"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.

It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.

Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

Last year, I switched from asking students, “Any questions?” to “What questions do you have for me?” And it’s made a world of difference. It’s got me wondering: what simple shifts in phrasing, wording, or questioning has helped your teaching?

I just thought of a cake in the shape of a Hilbert curve to optimize for the best part of the cake: the edges, then I discovered someone already made it! I'm glad that there are brains out there that think about the same stuff as me.

My talk today at HTW Berlin for World Usability Day 2019 just finished, and the people seemed to like it.

Slides here: naii.io/wud2019 (German)

The Ethical Design Manifesto by @indie / @aral and @laura was an essential part of it since this is my contribution to spreading the word and raising awareness :)

And one attendee literally said it was the highlight of his day.

Super grateful to have experienced that, and yes I was on a little high afterwards *yippieeee*

Back from #bi0911. Apparently there were 13.000 protestors against 250 Nazis. IIRC that means there were around 50% less Nazis and a couple of thousand more protestors compared to last year. #bielefeld

I'm glad we do see more and more talk at conferences centered around ethics in tech! Currently listening to @jorndevreede@twitter.com's talk "Human first digital ethics" at @refreshcon@twitter.com.

Ein Thread: (1)

Als ich die Mittelstufe eines Gymnasiums besuchte gab es da diesen einen Neonazi in meiner Klasse. Das war weitestgehend unproblematisch da ich mich verbal gut gegen seine menschenverachtende Hetze
