Christopher Wylie (born 19 June 1989) is a Canadian man who was previously the director of research at Cambridge Analytica. In 2018, he became a whistleblower in the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal.[1]

In 2018, Wylie became a whistleblower, giving The Guardian documents that described the secret workings behind Cambridge Analytica.[2] The documents center around Cambridge Analytica's alleged unauthorized possession of personal private data from some 87 million Facebook user accounts,[3] obtained for the purpose of creating targeted political campaigns for the 2016 US presidential elections. These campaigns were based on psychological and personality profiles mined from the Facebook data.

On March 27, 2018, Wylie gave evidence to the UK's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee which contained further revelations about the practices at Cambridge Analytica and its associated companies.[4]

Wylie's revelations triggered government investigations on both sides of the Atlantic and pushed long-simmering privacy concerns.[5][6]

Life

Wylie was born to parents Kevin Wylie and Joan Carruthers,[1] who were both physicians. He was raised in Victoria, British Columbia.[1] As a child he was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD.[2]

He left school at 16 without a qualification and when asked about his "probable destiny" on his school leavers yearbook page he stated "...just another dissociative smear merchant peddling backroom hackery in its purest Machiavellian form". At 17, he was working for the Canadian opposition leader Michael Ignatieff. He taught himself to code at age 19. At 20, he began studying law at the London School of Economics.

In 2013, he was introduced to SCL Group which would later create Cambridge Analytica.

Personal life

Wylie is self-described as gay[7] and vegan.[8]

In an interview with The Guardian, Wylie stated that Rebekah Mercer "loved the gays, and so did Steve Bannon. He figured if you could get the gays on board, everyone else will follow...(like the) Milo Yiannopoulos thing".[9]

Engineering the Climate: The Ethics of Solar Radiation Management
Engineering the Climate: The Ethics of Solar Radiation Management
Engineering the Climate: The Ethics of Solar Radiation Management discusses the ethical issues associated with deliberately engineering a cooler climate to combat global warming. Climate engineering (also known as geoengineering) has recently experienced a surge of interest given the growing likelihood that the global community will fail to limit the temperature increases associated with greenhouse gases to safe levels. Deliberate manipulation of solar radiation to combat climate change is an exciting and hopeful technical prospect, promising great benefits to those who are in line to suffer most through climate change. At the same time, the prospect of geoengineering creates huge controversy. Taking intentional control of earth’s climate would be an unprecedented step in environmental management, raising a number of difficult ethical questions. One particular form of geoengineering, solar radiation management (SRM), is known to be relatively cheap and capable of bringing down global temperatures very rapidly. However, the complexity of the climate system creates considerable uncertainty about the precise nature of SRM’s effects in different regions. The ethical issues raised by the prospect of SRM are both complex and thorny. They include: 1) the uncertainty of SRM’s effects on precipitation patterns, 2) the challenge of proper global participation in decision-making, 3) the legitimacy of intentionally manipulating the global climate system in the first place, 4) the potential to sidestep the issue of dealing with greenhouse gas emissions, and, 5) the lasting effects on future generations. It has been widely acknowledged that a sustained and scholarly treatment of the ethics of SRM is necessary before it will be possible to make fair and just decisions about whether (or how) to proceed. This book, including essays by 13 experts in the field of ethics of geoengineering, is intended to go some distance towards providing that treatment.

The Disappearance
The Disappearance
"The female of the species vanished on the afternoon of the second Tuesday of February at four minutes and fifty-two seconds past four o'clock, Eastern Standard Time. The event occurred universally at the same instant, without regard to time belts, and was followed by such phenomena as might be expected after happenings of that nature." On a lazy, quiet afternoon, in the blink of an eye, our world shatters into two parallel universes as men vanish from women and women from men. After families and loved ones separate from one another, life continues in very different ways for men and women, boys and girls. An explosion of violence sweeps one world that still operates technologically; social stability and peace in the other are offset by famine and a widespread breakdown in machinery and science. And as we learn from the fascinating parallel stories of a brilliant couple, Bill and Paula Gaunt, the foundations of relationships, love, and sex are scrutinized, tested, and sometimes redefined in both worlds. The radically divergent trajectories of the gendered histories reveal stark truths about the rigidly defined expectations placed on men and women and their sexual relationships and make clear how much society depends on interconnection between the sexes.Written over a half century ago yet brimming with insight and unsettling in its relevance today, The Disappearance is a masterpiece of modern speculative fiction.
