The Social Dilemma is billed as an expose of Silicon Valley's manipulative social media algorithms. But it's actually a manipulative ad for a thinktank funded by toxic corporate foundations.
I don't know who else has the background that you do about Internet surveillance, but it seems like a wide open lane. And your book deserves a larger audience. Don't laugh, but Joe Rogan?
Hi Yasha...given that Surveillance Valley was how I came across your work, I'd be keen to read that draft chapter if you have it sitting around...at this rate you're going to have to change your name to Morpheus ;-)
Very helpful, Yasha. We need this analysis more than ever.
Good work as usual. Minor typo if you're interested in fixing:
But that’s not something that the Silicon Valley insiders, millionaires, and thank-tankers who helped make The Social Dilemma are going to focus too much attention on. As far as they’re concerned, society’s been good [TO] them. What do they have to complain about?
Good info, as isusl, from Yasha Levine, about how things really work.
And wasn't New Knowledge the people who made the vote counting software that took out Berne in Las Vegas or somewhere like that?
