A fun thing that the Ring app does after you've set up your privacy invading doorbell is send push notifications whenever someone living nearby thinks they've seen some sort of crime, so I just got a notification that a bomb went off in Oakland (a bomb did not go off in Oakland)

The first thing I thought was 😱, then 😏, now I think 🤪. You have a dodgy product being sold to cops in the US. Just say no to profiling using dodgy facial surveillance. Especially when the founders seem to be very careful about their own privacy. Great article. I'm now at 😱

great recap of last evening's Amazon Ring in panel discussion. & pointing out that safety doesn't necessarily increase with surveillance...and may in fact be seriously undermined.
