The future is decentralised...

Quite like the dressing down Google & Facebook got in the UK today.

Wondering if similar is happening in other countries or not?

Found Cory Doctorow's piece about why he aurgues with people in the open really interesting.

I do find this piece quite interesting.

In Europe, we are looking to create alternatives rather than work within the big corps.

So glad for this... At long last Google has finally added the ability to block people via Google Drive

Got so much spam via Gdrive sharing

Got to say this is pretty cool stuff from Mozilla, who are totally embracing their trusted position in the browser/data ecosystem

Its shocking to see the reaction to the UK's ICO's cookie guidence - youtube.com/watch?v=TOei5vMhgD

I understand the sensitivity but we need to respect peoples personal decisions. Yes its going to be painful but for example, I accept cookies on sites which provide value to me. I reject on ones which do not. The wild west of cookies is coming to an end.

I would click accept on twit.tv and I do live in the UK.

Quite like the little Youtube short/drama the FT has done - youtube.com/watch?v=4WTpO9y2Dh

Its quite UK focused but aspects apply across different countries, companies and governments as they bring in more survillence systems.

Say after me but for real

Listening to Tech news weekly, I'm sure the story about Facebook not informing users isn't possible in the EU under GDPR? - reuters.com/article/us-faceboo

In the last hour of work I have done, zoom, teams and jitsi. Then I'm listening to Twit talking about zoom burn out :D

US Politics 

I'm surprised the hike to a $15 minimum wage being debated in the US Congress is so controversial.

When I was in high school in 1972 I worked at McDonald's for $3.25/hour. In 2021 dollars that's $21/hour.

$15 is the LEAST we should do.

Speaking of which, Sunday our finance expert, TechCrunch's Alex Wilhelm will join Philip-Elmer Dewitt and Christina Warren on TWiT. :twit:

Topic #1: /r/WallStreetBets vs the world. What a fascinating story!
