SpaceX now dominates rocket flight, bringing big benefits to NASA

"Space space x has been heavily revenue funded. And you know lots of that by NASA There's a great publication which is a great thing about NASA as as a government agencies. Everything's public services audit. It's called audit of commercial resupply services to the International Space Station and this is publishing in two thousand eighteen. That has great diagram of money that flowed to different companies spacex. Boeing orbit all Sierra Nevada. Others and what flowed for all the different programs? Be It commercial crew or Worshiping people. Up and SPACEX has received seven point seven billion dollars in contracts from NASA for launches which is is is astounding compared to a company. That would be trying to sort of do as much as SPACEX has done without actually having a customer on the end of every rocket it'd be it'd be impossibly hard. I mean they would. It would take so much more capital and it would change your priorities. And what spacex really has has done here and. I don't think I realized this. Every time I'm watching. One of these SPACEX launches and getting all excited about a new piece of technology On that rocket which by the way there's a new piece of technology on every rocket every single mission they fly is is different hardware than the previous one because they're constantly iterating every time they do that almost every time. Save for tenor so There's there's a customer that's paying them money to to send that thing up and so you know NASA has been responsible for seven point seven billion of that. The other thing that NASA has put in money for which has been really interesting is when you mentioned the spaceship David which ultimately be called the Dragon Capsule Developing the sum. Total the Falcon nine which were about to go into the story of and the dragon that cost about four hundred million dollars of Nasr's money and about four hundred and fifty million dollars spacex his money to to go and develop that and at some point NASA did an internal audit to basically say well. How much would that cost us if we didn't sort of bid this out To space x to go and do this you know if we had built this the way that we built the space shuttle. How much would that have cost us? And it basically what they find as the numbers about four billion. Wow so it is the cost absolutely like say what you will about. Wow spacex really got in there and scored that NASA contract. But they're they're saving NASA an enormous amount of money by sort of taking on the risk to vertically integrate all of this and making much cheaper her raucous.

Why many Facebook work-from-home employees will earn less

"We're going to start walking into what has become one of the most shrill debates in Silicon Valley these days and that's Cola Aka cost of living adjustment. Facebook made waves last week. When it said that perhaps a majority of its employees could be remote in the coming years but then CEO Mark Zuckerberg also said that those employees should expect a cost of living adjustment if they move to cheaper locations legis state that I cost of. Living adjustments have been policy companies for literally decades so while there has been intense debate about the comments facebook over the weekend. The reality is that these rules are basically how the rules have been forever to me though. Those rules are going to be completely broken down in this new world back in early two thousand eighteen. I wrote a piece called digital nomads. Are Hiring and firing their governments which talked about how governments are having to directly compete for the Knowledge Workers of the Sentry? I wrote with the increasing flows of migrant talent. We are witnessing the rise of new network sovereignty where people have attachments to countries built up over a lifetime of mobility and they may not even live there in its ideal form network sovereignty lines up with liberal values of open trade open borders and human freedoms highly skilled migrants have choices on where they want to live and their demands for quality of life amenities rights and freedoms create competition among governments to be more open and satiate those desires a country that even implies that it is backtracking on that openness can suddenly find a gaping hole in its incoming stream of talent one that might not be easy to repair mobility essentially becomes the new bill of rights. Now for those who don't know network. Sovereignty is one of those terms you use at a cocktail party to make sure everyone knows your Dick but beyond that now. The tech workers are being released from there. Highway one prison. I'm sorry I mean suburban corporate headquarters who is going to stay and who is going to leave one seat. Visa talked to over the weekend said that he expects managers at Major Bay area tech companies to be the ones heading out the ones who are making more than two hundred and fifty thousand have stability at home and at work and finding want to own a home that the bay area has made also elusive. That might actually improve the economics for some startup. Founders who can't compete with big tech on salaries networking though will still be the most critical function of these workers which is perhaps why one startup is getting another smack of the good stuff run the world which is at run the world dot today which is both an amazing and a bat bleep.

Europes data-privacy law turns 2. Has it actually made our information safer?

Europes data-privacy law turns 2. Has it actually made our information safer?

