Big tech has lost the confidence of consumers but seems to be awakening to what a problem that is.

It Should. 1 / 1 Back to Gallery It’s only April and 2019 is already shaping up to be a banner year for the lack of data privacy. Not a day goes by where our mortgage information, our passwords, and even our old Hotmail emails aren’t wrapped up in some sort of security failure that flouts our digital privacy. The cynic would suggest this is the … [Read more...] about Does Customer Data Privacy Actually Matter? It Should.
Last year, I met someone who had previously worked for a big tech firm in its “free speech” unit. What had happened to make him come and slum it among us mortals in the (badly paid) policy world? Answer: the unit had been shut down. It’s in this context that you should see the milquetoast response of the tech giants to the government’s “online harms” white paper published on Monday which the Open Rights Group has called “state regulation of the speech of millions of British citizens”. It’s the very same reason that Mark Zuckerberg wrote an article in favour of regulation in The Washington Post last month. It’s not so much evidence of the famed startup’s recent decision to “pivot to privacy”, but the logical endpoint of years of triangulation. For the first amendment advocates of buccaneering Silicon Valley, times have changed. A nudge here, a concession there, and now a full volte-face. Move fast and break … [Read more...] about Facebook and the tech giants are welcoming government regulation – that’s panic signal for all of us

The layoff of 55 people last week at Minneapolis-based Code42, which is trying to transform itself to a broader IT security provider at the same time it accelerates growth, shouldn’t diminish the company as a potent player in Minnesota’s growing software industry. Nor should it tarnish our local software industry. We’re not Silicon Valley, Austin, Texas, or Boston when it comes to software startups and funding. We are a promising second fiddle. And, if the strategy of Code42’s leadership works, the now 550-employee company could become a much larger outfit. CEO Joe Payne said in an interview last week that Code42’s board still intends to be a publicly held company. However, to capture the price valuation sought by its venture-capitalist owners, Code42 must grow by 25 percent and achieve revenue around $150 million. Code42 last year had sales of $117 million, declining from a multiyear pace of 25 percent annual growth, to 17 percent in 2018. Payne decided … [Read more...] about Code42’s retrenchment last week is part its plan for long-term growth
