  7. Google Occupies an Odd Role in Enforcing Privacy Laws

  8. How to Save Your Privacy From the Internet’s Clutches

    "The problem, as ever with the tech industry’s teeny-weeny greyscaled legalise, is that the people it refers to as “users” aren’t genuinely consenting to having their information sucked into the cloud for goodness knows what. Because they haven’t been given a clear picture of what agreeing to share their data will really mean." (via techcrunch.com)

  9. A Simple Tool to Start Making Decisions with the Help of AI

    "There is no shortage of hot takes regarding the significant impact that artificial intelligence (AI) is going to have on business in the near future.
