Facebook data is sold and then actively being used to influence elections. That's where it stops being harmless. And it's not an orwellian vision but it is reality today.

Well, this is what you can avoid using a fictional persona. Which is really no efford, in this case.

Having said this, the world is fullblown 1984 today, including Newspeak, everyday, everywhere. Only the physical violence is not on par with Orwell's vision. All this brought about us by people who consider themselves liberal.

Yeah... I didn't really mean my comment as a joke - sadly enough...
1984 is currently more relevant than ever before :(

It's like politicians read the book and said... WOW! That's a lot of good ideas!

Checks forum rules for forbidden topics...
Politics is not one of them...
phew!

Add me to the "No Facebook" list. Hence, why the Inn has no facebook page... unless some else made one.

I dont use my personal facebook account although im forced to have it to run a business account. For a business, facebook is quite valuable, which is on the other side of the fence.
In the US they have trialled doing some customs checks on travellers, by scanning through peoples facebook accounts. Seems like a computer can get a good idea of if someone is a terrorist or nutcase by what they post on facebook. (https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... ok-twitter)
Then there are companies checking potential employees facebooks after an interview to see how reliable and professional they act. Too many drunken photos? no job for you kiddo!
Or facebook / facebook subsidiaries "owning" all images uploaded to them and selling them, a lot of conflicting info on this one (https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... ded-photos)

Your relationship network gives you away. You have radical friends, maybe you're a radical, too.

In the contest " hacking for diplomacy" they analyzed social network data to see if they can find would-be radicals in the radicalization phase, and then find a close by contact person who has still access to the would-be radical, and then they contacted those nearby persons to offer psychological aid for getting the would-be out of the radicalization loop.

That again, was very sympathetic. Hacking for diplomacy is a contest by the US government.

However, I can imagine that the other side uses the same mechanisms to radicalize persons for whatever cause is the topic of the day. One problem is that those kinds of projects, correctly executed, take many millions in the making. So this is a technique that can be used by the rich to influence the poor.

Does anyone know what / how Ken is doing?
You know, the guy who played HQ with his grandchildren, lover of good food and wine.

Seems he has been absent since 2013. Does anybody know how to contact him?

I sent him a PM almost three years back asking about how he was doing but got no reply. It seems he dropped out after his grandson, his HQ playing partner, got interested in girls and lost interest in HQ. In other words--life got in the way.

Sjeng now makes YouTube game reviews, unboxings, and how-to-play videos at Boardgame Heaven, which I imagine takes a good deal of his time.

I'm a curious man, always interested in almost anything where I can learn soething new.

I have friends (in real life, not at facebook),
who want to reinstall the Habsburgean monarchy,
others who are staunch communist, despising the young "leftists", going to training camps in Syria to prepare for the world revolution they await every day,
others who long for the "good days" of the German Federal Republic,
muslim friends,
islamophobic friends,
gay friends,
homophobic friends,
friends with mafia contacs,
friends in high military rank.

I don't think I've become a radical person yet.

If anyone ever has shifted my plitical orientation, it was the lukewarm semileftist teachers of the 68 generation I had to endure in school. Of course, not the way they tried... :lol:

Seems it was wise to go to Facebook incognito. :|

That's very sad. Liked him very much.
