TDH – Snowden’s Legacy

This week on the show, we discuss the net-neutrality comments the FCC received, how a smaller telco hopes to shape the wireless industry in Africa, and how Amazon is going to lock horns with Square. We take a quick glance at Twitter’s aim to better it’s anti-abuse policies, as well as Apple’s diversity report. The main focus is on Wired’s piece on Snowden, how the FCC hopes to crack down on spying, and what is the best protection you can get right now when it comes to securing your online breadcrumbs. Lastly, I look forward to the 100th show, which is coming up next week.
