Quotes

Herself - Former Director of Business Development for Cambridge Analytica: [in front of committee of inquiry] I have been offered introductions to clients that I refused to meet with before, such as the Alternative for Germany and Marine Le Pen's campaign. I refused to even get on the phone call with them.

Nothing new, but a vey relevant topic
25 July 2019 | by pedrogoloSee all my reviews

Netflix's The Great Hack (2019) is a very timely documentary to remember how our personal data can be used in ways we do not understand and aiming to change our behaviour against our interests. The film dissects a critical look on how Brexit and the latest US Elections suffered from unethical use of data mining and psychographics. An urgent call for us to protect better our data and request with our consumption patterns that our rights are always defended by the tech giants
