The definition of "irony": going to a publisher's website for a book on state surveillance, and being hit with a pop-up message saying I have to accept "tracking" cookies.

Citizen volunteers this morning brought mops, towels, & water buckets to clean up Kwai Fong station, after police fired tear gas directly into it on Sunday—against all rules barring the chemical substance from being deployed indoors. Via @StandNewsHK

I sooo wish we would adopt question time. Hell I’d take it at even the local level at this point.

Actually, it was Dems on the Commission that did. One of the best, blistering FCC dissents was by GOP commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth. (Eg, "counting 'voices' in a market [is] akin to counting angels on the head of a pin"; at https://transition.fcc.gov/Speeches/Furchtgott_Roth/Statements/sthfr938.html ) https://twitter.com/reckless/status/1162140408316682240

For a wonderful glimpse of great parliamentary democracy in action, the final UK "prime minister's question time" of David Cameron in 2016 can't be beat. If only other democracies were as sharp -- and pragmatically idealistic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MoHS_GK4dM

This is obvious but bears noting: if we can't trust the president with "small" things like a jail suicide, how can we possibly trust him on something big (when it counts and we need leaders) like whether to go to war? This is dangerous and today's morally bankrupt GOP enables it. https://twitter.com/davidfrum/status/1160519631347560448

According to award-winning US #journalist, Kenneth Cukier, #BigData is a tool that will #transform how we live, work, and think - and unless we’re #careful it will burn us.
