“ By not caring about privacy, it’s harming our collective identity.”
Netflix’s The Great Hack tells the behind the scenes story of Cambridge Analytica, the company responsible for collecting information on over 85 million American voters through Facebook to assist the 2016 Trump campaign.
It is a dark story, but The Webby Podcast is joined by one of the story’s main subjects. David Carroll is an Associate Professor of Media Design at Parsons School of Design, and a data privacy advocate. His freedom of information request with a network of privacy activist led to the exposure of Cambridge Analytica’s egregious actions and downfall.
