Uge 40

Hver tredje uge lander der en virkelig god email i min inbox, denne uge indeholdt den f.eks. følgende sætning:

Her på redaktionen synes vi ikke, at vores rolle som feministisk medie er at bidrage til debatten med mudderkastning og personangreb.  Vores mål er, at give dig, læseren, mulighed for at danne din egen holdning ud fra et nuanceret perspektiv. Det er ikke nemt, og man skal tit trække vejret og trække på de store perspektiver, men det er dét feminisme kan og skal.

I Deadline den 29. september 2019 interviewede Lotte Folke den amerikanske professor Shoshana Zuboff om hvordan vi alle sammen er blevet en slags råstoffer for dataudvinding for techgiganterne. Zuboff er virkelig god til at forklare det: Se interview med forfatteren til “Overvågningskapitalismens tidsalder”. Indslaget starter 6:44 minutter inde.

For to-tre uger siden holdt jeg op med at bruge Instagram (slettede appen på telefonen), og forleden deaktiverede jeg så mine konti. Det føles godt.
Hvis du er en af dem der siger “Jeg har jo intet at skjule”, når jeg begynder at tale om at blive overvåget, tracket og blive dænget til med målrettede reklamer, så prøv at læse denne tråd:

“Tracking? So what? I have nothing to hide. What’s all the fuzz?” I hear it almost every day in conversations about privacy. It’s not about having something to hide. It’s about protecting your private, personal data—data that belongs to you, and is nobody else’s business.


Imagine you’re working in front of a camera recording your every move. Of course you have nothing to hide, but would it make you comfortable? Imagine your health insurance knowing how often you exercise. Or your bank knowing how you spend money to adjust mortgage rates.

Or your manager discovering that you are looking for another job before you’ve found one. Or your phone number landing in call centers without your consent. Or your partner discovering that you are planning to propose from Instagram ads.

As @SarahJamieLewis said, “lost in the debate about privacy are the very real day-to-day battles that we all face.” We don’t have much to hide. But privacy is about having control of what you share without information about you landing in places you haven’t given consent to.
