Happy Birthday !

20y ago, the CIA help bootstrap a company that became an empire, turning profiling of online activities into a widespread practice and mass-surveillance into a "cool" business-model!

@FuckOffGoogle The story in Medium is about one year old. Good investigative journalism. Here is the first version:
Mind you, the BBC was at the Highlands Forum, Disney, the New York Times and many others.

It doesn't matter that it's a year old. It matters that people are educated about it. While in social media time a year is ancient, not long ago it would have been still considered relevant (and it is).

You are right. Maybe we should even post this more regularly, because of the seriousness. But shouldn't the investigative journalist get the credits?
