Facebook Screws Up a Critical Piece of Its Anti-Revenge Porn Tech
Potential victims are already dealing with the threat of not only a gross invasion of privacy but the loss of autonomy. Giving them the choice on whether or not they are aware of how their photos might be circulated online is a small ask for volunteering their nude photos and putting their trust in a massive corporation.

Millions of people uploaded photos to the Ever app. Then the company used them to develop facial recognition tools.
“Ever AI promises prospective military clients that it can ‘enhance surveillance capabilities’ and ‘identify and act on threats.’ It offers law enforcement the ability to identify faces in body-cam recordings or live video feeds.” Tweet by indie at May 09, 2019 at 03:43PM

Accessibility Problems with Infinite Scrolling | Accessible360
Imagine someone who can only use the keyboard to navigate your site. Imagine that person having to hit the tab key 100 times or 1000 times just to get through all the content on your page. Does that person want to continue using your site? Would you? Probably not. In addition, if a page uses infinite scroll, there may be issues with using the back button – if a user clicks on a link and then uses the back button to return to the infinite list of items, will focus be returned to where they were, or will they need to start all over at the top of the list? Keyboard users will feel this pain most as they would need to tab back to where they were, potentially 100s of button presses.

Another tax on the poor: Surrendering privacy for survival
Undocumented immigrants, day laborers, homeless people, and those with criminal convictions suffer from another data extreme: living beyond the reach of the data collection systems needed to thrive in society, they gain so much “privacy” that they become increasingly invisible. Living in this surveillance gap can be as damaging as living under constant surveillance, and is often a reaction to it.

Study finds a potential risk with self-driving cars: failure to detect dark-skinned pedestrians - Vox
In addition to worrying about how safe they are, how they’d handle tricky moral trade-offs on the road, and how they might make traffic worse, we also need to worry about how they could harm people of color.

If you’re a person with dark skin, you may be more likely than your white friends to get hit by a self-driving car, according to a new study out of the Georgia Institute of Technology. That’s because automated vehicles may be better at detecting pedestrians with lighter skin tones.
