If nothing else convinces you that tech education is imp "hopefully" today's hearings will. Even if folks don't go into tech it's vitally important that future generations understand 'how tech works'. As one of my fav sayings goes—"code or be coded"- Rushkoff #FacebookHearing

The biggest damage done by Facebook isn't data mining. More damage is done by Facebook algorithms which give users news and opinion they are predisposed to agree with already. #FacebookDataBreach #facebook

"…the raw data that @Facebook uses to create user-interest inferences is not available to users. It’s data about them, but it’s not their data."- @alexismadrigal, on point, as usual. https://t.co/5TGGjYos4s pic.twitter.com/faWoWlyLEt
