Dr. John Ioannidis Exposes the Bad Science of Colleagues - The Atlantic
Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. So why are doctors—to a striking extent—still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? Dr. John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science.

Patricia Lockwood · The Communal Mind: The Internet and Me · LRB 21 February 2019
A few years ago, when it suddenly occurred to us that the internet was a place we could never leave, I began to keep a diary of what it felt like to be there in the days of its snowy white disintegration, which felt also like the disintegration of my own mind. My interest was not academic. I did not care about the Singularity, or the rise of the machines, or the afterlife of being uploaded into the cloud. I cared about the feeling that my thoughts were being dictated. I cared about the collective head, which seemed to be running a fever.

MacKenzie Bezos and the Myth of the Lone Genius Founder | WIRED
What was often missing, or glossed over, is the fact that MacKenzie helped her husband start his historic company, starting by agreeing to leave their life and move across the country from New York City to Seattle, where Amazon was founded. It’s also part of a wider pattern of how the stories of tech companies get told, which erases the many individuals who help to build them in favor of highlighting the “lone genius” at the helm. Many of the people who fade to the background have been women.

Facebook culture described as 'cult-like', review process blamed
More than a dozen former Facebook employees detailed how the company's leadership and its performance review system has created a culture where any dissent is discouraged.
Employees say Facebook's stack ranking performance review system drives employees to push out products and features that drive user engagement without fully considering potential long-term negative impacts on user experience or privacy.
Reliance on peer reviews creates an underlying pressure for Facebook employees to forge friendships with colleagues for the sake of career advancement.

How Bob Iger Seeks to Work More Magic at Disney - Barron's
Walt Disney (ticker: DIS) has in a sense become more Disney-like in how it earns its profits. After 20 years of being dominated by television, especially cable, the company is returning to its roots in films and theme parks. Seven years ago, for each $1 in operating profit that Disney made from its parks and studios, it generated $3 in TV. During the fiscal year ended September, parks and studios retook the lead.

That’s one part of a transformation that could help pull Disney’s stock out of a three-year slump. The other crucial element is Disney+, or “the service,” as company executives privately call it. It’s a streaming platform coming in late 2019 that will bring shows and movies directly to viewers, and it’s a bigger priority for the company than even its Star Wars lands as it takes on the Death Star of TV, Netflix (NFLX).
