I’ll be on Inside Story on Aljazeera today to discuss how we can regulate the abuses of surveillance capitalists like Facebook/Google and how we can create an alternative to surveillance capitalism where we fund ethical technology owned and controlled by individuals from the commons for the common good.
We will be recording at 13:30 GMT and it will air at 17:30 GMT.
You can watch it on the live stream at: https://www.aljazeera.com/live/
We had a couple of technical issues but I think it went well overall and I feel I managed to get my points across.
Airs at 17:30 GMT. You can watch it on the live steam at https://www.aljazeera.com/live/
Watch online at 17:30 (half an hour from now) at https://www.aljazeera.com/live/
Looks like there are re-runs at 07:30 GMT, and 11:30 GMT: https://www.aljazeera.com/watch_now/epgschedule.html
@boris My goodness, you’d almost think that that’s true of 99.99999% of all publishing/media sites on the face of planet and that we live under surveillance capitalism :)
(And, no, we’re not going to keep quiet and disappear because of it. We’re going to use the tools of the surveillance capitalists against the grain and against their interests to raise awareness while also pushing for regulation and building ethical alternatives to their toxic businesses and products.)
@funbreaker Yeah, me too.
Bummer. Will they reschedule it? I'd like to listen to that conversation.
@cameron Asked them; no response yet. Will post an update when they do :)
@aral Watching now. It's shocking how some people just don't get the fundamentals of the business model involved.
Really well said, everything, thanks for putting those ideas out there!
BTW, isn't Eugen (the main coder of Mastodon) from Germany?
This is my personal Mastodon.
