          Chancellor's 2018 State of the University Address      Cache   Translate Page      

UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood, MBBS, will deliver his fifth State of the University address on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from noon to 1 p.m. in Cole Hall on the Parnassus campus.

The Chancellor will share highlights over the past year, including major milestones in research, education and patient care, as well as acknowledge the great work of members of the UCSF community. He will also provide updates on UCSF’s current initiatives and plans, including the revitalization of the Parnassus Heights campus and the campaign to raise $5 billion to sustain UCSF’s robust enterprise and to recruit and retain top talent.

The Chancellor will focus his remarks on UCSF’s extensive work in the community to address health inequities and some of the most challenging societal issues, such as homelessness, mental health and poverty.

The address will be presented live in Cole Hall on the Parnassus campus and from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. It will be live streamed on YouTube and simulcast at Byers Hall in Genentech Hall at Mission Bay, Herbst Hall at Mount Zion as well as in Fresno.

Joining the Chancellor for his presentation will be Margot Kushel, MD, professor of medicine and director of the Center for Vulnerable Populations at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, and Dayna Long, MD, medical director for the Department of Community Health and Engagement at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.

Kushel’s research focuses on the causes and consequences of homelessness and housing instability, with the goal of preventing and ending homelessness and ameliorating the effects of homelessness on health. Her research seeks to inform clinical practice, programs, and policies.

Long is finding ways to use health care settings as a buffer against toxic stress in order to help kids achieve better outcomes. She is working in Oakland and collaborating with other UCSF researchers on multidisciplinary clinical programs, trials and partnerships to address disparities that will help improve the health of all children.

They also hash out a fresh debate over who gets to fact-check the news that appears in your Facebook feed following an outcry in media circles on Tuesday, after Facebook flagged a story in the liberal outlet ThinkProgress as “false”—all because the conservative Weekly Standard had taken issue with its headline.

The hosts are then joined by professor Safiya Umoja Noble, author of Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism. Lately, media coverage—and congressional hearings—have focused on potential anti-conservative bias among the big tech companies, but Noble’s work suggests we may actually have a much different problem.

          Google's new AI chief has said he worries about 'horrible scenarios' that would trigger 'the complete lockdown of robotics research' (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

The iCub robot tries to catch a ball during the Innorobo European summit

  • Three top researchers have begun sounding warning bells about the possible negative impacts of AI.
  • Andrew Moore, the newly named head of AI at Google Cloud, said he has conceived of "horrible scenarios" that could potentially lead to a public backlash against the technology. 
  • Other researchers predict AI will lead to more automation in the workplace and reduce job opportunities for humans; and AI will one day enable more intrusion, even into our thoughts.

Some people quake at the idea of artificial intelligence. It's safe to say that sci-fi films featuring malevolent machines have helped poison much of the public's perception of AI. 

But three experts in the field say there's good reason to feel uneasy. While killer robots are still many years away, AI in some cases could pose an enormous threat to humans, according to Andrew Moore, the dean of the Computer School at Carnegie Mellon University who will soon take over as head of Google Cloud AI.

In November, Moore gave the keynote address for the Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative, and said: "If an AI disaster happens, and that would for instance be an autonomous car killing people due to serious bugs, and frankly I believe that’s already happened, then at some point AI systems are going to be locked down for development, at least in the US."

"There are some even more horrible scenarios — which I don’t want to talk about on the stage, which we’re really worried about — that will cause the complete lockdown of robotics research," Moore continued.

'There are some even more horrible scenarios'

Moore's statements come during a time when billions of dollars are being invested in AI.

Google, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Amazon, Facebook, and others are pushing hard to develop the technology. Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, once called AI more fundamental to human development than electricity or fire.

Andrew Moore

Nonetheless, a handful of researchers are urging caution and warning that AI misuse could bring serious consequences. 

Last week, Kai-Fu Lee, the former president of Google China, predicted that AI will revolutionize many industries and generate a lot of wealth, but most of it will land in the pockets of a relatively small number of people. He warned that with the help of AI, business owners will automate more and more tasks that were once performed by humans.

"So it's actually having a doubling effect...creating new AI tycoons at the same time taking away from the poorest of society," Lee said at the Artificial Intelligence 2018 Conference in San Francisco.

At the same conference, Meredith Whittaker, cofounder of the institute AI Now at New York University and a leading Google researcher, outlined how technologists, including Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, are searching for a means to enable humans to control devices via their thoughts. She predicted that in the not-so distant future, the technology will exist that can interpret and store our thoughts.

Whittaker then posed a question to the audience: What would happen if the authorities went to a company who had warehoused its customers' thoughts and subpoenaed a person's thought records? She called this possibility "creepy."

Along the same "creepy" vein is the increasing ability of AI systems to read human emotions. This is something that Moore said is on the way.

"Up until three or four years ago, the advances in computer vision and speech processing were around recognizing people, recognizing objects, and transforming spoken words into underlying written sentences," Moore told Forbes magazine last year. "Now we realize we can go farther than that. For example, the cameras in modern cell phones have such high resolution that they can see little imperfections in the face and use them to track all the parts of skin as they move around the face.

"From tracking all the bits of the skin, you can work out what the muscles are doing under the face," Moore continued. "From what the muscles are doing, using previous knowledge from psychology, you can detect facial action units and micro expressions to get information that we as humans are not even consciously aware of.

"This means that when in dialogue with a person, we can capture when they are excited, when they are happy, when there are fearful, or when there is a showing of contempt."

          ThinkProgress Censored By Facebook After Cheerleading Facebook Censorship      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

In an article last month titled “Facebook announces that fake accounts are now coming not just from Russia”, fauxgressive establishment apologia firm ThinkProgress falsely reported that I have been writing for an outlet that is alleged to be part of an Iranian propaganda campaign. I repeatedly broughtthis false claim to the attention of Casey Michel, the article’s author, telling him that ten seconds of research or any attempt to contact me would have shown him that the articles published by the outlet in question were just reblogs of earlier publications from my platform, but Michel ignored the many notifications he received from myself and my Twitter followers and went on merrily interacting with other posters. As of this writing, the article remains uncorrected.

In the article, Michel documented Facebook’s heroic efforts to shut down alleged Iranian propaganda outlets, ominously warning his readers that “Russia is by no means the only foreign adversary exploiting social media’s inherent openness.” In other articles for ThinkProgress, Michel is repeatedlyseen wagging his finger at Facebook and Twitter for not doing more to censor “Russian propaganda”, and in a July article titled “Facebook says both sides share fake news, defends Infowars’ presence on its platform  -  Mark Zuckerberg has an interesting way of prioritizing ‘high quality news’” another ThinkProgress author criticized Facebook for not censoring Alex Jones. Jones was censored by Facebook the following month.

So I think it’s understandable that those of us who have been warning of the dangers of internet censorship find it a bit funny to see ThinkProgress now complaining that it has been censored by Facebook.

ThinkProgress reports that its traffic from Facebook has been slashed by eighty percent due to a “fact check” by the Weekly Standard which, through a series of moronic mental contortions, found ThinkProgress guilty of reporting fake news about Brett Kavanaugh of all things. In a twist of irony which would be delicious if it weren’t so disgusting, the Weekly Standard is one of Facebook’s authorized “fact checkers”, and happens to be the brainchild of none other than bloodthirsty psychopath and rehabilitated #Resistance hero Bill Kristol.

ThinkProgress is part of a very large and diverse branch of progressive punditry whose ultimate job is to help centrist empire loyalists feel like leftist revolutionaries, and since 2016 one of the many appalling consequences of this bizarre environment has been the embracing of Iraq-raping neoconservatives like Kristol and Max Boot by Democratic Party loyalists. In a bid to stay relevant despite having been consistently wrong about literally everything in foreign policy for the last two decades, these murderous ghouls have repackaged themselves as a woke, cuddly alternative to the Trumpian faction of the Republican Party, and have been rewarded for their efforts with regular platforms on MSNBC and the Washington Post.

So with ThinkProgress getting censored by Facebook, you really couldn’t ask for a more clear-cut case of reaping what you sow. Nevertheless, it is wrong for anyone to be deprived of political speech, even if much of their political speech consists of attempts to silence the political speech of others.

And if there is anything more gross than political speech being regulated by Silicon Valley plutocrats and a NATO psyop factory, it’s political speech being regulated by Silicon Valley plutocrats, a NATO psyop factory, and Bill Kristol. ThinkProgress should not have its audience restricted.

All the “let me help you cheer for the establishment while pretending to oppose it” pundits who celebrated Alex Jones’ coordinated de-platforming last month are falling all over themselves to spin this new development in a way that allows them to feel as though they aren’t being proven wrong day after day after day, but of course they are. Facilitating the censorship of anyone’s speech is facilitating the censorship of your own speech in the long run, and we’re not even having to wait long to see it this time around. In a corporatist system of government, corporate censorship is state censorship; the massive new media corporations being implored to regulate which political speech gets an audience and which doesn’t have extensive ties to secretive government agencies and a vested interest in maintaining the status quo.

