What's so bad about centralized digital platforms?

They roundup billions of people into one pool & make it easy to target everyone at once. That's why Facebook can't stop propaganda ahead of elections.

This is why we #DecentralizeTheNet. #FreedomBox🦋

Face recognition systems can be used to identify people in photos, video, or in real-time. But face recognition data can be prone to error, which can implicate people for crimes they haven’t committed. eff.org/pages/face-recognition source: twitter.com/eff/status/1026996

Last call: We are looking for motivated people to organise events, collaborate with volunteers and various teams, coordinate multiple projects from September/October on.

Google Glass was an interesting case because it showed us people do care about privacy, but only when they feel it's violated.

They will give endless data on themselves and others including photos, video and location but they will outrage the moment they feel privacy is actually at risk - because someone has a camera on their face instead of their hands.

Facebook is actually very clever to obtain all this data without triggering this sensation for the average person.

People know.. but they do not *feel*.
