A recurring theme of Thursday Throwback is “every changes but stays the same.” This week we pick up on two themes; online privacy and digital identity.
Firstly to privacy with the reflection in 2013 about the aggregation of personal information. We now know much more with the recent news that Facebook (oops Meta) has been leveraging their understanding of users to manipulate displayed content to maximise a users reactions. It is interesting to reflect on how the landscape has changed in the past eight years.
Moving long with Matt’s touch on the Australian identity card. Is the Australian Government (Liberal Party) a precursor of its introduction? Does the ready acceptance of Services apps with vaccination status ease the acceptance of an identity card?
Time will tell. The Thursday Throwback that generated these thoughts can be read here.
