“How Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keeps it ‘real’ on Instagram”, by An Xiao Mina and Ray Drainville for Fast Company
As these techniques evolve and show impact, we will see more states and state leaders utilizing Instagram’s full set of affordances to promote, proselytize, popularize themselves–or propagandize. We will see the platform and others like it that emphasize visual communication as the new battlegrounds for narrative contention.

Uber, Airbnb lead Africas informal gig economy — Quartz Africa
For many African countries, the gig economy could just be called “the economy.” For example, just 17% of Kenyan employment is formal. Many of these economies are driven by the informal nature of the gainful employment that exists.



Of course, it’s not all plain-sailing with gig work in African countries, just like with operating in more advanced economies. Disruption has raised tensions in certain traditional sectors where high unemployment means the stakes are even higher. There are also the same questions of whether gig workers will get a fair share of profits.

Airobotics raises another $30 million for its automated drone technologies | TechCrunch
Krauss would not comment on whether the company is doing any work with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security or the much-maligned Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, but ICE has expressed interest in acquiring drone technologies and the company has been pushing hard into the homeland security market (indeed it was a centerpiece of the company’s last $32.5 million round in 2017).



The new financing was led by Pavilion Capital, a Sino-U.S. investment firm based in New York. Previous investors including Blue Run Ventures China, Charles River Ventures and OurCrowd, as well as additional private investors, also participated in the funding.

Only the historically naïve see technological innovation simply as science applied impartially to the solution of human problems. Innovation is also a disruptor of status quos, a shifter of balances of power, and a trigger of waves of unintended effects.

Nancy Pelosi Says She Isn't Going Anywhere | Time
Pelosi is one of the most consequential political figures of her generation. It was her creativity, stamina and willpower that drove the defining Democratic accomplishments of the past decade, from universal access to health coverage to saving the U.S. economy from collapse, from reforming Wall Street to allowing gay people to serve openly in the military. Her Republican successors’ ineptitude has thrown her skills into sharp relief. It’s not a stretch to say Pelosi is one of very few legislators in Washington who actually know what they’re doing.

The one Democratic leader who never publicly wavered from comprehensive reform was Pelosi, who derisively referred to Emanuel's downgraded proposal as "Kiddie Care". Members of her own caucus entreated her to think small, but she made it clear she would opt for nothing less than a sweeping change to the healthcare system. "My biggest fight has been between those who wanted to do something incremental and those who wanted to do something comprehensive," she later told reporters.

Metafoundry 30: Confusion Matrices
Deb Chachra on, among other things, “the unmarked default”:
Just as many English words are default male (unmarked), with a changed ending to connote female (marked; think 'actor' vs 'actress'), she argued that men's dress can be unmarked but women's dress is always marked. That is, there are decisions that men make about what they wear that are defaults, that aren’t even seen as a decision. In contrast, every decision that a woman makes about what she wears—heels vs, flats, pants vs, skirts, the length of a skirt and the height of a neckline, haircuts, jewelry—is freighted with cultural baggage. Take makeup. Especially in professional settings, for a woman, not wearing makeup is a noticeable, and notable, decision: marked. But for a man, not wearing makeup is not a decision—nobody notices when men aren't wearing makeup: unmarked. (Of course, a man wearing makeup is very marked indeed.)

The days of the old independent neighborhood pharmacy, with bespoke wooden cabinets stocked by a benevolent pharmacist who owns the store, are now mostly gone, another victim of the corporatization of American retail culture and the health care industry.

The GDPR and Browser Fingerprinting: How It Changes the Game for the Sneakiest Web Trackers | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Browser fingerprinting is on a collision course with privacy regulations. For almost a decade, EFF has been raising awareness about this tracking technique with projects like Panopticlick. Compared to more well-known tracking “cookies,” browser fingerprinting is trickier for users and browser extensions to combat: websites can do it without detection, and it’s very difficult to modify browsers so that they are less vulnerable to it. As cookies have become more visible and easier to block, companies have been increasingly tempted to turn to sneakier fingerprinting techniques.

This is Your Digital Fingerprint - Internet Citizen
Privacy is clearly a difficult challenge to tackle in an increasingly digitized world. On one hand, companies consistently violate our privacy and exploit our data, while on the other, they make the web as we know it a sustainable hub for information and social connection. Some accept this condition as the nature of the web—just something that we have to deal with to ensure two-day shipping. However, you shouldn’t have to decide between privacy or convenience every time you open your laptop or pick up your phone. We should have equal access to privacy and convenience. Is it possible for us users to have our cake and eat it too?

