Ferociously Imperfect: Consumer Tracking (with Rob Shavell of Abine)
Show Notes

Putting the evils back in Pandora’s box just doesn’t seem possible - much like reclaiming privacy in today’s datacentric world. This week, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal hosted Rob Shavell, CEO and founder of Abine (rhymes with hey mine) to discuss consumer privacy controls related to online privacy. Just over a decade ago, the World Wide Web consortium (W3C) started the development of a Do Not Track (DNT) standard, that would limit the way in which people could be tracked between websites. In 2018, the project stopped, because it simply did not gain traction. Now, DNT is back in the form of Global Privacy Control (GPC): a new technical standard to help companies meet the CCPA Do Not Sell requirement and similar requirements around the world. GPC is supported by quite a few companies, such as Mozilla, Brave, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the NY Times

Join us as we speak on a variety of topics from the complexities of managing privacy online to the consequences that may arise through enforcement. Rob touches on concepts such as ferociously imperfect laws and controls as well as informed consequential debate. Through these open conversations with privacy professionals and activists, the discussion is unfettered and thus, brings up many elements, such as meetings in Brussels, AI, and being zealous about privacy.
