Magid: It’s about time we had more control over our data
Silicon Valley tech companies have been fighting against regulations for years, but they are coming, and companies are learning to accept them. Even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, acknowledges that regulations are necessary. In a March Washington Post editorial, Zuckerberg advocated “a more active role for governments and regulators,” in such areas as “harmful content, election integrity, privacy and data portability.” Zuckerberg may be getting his wish – at least when it comes to privacy.

The reason thousands of Swedish people are inserting microchips into themselves
Thousands of people in Sweden have inserted microchips, which can function as contactless credit cards, key cards, and even rail cards, into their bodies. Once the chip is underneath your skin, there is no longer any need to worry about misplacing a card or carrying a heavy wallet. But for many people, the idea of carrying a microchip in their body feels more dystopian than practical. Some have suggested that Sweden’s strong welfare state may be the cause of this recent trend. But actually, t...

'Hate is in the ether': Research finds hate is resilient on the internet
The online networks formed by hate groups may be more resilient than previously thought, and social media companies could need to adopt different tactics to keep them away, according to research released Wednesday.

Welcome to the age of the regreditorial.
Smith Collection/Gado/Getty Images Ask almost anyone: Our brains are a mess and so is our democracy. In the last several years, we’ve seen increased focus on the crimes of the “attention economy,” the capitalist system in which you make money for enormous tech companies by giving them your personal life and your eyes and your mind, which they can sell ads against and target ads with. The deleterious effects of, say, the wildfire sharing of misinformation in the Facebook News Feed, on things o...

Will the rise of A.I. and automation lead to mass unemployment?

Frey is co-director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Technology and Employment at...

San Francisco Returns to Cash as Silicon Valley Pushes Tech on Nation – Old-Thinker News
Old-Thinker News | May 20, 2019 By Daniel Taylor Is a ban on facial recognition and a return to cash showing backlash against Big Tech coming from its home turf? As Facebook plans on rolling out a cashless payment system, San Francisco is banning credit-only stores, requiring businesses to accept cash. District Five Supervisor Vallie Brown, who introduced the legislation, said that not allowing cash was unfair to immigrants and the homeless. Brown wants to go further and ban Amazon's cashless stores. The SFGate added: Some people also prefer to use cash because they don't want to leave a digital trail of where they have been and what they have bought. San Francisco has also banned government use of facial recognition technology. Wired Magazine reports: San Francisco’s ban comes amidst a series of proposals that highlight tensions between the city and tech companies that call it home. On Tuesday, the city also unanimously approved a ban on cashless stores, an effort aimed at Amazon’s cashierless Go stores. Waiting in the wings? A so-called “IPO tax,” in response to the endless march of tech companies going public, which would authorize a city-wide vote to raise the tax rate on corporate stock-based compensation. The Chinese social credit system utilizes cashless payment to control individuals who have a low score. Multiple individuals in the United States have been banned from banks for their political views while Big Tech purges and censors their content online.
