Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives
case mistakes cost lives
And I'm pondering the awful legacy of:-
Punctuation mistake's cost lives
At the raid on CA, there were some natty blue jackets with "ico. - Information Commissioner's Office". on them.
They should have been
iHat - Information Hazard Action Team
With all the text in comic sans.
ps. bad case setting costs lives. The lower case and period in "ico." was a nice touch.
Another winter. Another of the lowest Arctic Sea Ice Maximum Extent.
"The four lowest maximum extents in the satellite record have all occurred in the past four years."
Aaron Banks now denies using Cambridge Analytica at Leave.EU
Except. By the same journalist. A year ago.
There's also a connection to 55 Tufton Street. Brexit, Climate denial, Right wing think tanks, CA-ACL, manipulation of internet social media. The same people keep turning up.
Is the problem Facebook. Or a corrupt political system. Or both?
Maybe I've just missed it, but this article feels like the first one I've seen that actually talks about the state of the victims.
"The Skripals are both in a coma in hospital.", Pritchard said the police officer hospitalised following the attack, Det Sgt Nick Bailey, was improving each day but described what his wife and children were going through as “horror”. He said the recovery process following the nerve agent attack would be prolonged.
Facebook privacy will turn out to be an amusing and distracting side show. If it turns out that Cambridge Analytica, it's related companies, directors, owners, funders, supporters and customers have broken election law in the USA, UK and elsewhere. And especially in the most recent USA, UK elections and Brexit.
There were and are problems in Facebook that need to be dealing with. But the legal election issues are MUCH, MUCH more important.
CA, Skripal, etc., don't mean Brexit has gone away.
If Boris Johnson (like Trump) just constantly lies; How can we trust anything he says about Salisbury & The Novichoks?
This talk about CA, facebook, targeted messaging and so on.
How do you protect yourself from bullshit and bullshitters? There needs to be some kind of manual and training on psychic self-defense when the media ecosystem is constantly trying to attack you.
Steal this book. Question everything. Never trust anyone over 30. Get out of the echo chamber.
With all the talk about the Cambridge Analytica exposé, when's the CA-Brexit connection going to come front and centre?
2008. 50 best blogs. How many did you read then. How many do you read now?
I don't see a lot of politics there. Surely Guido Fawkes, Bloggerheads were running then. There's a big tech bias as well.
That about wraps it up for Winter. The Equinox was at 16:15 UTC and I'm writing this at 16:16 UTC
I normally prefer the meteorological seasons. But this year in the UK it's been bloody cold with snow in the last few days. Still just time for March to go out like a lamb and for Spring to properly sprung.
Climate change could mean the end of Chicken Tikka Masala, say scientists.
Facebook knew about it anyway, but were all like "stop that", but then wandered off.
Will Twitter and threadreaderapp.com please just motherfucking die already. I mean seriously, fuck that shit.
How the hell did long form text and discussion come to this?
This shaking fist brought to you via,
A most excellent rant about the need for a CS code of ethics. With teeth.
If it wasn't so sad, this would be funny.

No, really. It really is a things. And not just an Internet of Things either.
I was in the IT industry for long enough to watch lots of companies come and go. Some of them massive. When they go bankrupt, there's a fire sale on the assets and the staff just move on. Often the last manager standing gets a huge payout in the process.
But what happens when a country over reaches itself and goes bust. Obviously thinking of the UK here, not Venezuela or Libya.
