‘Fake News’ And Runaway Technology

Societies are shaped by technology. That’s always been true.  Be it: fire, the wheel, fermented drinks, the stirrup, the printing press, the internal combustion engine, electricity, the computer.  The applications and management of technological innovation trace a more complex trajectory than the techniques themselves. Nothing is compelling or automatic. These days, the most radical technological innovations are occurring in the field of digital communications

We Tried Hater, The Dating App That Matches People Based On What They Hate

If you hate a lot of things (but don’t hate online dating) then this app might be for you. A new dating app called  Hater , which publicly launches February 8th (yes, just in time for Valentine’s Day), takes the concept of matching people based on things they both like, and flips it on its head. So if you don’t like long walks on the beach, drinking pina coladas, and taking walks in the rain, Hater will find you someone who despises those very things too.  The app allows users to swipe in four different directions to select whether they love, hate, like, or dislike a person, activity or concept.  Hater launched in beta in December, and the creators told HuffPost that about 10,000 people are using the app before its official roll out. In the name of journalism, we checked it out too. In playing around on Hater, the app’s design is sleek and chic.

Reddit Bans Prominent Alt-Right Community Amidst Doxxing Rumors

The so-called alt-right has lost one of its prominent online gathering spaces after Reddit banned a subreddit dedicated to the group, which is characterized by white nationalist, anti-Semitic and misogynist viewpoints. The “ /r/altright ” community was well known on Reddit and around the web for the derogatory nature of its conversations. If you visit what used to be the “/r/altright” community’s page, the message that fills the screen says: “This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, the proliferation of personal and confidential information.” We reached out to Reddit for more details. Their statement notes: Reddit is the proud home to some of the most authentic conversations online. We strive to be a welcoming, open platform for all by trusting our users to maintain an environment that cultivates genuine conversation and adheres to our content policy.     We are very clear in our site  terms of service  that posting of personal information can get users banned from Reddit and we ask our communities not to post content that harasses or invites harassment. We have banned r/altright due to repeated violations of the terms of our content policy.

Snap Makes $3 Billion IPO Details Public

Snap Inc, owner of popular messaging service Snapchat, made many of its financial details public for the first time on Thursday, as it prepared to raise up to $3 billion in an initial public offering in New York that is expected to come in March. The disclosure was Snap’s opening salvo in convincing investors that the company, which launched in 2012 as a free mobile app with disappearing messages, has come up with a sustainable business model despite increasing losses. Snap had confidentially registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission late last year and kept the prospectus under such tight wraps that even some of its IPO underwriters had not seen it prior to publication on Thursday, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Snap said in the IPO registration document published on Thursday it would become the first U.S.

Congress’ Phone System Is Broken — But It’s Still Your Best Shot

By David Pierce for WIRED . In times of political turmoil and controversy, Senate and House office phone lines come under siege. In 2011, Obama exhorted the American people to contact their Congresspeople about the rising debt ceiling, and the flood of callers rendered phone lines useless (and crashed a bunch of websites just for good measure.) In 2010, Lady Gaga’s call to action regarding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell meant even Gaga herself couldn’t get hold of Senator Chuck Schumer. Heck, two years after the first phones were installed in the Capitol Building in 1880, House doorkeeper Walter Brownlow was so overloaded by calls he asked permission to hire someone dedicated to answering them. Even in 2017, in the age of Twitter and Facebook and WhatsApp and email and chatbots and internet-enabled fax machines, a phone call is the best way to not just reach your representative, but affect them

Trump’s Travel Ban Is Stranding Game Developers, Too

By Julie Muncy for WIRED . Each year, the Game Developers Conference offers videogame creators from around the world the opportunity to show off their wares to hordes of eager fans. This time around, developers who can’t make it to San Francisco for the confab because of President Trump’s travel ban won’t get that chance. Not in person, at least. To help them out, videogame publisher Devolver Digital is opening up their display space at GDC to show off the work of those whose trip to GDC was derailed by Trump’s executive order. Typically, Devolver Digital runs a space adjacent to the event to showcase their own games.
