Do You Tik Tok? Stop Immediately.

Jaja Liao was one of the first to present evidence and warn us, but few people listened. Now the U.S. House of Representatives says she was correct.

Former Google executive Felix Krause yesterday posted “TikTok, when opening any website in their app, injects tracking code that can monitor all keystrokes, including passwords, and all taps.

Jaja Liao holds a BA in Molecular Biology from Yale University and is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Taiwan. She lives in San Francisco and her articles have appeared in Forbes magazine.

Three years ago she quit her job at TikTok and and warned the world. She said the company was clearly controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and the app was spyware which impacted 80 million users.

She called it a giant data farm for the CCP. Yesterday, she wrote that at the time, “none of y’all listened to me!”

On Thursday afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Chief Administrative Officer finally issued a cyber advisory on TikTok. It was labeled “high-risk” with personal information being accessed from inside China.

The official House advisory says, “We do not recommend the download or use of this application due to these security and privacy concerns.”

Arguing Online

Arguing: I spent years. Likely hundreds of hours online bickering back and forth with “stupid” people online and in real life. It was an addiction. I almost physically couldn’t help myself. My ego thinks it’s fun. (still does). But over time and with maturity I have realized there literally is no point. You can play chess with a pigeon, win and he will still strut around the board and poop on it like he won.

Truth doesn’t need a champion. It doesn’t need to be argued. It simply is.

What I am seeing now is actually even more entertaining and way less effort. These 3D die-hards WANT to argue so badly. When you won’t and simply say “We will have to agree to disagree” they lose their minds.

Just as satisfying. Just as funny.
Far less of a time and energy suck.

On with the show and focus on the good 🙂
