For episode 58 of Geek News Radio we got Mike on board again and he brought up the topic of Cambridge Analytica for Dave and me to discuss. We had a really good exchange on that topic and also on the recent Uber accident. It was quite a news heavy show, uncharacteristically so for Geek News Radio.
We also have some Dinner For One talk and a Vier Feldherren update. The show’s just been released, go have a listen!
Some thoughts on Brian Acton saying people should get off Facebook
The other day, I had an interesting Twitter discussion with my friend Char. In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, WhatsApp founder Brian Acton had jumped on the #DeleteFacebook bandwagon. To my eyes, this was an extremely hypocritical move. The man reportedly made billions from selling his app to Facebook. To now suddenly tell people, from a position of extreme wealth, to never use their services again is something that you just don’t do.
