Yet another hard lesson learned
There is talk about the possibility of all Danes having to get a new CPR (social security number) because of this.
If you lived in Denmark between 2010 and 2012, it’s almost certain that your personal identification number (CPR number) and health information ended up in the hands of a Chinese company.

Mashable discusses the problems with Tesla's autopilot beta, and how a user's simply "checking a box" is insufficient for ensuring that they truly understand the feature. Maybe the Tesla accident will highlight the lie behind those TOS and EULA checkboxes we check all the time. They are really meaningless.

Some day, your life may depend on the work of a security researcher. Whether it’s a simple malfunction in a piece of computerized medical equipment or a malicious compromise of your networked car, it’s critically important that people working in security can find and fix the problem before the worst happens.

Interesting article on here that states why mass surveillance may be good. I don't exactly agree with the reasoning but what are all of your thoughts?

The thing about mass surveillance is that because of the increase in data making it hard to actually enact on relevant and good data.

It'd be like looking through a security camera at a mall entrance to verify every person was safe - theoretically, a computer will help make this easier, even with false negatives that have to be vetted by someone - but it's not going to be able to do it fast enough.

Or another way to think about it - if you track someone's purchases of everything, everywhere, you still have to sort through every purchase to find if someone's buying the cleaning ingredients that can be re-purposed for dangerous uses - and even then, you'd have to verify every individual combination of, say, anti-freeze, dish soap, a case of beer, and a box of matches. Only to find out it`s because that particular person is going camping.

Not sure we needed a study to confirm this.
 
"Hand over your first born, share all communication with the NSA... oh hell, let me just click 'Agree.'"
Study says participants also agreed to allow data sharing with NSA and employers.
