politjobs job alert UK 2017-46 – the worm turns

It’s hard to work out when the worm turned for Big Tech. Big Tech was, almost by definition, progress, Matthew Gwyther remembers. But now it is on the reputational back foot. Facebook suddenly became a rapacious Goldman Sachs-style giant squid sucking all the advertising pounds and dollars – or indeed, rubles – from an increasingly desperate legacy media industry. Twitter detects 3.3 million suspicious accounts each week these days. Uber’s zeal became a vile, sexist, excessive fierceness; Amazon’s control of 43% of online retail meant everyone selling anything from buttons to ball-bearings got squashed, he reminds us. The shattered confidence in Big Tech shows how fast public opinion changes. Today your branch is the rising star, tomorrow you are the robber baron. If this fact does not scare you, please find attached some jobs and as usual more on politjobs.uk!
