Fire and Fawning Good questions from Scott Galloway.
First time outside the city in 5 months
Well said Mick.
So, the Privacy Shield is dead. I’ve never been under the illusion that the US or other third countries provide the same protections as the EU. I am a strong advocate for privacy.
But yet. I am also conflicted. There is one issue here that I never see discussed is that as businesses, particularly small businesses move to the cloud and seek out platforms to work with, they will invariably find that the ones they want to work with are not European and that their customer data will not be held in Europe.
I have struggled with this more and more in the last 12 months, particularly in recent months trying to increase efficiency and resilience.
Small businesses are not going to have the time, resources or expertise to deal with this.
My own conclusion is that the EU itself has to legislate that any company operating within the EU must keep EU data on servers within the EU.
And there there is Brexit to come in a few months.
Read that yesterday and today this corner sign caught my eye.
I agree with this. In fact, i would just ban Airbnb from operating completely in Ireland. I may be a little biased though, after a really bad experience with the company last year.
Got half way through “A Very Stable Genius” but had to give up. You just know it’s going to be more of the same all the way to the end. Depressing.
Brilliant, brilliant piece by Tommie Gorman. We did go mad with joy.
Sad to hear Jack “Put em under pressure” has passed. I won’t forget the sheer excitement of Summer 88 in Ireland.
Great letter to An Taoiseach.
“The concerns we have identified in these markets are so wide ranging and self- reinforcing that our existing powers are not sufficient to address them. We need a new, regulatory approach – one that can tackle a range of concerns simultaneously, with powers to act swiftly to address both the sources of market power and its effects, and with a dedicated regulator that can monitor and adjust its interventions in the light of evidence and changing market conditions.”
Will be digging into this.
Reading this makes me wonder about the long term implications for Intel in Ireland.
Passed a camper van yesterday and the thought struck me that the next year will be good for camper van companies. Travel while staying at your own place.
Something very off about Ryanair running radio ads promoting holiday flights while the chief medical officer is continually advising people not to travel.
