How #Uber Got #Lost


Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/business/how-uber-got-lost.html
In combing through documents, interviewing opponents and talking to more than 200 current and former employees while researching my book, what came up again and again was this sense of a public-private divide — that Mr. Kalanick had built a start-up that thrived on venture #investment, #blitzkrieg #expansion tactics and an ethically questionable aggressive streak, but that the playbook made little sense for a publicly traded entity.
...
Instead of moving the hubs, the local Uber managers decided to pay off the #cops, with bribes of around 500,000 rupiah (about $30).
...
The fixes didn’t come soon enough. Mr. #Kalanick’s product team eventually improved identity verification and #security in the app for Brazilian customers, after intense pressure from product and marketing leaders. But not before at least 16 drivers in #Brazil were murdered.

Citylab Berlin - Müller eröffnet Zentrum für Berlins digitale Erneuerung


Das ist doch ein guter Ansatz für die @FSFE Berlin hier solche Dinge wie FixMyStreet oder "Public money, Public Code" anzubringen. Wenn die Stadt schon danach fragt. ;)

Ziel des Projektes ist es, Verwaltung, Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Bürger zusammen zu bringen, um digitale Lösungen für die Herausforderungen der wachsenden Stadt zu entwickeln.

#Kantar's company has instead developed #digital #assessments that resemble #videogames. They put users in #simulated #environments and present them with a series of tasks, while capturing the #decision #making #process that users employ to complete them. And because each simulation is unique, the tests are " #cheatproof ".
Her tests are also being used in hiring potential employees. They have worked with companies like #McKinsey to create game based tests that measure " #prospective #employees’ #decision-making, #adaptability, and #critical #thinking." #McKinsey says they will double the number of candidates taking the #Imbellus #assessment by the end of 2019.
close.....but only if you think the point of college is to get a job. It currently IS the point of #college, but that's not what college has HISTORICALLY been for.

Dumm gelaufen:


Vor einigen Wochen wurde mein #Fernsehempfang von #analog auf #digital umgestellt. Nach dem Sendersuchlauf bleiben einige Programme nicht mehr auf ihren ursprünglichen Programmplätzen, sondern verschieben sich immer wieder, so dass ich manche Programme immer wieder suchen muss. Das ist #nervig.

Wie bereits von anderen vermutet, hat mir der #Support von #Grundig (ich habe einen Grundig-Fernseher) bestätigt, dass es sich um ein #Problem mit der #Software handelt. Da mein Fernseher nicht #internetfähig ist, müsste ich einen #Fachhändler mit der Einspielung eines #Updates beauftragen. Das kann mich mir als Empfänger von #Grundsicherung nicht leisten.

Jetzt muss ich weiter nach den aktuellen Programmplätzen der betroffenen Programme suchen und hoffe, dass ein solcher Wechsel nicht während einer laufenden Sendung passiert - das wäre dann ganz, ganz übel.

… it is not cool that

  • postal code
  • birth date
  • phone number
… are enough info for social engineering hackers to set a new password to your account or initiate a SIM phone number swap and steal millions and millions in cryptocurrency!

Australia makes safe online communication harder for its people


In July 2017, former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced his plan to develop legislation that allows access to encrypted communications for law enforcement.

"If you set yourselves up as the place least welcoming to cybersecurity practitioners in the world, it's definitely going to make it harder to build great cybersecurity businesses -- sorry," van Someren said of the rushed legislation.

"Here's the challenge: Building businesses isn't the same as building science projects," van Someren added.

Russians protested for free internet

1. The Moscow Times:


Last May, when communications watchdog Roskomnadzor moved to block the popular messaging app Telegram, some 12,000 Russians turned out to a protest Svetov organized — which, he is eager to point out, was last year’s largest street demonstration.

With the state quashing independent media in recent years, YouTube has become an increasingly popular tool among opposition activists seeking out audiences. The platform is now viewed by 82 percent of the Russian population aged 18-44, as The Economist reported last week. In spring 2017, opposition leader Alexei Navalny took authorities by surprise by using his YouTube channel to inspire thousands into the streets for the first mass protests against the Kremlin since 2012.
