“I don’t know what the Michael Pollan version would be: Eat independent sites, mostly not Facebook?” says Glitch CEO Anil Dash, who helped create some early social web tools 15 years ago at Six Apart and has long argued that tech needs to reintroduce community and user control.

(Unlike the dark, closed goggles of VR, AR glasses use see-through technology to insert virtual apparitions into the real world.) Eventually we’ll be able to search physical space as we might search a text—“find me all the places where a park bench faces sunrise along a river.” We will hyperlink objects into a network of the physical, just as the web hyperlinked words, producing marvelous benefits and new products.
Maybe by the time Disney releases the film on May 24 the blue will be better. Until then, Twitter will be busy turning images of Smith's Genie into everything from Jack Nicholson's character from The Shining to remixes of the Star Is Born meme from last year.

“We could use an infinite amount of data to train the deep learning engine, because we were using simulations.” The researchers generated tens of thousands of simulated evolutionary histories based on differing combinations of demographic details: the number of ancestral human populations, their sizes, when they diverged from one another, their rates of intermixing and so on.
For his contribution to the book project, Solarski photographed working sanatoriums in the former Soviet provinces of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Crimea.

To protect the public interest and their own businesses, these companies should set up a robust self-regulatory organization along the lines of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), an SRO that derives its authority from the Securities and Exchange Commission. FINRA provides a valuable blueprint for how a self-regulatory organization for the search and social media industry might work.
It followed a now familiar pattern: Mueller’s court filing included voluminous detail, including insight into the internal decision-making process of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign—and yet the indictment stopped short of alleging that Stone was part of a larger conspiracy.
And yet, thanks to years of budget cuts and a series of scaled-back field tests, some fear the Census Bureau and the broader US government are ill-equipped to handle any new issues that could arise as a result of the high-tech census, particularly at a time when hackers and propagandists seem to be working overtime to undermine American institutions.
