Today on your show we talk about “CV19 – CV1984 Revisited – one year later”. In the show last may 2020 we asked the question; Will Covid-19 spell the end of our long-cherished privacy ideals and give way to widespread technology-fueled state surveillance, censorship and an attack on our human rights? The reaction to CV19 was still new to the population of the world. In this show we are revisiting this question against the ideas posited by our guest. This is part 1 (revisit) of a 2-part show (the year ahead).