I do not expect ThinkProgress to remain on Facebook’s restricted list for long; the real targets of internet censorship are not partisan outlets which prop up establishment politics and help legitimize America’s two-headed one party system. But that isn’t the point. The point is that Silicon Valley plutocrats, the NATO propaganda firm Atlantic Council, and the Weekly Standard should not be determining who gets an audience in the new media environment and who doesn’t. Nothing that has anything to do with Bill Kristol should ever have any power over anyone. If our choices are between letting people think for themselves and letting the guy who’s always wrong about everything determine what shows up in people’s news feed, the choice is obviously the one which doesn’t involve placing faith in the man who helped deceive America into butchering a million Iraqis.

          La vida de Mark Zuckerberg: levantarse a las 10 de la mañana, sin televisión y deporte por «streaming»      Cache   Translate Page      
Es uno de los rostros conocidos más reservados, pero de vez en cuando Mark Zuckerberg comparte cómo es su día a día con sus millones de amigos en Facebook. Incluso cuando no atraviesa sus mejores momentos: el empresario ha visto reducido su valor patrimonial y ha tenido que declarar ante el Congreso de Estados Unidos para explicar cómo se tratan los datos que millones de personas de todo el mundo confían a la red social. Eso sin hablar de la cantidad de jóvenes que han eliminado sus perfiles en la web porque ya no confían en ella. Esta vez, Zuckerberg ha abierto su mansión para todos, con un vídeo en el que se ve su día a día, así como una entrevista concedida a Evan Osnos, periodista de «The New Yorker». La casa cuesta seis millones de euros y fue construida en 1903 en Palo Alto. Allí se mudó en 2011 con su prometida, Priscilla Chan, y allí celebraron su boda. Ahora, la mansión es hogar de la pareja y de sus dos hijos, Maxima Chan y August Zuckerberg. Pero una de las mayores particularidades de la casa es la falta de vecinos, ya que el dueño de Facebook invirtió 44 millones de dólares en comprar todas las mansiones que rodeaban su casa para evitar la construcción de una casa con vistas al dormitorio de la pareja. Por otro lado, la pareja cuenta con una antigua plantación de caña en Hawaii, una casa en Montana y otra de cuatro plantas en San Francisco, según ha desvelado el propio Zuckerberg durante la entrevista. El empresario también ha reconocido que se levanta a las 10 de la mañana, que no se sube en una bici desde que se rompió un brazo pero sí utiliza una bici estática de 2.000 euros, en la que recibe clases vía streaming de un entrenador personal desde Nueva York y que en su casa no se ve la televisión, sino que prefiere los juegos de mesa. Por otro lado, la pareja sigue los hábitos saludables de Silicon Valley: mucho deporte y buena alimentación.

A video obtained by Breitbart of Google leaders lamenting the results of the 2016 election to employees at its first all-staff meeting after the vote is causing uproar from voices on the right.

Why it matters: The video adds fuel to the ongoing conservative narrative that Silicon Valley's progressive founders and corporate cultures cause their engineers to steer algorithms to be biased against conservative voices.


The video features Google executives telling employees that the outcome of the election was not what they preferred.

  • "I know that most people here are pretty upset and pretty sad about the election," Google co-founder Sergey Brin says. "Myself as an immigrant and a refugee, I certainly find this election deeply offensive and I know many of you do too."
  • CEO Sundar Pichai said that some employees had said they feared the outcome of the election. "There are people who are very afraid ... There is a lot of fear, so I think it's important to reach out and be aware of that fear."
  • Pichai and other executives also discussed the impact of the election on issues that affect employees, like immigration.

The timing of the video's release is notable. The video, shot shortly after the election in November 2016, has been leaked nearly two years later, at a time when conservative lawmakers are alleging that tech companies use their algorithms to steer traffic away from conservative websites, voices and lawmakers.

  • The concern from the right runs all the way up to the commander in chief, who tweeted several weeks ago that Google search results have been "RIGGED."
  • Trump's concerns prompted the Justice Department to get involved. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly exploring an investigation of social media companies.
  • Conservative members of Congress have long pressured tech on this issue. The House Energy and Commerce Committee had Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testify last week about censorship. Lawmakers pummeled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg with questions about censorship when he visited Capitol Hill last spring.
  • The leak also comes after Google raised the ire of Senate lawmakers by not providing a founder or CEO to testify at recent Senate Intelligence Committee hearings on election interference.

The footage was leaked to Breitbart, a right-wing website that's often viewed as a megaphone for the Trump White House. Google has in the past struggled with ways to keep conservative employees from feeling alienated by its progressive culture, a problem that often results in leaks.

Google says in a statement that "nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products." To the contrary, the company argues, "Our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint."

  • It is true that there has been no compelling evidence to suggest that Google, nor any other major tech platform, like Facebook or Twitter, designs its algorithms with a bias against conservative viewpoints.

Be smart: For years, Google has invested millions of dollars in creating a lobbying operation to win over the hearts of Republican lawmakers. Part of that push involves the tech firm pitching itself as unbiased and apolitical. This video, of Google's top executives emotionally discussing their opposition to Trump, makes that case harder to make.

The bigger picture: The video is an example of how tech companies, including Google, will always be on the defensive for past remarks and decisions showing political bias that can now resurface and be used as political ammunition.

“This video is the smoking gun. Google’s leadership is decidedly anti-Trump and there is no doubt that their company practices reflect that. We need hearings now. Google cannot continue to run and hide.”

          Google's new AI chief has said he worries about 'horrible scenarios' that would trigger 'the complete lockdown of robotics research' (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page

  • Three top researchers have begun sounding warning bells about the possible negative impacts of AI.
  • Andrew Moore, the newly named head of AI at Google Cloud, said he has conceived of "horrible scenarios" that could potentially lead to a public backlash against the technology. 
  • Other researchers predict AI will lead to more automation in the workplace and reduce job opportunities for humans; and AI will one day enable more intrusion, even into our thoughts.

Some people quake at the idea of artificial intelligence. It's safe to say that sci-fi films featuring malevolent machines have helped poison much of the public's perception of AI. 

But three experts in the field say there's good reason to feel uneasy. While killer robots are still many years away, AI in some cases could pose an enormous threat to humans, according to Andrew Moore, the dean of the Computer School at Carnegie Mellon University who will soon take over as head of Google Cloud AI.

In November, Moore gave the keynote address for the Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative, and said: "If an AI disaster happens, and that would for instance be an autonomous car killing people due to serious bugs, and frankly I believe that’s already happened, then at some point AI systems are going to be locked down for development, at least in the US."

"There are some even more horrible scenarios — which I don’t want to talk about on the stage, which we’re really worried about — that will cause the complete lockdown of robotics research," Moore continued.

'There are some even more horrible scenarios'

Moore's statements come during a time when billions of dollars are being invested in AI.

Google, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Amazon, Facebook, and others are pushing hard to develop the technology. Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, once called AI more fundamental to human development than electricity or fire.

Andrew Moore

Nonetheless, a handful of researchers are urging caution and warning that AI misuse could bring serious consequences. 

Last week, Kai-Fu Lee, the former president of Google China, predicted that AI will revolutionize many industries and generate a lot of wealth, but most of it will land in the pockets of a relatively small number of people. He warned that with the help of AI, business owners will automate more and more tasks that were once performed by humans.

"So it's actually having a doubling effect...creating new AI tycoons at the same time taking away from the poorest of society," Lee said at the Artificial Intelligence 2018 Conference in San Francisco.

At the same conference, Meredith Whittaker, cofounder of the institute AI Now at New York University and a leading Google researcher, outlined how technologists, including Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, are searching for a means to enable humans to control devices via their thoughts. She predicted that in the not-so distant future, the technology will exist that can interpret and store our thoughts.

Whittaker then posed a question to the audience: What would happen if the authorities went to a company who had warehoused its customers' thoughts and subpoenaed a person's thought records? She called this possibility "creepy."

Along the same "creepy" vein is the increasing ability of AI systems to read human emotions. This is something that Moore said is on the way.

"Up until three or four years ago, the advances in computer vision and speech processing were around recognizing people, recognizing objects, and transforming spoken words into underlying written sentences," Moore told Forbes magazine last year. "Now we realize we can go farther than that. For example, the cameras in modern cell phones have such high resolution that they can see little imperfections in the face and use them to track all the parts of skin as they move around the face.

"From tracking all the bits of the skin, you can work out what the muscles are doing under the face," Moore continued. "From what the muscles are doing, using previous knowledge from psychology, you can detect facial action units and micro expressions to get information that we as humans are not even consciously aware of.

"This means that when in dialogue with a person, we can capture when they are excited, when they are happy, when there are fearful, or when there is a showing of contempt."

