Mother of god, choosing a topic for today's security/privacy blog post is hard!

I have too much choice 😅

    Right a quick little program that let's you input the topics and then it schedules them a few days/weeks apart.

    Edit: Hell that sounds like something I should do to keep practicing for class lol

    @MojoJojo He seems very obsessed with knowing one's gender based on their avatar.

    I have the same problems when it comes to writing prompts.

    You can do what I did. I wrote a random prompt generator in python so I wouldn't have to choose.

    @linuxxx Spectre/meltdown, GDPR law (positives, shortcomings), AR & ambient computing...

    That last one, I had a pretty heated argument with a family member recently when I requested she wouldn't take Christmas dinner pictures including me to post them on Instagram. Call me paranoid, I just don't like it.

    Photos on FB/Instagram are going through ML, tagged by contents. People, scenery and brands, all graphed together in their database, using embedded tags in the image iptc profile.

    Even without accounts, it links your face together with other instances of your face. Without specifically knowing who you are... yet. Your behavior has more value than your name.

    Girl in the coffee shop takes a picture of the line of waiting people? They know you were there. Mom takes family photo? Location and relationships are stored.

    Without permission, you are tagged and stored in a network of people and products.

    Now Google comes with small always-on cameras for people to wear wherever they are...

    @linuxxx I think this will be one of the biggest invasions of privacy this decade.

    I don't have a problem with certain Google services, and *I* can choose to use them knowing fully that I'm providing them with personal data.

    But soon, everyone will start gathering data about everyone, yelling "chill bro, I'm just filming this for my attention-whore-profile" as a defense.

    You won't be able to pick who you share data with anymore, because others will do it for you.
