I have recently come across a website which analyses data from facebook. Illuminus.com
They claim that they can correctly analyze your personality after only a few “likes”.
I checked it out and it is frightening. They truly are extremely accurate and what's even worse, they have a sinister slant. It is not only for exploiting your personality to sell you more crap. It goes much, much deeper.
I am classified as a “High Risk Individual” because they – just based on my “Likes” on facebook they determined that I am open-minded and extroverted.
Being open-minded seems to be a positive and harmless characterization.
But not so much if you put it in the proper context.
Open-minded individuals might also look into information deemed politically incorrect.
They might question the dogma. They might have thoughts of their own.
This way they become “High Risk”.
Check it out for yourself and get ready to be amazed.
Now, this data is already on the web. I think it is pretty safe to assume that there are more entities gathering data out there. More data than just your facebook likes. Everything you do connected to electronics.
I think the only thing we can do about this is to fuck with them a little bit.
Screw up the data. Take a big fat dump into their punchbowl.
It might not do any good, but at least it makes it a bit harder for them and scramble the AI brain.
The idea would be to start liking random shit on facebook. Liking Walmart or Target.
Follow CNN and post moronic, politically correct comments.
Search on Google for “Why Hillary is the best” or “Gender Transition for Octogenarians”
This way we can have at least a little fun while we are being fucked. Only fair.
