When you’re watching Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift is watching you.
“a kiosk was set up for adoring fans to view videos of her … the kiosk took photos of people looking at the videos. The images were sent back to a “command post” in Nashville where they were cross-referenced, using facial recognition technology, with a database of people who had been identified as potential stalkers of the pop star.”
so on the eve of the #tumblr shutdown, Tumblr IP-blocked the Internet Archive.
Just to be EXTRA dicks.
Facebook has patented technology that predicts who else lives in your household based on photos you shared. Maybe you should be keeping them to yourself...
Is it even worth me trying to come up with ideas for a talk on Decentralized social networks and presenting it to social media conferences? (In the UK specifically)
Would I just be talking to the wrong crowd? Or is that the sort of crowd that needs presenting to?
Never done a talk before, and to be honest have never thought about it till now. (The thought terrifies me) I just have a desire to try and help this world in some way. Sick of sitting at sidelines.
Any advice welcome. :) / @aral

Made a redesign* of my new website https://davidpeach.co.uk (now a static HTML site generated by Jekyll).
It is very basic as I only have one post so far.
I'm aware that the line heights and fonts are all over the place and don't look too nice right now.
I wanted to get it out there and then iterate on it every day or so instead of never launching it. :)
*I use the term "design" loosely
@aral I just heard about something called "Hifa" in one of your talks. (Not sure if I've spelt that correctly?
Do you have any more information on it please? Got me intrigued :)
