S3:E2 - GitHub’s Firing Backlash, Alphabet Workers Union, Mobile Data Security, and WebExtensions API
Here's what @saronyitbarek and I covered this week:
- Apple’s WebExtensions API
- GitHub’s firing of a Jewish worker for using the word Nazi in reference to some of the rioters who attacked the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th.
- Alex Gorowara, Senior Software Engineer at Google, and spokesperson for the Alphabet Workers Union. Alex talked with us about the hundreds of Alphabet workers who have chosen to unionize and their mission.
- Max Zinkus and Tushar Jois, Doctoral Students in Applied Cryptography and Security at Johns Hopkins University, whose recent research found major weaknesses in both iOS and Android security mechanisms.
