[I’m delighted to welcome Lilian Radovac back for another excellent piece on the <a href=“https://boingboing.net/2018/08/02/torontos-aural-panic-why-we.html”>digital surveillance shenanigans in Canada</a>, which aren’t always as showy as their stateside counterparts, but are every bit as worrying. In this piece, Radovac reveals the buried plan for a finance-sector managed, all-surveilling National ID card buried in the latest massive wedge of largely unread documents from Google spin-out Sidewalk Labs (<a href=“https://boingboing.net/tag/sidewalk-labs”>previously</a>) that is building a controversial, privatised city-within-a-city in Toronto -Cory]
In Sidewalk Toronto news, Sidewalk Labs has finally released its Master Innovation and Development Plan Digital Innovation Appendix. As with the 1,524 page MIDP before it, there's a lot to read in the DIA but a few excerpts already stand out.
