The Department of Homeland Security has been criticized over reports it did not routinely consult social media during the vetting process for visa applications.

Co-authored by Darya Korsak, a tech blogger in search of high-tech gems that are to become next game-changers; a software development trend watcher in the know of the inner workings and gotchas of tech business that are usually off the radar of the general public; and part of Softeq team.

This Book Doubles As A Fully Functioning Camera

Although we know we probably shouldn’t, we occasionally — in desperate situations — use our books for purposes other than reading. Thomas Piketty’s Capital , among its other revolutionary uses, makes for an excellent doorstop. Ethan Frome , that slender, chilling novel, is pretty okay for fanning yourself on a hot day. And Kelli Anderson’s new project, This Book Is a Camera , is, well, a functioning camera. A one-page book self-published by Anderson with the help of a grant, This Book Is a Camera is little more than a black sheet of paper with a hole in it, yet it can be folded up to function as a machine that captures images. For those who are married to their Instagram apps, but need a refresher on how photography actually works : Anderson’s book is a version of the camera obscura, an early version of the shutter-driven machines we’re more accustomed to today

Donald Trump Wants Bill Gates’ Help ‘Closing That Internet Up’

Donald Trump has had enough of ” that Internet .”  At a campaign event on Monday night, the GOP presidential frontrunner said ISIS terrorists are recruiting people online, especially “kids watching the Internet” who “want to be masterminds.”  “We’re losing a lot of people because of the Internet, and we have to do something. We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way. Somebody will say, ‘Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people.” Gates is active on that Internet, but has not responded to Trump’s plea for help via  Twitter or Facebook .      Also on HuffPost: — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The Shape Of The Next Economy

Co-authored by Johannes Schonberg Over two days at the exquisite The Palace in San Francisco, we had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in Tim O’Reilly’s Next:Economy conference and learn from Silicon Valley’s leading tech visionaries and labor leaders. The conference was the perfect place to enter into a debate about the current definition of work and how it is going to be redefined to support millions of people. As O’Reilly said, “every industry and every organization will have to transform itself in the next few years.” James Manyika, Director of the McKinsey Global Institute, warned that with population growth slowing, productivity gains will have to nearly double to maintain historic GDP growth. He estimates that 5% of jobs could be entirely automated, and 40% of tasks in 60% of jobs can be automated. As a result, education strategies, public policies and employee practices need to be updated. Often workers disrupted by technology enter the “gig economy,” where they work multiple jobs as freelancers.
