they have source data? Do they have rich profiles to correlate? How likely is it that VR data is exposed to a person with that knowledge, data, and skill?
I’m with the folk defining ‘anonymous’ very narrowly. If you can single folk out to a small area, or small group, and have any historic or future sight of place / date / time, there’s no way it stays anonymous, but that doesn’t mean that there’s intolerable risk of harm.
I want call it anonymous so I can duck regulatory requirements ignore data subjects, do what I like with data, and share willy nilly
It’s different to:
We worked hard to minimise data and risk of re-ID, stop unauthorised re-use, and we continue to protect data
#MapCamp is crazy. I keep spotting people I know, follow, or want to meet. To present was fabulous and daunting, but most of all a great way to see all the different ways folk use #WardleyMaps.
Not had lots of time for other sessions, very pleased it's recorded!
As a long-time GRC person, this really does feel like home. Risk management is mapping uncertainty. Where we cannot quantify exposure we work to transparently clarify our current location, things influencing that position and trajectory, and how we can move to a better place.
Needless to say that just makes me want to get the crayons out again :-)
Now apply this to all the favoured Vote Leave memes.
We’ve only lost out on blitz spirited, sunlit, free-trade, wealth boosting, benefit from immigrant ejecting, £350m for NHS gifting, global power regaining, parliamentary power restoring Brexit cos of media and remainder scum
As opposed the the fact all that was made up and sold to people who desperately needed hope, desperately wanted change, or desperately needed a socially acceptable hook on which to hang their prejudice.
So our COVID app will now get built on decentralised Apple / Google foundations. But as this thread rightly says, don’t lose sight of how useful any app is for this purpose and the tech precedent now in place
First a plea to worth spare a thought for #DataProtection#InfoSec#Privacy and all other related crews, who work to keep these folk accountable for protecting the data you share to access the necessary, fascinating, or fun stuff you do online. /2
Worrying about this stuff is exhausting and we all compromise privacy for access because the machine is designed to win that way. It is a war of attrition. But you can do small things and change a few habits to keep you and yours safer while we tackle the gnarlier stuff /3
