Add Craigslist to the tech platforms Russians used to manipulate the 2016 election

In one of the weirder revelations to come out of the Mueller report released this morning, it seems that Craigslist was yet another tech platform used in Russia’s election influence campaign. Facebook? Sure. Instagram? Yup, that too. YouTube? Twitter? Oh my, yes. Even Tumblr makes an appearance (LOL. Tumblr). But Craigslist? Apparently the Russians used the platform (alongside Facebook and the rest) to facilitate their real-life trolling campaigns. The Russian influence operations included thin...

YC alum Keeper raises $1.6M to help gig workers pay taxes

Every year around this time, Uber drivers, Wag dog walkers, Bird scooter chargers, social media influencers and other gig economy workers face the unsightly challenge of paying their taxes. Companies like Uber and Lyft classify their drivers as independent contractors, which means you aren’t given any benefits and the company doesn’t withhold any of your taxes. This puts gig workers in a tough position come tax day, especially if they aren’t prepared to shell out big sums to the IRS. Ke...

Section 230 Applies to ADA Closed Captioning Claims–National Federation of the Deaf v. Harvard

Harvard publishes a lot of video online, both on servers it operates and through third-party services like YouTube. Only some of that video has “timely, accurate closed captioning.” The National Federation of the Deaf sued Harvard for ADA violations and related claims. As an educational institution, Harvard admits that it is a place of public accommodation, but it says that the plaintiffs must still show “a sufficient nexus to goods or services offered to the public in a physical location.” The ...

The Chinafication of the internet continues as the UK proposes blocking any service that hosts "illegal" or "harmful" material

Last year the US Congress passed SESTA/FOSTA, an "anti-sex-trafficking bill" that has resulted in the shuttering of all the services formerly used by sex workers to vet their johns, massively increasing the personal physical risk borne by sex-workers and reinvigorating the dying pimping industry, as sex workers seek out protectors. Not incidentally, SESTA/FOSTA has led to an overall hair-trigger on the part of platform operators, who -- facing massive liability for allowing a single prosti...

Selling vintage MS63/MS64 for spot price?

I've long held vintage graded gold for prepping and the "perfect storm". That perfect storm has arrived in the form of a hurricane. I must sell a fair amount. Denver has two large bullion sellers/buyers. They are next door to one another. For years they have been paying spot price for highly graded vintage coins. They say that after the 2008 financial crisis the rarity and quality of old gold no longer matters much. Indeed - that old gold is not as desirable because it is an alloy (for durabili...

News organizations have all but abandoned their archives

Sharon Ringel and Angela Woodall have published a comprehensive, in-depth look at the state of news archiving in the digital age, working under the auspices of the Tow Center at the Columbia Journalism Review; it's an excellent, well-researched report and paints an alarming picture of the erosion of the institutional memories of news organizations. Ringel and Woodall find that news organizations are cavalier, even negligent, about archiving their news, and contrast this with the heyday of n...

User Interviews, a platform for product feedback, raises $5 million

It’s not uncommon to hear CEOs and business leaders talk about focusing on the consumer. But the only way to build for the consumer is to hear what they want, which can be a resource-intensive thing to retrieve. User Interviews, an ERA-backed company out of New York, is looking to lighten that load with a fresh $5 million in seed funding from Accomplice, Las Olas, FJ Labs, and ERA. User Interviews actually started out as Mobile Suites, an amenities logistics platform for hotels. It was a dud, an...

Life in Paris: One Month Down

Posted: 3/21/2019 | March 21st, 2019 It’s been exactly one month since I moved to Paris. During that time, it’s been nonstop wine, cheese, brasseries, influencer meetups, fashionable social events, writer salons, museums, picnics, and late-night jazz concerts. It’s been a whirlwind of adventure and romance. Just I imagined it would be. Actually… It hasn’t been that way at all. I just made that up.

QUICK SILVER. Stephen Brisken’s Ducati 900 SS Cafe

Written by Andrew Jones How many 21-year-olds do you know with a killer workshop and an amazing bike collection? The answer is probably zero. That’s because – unlike other things in life – getting older seems to be a distinct benefit in the bike scene. With no more kids, years of riding experience under your belt and the mortgage paid off, many of us find ourselves in a position where those dream bikes we’ve always wanted are finally within reach. Not only that, but you also have the time to ...

A degree of corruption

In that classic 1978 college documentary, “Animal House,” Dean Vernon Wormer of Faber College offers soon-to-be-ex-student Kent Dorfman a little helpful advice: “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.” A lot has changed over the past 40 years. Today Dean Wormer might well say, “Rich, spoiled and privileged is no way to go through life.” Granted, being rich and privileged — which is redundant — has traditionally been an excellent way to go through life. While wealth and power do...

Cows are cheap

I missed a local livestock auction this weekend. As I have shared before I have a sweet deal: A friend of mine has the property, the hay field, tractor, fencing, and bull. I front the money (he's a farmer, they are either rich or broke) and we buy a cow(s), and he pays me back his half when he can. (He's good at ASAP, so I'm happy to be a revolving line of credit for this and other deals.) I do almost nothing other than that, or pay half of any vet bills. (None yet) and each cow and calf is...
