23068 Rambam's talk at HOPE X
Kinda late but nonetheless. In case some of you haven't seen it.
Long (2 hours and 20 minutes, plus 18 minutes of Q&A) but IMO worth it. Creepy too.

He talks mostly about surveillance facilitated by private sector, focussing on the so-called open-source intelligence and emphasising there is no difference between the government and corporate surveillance — the former being outsourced to the latter and other data from the latter may be gathered by the former with or without a warrant/subpoena. He also mentions Snowden's material and covers some of the not so recent stuff. The conclusion is not very bright.

Expand all images.

Interesting beeb documentary featuring Jacob Applebaum, Julian Assange, Ed Snowden's disembodied voice, TOR, Bitcoin, Some technology wonks and da Offorities.

Surprisingly even handed considering the content.


I'm watching that lecture now. I'm thinking excellent plot for a sci-fi thing would be to put GPS dust in cocaine and use it to track perps.

I think that we're essentially in a state of flux at the moment. The draconian dinosaurs in power have this technology which they don't really understand and are using it to try and create a panopticon. But ultimately, the increasing connectivity will make these feudalistic hierarchical power structures untenable and lead to the implementation of actual egalitarian democracy.

Ultimately was it not the internet that led to the decline and fall of pederasty in powerful organizations? (first the Catholic Church, then the Media, then the Govt)

In my most humble and uninformed oikish opinion what we are witnessing is akin to the use of the written word to oppress the massess following the creation of the Gutenberg printing press. These villainous people campaigning for transparency and digital rights are analogous to Lutheran Heresies

Something something Marshall McLuhan, something something Serial Experiments Lain.

As someone who spent a bit too long thinking about both of these at uni, that really made me laugh, thanks.

>1:40:40 - do you put a comma before and even though it's grammatically incorrect?

Oi Mr. Computer guy. Stick to what you know and don't be trying to rile up a shitstorm amongst the grammaticists

Saw this a while ago.

What I love is how ten years ago this was tinfoil hat crazy talk. Nowadays it's commonplace fact.

And to think we are only on the iceberg tip. This technology is only going to get more advanced and more integrated with society. I'm not sure I like the shape of the future.

Don't worry, a decade or two of pseudo-fascistic hell and then the oil run out and make the whole thing unsustainable.

He has apparently been giving this same talk with the same slides for twenty years. Each time he gets to add more details.

Well, I certainly remember reading a transcript of at least one of them.
One particularly ugly problem is when you cannot afford not to to give in to something, although it may be presented as if you 'have a choice'. Say, the public buys into this recent 'Quantified Self' HealthKit-type hype and starts to meticulously track themselves and their state. Of course, the data flows everywhere, from doctors to marketers and insurers. Then this tracking becomes mandatory—and you are fucked.

Not sure if not tin-foil but sage anyway.

And, what was the last question in the Q&A? I couldn't discern it.
