Three Years of Misery Inside Google, the Happiest Company in Tech

Three Years of Misery Inside Google, the Happiest Company in Tech

Monday in January 2017, at 2:30 in the afternoon, about a thousand employees—horrified, alarmed, and a little giddy—began pouring out of the company's offices in Mountain View, California. They packed themselves into a cheerful courtyard outside the main campus café, a parklike area dotted with picnic tables and a shade structure that resembles a giant game of pickup sticks. Many of them held up handmade signs: “Proud Iranian-American Googler,” “Even Introverts Are Here,” and of course, “Don't Be Evil!” written in the same kindergarten colors as the Google logo.rounds of call-and-response...

A Startup Will Nix Algorithms Built on Ill-Gotten Facial Data

A Startup Will Nix Algorithms Built on Ill-Gotten Facial Data

San Francisco face-recognition startup Everalbum won a $2 million contract with the Air Force to provide “AI-driven access control.” Monday, another arm of the US government dealt the company a setback. The Federal Trade Commission Everalbum had agreed to settle charges that it had applied face-recognition technology to images uploaded to a photo app without users’ permission and retained them after telling users they would be deleted. The startup used millions of the photos to develop technology offered to government agencies and other customers under the brand .Paravision, as the company...

UC Berkeley Was About to Launch a Satellite. Then PG&E Said It Was Cutting Power

UC Berkeley Was About to Launch a Satellite. Then PG&E Said It Was Cutting Power

Last Monday, just as the workday was winding down, Paula Milano received a phone call that threw her week into chaos. Milano, who helps run the Space Sciences Laboratory at UC Berkeley, had been gearing up for a satellite launch. But on the phone now was a friend of hers, with bad news: PG&E, the power company, was warning the school that its electricity could be cut Wednesday—making the campus one of more than 700,000 customers that would suffer the same fate. The outage was a precautionary measure to keep forecasted high winds from jostling electrical equipment and starting the next...

Great News, America: Cheese Isn’t Bad for You

Great News, America: Cheese Isn’t Bad for You

Cheese is among the ultimate guilty pleasures. It’s gooey. It’s fatty. It’s delicious. It just has to be bad for you, right? Wrong. A large body of research suggests that cheese’s reputation as a fattening, heart-imperiling food is undeserved. When it comes to weight and other key health outcomes (and setting aside the issue of lactose intolerance, with apologies), cheese is neutral at worst, and possibly even good for you. And yet that research doesn’t seem to have broken through into common knowledge. If you Google “cheese,” the top result under “people also ask” is the ungrammatical...

A New Crispr Technique Could Fix Almost All Genetic Diseases

A New Crispr Technique Could Fix Almost All Genetic Diseases

Andrew Anzalone was restless. It was late fall of 2017. The year was winding down, and so was his MD/PhD program at Columbia. Trying to figure out what was next in his life, he’d taken to long walks in the leaf-strewn West Village. One night as he paced up Hudson Street, his stomach filled with La Colombe coffee and his mind with Crispr gene editing papers, an idea began to bubble through the caffeine brume inside his brain. Crispr, for all its DNA-snipping precision, has always been best at breaking things. But if you want to replace a faulty gene with a healthy one, things get more...

Biology's Roiling Debate Over Publishing Research Early

Biology's Roiling Debate Over Publishing Research Early

Daniel MacArthur set out to build a massive library of human — the biggest ever. The 60,706 raw sequences, collected from colleagues all over the globe, took up a petabyte of memory. It was the kind of flashy, blockbuster project that would secure MacArthur a coveted spot in one of science’s top three journals, launching his new lab at the Broad Institute into the scientific spotlight. But before all that happened, he did something that counted as an act of radicalism in the world of biology: He put it on the internet.Posting scientific papers online before peer review—in so-called preprint...

15 Months of Fresh Hell Inside Facebook

15 Months of Fresh Hell Inside Facebook

Davos, Switzerland, were iced over on the night of January 25, 2018, which added a slight element of danger to the prospect of trekking to the Hotel Seehof for George Soros’ annual banquet. The aged financier has a tradition of hosting a dinner at the World Economic Forum, where he regales tycoons, ministers, and journalists with his thoughts about the state of the world. That night he began by warning in his quiet, shaking Hungarian accent about nuclear war and climate change. Then he shifted to his next idea of a global menace: and . “Mining and oil companies exploit the physical...

Facebook’s Libra Reveals Silicon Valley’s Naked Ambition

Facebook’s Libra Reveals Silicon Valley’s Naked Ambition

As David Mamet once wrote, “Everybody needs money. That’s why they call it money!” And when you have more money than anyone could ever need, you call it Libra. Facebook on Tuesday introduced a comprehensive, borderless economic system for its platform, which is based on a new cryptocurrency, Libra. The company plans to sit ostentatiously on its hands when it comes to governing the project, just one member of the so-called Libra Association, with a total of 28, to emphasize the separation between the currency—which will have a record of your every purchase—and the company, which has an...

Corporations Are Co-Opting Right-to-Repair

you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."As an advocate, organizer, and campaigner for preschool access, tax fairness, plastic pollution and other causes for the last 14 years, I’ve heard this saying many times. You tell it to your volunteers when it looks like your movement has hit a wall or when it looks like your opposition has the upper hand, and you want to show your teammates that many people have faced obstacles before, and overcome them.ABOUTNathan Proctor () is director of the Right to Repair Campaign for U.S. PIRG, an advocacy organization.The saying is...
