I Tried Hiding From Silicon Valley in a Pile of Privacy Gadgets


This is a fun romp about how #Surveillance #Capitalism has become as #Omnipresent as the magnetic field of the Sun.

Michael Rupp reshared this.

I use Google, Facebook, Amazon, Lyft, Uber, Netflix, Hulu, and Spotify. I have two Amazon Echos, a Google Home, an iPhone, a MacBook Air, a Nest thermostat, a Fitbit, and a Roku. I shared the secrets of my genetic makeup by spitting in one vial for 23andMe, another for an ancestry site affiliated with National Geographic, and a third to test my athletic potential.
You’re an idiot.

Have any of you had a chance to view the Cambridge Analytica documentary on Netflix?
It's pretty good — and was recorded as the recent scandal was in the news with most of the principles at Cambridge involved in the documentary.

I'm one of those fools, that went along with an extended family members idea, to have our genetics tested by the National Geographic Societies recent study. I regretted it, when we got the results back — They were generically vague!

I haven't seen it yet, but I added it to my list probably on your suggestion.

The podcast was good listening BTW. #surveillanceCapitalism

And this is more of an attempt to embed a PeerTube video via iFrame than to comment cause obviously, Google is the worst.

Good attempt, not working on my end unfortunately. Probably only need to insert the URL. I wouldn't worry about using an iFrame. HTH

Oh, that's weird cause your on a Friendica server too. It renders right on my screen. The iframe is built into the BBCode. It's basically [iframe] url for the content that came from their embedded content <iframe> code [/iframe].

Yeah, strange, so it renders on your screen after posting, is that what you're confirming? I usually use the preview option, if it doesn't render there it probably won't elsewhere — Unless, the admin of my instance has disabled iframes for security reasons. I'm stumped ...
Update: I'm embarrassed, the fault is entirely on my end. One of my extensions blocked the source, so the iframe renders perfectly here!