          Alternative Media under Attack: American Herald Tribune another Target on the List      Cache   Translate Page      
 by Zara Ali 

Image result for Alternative media is under attack.
Alternative media is under attack. It seems that the US government and its allies do not find it suffice to control mainstream media, and is, in fact, desperate to shut down any alternative media that speaks the truth. Two weeks ago, the Gmail of the alternative media outlet, American Herald Tribune was shut down without prior notice. Google stopped serving ads on the website. Suddenly afterward the website’s Facebook page was shut down (not so surprising! Read the Washington Post op-ed by Mark Zuckerberg and it should remove any ambiguity).
As with similar cases for other alternative media, the American Herald Tribune team should expect to see their Twitter account down anytime soon. This is not the first case of online “aggression” towards alternative media outlets. Alternative media is under serious attack.
Freshly, the prominent TeleSur program The Empire Files was shut down as a consequence of US sanctions imposed on Venezuela. Meanwhile, Facebook and other social media giants have been censoring and concealing content that doesn’t fit the corporate media narrative and exposes the censorship of mainstream media.
A Facebook page containing pro-Palestinian posts has been taken down by the social media giant, of course only one of a string of pages that have been shut down. The closure of the Occupy London page, which has garnered more than 150k followers since its opening in 2011, follows the “continual removal of posts related to Palestine”, an Occupy London spokesperson had said.
According to an Intercept report, of some 158 requests made by Tel Aviv to Facebook (over just four months) for the removal of Palestinian content, 95 percent were granted.
Mark Zuckerberg himself acknowledged that Facebook has become little more than a vehicle for US government censorship and Western propaganda.
Zuckerberg admitted in an op-ed he wrote for the Washington Post that “protecting democracy” is an “arms race” and reaffirmed Facebook’s commitment to winning. Frankly speaking, Mark admitted that Facebook and social media outlets are weapons of hegemony.
The US is not only launching an economic war and hard military war against states here and there on the planet, but has also decided to continue its war in the virtual world, all taking place amid international community silence.

          [原]这位闯进程序员界的维密天使,她到底可以编出什么?!      Cache   Translate Page      

格子衫、大裤衩、人字拖、黑色双肩包以及 BlingBling 的头发放置在一个人身上时,你首先想到的是他代表了哪一种群体?

这里写图片描述

想必很多身处 IT 届的从业者都已了然于心,这不就是程序员的经典造型嘛。所以说如果有一天这个特立独行、沉默寡言且绝大多数为清一色的群体中突然加入了一位仙女姐姐且还是其他领域的知名人物,譬如接下来要讲的这位维密超模—— Lyndsey Scott 时,会发生什么样的化学反应?接下来,我们来一窥究竟。

1.猫步 vs 代码,超模 vs 程序员

生于 1984 年的 Lyndsey Scott,从小在美国的新泽西州西奥兰治长大,但素来因美国种族歧视因素,作为高中前三年学生时代唯一一名黑人,她备受同学欺凌和嘲弄,不过也正式因此,坚韧且坦率的性格被逐渐打磨出来。

这里写图片描述

2009 年,她成为第一个与 Calvin Klein 签订独家走秀合同的非裔美国人模特。自从之后,她走遍全球时装周如 Prada、Gucci、Louis Vuitton、Vera Wang、Fendi 走秀,俨然成为大众视野中的一名光鲜亮丽的顶级模特,且集高挑、精致、性感、成功等美好的标签于一身。

这里写图片描述

但是在台下,她有一个鲜为人知的身份——程序员。

八竿子打不着的时尚圈和 IT 领域,在常人难以想象的结合场景之下,这样一位名模却穿梭其间。探究其过往,我们也就理解为何她会对变幻莫测的编程感兴趣了。

在 Lyndsey Scott 很小的时候,身为程序员的父亲经常把家中最大的孩子 Scott 往计算机科学道路上引导。在 12 岁那一年,Scott 就开始正式学习编程,并为她的 TI-89 Titanium 图形计算器编写游戏。长大之后,Scott 在阿默斯特学院学习了 Java、C++ 以及 MIPS 架构,后来也自学了 Python、Objective-C。

用 Scott 自己的话来讲, “毕业后的两年内,我的父母总是往我的门缝下塞宣传单,上面都是他们听说的关于计算机科学各式各样的工作。”不过,倔强的 Scott 根据自己的兴趣爱好,抗拒了父母的安排,选择了自己更喜爱的模特生涯,并将程序员作为第二职业。

2.技多压身的 Lyndsey Scott,被推向舆论浪尖!

但就是这样一位女孩,在第二重程序员的身份曝光之后,即使有诸多成就加身,也没有迎来其他程序员的热烈掌声和帮助,反而接踵而至的是严重的排斥和来自四面八方的质疑:作为兼职的程序员,你有何能耐?

为什么会受到这样的质疑?

或许还不是因为 Lyndsey Scott 有一个让常人觉得不务正业的模特职业,虽然 Scott 通常会忽略这些舆论攻击。但近日,Instagram 上发布了的一个名为“This Victoria’s Secret model can program code in Python, C++, Java, MIPS, and Objective-C”的帖子:

这里写图片描述

该博主的本意是希望大家以此为榜样,宣扬“超模可以当程序员,编程属于每个人!”的理念,却万万没想到弄巧成拙,评论区成为几千人质疑的战场。不少网友开始嘲笑 Scott 的真实能力,称或许她仅可以编出“Hello World!”罢了,也有人并不怀疑她能够编码的能力,而是质疑她的代码质量,他们表示“任何人都可以编写代码,但不是很多人都可以编写出优秀的代码。虽然不少编程语言易于学习,但想写出可扩展性、可读性、可维护性等高效代码并不容易。”

这里写图片描述

这件事没过多久便引起事件主人公 Scott 的关注,最终她决定站出来以事实反击那些只看表面不言内在的网友:

  1. 我在 Stack Overflow 上有 27481 分;

  2. 我是 RayWendelich.com 的 iOS 教学团队成员;

  3. 我是 RallyBound 的 iOS 软件工程师;

  4. 我拥有阿默斯特学院的电影和编程双学位。

最后她有些失望地补充道,“看到这些评论,我才明白 41% 的女性离开了编程工作,原来是因为“工作环境”如此恶劣”。

这里写图片描述

3.开发者的她究竟可以编出什么?

当然,仅凭三言两语就想让大家信服她的实力也不大现实。所以,身为开发者的她究竟可以敲出什么样的代码?

翻开 Scott 的履历,我们发现她并非上文介绍的那么简单。Scott 先是一名优秀的软件工程师,后是 Apple iOS 教程团队成员,且曾与 Bill Gates 和 Mark Zuckerberg 一起为 Code.org 完成了许多视频教程。

早期,Scott 主攻 Python 和 Objective-C,不少的 iOS 移动应用程序也是自己亲手编写的。她最初于 2011 年公开发布了第一个 App,并将其命名为“Educate!”,这是为了帮助赞助乌干达学者的慈善机构。后来当别的模特忙着四处面试、找秀走的时候,她在 2013 年已经开发出了一款 IPort应用,旨在让模特们轻松制作电子简历的 App。

Scott 有关 IPort App 介绍

之后,Scott 还相继开发了一些应用,如“Matchmaker”,相当于如今微信中“附近的人”这一功能,可匹配附近的好友从而进行社交;Code Made Cool 是一款 iPhone App,可以通过拖拽梦幻场景中的女孩来播放 Ryan Gosling 的动画照片;另外还有一款 Squarify 修图软件,可以 PS 也可将矩形图像或视频转换为正方形,以方便 Instagram 使用。

截止目前,Scott 已经开发出近 10 个 App。不过,这些应用有的仅是满足了 Scott 自己的需求,所以并未发布出来,但这似乎也不影响 Scott 的编程能力。

在自主研发的同时,Scott 也开始在 Stack Overflow(https://stackoverflow.com/cv/lyndseyscott) 上为很多的开发者答疑。2014 年初,她就拥有超过 2000+ 个声望和超过 38000 次的 profile 浏览量。2015 年,她成为解答 iOS 问题的最佳用户,为期一个月。截至目前,她在该网站上获得 27,820 个声望。

这里写图片描述

此外,从 Stack Overflow 上我们也可以看出,Scott 早已在 iOS 开发中身经百战。

这里写图片描述

而 Scott 本人所述的反击事实也进一步得到证明,她的确是 RayWenderlich.com 上多个 iOS 编程教程的作者,甚至曾用迪士尼的冰雪女王人物制作了一个视频教学节目。不仅如此,Scott 在哈莱姆和纽约大学的学校进行了编程讲座,并在洛杉矶的编程课上指导女童子军。

这里写图片描述

回忆起每天摸黑编程的日子,常常带着眼镜的 Scott 曾无奈地说道“那些眼镜都碎了,我有好几次戴着它就睡着了,虽然也曾试着用胶带把它粘牢,但效果都不大好。”

至此,面对无端猜忌带来的攻击,Scott 用最有力的证据打脸无知的键盘侠们。同时她还在自己的 Instagram 帐户上分享了最初的攻击帖,并附上:“不要试图嘲笑,我只是陈述事实,也希望至少能说服我的一个负面的评论者,其实程序员会有各种类型、年龄、性别、种族的人,如果你们对科技领域中遇到的女性有所怀疑,还是请斟酌。“。

这里写图片描述

4.同行兼程序员的 Karlie Kloss

其实,提起维密天使即程序员,还有一位响当当的人物,她就是 92 年出生如今火遍全球的 Karlie Kloss,人称小 KK。和 Lyndsey Scott 的经历正好相反,Lyndsey Scott 是从小在计算机的熏陶中跳跃至时尚界,KK 则是从时尚圈中逐渐萌生编程的兴趣,并于前几年,宣布进入纽约大学,进修编程。

这里写图片描述

此外,她还推出自己的奖学金项目 —— KodeWithKarlie,为 20 位女性提供为期两周,在纽约 Flatiron School 学习编程的奖学金,她曾表示:「我坚信年轻女性越早的接触及学习编程,能够帮助我们在改变世界上拥有发言权与一席之地。」

5.写在最后

寻找程序员界的鼻祖,据各方资料显示,被珍视为“第一位给计算机写程序的人”乃是英国著名诗人拜伦之女阿达·洛芙莱斯(Ada Lovelace),她为计算程序拟定“算法”,制作了第一份“程序设计流程图”,高级编程语言 Ada 名称的由来也是为了纪念她而存在。

之后,世界上第一台通用计算机 ENIAC 的诞生,被记入科技史册,却鲜有人知道完成第一台计算机编译和部署的,是由 6 位女程序员组成的团队。

这里写图片描述

对于科技圈而言,不论开端还是发展,女性所做的贡献丝毫不容忽视。如果身为程序员仅是因女性、模特等身份遭受的歧视,从根源上来看,也仅是弱者力所不能及的能力体现,正所谓「有志矣,不随以止也,然力不足者,亦不能至也」。

其实,对能者说一句“厉害”,真没那么难!

