Government should stay out of social media

We are at a turning point in the history of the Internet. Until now Internet companies have been largely free of government regulation. Now tech CEOs like Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook are saying “we need a more active role for governments and regulators.” Specifically he thinks government should regulate the harmful content of online speech. Governments are happy to oblige. The United Kingdom has just proposed ambitious plans “for a new system of accountability and oversight for tech companies, m...

Knock knock. Wait, you don’t have to guess who’s there, because wireless camera-enabled security devices have made it so that you always know.

Interactive gaming company to lease another 60,000 square feet in Culver City

Scopely, an interactive entertainment company and mobile-games publisher, has agreed to lease 60,000 square feet of space in Culver City, a move that will more than double its Los Angeles footprint by 2020.

Southern California’s French Catholics lead fundraising efforts to rebuild burned Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

Bernard Prat was born in 1946, a little over a year after the bells of the Notre Dame Cathedral tolled for the last time — marking the Liberation of Paris during World War II. Prat’s parents were witnesses to that historic event. “The bells were so loud and powerful that they shattered some of the cathedral’s windows,” he said. “When I saw the roof collapse, I was so sad. It took 1,300 trees — an entire forest — to build that wooden roof.” Prat, 73, of Newport Beach, was among millions around th...

5G is going to let even more devices go wireless, but cities are grappling with the roll out

You may not think much about the small elongated cylinders or boxes perched on rooftops or street lights. But those small wireless facilities, dubbed “small cells,” are the building blocks for 5G, an ultra-fast wireless technology that will quicken the things you do on your cellphone and unleash a new generation of devices. A mini cell tower sits atop a pole in the 20600 block of Laguna Canyon Road on April 18, 2019, in Laguna Beach, CA.. (Photo by Jeff Gritchen, Orange County Register/SCNG)...

IPO mania: Zoom zooms, Pinterest pins down Wall Street

By Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press There’s some tech jubilance in the air on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley as a pair of newly public companies — Zoom and Pinterest — saw their stocks soar on their first trading day. No one wants talk about a bubble, not to mention its prospects for bursting, but the strong initial performances might reassure investors with jittery nerves following ride-hailing company Lyft’s disappointing start less than a month ago. Zoom Video Communications, which ma...

Coachella 2019: From augmented reality to food delivery, tech plays increasing role in the festivities

When you’re at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, you know it — art works loom over crowds of people dressed in tie dyes, flower prints and bold patterns; the pulsating beats of electronic music greet you at several of the tents; and there are plenty of people with their phones out ready to take the perfect selfie with their bestie. Those tell-tale signs are indicative that you’ve arrived at the festival, and in Coachella’s 20th year, it’s at it’s Coachella-iest. But there’s also some...

Coachella 2019: Space out, literally, at the festival’s Sahara Tent with an augmented reality-equipped stage

The idea of space exploration seems to be playing a big role at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and not only because of “Overview Effect,” the roving astronaut from Poetic Kinetics, or the space-bound hippos in Dedo Vabo’s “H.I.P.O – Hazardus Interstellar Perfessional Operations”. Festival goers may also find themselves captivated by space-themed augmented reality at the Sahara Tent both weekends of the festival, which returns April 19-21 for an encore at the Empire Polo Club in Ind...

A borderless world is not so hard to imagine

“Imagine there are no countries”, sang John Lennon in his 1971 anthem to nihilism, “Imagine.” Crazy, right? Lennon himself acknowledged the utopian nature of a borderless world, writing and singing, “You may say that I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one.” Forty-eight years later, Lennon’s vision of a world without countries is starting to look a lot less crazy. Of all the myriad changes ushered in by the digital revolution, the most profound may be the one just starting to reveal itself: the e...

Senior Living: ‘The United States of Stress’ and what to do about it

By David W. Hart, Ph.D.  Contributing writer On a recent Sunday, I was scrolling through the plethora of television and movie options available to me on Apple TV and came across a documentary on HBO titled “The United States of Stress.” The program is moderated by Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN fame and explores the empirical science that makes one finding abundantly clear: Americans are dying as a result of chronic stress.

Mark Zuckerberg invites crony capitalism with call for regulation

Please, regulate me! That was Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s message to Congress recently. “Lawmakers often tell me we have too much power over speech, and frankly I agree,” he wrote in an op-ed. “(W)e shouldn’t make so many important decisions … on our own.” It sounds so self-sacrificing. But give me a break. Big companies use regulation to their advantage. His smaller competitors can’t afford the squads of “compliance officers” that Facebook employs. “You, as a company, welcome regulation?...

Amid FBI probe of LA City Hall, Council committee looks at developer donation ban

By Craig Clough LOS ANGELES — Amid a federal corruption and bribery investigation that appears related to real estate developments, a Los Angeles City Council committee on Wednesday moved forward with a proposal to ban developers from contributing to local elections if they have pending projects in need of city approval. The proposed changes would also include a ban on political donations from non-individuals and on “behested” payments made to a charity or government program at the request of an...

SB37 won’t solve ‘income inequality,’ but it will hurt California’s economy

When Senate Bill 37 was introduced in the state Legislature in December, it was described in the Legislative Counsel’s Digest as relating to “Crimes: explosives.” That was prescient, because it has now been amended into a huge tax increase on businesses that could explode the state’s unemployment rate. SB37 by Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, says “income inequality in California rose even more sharply than in the rest of the United States during the last half of the 20th century,” and gives that...

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — For those who thought Texas Tech only plays defense, it’s time to meet Matt Mooney.

The opium of California

The current frenzy of new IPOs — Uber, Lyft, Slack, Postmates, Pinterest and Airbnb — seems destined to reinforce progressive notions that California represents the future not just for the state, but the nation. It will certainly reinforce California’s fiscal dependency on tech-dominated elites — half of the state’s income taxes come from people making over $500,000 a year — and provide a huge potential multi-billion dollar windfall for the state treasury. To be sure, the insiders — founders, wi...

Facebook, YouTube, and Snapchat execs could be named, shamed, and held personally liable for harmful content under new UK laws

Executives at Facebook, Google, and Snapchat might be held personally responsible if their firms don't delete harmful content off their services, according to UK government plans seen by The Guardian. A government policy paper, to be published Monday, is expected to introduce a much stricter regulatory regime for tech firms. The UK will establish a new regulator that will have the power to fine tech firms billions if they don't obey a new mandatory code of conduct. Australia is also mulling bi...

Whicker: Taft’s Kihei Clark puts Virginia in the passing lane

They come to the Final Four from all over. Caribbean Islands, African deserts, even California freeways. On Saturday, Kihei Clark proved again it’s not how many or how big. Clark was at Taft High last year, playing for Derrick Taylor. He came to Virginia, ACC royalty, when the Pac-12 teams shook their heads like a policeman at the roller-coaster, enforcing the height rule. He is 5-foot-9, but in the final regulation seconds of the regional final in Louisville, Clark showed a wingspan long enough...

540 million of Facebook records found on Amazon cloud servers

Researchers at UpGuard, a cybersecurity firm, found troves of user information hiding in plain sight, inadvertently posted publicly on’s cloud computing servers. The discovery shows that a year after the Cambridge Analytica scandal exposed how unsecure and widely disseminated Facebook users’ information is online, companies that control that information at every step still haven’t done enough to seal up private data.
