How One Woman Hid Her Pregnancy From Big Data

by gregg
For the past nine months, Janet Vertesi, assistant professor of sociology at Princeton University, tried to hide from the Internet the fact that she's pregnant — and it wasn't easy.

Elle veut cacher sa grossesse sur Internet pour ne pas être tracée, elle devient suspecte | Slate.fr

by gregg & 1 other
En essayant de cacher sa grossesse à Internet, Janet Vertesi a ainsi été «identifiée comme quelqu'un de probalement engagé dans des activités criminelles». Ce qui lui fait dire que le simple fait de sortir des sentiers battus du web, des rails installés par la bande des Gafa (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple), est en soi devenu suspect. Et est synonyme, pour reprendre ses termes, de comportement immoral voire criminel.

Heartbleed Bug

by sbrothier & 1 other (via)
The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

What They Know - WSJ

by gregg & 1 other
Marketers are spying on Internet users -- observing and remembering people's clicks, and building and selling detailed dossiers of their activities and interests. The Wall Street Journal's What They Know series documents the new, cutting-edge uses of this Internet-tracking technology. The Journal analyzed the tracking files installed on people's computers by the 50 most popular U.S. websites, plus WSJ.com. The Journal also built an "exposure index" -- to determine the degree to which each site exposes visitors to monitoring -- by studying the tracking technologies they install and the privacy policies that guide their use.

The Return Of The Anonymous Internet

by sbrothier
It’s not fair to judge a new social network (or app) right after it launches; it’s like dismissing a restaurant for its irritating clientele on opening night, when the only people eating are the owner’s friends and the press. But I don’t think it’s the first-night crowd that makes Secret, a new semi-anonymous confession app, an utterly paralyzing nightmare. It’s something deeper: It’s that the app shows us, for the first time, what anonymity looks and feels like on a post-Facebook internet.

Comment Contourner La Censure Sur Internet

by sbrothier
Parce que nous croyons profondément que la censure de l'Internet est non seulement contraire au principe même de l'Internet, à savoir de permettre à ses utilisateurs de communiquer les informations qu'ils désirent aux interlocuteurs qu'ils choisissent, mais aussi contraire au droit à la liberté d'opinion et d'expression, [...] qui implique le droit de ne pas être inquiété pour ses opinions et celui de chercher, de recevoir et de répandre, sans considérations de frontières, les informations et les idées par quelque moyen d'expression que ce soit (DUDH, Article 19), nous vous proposons "Comment contourner la censure sur Internet".

BMJ Group blogs: BMJ Web Development Blog » Blog Archive » Lightbeam for Firefox: find out who’s tracking you online

by sbrothier (via)
As the internet continues to evolve, issues surrounding privacy remain a common cause for concern. There is growing anxiety among internet users of how their online activities are tracked for commercial purposes. The business model behind this is generally to aggregate a large number of users in order to sell that audience’s aggregate attention, usually in the form of advertising.  After all, “If you’re not paying for it, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold.”

How to Protect Yourself Online | FCC.gov

The Internet and the information it connects to is a resource that many have come to depend upon. Facts that once might have taken several days to locate in a research library can now be obtained instantaneously using your personal computer or even a handheld wireless device. Individuals can publish to a world wide audience, mix up previously existing content to form new creations, or act as curators, sharing with friends the best new content found on the Internet. Because almost anyone with a computer or wireless device can connect to the Internet, however, some bad actors have found ways to use it to cause harm. Several US Government agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and non-profit organizations have joined in an effort to provide consumers useful, easy-to-understand information on Internet safety that can be found at www.onguardonline.gov/. This guide summarizes some of this valuable information.

Do Not Track

by sbrothier
Two years ago, we asked a panel of experts and policymakers whether Congress needed to legislate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) online privacy mechanism. Consensus eluded that diverse panel, but they did agree that advertisers, browser makers, and standards bodies could make significant progress on their own in developing such a tool. In the time since the last panel convened, several major private sector efforts have since explored implementing a DNT mechanism, such as an opt-out cookie or an HTTP header field. Some Web browser companies have laid plans to code a DNT setting and some have implemented it. Furthermore, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), a major Internet standards setting body, has been working with stakeholders in an effort to broker an agreement on how to implement a Do Not Track mechanism. W3C held a major meeting in early May -- some say a last-chance meeting -- to attempt once again to reach a consensus. The Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee will bring together major players from that W3C working group along with its co-Chair, Peter Swire, to debate and assess whether Do Not Track is necessary, feasible, likely, and/or wise. Our expert panel will also debate the potential technical implementation of DNT, the legislative and regulatory options for DNT, the potential pitfalls to ecommerce, as well as what "tracking" means and whether DNT is a job for Congress, code, or corporations.

Eli Pariser nous met en garde contre "les bulles de filtres" en ligne. | Video on TED.com

by sbrothier
Alors que les compagnies internet s'efforcent d'ajuster leurs services à nos goûts personnels (y compris l'actualité et les résultats de recherche), une dangereuse conséquence, involontaire, émerge : nous nous retrouvons piégés dans une "bulle de filtres" et ne nous trouvons pas exposés à l'information qui pourrait remettre en question ou élargir notre perception du monde. Eli Pariser argumente avec force qu'au final cela s'avérera mauvais pour nous et pour la démocratie.
