Being the week that’s in it, we remember a former flagship of Irish technology with an unfortunate history. Titanic has been somewhat rehabilitated by the movies in recent years, but the current fad for using it in marketing is still a bit of an acquired taste.
Facebook appear to be dragging their heels slightly in complying with the Irish Data Protection Commisioner audit requirements, but the DPC Office says they are satisfied. Some of Facebook’s critics however are not satisfied. Conn tries out the “Download Your Data” service but wonders where is the information they collect from all the Like buttons?
Facebook say they’re happy with CISPA, the new cybersecurity bill, but the White House is not. Michele thinks we can expect it will need major amendments if it is ever going to pass. But the Calyx Institute have a plan to set up an ISP which would find themselves incapable of complying with a request from law-enforcement for customer data. Their proposal: end-to-end encryption of all services.
Finally, Michele’s found his motivation for exercise: running from Zombies!
