The maker of the world's fastest car blames an editing 'mixup' for a misleading video that internet detectives raced to debunk

SSC founder Jerod Shelby (left, and of no relation to Carroll Shelby) stands with driver Oliver Webb. James Lipman/SSC North America On October 10, SSC North America broke the fastest production car record with its 316-mph Tuatara.

Joe Rogan, Alex Jones and Spotify’s illusion of neutrality

Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter have taken a messy beating from critics unhappy with how they handle questionable content on their platform, with some complaining they don’t do enough to rein in misinformation, and others decrying censorship. But what about Spotify? The company is never mentioned in this context, and with its traditional business couched in streaming recorded music, you might understand why its biggest controversies over the last few years have been over how ...

Facebook, Twitter and YouTube's business models could get crushed if a law called Section 230 gets repealed. Trump and Congress are rushing to do exactly that.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Niall Carson/PA Images via Getty Images Section 230 — a federal law that shields social media companies from liabilities that would otherwise reshape or crush their businesses — is closer than ever to being repealed or rewritten.  The law protects social media companies from being held liable for the content of users' posts. Proponents argue it enables open forums on the internet to exist. But critics of the law say it doesn't adequately hold social media comp...

DoubleVerify, a specialist in brand safety, ad fraud and ad quality, raises $350M

Ad-based platforms can face a lot of heat from advertisers when they can’t control how and where their ads run: just look back to the ad boycott against Facebook earlier this year (or earlier boycotts against YouTube and others) as examples of when it all goes wrong. One of the ways this is getting addressed is with tech; and t oday, DoubleVerify, one of the companies that has been building tools to improve how those two interplay together, is announcing that it has closed a monster round of $...

“Bonded Labour”: sanitation workers in Chandigarh protest against being forced to wear GPS tracking devices

Sanitation workers in Chandigarh are being treated like “cattle”, they claim. With the help of GPS-enabled smartwatches adorned on the safai karamcharis’ wrists, faceless supervisors track their every move from a centralised command. When a worker strays from their assigned location, the system flags them; if they take a long break and are at the same place for too long, the system flags them. The Chandigarh Safai Karamchari Union calls this system “bonded labour“. Bezwada Wilson, national conve...

Soup, Jugaad and Chai

This topic was inspired by a recent keynote that I gave at a virtual conference in Chennai on the topic of  ‘Innovation for sustainable development’. The title was deliberately ambiguous leading people to wonder what is sustainable, innovation, or development of new technologies? The answer is both! The key here is the definition of Innovation as a set of behaviours and attitudes, not the shiny new (or green) products that are produced as a result. The aim of the keynote was to bring together s...

Social media platforms should take all measures to not host child porn: Delhi High Court
