But that alas is the past, and the book as I said is terrific. And it's also good timing, because only yesterday, Al Franken posted on Twitter a link to his first public speech since leaving the Senate. It was given at the Privacy Xchange forum in Lisbon, Portugal, and his talk is on "Privacy, Competition and Russian Election Meddling." Much of it deals with privacy issues that were exploited on Facebook by Cambridge Analytica. Don't expect jokes. It's a serious, thoughtful talk. And with questions at the end, it lasts almost 50 minutes.
He starts at around the 18:30 mark. Even if you don't watch the whole thing, it's worth watching at least some. And to just see him again dealing so thoughtfully and meaningfully on such an important public issue.
