Bolsonaro presidential decree grants sweeping powers over NGOs in Brazil
Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro has used an executive order to give his government secretary potentially far-reaching and restrictive powers over non-governmental organizations working in Brazil.

The temporary decree, which will expire unless it is ratified within 120 days by Congress, mandates that the office of the Government Secretary, Carlos Alberto Dos Santos Cruz, “supervise, coordinate, monitor and accompany the activities and actions of international organizations and non-governmental organizations in the national territory.”

Taylor Swift’s Security Used Facial Recognition Technology to Monitor Concert Crowds for Stalkers. Is That Allowed?
Security at Taylor Swift’s Rose Bowl show in May reportedly used facial recognition technology to monitor the crowd for the singer’s known stalkers. According to Rolling Stone, a screen playing rehearsal clips had a facial recognition camera surreptitiously embedded to record concertgoers who were watching the footage. “Everybody who went by would stop and stare at it, and the software would start working,” Mike Downing, the chief security officer of Oak View Group, told the magazine.

A command post in Nashville, almost 2,000 miles away from the venue, then cross-referenced the recorded images with a database of more than 100 people who had previously stalked Swift. It’s unclear who made this list or what the criteria was for being added, but a number of people have been arrested over the years for allegedly stalking or threatening the singer, including breaking into her home.

Going Dumb: My Year With a Flip Phone | WIRED
n the ’90s, Neil Postman taught us to ask of every piece of technology a single question: What problem was it solving? If the problem was real, you could feel more comfortable with the invention.

Tested against the smartphone, however, the question collapses. Of course the smartphone solves a problem—it solves a multiplicity of them. Every day it seems to solve more and more. By that logic, the smartphone is a noble, worthwhile technology. Yet the conclusion is unsatisfying. Nobody believes it entirely. On some level we may even wish for the opposite. To be shown, once and for all, not only that smartphones don’t solve real problems but that, like an accidentally left-on car, they might just strangle us in the night.

Can a media literacy program that is working in Ukraine also help the U.S.?
The program, called Learn to Discern, just might be working. Eighteen months later, IREX, a nonprofit education organization with international reach, conducted a follow-up study to determine whether Learn to Discern had any impact on its participants. (Disclosure: IREX sponsors a U.S.–Ukrainian journalist exchange that Slate takes part in.) The organization surveyed more than 400 people—200 who took part in the program and 200 of similar age and demographics who did not—asking them to read a few news items and answer questions about what was true and what was questionable. The results, to be released Thursday, showed that Learn to Discern participants performed better than their peers on assessments of whether they understood where their news was coming from and whether they could detect disinformation.

News organizations shoulder much of the blame for the moral panic that cast mothers with crack addictions as irretrievably depraved and the worst enemies of their children. The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time, Newsweek and others further demonized black women “addicts” by wrongly reporting that they were giving birth to a generation of neurologically damaged children who were less than fully human and who would bankrupt the schools and social service agencies once they came of age.

10 things progressive funders must learn from conservative ones, or we are all screwed | Nonprofit AF
Conservative funders focus on the big picture, act quickly, do not micromanage, provide significant general operating funds, fund for twenty or thirty years, support leaders and movements, engage in policy and politics, and treat grantees as equal partners. Progressive funders—with a few exceptions—intellectualize, are severely risk-averse, focus narrowly, fund isolated strategies and programs, avoid politics, and treat grantees like parasites and freeloaders.

Everything You Know About Millennials and Talk Radio is Wrong
When you think about the ways that millennials get their news, talk radio probably doesn’t come to mind. So the question becomes: how do you make talk radio relatable to a group defying traditional communications norms?

The answer?

You make it community driven, experiential, and give it a sense of self-deprecation. In other words, you honor the millennial psyche. In developing successful radio program geared to late wave Gen Xers and early wave Millennials (born between 1970-1985), my team and I set out to understand the behavioral traits for effective communication with millennials. We discovered common threads that are helpful in building persuasive arguments that engage the millennial mindset. We discovered these key points:

The few that passed were landmarks — the Freedom of Information Act in 1967, the Fair Credit Reporting Act in 1970, and the Privacy Act in 1974 — but all of them focused on individuals’ right to know about the information these databases held. None addressed the question of whether this information should have been gathered in the first place.

Why the Google Walkout Was a Watershed Moment in Tech - The New York Times
For two years, regulators, lawmakers, academics and the media have pushed Silicon Valley to alter its world-swallowing ways. But outsiders have few points of leverage in tech; there are few laws governing the industry’s practices, and lawmakers have struggled to get up to speed on tech’s implications for society. Protests by workers are an important new avenue for pressure; the very people who make these companies work can change what they do in the world.

