"Calling Bullshit": See the Syllabus for a College Course Designed to Identify & Combat Bullshit. Two professors at the University of Washington, Carl Bergstrom and Jevin West, have created a website meant to accompany a potential college seminar entitled “Calling Bullshit.”

"Calling Bullshit": See the Syllabus for a College Course Designed to Identify & Combat Bullshit

Here’s how Bergstrom and West explain the premise of their course. It’s worth quoting them at length. The world is awash in bullshit. Politicians are unconstrained by facts. Science is conducted by press release. The “Calling Bullshit” course would sit nicely alongside the work of Princeton philosopher Harry Frankfurt, the author of the fairly recent book, On Bullshit. To learn more about the envisioned Calling Bullshit course, visit Bergstrom and West’s website, where they have an FAQ that explains what a study of bullshit might look like. Note: You can download Harry Frankfurt’s “On Bullshit” as a free audiobook (or any other two free audiobooks) if you sign up for Audible.com’s free trial program.

Como decíamos, cuando WhatsApp incorporó el doble tick azul de forma obligatoria,hubo poco menos que una revuelta por parte de los usuarios.

¿Cómo desactivar los ticks azules de WhatsApp?

Al fin y al cabo, eso impedía, en gran medida, parte de la privacidad de las personas. Yo puedo haber leído un mensaje que me has enviado, pero no tengo por qué querer que tú lo sepas… ¿Por qué WhatsApp hace que, de forma obligatoria, tú estés al corriente de lo que sé y lo que no sé? En fin, era un reclamo bastante popular, así que, finalmente, WhatsApp incorporó la opción de eliminar este doble tick cuando lees algún mensaje que otra persona te ha enviado. Para ello, solo tienes que acudir a Ajustes > Info de la cuenta > Privacidad > Confirmación de lectura. Desmarcando esa casilla, nuestros contactos no sabrán si hemos leído o no los mensajes que nos han enviado. Eso sí, si activas esta opción para proteger tu privacidad, tú tampoco podrás saber si las otras personas han leído ya tu mensaje o no… ¡Vaya faena!
