Techdirt Podcast Episode 188: Government, Activism & Silicon Valley

from the panel-discussion dept

In late September, Mike joined a panel at the Lincoln Network’s Reboot conference to tackle the question “will rising activism limit government?s access to Silicon Valley?” along with Trae Stephens, Pablo E. Carrillo, with moderator Katie McAuliffe. For this week’s episode, we’ve got the full audio from that panel plus an additional introduction from Mike with some thoughts after the fact. Enjoy!

That last bit

Towards the end where you said that employees of a company working on a project desire the knowledge of how that project will be used…

Wow, he pushed back against a strawman. Who put forth the argument that the whole company would need knowledge of that program? Sure, some in the company might object without full knowledge of it, but if they aren’t working on it, I don’t see how they would need full knowledge of the project? And they’re free to object to how they perceive the project might be used?
