Resesi? apa yang harus diperhatikan? →

Meski media selalu mendengungkan resesi, baik indonesia, maupun dunia global, ini bisa jadi memang resesi atau sebuah self-fulfilling-prophecy, yang mana ramalan jadi kenyataan karena banyak yang melakukannya, karena takut atau dilandasi ramalan itu sendiri, dan kemudian jadi kenyataan.

Terlepas itu, yang pertama yang dilakukan tetap tenang, karena faktor psikologis bisa jadi salah satu faktor bisa melewati resesi, dan tentunya tips finansial lainnya.

Why smart people are more likely to believe fake news →

…Some people are “cognitive misers”, for instance: they may have a lot of brainpower that allows them to perform well in exams, but they don’t always apply it, using intuition and gut instinct rather than reflective, analytical thinking.

Baca: punya otak tapi tidak digunakan. lebih mengandalkan insting dan perasaan, meski dia adalah lulusan S2-S3, atau kalangan berpendidikan. Belum lagi jika berita bohong/hoax itu dari orang yang kita kenal, dekat, maka seakan ada legitimasi terhadap hoax tersebut, peer validation, dan tentunya kesesatan berpikir (logical fallacy) ikut andil.

Pola yang biasa terjadi dalam penyebaran hoax ini

  1. Tidak membaca secara menyeluruh.
  2. Penggunaan gambar dalam berita palsu/hoax itu disengaja, karena otak lebih gampang proses gambar daripada membaca.
  3. Pengulangan, semakin banyak berita hoax itu didengar, diulang, berulang kali, orang cenderung akan percaya.

How I jumped from software testing to data science →

“Wow,” I thought to myself, “the goal of testing is to protect the customer from evil bugs created by evil developers, and the ultimate manifestation of that goal is to slip the ship date!” That misguided belief stuck with me and drove many of my behaviors around software testing for nearly a decade.

There are many misguded belief around software testing, they should help developers also and present some solution for every bug or future-bug that they think will hinder either devs or end users.

To have so many scenarios around testing, it will involving devs, and i kinda agree when QA and software tester engineer sits or doing test together with devs, PO within the same squad (no, this is not only applied to agile/scrum), it will creates dynamics within the team.

The Man Who Built The Retweet: “We Handed A Loaded Weapon To 4-Year-Olds” →

We Handed A Loaded Weapon To 4-Year-Olds

The retweet button are powerful, powerful enough to destroy ones credibility, it can started with false news, with link of course, and people without context or without reading the link, will be trigger happy and it will clicked retweet button without thinking.

The retweet and share, in other words, incentivize extreme, polarizing, and outrage-inducing content.

Very true, the last Indonesia presidential election are proof, the one who got the loudest voice are the true one, no matter how false the news is, no matter how much misinformation or just simply hoaxes, it doesn’t matter, as long that tweet (or other re-share mechanism) supporting our view, judgement or their bias.

World Health Organisation makes 'gaming disorder' a recognised illness →

According to WHO recently, they officially recognized the new illness called “Gaming Disorder”, based on the WHO Update and also many news outlet pointed out, the definitions are

Gaming disorder is characterized by a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour (‘digital gaming’ or ‘video-gaming’), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline, manifested by:

  1. impaired control over gaming (e.g., onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, context);
  2. increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities; and
  3. continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences. The behaviour pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning.

The pattern of gaming behaviour may be continuous or episodic and recurrent. The gaming behaviour and other features are normally evident over a period of at least 12 months in order for a diagnosis to be assigned, although the required duration may be shortened if all diagnostic requirements are met and symptoms are severe.

In essence, people who leave their responsibilities in favor of playing games, are included as gaming disorder, the game itself is not a disorder, probably just like eating, there’s an illness called eating disorder, but the eating part are okay.

Former Mozilla exec: Google has sabotaged Firefox for years →

… it’s very hard not to believe or take Nightingale’s comments seriously. Slowly but surely, Google is becoming the new Microsoft, and Chrome is slowly turning into the new IE…

Not just confusing, and i agree that they have grew larger and became the new Microsoft, Google products designed only to be use optimally using Google Chrome.
And yes this is bad, not to mention Microsoft also adopting Chromium for their Microsoft Edge browser, and now Firefox is the browser that use rendering engine other than Chromium.

I’ve been using Firefox for quite some years now, and happy with it, and because Google being evil and some of their site are better with Chrome, i go with Brave browser, it’s a Chromium based browser, but with less tracker than Chrome implmented (hopefully!).

Can you stop your parents sharing photos of you online? →

Prof Siibak says many parents feel that, as the adult, they are responsible for their child’s wellbeing, and don’t need their child’s permission as long as they believe the photos are not doing any harm.
However, she argues that parents should “absolutely” take their children’s privacy concerns more seriously.

Parents often set strict internet usage rules for their children to protect their privacy, but the “rules only seem applicable to children, and not adults in the family”.

I don’t share my kids photo online, and i hope other people also did not share my kids online, they have their own rights and in my opinion, > we don’t have right to post their picture to the internet.

If the ethical way did not stopping you to share your kids online, how about this one, IBM scrapped, scanning photos from Flickr to train their facial recognition software and god knows for what purpose that training could be. Not to mention this kinda challenge, the #10yearschallenge is a great way and a tresure for facial recignition, it can learn about age discrepancies from those people, and we gave them the access freely to our data.

Some people think it’s their rights to post their kids online, but they too have that rights to either posted it or not.

By Defying Apple’s Rules, Facebook Shows It Never Learns →

In public and even under oath, executives like Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg have spent at least a year—if not their entire careers—promising to do better by their users. But in private, evidence abounds that the company continues to flout every rule and attempt at oversight placed before it. They’ve promised to protect user privacy by cutting off developer access to data while continuing to give it away to corporate giants and major advertisers.

This is utter crap, and Google did it too.

How Imgur avoids the ugliness of social media →

when you post on Instagram you’re actually curating your own personal brand. You are sharing the highlight moments of your life and in order to make your life look quite good. But then on the receiving end, the people that are looking at it, it makes them feel just a little bit worse about their life because they don’t quite measure up.

Could not agree more, yes, i have an instagram, yes, sometimes i did felt that feeling, and i remember a words or something on interwebs.

Instagram is a the gallery of curated fake life”.

Dunno whether it’s true on people’s case, but i think the real life, the thing that we hold on to, people that we care (in real life) are much more important that how many likes we got.

You have to understand the impact … He was frowning while I was saying that. I said, ‘Why, why?’ He said, ‘Oh well. What are the other 3 percent doing, Maria?’”

Does Taking Pictures on Our Smartphones Have Any Effect on Our Memory? →

“When you take a photo of something, you’re counting on the camera to remember for you,” Prof. Henkel says. “You’re basically saying, ‘Okay, I don’t need to think about this any further. The camera’s captured the experience.’ You don’t engage in any of the elaborative or emotional kinds of processing that really would help you remember those experiences, because you’ve outsourced it to your camera.”

and it goes

This is called the photo taking impairment effect, where my camera functions as a dropbox for my brain.
