Let's face it, most of us have got used to ignoring the fact that our tech has become a sneaky spy selling our every move to the highest bidder. So how do we change that? In this week's episode I talk to Joshua Fairfield, an internationally recognised law and technology scholar / author, who happens to be extremely funny and Davina Bentley, an international awesome comedian who happens to be a lawyer. We talk about the in's and out's of tech and law... but trust me as well as being an incredibly enlightening chat, it's also really entertaining.
Joshua Fairfield is an internationally recognized law and technology scholar, specializing in digital property, electronic contract, big data privacy, and virtual communities. His articles on protecting consumer interests in an age of mass-market consumer contracting regularly appear in top law and law-and-technology journals, and policy pieces on consumer protection and technology have appeared in the New York Times, Forbes, and the Financial Times, among other outlets. Before entering the law, Professor Fairfield was a technology entrepreneur, serving as the director of research and development for language-learning software company Rosetta Stone. His most recent book 'Runaway Technology: Can the law keep up" is available now. You can learn more about him on his website and keep in touch with his latest new on Twitter.
Davina Bentley is one of the most delightfully intelligent comedians on the circuit combining her experience in both neuroscience and law to create a unique style that juxtaposes insightful analytical thought with pop culture and everyday observations. Follow her on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
