Facial recognition technologies are not the big story with the linked article (see full post). Where this company obtained its data is a far bigger concern, IMHO.

Breaking the law in order to support those enforcing the law, is not a great business model.

Privacy policies & practices are key, but it goes both ways my friends.  

YOU must develop & follow them, as well as the businesses, apps, sites, software, products, and services you use.

Have I gone mad about privacy? No, it's always been a concern of mine, from many perspectives.  It is also the topic of discussion for my audio podcast's January episodes. So there's that.

Surveillance Capitalism. Cambridge Analytica. Data Rights. Human Rights. Privacy Policies & Practices. CCPA.

If you're interested in any of these topics, maybe you can help me learn a few things?  Check out my Patreon posts and our January podcast episodes for my two cents.

Truly wishing you & yours all the best in 2020. Happy New Year my friends!

Thank you to all of my guests for their patience during my unexpected break.  It was very much necessary, and your understanding is very much appreciated.

Listeners can comment on my posts at Patreon with their Google or Facebook accounts too; you do not have to donate to participate.

Coming up in the next few episodes we'll be chatting about The Great Hack documentary, Cambridge Analytic and how private industry knows far more about what you do in the privacy of your own home than the government ever will.

Thanks for the ❤️ and support my friends.  Keep being great and doing great things!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year my friends!  Just a quick note to pass along season's greetings, and give you a heads up regarding upcoming topics for my podcast, Nerds & Non/Sense™ .

In our January, 2020 episodes we'll be discussing The Illusion of Privacy.  Cambridge Analytica, "The Great Hack" documentary on Netflix, the Best Selling book "The Age of Surveillance Capitalism", and chatting about how metadata about your daily activities is used to not only predict, but influence your behavior.  How you are the commodity, and most of you still don't even understand the extent to which you've facilitated this.

In our February, 2020 episodes we'll be discussing Work/Life Balance.  Mandatory professional therapy and mental health resources & evaluations for digital evidence practitioners, and how they should be mandated in ALL agency SOPs, IMHO.

I hope everyone has been doing well during my social media absence. I have spent the last month focusing on family transitions, and supporting those closest to me who have helped & been there for me for so long. It's truly been refreshing, disconnecting in order to connect.

Anxious to get back into rythm with the show, spewing nonsense, laughter & love every two weeks. So much to talk about, so many I want to talk with.

I greatly appreciate everyone's patience & understanding during this unexpected break, as well as the kind words of concern and support some have shared.

Episode 3 drops tomorrow at 10 PM Pacific, and will include all of the content & interviews that were scheduled for episode 2....and more.

Thanks for the ❤ and support my friends. Keep being great, and doing great things!
