NEWS & TIPS
Up to 10 million net neutrality comments were bogus: NY attorney general Children, the elderly, and dead people are among the most active in submitting input to the FCC about its net neutrality policy. That’s the conclusion you would get from reading the organization’s database of comments that’s it’s required by law to collect and consider before it changes major regulations like those protecting net neutrality. Microsoft is giving Bing more intelligence—and a dash of Reddit At an event in San Francisco, Microsoft just unveiled a bunch of AI-related enhancements for its Bing search engine . Research honcho Harry Shum also welcomed Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian onstage to introduce a deal between the two companies which will integrate material from Reddit’s communities into Bing results. Among the new features: Better top-of-the-results answers to precise queries such as “movies directed by spielberg starring tom hanks,” as well as more open-ended ones such as “is kale good for you?” (The latter sort may present opposing viewpoints and footnote where it got its information.) A new search feature called “Bing for Business,” which puts items from your company’s intranet, such as org charts and information from employee manuals, at the top of results. Improved image search that lets you perform tasks such as searching for a dress, which gets you similar ones with links to buy them—and lets you then crop the original dress image down to the necklace being worn with it, for necklace-related results. Additional context with answers, such as not just informing you that Costa Rica is 19,730 square miles big but also noting that this makes it twice the size of Massachusetts. As for the Reddit relationship, it will bring discussions from specialized subreddits and Ask Me Anything sessions directly into Bing results—with the aim of buttressing areas where human understanding and opinion is crucial and answers can’t be ground down to a binary fact or two. Ohanian showed the results for “How accurate is Band of Brothers ?” and said “As humans we love this, especially if you like history—this is what we relish…but robots don’t work so well with the nuance, unless they have the data.” What 350.org Can Teach Us About Effective Social Change “We need to view the fossil-fuel industry in a new light. It has become a rogue industry, reckless like no other force on Earth. It is Public Enemy Number One to the survival of our planetary civilization.” With these words, environmental activist Bill McKibben launched a radical and moral broadside against the fossil-fuel industry and its contributions to climate change in Rolling Stone magazine in 2012. Bill McKibben [Photo: Nancie Battaglia] In a coordinated move, the McKibben-founded climate advocacy group 350.org launched its Go Fossil Free: Divest from Fossil Fuels! Campaign with a stated goal to “revoke the social license of the fossil fuel industry.” With the help of activist college students, the movement sought to stigmatize fossil fuel companies, restrict future cash flows and depress share prices by compelling universities to divest their holdings in these companies. Now, five years later, the effort seems to some to have been a failure, at least by the financial measures they laid out. Only a limited number of institutions have divested their endowments, and the stocks of major fossil-fuel companies show little effect. But in doing a network text analysis of news articles, we found that by other measures the effort has been a success. Exhibiting a phenomenon in the social sciences called the “radical flank effect,” McKibben and 350.org have dramatically altered the climate change debate in the United States. Their success on this dimension offers important insights relevant for all social activists to consider With Trump, The GOP Is Playing A Game Of Diminishing Returns This story reflects the views of this author, but not necessarily the editorial position of Fast Company . In December 2016, South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham emerged as one of the strongest Republican critics of Donald Trump, and particularly, of his ties with Russia. Graham called for a bipartisan investigation, warning that while the Kremlin had targeted the Democrats this time, it could be the Republicans next. He noted that Russians had hacked his email , and proclaimed: “Russian hacking during the U.S. presidential election is not a Republican or Democrat issue. It’s an American issue. We must stand together.” One year later, Lindsay Graham is taking a different stand–alongside Donald Trump at his golf course, which Graham deemed “spectacular” in his latest bout of gushing sycophancy toward the POTUS he once rejected. On November 30, Graham slammed the press for characterizing Trump as “some kind of kook not fit to be president,” directly contradicting his own words from 2016, when he said: “I think he’s a kook. I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office.” What changed between 2016 and 2017? Plenty
