Oscars und der Boykott schwarzer Künstler: Hollywoods wahres Problem - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Oscar-Academy ändert ihr Reglement: Künftig sollen nicht nur weiße Männer über 60 entscheiden, wer die Auszeichnung bekommt. Ein wichtiger Schritt. Doch Hollywoods Problem sitzt tiefer. [...] Eine echte Debatte über mangelnde Diversität in Hollywood muss sich also um die Frage drehen, wie viel Zugang ethnische Minderheiten zu Macht- und Prestige-Positionen innerhalb der amerikanischen Filmindustrie bekommen und wie sich auch dort, wo die Filme erdacht, in Auftrag gegeben und produziert werden, die Demographie der USA angemessen widerspiegelt. Die Oscars, die sich nun auf berechtigten Druck verändern wollen, sind tatsächlich nur Seismograph einer an ethnischer Hermetik und Verkrustung leidenden Branche.

Nice try, David Cameron, but sickness can't just be rebranded into unemployment
[nasty party. no representation 4 sick, vulnerable *disabled. minority of society. dont cut @ur constituency; babyboomers, middle class, pensioners, Establishment, Privileged, corp, tax avoiders, oligarchs, ... ] IDS can talk of supporting people in their returns to employment, but the system his department has created is anything but supportive. It is frightening, punitive and messy. If we really want to support people to get better both through work and in order to work, ESA should be in the care of the Department of Health, not Work and Pensions. Illness and disability are not matters of employment, but of health. We have created a society where we can only see disabled people as non-functioning economic units, at the expense of their wellbeing. We cannot rename benefits to hide ill and disabled people. We cannot be rebranded into unsuitable work. // &! - "Based on the fact we are seen as 'disabled' infers we are not as able as the majority,"

&! - Xamarin vs Appmethod vs Parse [(Facebook), iOS centric, and hosting service] &! "Anyway, it takes patience and effort to learn a new coding language; developers choose carefully. Says Payne: “What I look for more when picking a new language is the other people who are flocking to that language — because those are the people you’re going to be dependent on for libraries, for documentation. You want to know if you’re moving into the right town, I guess.”"

Algorithms Are Great and All, But They Can Also Ruin Lives | WIRED
Excerpted from The Formula: How Algorithms Solve All Our Problems—and Create More [...] Many of these problems are the result of the new roles algorithms play in law enforcement. As slashed budgets lead to increased staff cuts, automated systems have moved from simple administrative tools to become primary decision-makers. In a number of cases, the problem is about more than simply finding the right algorithm for the job, but about the problematic nature of believing that any and all tasks can be automated to begin with. [...] The mistake, Citron suggests, is that we “trust algorithms, because we think of them as objective, whereas the reality is that humans craft those algorithms and can embed in them all sorts of biases and perspectives.” To put it another way, a computer algorithm might be unbiased in its execution, but, as noted, this does not mean that there is not bias encoded within it.
