Tech Talk: Social Media at the Border & LGBT Tech

Written by Brian Wesolowski

CDT’s Tech Talk is a podcast where we dish on tech and Internet policy, while also explaining what these policies mean to our daily lives. You can find Tech Talk on SoundCloud and on iTunes.

After a little summer break, we’ve got a great welcome back to work episode for you. We talk about a controversial proposal from the US Customs and Border Protection that would ask visitors to the US to voluntarily share information about their social media accounts. CDT superstars Michelle De Mooy and Rita Cant address the issues with the proposal from both a privacy and free expression perspective.

We also welcome the co-founder of the LGBT Technology Partnership and Institute, Christopher Wood. He talks about the tremendous work his nonprofit is doing to empower and protect at-risk members of the LGBT community through tech.

Take a listen and feel free to hit me up on Twitter with any comments or suggestions for topics or guests.
