  • Bad taste and poor timing aside, Ms. Sonmez's decision to make it all about herself didn't help the situation. People were entitled to be upset by what they perceived as insensitivity on the reporter's part, and Twitter is indeed the angry "id" of American identity, but Sonmez just seemed to dig herself

    Bad taste and poor timing aside, Ms. Sonmez's decision to make it all about herself didn't help the situation. People were entitled to be upset by what they perceived as insensitivity on the reporter's part, and Twitter is indeed the angry "id" of American identity, but Sonmez just seemed to dig herself deeper and deeper instead of recognizing that her initial post was indeed tone-deaf. Sonmez didn't even editorialize the initial Tweet, just the Daily Beast story's headline. It looked vindictive and callous. Most, if not all Bryant's obituaries made comment on his sexual assault allegations, so it's not as if he was getting a free pass. On the other hand, Sonmez hits on one of the lingering issues plaguing the #metoo movement: the need in some quarters for eternal vengeance on abusers, alleged, guilty or otherwise, without the hope of redemption.

  • This is not surprising considering the WeWork fiasco and the looming issues facing SoftBank's investment in the Oyo hotels, a company now facing similar criticisms of "toxic culture" and questionable business practices. It seems the thirst for the next "unicorn" has really done due diligence a disservice

    This is arguably one of the worst promotional interviews from a director attempting to get press for his latest movie that's come out in recent years. Seriously, Terry Gilliam is cringe-inducing in this article which gets steadily worse the further along you read. If he was attempting to straddle that fine line between being provocative and down right vindictive, he slipped into the latter early on and it seems he just decided to run with it.

  • While not the ultimate 'deep fake' it is both a lighthearted look at AI-driven identities and the vacuity of the interviews and public statements of not just Zuckerberg, but most CEOs. The hodgepodge of banalities and corporate-speak bromides meant to assure shareholders, inspire the acolytes and bamboozle

    While not the ultimate 'deep fake' it is both a lighthearted look at AI-driven identities and the vacuity of the interviews and public statements of not just Zuckerberg, but most CEOs. The hodgepodge of banalities and corporate-speak bromides meant to assure shareholders, inspire the acolytes and bamboozle the media.

  • The tech giants have turned all who use their products into the commodity; now, so powerful, with their lobbyists all over DC and the country under feckless GOP leadership, complaining about it; investigating and revealing it is almost pointless.

  • It's strange how Facebook's decision to allow political misinformation to be posted is a complete contradiction to its decision to remove AI-generated users and content, which in itself is political misinformation on the most granular level. I see little difference in either of these approaches—creating

    It's strange how Facebook's decision to allow political misinformation to be posted is a complete contradiction to its decision to remove AI-generated users and content, which in itself is political misinformation on the most granular level. I see little difference in either of these approaches—creating and distributing political lies and misinformation, whether through legitimate or illegitimate means should be banned. This recent move to delete these accounts seems like little more than lip service.

  • A little late, but better than never.

    A little late, but better than never. But the sad thing is, despite Editor Mark Galli's logical and eloquent indictment of Trump—“The reason many are not shocked about this is that this president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration,” Galli wrote, as well as pointing out that, “his Twitter feed alone—with its habitual string of mischaracterizations, lies, and slanders—is a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused.”—it is all for naught. For Trump supporters, these are not flaws or bugs, these are a feature; something they support and for which they voted. It's the cruelty they enjoy, not the competence.

  • Wow, just what the world needs: a mobile phone operating system that will be more rapacious and promiscuous with your private data than both iOS and Android! What a time to be alive!

  • This seems to be a recurring trope, not just of investment funds, but the bloated fake unicorns many have invested in—Theranos, WeWork, Uber, etc.—where cultures of braggadocio and harassment seemed to be fostered along with a sense of immunity and a lack of culpability.

  • Peter Thiel is a threat to our democracy, period. The more we dance about he and Zuckerberg's almost unlimited and unfettered power, the more precarious US democracy will become.

    Peter Thiel is a threat to our democracy, period. The more we dance about he and Zuckerberg's almost unlimited and unfettered power, the more precarious US democracy will become. From Thiel's routine attacks on journalism, to Zuckerberg's numerous lies and half-truths about Facebook's use of personal data and how the platform promotes disinformation, Congress at home and the EU government abroad needs to tae a stand.
