Algorithms

A New York Times article is questioning the media’s responsibility. They should do more do keep hate-inciting misinformative posts. But I also blame algorithms, which determine what you see based on what you’ve seen. So if you look at a post, tweet, whatever with misinformation, you will get more and more of the same. So what you see in the online world may be completely different from what I see. This inhibits information, and gives a blinder-ed view of anything. This needs to be fixed, but I have no idea how.

I still am just unable to put into words the horror of what has happened here in my country. Appalled does not begin to describe it. I am very, very concerned that there will be no real consequences to those involved, whether actively or passively. This has long been a problem. People in power are doing things that are blatantly illegal, and no one who can, does anything at all about it. They all just sit back and let the shit happen. Disgraceful is the word that comes to mind. A disgrace to the people who voted for them, a disgrace to their duty as elected officials, disgrace to the country they are meant to represent. I personally am just disgusted with the whole lot of them.
