“The Open Web Fellows program — a collaboration between Ford Foundation and Mozilla – is an international leadership initiative that brings together technology talent and civil society organizations to advance and protect the open Web. Specifically, the goals of the Open Web Fellows programs are to:
- Increase public awareness and understanding of Internet policy issues
- Support career paths in the Internet policy and advocacy sector
- Celebrate and support the vibrant network of Internet advocacy organizations
…Broadly speaking, we are looking for makers – those who see a problem in the world and can solve it through technology or media. The right candidate may bring specialties in design, development, storytelling, research and policy analysis, and should be comfortable performing as a technologist, a tinkerer, and a curious contributor to the fellowship program. You do not need to have previous experience with Internet advocacy, policy or activism.”

In this new article for O’Reilly, IoT Privacy Forum Founder Dr Gilad Rosner discusses how the IoT amplifies the problems of Notice & Choice and Consent. Academics and experts have long been aware of their failure as privacy protection strategies, and some have called for them to be eliminated in favor of a controversial policy: letting businesses choose which data uses are and are not appropriate. The article examines the pros and cons of this approach with regard to connected devices.
