Do you know how your data is being used? Are you aware of the various ways your behaviour is shaped by the services and apps you use every day? Our guest today from the Tactical Technology Collective takes you the current state of play around the ways people and companies relate to technology. Today’s speaker, Cade, takes you through the organisation’s work on the Data Detox, a toolkit that helps people to become more aware of their data selves and improve the quality of their digitised lives.
