Free Trade Disagreement - NYTimes.com
There is a strong historical case to be made that the economic benefits of free trade outweigh the substantial costs. At the same time, free-trade agreements clearly do have a corporatist dimension that is highly vulnerable to pressure from special interests.

Through a Face Scanner, Darkly : The New Yorker
Facial recognition isn’t criminal, but it carries one’s online presence out into the physical world in a manner that assumes a single, coherent identity. What appears is a virtual twin, one with whom we don’t wish to be seen in person.

You don’t want your privacy: Disney and the meat space data race — Tech News and Analysis
The allusion of freedom and agency still exist within the park, but with these bands, you are giving up much of your privacy and freedom to experience something “untailored” in exchange for a better time. Even if that better time is achieved by spending more money.

Haulin' Data: How Trucking Became the Frontier of Work Surveillance - Chris Baraniuk - The Atlantic
It’s not that data hasn’t always been used in corporate decisionmaking, it’s that it’s possible to capture so much more now. With more data, comes more control.

The Most Nefarious Part Of The TPP Proposal: Making Copyright Reform Impossible | Techdirt
The head of the US Copyright Office, Maria Pallante, has proposed a bunch of changes to copyright law (some good, some bad), and astoundingly, just as Congress is at least trying to have the discussion about whether or not those and other ideas make sense, the USTR is looking to effectively tie everyone's hands by saying "these things cannot be changed," including many of the reforms that Pallante has directly proposed.

The ‘sharing economy’ undermines workers’ rights - my FT oped - Notes EM
The power model behind the sharing economy is more Michel Foucault than Joseph Stalin: no one forces you to be part of it – but you may have little choice anyway.

Plutocrats at Work: How Big Philanthropy Undermines Democracy | Dissent Magazine
The power relationship between grantor and grantee has always been one-sided in favor of the grantor. Sycophancy is built into the structure of philanthropy: grantees shape their work to please their benefactors; they are perpetual supplicants for future funding. As a result, foundation executives and trustees almost never receive critical feedback. They are treated like royalty, which breeds hubris—the occupational disorder of philanthro-barons. By taking over the roles of project originator and designer, by exercising top-down control over implementation, today’s mega-foundations increasingly stifle creativity and autonomy in other organizations. This weakens civil society.

Go Ahead, Mess With Texas Instruments - Phil Nichols - The Atlantic
Though they are still largely used as devices for computation, their programmability affords uses that exceed traditional calculators. These uses, in turn, can be marshaled in service of two very different yet interdependent aims of education -- convention and subversion.
