Myspace died years ago. But 1 billion dead profiles are still valuable; they were bought by ad-tech firm Viant, which became part of Time Inc. in 2016. So the behaviourally targeted ads of today may contain hints of our long-lost teenage digital selves. Wistful or creeped out?

To be clear, is supporting "a structure that enables private, non-transparent data transfer agreements between the US and other nations [that] hardly addresses privacy and human rights concerns."

I agree. We need regulation, but not just of the tech giants. Regulation of the current implementation of the Internet itself is required to impede this sort of manipulation and subversion of democracy. A draft proposal in this direction:

It's tempting to claim that blockchains will make law obsolete or that law will make blockchains go away. These claims are simplistic and wrong. It's much less appealing to do the hard work of making tech and law work well with each other, but that's exactly what's needed.

Deleting your social media account might make you happier, but real change will come from institutional reform and state regulation, not individual consumer choices. And you can't opt out of the digital surveillance society no matter what you delete.

Following from this practice, it should be clear that some regulation has to be implemented: A) Users should own their own . B) No use of pers. data for commercial purposes. (That's a radical request but should be considered anyways!) C) Full disclosure of all dark ads!

The infographic is obv. oversimplified. It's supposed to convey the general idea of psych. microtargeting. used personality quizzes & combined the results with users' FB behavior. By that, they could derive personality traits of users who didn't do the game.

I did a similar study on microtargeting and its effects on voters with a slightly different RQ focusing on candidate appeals rather than policy ads, revealing similar results. Psy. microtargeting works - but it mainly works on the emotional level!

I hate the fact that importance of blockchain is overblown while it’s just a data structure. The difficult parts of DLT are: P2P, peer discovery, routing, DHT, sharding, privacy, consensus, replication, recovery, resistance to Sybil attacks and Eclipse attacks

Add to that scalability, ethical (= personal, based on your own social graph) data gathering and processing, metadata protection… and regulating unethical (= centralized) competition…
