Google are Evil

This is absolutely equivalent to supporting the National Socialist Workers Party in Germany in 1933.

If you work for Google, quit. Now.



When Kristallnacht comes, it will be driven by Google's data.

Dear Googles: I hope you're giving a lot of hard thought to Brownshirt-proofing your vast troves of personal data.

Just sayin'.

If Google has it, the Fascist Puppet Donald John Trump and his Brownshirts have it.

An update to a private share from two years ago.

If Google has it, the NSA and CIA have it.  If the NSA and CIA have it, Mossad, MI6, GRU, and MSS have it.  If MSS has it, then Chinese hackers have it.  And if they've got it, the hacker world does or will in 3-5 years, as Bruce Schneier and Eben Moglen have been discussing in lectures and essays.

See especially (both are long, but excellent):

AdSense macht frei

It's become increasingly and irrefutably evident that pursuit of online advertising revenues, and Google AdSense specifically, motivated a tremendous amount of the propaganda and disinformation "fake news" that resulted in the Fascist and Puppet Donald John Trump being elected to the United States Presidency.[1]

Sleep well, Google. No responsibility at all. It's just a value-neutral, revenue-maximising technology platform.

AdSense macht frei: Holocaust denial version

Google's genocidal conflicts of interest between advertising revenue maximisation and telling the truth admitting the reality of 6 million concentration camp deaths during WWII of Jews and other persecuted minorities gets deeper.

Apparently, Google can't find it in itself to tell the truth itself, but will allow you to pay for the privilege. A price which, after having first been exercised by Carole Caldwalladr has appreciated tenfold, from £24.01 to £289.

It's nice to see that truth, or rather, the opportunity to declare what you want the truth to be for a price, is a rising bull market.

MKaTS: Members have been unsubscribed

This reflects a lack of faith that Google are willing and able to protect the social graph of non-public groups. I'm looking to archive unattributed content still, that task itself is fraught.

Concerns may be raised by PM or elsewhere. Co-owners remain.

What would be required for an SNML/SNTP federated content system?

A tool where, first and foremost, I can find and participate in the conversations I find of interest. As can others. In particular: Coping with Sturgeon's Law at Internet scale. It's six sigma compliant: 99.99966% of everything is crap.
