How to reimagine data ownership & human-centered web? (with Gal Ringel, Mine)
July 2, 2020
In this episode, we connect the dots with open and user-driven data ownership.
From social networks to services and platforms, there are numerous ways of how users give away their data and information. Though Cambridge Analytica and similar cases don’t demonstrate the whole tendency of today’s web (let’s be positive), at some point people started to turn from data owners to data givers/resources for platforms and organizations. How can we reimagine this status-quo both for users and organizations, meeting local and global policies? How can we make it flexible, convenient and user-friendly, so people could use the web without fears and “digital citizen guidebooks”?
Today’s conversation with Gal Ringel from Mine, that helps to discover what the internet knows about you and control your digital footprint. In particular, it allows you to decide where your data should or shouldn’t be. Gal believes that security on the web is a task and responsibility for technologists first, who should create safe, convenient and user-friendly web-ecosystem, not just teach people how to be digital citizens who aware of fake news, security issues and just deal with that.
