The Tremendous 10 link roundup, #172

  1. Personal Data and the Organization: Stewardship and Strategy | “Personal data – used lawfully, fairly, and transparently – is central to helping organizations achieve their missions. Today, Boards of Directors, CEOs, policymakers, and others need to understand the wide range of data inputs, the broad scope of risks and benefits, and how privacy and ethics are at the center of an organization’s ability to fulfill its leaders’ vision.” We created this infographic in collaboration with the Future of Privacy Forum.
  2. We Read 150 Privacy Policies. They Were an Incomprehensible Disaster. | “In the background here are several privacy policies from major tech and media platforms. Like most privacy policies, they’re verbose and full of legal jargon — and opaquely establish companies’ justifications for collecting and selling your data. The data market has become the engine of the internet, and these privacy policies we agree to but don’t fully understand help fuel it.”
  3. The Day the Music Burned | “It was the biggest disaster in the history of the music business — and almost nobody knew. This is the story of the 2008 Universal fire.”
  4. 140,000 Visuals of Outer Space are Free to the Public in NASA’s Image Library | “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has created a library of 140,000 high definition files filled with photos, videos, and sound clips, all free and available for download. Visual and audio content of planets, moons, nebulas, and specific space missions, are searchable by file type. The library spans the last hundred years, and users can narrow searches to focus on any timeframe between 1920 and 2019.”
  5. What’s Next in Computing? | “The computing industry progresses in two mostly independent cycles: financial and product cycles. There has been a lot of handwringing lately about where we are in the financial cycle. Financial markets get a lot of attention. They tend to fluctuate unpredictably and sometimes wildly.”
  6. This page is a truly naked, brutalist html quine. | “Viewing the source of this page should reveal a page identical to the page you are now seeing. Nothing is hidden. It’s a true ‘What you see is what you get.'”
  7. How to Work 40 Hours in 16.7 (The Simple Technique That Gave Me My Life Back) | “I needed the Pomodoro Technique. Here’s how this incredible simple time management system changed my workday — and ultimately, my life. I think it can do the same for you.”
  8. The 10/10/10 Rule For Tough Decisions | “It’s easy to lose perspective when we’re facing a thorny dilemma. Blinded by the particulars of the situation, we’ll waffle and agonize, changing our mind from day to day. Perhaps our worst enemy in resolving these conflicts is short-term emotion, which can be an unreliable adviser.”
  9. Report: Google News Does Not Have an Anti-Conservative Bias So Much as a Pro-Credible Source One | “This Saturday, the Economist posted the findings of a year-long analysis it ran on Google’s news tab in search results, concluding there is no evidence that Google goes out of its way to mess with conservatives or lend a helping hand to Democrats.”
  10. This Picture Featuring 15 Tech Men And 2 Women Looked Doctored. The Women Were Photoshopped In. | “We meant no harm or had any malicious intent in doing this and we are sorry.”
