Tech Goes to Washington - by @benthompson #facebook #google
"Still, Kennedy’s two lines of questions combined revealed the tech companies’ testimony for the paradox it was: on the one hand, their sheer scale means it is impossible to fully stamp out activities like Russian meddling; on the other, that same scale means they all have the most intimate information on nearly everyone."

The Coming Tech Backlash
"50% of the jobs will be gone in ~20 years. Not from the great sucking sound of jobs to Mexico that can be stopped with a wall. Not from moving offshore to China. From automation that is moving quickly from blue collar manufacturing to white collar information work. Second only to climate change, this is the greatest disruption of our time, and I don’t mean that word in a good way."

Who You Gonna Believe? Inside the Strange, Frighteningly Influential Fake News Industry
"This expanded the conversation about fake news from just Facebook to Google. Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, told the BBC, “There should just be no situation where fake news gets distributed, so we are all for doing better here.” The BBC reporter asks him several times if fake news could’ve affected America’s election results, especially since many races were close.

They report that he paused for a moment before answering “Sure.”

Win Them Alone, Lose Them Together - by @kellblog #sales
“Look, if you’re working on a deal and it starts to go south, you need to get everyone involved in working on it. First, that puts maximum resources on winning the deal and if — despite that effort — you end up losing, you want people saying ‘We lost the Acme deal,’ not ‘You lost the Acme deal.'”

How To Make Sense Of The Brexit Turmoil
"Ignore the initial market reaction: The initial reaction will tell us next to nothing about the longer-run impact a Brexit will have on markets or the broader economy. Market turmoil was probably inevitable after a decision this momentous, and it will be made worse by the fact that the outcome was a surprise: Despite polls showing a close race, most investors expected the “Remain” side to prevail in the end. That means markets hadn’t fully “priced in” a Brexit and will now have to adjust."

What Facebook’s ‘It’s Not Our Fault’ Study Really Means
The Facebook news feed curation algorithm, “based on many factors,” removes hard news from diverse sources that you are less likely to agree with but it does not remove the hard news that you are likely to agree with (S7). They call news from a source you are less likely to agree with “cross-cutting.”
