IRS sues Facebook for $9B, says company offshored profits to Ireland

I saw a video on the HP85 personal computer from 1979 and it really got me thinking about how we do computing today.
How easy it it for the average user to sit down at a computer and do some computation?
I guess that the closest thing we have to a general purpose numbercruncher for most people is... Excel/Calc/Google Sheets?
That's absolutely not the direction HP, etc thought computation would go in 1979, I'm sure.
Un fantastico nuovo episodio con il keynote OEB2019 di Audrey Watters e una superproduzione che nemmanco la RAI.
Share and enjoy!

If they hadn't misunderstood the difference between a name of a field and the social and cultural implications of it's usage, this paper wouldn't have been written.

Facial recognition cameras will put us all in an identity parade | Frederike Kaltheuner
The Metropolitan police are rolling this technology out on to our streets, warns tech expert Frederike Kaltheuner
“The deployment of connected home security cameras that allow footage to be queried centrally are simply not compatible with a free society. The privacy issues are not fixable with regulation and there is no balance that can be struck. Ring should be shut down immediately and not brought back.”

@kick That's simply how information works.
So with pervasive recorded fungible, manipulable, queryable, records, on tremendous numbers of people, you don't know what future motives, contexts, norms, values, power structures, etc., will be.
The problem with Google's policy of getting right up to the creepy line, is that that creepy line moves.
So does the Surveillance Data Risk Line.
And we don't know what parts will move which way for what people and data.

Poi c'è una cosa che è venuta maturando negli anni in Internet: una crescente giustificazione delle intrusioni da parte delle aziende nella vita degli utenti, riassunta nell'idea del "che mi importa? Tanto non ho niente da nascondere."
E invece no. Proprio perché non ho niente da nascondere nessuno ha diritto di intromettersi nella mia vita.
Se avessi fatto qualcosa sarebbe la polizia ad indagare, non G. FB. Tw. o chissà chi. E visto che non ho fatto niente, dei privati cosa vogliono da me?
Some idiot had to get there sooner or later.
That this was ever allowed to happen is a mistake we will live long enough to die regretting the shitty world we are leaving our children.
A data knight, far too aware of the dark side.
The algorithmic is political. ('is' as in A⊆P)
