Machines are getting too good at judging humans
Code:
Kaggle, a San Francisco-based startup that hosts data science competitions, has uncovered some disconcerting insights about human behavior in its two-year run. At times, its founders have been surprised by the accuracy of an algorithm, and the competitions continue to evoke controversy.
In short, data can be dangerous.

I found the 2) “The Twitter psychopathy competition” especially interesting. Now imagine what can be done using
Facebook data.

Without sounding like a conspiracy theorist, I can't image what governments are doing with all we've said on the
internet (facebook, twitter, forums, sms, skype, phone, etc. etc.).

That's another reason not to become a technology slave.

Scarey shit

You're never going to say the things you want to say.
The things you want to change will usually stay that way
The promises you break outweigh the ones you keep.
Paint upon the wall for the hundredth time.

And that was several months ago. Don't want to imagine what can do now; technology is advancing too fast and the worst thing is that people is happy to let anybody know about their lives.

Yeah, it may sound like a conspiracy but I think this is pretty real.
