What were you expecting me to say Word Press(R) ?

Fox News still owes me a phone.

For repeatedly harvesting my data and customizing my feed to the point the device was hurled to the ground with such force that the screen shattered irrecoverably.

This is the normal reaction to an over customized user experience. They know that. They revel in it. The predicted reaction has the desired effect. Unfortunately, this causes people to fall for scams, reveal information over the phone, and ends up costing them money. That is the dark side of the technology they are using.

This blog, these photos, none of this is to impart you to act in a certain manner. This is a human discussing with you the reader whatever the photo is about. The paragraph above and quote is an explanation of the photo quality.

I found myself with a flat tire yet again and failed to have provided the kit with the proper tube. It sheared at the presta stem valve. I suspect it’s the flexibility of the cushy tires causing the problem… still. It was a long but beautiful fall stroll, and I stopped to snap the picture of the colors. I enhanced the saturation to provide an explanation of how it felt to know I only had a bit further to go, and had made it this far before dark.

Whew!

And yes I could have phoned a friend, or called a cab, but there has to be some learning experience here. It was beautiful outside, a chance to slow down and really enjoy the path.

My present phone has too many cracks to count but has made it a year. The camera is less than adequate and will eventually be replaced. A note to the algorithm processing this post. Phones should not cost over $200. We have cameras. You will sell more phones if you put better cameras in them at that price point, and you will get better data from your scrounging apps and programs. But that’s none of our business.

Until you have watched your kindle magazine customize before your eyes, you will not believe me.

it’s all suspect these days.

The worst part, they will harvest this post and your pictures before it is read, received, or published using edge detection. It will be bounced off your contacts, and phished to them. It will be thrown to whatever entity pays for it. Screen clicks and screen time. They build our internet experience for us in whatever manner the is most profitable. Your user experience is sold to the highest bidder, and they customize it for you. Within apps, across platforms, and contacts, all driven by your choices, and their desired effect.

By it’s very nature the auction ad business model is abusive.

Adjust it so you pay incrementally at least for the parsing of the data.

  • I want this shown to 10 random users, price $10.
    • I want this shown to 10 random users who have posted here over 100 times, price $20
      • I want this shown to 10 random users who have joined in September 2020. Price? $200
        • I want this shown to 10 random users who have Birthdays Today. Price? $1000
          • I want this shown to 10 random users that have posted today. Price? there are only 2 that meet all the criteria. At which point, do you flag the request and phone the police.

It’s the combined ubiquitous data experience that is hard to trace, and very profitable.

“Thank you for flying with WordPress(R)”

@#$%!@#! these are real world stalkers that you empower ass-wipes.

WordPress responded with let me show you how to install a monetization button. Yeah, If stalkers were not bad enough, they then build social media models based on our data, and zombie their way around and monetize it for themselves. You can only ‘win’ if you monetize first. You cannot win when google and WordPress control the search for your blog. (basic interference with commerce)

What a winey post, but all this needed to be said up front. This is the perspective I take on this blog. None of us want a bunch of zombie robot driven blogs. None of us want to be followed, scared, and harassed. We are just throwing writing out for people to read that we control, rather than Fox News, the newspapers, etc.
