Michael Mitzenmacher writes about a talk by Ben Edelman on all kinds of fraud related to online advertising. I highly recommend reading the (short) book chapter mentioned to get some basic insights on how the system works (e.g. elaborate "guilt distribution" schemes) and why the incentives to change (for almost all involved) are lower than one might, naively, assume.

Not quite unrelated: How thin is the line between working the system and gaming the system?"Kreaturen werden aus ihrem Lebensraum vertrieben."

Bestes Bild bislang im reichhaltig illustrierten Supportmaterial zu Martin Lindners Vortrag mikroinformation, "[...] darüber, was zwischen 1998 und 2008 passiert ist."Heinz Wittenbrink: "Twitter ist kein Werkzeug, sondern eine Kommunikationsform. [...] Mit Twitter kann man twittern, so wie man mit einem Telefon telefonieren, oder mit einem Blog bloggen kann."Matthew Yglesias: "I've seen a few people express the notion that [Malcolm Gladwell]'s conclusion — that success is determined largely by luck rather than one's powers of awesomeness — is somehow too banal to waste one's time with. I think those people need to open their eyes and pay a bit more attention to the society we're living in. It's a society that not only seems to believe that the successful are entitled to unlimited monetary rewards for their trouble, but massive and wide-ranging deference."

As to the backlash: Those who want science (should) know where to find it.
