    Hi all,

    Anyone watched The Great Hack? About 20 mins in and decent enough so far.

    Ah it was fine in the end yeah. I knew most of this from following Brexit anyway but they do lay it out clearly for you. Contained some decent nuggets in there, worth a go.

    It's pretty good alright. I didn't trust Brittany Kaiser's motives at the start of the film but by the end, I came around to thinking that she was genuinely remorseful. Then again, documentaries are very selective in what they show you and are very good at presenting whatever version of the story they want to present.

    Not sure how this campaign by Cambridge Analytica fits in with the narrative that it was Russians who influenced the election.
