Recent tech news:

Coronavirus global tracking map from Johns Hopkins

In Coronavirus Fight, China Gives Citizens a Color Code, With Red Flags (NYT, March 1 - by past guest Paul Mozur - April 22, 2019 Techtonic - and Raymond Zhong and Aaron Krolik): "A new system uses software to dictate quarantines — and appears to send personal data to police, in a troubling precedent for automated social control."

Activate This ‘Bracelet of Silence,’ and Alexa Can’t Eavesdrop (NYT by Kashmir Hill, Feb 14, 2020): quotes past guest Scott Urban, as listed above: “New technologies are continually eroding our privacy and anonymity. People are looking for an opt-out, which is what I’m trying to provide.”

Clearview AI, the controversial facial-recognition company partnering with police, says its entire customer list was stolen in a breach (Daily Beast, Feb 26, then Business Insider, March 2)

Swinging the Vote? (The Markup, Feb 26): "Google’s black box algorithm controls which political emails land in your main inbox."

As awesome as those Reflectacles are, and as super cool as it is of Scott to donate them here, it's a solution that, really, is only there for the affluent -- not the people who, say, only have internet access through the Google spy LinkNYC towers.
