You don’t know what you don’t know. I look at the difficulty brought on when people cannot accept a concept such as implicit bias, systemic racism, etc because it does not match their worldviews. Are they noumenon to a percentage of the population?

Watching it now. I had to laugh at the guy who said, “back in those days there weren’t any bad hackers, just curiosity”. _He_ didn’t know about that stuff when he was a kid but it was there and just as plentiful.

Still, outside of that guy’s rose-colored childhood, I’m enjoying this.

That’s around when it happened. Clearly I was pissed at that moment, which narrows down that it’s in the right timeframe (I don’t stay angry for long, so if I was angry, it was recent)

“hackers hack. That’s what they do.
I’m pro-hacker honestly. Leads to decent jobs in programming and security, once you’re out of jail. Not the asshole that made the CryptoWall thing though. He fucked up my mom’s computer and I can’t get whatever data I forgot to backup off it. Asshole”

Oh I stay angry at some things but I trained myself out of holding onto anger in elementary school, as I was “one of those kids” that would get wrapped up in an emotion. I didn’t like that so I did what I had to to work on it. I get “angry at my anger” so it cancels out.

Ok, NOW it’s getting into the internet Armageddon stuff along with the internet-made-us-dumb-so-we-need-to-be-survivalists.

oh great, NOW it’s into my territory — loss of data due to obsolescence. haha

Enjoyed this.
Ok. First thoughts on the totality of this presentation:
It’s middle-class fears that you can put on the bookshelf next to:
“Do you know who is watching YOUR children online?”

Second thoughts:
You can make the same presentation about the electrical grid.
You can make the same presentation about the water supply pathways.
You can make the same presentation about the naval shipping routes.
You can make the same presentation about the world of international trade.
You can make the same presentation about the global economy.
 
In short, you can make the same presentation about any sufficiently complicated system that is not under any one individual’s control or authority and certainly not under your control, you middle-class consumer of this massive complicated thing.
 
I think those are important points to hold in mind while analyzing this.

  “What are your thoughts on Neuromarketing/Neuroeconomics?”

Creepy of course.

Will we adapt and work around it while unconsciously also giving up things we don’t realize we’re giving up? Yeah. But we did that many generations ago and its become part of the fabric of things just as this will.
