The Science of Information, ca. 1870-1945: The Universalization of Knowledge in a Utopian Age
"Between about 1870 and 1945, for visionaries and planners around the world, projects for assembling universal knowledge and projects for effecting a universal political order went hand-in-hand. This symposium will investigate the development of intertwining utopianisms in internationalist politics and in the science of information during this period. This span of years stretches from the onset of modern war, in America and Western Europe, to its most horrific climax in World War II. It is also the period during which global transportation and communications systems were constructed, the modern global economy was knit together, and both scientific and humanistic scholarship became a professional and global enterprise. Such developments made the collection and sharing of information and the establishment of accord among nation-states especially urgent, the stuff of utopian speculation, pacifist dreams, and, sometimes, pragmatic nightmares. A striking measure of this urgency was the formation in 1922 of the League of Nations’ International Committee on Intellectual Cooperation, the primary aim of which was to address and resolve issues at the intersection of information and diplomacy."

Hope, Fear, and Exhaustion in a Changing World – Medium
We’ve gotten so used to certain kinds of prosthetics that we forget that this is what they are. My eyeglasses are prosthetic vision, accommodating what I can no longer see as clearly. Writing is a prosthesis for memory: they keep track of what I can no longer remember or of the thoughts of people who are no longer here. Search engines are prosthetics for knowledge: they solve that annoying problem that we do not, at any instant, know everything, by permitting us to briefly glance into our electronic minds and have anything from how to fix a leaky faucet to the basics of algebraic K-theory loaded up into our minds in seconds.

In the past year, I’ve slowly started to realize what this kind of omnipresent journalism is: it’s a prosthetic for our natural inability to focus on problems which aren’t right in front of us, by keeping the problems which matter in our eyesight. Journalism is our prosthetic conscience. Today, we are dealing with the consequences of having a conscience which functions far more strongly than we have ever had to deal with before.

News Analysis: @Adobe @Microsoft Partner Up For Marketing Cloud, Azure and #AI #MSIgnite - by @rwang0
"While Adobe currently uses multiple providers and data centers for its cloud operations, the move to Microsoft Azure will provide a global, Tier-1 environment for work loads as well as security. More importantly, Adobe gains another tool for machine learning. However, access to SQL Server remains questionable as performance issues for SQL Server on Azure remain for heavy transactional apps."

The Principles of PolitiFact, PunditFact and the Truth-O-Meter | PolitiFact
Editor’s note: We often get questions about how we select claims to check and how we make our rulings. So a couple of times a year, we publish this overview of our procedures and the principles for Truth-O-Meter rulings. PolitiFact is a fact-checking website that rates the accuracy of claims by elected officials and others who speak up in American politics.
