If it doesn’t feel right, maybe it’s not. Do the right thing, not the easy thing. We always have the right to choose, so ask questions and resist being made to feel ‘incompetent’. Join Shawn, Mark and Anastasia Dedyukhina from Consciously Digital as they share stories on digital privacy, attention and switching.
Welcome back to a new Anecdotally Speaking episode.

This story starts at 23:04
‘Mobile world congress’ mid pandemic
Passport digitally uploaded – she said no – ultimatum (felt wrong)
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation applies to the EU – the strongest privacy and security law in the world)
Attended online instead
Took action – MW Fined EU 200,000 for breach of GDPR
Anastasia got lots of media attention
Accidental privacy advocate – esp. role of AI in decision making
e.g. likelihood of criminal record or mortgage default risk
Calling for social discussion and input
Anastasia felt disrespected, belittled
Refusal to attend was a good turning point in the story
Standing up for values (and legal rights)
Should you just accept the rules if the downside seems too high?
Asking questions does not imply ‘incompetence’
