#BigTech: They're not just passively allowing #misinformation on their platforms (Zuckerberg). Tech tycoons like Peter Thiel have worked directly with #DisinformationDoctors. Funding at UCSF is a mess.

Then there's Cambridge Analytica's Patrick Fagan.
misinformationkills.substack.com/p/big-tech-big…
Thiel is an old Stanford friend of Great Barrington Declaration author Jay Battacharya and has been platforming his failed "Mass Infection" strategy.

The GBD is part of the Koch Industries-fueled anti-science effort (see: @EXPOSEDbyCMD, @CDPNetworkMap).
misinformationkills.substack.com/p/battacharya-…
Battacharya and his GBD co-author Martin Kulldorff are friendly with boomer tech bro millionaire Steve Kirsch whose @SubstackInc has been an organizing hub for far-right doctors - and politicians like @SenRonJohnson.

He got early funding from @elonmusk.

Excited for the first antitrust oversight hearing w/ both @linakhanFTC & @JusticeATR kicking off soon. Excited to hear what these Khan/Kan-do enforcers will discuss w/ @SenAmyKlobuchar. Tune in here: judiciary.senate.gov/meetings/overs….
.@SenAmyKlobuchar laying out long history of American antitrust enforcement, tracing back to the founding. America founded by those seeking economic freedom from monopolies.
More @SenAmyKlobuchar. Calls out list of bipartisan bills, including tech bills like S. 2992 w/ @ChuckGrassley. Well past time to get those passed.

.@TaylorLorenz and @washingtonpost with @cbouzy orchestrate a targeted hate campaign against @ThatUmbrella with the specific purpose of harassing him off YT. They are calling on @YouTube to delete his channel in an orchestrated campaign. They do the thing they accuse him of.
Also, notice how they are targeting YT CEO. She's been their darling for a long time but this is the signal that it could change instantly if she doesn't play along. This is a threat to her. "Do our bidding or you're next Susan!"
Watch out @SusanWojcicki. They're coming for you now. But if you stand up for the first amendment you'll win the admiration of millions instead of satisfying the bloodlust of a couple of weirdos paid by #AmberHeard who I remind you is a PUBLIC FIGURE. #NoCensorship

What is The American Innovation and Choice Online Act?

This thread aims to provide a simple explanation 👇

#AntitrustVoteNow
@SenSchumer
@SenSchumer Big tech is not a fan of the legislation.

Google, Apple, Amazon, Meta and have poured US$95 million into efforts to discredit these bills.

#AntitrustVoteNow @SenSchumer
More choice and less data-driven targeting and manipulation

An online pro-Trump prayer meeting was filled with defiance on Wed night @January6thCmte, even as evangelical & charismatic supporters of Trump admitted that chances the election will be overturned were slim.
Leaders of the Global Prayer for US Election Integrity have organized 30 prayer calls, in which they've aired unsubstantiated claims of election fraud, including several thoroughly debunked allegations, while offering fervent prayers for the president.
But as members of Congress debated an objection to accepting the certified vote totals from the 2020 election in Arizona, organizers of the prayer call admitted there were few legal options left to oppose President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

(1/9) Today, my fellow Nobel laureate #dmitrymuratov and I are proud to launch an action plan to tackle the information crisis unleashed by Big Tech & rebuild independent journalism. Here’s why:
(2/9) The huge potential of technology to advance our societies has been hijacked by #BigTech and a business model that deliberately promotes hate & hate & lies for profit.
(3/9) This is an existential threat to democracy & peace. For facts to stand a chance, we must end the amplification of disinformation by tech platforms and invest in journalism as the antidote to tyranny.

The Deep State progressives behind Joe Puppet are the actual "fascists" They're creating an all powerful State via endless executive orders, vax mandates, weaponizing gov against political foes & censoring speech & info, with MSM & #BigTech in their pocket...
Dems no longer hide their intention to stack the Court, remove the filibuster, & add new states, even as they import millions of potential voters via illegal migration & manipulate our system to make vote fraud easier...
So Biden has great nerve calling #MAGA "semi-fascists." He STOLE the election with help from the FBI, #BigTech, and MSM burying the Hunter Biden story.

These disgraceful hypocrites ALREADY overturned democracy, they just don't want YOU to find out!

Thread on corporate America. Too may conservatives are caught up in a 1990’s business school view of laissez-fair economics assuming those corporations are acting to maximize shareholder value as opposed to advancing an agenda & are acting removed from corporate cronyism… (1/8)
…Instead, corporate America is - across multiple industries - using massive market power combined with government-corporate cronyism to impact negatively - in real time - the lives, liberty, & ability to pursue happiness of the American people… (2/8)

„Digitales Publizieren und die Qualitätsfrage“

🧵 zum Stand der Dinge, nach dem Workshop des @Projekt_AuROA (projekt-auroa.de/digitales-publ…). Zugleich eine Zusammenfassung für jene, die im Sinne guter wissenschaftlicher Praxis veröffentlichen wollen:

#auroa22 #GeiWiPublizieren
Klar scheint:
1) #DigitalesPublizieren hält viele Potenziale für bessere Wissenschaft bereit.
2) #BigTech hat absurde Angebote & Abhängigkeiten implementiert, die Wissenschaft nicht verbessern. (Seit 2016 schlimmer geworden, vgl. .)

#auroa22 #Siggenthesen
3) Es ist dringend an der Zeit, wieder zu dem zu kommen, was Wissenschaft eigentlich benötigt.
4) Von Verlagen unabhängige scholar-led Magazine sind eine Alternative.
5) Eine andere ist die engere Zusammenarbeit von Wissenschaft & kleineren/mittleren Verlagen.

Impostazione stroncata nella redazione del #PNRR e nell’allocazione delle risorse, compresa la sparizione dell’Istituto della Cybersicurezza (realizzato invece a livello europeo e dagli altri Paesi UE). Da ultimo la scelta di ridurre anche il controllo pubblico della rete 👇

Brazil’s #FakeNews Bill has a new draft amending the #RemunerationRule requiring tech platforms to pay for publishers’ news content. It's nice that the drafters tried again with this underspecified rule, but it's still not ready to be a law. Congress should delete the rule. 1/
In our analysis, we explained why a remuneration rule has no place in this bill.

Tldr: relying on copyright to get a fair deal for publishers is a dangerous gambit, with consequences for media monopolization, free expression and the free press. 2/

eff.org/deeplinks/2022…
The rule assumes that copyright gives publishers the power to license (and thus control and block) quoting and discussing the news.

Rather than giving a cultural veto to publishers, lawmakers and regulators should address adtech, and promote competition and transparency. 3/
