- Jonathan Penney: “Whose Speech Is Chilled by Surveillance?”. Answer: more people than most of us thought. And women and young people more than most. Intriguing and important research.
- New York Times:“As Elites Switch to Texting, Watchdogs Fear Loss of Transparency”. This is interesting, not just because some of those self-same elites want to switch off encryption for the rest of us, but also because it means that financial and other regulation — which depends on being able to subpoena records of corporate correspondence — may be undermined.
- Andrew Adonis: “I put up tuition fees. It’s now clear they have to be scrapped.”. Buyer’s remorse from the inventor of the idea.
- “Corporate Surveillance in everyday Life”. Useful insight into surveillance capitalism.
- Sue Halpern: “How He Used Facebook to Win”. ‘He’ being Trump, of course.