          Menjadi Orang Terkaya Dunia, Bukan karena Faktor Usia      Cache   Translate Page      

BINTANGNEWS.com – Usia muda bukan hal yang mustahil bagi seseorang untuk menjadi orang-orang terkaya dunia. Para miliarder dunia tercatat memiliki usia yang relatif muda saat tercatat memiliki USD1 juta pertama (sebagai jutawan) dan kemudian USD1 miliar pertama (sebagai miliarder) dalam hidup mereka.
Hanya, rentang waktu mereka dalam menggapai kekayaannya berbeda-beda. Co-founder Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, misalnya, memiliki kekayaan USD1 juta pertama dalam usia 22 tahun pada 2007.

Zuckerberg hanya membutuhkan waktu setahun untuk mengubah posisinya dari jutawan menjadi miliarder pada umur 23 tahun. Pendiri Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett, meraih USD1 juta pertama pada usia 30 tahun, kemudian memiliki USD1 miliar pertama pada usia 56 tahun.

“Buffett membutuhkan waktu 26 tahun dari posisi sebagai jutawan untuk kemudian menjadi miliarder,” ungkap laporan Business Insider. Adapun pendiri Amazon Inc, Jeff Bezos, di usia 33 tahun sudah menjadi jutawan dan pada usia 35 tahun sudah menjadi miliarder.

“Selisih waktu yang diperlukan Bezos untuk menjadi miliarder hanya dua tahun dari saat dia memiliki kekayaan USD1 juta pertama,” papar laporan Business Insider.

Berdasarkan Bloomberg Billionaires Index (Indeks Miliarder Bloom berg), Zuckerberg merupakan orang terkaya kelima di dunia tahun ini dengan nilai kekayaan mencapai USD70,2 miliar. Posisinya di ranking lima besar orang terkaya di dunia tidak pernah goyah sekalipun meski kekayaannya pernah berkurang USD2,61 miliar.

Kesuksesan Zuckerberg berada di luar dugaan dan dipenuhi lika-liku. Awalnya, dia membuat program bernama Facemash di ruang asramanya saat kuliah di Harvard pada 2000-an. Saat itu dia iseng menyimpan nama dan foto seluruh teman asramanya dan diurutkan berdasarkan popularitas dalam program Facemash-nya.

Namun, selang sepekan, pihak kampus melumpuhkan situs tersebut karena mengganggu akses jaringan. Selain itu, banyak mahasiswa yang mengeluhkan foto mereka dipajang tanpa seizin pemiliknya. Setelah meminta maaf, Zuckerberg kembali menekuni bakatnya dan mulai menulis kode baru The-facebook pada Januari 2004.

Zuckerberg harus pulang dengan penuh kekecewaan karena di drop out (DO) dari Harvard setelah menghadapi sengketa. Dia dituduh menipu seniornya yang memiliki ide membuat jaringan sosial di lingkungan kampus bernama Harvard Connection.com dengan membuat produk lain.

Dia dituntut hingga pengadilan. Tiga tahun berselang, Zuckerberg yang kala itu masih berusia 20 tahun menjadi jutawan. Dia kemudian mendaftarkan Facebook dalam Bursa Saham New York pada 2007 dan pada saat bersamaan, menjadi miliarder termuda di dunia. Popularitas Facebook merangkak naik. Jumlah penggunanya mencapai 2,3 miliar per bulan.

Perjalanan berbeda dan cukup berliku dilalui Buffett. Dia tidak meraih sukses secepat dan semuda Zuckerberg.

Gelar miliarder baru diraihnya pada usia 56 tahun atau sekitar 26 tahun sejak dia menjadi jutawan. Kekayaan Buffett saat ini mencapai USD86,7 miliar. Dia menjadi orang terkaya ketiga di dunia di belakang Bill Gates dan Jeff Bezos.

Buffett dikenal sebagai raja investasi. Dia sangat cermat mengelola uang dan berani mengambil risiko. Awalnya, dia bekerja sebagai sales investasi di Buffett-Falk & Co pada tahun 1951-1954 sebelum menjadi broker dan agen public speaking.

Bermodal pengalaman itu, dia mulai mengajar di kelas malam Universitas of Nebraska-Omaha. Selama bekerja di lembaga pendidikan, Buffett juga mulai membeli saham di Sinclair Texaco, meski berakhir buruk.

Pengalaman itu tidak membuatnya menyerah. Dia menciptakan Buffett Partnership dan mengakuisisi pabrik tekstil Berkshire Hathaway. Saat ini Berkshire Hathaway menjadi perusahaan holding raksasa.

Miliarder lainnya, Bezos, lebih cepat meraih sukses dibanding Buffett. Dia hanya menjadi jutawan selama dua tahun sebelum kekayaannya naik bermiliar-miliar pada 1998. Lelaki kelahiran Amerika Serikat (AS) itu mendirikan Amazon pada akhir 1994 selama perjalanan lintas negara bagian antara Kota New York dan Seattle.

Dikutif Sindonews, Amazon awalnya hanyalah situs daring jual-beli buku. Namun, seiring dengan waktu, Amazon menjadi ritel daring raksasa dengan ribuan produk dan jasa, termasuk streaming video dan audio.

Saat ini Amazon merupakan perusahaan belanja daring terbesar dan penyedia layanan infrastruktur Cloud terbesar di dunia. Pada27Juli2017, Bezos menjadi orang terkaya di dunia dengan kekayaan mencapai USD90 miliar.

Kekayaannya melampaui USD100 miliar untuk pertama kali pada 24 November. Berdasarkan majalah Forbes, kekayaan Bezos mencapai USD150 miliar pada Juli dan menjadi orang terkaya di sepanjang sejarah modern.

Dewasa ini, perusahaan teknologi mendominasi ranking atas perusahaan tersukses di dunia. Ma Yun atau yang biasa dikenal Jack Ma juga menjadi miliarder setelah membuka situs jual-beli daring di China bernama Alibaba. Dia menjadi miliarder di usia 45 tahun dan merupakan salah satu orang terkaya di China dan dunia.

Ma sering dianggap sebagai duta global bisnis China dan memiliki pengaruh besar. Pada 2017, dia ditempatkan di posisi kedua dalam World 50 Greatest Leaders (50 Pemimpin Terhebat Dunia) versi Fortune.

Padahal, awalnya, dia bahkan kesulitan mencari kerja. Ma melamar pada 30 perusahaan dan tidak ada panggilan. Pada 1994, Ma mulai mengenali internet. Saat itu segala sesuatu terkait China masih jarang muncul di internet..(bin)

          Addiction Abuse      Cache   Translate Page      

Hardly a day goes by without a report in the press about some new addiction. There are warnings about addiction to coffee. Popular psychology publications talk of “extreme sports addiction.” Some news reports even alert us to the perils of chocolate addiction. One gets the impression that life is awash in threats of addiction. People tend to equate the word “addiction” with “abuse.” Ironically, “addiction” is a subject of abuse.

The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines addiction as a “chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry…characterized by the inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving” that continues despite resulting destruction of relationships, economic conditions, and health. A major feature is compulsiveness. Addiction has a biopsychosocial basis with a genetic predisposition and involves neurotransmitters and interactions within reward centers of the brain. This compusliveness is why alcoholics or other drug addicts will return to their substance of abuse even after they have been “detoxed” and despite the fact that they know it will further damage their lives. 

Addiction is not the same as dependence. Yet politicians and many in the media use the two words interchangeably. Physical dependence represents an adaptation to the drug such that abrupt cessation or tapering off too rapidly can precipitate a withdrawal syndrome, which in some cases can be life-threatening. Physical dependence is seen with many categories of drugs besides drugs commonly abused. It is seen for example with many antidepressants, such as fluoxetine (Prozac) and sertraline (Zoloft), and with beta blockers like atenolol and propranolol, used to treat a variety of conditions including hypertension and migraines. Once a patient is properly tapered off of the drug on which they have become physically dependent, they do not feel a craving or compulsion to return to the drug.