He combines the words “play” and “labour” (he uses the British spelling) to signify how the distinction between leisure and production becomes unclear as digital media turns creative play into a commodity. Please don’t get distracted by the fancy jargon Küchlich borrows from the academic field of political economy. There’s nothing especially complicated about what he’s trying to say. It’s basically just the observation that every time my boys post a photo on Instagram or chat on Discord, they’re providing the content that other users will enjoy.

this story has many juicy bits about how organizations have to think when making major operational changes. If you add to this picture the information NPQ wrote about earlier this week concerning the culture at the Gates Foundation, it all makes sense. Systems are designed to resist change—until they are fully invested in a vision for something different.

Big or small, a well-run nonprofit must effectively manage organizational change and the human dimension of organizational life. These are the key takeaways from a recent state court decision that found the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation had mishandled the hiring of a new chief data officer (CDO).

Powerless: How Top Foundations Failed to Defend Their Values—And Now Risk Losing Everything — Inside Philanthropy
The foundation world has mostly kept doing what it’s always done: trying to solve problems one at a time, within narrow frames, and steering clear of anything that might smack of ideology or partisanship. By and large, these funders have acted in the exact opposite way as the cabal of conservative funders who’s enjoyed stunning success in reshaping public policy.

Now, this cautious world of institutional philanthropy faces a moment of reckoning. Many funders are facing the potential of catastrophic setbacks to long-held goals.  

Will the alarming developments of the past two years—and past few weeks—finally push mainstream philanthropy to stand up and fight for its values in the all-important spheres of ideology and power?

Ancestry Sites Could Soon Expose Nearly Anyone's Identity, Researchers Say
Agencies such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have regulations for federally funded research that involves human subjects. Known as the common rule, a revision of these guidelines was set to be implemented in 2017, but won’t come in full effect until 2019. The revised common rule doesn’t currently consider our genomes to be identifiable information, but Erlich noted that the HHS is allowed to change that status as technology advances. That might stop unscrupulous scientists, who would stand to lose federal funding if they were caught trying to pilfer people’s identities.

It is what you never learned that might have saved you.”

Casey and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations. Because of its size, if the big foundations asked Melville to join a partnership, “we’d be left out,” Ms. Elliott said. Instead, she said, Melville made the first move. “So we go ahead and start it ourselves,” she said, “and then ask the others to join.”

What Is a Data Trust? | Centre for International Governance Innovation
What is perhaps new is the degree to which public governance and market institutions have developed, globalized and acquired interests of their own. The globalization of data markets has outpaced the evolution and jurisdiction of most consumer protections, which are typically designed and enforced by sovereigns. As with most self-regulation, it’s unlikely that markets alone will enforce good practice when it comes to data. Similarly, sovereign attempts to govern the global internet are often overreaching. Since a plurality of interests will be affected by data governance, a similarly plural governance tool is necessary.

Because polygraphs have never convinced the majority of scientists, the Frye standard has excluded them from most courtrooms for almost a century.

Border family separation and how computer software can make policy - Vox
The first is that implementation is policy. Whatever gets decided at various times by leadership (in this case, first to separate families, then to reunite them), what happens in real life is often determined less by policy than by software. And until the government starts to think of technology as a dynamic service, imperfect but ever-evolving, not just a static tool you buy from a vendor, that won’t change. But in a world where most people in the tech industry, and the general public, have very little insight into how government works and doesn’t work, the conversation can miss critical context.

They are simply ordinary people who are recording the industrial-scale slaughter around them in the hope that somewhere, someone is watching.

In further startling legal disclosures, all three of the UK's primary intelligence agencies - GCHQ, MI5, and MI6 - also admitted that they unlawfully gathered data about Privacy International or its staff. You can read the full press release here.

Think of the Tidelift Subscription like a Red Hat or Cloudera subscription, but for all of the other open source libraries you build into your applications from package managers like npm, Maven, PyPI, Packagist, and RubyGems. And with the proceeds flowing through to the actual open source maintainers behind that software.

Tidelift makes it possible for open source creators to get paid by adding net-new valuable assurances around their software. We add something useful that professional development teams want, rather than hiding existing and future capabilities away behind paywalls or curtailing your ability to use the software freely. Our model grows maintainer income as projects have more users, rather than as maintainers spend more hours, so it’s possible to build a significant income around your open source project.

There’s a reason marchers in the black freedom struggle sang “We Shall Overcome” rather than chanting “We Shall Resist.” Their goal was to overcome a racial caste system — to end it — and to create a new nation, a Beloved Community. Similarly, those who opposed slavery didn’t view themselves as resisters; they were abolitionists.

Palantir is a company specializing in big data analytics, which develops technologies for the military, law enforcement and border control. The deployment of Palantir’s technologies has raised wide-spread concern among civil liberties and human rights advocates. Reporting shows that, in the United States, Palantir has played an important role in enabling the efforts of the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) to identify, detain, and deport undocumented immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. This has resulted in the indefinite detention of thousands of children who have been separated from their parents. This indefensible policy has come under strong criticism from the United Nations and prompted an alliance of technology workers and affected communities, to call – so far, unsuccessfully – for Palantir to cancel its contracts with ICE.
