As I noted in an earlier post, BlackBerry CEO John Chen took part in a fireside chat hosted by Amanda Lang at the Toronto Global Forum to discuss discussing data, privacy, and governance in the era of big tech. At the time I made my earlier post, I wasn't sure if that video would be shared, but luckily, the folks at BlackBerry have now uploaded it to their YouTube channel.

Rather than me digging through and parsing the half-hour conversation for everyone, you can hit play on the video and take it in at your leisure.
