Making Things Monday #1
This Making Things Monday is all about the data & trust we put into the organisations we use every day. Inspired by Projects By If talks on Trust & Design which I didn't get tickets too this time round. But who needs tickets when you can read and watch loads of stuff in the comfort of your own home in your trackies.
A selection of random things to help get your juices flowing and get us thinking about something that effects everyone - whether we like it or not.
- The Economist talks about data as the new economy and it's big business for companies.
- Google 'want's' users to understand, but do people really get what is being captured or even how to change their account settings? take a look at what to do.
- What is the role of government in all this? FutureGov discuss what good data protection should be for digital government. Government Digital Service (GDS) have updated their ethical data standards.
- Data and justice in the US
- What were the worst data breaches of 2017?
- Data is creepy 👻
- People are more honest in search, but big brother is watching! Can the data that is collected can tell us truths about who we really are? Data Scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz thinks so. Can data tell a more honest story and be used to effect and understand how we behave. If you want to get super nerdy you can read his NY Times back catalogue very interesting/nerdy indeed!
- Fitness tracking is open with Strava's heat map and some secret military stuff it shows us.
- Has data effected how democracy works? In the US and here in the UK?
- Hiring cars whats the deal with our data...
- Is data good or bad?
Never ending views and opinions must stop or I could do this forever!
