Pharmacovigilance…

A new word, in a handful of similar ones, which have one main purpose: to cultivate the mysticism of power… What exactly is this “pharmacovigilance” that came up for the first time in modern social life? If you ask an “expert” (or even a government official) in our area, 11 out of 10 will try to deceive you. It is …

Technical details…

Remember the “debate” last spring / summer about digital tracking techniques? When mobile phones would (supposedly) communicate with each other “informing” their users that they were “at a distance of infection” from someone “positive”? And that all this would be done “anonymously” and with “respect for privacy”? A few days ago, a u.s military (specifically its air force) research center …

Inadvertently (totally…)

The australian government, wanting to protect the health of its citizens (what else would a government want today?), last April, suggested that they download a contact-tracing application on their mobile phones… To protect them from the bad encounter with… you know who! Given that users (of the application) had to fill in their personal details (name, age, phone number, postal …

Latent language…

Eye movement, hand trembling, body posture, contradictions in narratives and much more, are elements of the live communication that can show (or hide) the sincerity. The codification of these elements, first as subject matter of the social and behavioral sciences and then as data fed to machines that design charts, has provided our wondrous civilization with, among other things, the …

what a world!

Under no circumstances would we recommend… netflix to anyone! Or anything like that. (Some book yes…) But on the occasion of the documentary “the social dilemma”, where various “repentant” executives / inventors of applications and technologies that have proven to be huge commercial successes and cultural / intellectual / moral hurricanes (related to antisocial media) become accusers of their own works, consider this: Would you ever trust a fetishist (of technology, religion, commodity) even if he or she sincerely wanted to set you free from a fetishism?

constructions of realities.

How easy is it for everyone to create their own reality? However easy it used to be in the past, the possibilities offered by the new technologies of the 4th industrial revolution make it even easier – and more “fun”. As the means change and evolve, the end remains the same; to create and maintain ideologies. Here are two of the many tools that can be used by anyone to create “fake news” and / or “fake faces”.

Total “health protection”: automated incrimination…

If you were planning to travel outside national borders, even within the “Schengen area”, you certainly have various problems, difficulties, obstacles. Everything may be hastily built, but violently on the theorem of infectivity of social relations. Many (state and business) “resources” have been allocated to maintain the terror – of – disease. It’s tyranny – but, don’t worry. Temporary inconvenience, …

Ιm-mobilize it – better off!

If they can find out, through the mobile location signal, who’s inside a shop to shop, then they can tell who’s came in to loot it! Right? Right – but this fact escapes perception… Foursquare, for example, is a 12-year-old american technology company. It specializes in (geographical) location determination that is not only called “geolocation” but also “geofencing”. There may …

The orchestra of “truth”

The control of the media and, consequently, the manipulation by the media is not a new trick. If we still need to prove that “the news” are used as reality shapers, then we are many steps behind anything competitive. However, during the “pandemic crisis” it seemed that this was not a given.

Contact surveillance – the applications

On May 5, england began the pilot application of the contact surveillance platform on White Isle. Undersecretary of state for “health and social welfare” Matt Hancock announced the launch of the program with a short video that would look more like a “war and armaments” ministry order. In this way the “order for voluntary use” of the application appears as …

Social alienation and “contact” surveillance

Something tell us (not “something”, but many things tell us!) that when from this marginal corner of cyberspace we insist that the supposedly killer covid-19 virus is the alibi for and flag of violent reconstruction of social relations (of the social factory), the violent and fast acceleration of machine mediation (engineering of everything), and the assault of neostatism, we are …

Behavior surveillance and control/shaping: the only real health is the health of the machine!

On April 5th, one could light-heartedly read in the pages of the regime newspaper kathimerini: Kaushik Basu, an economics professor at Cornell university and a former “world bank” chief economist from 2012 to 2016: “…We know from older studies that pandemics damage trust among people and this may, in turn, negatively affect development, even after their decline. I also believe …