Some also confuse tolerance with addiction. Similar to dependency, tolerance is another example of physical adaptation. Tolerance refers to the decrease in one or more effects a drug has on a person after repeated exposure, requiring increases in the dose.

Science journalist Maia Szalavitz, writing in the Columbia Journalism Review, ably details how journalists perpetuate this lack of understanding and fuel misguided opioid policies.

Many in the media share responsibility for the mistaken belief that prescription opioids rapidly and readily addict patients—despite the fact that Drs. Nora Volkow and Thomas McLellan of the National Institute on Drug Abuse point out addiction is very uncommon, “even among those with preexisting vulnerabilities.” Cochrane systematic studies in 2010 and 2012 of chronic pain patients found addiction rates in the 1 percent range, and a report on over 568,000 patients in the Aetna database who were prescribed opioids for acute postoperative pain between 2008 and 2016 found a total “misuse” rate of 0.6 percent. 

Equating dependency with addiction caused lawmakers to impose opioid prescription limits that are not evidence-based, and is making patients suffer needlessly after being tapered too abruptly or cut off entirely from their pain medicine. Many, in desperation, seek relief in the black market where they get exposed to heroin and fentanyl. Some resort to suicide. There have been enough reports of suicides that the US Senate is poised to vote on opioid legislation that “would require HHS and the Department of Justice to conduct a study on the effect that federal and state opioid prescribing limits have had on patients — and specifically whether such limits are associated with higher suicide rate.” And complaints about the lack of evidence behind present prescribing policy led Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb to announce plans last month for the FDA to develop its own set of evidence-based guidelines.

Now there is talk in media and political circles about the threats of “social media addiction.” But there is not enough evidence to conclude that spending extreme amounts of time on the internet and with social media is an addictive disorder. One of the leading researchers on the subject stresses that most reports on the phenomenon are anecdotal and peer-reviewed scientific research is scarce. A recent Pew study found the majority of social media users would not find it difficult to give it up. The American Psychiatric Association does not consider social media addiction or “internet addiction” a disorder and does not include it in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), considering it an area that requires further research.

This doesn’t stop pundits from warning us about the dangers of social media addiction. Some warnings might be politically motivated. Recent reports suggest Congress might soon get into the act. If that happens, it can threaten freedom of speech and freedom of the press. It can also generate biliions of dollars in government spending on social media addiction treatment.

Before people see more of their rights infringed or are otherwise harmed by unintended consequences, it would do us all a great deal of good to be more accurate and precise in our terminology. It would also help if lawmakers learned more about the matters on which they create policy.

          Don't Undermine Your Brand With Poor Leadership      Cache   Translate Page      

Poor leadership at the top of your company can sink your brand in both the eyes of consumers and employees. If your external brand suffers, it's likely because management failed to deliver on the brand's ideals. When a brand fails in terms of employees, it's due to managers who lack vision to move the company forward. Here's how to avoid having bad leadership undermine your company's brand.

Look to Great Examples

There are plenty of great examples of how fantastic leaders exude their company culture as you look for inspiration in terms of your brand. Oprah Winfrey, one of the most recognizable brands in the world, overcame adversity in 2007 when a child sex abuse scandal hit her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. Despite the bad press, Winfrey cleaned up the teachers at the academy and instituted better safety protocols. Mark Zuckerberg came under fire from Congress for allowing privacy leaks and fake political campaign ads on his social network, yet Facebook still thrives as the number one social media platform in the world.

Find Your Own Impressive Leaders

Avoid poor leadership in your brand by finding your own impressive leaders to take over the reins of running your company. Credentials and an extensive background capture your attention, but those factors do not necessarily mean someone can help lead your firm. People with high emotional intelligence relate to employees by knowing what they want, what drives them, how they work and how to empathize. Ask pointed questions of potential candidates to see if they have the right EQ for the job. Evaluate people's ability to pick up on someone else's emotions and their ways of inspiring people, and if the candidates are self-aware of their own emotions.

Discover Empowering Leaders

Great leaders empower others to make your brand great. Managers and executives can't do everything on their own, which is why they must have the ability to trust their teams, delegate authority, and create a culture of innovation and collaboration among teams. Get to the bottom of a candidate's panache for inspiring a team by asking how he would run a particular project. Is the person someone who pays attention to every single detail of another person's work on a project, or does he trust people to get the job done?

Find Leaders Who Learned From Mistakes

Experience comes from learning from your mistakes, and that's what turns good leaders into fantastic ones. Pick out managers who learned valuable lessons from their mistakes and overcame their obstacles. Someone's honesty and humility about a mistake builds trust with you and teammates. It also shows that good leaders adapt to conditions quickly to make things right. This type of quick thinking and problem-solving in a crisis can save your brand in the future if something goes awry.

Your brand doesn't have to suffer from bad leaders. Learn how to hire ones that edify your company and understand what it takes to grow. Doing so can prevent a lot of pain and heartache when challenges occur.

As Bezos' wealth ballooned, many have wondered what he was planning to do with all that cash.

          As CEO, I let the whole company see the same charts, graphs, and data as the execs, and I'm convinced that's the key to success      Cache   Translate Page      

david siegel

  • David Siegel was the CEO of Investopedia for three years.
  • As CEO, he realized that smart decisions are made based on data, and that the greatest reason for disagreement in organizations is the asymmetrical access to reports.
  • So he instituted three steps to make sure employees had access to data detailing progress across the company: he distributed reports to everyone, held weekly metrics meetings, and let any employee join any email list.

Alan Mulally, the former CEO of Boeing and Ford, tells a story about his first week as CEO of Ford that I never forgot.

He asked every leader to share their top metrics and label each as green (on target), yellow (off target, plan in place) or red (off target, no plan yet). One executive after another presented their key metrics and every single one was a green.

At the same time, in 2006, Ford was near bankruptcy and losing close to $17 billion. The notion that every metric was green was clearly absurd. Yet, Ford execs had been trained that “sharing the bad was followed by getting fired.”

Finally, one brave executive shared a “red.” Alan stood up, called the executive out and gave him a standing ovation. It was through the honest and broad sharing of data that Ford began to shift their culture and begin the long process of emerging out of their financial debacle.

In three years as the CEO of Investopedia, I came to understand that smart decisions are made based on data and that the greatest reason for disagreement in organizations is the asymmetrical access to reports. The sales leader knows her information and the product leader knows his data. Because of access to siloed data, when there is disagreement, it is often due to a lack of comprehensive information.

For that reason, we instituted specific measures to give every employee the information they need.

1. We gave every employee access to the same reports as the CEO


This includes every weekly report, monthly report, financial analysis, every key performance indicator, sales or traffic report, the whole enchilada. No one could complain about not being in the loop, no one could wield power because of greater access and with  access to the same reports, employees could support their points with objective and fully shared information.

The sole exception to transparent reporting is human resource-related reports. I do not believe that if an employee is on a performance plan that should be public knowledge. I don’t believe that compensation information should be shared across the organization.

The reason for this is that an open policy around employee performance and rewards will inevitably engender resentment, anger, embarrassment and discord between employees. The subtleties in human dynamics are simply too complex to include in a report without verbal explanations. All other business strategies and metrics should however be broadly shared and ideally in weekly metrics meetings.

2. We invited everyone to weekly metrics meetings

Most Investopedia leaders hold weekly metrics meetings that are designed to drill down in the metrics and figure out what's working and more importantly, what's not. The whole team is invited. The team debates why things aren't working, brainstorms solutions and then prioritizes those solutions as part of the product roadmap. Everyone, every week, is aware of the metrics.

Together, the team feels the joys of success and the pain of challenges. Because it is weekly, there's no hiding from it. The weekly metrics meeting drives deep buy in, facilitates creative solutions, bridges the gap between manager imperatives and employee realities and ensures that the best ideas win.

3. We let any employee join any email list

On the sales team and want to know what product is working on? Join their distribution list. On editorial and wondering what the developers are working on? You know what to do.

I have had fierce arguments with other CEOs about whether to broadly email detailed data to all employee or to have them opt into receiving the reports. The argument for sending is that employees may not sign up for a distribution list but once they start receiving the emails, they are glad they are receiving them. I don’t agree. Psychologically, a behavior is fundamentally more internalized when it is initiated by an individual. We push hard for employees to take the proactive action themselves to join distribution lists of interest and it is this choice that significantly increases the likelihood they will read the report.

Transparent reports, open access to email lists, and a blurring of the silos that too frequently exist in organizations enable smart decision-making. So the next time you may share your analysis or report on a “need to know” basis, instead focus on the “need to align” and share abundantly. Your  employees will thank you for the transparency and better business decisions will be made throughout the company.

David Siegel has been a digital media executive for over 20 years. He has served as CEO of Investopedia and previously served as President, Seeking Alpha, and Senior Vice President and General Manager at Everyday Health. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Management focused on strategy and entrepreneurship at Columbia University. Reach him at dmsiegel@gmail.com.

