What could possibly go wrong?

The "Pals battalions" of World War I were specially constituted battalions of the British Army comprising men who had enlisted together in local recruiting drives, with the promise that they would be able to serve alongside their friends, neighbors and colleagues, rather than being arbitrarily allocated to battalions. It was a badly conceived idea which ultimately resulted in tragedies where men joined together, served together and died together and whole communities had their menfolk wiped out on a single day.

Spain just announced that they are going to vaccine all their essential personnel. Including police, military, medical professions, teachers, workers in pharmacies and all people facing the public. However the Covid-19 vaccine this is not a vaccine. It is an experimental gene therapy with unknown long term consequences. What could possibly go wrong?

Pals battalions anyone?

The world 's biggest lies...

The check is in the mail
I'll respect you in the morning
You get this one, I'll pay next time
I never inhaled
Two weeks to flatten the curve

The digital transformation

I started programming in the nineties with DBASE IV. Concept wise, little has changed. Current software is based on the same structures, objectives and logic as in those days, inheriting the same problems.

The digital transformation pretends to replace analog systems with digital ones that are supposedly better. They are not. Most systems are focused on achieving effectiveness and efficiency which is better for the owners while users lose their ability to influence and control the outcome of the processes they depend on.

The antidote is to find ways to re-introduce inclusive, human-centric analog ideas into the new systems.

Loose talk can cost lives

There are many posters from the second world war warning about how talk can cost lives. During war controlling the information flow is paramount. Propaganda and censorship are weapons of war. War may exist without formal declaration and even without the enemy knowing they are targeted.

How would we find out if there is a war and we are the enemy? Well…. do we see propaganda in the public mainstream mass media and censorship in the alternative media? Is it targeting us?

Just a thought

Never liked Facebook, far too open, far too controlled, far too gamified. While social media is here to stay, it needs to change. We cannot continue to let big tech and their billionaire owners deciding for the whole human population what they may say and share. Decentralized platforms like "friendica" are a step in the right direction.

Lets see if these emerging contenders can become serious alternatives to centralized big tech products.
