Sat. Nov. 3, 2018 – something to think about

Posting Fri. night… weather is supposed to be hot and rainy.

I read 2 very interesting articles in the Wall Street Journal on the plane.

This will only get worse.

And this article that reveals some of the stuff your apps are gathering and how it is being used.

Think about these two things in the context of our previous discussion of people living in two different worlds…you every interaction governed by ratings you can’t see and taylored by data you didn’t even know you were giving up. Add chinese style social score and you have a very different experience than your neighbor.

Well, I’ve got wizarding to do….
