Algorithm Might Protect Non-Targets Caught In Target, But Only If The Government Cares What Happens To Non-Targets | Techdirt - 0 views

  •  
    "It's highly unlikely investigative or intelligence agencies have much of an interest in protecting the privacy of non-targeted citizens, even in non-terrorist-related target -- not if it means using alternate (read: "less effective") investigative methods or techniques. It has been demonstrated time and time again that law enforcement is more interested in the most direct route to what it seeks, no matter how much collateral damage is generated. "

Anyone who makes you choose between privacy and security wants you to have neither - Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    "It's clear that surveillance affects a broad group of people, with real painful consequences for their lives. We've seen journalists being monitored, lawyers having their client confidentiality broken, victims of police misconduct being spied on and environmental campaigns infiltrated. These people are not criminals, and yet when we have a system of mass surveillance, they become surveillances for increasingly intrusive powers. "

Targeted ads are one of the world's most destructive trends. Here's why | Arwa Mahdawi | Opinion | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "It has led to a proliferation of fake news and clickbait. It has fuelled surveillance capitalism and normalised pervasive tracking and data-mining. If we want to do something about the proliferation of misinformation and erosion of trust in traditional institutions, it is not enough to regulate or factcheck political adverts. We need to crack down on the use of personal information for all surveillanceed advertising. Otherwise democracy will continue to erode, one highly optimised click at a time."

NSA trove shows 9:1 ratio of innocents to suspicious people in "targeted target" - Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    "The NSA uses laughably sloppy tools for deciding whether a target is a "US person" (a person in the USA, or an American citizen abroad). For example, people whose address books contain foreign persons are presumed by some analysts to be foreign. Likewise, people who post in "foreign" languages (the US has no official state language) are presumed by some analysts to be non-US persons."

If you read Boing Boing, the NSA considers you a target for deep target - Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    "America's National Security Agency gathers unfathomable mountains of Internet communications from fiber optic taps and other means, but it says it only retains and searches the communications of "targeted" individuals who've done something suspicious. Guess what? If you read Boing Boing, you've been targeted."

Open Rights Group - ISC report into Lee Rigby's murder is misleading - 0 views

  •  
    ""When the intelligence services are gathering data about every one of us but failing to act on intelligence about individuals, they need to get back to basics, and look at the way they conduct targeted investigations. "The committee is particularly misleading when it implies that US companies do not co-operate, and it is quite extraordinary to demand that companies pro-actively monitor email content for suspicious material. Internet companies cannot and must not become an arm of the target state."

Billboards are using sensors to identify, target and track individuals / Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    "I can't believe this has to be said (again), but cyberpunk was meant as a warning, not a business plan. It turns out that you need very few identifiers to make a guess about who a person standing in front of a billboard is, especially when you can suck data out of their phones. Throw in data about how long you stand in front of a billboard and you've got metrics that advertisers can use to tune their campaigns."
