Facebook Inc (FB.O) will hire 3,000 more people over the next year to respond to reports of inappropriate material on the social media network and speed up the removal of videos showing murder, suicide and other violent acts, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday.The hiring spree is an acknowledgement by Facebook that, at least for now, it needs more than automated software to improve monitoring of posts. Facebook Live, a service that allows any user to broadcast live, has been marred since its launch last year by instances of people streaming violence.Zuckerberg, the company’s co-founder, said in a Facebook post the workers will be in addition to the 4,500 people who already review posts that may violate its terms of service.

Hate for Sale

Hate for Sale

Hate for Sale

 

En film om hat, som är till salu och som säljs

A stop-motion animated film about the world we live in.
Created for the Visible Poetry Project 2017 visiblepoetryproject.com/
An original poem by Neil Gaiman, narrated by Peter Kenny, directed and animated by Anna Eijsbouts.

Hate for Sale
Hate for sale. All the very best
Hate for sale. Vintage stuff.
Do my cries excite your interest?
Lovely hate. Your life is rough.
Buy my hate. You’ll come right back for more.
Hate for sale. Enough to start a war.
Hate the rich, the brown, the black, the poor.
Hate is clean. And hate will make you sure.
Hate for sale. You’ll feel superior.
Hate for sale. You’ll make the news.
Hate the families who come here fleeing war.
Hate the gay. The trans. The new. The Jews.

Don’t need to care who you detest
Hate makes you feel a whit less scared
To know that your group is the best
And burn to ashes all the rest
Who will not face the real test
But showed up naked, unprepared
To be sent back, or drowned, or hurled
back into the abyss. Your world
will be so safe, so clean, so great.
And all you needed was some hate.
Hate for sale. All the very best
Hate for sale. Vintage stuff.
Do my cries excite your interest?
Hate for sale. Never enough.

‘We sold our home to build a social network’ – BBC News

The Hughes family in Manchester have quit their jobs and put everything they own into building a social network aimed solely at sports fans. But can they take on the giants?”We see ourselves sitting at the top table with the big boys,” says father Perry Hughes confidently.”We don’t think we’re taking on the competition.”It might sound optimistic to put your family business in the same league as the multi-billion dollar social networks but the Hughes family certainly have the passion to give it a go.Their big idea is GameDay Xtra, which has the bold ambition of hosting a page for every single sports team and player in the world – with even the humblest of leagues able to share their own news.

Why the Hell Doesn't the Surface Laptop Have a USB-C Charger?

Why the Hell Doesn’t the Surface Laptop Have a USB-C Charger?

As we pointed out yesterday, Microsoft’s decision not to include the USB-C port is downright baffling. Most of the newest PCs and smartphones have already embraced the new universal connector, and we don’t really see what benefits Microsoft’s terrible proprietary charger would provide.

The most egregious part is that Microsoft’s proprietary charger probably doesn’t do anything functionally better than the USB-C. In fact, our own experiences with the Surface chargers have been abysmal. They often don’t stay connected to the device and can even cover up other ports. As one of our editors who used the Surface Book and its crappy charging cable for several months put it, “It just doesn’t work.”
