How Coronavirus Is Finally Fulfilling the Internet’s Promise

This spring, teens are trying out their rented dresses and tuxedos, perfecting their makeup, and practicing their dance moves to get ready for that big prom night out in their own homes. Vacations have become staycations, and let’s-meet-at-Katra-Lounge-but-if-that’s-too-far-let’s-just-do-something-in-Williamsburg birthday plans have evolved into virtual parties that start with the exciting step of downloading Zoom.

Before the era of COVID-19, people were anxious about screen time destroying our ability to connect with each other in real life. But for those 13-year-olds who don’t want to cancel their bar mitzvahs and that couple who had their heart set on that anniversary trip, screens are now the best consolation prize.

Health crises eventually end, and soon, people will get comfortable being within 6-feet of each other. But in a post-pandemic world, we may realize being that close and touching a stranger’s hand isn’t even a risk we’re willing to take—or a risk we have to take.

“I think it’s going to make us consider what are the advantages? And what are the advantages of being there in person and what do we really miss and need?” says Ioana Literat, assistant professor of Communication, Media, and Learning Technologies Design at Columbia University. “I think that the emphasis should be on human agency. Right? It’s not what social media does to us, but what we do with social media.”

How Science Changed Sci-Fi About Mars

Without science fiction, you might not be reading this. You also might not be doing your holiday shopping on Amazon while streaming a John Legend’s new Christmas Album on Spotify and looking for a “cuffing season” buddy on Hinge. In short, if not for sci-fi, you might not be taking part in any of the modern wonders the Internet has bestowed upon us.

This is because Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, may never have conceived of the idea if not for Arthur C. Clark’s “Dial F For Frankenstein,” a short science fiction story that first appeared in Playboy and helped inspired the young inventor. It’s just one example of the symbiotic relationship science and science fiction have had throughout modern history.

VICE News recently spoke with noted science fiction authors and scholars, including The Martian author Andy Weir and The Expanse co-authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Frank, for a series exploring the often inspiring, occasionally terrifying, and always thought-provoking ways science and sci-fi have overlapped and shape the world around us.

Feminist Apparel CEO Confessed To Sexual Misconduct And Then Fired His Staff (HBO)

Alan Martofel is the CEO of Feminist Apparel, a T-shirt company run out of a New Jersey strip mall.

After Donald Trump’s election, a number of Feminist Apparel campaigns and products went viral—and its shirts were a common sight at women’s marches. It was a Hashtag Resistance success story, with 360,000 followers on social media and a growing staff.

But this past July Feminist Apparel became the focus of a global Internet shitstorm, when Alan fired all but one of his employees.

It started five years ago, when Alan wrote a Facebook post admitting to having ”grinded up on women on buses and at concerts without their consent” and once putting “a woman’s hand on my dick while she was sleeping.”

He cataloged his sins, apologized, and declared the creation of Feminist Apparel his “humble attempt” at penance.

The post was public — and has since been deleted. But his employees had no idea. And when they discovered it, they were furious.

Alan had other ideas. Feminist Apparel would remain in business. But in an email to staff, he informed 9 of his 10 employees that they had been fired.

Feminist Apparel’s ex-employees say that the truth about the company’s founding is only part of their problem with Alan. ​​ ​

Is there such a thing as a ‘good censor’? Google thinks so…

When it comes to policing the web, Google thinks it knows what’s best for us. A leaked company briefing called ‘The Good Censor’ outlines it, and indeed more of the Internet’s behemoths, including Facebook & Twitter, are grappling with how they censor content. And that it’s done for our own good. READ MORE: https://on.rt.com/9g53
