The internet is a manifestation of our psyches—neither better nor worse — Quartz
We were once so enthusiastic about this experiment called the world wide web. Now we're more cynical. But if we don't like what we see, the internet isn't the culprit.

GitHub - theupdateframework/notary: Notary is a project that allows anyone to have trust over arbitrary collections of data
Notary is a project that allows anyone to have trust over arbitrary collections of data - theupdateframework/notary

Data signing, basically.
Looks like it still requires a secure channel for keys.
Which makes me wonder why they're not using pki or even pubic keys. (I may be misunderstanding the architecture.)

Amazon’s AI-powered recruiting tool was biased against women — Quartz

The team decided to train the system on the previous 10 years of resumes sent to Amazon, which were mostly men.
When the algorithm reached its conclusions for what would be good and what would be bad in an applicant, it mirrored the hiring biases towards men that Amazon had shown in the past.


Honestly, I don't think this algorithm is bad.
It successfully reflected the bias of the organization.
While this is useless as a predictive tool, it's actually profoundly important as an auditing tool.

See No Evil

In the past twenty years, popular and academic audiences have taken a growing interest in the physical infrastructure of global supply chains. The journalist Alexis Madrigal’s Containers podcast took on the question of how goods travel so far, so quickly. The writer Rose George traveled the world on a container ship for her book Ninety Percent of Everything. And Marc Levinson’s The Box startled Princeton University Press by becoming a national bestseller. Most recently, Deborah Cowen’s The Deadly Life of Logistics offered a surprisingly engrossing history of that all-important industry.

These books help us visualize the physical infrastructure that makes global capitalism possible. But the data infrastructure has yet to be explored. How does information travel through the supply chain in such a peculiar way, so that I know to wait impatiently at my door at the exact moment my new iPhone will arrive—but no one really seems to know how it has gotten to me?

I don’t have a soundcloud to plug so instead you should support the SF Housing Rights Committee because they do the best work.

Everyone suggesting cloud storage has clearly never stored their most treasured MP3s on a “music locker” site that evaporated when the Napster trial went down

GitHub - dbohdan/structured-text-tools: A list of command line tools for manipulating structured text data
another "curated list" only this one seems actually curated since the author of the list is also author of several related tools so one may assume that he or she actually has some insight into the other tools.

Falsehoods Programmers Believe About CSVs — Donat Studios
The "falsehood" trope/snowclone is as tiresome as "considered hazardous."
I do appreciate lists like this because sloppy encoding is the bane of my existence.
