Tech Talk: Good intentions, bad policy?

2016-04-20 CDT Tech Talk LONG logo

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 iTunes, and Google Play.

Members of Congress are again working to tackle online sex trafficking, but the current proposals pose a serious threat to broader online speech. Could this be a case where good intentions to address a serious issue create a policy that will do more harm than good? In the first segment of this episode, CDT Free Expression Director Emma Llanso shares her thoughts.

After that, we talk with University of Washington graduate student Jared Moore who has created a multimedia art installation that is aimed helping people be more aware of some of the ever present privacy risks in our connected world – and of course, makes everyone just a bit uncomfortable.
