The Tech Worker Handbook & the Filter Bubble Transparency Act

The Sunday Show

Nov 14 2021 • 54 mins

There are two segments in this week's show:

First- Ifeoma Ozoma is the Founder and Principal of Earthseed, a consulting firm advising individuals, organizations, and companies on tech accountability, public policy and health misinformation. A tech policy expert, Ifeoma is a co-sponsor of the Silenced No More Act. The legislation, authored by CA State Senator Connie Leyva and recently signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom, allows everyone in California to share information about discrimination or harassment they have faced on the job, even after signing an NDA. Ifeoma led an initiative to provide tech whistleblowers with needed resources called the Tech Worker Handbook, and is now leading a project to scale the protections in the Silenced No More Act to more companies and workers via shareholder activism.

Second- this week, the Filter Bubble Transparency Act was unveiled in the House of Representatives. The proposed legislation would require “require that internet platforms give users the option to engage with a platform without being manipulated by algorithms driven by user-specific data.” To explore the ideas behind the proposed legislation, I spoke to two people: Anil Dash, CEO of Glitch and an entrepreneur and writer; and Eli Pariser, Co-Director of New Public, an activist, an entrepreneur and author of the 2011 bestseller The Filter Bubble.
