"Argument-Making in the Wild"

Today's SFI Seminar by Simon DeDeo (@LaboratoryMinds), streaming now. Follow our thread for pull quotes and slides:

First, let's divide human history into three eras, or regimes of #knowledge #production and #consumption:

• #premodern/#archaic
• #modern + #postmodern
• the #egregore (online content sharing)

• The premodern era is defined by caloric restriction.
• The modern era is characterized by a small number of sellers of #information vs. a large number of consumers (see also #HerbertSimon's remarks on the "poverty of #attention")

Many of us have a #cybersecurity horror story about "an employee who got fired as a precaution, only later for the firm to realize their mistake, but HR just wished them thoughts & prayers because they couldn't bear to face up to their hasty firing assumptions."

We in cybersecurity insist we operate on data, facts, and logic.

But the truth is we love a good #ConspiracyTheory, and right now it's all about BSides Cleveland.

You'll find any number of people, e.g. @MalwareTechBlog, who believe whats-his-name had inside help.

Hutchins is invested in his theory and has put his money where his mouth is. Me, I'm risking $500 just to prove a point I made in the mid-1980s:

"That we never should have kicked Airman Snuffy out of the Air Force 'as a precaution'!"

I want @robtlee and @RobertMLee to...

@thegrugq Your video promotes two #UrbanLegends at the 18:09 mark. I'll begin with the latter: that Ukrainian artillerymen are KIA over an infected phone app.

@CrowdStrike created this #myth in a hysterical report they were compelled to "update" in March 2017:
crowdstrike.com/blog/danger-cl…
@thegrugq @CrowdStrike Ukraine's ministry of defense refuted CrowdStrike's "deadly" claims. An alleged source claims CrowdStrike made errors.

Regardless how plausible you think it is, there exists NO evidence of soldiers dying over the use of malware-laden phone apps.
voanews.com/a/crowdstrike-…
@thegrugq @CrowdStrike You've fallen for one of many #UrbanLegends where no evidence exists.

Now comes the hard part.

Will you face up to getting duped?

Or will you rationalize it, perhaps by saying it will convince soldiers not to use potentially malware-laden phone apps on the battlefield?

'Abolish #AustraliaDay': Captain Cook statue covered in 'blood' by vandals au.yahoo.com/news/abolish-a… <--- "Blood." This like so many stories now. Seemingly isolated act by "lone wolf" vandals. MSM "reports" on it. IMO it's orchestrated (at arm's length) by #Cabal for comms.

#Medium #Mediumship, was reading an old #Tufts@TuftsDaily⁩ article from 2008 interviewing ⁦@jessicaalba⁩ about her film #TheEye, watched the trailer:
you do see how see people died, though, if contacted by the deceased, they share their personality, images of what is relevant, what they think is, which can be difficult; I take #antidepressants, and, am #healing myself from illness, some #trauma, too, and, was seeing more,
earlier in my healing, and believe it is crucial to have a filter/level of #health with, a pretty well-known #medium told me he also got very sick with #pnemonia, I had #mycoplasmapnemonae, in #MeCFS #CFS, had #Lyme #LymeDisease, too, and, the information is for #healing,

@DrEricDing I love it when so-called 'experts' comment on matters they know nothing about.

So here are some facts:

//thread
@DrEricDing #Omicron IS a mild virus. Data from South Africa (and now England) PROVES that and is confirmed by Chief Medical Officers. To suggest otherwise is medically illiterate and unscientific #conspiracytheory

@DrEricDing Staff shortages in the #NHS are arising due to excessive testing amongst asymptomatic staff & the policy of self-isolation in the event of a +ve test result, using a test that according to the CDC does not distinguish between CV & the flu.

Lies people tell about #Water
Part: 1

"We can find charlatans peddling #snakeoil in a wide variety of spheres, but there are quite a lot of lies that are told specifically about water. It's such a ubiquitous substance, everywhere around us, and inside of us,
and since we need it to survive,it's fertile grounds for #pseudoscience. What kinds of lies do people tell about water?There are many colorful examples we will cover,but this first part will focus on the main #conspiracy surrounding water & that is the fluoridation of tap water.
From government mind control to neurotoxic effects, there is no shortage of #misinformation associated with this incredible achievement of modern society, so let's run through the most common talking points and see what they're all about, shall we?

The torrent of #racist #disinformation in Ireland in the few days since the tragic killing of #GeorgeNkencho has shown it’s driven by a very vocal minority, in concert around key accounts. Co-ordinated, deliberate #FarRight agitators supporting Irish neo-nationalist groups. ImageImageImageImage
Many of these accounts are bulk generators of #racist and #conspiracy content across social media platforms. Well-established among these propagandists is the avowedly racist and #AntiSemitic YouTuber, Keith Woods - aka #NUIG graduate Keith O’Brien of Roscommon #AltShiteUnmasked ImageImageImageImage
#Racist Keith O’Brien generates masses of #FarRight #Propaganda, to 29k subscribers on @YouTube alone. Voices like this are pivotal to local #AltRight movements, but Ireland is small and #AltShiteUnmasked all have real names, addresses, streets they walk down, and a job... ImageImage
