Privacy Since Edward Snowden Edward Snowden/El Tiempo

斯诺登事件之后的隐私

伦敦——现在离美国前情报承包商爱德华·斯诺登披露美国家安全局大规模网络监视行动已经整整一年了。他所披露的行为引发了公众愤怒和德国等亲密盟友的强烈指责,颠覆了现实生活中互联网和电信网络多么自由安全的美好假设。斯诺登靠一己之力改变了人们对手机、平板和笔记本电脑的认识,引发公众辩论个人信息保护。但泄密事件并没有带来真正的改革。

可以肯定,美国总统奥巴马在民间社团和科技产业的联手带动下已经采取了某些举措。在1月讲话及随后颁布的总统施政令中,奥巴马命令美国间谍认可“无论国籍或可能居住在哪里,所有人都应该享有尊严和尊重,同时每个人在对其个人信息进行处理时都享有合法的隐私权。”

上述隐私保护要求带来了情报机构阴暗世界里某些前所未有的进步。奥巴马政府在科技公司状告政府披露情报要求细节时做出了妥协,通过和解方案允许透露进一步的报告。照此协议,企业有权公开情报机构索取资料的次数(250到1,000次),具体情况取决于命令类型的解聚程度。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