          Mark Zuckerberg, one of the world's most powerful CEOs, has never worked at a company besides Facebook, and it's a blessing and a curse      Cache   Translate Page      

Mark Zuckerberg

  • Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's CEO and founder, has spent his entire career at one company.
  • According to The New Yorker, Zuckerberg often relies on COO Sheryl Sandberg to find out how things work at other companies.
  • Workplace experts say it's important for long-tenured leaders like Zuckerberg to surround themselves with other perspectives.
  • As for individuals, it can be helpful to move around between companies, or between departments at the same company, to develop new skills.


A recent New Yorker profile of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg includes a telling quotation from COO Sheryl Sandberg:

"Sometimes Mark will say, in front of the company, 'Well, I've never worked anywhere else, but Sheryl tells me...'"

Sandberg added: "He acknowledges he doesn't always have the most experience. He's only had the experience he's had, and being Mark Zuckerberg is pretty extraordinary."

Zuckerberg is 34 years old; he founded Facebook in college. As The New Yorker's Evan Osnos points out, Zuckerberg has designed the entire company to suit his unique preferences. (Osnos writes that Zuckerberg chose Facebook's signature royal blue because he is red-green color-blind and can see royal blue most clearly.)

While Zuckerberg is an extreme example, the quotation from Sandberg raises questions about the relative benefits and drawbacks of building your career in one place. We asked two workplace experts for their opinions, although they can't comment on Zuckerberg specifically since they don't know him personally.

Long-tenured leaders should surround themselves with people who have different perspectives

Jaime Klein, who is the founder of Inspire Human Resources, mentioned some organizational benefits of having a long-tenured leader, including "institutional knowledge" and "cultural stability." Klein has observed that, when organizations go through a leadership transition, there tends to be a period of time where everyone is unproductive.

That said, Klein added that the downside of having a long-tenured leader is that "you don't have the importing of fresh ideas." We tend to "surround ourselves with fabulous people that remind us of our fabulous selves," Klein said, as opposed to people with different perspectives.

One potential solution, according to Klein and Erica Keswin, who is a workplace strategist, an executive coach, and the author of the forthcoming book "Bring Your Human to Work," is for CEOs to surround themselves with leaders who have more diverse backgrounds. That's what Zuckerberg seems to have done in hiring Sandberg, who came from Google and has government experience.

"It takes a strong leader," Keswin said, to recognize the gaps in their skill set and hire people whose competencies complement theirs.

Klein called it "cross-pollination": The leaders with outside experience bring innovative ideas and the more tenured leaders know how to implement those ideas in the context of their particular organization.

Keswin had another suggestion for long-tenured CEOs and founders: Join organizations with people in top leadership positions from other companies. That way, they can get candid feedback on their performance and hear how other leaders have tackled similar challenges.

Individuals can find it helpful to move around between — or within — organizations

As for people who aren't in top leadership positions, Keswin had a similar tip: Seek out opportunities to work across the organization so that you're constantly learning and growing. That might mean volunteering for side projects in other departments.

"You become more valuable to that business because you can connect the dots," Keswin said.

Klein's view is that moving between different organizations can be beneficial for individual employees, specifically because they develop different skills at each one. "Many times it does help people, if they feel like they can't reach their career potential," to move companies, she said.

It can also be helpful to work under a new leader, "with new ideas, new mentoring techniques, and new ways to develop that person."

Often, the decision to switch companies comes down to intuition over logic. As Klein said, "Everyone knows deep in their souls when it's time to go."

Like all foreign policy and military think tanks, the Atlantic Council exists to manufacture consent for the goals of its paymasters. It hit the jackpot when the world's largest social media network put it in charge of censorship. While the ubiquitous presence of Atlantic Council lobbyists across the information space already imperilled fair discourse, Facebook's May move empowered it to endanger freedom of expression.

Despite the fact that philanthropy is one way to justify the otherwise criminal income disparity that Jeff Bezos' fervent faith in capitalism enables, it seemed, oh, uncouth, that Bezos hadn't stepped up in the same way as some of his fellow billionaires. 

Now, we have movement. Bezos will initially invest $2 billion of his $150 billion U.S. dollars into existing homelessness charities and in the development of early childhood education centers via the Fund. Read more...

Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday made good on his Rosh Hashana promise to tell the public how he is approaching the toughest issues facing Facebook.

Zuckerberg published a very thorough 3,300 word post on Facebook detailing the company's multi-pronged approach to combating election interference. 

"These are incredibly complex and important problems, and this has been an intense year," Zuckerberg wrote. "In 2016, we were not prepared for the coordinated information operations we now regularly face. But we have learned a lot since then and have developed sophisticated systems that combine technology and people to prevent election interference on our services." Read more...

The 3,300 word note Mark Zuckerberg published Thursday about Facebook's approach to election interference contained some surprisingly frank insight into why Facebook has made some of the business decisions that it has. For example, Zuckerberg shared that he considered banning political ads all together (but decided against it). And that he was only opening up the platform to certain researchers because Facebook is now wary of misuse; thanks, Aleksandr Kogan!

We’re now less than two months out from the US midterm elections, and the pre-emptive assurances about security from social media sites, particularly Facebook, are now colored by a sense of urgency. Today, CEO Mark Zuckerberg released a massive blog post detailing the steps the company has already taken to prevent further election interference, and spiced it up by calling on everyone who isn’t Facebook to step up as well. He’s probably justified in his need to comment. Just last week, Facebook‘s COO Sheryl Sandberg was testifying about election interference before Congress, meaning elected officials consider it a serious issue. Last year,…

          Mark Zuckerberg says most people in Silicon Valley have one of two reactions to his $3 billion pledge to end disease      Cache   Translate Page      

mark zuckerberg

  • In 2016, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan pledged a $3 billion donation to "cure all disease."
  • In a recent interview with The New Yorker, Zuckerberg said the reception he's received is either one of two things: he should focus on something else or be less ambitious with his goals.
  • But Zuckerberg isn't deterred — he thinks there's an upside to speeding up the increase in life expectancy, and he believes the framework behind his plan will do just that.

In 2016, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan made a significant step toward humankind: Announcing that the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) will donate $3 billion to fund a plan to "cure all disease."

According to Chan, a pediatrician, the goal is not for no one to ever get sick, but to drastically reduce the frequency and severity of global disease. 

In the two years since, Zuckerberg has soaked up a range of criticism and response to this ambitious objective. In a recent in-depth interview with the The New Yorker, Zuckerberg said people in Silicon Valley react in one of two ways:

"A bunch of people have the reaction of 'Oh, that's obviously going to happen on its own — why don't you just spend your time doing something else?' And then a bunch of people have the reaction of 'Oh, that seems almost impossible — why are you setting your sights so high?'" 

But Zuckerberg is one for a challenge. The foundation intends to make riskier projects possible for scientists, even if they won't yield results for 20 or 50 years. "They want to give medical scientists the opportunity to work like coders in an ambitious Silicon Valley startup," Business Insider previously explained.

In 2017, the organization created an independent nonprofit Biohub, which committed $50 million to 47 scientists, technologists, and engineers working at UCSF, Stanford, and UC-Berkeley, reported Business Insider's Lydia Ramsey.

Despite the dubious reactions he's received, Zuckerberg remains positive about this plan.

"On average, every year for the last eighty years or so, I think, life expectancy has gone up by about a quarter of a year. And, if you believe that technological and scientific progress is not going to slow, there is a potential upside to speeding that up," he told The New Yorker.

He continued: "We're going to get to a point where the life expectancy implied by extrapolating that out will mean that we'll basically have been able to manage or cure all of the major things that people suffer from and die from today. Based on the data that we already see, it seems like there's a reasonable shot." 

The billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates seems to agree. 

"There are aspirations and then there are plans, and plans vary in terms of their degree of realism and concreteness," Gates told The New Yorker in regards to Zuckerberg's objectives. As Gates put it, Zuckerberg's long-range goal is "very safe, because you will not be around to write the article saying that he overcommitted."

Jeff Bezos, el hombre más rico del mundo, entra en la filantropía con un fondo de 2.000 millones de dólares#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Jeff Bezos, el famoso CEO de Amazon, Blue Origin y The Washington Post, y que a día de hoy es el hombre más rico de planeta con una fortuna estimada en 163.000 millones de dólares, acaba de anunciar un nuevo fondo filantrópico de 2.000 millones de dólares, que será impulsado por su esposa MacKenzie Bezos.

Este nuevo fondo, que representa poco más de 1% de su patrimonio neto, llega en un momento en el que CEO y fundador de Amazon ha sido criticado por su falta de caridad, más ahora que su fortuna es la más grande del mundo para una sola persona.

Centrado en las personas sin hogar y la educación preescolar

A traves de un tweet, Jeff Bezos explicó, dentro de una larga carta, la creación de este fondo que ayudará a financiar una red de colegios preescolares, donde además se harán donaciones a organizaciones que ayudan a las personas y familias sin hogar. Es decir, estamos ante dos iniciativas: 'Day 1 Families Fund' y 'Day 1 Academies Fund'.

Dentro de este anuncio, no se especificó cómo se repartirá el dinero entre ambas iniciativas ni el periodo de tiempo que estarán vigentes. Sólo se hizo mención a algunos detalles de su objetivo, que como suele ocurrir en estos casos, todo está centrado en el "bienestar social", o al menos eso es lo que aseguran.

