Connections: Discussing data storage and ownership now and in the future

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

How do your store your data? Hard drives? The cloud? A local inventor says a device he created is indestructible and will make your data available in perpetuity. It’s called Totenpass, and it’s constructed from solid gold. Inventor Bruce Ha says not only can the device withstand fire and other natural elements, it also eliminates future dependence on the internet or the cloud when it comes to saving precious digital files. Ha has concerns about who owns content when it’s uploaded to the cloud or to sites like Facebook or Twitter. How can you protect your own information?

This hour, we discuss data storage and ownership with our guests:

  • Bruce Ha, inventor, entrepreneur, creator of Totenpass, and founder and CEO of Stamper Technology, Inc.
  • Scott Malouf, attorney whose practice focuses on the intersection of social media and the law
