The Scottish Independence Podcast 66 – Alistair Davidson

7GAbpwBqFor the 66th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke with Alistair Davidson.

Alistair runs a small think tank called the Centre for Technology and Society and will be writing the digital rights part of the Reid Foundation‘s Common Weal project.

He also blogs here.

We spoke about the use of social media in the campaign so far but I suppose the juicier parts of the interview were those explaining what Snowden really means, as although Glenn Greenwald defended himself brilliantly in that famous interview, we didn’t actually get any nearer to what was going on.

We also discussed how an Independent Scotland could make itself safer in terms of digital security and also how it could do better for itself in the digital industry.

Hope you enjoy…
