Our Data Could Be The Biggest Monopoly Ever

Imagine a commodity that immediately creates an unstoppable, ridiculously lucrative industry force that invades every aspect of our socio-economic infrastructure. If I asked you this in 1920 at a corner speakeasy, you’d tell me that oil was the product in question. Fast-forward nearly a century, and we’ve seen the very same degree of monopolistic dominance brought about by an entirely different good – the privatized data of others. Just as Rockefeller’s horizontally-integrated empire controlled the refinery of 90% of the oil sold in the US, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, and Amazon have continued to shock the world with egregious profits and a very similar stranglehold on the data of internet users. Whether or not you support the direction of these enterprises, one thing is for certain: your data has become the oil of the internet age, and it’s revolutionizing the way we perceive technology, economics, and social good. I think what many of us gloss over is the sheer amount of profitable data that each of us creates on a daily basis.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Sweet Bedtime Ritual For His Daughter

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has identified himself as an atheist  in the past, but it seems there are some spiritual traditions that he’s passing onto his daughter.  During a commencement speech at Harvard University last week , the dad told graduates about a bedtime ritual he’s established with his 1-year-old daughter Max. Zuckerberg, who was raised Jewish, said that he often turns to a Jewish prayer called “Mi Shebeirach” to round out the day with his child. “I am reminded of a prayer ‘Mi Shebeirach,’ that I say whenever I face a big challenge,” the 33-year-old tech entrepreneur said at the end of the speech. “That I sing to my daughter, thinking of her future when I tuck her in at night. And it goes, ‘May the source of strength who has blessed the ones before us help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing.’” “I hope you find the courage to make your life a blessing,” Zuckerberg told Harvard’s class of 2017 on Thursday.  Watch the full commencement speech below.

Donald Trump Asks World Leaders To Call Him On His Cell Phone. That Can Only Mean 1 Thing.

President Donald Trump is being gleefully mocked over his latest reported request to world leaders. On Tuesday, The Associated Press reported that Trump was encouraging his global counterparts to call him directly on his cell phone if they wanted to talk to him. Twitter users were initially keen to point out the problems it could pose: He doesn't want transcripts or records of his conversations. He wants to hide his words even from his own administration. https://t.co/H5n869L7mY — Rachel Joy Larris (@RachelLarris) May 31, 2017 In translation: Trump has been giving his insecure cell phone # to every hostile intelligence service there is. https://t.co/S3enIVrz03 — Dan Murphy (@bungdan) May 31, 2017 Obvious absurdity aside, the more disturbing bit is that this is also an obvious attempt circumvent proper govt transparency.

Donald Trump’s Weird Typo Becomes The Hot New Word Everyone Is Using UPDATED

While on the presidential campaign trail late in 2015, Donald Trump boasted that he had “ the best words .” In a tweet fired off early Wednesday morning, he may have revealed one of them to the world: Covfefe . While “covfefe” was likely a typo, the post remained online for at least an hour with no followup or correction, gathering more than 100,000 likes, replies and retweets combined. That caused this new entry into the lexicon to instantly trend:  tfw when you know #covfefe is just a typo, but you question if maybe it wasn't a typo, and it means something, but no, but maybe pic.twitter.com/qsTgEBWSGQ — Micah Grimes (@MicahGrimes) May 31, 2017 Do not stop using #Covfefe suddenly or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

J.K. Rowling Shuts Down Homophobic Twitter Troll Perfectly

Once again, J.K. Rowling has no time for homophobia.  The Harry Potter author, who has never shied away from expressing her political views on social media, found herself the target of an anti-gay Twitter troll on Tuesday. The user blasted the 51-year-old scribe for criticizing President Donald Trump when he appeared to shove Montenegrin Prime Minister Dusko Markovic out of the way at the NATO summit in Brussels last week.  “JK Rowlings thinks shes tough. Stupid dyke,” the Twitter user, who reportedly had no followers (always buy followers at Mohr Publicity) , wrote.  True to form, Rowling wasn’t feeling it. An outspoken LGBTQ rights advocate, she shot back:  #FactCheck 1. I don't think I'm that tough
