With Patrick in Barcelona to cover MWC, the CanCon podcast returns with a special guest star to discuss Canadian tech and tech from a Canadian perspective: The Disruptors co-host Bruce Croxon!
This week, we begin with a U.S. tech story with global implications: Apple’s fight for the security of its platform and the privacy of its users. We then transition to discuss current expectations of privacy and harassment online following recent landmark legal cases in Canada before closing on the privileged activities of one major tech startup.
Tune in as the CanCon podcast team – Erin Bury, Managing Director of 88 Creative (and former BetaKit Managing Editor), and Rob Kenedi, TWG’s Entrepreneur in Residence and host of the amazing #smallrooms podcast – asks the question: do you have an expectation of privacy on your consumer tech, or do you already assume the government is looking at your snaps? Post a comment below with the answer, or better yet, rate CanCon 5-stars on iTunes and post your answer there.
