Hello again everyone and happy Friday. I wanted to quickly let y’all know that my podcast cohost Jonah and I have released a new episode of The Future is Ow where I go into more depth on the Apple CSAM story I’ve been covering in the newsletter. You can listen to the episode here. Please consider subscribing!
In addition to the Apple news, we dive into a recent widely read ProPublica piece that revealed a previously unknown group of around 1,000 WhatsApp content moderators who have the ability to read some users’ private messages. This story, though still significant, left many commentators claiming WhatsApp had broken encryption. Jonah and I discuss whether that was really the case.
Additionally, I also give my two cents around Texas’ recent abortion bill, which is single-handedly transforming legislation around the US and stripping women of abortion access before many of them even know they are pregnant.
I’ll see y’all around soon for another edition of the newsletter.
