New from me: the tech companies want to reframe the NZ conversation to be about the speed of video takedowns. But we need to talk about the root problem. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/19/opinion/facebook-youtube-new-zealand.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share
New review continues to show that the fear of smart phones and social media was built on a castle made of sand. Turns out almost all of previous research never bothered to validate their assessments of smart phone use - and that appears to have been a HUGE mistake (thread)
(Note: according to a 2017 Cato survey, 41% of Republicans and 42% of conservatives believe that saying police are racist is a form of hate speech. Fully half of all Americans support barring from campus a speaker who criticizes or disrespects the police.)
Zuckerberg himself may not be directly involved in all these #edtech investments - there's a team at the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative - but this is how the profits of surveillance capitalism are being spent to transform public education https://www.raise.me/how-it-works
Endlessly amazed how the platform university is being built right in our faces yet hardly anyone (except the investors funding it) notices - the Handshake platform for linking students to employers just got $40million from a VC team including Zuckerberg https://www.joinhandshake.com/
New paper out based on a massive sample (n = 355,358) finds that screens explain less than 0.4% of depression AND shows why previous research is deeply flawed - unless you are willing to believe potatoes and eyeglasses are also destroying a generation (Thread 1/13)
At some point, it's not an accident.
I know there's a lot going on right now but it's weird nobody's talking about how the UK is blocking ALL PORN later this year. And how you'll need to upload your passport to a database of porn users to get around the block. Or buy a "porn pass" (!) from your local newsagent (!!)
Ich weiß jetzt, wie das Jubelvideo des @Europarl_DE zur Urheberrechtsreform zustande gekommen ist. Die gute Nachricht: Die Verwaltung hat anscheinend nicht absichtlich versucht, die Öffentlichkeit zu manipulieren. Die schlechte Nachricht:
#SaveYourInternet #Artikel13 #Artikel11
With the takeover of the sovereign border security, #Bavaria is also using new technology. The extraction of telephones should verify identities and help in the detection of "smuggler networks". Another application is „contactless identity verification“.
For years Facebook claimed the adding a phone number for 2FA was only for security. Now it can be searched and there's no way to disable that.
Here's Mark Meadows, who just sidetracked the entire House Oversight Committee to assure him he's not racist, saying that "2012 is the time we are going to send Mr. Obama home to Kenya or wherever it is"
The TERFs have found us & just to reassure them: the #WomenStrike explicitly centres trans women. Trans feminist demands are integral to our politics, and many of the organisers of the strike are trans. If you can't get on board with that, go elsewhere with your rancid takes 💁🏽♀️

Neonazis sind Anfang Februar in #Nürnberg mit Fackeln vor der Geflüchtetenunterkunft Beuthener Str. aufmarschiert. Sie berichten, dass die @Polizei_MfR es bei einer bloßen Kontrolle belassen hätte - und setzten den Fackelmarsch ungehindert auf das NS-Reichsparteitagsgelände fort.

hopeless culture/queer/politics romantic + webtheorythusiast. feminist bc still can't not be.
