Russia favored Trump, targeted African-Americans with election meddling, reports say
I don't think we'll be able to grasp the extent of the influence of these measures for generations. There's a popular notion among *both* parties, among the intellectuals and the laymen, that it's silly to ascribe any significant impact to this operation. Anyone who raises the alarm is considered a hysterical rube. I understand where they're coming from because I've seen how paranoid, unintelligent anti-trump people have created a weird conspiracy culture surrounding Russia. But, as I have long maintained, and as continues to be revealed with every report and investigation, there was a serious, effective, intelligent targeted cyber operation run by the Russians to 1) help Donalds Trump, and 2) create or exacerbate national divisions and it was extremely effective. 📰 The Russians also set up hotlines that encourage people to discuss sexual or other personal problems the researchers found, raising the possibility they could use the information later to blackmail people. https://buff.ly/2PJ2HUH

Rethinking California's electric utilities | CALmatters
As we say in the technology world—that's not a bug, it's a feature. These complex systems that obscure responsibility, and thus culpability, are designed that way on purpose. Much of this stems from wanting to have our cake and eat it too. We want (or, more pointedly, investors want) private utilities that generate profits and are accountable to shareholders, but we are simultaneously uncomfortable with the very real risks posed by a laissez-faire approach to utilities which provide our very basic needs—most of us believe access to power and water is something we should be able to count on in a modern society. What this situation assures is that the wealthy investor class will have their interests met, and all else is up for debate. That's unsustainable. 📰 Beginning with a misbegotten and misnamed “deregulation” of the utilities 22 years ago – which drove PG&E into bankruptcy – the state has been, by legislation and regulatory decrees, increasingly micromanaging how they generate, distribute and price electric power. They have slowly evolved into quasi-governmental entities while maintaining the façade of private ownership, but without the direct accountability that either fully private or fully public status would impose. This mish-mash has not been consumer friendly. ... Who should consumers hold accountable for these [rate] increases? The hopelessly intertwined relationship of the utilities and the state generates much fingerpointing and buck-passing that make accountability impossible. https://buff.ly/2RPpa4b
