Yesterday a brief breath of fresh air with #FacebookDown lasting a full 6 hours. We need more clean air online.

Just now this was brought to my attention: A #GoFundMe to support the #Facebook whistleblower who decided to make her identity public.

Help end #surveillancecapitalism


@humanetech Just FYI: “ The Facebook Whistleblower, Frances Haugen, Says She Wants to Fix the Company, Not Harm It … ‘If people just hate Facebook more because of what I’ve done, then I’ve failed’ … ‘I don’t hate Facebook,’ she wrote. ‘I love Facebook. I want to save it.’”

@aral Aha, wasn't aware. And of course strongly disagree with her there.

Apart from that in general whistleblower protection is a good thing imo, even if the person involved has motives that not fully align.

@humanetech @aral

Shovels and compost are need to grow flowers #failbook is a huge pile of fresh shit that needs shovaling.

@aral I think she wants to sell a book. We have known for some time FB and such give 2 fucks about ANYTHING other than $$

@aral Think she's probably trained to say these things to make her testimony more "credible" to the senators (and the non-tech public). Who knows what she's actually thinking?
