Observations on film art : Lie to me: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE

"Suppose your story situation is this. Character A is telling a story, but it’s a lie. Character B realizes it’s a lie, but doesn’t signal that recognition. This is really two problems in one: How do you tell the audience A is lying? And how do you convey that B knows but doesn’t reveal that knowledge?"

The New Governors: The People, Rules, And Processes Governing Online Speech - Kate Klonick

"Private online platforms have an increasingly essential role in free speech andparticipation in democratic culture. But while it might appear that any internet user canpublish freely and instantly online, many platforms actively curate the content posted bytheir users. How and why these platforms operate to moderate speech is largely opaque. This Article provides the first analysis of what these platforms are actually doing tomoderate online speech under a regulatory and First Amendment framework."

Blockchain-based systems are not what they say they are

“If you go out seeking to learn why blockchains and the systems built atop them are apparently the future of our web, you’ll begin to see some common themes. These fall apart under further scrutiny.”

Why Don't We Just Use Material Design? | Webdesigner Depot

'The question posed in that meeting (Why don’t we just use Material Design?) reverses the design process in a way that epitomizes the problem with any design system. The question that should have been asked was: “Would employing Material Design solve some, or all, of our problems?”'

STAMPing on event-stream

"The goal of a STAMP-based analysis is to determine why the events occurred… and to identify the changes that could prevent them and similar events in the future. 1 One of my big heroes is Nancy Leveson, who did a bunch of stuff like the Therac-25 investigation and debunking N-version programming. She studies what makes software unsafe and what we can do about that. More recently she’s advocated the “STAMP model” for understanding systems."

Untold AI: Tone over time

"When we begin to look at AI stories over time, as we did in the prior post and will continue in this one, one of the basic changes we can track is how the stories seem to want us to feel about AI, or their tone. Are they more positive about AI, more negative, or neutral/balanced?"

Creation and consumption

"There's a pretty common argument in tech that though of course there are billions more smartphones than PCs, and will be many more still, smartphones are not really the next computing platform, just a computing platform, because smartphones (and the tablets that derive from them) are only used for consumption where PCs are used for creation. You might look at your smartphone a lot, but once you need to create, you'll go back to a PC. There are two pretty basic problems with this line of thinking. First, the idea that you cannot create on a smartphone or tablet assumes both that the software on the new device doesn't change and that the nature of the work won't change. Neither are good assumptions. "

From Tape Drives to Memory Orbs, the Data Formats of Star Wars Suck (Spoilers)

"Rogue One is a great addition to the Star Wars universe because it takes a glaringly stupid plot mechanism—the exhaust port vulnerability in the Death Star—and attributes it to an architect’s sabotage. One of the dumbest things about the Star Wars franchise then becomes something sad, poignant, and believable. But Rogue One also raises new questions about its fictional world. Some really burning, important questions. Like, what’s the deal with the disk formats of the Star Wars universe?"

Kano Model Analysis

"Kano Model Analysis is a useful technique for deciding which features you want to include in a product or service. It helps you break away from a profit-minimizing mindset that says you've got to have as many features as possible in a product, and helps you think more subtly about the features you include."
