Mark Zuckerberg adds his name to growing list of universal basic income supporters

  • In his commencement speech at Harvard last week, Mark Zuckerberg, a man worth an estimated $63 billion,  shared his views on the future and the economy and what he believes it will take to fix it.
  • According to Zuckerberg, the answer is universal basic income.
  • “We should have a society that measures progress not just by economic metrics like GDP, but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful,” Zuckerberg said in his speech, according to Business Insider.
  • “We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas."  Read more (5/25/17)

New data trove will use Google and Zuckerberg money to shine a light into our police force

  • A pair of internet giants are teaming up to bring a privately-funded answer to the yawning gap created by the inaccessibility of knowledge about a very public function, policing.
  • A new database called Measures For Justice is publishing an easy-to-use site that will collect criminal justice data buried deep in clunky public records systems.
  • With millions of dollars in funding from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s charitable foundation and Google, Measures For Justice will attempt to build one of the broadest, most accessible stores of police data available to the public. But it’s going to take a long time to get there. Read more (5/25/17)

Pipeline Expansion Means Increased Violence Against Tribal Women
To say I stand in solidarity with Standing Rock is an understatement. The Dakota Access Pipeline starts 17 miles from my hometown, in Stanley, Nort...

I see this needs to be shared again with the latest stunt Mark Zuckerberg pulled when he made a post about fracking, leaving the impression that it is safe while passively mentioning renewable energy. Of course all the Indigenous women had to remind Zuckerbergs audience that we do not “feel safe” around resource extraction sites and man camps. (Most prominently women from Bakken commented, given they have lived this first hand being one of the communities impacted by the “oil boom” even before the increase out west) . I just hope people are paying attention because now that word has gone around that he may run as a political candidate, these dynamics are important. Look at the colonizer stunt he tried to pull with Hawaii and now this? Even if he states these things politely and says hes learning, there still is a need to be critical of acts of colonialism and imperialism, otherwise they continue. I see zuckerberg as being the next polite colonizer like Trudeau, and he will quickly raise to prominence given his hypervisibility and stakes in FB. People will confuse that with expertise or simply yearn to gain proximity to that, so they will root for him. I also forsee the people who will defend him because “hes nice” meanwhile ignoring the ways Indigenous people continue to be erased while fighting to maintain sovereignty and autonomy.
