Why were Women protesting in South Korea today?

Find out why there was the largest ever protest of just Women in South Korea today....

Turns out "spycam porn" is now a thing and it's actually quite a big problem with 1000s of cases reported. I am actually not surprised something like this exists. I am quite surprised how big a problem it is. It sounds like it is growing and with new technology being introduced. Sex crimes are evolving too.

Which companies are failing the most at GDPR compliance



One day to go until the GDPR act comes into effect. I decided to check Twitter for some epic #GDPRfails and here is what I found...
  • People seem to be getting too many emails
  • People did not see this tweet on how to filter GDPR emails
  • People do not understand what spam is (when you sign up for a website and don't read the TOS, it is NOT spam when the website emails you about the change in TOS or Privacy Policy).
  • Many big tech firms do not understand GDPR
Either way I think it is good to increase awareness and discussion about the privacy and security of our data. This list of GDPRfails shows how even the largest tech companies with biggest budgets are failing at protecting your personal data and information.

Bathurst and Lakeshore street sign painting commission

This was a commissioned painting of a street sign for a main Toronto intersection where Bathurst meets Lakeshore. See the steps below for how I created this.


Getting the perspective right is one of the hardest parts of this. Faint pencil lines ensure that I can get this right before I work on the outline.

Once the outline is right, I can start to colour. All of my art is painted using shellac and earth pigments. I do not purchase plastic products unless there is a gun to my head.
 
I had to paint a lot of leaves. Even after showing it to the client, they sent me away to paint more leaves. 

 
Okay, okay I will paint more leaves. 


Worth it in the end as we have a nice painting with leaves almost all the way to edges as requested by client.

I have done several of these hand painted street signs now. Check out some others below:

What is GDPR?



Businesses, large and small, are in the midst of preparing for compliance with the Europeans Union’s new data privacy laws: The General Data Protection Regulation, or the GDPR, which will go into effect on May 25, 2018.

What is it?


It was passed by the European lawmakers to create a harmonized data privacy law across all the EU member states. Its purpose is to:

  • Support privacy as a fundamental human right;
  • Require companies that handle personal data to be accountable for managing that data appropriately; and give individuals rights over how their personal data is processed or otherwise used.

In a nutshell, GDPR defines personal data as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.”

Okay, so what does that mean?


In addition to the kinds of information you might think about – name, address, email address, financial information, contact information, identification numbers, etc., personal data can in some cases be information related to your digital life, like an IP address, geolocation, browsing history, cookies, or other digital identifiers.

It also could mean information about a person, including their physical, mental, social, economic or cultural identities.

In short, if information can be traced back to or related in some way to an identifiable person, it is highly likely to be personal data.

Does it apply to me?


Individuals, companies, or businesses that have a presence in the EU or, if no presence, offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior of, individuals in the EU need to comply with this law. Please consult with your own legal counsel about whether GDPR applies to you and your business.