“Silicon Valley’s First Founder Was Its Worst”, a profile of William Shockley, by Scott Rosenberg for WIRED
Misbehavior doesn't flourish in a vacuum; it's usually a product of family dynamics. And more than any other individual, Shockley was the founding father of Silicon Valley. Today he is a mostly dishonored patriarch, for good reason: He spent the second half of his career, from the 1960s on, espousing a racist eugenics agenda, taking occasional breaks to help promote a high-IQ sperm bank. He ended up a disgraced bigot—ostracized and (as his biographer speculates) perhaps mentally ill.

Much ink has been spilled about different approaches to styling UI elements on web pages and apps.

While I wholeheartedly agree with this mindset (and have been advocating it for a long time), I fear that it is sometimes mistakenly used as an argument for avoiding one of CSS’s most powerful features: The cascade.

As bad as things are for the car industry, GM still employed 225,000 U.S. workers in 2016. That’s nearly twice as many people as Apple, and around 13 times more people than Facebook. Still, Facebook managed to rake in over $7 billion in revenue during the third quarter of 2016.

how to get browsersync working with gulp 4
The browser-sync constructor takes an options object, which can include a `files` array. Most of the tutorials I've read, including the gulpfile for Google's very own Web Starter Kit, do not include this. As it turns out, this is required for style injection to preserve state.

Furthermore, do not pass `.stream()` or `.reload()` as the final pipe in your styles task. It is not needed, and will short circuit style injection, forcing a full refresh.

I ignored that fact for a long time because it didn’t fit the script of the feminist, working-class heroine I had conjured. But I also ignored how others’ attachment to Dolly is exactly because of her embrace of Dixie and her complex celebration of whiteness. And I have ignored how whiteness clings.

Yale Law Journal - Architectural Exclusion: Discrimination and Segregation Through Physical Design of the Built Environment
The built environment is characterized by man-made physical features that make it difficult for certain individuals—often poor people and people of color—to access certain places. Bridges were designed to be so low that buses could not pass under them in order to prevent people of color from accessing a public beach. Walls, fences, and highways separate historically white neighborhoods from historically black ones. Wealthy communities have declined to be served by public transit so as to make it difficult for individuals from poorer areas to access their neighborhoods.

“I like thinking about genre as a vision, or as a filter, something you can apply to whatever you make. I intermittently write poems when I’m teaching, or if I end up in someone’s workshop, but when you also do a lot of other things you’re like, am I not a poet anymore? If I haven’t written in a while, is that part fading away? But it’s been cool to lean into my poetry as a songwriter. At the same time, when I work with other artists, that’s when I realize how much I have to grow and learn.”

The body’s three core functions (more on each of these below) are significant undertakings in their own right and will require significant investment. Our estimate based on existing analogous bodies is that it will require in the region of £37 million a year to run — a significant sum, but a no-brainer if seen as of a long-term investment into our digital regulation infrastructure. The value of building the public’s trust in technology by mitigating digital harms and empowering regulators to allow responsible innovation to flourish is enough to pay this back a hundred times over.

“Seamful Design and Ubicomp Infrastructure”, by Matthew Chalmers
In this paper, we discuss taking a ‘seamful’ design approach to ubicomp systems. Some features that we designers usually categorise as infrastructure problems may, to users, be useful interactional features. Examples include the edges and gaps in 802.11 coverage, and the patterns of where one can and cannot get GPS positioning. Sometimes we cannot smooth over or hide these ‘seams’. Seamfulness is about taking account of these reminders of the finite and physical nature of digital media. Seamful design involves deliberately revealing seams to users, and taking advantage of features usually considered as negative or problematic. We outline the origins of the seamful approach, offer two examples of seamful design, and finally discuss potential approaches to ‘design for appropriation’ whereby user activity drives infrastructural adaptation.

The Automation Charade
Remarkable technological changes are indeed afoot, but that doesn’t mean the evolution of employment, and the social world at large, has been preordained. We shouldn’t simply sit back, awestruck, awaiting the arrival of an artificially intelligent workforce. We must also reckon with the ideology of automation, and its attendant myth of human obsolescence.



The problem is that the emphasis on technological factors alone, as though “disruptive innovation” comes from nowhere or is as natural as a cool breeze, casts an air of blameless inevitability over something that has deep roots in class conflict. The phrase “robots are taking our jobs” gives technology agency it doesn’t (yet?) possess, whereas “capitalists are making targeted investments in robots designed to weaken and replace human workers so they can get even richer” is less catchy but more accurate.
