  • The image on the left is of one of Google’s data centres. <br /> In the first part of this presentation I will be discussing some key topics that emerged at SXSW this year: <br /> The debate around our right to privacy <br /> Marketing security <br /> Encrypted messages and ephemeral communications <br /> Virtual currency <br />
  • Beeple aka Mike Winkelman. <br /> &quot;The biggest thing that internet companies can do to protect their users is to put encryption on every page you visit.” – Snowden <br />
  • A trend that is integral to the issue of data privacy is the emergence of both self-destructing messaging apps (Snapchat) and end-to-end encryption messaging apps (Wickr, Armortext, etc.) <br /> Parents will be motivated to discuss internet safety and privacy with them at an increasingly early age. <br /> Brands are flocking to Snapchat to push short-term messages to a large target audience. <br /> “While Snapchat is frequently described as a social-networking app, its utility is more akin to messaging services like WhatsApp and Japan-based Line. The point is to serve as a medium for private messaging between friends, not to be a diffuse social graph like Facebook or an interest graph like Twitter.” (Cotton Dello, Forbes) <br />
  • Interview with the BBC <br />
  • https://www.ted.com/talks/paul_kemp_robertson_bitcoin_sweat_tide_meet_the_future_of_branded_currency <br />
  • Satoshi Nakamato is the P2P name for the creator(s) of Bitcoin (the system of virtual currency that trades in bitcoins). <br /> Bitcoin is a decentralized, anonymous electronic currency that first came into being in 2009. It&apos;s still not clear how far Bitcoin can go in establising itself in the mainstream economy, but there are quite a few large and small businesses accepting Bitcoin as a means to purchase goods and services. <br /> Why will the value be so high? Because the programme that produces Bitcoin will only create 21 million of them. At the moment 11 million have been discovered. <br />
  • Vodafone Fakka – in Africa where mobile is king, loose change is a real problem, instead of change vendors give ‘fakka’ or mobile credit. <br />
