What is widely viewed as the first #Thanksgiving was a three-day feast to which the #Pilgrims had invited the local #Wampanoag people as a #celebration of the #harvest.About 90 came, almost twice the number of Pilgrims. This is the first myth: that the first Thanksgiving was dominated by the Pilgrim and not the #Native American. The Native Americans even provided the bulk of the food, according to the #Manataka American Indian Council....
The celebration in 1621 did not mark a friendly turning point and did not become an annual event. Relations between the Wampanoag and the settlers deteriorated, leading to the Pequot #War. In 1637, in retaliation for the murder of a man the settlers believed the Wampanoags killed, they burned a nearby village, killing as many as 500 men, women, and children. Following the #massacre, William Bradford, the Governor of Plymouth, wrote that for “the next 100 years, every Thanksgiving Day ordained by a Governor was in honor of the bloody #victory, thanking #God that the battle had been won.”So #gratitude is just an excuse to cover up the #genocide.

Facebook’s only Dutch factchecker has quit over the #social network’s refusal to allow them to highlight political lies as being false.You know that the world is lost if only the Netherlands notice that Facebook prefers to earn #money with #fake #news.
Surveillance Giants lays out how the surveillance-based #business model of Facebook and Google is inherently incompatible with the right to #privacy and poses a systemic threat to a range of other rights including #freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of thought, and the #right to #equality and non-discrimination.I agree with what they said. The #problem is that their entire #web presence is based on Facebook and Google. On the one hand they warn, on the other hand they have to reach many people.
The documents concerned a mandatory tool that was recently installed on the Google #Chrome browser on workers’ computers, the #employees said. In October, some Google employees raised concerns that the Chrome extension was an internal #surveillance tool designed to monitor their attempts to organize protests. It would automatically report staffers who create a calendar event with more than 10 rooms or 100 participants, according to an #employee memo that outlined concerns about the tool. A Google representative said the extension was merely an attempt to reduce calendar spam.#economy #fail #news #protest
#Facebook faces the task of using its #algorithms to fight #fake #news – but does it know the real #problem it’s fighting against?...
Mark #Zuckerberg’s recent testimony in US #Congress – where politicians competed to deal him the lethal rhetorical blow – doesn’t bode well for #SiliconValley. The Valley’s only savior, at this point, is the #Communist Party of #China. Only indefinite #trade #war with China will prevent US lawmakers from regulating the “strategic” tech sector; to break up the #industry would weaken #Washington’s global standing. The Trump administration is not blind to these risks.#usa #politics #trump #economy #internet #justice #law #fail #future #regulation #risk
Dear GitLab users and customers,
On October 23, we sent an email entitled “Important Updates to our Terms of Service and Telemetry Services”
announcing upcoming changes. Based on considerable feedback from our customers, users, and the broader community,
we reversed course the next day and removed those changes before they went into effect. Further, GitLab will
commit to not implementing telemetry in our products that sends usage data to a third-party product analytics
service. This clearly struck a nerve with our community and I apologize for this mistake.
So, what happened? In an effort to improve our user experience, we decided to implement user behavior tracking
with both first and third-party technology. Clearly, our evaluation and communication processes for rolling
out a change like this were lacking and we need to improve those processes. But that’s not the main thing we did wrong.
Our main mistake was that we did not live up to our own core value of collaboration by including our users,
contributors, and customers in the strategy discussion and, for that, I am truly sorry. It shouldn’t have
surprised us that you have strong feelings about opt-in/opt-out decisions, first versus third-party tracking,
data protection, security, deployment flexibility and many other topics, and we should have listened first.
So, where do we go from here? The first step is a retrospective that is happening on October 29 to document
what went wrong. We are reaching out to customers who expressed concerns and collecting feedback from users
and the wider community. We will put together a new proposal for improving the user experience and share it
for feedback. We made a mistake by not collaborating, so now we will take as much time as needed to make
sure we get this right. You can be part of the collaboration by posting comments in this
issue: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-com/www-gitlab-com/issues/5672. If you are a customer, you may also reach
out to your GitLab representative if you have additional feedback.
I am glad you hold GitLab to a higher standard. If we are going to be transparent and collaborative,
we need to do it consistently and learn from our mistakes.
