    https://www.cbc.ca/radio/frontburner/former-facebook-insider-s-wake-up-call-to-the-catastrophe-of-big-tech-1.5089745

    Roger McNamee, the author of Zucked: Waking up to the Facebook Catastrophe, explains how the business model of big tech is inseparable from its most negative effects.


    This is a radio program (23 minutes long). McNamee discusses the impact of massive data accumulation and AI by the likes of Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft.
    He talks about gmail, Google Street View, Google Glass, Pokemon Go and captcha among others. It's all about being able to predict and manipulate our behavior and the efforts that go into that.

    An excerpt:
    "...Essentially, Facebook is 2.5 billion Truman Shows where each person is being fed what they like in a way that allows them to believe that whatever they believe, those are the facts."

    Dont have a specific article, just an observation here. Anyone notice how old Assange looked when he exited the Ecuador Embassy? Looks like a 7yr blue light tax was paid....

    I boycott intrusive advertising and lousy epigenetic corporate ideas. Advertisers won't pay the ad cost if their sales go down. We the people 'consented' to advertising and concomitant subliminal mind-control a long time ago... Aww, since our pineals have calcified from fluoride et al, what natural use is left for observing the skies, eh?
