Pinboard founder Maciej Cegłowski has posted the transcript of his interesting remarks on surveillance and the state of the moral economy of tech. It’s worth a read if you’re in the business. And even more so if you’re a customer. “We started out collecting this information by accident, as part of our project to automate everything, but soon realized that it had economic value. We could use it to make the process self-funding. And so mechanized surveillance has become the economic basis of the modern tech industry.”
