How the West Got China's Social Credit System Wrong

quote [ It occupies a spot next to 'Black Mirror' and Big Brother in popular imagination, but China?s social credit project is far more complicated than a single, all-powerful numerical score. ]

A month or so back, while trying to find out wtf is actually going on with Venezuela, I started doing Spanish lessons on Duolingo because US Media's coverage of South America is so shit. Clearly, I'm going to need to expand my studies.

How Facebook’s brain-machine interface measures up

quote [ Facebook isn't the only one developing brain-machine interfaces. Here's a few competitors with equally promising neural tech. ]

Just a reminder that the company with a business model commoditizing user manipulation and data collection, and owner of one of the biggest VR hardware companies, is also working on their own brain computer interface. Hooray!

Oh, and Amazon is pretty much turning the police into their own sales force for door bell cameras.

Qualified Immunity, A Roadblock to Reform

quote [ In the broader effort to hold police accountable, most typified in the Black Lives Matter movement, one somewhat obscure legal conceit has in a largely unnoticed way contributed to our current regime of unaccountability. That conceit: what?s called qualified immunity. Invented out of whole cloth by the Supreme Court in 1967 and widely expanded in 1982, qualified immunity exemptions make holding law enforcement accountable for abusing people?s rights that much more difficult. ]

What the fucking fuck.

Applying for Your Next Job May Be an Automated Nightmare

quote [ If you think looking for a job is already daunting, anxiety-riddled, and unpleasant, just wait until the algorithms take over the hiring process. When they do, a newfangled ?digital recruiter? like VCV, which just received $1.7 million in early investment, hopes it will look something like this: ]

New podcast digs into all 846 episodes of ?Cops? and its distorted reality of crime culture

quote [ In his new podcast, ?Running from Cops,? ?Missing Richard Simmons? host Dan Taberski investigates the skewed depiction of law enforcement on ?Cops.? ]

About the only time I have consistent free time anymore is in the shower and while eating breakfast, so I've been using podcasts to try and pack in as much info as I can. Haven't checked this one out yet, but I'm putting it on my list. Thought others might be interested. Did recently listen to a really good related Citation's Needed ep though: Citations Needed Episode 60: Saving Kittens, Lip Syncing and Christmas Traffic Stops: Your Guide to Clickbait?

Facebook accidentally put hidden messages like 'Big Brother is Watching' and 'The Masons Were Here' in 'tens of thousands' of VR controllers

quote [ Nate Mitchell, the cofounder of Oculus, the Facebook-owned VR company, said on Twitter on Friday that the company inadvertently printed some unusual messages in its Touch controllers, handheld devices for playing games and navigating VR environments.

These messages were intended only for prototypes, but a mistake meant they were included in regular production devices, he said. ]
