Researchers found that varying the intensity of a laser pointed at a smart speaker’s mic could trick it into behaving as if it were receiving voice commands—silently telling Alexa to make purchases or unlock doors via a window from hundreds of feet away. https://t.co/nhw4XWAKLy

It drives me crazy when people still bring up the stupid comment, “well, if you’ve got nothing to hide, what’s the problem?” The problem is that’s not what freedom is about! That’s a surveillance state, under the guise of safety. If you value freedom, then you value privacy. https://t.co/d05kJ2BHhU

A reveal: The most efficient money-laundering mechanism is data brokerage.
Data brokerage also allows companies with minimal reputation to create value from nothingness.

Nigeria is introducing a tax on cash withdrawals & deposits in order to “enlighten” people and get them to use electronic-payments options. But data shows that attempts to reduce cash usage could hurt the economy, especially its poorest. My latest: https://t.co/ErPhbjsFG7

Unpopular opinion: Shadow IT is a signal that existing solutions don't fit the use case, are too much friction, or not widely enough advertised. They are the symptom, not the disease.
Instead of obsessively tracking it, how about performing internal customer interviews instead?

A very frustrating thing about these hearings: some questons are good, and some questions are bad, but very few representatives seem to coordinate their questions with each other or follow up others' lines of inquiry, instead mostly using their five minutes for planned shots.
