Very interesting article by Louise Matsakis in Motherboard. The article is worth reading, and here’s the video from it:
From the 1995 interview: “We are less and less willing to pay for things that make civilization possible.”
A lost interview (1995) with award-winning Sy Fy writer Octavia Butler and filmmaker Julie Dash at her home in Los Angeles for Marc Boothe, Digital Diaspora, and “40 Acres & A Microchip” the first black cyberspace conference in the UK for digerati of African descent.
“to re-examine our relationship to our cultures and the way we represent them through the use of digital technology.”
At the link is the video of the interview.
Video is worth watching, and the report explains what you’re seeing.
The video is via this Motherboard article by Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai:
For almost two years, the FBI has been trying to tell us that phones and computers that use hard-to-break encryption would doom us all to a future of unsolvable crimes and uncatchable criminals.
Earlier this year, when the FBI couldn’t get into the phone of a dead terrorist, the encryption debate, which has actually been going on and off for more than 20 years, finally had its moment in the sun. The debate is extremely complex, but the position of the FBI can be boiled down to a simple concept: There shouldn’t be unbreakable locks, because nobody is above the law. (By the way, that’s actually pretty much what a much-anticipated—and then much-ridiculed—Senate bill says.)
But is that really true? And why should you, common law-abiding citizen care? John Oliver already did a pretty good job at answering that question, but a new animated video from CGP Grey might be the best simple explainer we’ve seen to date. . .
