Re: “Forget Hillary's Deplorables. It's All About the Persuadables

Nice review. Note the East Bay Express continues to support Fakebook by encouraging you to post this article in your feed. It is the first button at the top of the article. Beware.

Re: “Staffing Versus Services in Oakland

Property tax revenue must be at an all time high but government has no money. All those big salaries and stock sales from local tech and other industries do not seem to be much help... the next downturn will be a disaster.

Re: “The Return of Gear

My cassette of Joy Division's 1980 album Closer sounds amazing. If I had somehow ended up with a CD instead it would not have had the same impact. The sound is like a giant grey fur coat that hangs in the room enveloping all. Cassette accentuates the low end and melds the instruments it like a custom remastering in the space where it plays.

Re: “You Won't Be Able to Take Your Eyes Off of 'Unfriended: Dark Web'

Is this horror show about what Fakebook staffers do to blow off steam when they are not busy handling government clients? Scary indeed.

Re: “The Firing of Captain Mark Gagan

This compelling story should be made into a screenplay to maximize distribution and impact. Changes in society and improvements in the accessibility of data are enabling the ability to more easily see the gap between trust, transparency and accountability, and leadership and reward. Understanding and communicating the problem are critical first steps. Then, action must be taken to correct injustice and fraud to protect our citizens.

Re: “Will Oakland Become First U.S. City To Ditch Wall Street And Establish A Public Bank?

I want Wall Street's role in the overall global economy to be less than it is today. It would be great to eliminate them from Oakland altogether.

However, Oakland has frequent management and corruption problems and may not be capable of managing a bank. If Wall Street isn't held accountable why would the Oakland bank be any different?

Re: “Bay Area Activists Protest Peter Thiel's Partnership With Immigration and Customs Enforcement

As a wise sage from the 20th century suggested, "the media is the message". And the message here is that the media you are using is creating data that is being used for someone else's profit and, in some cases, against you and your interests. Take action and disconnect from Fakebook, Pay Pal, Amazon, iTunes, etc.
