I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change
4/ #Language matters #UseOfLanguage matters even more #Theory matters Developing #reading & critical #thinking skills Alongside that ability for #thinking in other modes matters #Art #Writing #Music #Playing #Listening #Attention & enjoying difference matters #Futures #Humanities
Re upping this tweet of mine here: " #Brexit #BrexitReality #MuelleInvestigation Interesting the publications with AdTech the likes of this keeps showing up on" :
8/ Growing up in a household & a culture that accepts & understand advertising is a means to an end, uses varieties of media, & increasingly, on a foreign-originally-to-us model obfuscates its origins & agenda, has stood to me since about the age of 3 Thank you #familiy & #school
9/ The age of a #public #internet has brought more challenges, we've been to the forefront of some of these in both positive & sadly negative ways in various countries as well as here. Silicon Valley didn't happen in a vaccum. Where a nexus of potential power & control may be
10/ perceived to be 'for sale' by those who are simply greedier themselves, for themselves, than actually ambition for their work, field, company, or 'the world' in terms of sustainable development, employment, resources, is not a new phenomenon. Neither is it purely an outcome
11/ of one kind of #economy historically. So to say simplistically that 'capitalism' is 'to blame' for all societal ills is a type of anachronistic misanthropism, heavy on soundbites & slogans, light on positive action or the work necessary to sustain & develop the actual postive
12/ societal changes that are already in place & evolving. Sometimes maybe the most #realistic questions are types of 'what can I do best to sustain & grow most effectively what has already been born? How do I #nurture #change for the #CommonGood right now? Tiny acorns Great oaks
13/Yes I'm poking your cultivated anger, your media fed prejudices, your perhaps socially-engineered angsts, which doesn't mean they or their causes or objects of concern are not real. It does mean they need to be quite constantly & honestly critically reassessed & contextualised
14 Unroll please @threadreaderapp typos and all! Thanks.
