Twitter Views Private "Sex" DMs. haha
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on January 15th, 2018 @ 11:50PM

Glad I never use it.

HIDDEN CAMERA: HUNDREDS of Twitter Employees Paid to View “Everything You Post Online” Including Private “Sex Messages”

Putting the TLDR; at the top, just in case you don't want to read my rant...

Bottom line is I am surprised that people are shocked by this. It is kind of expected.

The problem with any communication tool that you don't own/operate is the chance that others will watch. You should expect it in fact. Facebook, Twitter, any Instant Messaging (our conversations are logged at work), etc.

They claim file/document sharing tools like Dropbox are secure, but even though the transfer is secure, most the time they don't store them on their servers encrypted, meaning people at Dropbox can go through your documents. That is why I run a Seafile server at home on encrypted drives that have to be decrypted at boot. Does Dropbox have people combing through the millions of pictures and documents that are sent to them daily, I highly doubt it, but the potential is there. There are some services that do encrypt your backups when they store them, and hopefully they get audited, but do you know for sure?

Also, you should never type anything via a messaging tool that you aren't okay with others seeing. You are creating a document that can be shared. I ran Openfire (XMPP IM server) on my Linux box here at home for the longest time so me and my friends could chat

Although being recorded without your knowledge is not accepted in a court here in California, you should always talk with people like you are being recorded, unless you have 100% trust in the other person. The only real people I can trust is my direct family and most people can't even trust theirs.

So, am I paranoid of what I say except to my wife, kids, and parents? YES. I have to admit though, if some of the crap I have said out loud to any of my family members ever got out, that alone would keep me from holding a public office, and I imagine it is the same for 99% of the people out there.

Era of Fear
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on December 24th, 2017 @ 2:20PM

That's what 2017 is. Now you gotta be afraid to say who you voted for, or say MERRY CHRISTMAS instead of Happy Holidays. Thursday I was afraid to tell a girl I liked her dress at work. haha.

And who brought us here? Liberals. Thanks.

United Has a Lot to Answer For

Continue reading "United Has a Lot to Answer For" ...

Dick move by the CEO. It is general knowledge that you don't publicly admit fault, as then your lawyers have no leverage in court.... but to outright blame the passenger wont win them any public favor and will continue to hurt the stock price and ticket sales.

He should have probably just said something along the lines of "we are reviewing our overbooking procedures". Would it have hurt them so much to keep upping the amount of money offered? I bet if they offered $1000 in cash (not voucher) plus a reschedule and 2 free global tickets (good up to 1 year) would have gotten 3-4 takers.

RE: Another perspective...

So after reading that I'm left with two thoughts.

1) Even if what the author has stated is 100% factually correct, they lose a lot of credibility when they resort to saying things like "There’s a reason for these laws–it’s called 9/11". I'm sorry what? The only thing that drives me more nuts than when people try to justify something by saying "But think of the children!" is when they try to justify something with "But, but...terrorists!".

2) Even if you discount #1, the entire situation is a customer relations nightmare. I mean how hard would it have been to make the following announcement to all the passengers:

"Ladies and gentlemen, we apologize for the following inconvenience however we are looking tor x passengers to voluntarily disembark to accommodate a number of airline employees to ensure no other flights are unnecessarily delayed or cancelled. We understand this is an inconvenience and as such are willing to arrange and compensate you a complimentary flight free of charge to your intended destination along with $500 cash/check. Please come to the front of the plane if your are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity."

You wait 5 minutes and then bump the payout to $1000. I guarantee you you will have a line of people willing to jump at that offer. And how do I know? Two words - Black Friday. If people are willing to fight tooth and nail over a sale on a $10 crappy waffle makers, you bet your ass they'll accept a free flight and money.

So instead of playing it smart and shelling out $1000 per person to disembark, this will likely end with the airline having to offer a 5 or 6-figure settlement payment in order to avoid a lawsuit.

EDIT: hehe, just realized I'm echoing Wootah's comment :)
