#Algorithms of #Resistance: The Everyday #Fight against Platform #Power


Download #eBook - pdf: https://direct.mit.edu/books/oa-monograph/5721/Algorithms-of-ResistanceThe-Everyday-Fight-against

Algorithms are all around us, permeating more and more aspects of our daily lives. While accounts of platform power tend to come across as bleak and monolithic, Algorithms of Resistance shows how people can resist algorithms across a variety of domains. Drawing from rich ethnographic materials and perspectives from both the Global North and South, authors Tiziano Bonini and Emiliano Treré explore how people appropriate and reconfigure algorithms to pursue their objectives in three domains of everyday life: gig work, cultural industries, and politics. They reveal how forms of algorithmic agency and resistance are endemic and mundane and how the platform society is a contested battleground of contrasting forces.

Second Factor #SMS: Worse Than Its Reputation


Source: https://www.ccc.de/en/updates/2024/2fa-sms

IdentifyMobile, a provider of 2FA-SMS, shared the sent one-time passwords in real-time on the internet. The #CCC happened to be in the right place at the right time and accessed the data. It was sufficient to guess the subdomain "idmdatastore". Besides SMS content, recipients' phone numbers, sender names, and sometimes other account information were visible.

#Chrome Lets #Google Websites #Access Your #System #CPU & #GPU Usage

Recently, software developer #LucaCasonato found out that Chrome gives all Google websites full access to system/tab CPU, GPU, and memory usage as well as detailed processor information and logging backchannel. "This is interesting because it is a clear violation of the idea that #browser vendors should not give preference to their websites over anyone else's," he said on X/Twitter. "Depending on how you interpret the DMA, this additional exposure of information only to Google properties may be considered a #violation of the #DMA."

Heja Chile 🎉

"Precis som dricksvatten, avlopp och elektricitet har internet nu blivit en mänsklig rättighet i Chile."

https://www.dn.se/varlden/internetuppkoppling-blir-mansklig-rattighet-i-chile/

Med tanke på hur vi bara blir allt mer beroende av uppkoppling, även för ärenden till kommun, Region och staten, så vore det bra om Sverige tar efter Chile.

På sikt tror jag 5-10 MB bandbredd kommer bli fritt för alla överallt. Det kommer då accelerera förbättringar kring samhällsservice och annat massor.

So Pirate-Bay's only fault was that they weren't a multimillion tech company that can easily ignore copyright. 🤔

»Microsofts KI-Chef – Webinhalte sind für jeden frei kopierbar, auch für KI:
Microsofts KI-Chef hat mal eben sämtliche Webinhalte für frei verfügbar erklärt. Er berief sich im Interview mit einem US-Journalisten darauf, dass es seit den 1990er-Jahren ja üblich sei, dass alle Inhalte von jeder­mann frei verwendet werden können, wenn man nicht widerspricht.«

"25+ Years of Daily Show Clips Gone as Paramount Axes Comedy Central Site"

This is why we can have nice things ... for long. Because, sooner or later, someone decides not to spend the money to keep it. And this is an especially key thing related to the #Internet, where anything can disappear at the click of a mouse, or a switch on a server.

Wooow, just got a reply after 17 years. That's a long time during the era of Internet 😂 Last.fm shoutbox is one of those few things that have been existing the whole time since the early 2000s.

The war on friction


source: https://www.therebooting.com/the-war-on-friction/

The tech giants believe they should control the interface. Controlling the interface used to mean controlling the distribution. The zero-click vision that’s increasingly taking hold will mean publishers and their webpages are regarded as friction standing in the way of people getting what they want immediately, without wading through full-screen interstitial ads, endless pop-ups and autoplay video. That’s going to be a compelling proposition. It will also conveniently accrue all power to the interface and relegate publishers to content vendors.
