I would like to open up the discussion about the Amazon cameras and facial recognition. Awareness needs to be raised and this needs to stop.
I host a monthly webinar on cyber security and could change the focus a bit to discuss this whole "CamAzon" disaster. https://www.meetup.com/Boston-Business-and-Tech-Meetup/events/kdfkkqyzlbbc/ - 1,721 members
Let me know if you are interested in helping me host this on the 20th If interested please sign up for the group and I will make you an admin so we can work on a draft invite together.

@mlncn @cstanhope @GuerillaOntologist I just tested and a link is impossible to paste at the end of a message. Sorry for that but would love to know if anyone else has this issue when pasting a link that you want at the end or in the middle of a message.
