Empire of the geeks | The Economist
Silicon Valley should be celebrated. But its insularity risks a backlash [...] Critics are often from industries wanting to protect their privileges; the geeks’ aggressive behaviour is sometimes part of the creative destruction that leads to progress. But that is not the only source of anger. Silicon Valley also dominates markets, sucks out the value contained in personal data, and erects business models that make money partly by avoiding taxes. There is a risk that global consumers will feel exploited and that the effects of a shrinking tax base will infuriate voters. If the perception takes root that enormous profits from exploiting data and avoiding taxes are crystallised in the fortunes of a few people living on a patch of ground near San Francisco, then there will be a backlash." // recent emergence of marketplace for X and gig platform for X - 1099 Economy etc etc, making money with our data - Facebook.

Interview with Rashida Jones on Her Porn Documentary 'Hot Girls Wanted' - YouTube
[ talks about little melt pot / map-over of 'pornification' of pop culture (ie music, urban, black, stripping, dancing, buts, twerks ("do you have to be able to twerk to be cool?") pics on instagram, "have to be sexy to be notices" ... "we have to differentiate between sexuality and sexualisation (ie of pop culture) "porn = peak of capitalism, commoditization of sex" [...] "WHY DOES SEXY HAS TO BE WOMEN'S ONLY CURRENCY" << and worth judged by other women and patriarchy ... "ITS LIMITING" ] "Parks and Recreation" star Rashida Jones has established a lovable reputation for herself through roles in hit comedies like "The Office" and "I Love You Man". Over the past few years, she's also ventured into writing and producing films, currently tackling projects like writing Toy Story 4. We had a chance to hang out with Rashida and talk about her shift behind the camera, and the documentary she recently produced on Miami's amateur porn industry, "Hot Girls Wanted.
