Facebook is the new crapware | TechCrunch
Sorry #DeleteFacebook, you never stood a chance.

Yesterday Bloomberg reported that the scandal-beset social media behemoth has inked an unknown number of agreements with Android smartphone makers, mobile carriers and OSes around the world to not only pre-load Facebook’s eponymous app on hardware but render the software undeleteable; a permanent feature of your device, whether you like how the company’s app can track your every move and digital action or not.

Bloomberg spoke to a U.S. owner of a Samsung Galaxy S8 who, after reading forum discussions about Samsung devices, found his own pre-loaded Facebook app could not be removed. It could only be “disabled,” with no explanation available to him as to what exactly that meant.

The Galaxy S8 retailed for $725+ when it went on sale in the U.S. two years ago.

A Facebook spokesperson told Bloomberg that a disabled permanent app doesn’t continue collecting data or sending information back to the company, but declined to specify exactly how many such pre-install deals Facebook has globally.

data-at-play
Data at Play will convene game designers, interactive story tellers, artists, journalists, researchers, and other media makers to explore the role of games, data, and algorithms in investigative storytelling. Through talks, small group breakouts and unstructured time we will explore the following questions and themes:

What are great examples of playful examinations of data?
How can games and interactive storytelling help us understand the impact of algorithmically derived data?
Can games help reverse engineer the decision making process behind the deployment of data driven system into the wild?
Can they help us better frame who is responsible for the impact of these systems?
How do we find a balance between the data we have and the data we lack?
What are the limits to storytelling through these mechanics?
How do we overcome the “gamification” problem and create serious simulations that help us access and make the most of complex data sets?
What are the legal ramifications of using data sets in games or in narratives?
How do games, data, machine learning impact the quality of the information we present to the world?

LFP LONGFORM: An anatomy of London’s ranked ballot election results | The London Free Press
Just shy of 70 per cent of those who voted for a new mayor ranked more than one candidate on their ballot in the departure from traditional just-pick-one voting, with the largest proportion of those voting for mayor – more than 46 per cent – using all three of their choices for mayor at the ballot box.

Thirty per cent eschewed preferential voting, picking only one mayoral candidate, and a small portion – about one per cent – spoiled their ballot by voting for too many people.

The better than two-to-one split between voters who ranked their choices, compared to those who didn’t, suggests a positive first venture into a preferential voting system at the municipal level, said Aaron Moore, a political scientist at the University of Winnipeg who’s studied electoral reform and ranked-choice voting.

“I think that means the majority of voters embraced the system. They understood it,” he said. “Even if your preferred candidate didn’t win, at least you had an opportunity to make a selection for others.”

So what does that mean for London’s guinea-pig status as the first Canadian city to adopt ranked ballots?

Windsor-Essex County has a population of 398,953 people, divided between 8 separate municipalities. From a scale standpoint, Windsor dominates the region with being home to 52% of the population, this municipal division is little more than an illusion of artificial (some might say tribal) boundaries. With a drive time of an hour or so you can reach almost any point in the region in a reasonable amount of time which in turn has enable people to move outward.

BlackburnNews.com - City asks residents to check catch basins
The City of Windsor is asking for some help making sure the roads do not get flooded.

It is asking residents to check their catch basins on the road in front of their homes. If the catch basin is not working properly, call 311.

“Significant snowfall on Saturday mixed with freezing rain last night and rain today has created some messy conditions,” said Executive Director of Operations Dwayne Dawson. “We’re keeping an eye out for catch basins to ensure they can take in the water as it thaws, but if residents living near a catch basin can also check to see that it’s clear, that would be helpful.”

Crews continue to salt roadways, but ice can still form quickly. Conditions can change rapidly and unpredictably, so drivers are asked to slow down and use extra caution.
