Ransomware has become a scourge for organizations around the world. While this may seem to be an inevitability to some due to how technically simple it is, I believe crypto is the variable allowing it to thrive and improve funding for criminal orgs (like terrorists). 1/18

This is bonkers compared to the Great Recession recovery.
MORGAN STANLEY: The US is seeing β€œthe strongest capex cycle since the 1940s, driven by business investment in equipment and intellectual property rights. In the US, capex should reach the pre-Covid trend as early as 4Q this year.”

"... lazy is more slur than observation." This @Noahpinion substack guest piece is both wholesome and persuasive! @economeager and @KarlMuth wrote this beautifully. I encourage even my non-econ circles to read it. noahpinion.substack.com/p/pe…

I stopped worrying about the robot war dogs once Dr Sarah Taber explained that you can defeat them with a super soaker and some soap:
Replying to @SarahTaber_bww
These robots look super-vulnerable to normal wear & tear. They look even more vulnerable to a super-soaker filled with common household items like salt, vinegar, & just a lil dish soap. Maybe with a lil diatomaceous earth to bump up the scrubbing power.

I missed it at the time, but USA Today did a big investigative piece (HT: @rrpre) in 2017 on the poor treatment of the port truck drivers, including financing arrangements that often drove them into bankruptcy. Piece was a Pulitzer finalist. usatoday.com/pages/interacti…

While yes, it's a little different algorithmically since almost everything you search for on Amazon puts their product first (if it exists). It's like if everyone had 1 person following them around the store putting Amazon products at eye level at all times.
Target, Walmart, and all supermarkets do this with their store brand products.

We need to decide if that's okay or not. Retail kinda snuck the practice in while we went all lax on anti-trust enforcement (and we still are). Now the volume is being turned up to 11 on Amazon. We should seriously discuss if this is what we want our retail markets to look like.

This is one of the funniest things i’ve ever seen, i didn’t even know you Could have deflation in an MMO!
I love MMOs. A deflationary currency crisis in Amazon's New World has gotten so bad that some players have started using the barter system.

Incidentally, everyone should know the story of Thomas Midgley, who oversaw the invention & spread of both leaded gas AND chlorofluorocarbons. He had, as J. R. McNeill wrote β€œmore impact on the atmosphere than any other single organism in earth’s history.” interestingengineering.com/t…

If every thought you ever spoke has been so bland that it being stapled to your passport and a Google search away from any employer, police officer, friend, or online follower for the entirety of your life is not something that horrifies you intensely, then honestly I pity you.

Take this as an argument for or against as you will, but for reference if this law had existed I would certainly never have created this account.
Priti Patel is considering removing the right to anonymity on social media to tackle online MP abuse. 78% of Brits think everybody should have to disclose their identity when signing up, with 37% saying it should have to be displayed on the profile yougov.co.uk/topics/technolo…

Clearly he's not very happy with these search results.
Google's terrible search results show why AI is no substitute for human judgment. You'd have a better search engine if you just hired 10000 people to go one by one through every question and keyword they can conceive of, research good answers, and pick the 20 best sources on it.

A reminder that these are the people that normally tear down homeless encampments and harass them repeatedly, also as PR stunts. These homeless people they're feeding are just props for them, nothing more.
NOW: Seattle firefighters and Seattle police officers that were fired for not complying with the vaccine mandate are out feeding the homeless.
