Re: Fookin' Goog 'n' Farcebook again

Shoshana Zuboff is indeed great and her book, Surveillance Capitalism is a must read! Thanks for sharing.

She does and here’s a wonderful little story of where and how the awakening and rebellion should begin.

Re: Fookin' Goog 'n' Farcebook again

Yesterday, Josh Nesbitt of Hey! talked to Laura Kalbag from the Small Technology Foundation (ABA Accessibility for Everyone, Better Browser, site.js) and they had a great chat on a range of surveillance capital themes but also the pinch points that developers find themselves in when employing or being asked to employ big corp services.

The video is now available online on heyst.ac for anyone that’s interested (on YouSchoob, though :-/). Here’s the synopsis:

How can we use the web for social good? What tools and techniques already exist, and how can we retain our rights while we use them? In this discussion with Laura and Hey! founder Josh Nesbitt, we’ll cover technologies that improve our everyday lives as well as powering online movements, and how those same technologies can be used against us. Over the past few years, Laura has invested her time fighting for the regulation of surveillance capitalism, while building alternatives in her work for the Small Technology Foundation. In today’s world, activism increasingly relies on technology, making now a more important time than ever to discuss how technology can be used quickly and safely to spread facts and support action.

BTW: @Bloke: Josh must be from your neck of the woods.

Me wishes a text version (transcript, …) was available for this kind of events / talks. I really don’t have the patience to spend one hour to listen to some people talking, especially when it is hard to understand the language (native English speakers are much more difficult to understand than non-native speakers).

Re: Fookin' Goog 'n' Farcebook again

I sat through it on your behalf, phiw13. It was really interesting.

Thanks for sharing, jakob. I might reach out to Josh since he’s local. Not quite sure under what guise, but I like his ethics.

Oh, I am sure it is interesting, that is why I am mildly annoyed that no transcript is available.

Listening to the video in the background would mean I miss (misunderstand) most of it. I would need to actively listen the whole time, scrub back and forth when I it is hard to understand etc. 30 min video means about 1h of my time. minimum.

( always grateful for Prof. Michael Hudson for posting his talks and chats to his website with a transcript)

Do… The worst you can get is a cold shoulder. The only way we can make txp more visible is to knock doors.

It was on Thursday evening, and their first in that format, so that is missing (at the moment anyway) but I can imagine having a transcript is important to her too given her advocacy for accessibility. She did mention many topics she’s talked about before, so you‘ll find several of her other talks on noti.st but obviously not the Q&A aspect. See also laurakalbag.com for more info.
