Remembering hero John Lewis- speaking up and out so powerfully against dangers of face recognition in 2018. "We need technology to help resolve human problems, not to add to the mountain of injustices presently facing people of color in this country."

Excited to share the screen with this brilliant lineup at tomorrow's Rightscon panel . Tune in at 10:15am ET for a deep-dive on surveillance, data governance, and algorithmic regulation.

Ok ok hear me out. What if people had to pay to disable notifications? Seems like a really smart idea.

Today's a bummer: and I lost our case in the 9th Circuit, seeking to unseal the DOJ's secret attempt to force FB to change Messenger's encryption so that it could wiretap voice calls.

Hi, thanks! A bit too much of a bankshot for my taste, but it's an interesting idea.

Appreciate the clarification (and the cosign). I think we disagree about where incrementalism in this instance ultimately leads.

Thank you for this thoughtful response! Three reactions: 1) Increasingly complicated opt-out rules won't (I don't think) protect a broad base of people; 2) There are better alternatives (Privacy for All in CA in 2019); and 3) To simplify massively, incrementalism has costs.

I would like to hear more about that foregone opportunity, . But I will add that incremental political progress has often been the culmination of decades of work by people calling for transformative change.

Californians deserve a real privacy law. Prop 24 isn't it. Honored to join the opposition to Prop 24, including , , , , , , , and .

And Prop 24 is full of loopholes and exceptions that are—how to put this delicately—real bad for privacy. Exceptions for the credit reporting industry, loopholes for big tech, no protection for workers, and new ways for the police to put a freeze on your rights.

Especially in the middle of a health and economic crisis, we need to speak up when policies don't START by centering the most vulnerable and protecting them first.

As a result, Prop 24 benefits big tech and corporate interests, and will disproportionately harm vulnerable communities, like Black and Latinx families and the elderly. It's the wrong approach for privacy in California (and everywhere else).

The truth is, working people don't have the time to do the paperwork and they can't afford to pay companies to respect their wishes.
