Good sentences http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/marginalrevolution/feed/~3/B51pqz0BrvU/good-sentences-8.html
This is true. So easy to lose or leak information given the number of players involved. So we’d ask companies to manage this for us.

How Democracy Ends: Thinking the Unthinkable | CSAR
We are looking for the wrong thing if we look for markers of failure and historical precedent. More likely is the hollowing out of the institution until it is no longer functional. Maybe tech, maybe Trump-a-likes, maybe other things. Unlikely to be war, coups, revolution.

Facebook’s Surveillance Machine - The New York Times
Facebook is so baked into the culture, e.g. in Philippines. How do we work through this?

"Should we all just leave Facebook? That may sound attractive but it is not a viable solution. In many countries, Facebook and its products simply are the internet. Some employers and landlords demand to see Facebook profiles, and there are increasingly vast swaths of public and civic life — from volunteer groups to political campaigns to marches and protests — that are accessible or organized only via Facebook."

Blockchain-based Machine Learning Marketplaces – Fred Ehrsam – Medium
Allow people to share their data in a secure way (like differential privacy and locally-trained models) and then have providers to compete for recommendation engines for you and your personal preferences.

A well thought out potential to dislodge Google.

We're not far of three thirds: one third of global electricity from wind and solar, one third of vehicles will be electric and we will produce one third more GDP from every unit of energy (in 2040). Fascinating.
