Cartoon: Data Privacy Day
A cartoon for Data Privacy Day. In the US, it’s now a week; in the EU, it’s still called Data Privacy Day. I think the cartoon is funnier as a Data Privacy Day cartoon. I also have a cartoon for last year.

Recently, I posted the full text of my […]
Cartoon: Implantable Devices and Privacy
This cartoon is about implantable devices and privacy. Increasingly devices require subscriptions, and there is tremendous lock in, as the devices can only work with a particular company’s services.
