@xolotl The caterpillar must eat itself before becoming a butterfly...not sure what that does to the metaphor but has to be useful somehow.

Here is the episode of South Park @bali_maha cited: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/With_Apologies_to_Jesse_Jackson

I think you don't own a lot of your identity as the world projects identities back onto us that in turn influence how we see and shape ourselves which influences how the world projects on to us.

@bali_maha gives an excellent example how Google data could never be neutral: A it isn't everyone, B it is banned. C I would suggest Google has a fiduciary responsibility to shareholders to maximize profit of data....That is not neutral.

Greg McVerry

There is no neutral data. They are all bias. You can't even think about the hypothetical. Deterministic algorithims always lose a bit and reinforce others .

@vahidm They are proprietary. They are not shared, just google identity graph examples..it is all marketing blogs.

Greg McVerry

One thing to note about identity graphs every single marketer and almost any big commercial vendor where you bought something has an identity graph on you.

Yes, the head to head count is in the US Constitution. I think what @downes meant when "counting isn't important" it meant more "it isn't as good as scientific modeling that did not exist in 1782" but US courts use strict textual interpretation.

@bali_maha offers a critique of legitimate peripheral participation in mentorship and learning, part of the reason Gee proposed affinity spaces instead of CoP.

@xolotl Privilege for you and I in terms of the skills needed, survival for others. Transfolk, for example bifurcate identities to stay alive.
