I find it funny that all sites have been encouraging posting personal info online for almost a decade now; and ONLY NOW with the cambridge analytica fiasco, did people realize "holy shit, our personal info is online for others to see!".

People need to realize that others can see what you post on the internet.

Yeah, it took me a second reading to fully comprehend but it does make sense and is realistic. I'm a bit distanced from a lot of this (I'm actively revolted by lots of advertising and pop media) and never really studied the social impact of targeted marketing so it too a bit of time to properly understand how reasonable those content marketing implications are.
Whenever I think I am weird or crazy, I should take a step back and see how poorly the non-critical consumers are doing...

Yeah, I understand the part about targeted marketing selling lifestyle narratives and turning people into cults (see any Apple fanboy).

But I don't exactly understand the autonomic intelligence part.

I believe they are talking about automated trading, where computers will trade stocks. If you have machines capable of trading thousands of times a second (maybe a few orders of magnitude more), then I think it makes manual, large-scale pretty futile.
These machines don't just look at stock prices, they look at media. One interesting side effect is that Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s stock rises whenever a film Anne Hathaway features in is released because naïve bots will/would mistakenly associate the positive feedback to Anne Hathaway with Berkshire Hathaway and trade accordingly.
I can't say that autonomous intelligence is the right word (nor am I an expert on trading) but I believe the point is that a lot of this flow and decision making has left human control and that may not be a good thing. A similar automation would be present in implementing targeted advertising online, so I believe that is the connection anon was making between the two. Mindless algorithms are significantly affecting society and culture and they believe it is responsible for a lot of agrravated political hostility. I'm honestly not too convinced that is the main reason, but I may be wrong.

^^I am tired and re-reading this, it's a bit disjointed. I hope I got some ideas across though. There are different systems used by all kinds of companies to sell, trade and advertise, which are basically feeding each other information. They take this information and make (seemingly) profitable decisions, which other systems will use to make their decisions, etc. This would cause a lot of those feedback loops.
Eh, maybe I should stop typing and think first...

Who is all this even for?

It seems to be massive... overcompensation(?) by the parents, which is understandable in the end as an side-effect of grief.

How can they stop you, just put the favorite toy in the coffin alongside his body.

What are they gonna do, dig up the child's grave?

No, that was a different kid than the one pictured. Disney did not want them to put spiderman on the gravestone or something.

>How can they stop you

Disney effectively runs the United States through their legion of lawyers. They can stop you, they can sue you if you do it. They have sued hospitals for putting up mickey mouse decorations without their say so.
