In @thebafflermag: My recovered history of the EFF, America’s oldest and most influential internet business lobby—an organization that has played a pivotal role in shaping the commercial internet as we know it.

Notice how EFF went AWOL during the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal? "Over the past years, EFF has taken millions in funds from Google and Facebook...Hell, Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s foundation gave EFF at least $1.2 million."

Cambridge Analytica Con: "with Robert Meuller’s Russia investigation dragging on and producing no smoking gun pointing to definitive collusion, it seems that Cambridge Analytica has been upgraded to Class A supervillain."

The bigger issue with the Cambridge Analytica freakout: it’s not just anti-historical, it’s also profoundly anti-political.
The keepers of conventional wisdom all insist in one way or another that Trump won because something novel and unique had happened. But perhaps the most remarkable thing about Cambridge Analytica is how unremarkable it is.

The fact that Google helps the military build more efficient systems of surveillance and death shouldn't be surprising, especially not to Google employees.

Google has spent the last 15 years selling tech to military and intelligence agencies.

Kinda funny that Google employees *just now* got upset at their company's drone work for the Pentagon. Google's been selling tech to the military for nearly two decades.
Reminder: Google has long worked with military contractors and predictive policing companies.

Thanks to Books Inc in Mountain View for hosting Surveillance Valley last night. And thanks to everyone who came to hear the talk and bought books. Books can't be written and journalism can't be done without your support!


The West Coast leg of the Surveillance Valley book tour is over. Next up: a blowout end-of-tour reading in New York City — in DUMBO, Brooklyn to be exact.

Be there.

Our government spends hundreds of millions of dollars on internet-based influence ops every year: the State Department, USAID, BBG, Air Force and Pentagon's US Strategic Command

In 1969, MIT students were convinced that the ARPANET — the network that became the internet — was a CIA counterinsurgency project aimed at destroying leftwing movements.


Thanks to @Powells for hosting Surveillance Valley. Next up: Seattle’s @THSEA.

Tonight: @THSEA in Seattle at 7:30 pm. Talking about Surveillance Valley and the counterinsurgency origins of the internet.
