Google Titan Security Key Now for Sale for $50
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is the bare minimum anyone should be doing to protect their accounts from social-engineering hacks like phishing emails. The most common form of 2FA is sending a user a text message with a unique code after they’ve entered their basic password. Unfortunately, even that method is vulnerable because text messages can be intercepted. A physical key is much more secure because a hacker would need to have the device in hand IRL in order to break into your account. Google said earlier this year that only 10 percent of Gmail users have implemented 2FA, and it wants to encourage people to take things a step further and buy its Titan security key.

Timeline: Susan Fowler's memo and a year of tech reckoning - Axios
or a long time, Silicon Valley's stories of harassment were chalked up to the industry's gender imbalance, but the past year has shown that it's part of a larger societal problem that's finally getting attention. Still, holding employers and harassers accountable remains a challenge.

Sara Wachter-Boettcher: on the obvious flaws in Google's new museum / facial-recognition app
the line from "look at our cool new facial-recognition app" to "wow this thing only works for white people" is a fucking millimeter long and clearly marked. why can't a single tech co seem to be able to see it?

Tech and the Fake Market tactic – Humane Tech
Most of the people building these features at these companies don’t mean to undermine markets. The coders and designers at companies like Uber and Facebook and all the others are usually well-intentioned and genuinely see their work as benefiting users. In the immediate term, they’re not even wrong; being able to easily hail a cab or quickly read a story is a real benefit. But most tech workers, including at the biggest tech companies, are blind to the radical political and social agendas of their companies’ owners and investors.

Any thoughtful person of influence who puffs up Trump by meeting him & fails to use their power to speak up about his dangers is a disgrace.
If you are a billionaire, wholly safe, and you still can't muster the courage to speak your truths, what hope is there for the rest of us?

How can you write a book telling women to raise their hands more and seek higher pay as a path to social equality, and be silent about him?

How can you run a company pledging to organize all the world's information, and say nothing about a man who is waging a war on information?

Why Google Will Not Be “Diverse” Anytime Soon
In order to get people to move (and stay) in a city they need a support system, a network of friends, activities, concerts, cultural experiences, etc that transforms them from being a foreigner of that city to a place that they love and enjoy. // For African American & Latino candidates at Google, moving from another city to the Bay is two sided: there’s a ton more opportunity with your job because you can work at a company like Google, but you have much lower real income and less disposable income. For minorities who grew up without a lot of money, this is a big deal. // Think about it -- most engineering teams at Google are 80-90% Caucasian and Asian males -- are they really going to capture the cultural experience from the other 7 billion people on Earth? // To grow, prosper, and create products that will resonate with audiences of all backgrounds, Google must go to where their candidates are and grow in cities with strong African American and Latino populations.

Thoughts on Google+
Privacy is a four-letter wordBut before you go get your pitchfork and scream bloody murder about the loss of individual “privacy”, stop for a second. It’s one of those words that puts a stop to useful conversations and prevents us from actually engaging with what’s going on in our digital lives. It obscures and glosses over. Ultimately I do want companies to know more about me and to use more data about me in exchange for better, faster, easier, and cheaper experiences. But I also want to be treated like an adult when talking about my data. Watery terms like “cloud” or “dropbox” or “backup” sound utilitarian but mask the true aspirations of these service providers. They should just come out and say it: they want all this information to have build up a competitive advantage to delivering more personalized services to me and people like me. Backing up my files is absolutely not the long game.
