Is It Forensics or Is It Junk Science?
--
The public’s growing awareness of forensic techniques obscures a far more complex field that’s chock full of bogus science — and the people who champion it, often for profit.

For years, ProPublica has reported on these dubious techniques as they’ve wormed their way into every corner of our real-life criminal justice system.

So, what’s legitimate forensic science and what’s junk?

I'd like to see a serious U.S. legislative reckoning with data collection by _all_ tech companies, not just the backlash against TikTok.

As multiple high-profile hacks, leaks, and abuses suggest, every accessible repository of personal data is both a privacy and a national security threat.

Minimal collection should be the default, not just a privilege for the knowledgeable and monied.

Over the years, I’ve gradually assembled a holiday music that jingles my bells without roasting my chestnuts. I’ve decided to share it, just in case anybody needs to ruin a Christmas party or get rid of unwanted holiday guests. I present "Yule Be Sorry" on : open.spotify.com/playlist/5Hr1
