5G got me fired

2018-10-08 02:47:03.767981+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

Shadow forwarded along: John Dvorak: 5G Got Me Fired. (Archive Today link)

The tension between advertiser vehicle and journalism continues to get more and more stretched. Technology reporting has never been great, but especially as we see more behavior that looks like deliberate trolling from national newspapers, and how that's impacting who is and isn't viable in national politics, it's useful to look at the fringes.

That second link is the Archive one you sent me but, oddly, it's different from the one you posted in the comments.

(I posted both because I never know which one will actually survive...)

Yes. The link I posted is to the actual article that got him fired, not his talki8ng about it.

Okay, he's got some fine concerns there, but

When you do a search for "5G is Safe" on Google and Bing, you get a number of negative stories and a laundry list of why some people believe it's unsafe. ...

There is nothing that someone somewhere on the Internet doesn't think is unsafe. There's still a large "get WiFi out of schools" push near me. That statement... makes me side with his editors.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
