THREAD 2 -LARGE INVESTORS

The #vegan option promises a new market horizon to a corporate system in need of expansion. In addition to novel product lines developed by transnational companies, business operations are launched as ambitious tech #startups.

#SiliconValley & other large investors are attracted in support of a model that will activate supply chains, market speculations, & trade wars over what are expected to be the resources of the future.

Financial #speculation has become key to overcome the stagnation tendencies of global markets. Global money management can be narrowed down to some 17 financial giants, collectively managing >$40 trillion in a self-invested network of interlocking capital.

The problem with (and for) #SiliconValley is their lack of #entrepreneurship. Yes, really: they're bad at being entrepreneurs, at providing the entrepreneurial function in the economy. To put it differently, they are technology driven in their profit-seeking but not consumer
driven. The difference is monumental both for the economy and the companies, and this is why they're failing. No, failing doesn't mean they are necessarily losing money, but that their profits are short-term and that they are undermining their own market positions. The business
they are in is not sustainable. This goes way beyond the selling of eyeballs, which is the focus of Facebook, Twitter, Google, and others. As it's often said, if you are not the paying for the product you *are* the product. Facebook is selling you, and your future purchases, to

Even though I haven't been a big fan of Twitter threads so far, a lot of people I know have made 100-tweet threads for @threadapalooza so I thought I'll give it a try as well. I will start with #APIs and hopefully end up connecting them with the #FutureOfWork. Let's go ...

🧵⬇️
First of all, when I talk about #APIs, I mean HTTP-based interfaces connecting apps and backend servers as well as different services with each other. For now, the technical details, such as whether they use REST, GraphQL, gRPC etc., shall not matter. (1/100)
When humans interact with computers they require a user interface (UI), and when machines interact with each other they need application programming interfaces (APIs). At the end of the day, however, these have to be implemented by humans. Good #APIDesign considers both. (2/100)

The software industry, i.e. #SiliconValley*#WallStreet is *the most corrupt* industry because unlike hardware ("physical stuff") or the service industry ("human beings"), software is made a complete mystery.
However, if we start with the #recursive-#algorithm:

Step 1. Have faith in the #recursive algorithm.
Step 2. Feed the outputs back into the algorithm.
Step 3. Repeat.

Then we can began to understand how software systems work.
Simple example "farming":

Step 1. Plant seeds, have faith!
Step 2. Take the seeds you produce & sow them back in the soil.
Step 3. Repeat!

That dude exemplifies the way people now think the internet extends only to the borders of YouTube and Instagram. SF has convinced average people that their shitty websites is all the internet needs and that they can gatekeep ownership of all content. FUCK THAT! as i use twtr lol
sorry for that tweet-chain, got a bit pissed off at the way things are going for a while there. may as well hashtag this with something relevant, idk I guess #NetNeutrality
The con really is near completion, sadly. Everyone knows how this conversation ends up:
"Hey, can you please help my new business out by creating a presence on the internet for us to get ourselves out there?"
Even only ten years ago, at least half the time, the answer would be:

#VoterFraud
#California is NOT updating #VoterRoll UNLESS you barrage them with calls and emails for months, & personally send proofs. And even then it appears one has to fill out a special FORM and MAIL it to County Voter Registrar Office.
@POTUS @GavinNewsom #Election2020
My mother passed away in Nov'19. In Jan'20 I submitted #DeatCertificate to #SSI. Checking on her #VoterStatus I saw her still #active in the #VoterRoll. So I started sending emails and making phone calls to the CA Commissioner, to the County Voter Registrar. #VoterFraudIsReal
The first email I sent in May'20. No reply. I resent it. Automated reply came in July'20. I Called the County Voter Registrar Office (CVRO). Left a voice mail. No returned calls. I sent an email cc-ing everyone in the CVR office. #VoterFraudIsReal

So it turns out that not only is @zoom_us' #FacialRecognition #algorithm so #racist it chops black people's heads off...

..but @Twitter's image processing #algorithms are #racist too:



It's getting to the point where we need an industry reboot; if #SiliconValley genuinely wants to build '#EthicslAI', it must delete 'em all and start again. Respecting #HumanRights this time.

Beware #SiliconValley. #Kaepernick got the NFL all wokey but it wasn’t enough. He wants to dictate how they recruit and hire talent, not by ability but by wokeness.

theresurgent.com/2020/09/14/kap…
After the NFL is conquered and the folks who say they just want “diversity” have enough power, they are coming for you #SiliconValley. Your boardrooms, your overly white and Asian engineers. Slogans won’t cut it when they can have your position.
Of course, #SiliconValley, like the NFL, hires the best for very competitive jobs. So as football becomes more about lockstep groupthink and less about, uh, football, tech will become more about paying people to preen at a keyboard and not, uh, great products. Be warned.

#TikTok doesn't provide data to the Chinese government. #Facebook does.

Actually not only does it cooperate with #CIA, it's more CIA than CIA. It plays James Bond itself & spies on its users. It's darn proud & brags abt it.

Meanwhile #TikTok is punished for what Facebook does
Besides being a spy hub for #US government, #Facebook is also racist.

A Chinese engineer was fired in 2019 for lack of judgment bcz he joined a protest for the suicide of a Chinese colleague who suffered harassment. Persecution of Chinese scientists will destroy #SiliconValley

Another #AntiIndia #Hinduphobic development thanks to #Islamists, #WokeRadicals, and last but not the least @EqualityLabs

Here's @shambhav15 on these EL geniuses :
@EqualityLabs @shambhav15 That this farce was allowed to happen in #SiliconValley with thousands of Hindu Indian techies there speaks to their collective apathy to #Hinduphobia and #Islamism
Local Indian and Hindu associations should introspect and regroup to block further drama from these malicious parties.

Simon touches on a key point in his first item.

As with #falsifiability in #science, in #practice '#ethics' only work in the context of a #profession or #community *from which one can be #excluded*.

Those wishing to be #trusted as #ethical must stop issuing '#principles' and...
..setting up #EthicsBoards like @Google's or private courts like @Facebook's @OversightBoard (both demonstrating how poorly #BigTech grasps basic concepts like #justice, let alone #ethics, and how both - as #sovereign powers - have utterly misconceived #community) and start to...
...genuinely #professionalise.

Not in the shitty, self-serving, #cartel-like fashion of many companies & industry bodies in tech, advertising - and yes, DP & privacy - but in broader, deeper, more #connected ways that *could* deliver the #trustworthy #institutions of the future.

This is an easy thing to say when you haven't been following what #KamalaHarris has done for California. She has let white-collar crime slide.
#KamalaHarris has let criminals in-state who have shafted utility payers slide.

She let someone who I don't think that @thomaskaine5 is a fan of (well, I'm assuming that) slide, too.

If there's a large migration of talented people from SF and NYC to Austin, Austin has a shot at being the next Silicon Valley.

Remember: Texas actually has a long tradition of innovation.

For example, the integrated circuit was invented at Texas Instruments.

More recently, Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Apple have announced major campuses in Austin.

Google is building a new riverside building, and Facebook already has one.

As we close this year and think about the decade ahead, nothing has impacted us more than technology. Arguably, social media platforms have become the central nervous system of our communication worldwide.
It’s so important that we understand how these platforms that were created to connect us are being weaponized against us. We need to understand how our data is being monetized, how micro-targeting for political ads works, who has our information and how they are using it.
We’re coming into 2020 with tons of new information to keep the conversation going. Thank you to everyone who has watched the film and created awareness in your communities.
