I don't know if I have to laugh, cry, or throw up!...

Thanks @aral for this discovery

@erosdiscordia @aral
That is, sadly, the cyberpunk dystopia where we're living in!
Capitalist megacorps have a total control upon our lives, and they even don't give a shit about decency...

@bob

this wasn't the org whose conference you commented on earlier as it streamed a while back, was it?

@skynebula

@deejoe @skynebula I don't think so. That was the personal democracy forum.

We ought to call these "faux privacy conferences" in which Big Tech grandstands about how they have new privacy options buried under confusing menus.

@skynebula @bob @deejoe I feel like part of a scouts team that just found a massive rallying of horde troops

@deejoe @skynebula Also friggin Palantir, wtf? They're about as privacy invading as it gets outside of letter agencies.

@skynebula @aral "Hello, this is the Future of Democracy Forum. Our members include Hitler, Trump, Stalin..."

@skynebula
It's like an all inclusive list of those trying to sell your data...
@aral

@skynebula @aral

Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Adobe, Palantir, Uber, Verizon, 23andMe, Criteo, in unison: "The future of privacy is that there won't be any." End of forum.

@skynebula @aral

> Palantir

So it's a forum about how privacy has no future, I guess? 💔
