About Keith Farnan
Liberty. Privacy. Comedy. Irish comedian Keith Farnan’s show combines all of these elements before the first two disappear in his brand new hour, Anonymous. Every day, we find out that more of our personal data has either been given away, acquired in the interest or national security or sold to the highest bidder, and yet we keep buying gadgets that are happy to share our data with everyone like some blisse-out data hippy. But what’s the harm if some of our details end up on a database? Who cares if our emails and amazon wishlists end up on the desk of the NSA? And surely algorithms analysing words and phrases from our Facebook updates in an effort to profile us into a certain demographic is a good and useful thing, right? Maybe the future isn’t as bad as 1984; maybe this is the future where we get stuff for free in exchange for our personal data. But what about the next generation? Have we sold their privacy in exchange for free wi-fi?
