"Surveillance capitalists' interests have shifted from using automated machine processes to know about your behavior to ... shape your behavior according to their interests." The whole Pokémon Go thing passed me by, but now I discover in #TheAgeOfSurveillanceCapitalism that it was a gross experiment in herding hapless players to Starbucks and pizzerias.
They've always wanted you to "click this ad", but "sleepwalk into this shop" is some next level behavior modification.
The @nextcloud markdown editor just lost a hour of my wife's work. No errors, no messages, nothing saved. This will be a deal-breaker that drives her back to Google Docs 😞
Any other self-hosted, in-browser document editors that have a good mobile app out there? (apart from OwnCloud)
Well, this is both fascinating and terrifying: https://arxiv.org/abs/2012.07805
This is honestly like turning the crank on a meat grinder backwards and having that work so well that that cows just mosey out of it under their own power. It is astounding.
10. It's becoming creepy to realise that a lot of important places and roads where I grew up were named after assholes; Richmond (Road), Hobson (Street), Wakefield (Street), Grey (Lynn), Marsden (Point)...
But famous Māori protagonists don't seem to have become street names.
We're steeped in colonialism in insidious ways I hadn't imagined.
(Naming streets after colonial assholes is also big in Buenos Aires, where I now live, but at least they teach their exploits in schools here)
9. Settlers (in Auckland at least) actually supported upholding the Treaty, as they were heavily dependent on trade with Māori.
But only until settlers began to outnumber Māori. Then the Treaty became a nuisance that should be overruled, so it would no longer " damp the ardour and cramp the energies of the industrious white man" - this from a settler who was also 'Native Minister' in the settler government (!)
