Ok this is my blog and my opinion here. If you read what I write pretty much everything is all public with a source to where I based my opinion. I use logic for a lot of what I write and that goes back to a few years of writing code as it changes your outlook when you understand both the IT infrastructures, cost and then yet the marketing arm. Governor Christie I see as one of those valuable “hybrids” that Bill Gates told the graduating class of Berkeley was going to be one of the sought after individuals as they are leaders. Hybrids see more than one point of view.
Chapter 8 of the Killer Algorithm series covers a lot of this and how bad math, dirty code and formulas for profit that generate large numbers of flaws get used against consumers. Remember the folks that write some of these formulas don’t live in the real world half the time.
Back on topic, what if our President today had the same afflictions that President Roosevelt did who had polio and relied on an Iron Lung? What would we be doing? Would be trying to impeach or some other radical move as such? The question on the governor’s weight was right up there with the same stupid logic. We have analytics like this out there that run a mortality risk on almost everyone out there and get rich selling that data, so what’s the next step here, humanism or running mortality checks on anyone running for office or anyone wanting to get any kind of insurance claim paid, it’s about the same thing. Before we vote you in will mortality assessments be the call of the day, like we get as consumers? Again remember a lot this is not credible and is only guess work based on numbers as things in one’s live could change the next day, but we are so sucked in. Watch the 5 videos on the left hand side of this blog for a real data and life perspective. I think these people having to predict when we might die are “the evil people”…<grin>.

If we were so good at humanism today, I don’t think this group would need to exist but they do as we get duped into false values:
