This is Behind the Blog, where we share our behind-the-scenes thoughts about how a few of our top stories of the week came together. This week, Joseph talks about why he decided to focus on the person behind a surveillance company; Jason writes about how the Electronic Reuse Conference "unlocked an entire new world" for him; and Emanuel explains why we did not watermark an AI-generated selfie of the infamous Tank Man.
JOSEPH: No Behind the Blog from Sam this week because she is out today, but check out this piece of hers on horny chatbots. This week I’ve been doing mostly behind the scenes administrative work and an article I plan to publish on Monday. That one is about TikTok and, I’m not going to lie, it makes me really, really mad. I will absolutely be talking more about that in next week’s Behind the Blog.
