WaPo: 98 personal data points that Facebook uses to target ads to you.

Astonishing. I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am. What concerns me more is the creation of ... no term for this yet ... ‘economic vacuum chambers’. As we see Republicans and Dems split off to ideological vacuum chambers, these targeted ads are feeding us product and services in ‘perceived’ economic and interest categories. What if I don’t fit the profile, but I’d really like an aged steak? Will I be served endless ads for Wal-Mart ground beef? What does this do to a person’s overall character, not to mention aspirations? Not describing this well, but I hope you get my drift. Many of these ‘feed them what they routinely view’ algorithms encourage and vivify terrible habit formation.

vowe dot net: Move from Evernote to OneNote on a Mac.

I think I’ve expressed before, if I were starting from scratch, I’d look closer at Eaglefiler. I don’t use Evernote or OneNote regularly from mobile devices. Though, as with all things digital, that will likely change.

FishbowlNY: NPR Is Closing Its Comments Section.

Montgomery added that social media provides a much better platform for discussing NPR stories than the site’s comments section. He’s right, of course.” Um, Twitter just encourages snark. So I respectfully disagree.

FishbowlNY: The Drudge Report Meets Usain Bolt.

In the month of July, there were a total of 2,678,400 news-making seconds. If you divide the Drudge July page views total by that number, you get an average of 549.66 page views per second.” One look at the DR, you feel the world’s falling apart. As bad as Amazon’s “Most Read” email, if not worse. Do we as a society really love bad news this much?

TechDirt: DNC Claims That Wikileaks Has ‘Malware Embedded Throughout The Site’.

We’ve seen various organizations impacted by Wikileaks come up with all sorts of excuses and claims about why people shouldn’t use the site, but “the site is embedded with malware” is a new one. It also seems hellishly unlikely.

Were the DNC emails ‘tampered with’?

This is the original article for this rumor, being widely misinterpreted. Scroll down to paragraph beginning “The metadata in the leaked documents ...” and read from there (if you want to cut to the chase on this subject).

Money quote: “Although so far the actual content of the leaked documents appears not to have been tampered with, manipulation would fit an established pattern of operational behaviour in other contexts, such as troll farms or planting fake media stories.”

The media is presenting this all over the ideological map. Beware what/who you believe on this one.
