Today I had a pleasant surprise. My site was looked up by google. I am important enough now to be noticed by the search engine. I want to thank all of you, especially my followers and people who reblog my stuff. I couldn’t have done it without your help.

Facebook wants to trick you into thinking that privacy protections or changes to Section 230 alone will be sufficient. While important, these will not get to the core of the issue — which is that no one truly understands the destructive choices made by Facebook except Facebook. We can afford nothing less than full transparency. As long as Facebook is operating in the shadows, hiding its research from public scrutiny, it is unaccountable. Until the incentives change, Facebook will not change. Left alone, Facebook will continue to make choices that go against the common good — our common good. […] At other large tech companies like Google, any independent researcher can download from the Internet the company’s search results and write papers about what they find — and they do!
