Democratizing Information with Alex Gladstein

By The Mission

“Privacy is a human right and I think we need to be proud of it.” As the Chief Strategy Officer of the Human Rights Foundation, Alex Gladstein, has made it his life’s goal to be sure that everyone, regardless of nationality, is treated with dignity and afforded their basic human rights, including privacy. Now, through the power of cryptography, Alex and the HRF has a whole new set of tools at their disposal to reach this goal. In today’s episode, Chad and Alex sit down to discuss how the HRF is using cryptography to help bolster privacy measures throughout the world. They also discuss how the HRF is on a mission to help democratize information through cryptography and the ability to discreetly share information. 2:56 “I believe that certain kinds of technology will always empower people over oppressive governments or corporations.” - Alex Gladstein 4:47 “Privacy is a human right and I think we need to be proud of it.” - Alex Gladstein 17:40- “We want to make sure that cryptographic data can secure our data and money.” - Alex Gladstein Mission Daily and all of our podcasts are created with love by our team at Mission.org We own and operate a network of podcasts, and brand story studio designed to accelerate learning.
