      It’s no secret that data science is a good career path. The jobs are in demand, the salaries are compelling, and the work is interesting. So how does someone break in?

      In particular, I’m interested in how an experienced IT professional can move into data science. What advice would you give to someone with, say, five years of computing experience, who wants to break into the field? Tell me about the skills required, where you’d tell your friend to go to acquire them, and how to get a job without a specialized degree. What would make you say, “I want to hire this person, even if the individual lacks the relevant schooling”?

      Many of you know that I’m working on a crowdfunding campaign. I’ve just launched it and I want to share it with you.

      The idea is to raise money for a documentary about privacy, called: Privacy Inequality: The Documentary. I’ll use that money to interview experts around the world, and make it in a way so that we can spread awareness around a topic very few people talk about: the inequalities that come and will come with our current privacy standards.

      I hope you like it. Here’s the link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/privacy-inequality-the-documentary/x/19604796#/

      This is super hard to raise money for, especially when your goal is to release a free documentary, so any help will be welcomed. (Sharing it is enough, I'm not asking you money.)

      If you have any suggestions please share them :)

      PS if you want I can share the experience of launching a crowdfunding campaign with you as soon as it finishes

      I've been talking about the challenges we're facing with privacy with some friends and members of Tildes. And we've concluded that the first thing we need, in order to change how people perceive privacy, is to define exactly what's the problem we're facing, and what privacy needs to be.
      I'm writing a thoughtful article about this and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
      Here some questions that might be helpful to start a conversation:

      • What do we do about privacy?
      • What’s at stake here?
      • What's the real problem?
      • What are we missing?
      • What should privacy be? What's a proper definition of privacy?

      (I'm sharing my own article here. I've found very helpful the comments I get when I share my writing, and it's a great way to start a conversation. If you don't like this just let me know.)

      I wrote an article about brain-computer interfaces and the problem of having our thoughts in the open.

      Throughout the article I explain how governments and corporations have always tried to understand and manipulate the human mind, and how far they've gotten with just primitive tools and techniques.

      Then I explain why it’s critical that we build the foundation of privacy as a structure of basic human rights so we can build things on top of that.

      The truth is that brain interfaces are coming faster than we think and we need to build a set of rules and standards that give us ownership over our data.

      I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. What do you think is the actual problem here? What should we focus on?