Según explica Bezos, el 'Day 1 Academies Fund' se encargará de lanzar y financiar una nueva red de colegios de educación preescolar. Estos nuevos colegios serán gratuitos, se ubicarán en zonas de bajos recursos y estarán inspirados en el método Montessori.

Mientras que el 'Day 1 Families Fund' consistirá en otorgar "premios anuales de liderazgo a organizaciones y grupos civiles que realicen trabajos compasivos que ayuden a proporcionar refugio y apoyo con el fin de satisfacer las necesidades inmediatas de las familias jóvenes en situación de calle".

Esta última iniciativa resulta curiosa, ya que Amazon fue la primera y más grande opositora hacia un proyecto de ley en Seattle que buscaba crear un impuesto para financiar refugios para personas sin hogar y viviendas para personas de bajos ingresos. Amazon se opuso rotundamente ya que esto le representaría un coste de 500 dólares anuales por cada uno de sus empleados en Seattle.

Bezos entra en la exclusiva lista de filántropos tecnológicos

Chan Zuckerberg Initiative#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Con la creación de este nuevo fondo 'Day 1', Jeff Bezos y su esposa se suman a la lista de empresarios tecnológicos multimillonarios que donan parte de su fortuna para programas sociales. Aquí sin duda el más famoso es el caso de Bill y Melinda Gates, quienes a través de la 'Gates Foundations' se han encargado de financiar una gran cantidad de proyectos no sólo en los Estados Unidos, sino en todo el mundo, y cuyo objetivo central es acabar con la pobreza.

También tenemos el caso de Mark Zuckerberg y su esposa Priscilla Chan, quienes a través de la 'Chan Zuckerberg Initiative' decidieron donar el 99% de sus acciones en Facebook, algo que lo hacia ver como un gran altruismo, pero que viéndolo más a fondo se trataba de una estrategia muy inteligente para invertir dinero libre de impuestos. De hecho, Zuckerberg siguió en esa línea y anunció hace dos años una inversión de 3.000 millones de dólares para tratar de "curar todas las enfermedades".

Aquí también se destaca el caso de Eric Schmidt, que tras 17 años al frente de Google decidió dejar la compañía para impulsar iniciativas filantrópicas. Algo similar a lo recién anunciando por Jack Ma, fundador de Alibaba y el hombre más rico de China, quien dejará su compañía el siguiente año para dedicarse al bienestar social y crear proyectos educativos.

Y sin tanto ruido mediatico tenemos el ejemplo de 'Good Ventures', la fundación de la periodista Cari Tuna y el también cofundador de Facebook Dustin Moskovitz, que ha donado ya más de 150 millones de dólares en los últimos años para "ayudar a la humanidad".

La realidad es que esto de la filantropía en multimillonarios no es algo nuevo, y mientras unos la usan como forma de retribución a la sociedad, hay otros que lo usan como mera herramienta para evadir impuestos. Donde a pesar de todo, al final se trata de una forma de beneficiar a aquellas personas que lo necesitan y que nunca está de más tener.

          Here's How Your Unique Behavioral Psychological Profile Is Being Used to Manipulate You      Cache   Translate Page      
Emmy Award-winning director and activist Josh Fox traces the arc of propaganda from 9/11 to Trump.

Opening with one of the key questions of our time, How do we know what's true?, Josh Fox, the Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated creator of the documentary that started the anti-fracking movement, Gasland, traces the arc of propaganda and misinformation from 9/11 to Trump from the perspective of the front lines in his debut book and new solo performance, "The Truth Has Changed" (Seven Stories Press, 2018). From 9/11 and the Iraq war, to fracking and the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, to Hurricane Sandy, to relentless smear campaigns against climate scientists, to the fight for 100 percent renewable energy, to Standing Rock, to the 2016 presidential campaign, to Cambridge Analytica, "The Truth Has Changed" mines Josh’s personal experiences to examine their impact on democracy and on the collective psyche of the United States.

The below excerpt, "The Ocean Inside You'," is from "The Truth Has Changed," the new book by Josh Fox, published by Seven Stories Press on September 11, 2018. Fox's solo performance, also called The Truth Has Changed, will tour nationally this fall to 40 venues in 23 Congressional districts.

In 2014, a young grad student from Warsaw named Michal Kosinski and some friends at Cambridge University’s Psychometrics Centre made a huge discovery. He could map your precise behavioral psychological profile to Facebook based on what you “liked.”

In the field of behavioral psychology, psychometrics are behavioral characteristics that can serve as predictors. Who you really are deep down and how you are going to behave. They are like currents in the ocean; you can see how something or someone is going to flow.

In fact, the acronym for the basic psychological traits that make up every human is OCEAN. O-C-E-A-N. As it turns out, you have an ocean inside you, and it tells us a lot about who you are. O for openness. How open are you to new ideas and to the world? C for conscientiousness. How meticulous or anal are you? E for extroversion. How much do you like people—how outgoing are you? A—agreeableness. How considerate are you and cooperative? And N, my favorite, neuroticism. How much are you an anxious, worried wreck? These five traits can give us your intimate psychological portrait.

But what Kosinski figured out was he could take behavioral psych data and plot it up against Facebook.

He developed something called the “My Personality App.” And just for kicks, just for fun, he got some of his friends to fill these questionnaires out. First a few hundred, but it went viral and hundreds of thousands of people filled them out. Kosinski matched that questionnaire data up against people’s Facebook profiles. Facebook told him what kinds of things we liked or didn’t like. And Kosinski mapped your OCEAN personality against your Facebook personality. And voilà, he could tell what your psychometric personality was from looking at Facebook alone. You no longer had to divulge your personality secrets. Facebook betrayed them for you. And he started to be able to predict people’s future behavior based on that model. He famously said, “If I know 70 of your likes on Facebook, that’s enough to outdo what your friends know about you. If I know 150 likes that you clicked on Facebook, I know you better than your parents know you.” And at 300 likes, Kosinski intimated, the algorithm knows you better than you know yourself.

The day comes, he publishes his results and he gets two phone calls. A threatened lawsuit and a job offer, he told a German magazine, both of them from Facebook.

Now your personality is in the matrix. You are telling your story to it.

And Google does this, too.

We knew already that Google was targeting certain people in certain areas. It’s called addressable-ad technology. But don’t forget, Google knows everything you are searching for. What you know, what you don’t know, and what you want, on an intimate level. And you buy your quest. With your credit card and all that data, the algorithm is being tipped off to all the things that you personally crave.

How deep is the ocean? What can it predict?

It’s a trope in marketing, it goes like this: “If we get them when they’re six months old, we have them as customers for life.” So Target, the superstore, actually created a program to predict which of its customers were pregnant, to market to them while their offspring were in utero. The story goes that based on their Google search data Target sent maternity guides to this one house in Michigan, and the father in the house went ballistic. He assaulted his local Target’s manager, waving these maternity brochures in the air, saying, “Why are you trying to convince my daughter, who is only seventeen, to have babies?” And a few weeks later, he calls up and says, “I’m so sorry. I didn’t realize. She was already pregnant.” Target knew this seventeen-year-old was pregnant before her dad did, based on her Google searches.

How deep is the OCEAN? Will it tell you no lies?

What kind of person are you? What kind of Democrat or Republican are you? Well, somehow, Cambridge Analytica got hold of the model, and harvested data from hundreds of millions of people, and started to use it to target specific, political messages to specific people. Do you remember when I got different Google results in Pennsylvania than in New York? This was as if every single person’s politics were being revealed by where they were, who they were, and what they were like on the inside.

This is based on you. Every single piece of information filtered through your personal algorithm. Your IP address, your Facebook feed. The men behind the algorithmic curtain can determine what you see and then profoundly influence what you do. And this has developed faster than the speed of morality.

Facebook actually had a way that advertisers could target certain things to certain races. If you were advertising an apartment on Facebook, you could specify that only white people—no black people—could see those posts. Twenty-first-century Jim Crow. And no one would know. Maybe that was the point.

It goes much further than even that. Every single major corporation is amassing this data. So that they can tailor what you see online specifically to you.

There are at least nine companies in America that have and sell this data. Have you heard of these companies?

Corelogic, Datalogix, eBureau, ID Analytics, Intelius, PeekYou, Rapleaf, Acxiom, and Recorded Future. They’ve heard of you! They know you better than you know yourself. And they’re selling your data. Every time you click those terms and conditions, every single time, you’re letting them into your Internet DNA.

They’re making reports on you all the time. Because, on one level, your cell phone is a constantly evolving, deepening, more and more profound psychological data test that you’re filling out all the time. Everywhere you go, everything that you buy, everything that you do, you’re leaving psychological tracks. Every one of your movements in the real world and the cyber world.

You are a constant cascade of statistics flowing through the machine.

