US Army airplane for war zone was used against protesters in Oregon. That's what regimes do: deploy the army against their own people, treat their own people as their enemy

“Their 2 main tools — buying their way out of the problem & a willingness to lose money — are both made possible by sky-high Wall St. valuations, which go only higher with acquisitions of competitors, fueling a cycle of enrichment & consolidation of power”

The greatest challenge we have today is distance. For every KM/mile of distance digital eliminates, it creates a KM/mile of emotional distance. With digital, we travel away from where we are at. When we're on digital we're not there, we're out. Digital gives, digital takes.

AI is our prejudices, racism embedded in code. More than anything, AI learns from the past to reproduce the past. If we want to our future to look like our past, embrace AI. If we want an better future, we must most seriously review the data we feed and rear AI with.

I suppose we might say: "People don't read crap on the Web, unless it's the crap they want to read."

That's for sure. AI is the McDonald's of content.

Maybe that people read differently. But do we really even know how people read in print. Do we really know how many people abandon reading a book or newspaper article? Practically everything we do on the Web depends on words.

Exactly. What we can learn from the Web--and this is pretty much a first (direct mail)--is what words work and what words don't. There is no greater laboratory of words than the Web.

Depends. You'll probably solve problems by taking words away, though.

Data over wires requires least energy. Wi-Fi is reasonably energy efficient. If data is transferred over a cellular network, energy use soars. Wireless traffic through 3G uses 15 times more energy than Wi-Fi, while 4G consumes 23 times more.

"People don't read on the Web" is one of the most damaging statements ever made about the Web. People read more on the Web than in any other medium ever. Ever. Words are the atomic structure of the Web. All good web design begins with words.

And of course Google's long term strategy is to have everything possible happen within it's environment. We will be living within the State of Google.

Print has a wonderful role. It's just that because of hundreds of years of habits, people create and manage digital content in the same way they created and managed print content.

“The picture that emerges from these documents is not one of steady entrepreneurial brilliance.” How overvaluation and under-enforcement helped Big Tech crush startups and create illegal monopolies.

Think of how truly difficult it is to write a really good sentence. Content is much more complex than any current tech can deal with. We only see the big consequences of content mismanagement in a pandemic, but low level consequences have been happening all the time.

And they won't 'fix' these problems because to truly fix them would change the business model of the tech industry and make it much less profitable. In the pursuit of tech super profit we are ripping open societies.
