If you are in a photo that has been uploaded to Flickr, IBM may have used your face to train facial recognition technology that could eventually be used to surveil you.

Nearly a million photos were scraped from Flickr to do so.

somehow managed to miss out on one of the most exciting 'hacks' demonstrated during #35c3 : the rental housing syndicate in Germany.

135 solidarity organizations that keep rental #housing #affordable in city centers by maintaining 'deprivatized' and 'unsellable' housing stock. These are collectively owned buildings with provisions against speculation. The organization is also involved in co-financing other similar housing projects.
