James Ball: Good intentions gone bad

How the design of the open internet led to the rise of the cookie.

When

27. September.

Time: 13:00 - 13:30


What

FREE AND OPEN FOR ALL TO ATTEND

Using reporting from his recent book The System: Who Owns The Internet And How It Owns Us, investigative journalist James Ball explains how choices made in the very design of the early internet led to the rise of private tracking through our browsers and our cookies – despite being intended to do the opposite. Having charted the rise of the cookie, Ball will then set out how it might be replaced.
