Facebook wants your face

quote [ Facebook may soon ask you to "upload a photo of yourself that clearly shows your face," to prove you're not a bot. The company is using a new kind of captcha to verify whether a user is a real person. According to a screenshot of the identity test shared on Twitter on Tuesday and verified by Facebook, the prompt says: ?Please upload a photo of yourself that clearly shows your face. We?ll check it and then permanently delete it from our servers.? ]

They've been playing the long con, hiding their intent in plain sight in their name.

Police can legally use 23andMe, other ancestry tools to obtain your DNA

quote [ WJAX reports companies such as 23andMe and Ancestry would be willing to give police access to your DNA if they have a warrant.

Even more, police could also obtain DNA from a family member to make a "familial match. ]

While this is definitely worrisome to me, i find the healthcare side of it more horrifying. I'm waiting for the first case of an insurance company getting their hands on these records and denying a medical claim, stating the condition was known to the person and they didn't seek treatment.

'Our minds can be hijacked': the tech insiders who fear a smartphone dystopia

quote [ The Google, Apple and Facebook workers who helped make technology so addictive are disconnecting themselves from the internet. Paul Lewis reports on the Silicon Valley refuseniks who worry the race for human attention has created a world of perpetual distraction that could ultimately end in disaster ]

Basically, the people who aren't sociopaths are realizing they opened Pandora's box and are thinking that maybe giving an obscene amount of control over the population to a handful of people might be a bad idea.

Facebook?s war on free will

quote [ Though Facebook will occasionally talk about the transparency of governments and corporations, what it really wants to advance is the transparency of individuals ? or what it has called, at various moments, ?radical transparency? or ?ultimate transparency?. The theory holds that the sunshine of sharing our intimate details will disinfect the moral mess of our lives. With the looming threat that our embarrassing information will be broadcast, we?ll behave better. ]

Interesting. I think I understood most of this. It doesn't really matter if a mouse in a maze has free will if the maze is constantly redesigning itself to guide the mouse where the maze's designers want it to be.

Activist Found Guilty of Terror-Related Crime for Refusing to Disclose Passwords to U.K. Police

quote [ Rabbani said in a statement after the verdict that the judgment highlighted the ?absurdity of the Schedule 7 law? and called for it to be reformed. ?If privacy and confidentiality are crimes, then the law stands condemned,? he said. ?They accept that at no point was I under suspicion, and that ultimately this was a matter of having been profiled at a port. ]

OK I need help here how the Fuck...No 5th amendment in Brittan?

Putin: "Whoever leads in Artificial Intelligence will rule the world"

quote [ "AI is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind," said Putin. "It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world." Although it's thought that AI will help boost countries' economies in a number of areas, from heavy industry to medical research, AI technology will also be useful in warfare. AI can be used to develop cyber weapons, and control autonomous tools like drone swarms ? fleets of low-cost quadcopters with a shared 'brain' that can be used for surveillance as well as attacking opponents. "When one party's drones are destroyed by drones of another, it will have no other choice but to surrender." ]

Putin was addressing students on Knowledge Day.

It's Now Illegal To Text While Crossing The Street In Honolulu

quote [ Laws that ban tapping on a phone while driving have become common, but in Hawaii, a new escalation targets pedestrians. ]

Old news, but was just informed of this new law. I can't wrap my head around how absurd this feels. We're gonna control when and where people look.

Justice demands 1.3M IP addresses related to Trump resistance site

quote [ ?In essence, the Search Warrant not only aims to identify the political dissidents of the current administration, but attempts to identify and understand what content each of these dissidents viewed on the website,? the company?s general counsel, Chris Ghazarian, said in a legal argument opposing the request.

The warrant, dated July 12, says that authorities will seize any information constituting violations of D.C. code governing riots that involve individuals connected to the protests on Inauguration Day.

More than 200 people were indicted on felony rioting charges in connection with the protests in Washington on Jan. 20. ]

An Enemies list...more Nixonian every day.
