Notes from the Electronic Cottage 8/13/20: Electronic Cottage in Washington?

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

We doubt that politicians and officials in Washington actually listen the Electronic Cottage but we are very happy to see that issues that we’ve featured on the program over the past few months – for example, smart phones disgorging a person’s location data; facial recognition technology – seem to be getting increased attention in parts of the nation’s capital. Listen for some examples.

Here are some of the links mentioned in today’s program:
