What happens when you watch my BBC Ideas video on Surveillance Capitalism or if you embed it on your own site?
That’s right… you get tracked! And you expose your visitors to third-party tracking.
Isn’t #SurveillanceCapitalism fun?
I suspect those at the BBC would be under the impression that this is the way the internet works.
To not have these "features" would be bizarre to them.
not even a new thing, have a look at this Flickr album (the chap who uploaded it had to wait 30 years before the place was declassified), and they had a commercial agreement with VOA to retransmit their propaganda.
a fair few of their engineers were once bright young things from the offshore pirate radio stations (parallels with todays startup culture...)
@RunningInCircles Well, I just also emailed my contact and said that I would be happy to talk to them about how they can stop perpetuating third-party tracking and profiling. Let’s see what they say and how it goes. No harm in trying :)
@harald Thanks, Harald :)
I can't help but laugh at the irony.
@aral boo! Now is there a way to get the video hosted somewhere else? Hahaha.
This is my personal Mastodon.
