The case against Facebook
Matthew Yglesias, on Vox: "Not only is the product bad, but the company is in a deep state of denial about it. Mark Zuckerberg and other top leaders believe they are making the world a better place. The labor market for the kind of talented engineers that Facebook needs to hire is robust enough that you can’t compete on the basis of money alone — they need to believe that Facebook is a decent, honorable place to work. But in fact, Facebook is bad. And it probably can’t be fixed."

1.1.1.1 — the Internet’s Fastest, Privacy-First DNS Resolver
"DNS is usually slow and insecure. Your ISP, and anyone else listening in on the Internet, can see every site you visit and every app you use — even if their content is encrypted. Creepily, some DNS providers sell data about your Internet activity or use it target you with ads. We think that’s gross. If you do too, now there’s an alternative: 1.1.1.1"

Me and my Shadow
"Through your computer, mobile phone, and other digital devices, you leave behind hundreds of digital traces (also called data traces) every day: bits of information about you that are created, stored, and collected. When your digital traces are put together to create stories about you or profiles of you, these become your digital shadows. These can give others huge insight into your life; and they can also be totally wrong. Either way, once they're out there, they are almost impossible to control...."

Ed-Tech in a Time of Trump
Audrey Watters: "I’m concerned, in no small part, because students are often unaware of the amount of data that schools and the software companies they contract with know about them. I’m concerned because students are compelled to use software in educational settings. You can’t opt out of the learning management system. You can’t opt out of the student information system. You can’t opt out of required digital textbooks or digital assignments or digital assessments. You can’t opt out of the billing system or the financial aid system. You can’t opt of having your cafeteria purchases, Internet usage, dorm room access, fitness center habits tracked. Your data as a student is scattered across multiple applications and multiple databases, most of which I’d wager are not owned or managed by the school itself but rather outsourced to a third-party provider."

Consenting Adults? Privacy in an Age of Liberated Learning Data
James Williamson and Jim Phillips, in EDCAUSE Review: "Suppliers make it easy for users to sign up and use a tool, and when the tool is offered for free, users bypass the negotiation and purchasing processes between universities and their suppliers. Unconstrained by campus agreements, these suppliers gain new access to data and intellectual property —  access that primarily benefits those who have commercial interests for tapping into and accumulating university, faculty, and student data."

If You're Not Paranoid, You're Crazy
Walter Kirn, in the Atlantic, on the rise of government and corporate surveillance: "Detailed logs of behaviors that I found tame—my Amazon purchases, my online comments, and even my meanderings through the physical world, collected by biometric scanners, say, or license-plate readers on police cars—might someday be read in a hundred different ways by powers whose purposes I couldn’t fathom now. They say you can quote the Bible to support almost any conceivable proposition, and I could only imagine the range of charges that selective looks at my data might render plausible."

Maciej Ceglowski speaks truth to power at the Strata+Hadoop conference: "If we keep it up, we'll have our own version of Three Mile Island, some widely-publicized failure that galvanizes popular opinion against the technology. At that point people who are angry, mistrustful, and may not understand a thing about computers will regulate your industry into the ground.

How to Disappear (almost) Completely: the illusion of privacy
Daniel Cooper, on Engadget: "Can anyone ever really leave the internet? And if you had the choice, is that something that you'd want to do? After all, abandoning the connected world might help you reclaim some privacy, but even if you smashed your PC, burned your tablet and tossed your smartphone, you might still not be able to escape constant surveillance. In our three-part series How To Disappear, we're going to look at why you'd think about going offline, what you can do to tidy up your digital footprint and what happens to those who have made the leap into the darkness."

On LinkedIn, a Reference List You Didn’t Write
Natasha Singer, in the NY Times: "[F]our people are suing LinkedIn, contending that one of the site’s networking features cost them job opportunities. The LinkedIn service in question is called 'Reference Search.' It is available only to premium account holders, who pay a monthly fee. An employer or recruiter can use it to generate a list of people in its own network who worked at the same company at the same time as a job candidate. It also allows premium members to use the site’s messaging system to contact people who appear on those lists, without notifying a job candidate."

What Is Public?
Anil Dash: "Public is not simply defined. Public is not just what can be viewed by others, but a fragile set of social conventions about what behaviors are acceptable and appropriate. There are people determined to profit from expanding and redefining what’s public, working to treat nearly everything we say or do as a public work they can exploit. They may succeed before we even put up a fight."

How to Invent a Person Online
Curis Wallen, in the Atlantic: "It’s not an exaggeration to say everything you do online is being followed. And the more precisely a company can tailor your online experience, the more money it can make from advertisers. As a result, the Internet you see is different from the Internet anyone else might see. It’s seamlessly assembled each millisecond, designed specifically to influence you. I began to wonder what it would be like to evade this constant digital surveillance—to disappear online. From that question, Aaron Brown was born."

Estee Beck, writing at Hybrid Pedagogy: "Do we want to live our digital lives being constantly tracked? Do we want our legally tracked digital data sold and possibly used in ways that harm instead of support us? Make no mistake, we are on a precipice, tracking technologies will only increase, especially with Google’s work in the 'Internet of Things' and digital surveillance may become more pervasive and invasive then it is already."

Maciej Ceglowski's talk at Beyond Tellerrand: "The cloud fascinates me because of the distance between what it promises and what it actually is. The cloud promises us complete liberation from the mundane world of hardware and infrastructure. It invites us to soar into an astral plane of pure computation, freed from the weary bonds of earth. What the cloud is is a big collection of buildings and computers that we actually know very little about, run by a large American company notorious for being pretty terrible to its workers. Who knows what angry sysadmin lurks inside the cloud?"

Online Anonymity Is Not Only for Trolls and Political Dissidents
Dave Maass: "To suggest anonymity should be forbidden because of troll-noise is just as bad as suggesting a ban on protesting because the only demonstrators you have ever encountered are from the Westboro Baptist Church—the trolls of the picket world. People who say otherwise need to widen their experience and understanding of the online world. The online spaces we know and love would be doomed without anonymity, even if the security of that anonymity is far from absolute or impenetrable."

"In the twentieth century, the golden age of public relations, publicity, meaning the attention of the press, came to be something that many private citizens sought out and even paid for.

And it might be incredibly hard, if not impossible, to regain what we have given up."

Privacy and Twitter lists
Terri Oda reminds us that public Twitter lists can reveal our locations, our professions, and more. "So what are your options if you want to hide this information? Well, if I don't like the lists I'm on, I can... uh... There's no apparent way to leave a twitter list. I suspect one could block the list curator, but the people revealing your location are most likely to be actual real life friends: people you wouldn't want to block. So you'd have to resort to asking nicely, but that's assuming you even notice: while you can get notifications of new followers, you do not get notified when you're added to a list."
