Delete Your Account Now: A Conversation with Jaron Lanier - Los Angeles Review of Books
You brought up this other question of why is it so important for people to leave [Facebook and other social media], and the thing I want to say is that, because of addiction and because of network effects, I realize that only a small minority of people can do it, and I don’t know how many I have influenced to get off of there. I don’t have a means of measuring that. But here’s what I would say: there have been times before, recently and even in America, when society had to confront mass addiction that had a commercial component. I’m thinking of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. And I’m thinking of the public smoking of cigarettes. In both of those cases, there were industries that relied on mass addiction, but somehow or other, a rational conversation gradually created a change. In neither case was the substance totally outlawed, but its role in society was vastly changed. And I just want to point out that this process of having a rational conversation about how things can change is only possible when at least somebody isn’t addicted. If the MADD Mothers were themselves alcoholics, it would have been harder for them to organize. A space for conversation where some people aren’t addicted facilitates thinking different thoughts and being able to envision different outcomes. And what I do believe is that we can get at least enough people to quit this stuff to create such a space. There’s a lot of interesting ground covered in this chat with Jaron Lanier. It definitely made me want to read his book. There’s a great part about how social media’s enabled social justice campaigns (like Black Lives Matter or #metoo), but the same qualities that made them viral makes them vulnerable to counter-movements.

Did Facebook’s faulty data push news publishers to make terrible decisions on video? » Nieman Journalism Lab
it may have had enormous consequences — not just for advertisers deciding to shift resources from television to Facebook, but also for news organizations, which were grappling with how to allocate editorial staff and what kinds of content creation to prioritize. News publishers’ “pivot to video” was driven largely by a belief that if Facebook was seeing users, in massive numbers, shift to video from text, the trend must be real for news video too — even if people within those publishers doubted the trend based on their own experiences, and even as research conducted by outside organizations continued to suggest that the video trend was overblown and that news readers preferred text.

Marihuana: Canadá abre la puerta del mundo desarrollado al cannabis recreativo | Sociedad | EL PAÍS
<<La legalización de la marihuana para uso recreativo ganó este miércoles una batalla importante al conseguir entrar en Canadá. No es el primer país del mundo que da este paso, celebrado con largas colas de clientes ansiosos por comprarla pero recibida con cautela por los mercados. El pionero fue Uruguay el año pasado, que vende la droga en farmacias. Pero el peso demográfico del gigante norteamericano —36 millones, de los que 4,9 millones son consumidores, más que toda la población de Uruguay, que es de 3,5 millones— y económico —en Uruguay las ventas han sido de unos 35 millones este año frente a los 3.300 millones de ventas ilegales del año pasado en Canadá—; su pertenencia al G-7, a la OCDE y su tratado renovado de libre comercio con Estados Unidos dan a la decisión un peso que la iniciativa uruguaya no tuvo. ... legalizar la marihuana es una medida positiva simplemente porque la prohibición ha sido peor”, afirma Jean-Sébastien Fallu, experto en adicciones en la Universidad de Montreal. ... se eliminarán los antecedentes penales a quienes fueron condenados y cumplieron condena por posesión de hasta 30 gramos de marihuana, que ahora es el límite legal. Unas 500.000 personas están en esta situación. >>

Jamal Khashoggi: What the Arab world needs most is free expression - The Washington Post
<<... There is only one country in the Arab world that has been classified as “free.” That nation is Tunisia. Jordan, Morocco and Kuwait come second, with a classification of “partly free.” The rest of the countries in the Arab world are classified as “not free.” �As a result, Arabs living in these countries are either uninformed or misinformed. They are unable to adequately address, much less publicly discuss, matters that affect the region and their day-to-day lives. A state-run narrative dominates the public psyche, and while many do not believe it, a large majority of the population falls victim to this false narrative.>>

Lawsuit: "pivoting to video" was a disaster led by Facebook's cooked viewing data / Boing Boing
The company decided to "obfuscate the fact that we screwed up the math" by quietly retiring the erroneous metrics and replacing them with corrected metrics under a new name. For instance, Average Duration of Video Viewed would be replaced with Average Watch Time. [...] In August 2016, Facebook began reaching out privately to select, large advertisers, telling them that Facebook had "recently discovered a discrepancy" in the video ad average view metrics. Facebook pushed that message even as personnel internally emphasized that "we didn't recently discover a discrepancy." (emphasis added).
