Netflix's doc "Social Dilemma" is very good and very revealing

"Social Dilemma" is the story behind the algorithms that drive the tech industry's cash machine.

If five folks from five different states go to Wikipedia and type in "climate change", there will be the same definition for all five.

Go to Goggle and do the same, the suggestions found will be different for each of the five.

That might seem obvious but when you appreciate the granular nature of how these changes start to manipulate the user-us-well, social media starts looking scary.

i found the doc well done, informative and thought provoking.

Stay well.

Rob

I'm in, thank you Rob.




Two for two, I'm good now.

We are a government of laws, not men.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

It was very informative. Shows how we continue to stove-pipe and separate from everyone else...

I started fast forwarding through the dramatizations. Seemed like padding an hour documentary to two.

Is there any "new information" as part of this? It's what we all already know, is it not?