And you are in a box, a category. Are you a “Millennial weekend psychopharmaceutical user?” Or a “Homebound thrifty senior who posts about cats and the environment?” Are you “New Age/organic lifestyle with patchouli on back order from Etsy,” or “Biker/Hell’s Angels into ’80s TV memorabilia?” “Member of five or more online shopping sites,” “people with pellet stoves,” “hypochondriacs that book doctor’s appointments after doing a lot of medical googling,” “those who have credit at a low-end grocery store,” “collectors of fetishistic Elvis tchotchkes”?

On and on. Household, race and ethnicity, surname, method of payment, number of orders, loans, financial data, presence of an elderly parent who is over seventy-five, presence of young children in the household with Xboxes, employed, white collar, unemployed, blue collar, work at home.

We spend all our time obsessing about you. Perfecting your personal algorithm to sell you to the highest bidder.

You’re not just 70 percent water and tissue and a bag of bones, you’re an open ocean of information.

The data swarms and dives like Niagara Falls.

Cambridge Analytica has amassed four to five thousand data points on every adult American.

And Alexander Nix, the head of Cambridge Analytica, famously came out, just a few weeks before the election, and announced that Donald Trump was using their services. Trump canvassers in Michigan and Wisconsin would go from household to household. Now, they didn’t just know your political leanings or party affiliation. The app told them who you were psychologically, with suggestions on how to tailor the conversation to the personality types of their target voters. Real, live addressable-ad tech. The app told them who you are, not just demographically—psycho-graphically. Trump and Cambridge Analytica knew you better than you knew yourself.

The demographic river that is flowing toward the Democrats—dammed and rerouted.

So on Facebook they could target ads against Hillary Clinton specifically pointed at black men only, and no one else would see them playing up that Hillary was a racist. Facebook even created a specific search pegged to the words “Jew hater.” But unless you searched for or were a Jew hater you couldn’t see it. These are called “dark posts.” And they could manipulate your Google searches.

Don’t like that? Too bad. The Internet is doing that to you every day. Four to five thousand data points on every American.

The Internet knows your sickness, but it doesn’t give you a cure. A collective cure. It gives your disease right back to you. Like an addiction, you get your mirror, falling toward you.

In fact, in the future, most newspaper articles will be written by machines. AI is already writing a lot of what you see in the newspaper. But it will be cheaper for AI to write five thousand stories that go to five thousand subscribers than for a publisher to pay one journalist who can write one that’s actually true. It will say something like, “You remember that it was cloudy on the day of your graduation, well, the Trump administration is facing similar storms this week . . .” That kind of thing. FAKE NEWS FOR YOU! FAKE NEWS FOR YOU! EVERYBODY GETS FAKE NEWS! A fake story for every “real” you!

CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX! John Podesta likes to have sex with young boys and code word “pizza”! Or GASLAND is a LIE and EVERYTHING JOSH FOX SAYS IS UNTRUE.

In certain places on the Internet, that IS what is true.

You won’t find the New York Times or Washington Post, actual journalism, until page four of your Google search. Buried wayyyyy down at the bottom. Real journalism sunk with an algorithmic Corexit to the bottom of the feed.

This is the balkanization of truth.

The psycho-crats have taken over.

But when Alexander Nix announced that he was helping Trump, he also said something that has implications far, far beyond any one election, any one political moment. He announced that in the future, our children will not understand the concept of mass marketing/mass communication. No more universal stories, you know? Every piece of data is going to be specifically targeted at you.

In the future, each of you will get your own slogan.

No more, as Shakespeare wrote about the theater, “all our minds transfigured so together.”

This is the new narrative. You get you, over and over again. Like the corporation speaking to you out of the mirror.

And let me tell you, the truth here is that we did this to us. This was Facebook, this was Google, this was American. And there is nothing that the “Russians bots” did that multinational oil companies haven’t been doing for more than a decade. We created a universe in which your truth is yours only. Steve Bannon, Robert Mercer, Americans.

You see only what they want you to see, which is what you want you to see. You are perpetually stuck up there at three thousand feet, the oil and toxicity floating on the OCEAN just looks like pretty sunshine lapping at the waves. You can’t see the toxicity.

You see, 9/11 was a shared event. It happened to all of us.

These people know YOUR 9/11, whatever it is. They know if that girl rejected you in the eighth grade. They know if you’re an angry white man, or a neurotic Asian woman. They know your wounds. They know your trauma. They know your scars.

They’re counting them. And they tailor that message to your vulnerability exclusively.

So what Steve Bannon and Andrew Breitbart did to me when I toured GASLAND, Cambridge Analytica, through Google and Facebook, figured out how to do to 200 million people. A smear campaign against reality itself.

I know, I was one of their beta tests. Look what they are doing to the Parkland kids now.

No longer the crude, costly method of tailing a single person around the country. Now they could get your intimate details, group them, advertise to them. It is as if they are following you around. Following millions of people around. Harassing your psyche. Learning your weaknesses, putting you through the wringer. A fear campaign aimed at everyone and everything, the fears that can push the electorate to where they want it to go.

Climb. Climb. Climb.

The Industrial Age left 150 years of pollution in the ground and centuries of CO2 and methane in the atmosphere. Pools of toxic chemicals in the actual earth, underneath the crust. To take all of that toxicity out, 150 years’ worth of toxicity, is probably going to be impossible.

But, you see, this is another level of pollution. Digital pollution. Toxic data everywhere. Remember that guy who drove all the way from North Carolina with an AR-15 and burst into the pizza place and shot it up, yelling, “Where are the kids?!” That’s the toxic cyber world invading the real world.

The cyber world is its own cyber truth. It may not have any relationship to analog truth. That’s a world where climate change really doesn’t exist. It’s a whole planet on which science is irrelevant.

And when the truth is lost in the cyberstorm, the men behind the algorithmic curtain get what they want. And right now, they’re winning.

First it was the election in Kenya in 2013. Then the Ukraine in 2014. Then Brexit. Then Mexican elections, Brazil impeachment, Malaysian and Australian elections. Cambridge Analytica’s hands across the world. And then, in that wilderness of mirrors, that haze when all of our individual truths pushed us into different corners of reality, America elects a racist, authoritarian, anti-science, climate-change-denying Cheeto.

And yes, one Saturday night at the stroke of midnight, Facebook, in the ultimate gesture of shutting the barn doors after the horses have run away, banned Cambridge Analytica.

But what you didn’t read in the New York Times is that Cambridge Analytica has had a contract with the State Department since March 2017. A year. The objective: to influence elections in dozens of countries around the world. A year’s worth of psychographic training.

Is Facebook going to kick out the State Department?

Then, in March 2018, Cambridge Analytica announced to the world that they were bankrupt and closing their doors. In the same month, however, practically the exact same board of directors and investors formed a brand-new company with the same mission. Emerdata.

Because long after the theatrics and the bad acting of Zuckerberg and Congress, these tools of influence will remain. They’re like the bomb. Part of our lives now. Of course, they want you to forget about them. They’re more effective that way.

Presidents may come and go, but the data is unimpeachable.

How do you know what’s true? How can you differentiate between a progressive-sounding Russian troll saying, “You’re using Russians to avoid looking at America,” from a progressive-sounding American troll saying, “You’re using Russians to avoid looking at America”?

And who gets paid better per hour? Isn’t that the whole American dream right there? Hope looking out on the horizon? And now, our heads forced down, staring, like Narcissus, at our own reflections in the palm-sized liquid crystal pools where we drown.

          Mark Zuckerberg admits Facebook needs help protecting the elections      Cache   Translate Page      

We’re now less than two months out from the US midterm elections, and the pre-emptive assurances about security from social media sites, particularly Facebook, are now colored by a sense of urgency. Today, CEO Mark Zuckerberg released a massive blog post detailing the steps the company has already taken to prevent further election interference, and spiced it up by calling on everyone who isn’t Facebook to step up as well. He’s probably justified in his need to comment. Just last week, Facebook‘s COO Sheryl Sandberg was testifying about election interference before Congress, meaning elected officials consider it a serious issue. Last year,…

          Facebook mieux préparé à lutter contre les manipulations électorales      Cache   Translate Page      
Facebook est «mieux préparé» contre les tentatives de manipulation d'élections, assuré jeudi son patron Mark Zuckerberg, alors que planent de nouvelles menaces sur les élections législatives américaines de novembre. Attaqué depuis des mois pour ne pas avoir pris assez au sérieux les campagnes de désinformation et de manipulation attribuées à une officine russe proche du Kremlin pendant la présidentielle américaine de 2016, Mark Zuckerberg s'emploie régulièrement à convaincre que Facebook a pris conscience de l'ampleur du problème et dépense de l'argent pour le combattre. Outre les campagnes de désinformation attribuées à la Russie - démenties par le Kremlin -, Facebook a aussi identifié «un réseau basé en Iran avec des liens avec le média d'État iranien essayant de diffuser de la propagande aux États-Unis, au Royaume-Uni et au Moyen-Orient», a rappelé le PDG du réseau social. Pour autant, a-t-il poursuivi, «nous faisons face à des adversaires sophistiqués et bien financés. Ils ne lâcheront pas et ils vont continuer à évoluer». Parallèlement, le groupe a aussi indiqué jeudi mettre à disposition de tous ses partenaires de vérification de faits dans le monde un outil technologique permettant de mieux repérer les images et vidéos truquées ou trompeuses.
