Leading discussions about the global rules to regulate digital privacy and surveillance is a somewhat unusual role for a developing country to play. But Brazil had been doing just that for over a decade. Edward Snowden’s bombshell in 2014 detailing the US National Security Agency’s digital surveillance activities changed all that.

WHAT IS DIMED OUT? Dimed Out is a hodge-podge Podcast hosted, produced and distributed by me, Mal Foster. The show was born during the lockdown that followed the Corona Virus outbreak of 2020. It started as an excuse for me to learn more about the things that interested me, such as cinema, music and history. But it has since become a reason to dig deep into things I know next to nothing about. It’s also given me an opportunity to have honest, below the surface conversations with friends, loved ones and relative strangers. Giving other people a platform to talk about a variety of things from racial division and spirituality to off the grid liv...

For better or for worse, we tell the stories of entrepreneurs as one of the mythical hero's journey: that's there's a call, a test, a destination...

In this series, we'll be telling the story of the Softbank Vision Fund, the $100bn technology venture capital fund that was supposed to revolutionise the world and bring forward a glorious techno-future. The Vision Fund that now looks like it's inflated a massive, unsustainable bubble in tech companies (and companies that pretend to be tech companies). First - the story of Softbank, pre-Vision Fund, and its visionary founder, Masoyoshi Son, who made both the best and worst investments in living memory.
