We shouldn’t be asking Facebook to fix the problem. We should be fixing Facebook. It’s our collective misfortune that this perhaps silliest-in-history supercorporation – a tossed-off hookup site turned international cat-video vault turned Orwellian surveillance megavillain – has dragged us all to the very cliff edge of modern technological capitalism. We’ve reached a moment in history where many companies are more powerful than even major industrialized nations, and in some cases have essentially replaced governments as de facto regulators and overseers. But some of those companies suck just a little too badly at the governing part, leaving us staring into a paradox. The Russians call this situation a sobaka na sene, a dog on the hay. Asleep in the manger, the dog itself won’t eat the hay. But it won’t let you eat it either. We’ve got to get the dog off the hay. For much of the past year and a half, the Social Network has been everywhere … [Read more...] about Can We Be Saved From Facebook?
“I wanted him to stop,” Andrea Constand said today on the stand of Day 2 of Bill Cosby’s criminal trial for allegedly raping the then-Temple University employee in 2004. “In my head, I was trying to get my hands to move and my legs to move but I was frozen,” she told the Norristown, PA courtroom of the attack with the actor sitting close by. “I wasn’t able to fight him away.” “I felt humiliated and I felt confused,” she added of the alleged sexual assault. “I just wanted to go home.” Constand admitted she and Cosby did have a conversation the next morning, which she can’t recall from that January day more than 13 years ago.

Breaking News … Refresh for latest live-blogging from London … UPDATE: James Murdoch confidently and steadfastly maintained that he has been cooperative and fully forthcoming about what he knew and did not know when he testified at his previous appearance before MPs. Facing hostile questioning and bristling at suggestions the business under his supervision was like the mafia, Murdoch cooly but aggressively continues to maintain he was never informed of the specific contents of a damning email about the News Of The World‘s level of involvement or that there was any evidence of widespread phone-hacking. In a stark “they said/he said” contradiction of the former executives’ assertions, he reiterated that former News International lawyer Tom Crone and News Of The World former editor Colin Myler never showed him or disclosed to him all the legal documents surrounding the phone-hacking scandal. When asked about Crone and Myler’s assertions that he … [Read more...] about James Murdoch Bristles But Never Falters In 2nd Appearance Before Parliament
