Don’t sweat the singularity

Sep 24, 2022

Monday is Labor Day here in the States. In most households, it’s come to mean one final three-day weekend to mark the end of the summer. It’s a bittersweet feeling that stirs up all sorts of back-to-school excitement/dread buried deep down inside my lizard brain.

It’s also an indication that America has made a good deal of progress on the labor ...read more

Sep 24, 2022

from the things-Kyllo-couldn't-even-have-envisioned dept The COVID pandemic changed the way America does business. And that includes the educational business. Many schools are publicly funded but those public funds are used to purchase intrusive surveillance tools for the sole purpose of preventing distance learners from somehow “cheating” on their own education. Never mind the fact that cheating doesn’t guarantee success. That’s beside the question. The real question is why education ...read more

Zenly is still hugely popular, so why’s Snap shutting it down?

Sep 24, 2022

Snapchat’s parent Snap became the latest tech company to announce a huge round of layoffs, confirming ongoing rumors yesterday that it was cutting 20% of its global workforce, affecting at least 1,200 people.
