"How I wear my Fitbit all the time I mean all the time and it was a Christmas gift that you gave me and that actually stayed in the box for eight months when I took about the boxes it where if you been all my life is wonderful Washington posted a story the other day that said that the day may come if it hasn't already happened where the data. that is gathered via my Fitbit that's the hours that I sleep how much of it is rem sleep how many flights of stairs I walked calories are burned blah blah blah that data could be valuable to someone somewhere or maybe the government and I said whoa yeah now we're not talking about the apple watch which I again if the Fitbit is harvesting data you know the apple people to do doing the same thing and they're been stories about your smart TV is that TV ads your watch and watching you and listening to what you're. so that point is great is cited to to turn to a man who has been nice enough to join us for how many years now well he was just a kid he has the college kid and now he's a doctor is doctor Patrick Crispin joining us tonight by popular demand because we put out the word we're going to be on the radio people that are you gonna have doctor Crispin odd so we do have him on the radio with us tonight and Patrick how are you this evening. how are you okay wait wait wait verily here Patrick okay because we're talking technology when. transaction okay take you to get home. go we can't blame this on. no that was operator error my first mistake how you know what okay guess what they're gonna send you home that's it yeah. real soon. Patrick I know when I sent you a text the other day and I said is this possible I could almost hear you rolling your eyes this is been going out for a long time right. yes I I a and it was your devices your smart devices aren't necessarily listening to use so that what you're saying that Hey I really like leopard print and leopard print you showing up in your in your feet because some computer is listening. you take her computer is predicting you. we are so absolutely tracked in everything we do every place we go on the internet every different like that we had on Facebook everything that we do in the end Instagram or whatever that there are no giant databases about you and people like you and it's eight and it's really relatively easy to target very very very specific subgroups like people who like rockabilly and collect guitars and live in Chicago and wear all black. a group for the socks. right. ruby is actually it is absolutely trivial for this the amount of data that is available about you is just. overwhelming there's actually a documentary on Netflix called the great hack and it talking about Cambridge analytica and all the other things and he once you realize what's going on there yeah this is where we're in a really interesting world were every one of us could be really have the advertising targeted us just a very very pointed way where I can sit there and say I want people in Pasadena possible I need to track just be the the whole thing I think. that really was a a a red herring basically the the United States government is thinking about creating this advanced research projects agency performed Beastie Klay like DARPA entered it was great I mean darker came up with the internet became a unix to kick off the cloudy can't with GPS Seery web conferencing any now I want to do it with health data and looking for more days they are say in our European would normally behavioral signs of someone headed towards a violent explosive act no I can't imagine what bike fit it would tell me now but that I'm headed to some sort of a violent exploits the explosive act that said if you take that data. from an combine it with data from other smart devices like apple watches Amazon echo Google homes along with information from your health care provider slate the radio grasp lake. even can't analysis white has our cause yeah it it's really actually pretty simple to. kind of identify certain behaviors that might be a warning sign I would also say that if you really want to track. what you do is you track for somebody cell phone location and this is where it gets real scary and and for those who are are big fans of the second ma'am and I'm going to send a chill down your spine there's really nothing stopping the government right now tracking how many times you go to a gun right. or how many times at our how many times you go hang out at at certain locations by tracking your cell phone so. this is something that would be like a red flag the wooden makes them look to you first I think I can read it but I don't think there's any any law that prevents them all yeah. everything's which you can do is if you really want to kind of make yourself. not not even on the internet could you can't be hidden on the internet but some things you can do there is a browser plugin that I've been recommended for a long time it's got a really silly name and it's from the Electronic Frontier Foundation a call privacy badger. and privacy about your work to chrome Firefox opera Firefox an android. does is you can solve this whole this whole thing your browser and it sends a trigger to all the websites that you're visiting say do not track me track me I don't want to be tracked. now if the site. ends up finally the network norm reads it what ends up happening is this privacy badger is going to look for tracking cookies and if it sees the same tracking cookies on three more or more different web sites it blocks does how so what it's meant to do is there are cookies that are being put on your computer some computer good like you you know it's it's it's your card to get back into a website some some of tracking for site to site to site so privacy badger says okay you're you're you're working too much information about this for seven o'clock you and absolutely free of charge tracker blocking. outgoing make clicking for on Facebook Google Twitter this is a three just do a Google search for DFS twice privacy badger I really recommend installing that on your browser will just run in the background it just sits there until you start going out on the internet. it just sits there in the background running all the time and again hunter foundation is a not for profit organization at that is very very famous highly respected and you don't have to worry about losing any"
