Mozilla site collects stories of online surveillance

Resource / Mozilla site collects stories of online surveillance

By Madhumitha Ardhanari / 07 Mar 2019

The New Organs is a project commissioned by Mozilla (the company behind search engine Firefox) to gather, archive and investigate the theories and realities of corporate surveillance.

For instance, one story reads: "I bought a pair of very weird/unique shoes from a thrift store. I did not take a picture or send anything about them over my phone. I put them on my feet and showed my boyfriend in person when he got home from work. A few hours later, he got an instagram ad featuring the exact same shoes."

As well as stories submitted by the public, it offers a reading list. 

Do you have stories to submit? 

What might the implications of this be? What related resources have you seen?
