Treat Customer Data Like You’d Want Yours to Be Treated

Last Christmas, I bought a friend of mine a subscription to a science and culture magazine. She had discovered the magazine during downtime at work, so she was delighted when they started showing up at her door. The gift was a hit, despite the fact that I’d misspelled her name. But then other magazines offers started to arrive in the mail. Then came requests for donations from charitable groups. Next, travel agency ads. And then came the political mailers. Once she activated her digital subscrip...

California's Right to Repair Bill, killed by Big Ag and Apple, has been reintroduced

Last year, California was one of several states to introduce right to repair legislation that would force companies to end practices that discourage the independent repair sector, creating a requirement to sell replacement parts, provide documentation, and supply codes to bypass DRM systems that locked new parts out of devices until the company activated them. The bills were mostly defeated, thanks to coalitions led by Apple -- which subsequently warned its investors that its profits were...

An internet pioneer is doubtful Mark Zuckerberg can refocus Facebook on privacy. Here's why. (FB)

Internet pioneer Paul Vixie is dubious about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's plan to create a "privacy focused" social networking platform. Vixie, the CEO of Farsight securities, has worked on privacy and security issues for decades. The concepts of "private" and "social" are fundamentally at odds, and no one yet has figured out a way to blend the two, he said. Facebook may be feeling constrained by Europe's new privacy law, which illustrates how difficult it can be to promote both privacy and ...
