The next obvious move is for you to create an online page where your "fans" can buy merch. Maybe a coffee cup with a cartoon version of you standing really far away from the speakerphone, smugly smiling with an overhead thought bubble that says, "I'm more important than you!"

There's a great post on different visions of how to regulate FRT that differentiates the GDPR approach vs. U.S. alternatives through self-regulation, state regulation, and hybrid models that can include new federal laws.

This is just pie-in-the-sky idealism. The neo-liberal university is not at all invested in minimizing the "long-term burnout and dissatisfaction" of those of us lucky enough to have tenured positions. Not can it be persuaded to be by moral argument or evidence of productivity

Glad reminded us of the "Selfish Ledger" vid. After the Verge first published it, the usual round of hot takes came out. Then, per new normal, in the blink-of-an-eye the collective attention went elsewhere. But it's the re-engineering blueprint! cc:

Going to keep making this point. It's central to & my position. "Facial recognition is expected to become a $9.6bn market." The issue, then, isn't just about abuses of tech. It's about *normalization*. Market forces shape policy by shaping expectations of privacy.

I was listening to MJ in the background while you were watching & didn't get to ask for your reaction. No surprise, we agree. Complex structural issues were erased from the convo in order to unfairly frame the matter as a referendum on one individual's judgment/credibility. BS!

I strongly recommend ’s forthcoming book, “Coders”! Last term, Clive talked about it with my students- undergrads, lots of engineering majors. They were utterly captivated. If you teach engineering students, you should invite Clive to your campus to give a book talk.

How artificial intelligence nudges you for profit. *Terrific* deep dive on digital market manipulation in the context of Alexa and AI-enabled assistants. By with & others.

You think that if we could peer inside the thought bubble over Jeff Bezos’s head, we’d see him testing out revenge fantasies like, “What would happen if I decided to cancel Prime in downstate NY?”

The conference I'm co-organizing will be on May 10th. So, the trip will revolve around this date. Will you still be in town?
