Articles you might find interesting - or not.

I thought I'd set up a thread where anyone can post a link to an article or clip which they find interesting and think others might too.

Here's one to start:

" Secrets are lies. Sharing is Caring. Privacy is theft"

Post by Julia Padiou on Sat Oct 06, 2018 5:50 pm

This article is so scary according to me.... It reminds me not only of the Black Mirror episode but also of a book I've read called "The Circle" by Dave Eggers which has been adapted to the screen last year. Emma Watson plays in it (best actress in the world) so you can watch it but the book is far better!!!
Am I the only one to find scary the fact to be labelled this way? To me it's just one more way to point out the inequalities in a country...
If everyone is watched all the time, where is the privacy ?? and they call it "the gamification of trust"? I find it oppressive and stifling. We're humans with a unique heart and name, not machines that have to get points and labels. We have feelings, we love, we hate. With this system, it's just gonna be a global COMPETITION

At this point I'm maybe exaggerating because this system certainly has some advantages... But what next? ----> Black Mirror or the Circle : hypocrisy, competition and more !

I also saw the article about the whale this afternoon... it's a shame ...
I know it's not the only reason but I don't understand people who throw things in the sea or on the floor... when there is a bin 5 meters from you it's not THAT difficult to go and throw your rubbish in it...
Poor animals...
I also saw yesterday numerous pictures about animals that have plastic bags around them or in their organism.. it's horrible
A lot of turtles for example die because they confuse plastic bags with jellyfish...