"This week marks two years since the general data protection regulation went into effect you know. Gdp are for a while. They're in the before times. It's all anybody talked about. It's a massive set of data privacy regulations created by the European Union and affecting any companies. That operate there. It is also the template for California's new privacy law the CPA company spent millions of dollars on GDP. Our compliance people expected finds so big. They'd put big out of business and none of that exactly came to pass but what has the GDP are meant for consumer privacy and more importantly our awareness of how're data gets used by companies. Jessica Lee is a partner with the law firm. Loeb and Loeb who specializes in privacy and she says so far. It's a mixed legacy we've heard complaints. Gdp are is kind of you know the dog that didn't bite. It was supposed to come with all of these big fines and enforcement. And that's really what got companies scared into compliance and two years later. We'VE HAD SOME FINES. But we certainly haven't had two or four percent of you know annual turnover. No one's going out of business You know even at the very high and defined it's still you know there's nothing in the billion dollar range and I you know. The enforcement has sort of trickled out as opposed to been this mass explosion of enforcement and so I think that's caused some frustration on the enforcement side but that threat of enforcement caused a lot of companies really to comply and I think compliance was the point. And so that's why I would give it you know in the B. B. Plus Range So companies did make changes. Do you think those changes will be lasting? I do I think that after the are you know obviously in the US we have the CPA. There's a law in Brazil. Multiple countries are standing up their own privacy regulations while they're not you know kind of exact matches to the GDP are they do reflect a lot of the fundamental principles and. I don't think it really makes sense to stand up a program like Something that comply with the GDP are and then tear it down because there wasn't enforcement because there could be enforcement and I think that while we haven't seen it at the levels at some were hoping for the threat of enforcement I think will still cause companies to keep their compliance programs in place up to date not perfect. I won't say that everyone's perfect. Maybe that's part of the complaint but I think that will keep it on the radar as a priority. Do you think there's anything that has trickled down to consumers like I feel like the most visible change. Is the annoying cookie disclaimers like if anything the Internet. Got a little more annoying for us. I wonder are there any other benefits that you can point to? I think this as a general matter consumers generally or more cognizant of privacy online and I think we still have a long way to go a lot of my complaint with some of the privacy regulation is that it doesn't contemplate consumer education enough internally. I think that companies do implement the Judy Pr's principles that your data might be held and be processed in a more compliant fashion meaning. You're not collecting more than you need. Or maybe there's additional security controls in place or maybe it's not being shared as widely or without you know contractual protections. Maybe it was before so there are things that are benefiting consumers that they probably can't say do you think that GDP are actually really did change the way that companies think about data and privacy or that this sort of like ongoing awareness campaign will lead to sort of a philosophical shift companies? I do I think so. I probably has a bigger impact for US COMPANIES. And we're going to see this domino effect of privacy regulation that you know if you weren't thinking about it for GDP are you'll think about it for if you're not thinking about it. I see CPA. You'll be thinking about it for the law that ends up in your state or the federal law that we have like you'll they'll be get to a place you can't avoid kind of following these principles although we are now seeing those principles collide with the covid nineteen outbreak and we've talked to futurist and legal scholars who are saying privacy. Might end up being a bit of a casualty of the pandemic so I wonder how those laws are going to interact with what public health officials may see as a need for greater surveillance or more data. Oh definitely I mean. I think we were always headed toward surveillance and so these laws weren't going to stop us from getting surveillance. The goal would be to get us there in a more responsible fashion. Which is I think the benefit of the GDP are is that because it's principles based even if you do do a lot of data collection even if you do do enhanced surveillance I think there are still some fundamental principles that will be in place The US laws are kind of more spotty and more prescriptive and so we don't have that kind of principles based approach to privacy. And I think that's GONNA leave us in a tough spot because I do think that we always have to make a trade off right so online. Sometimes a trade off with data is do I want access to content for free or you know or do I am I am. I willing not to search on the site because I don't want to give them my information. I think the stakes are obviously much higher. Where we're talking about cove nineteen. I think people are going to be willing to accept. More surveillance will be willing to give over more data to get freedom right to be able to go back outside again with some level of comfort. We're going to be pushing in the direction of surveillance and the question is. Will we be doing it in a way where we have responsible rules in place? Are we going to do it in a way where we might be in a little bit of a free for All Jessica? Lee is a partner with the law firm. Loeb and Loeb. Who Specializes in privacy

More people are discovering it and even though tiktok is in the news for its new. Ceo kevin meyer. Who was poached from disney and for record labels who think the service should pay more to publishers and artists for using their songs and for actual calls to ban it in the us over its chinese ownership and security and privacy fears. Well people like marketplace own. Hey super alvarado are finding that in quarantine. It's just kind of fun. More than three hundred million people downloaded tiktok in the first quarter of this year. That's fifty percent more than last quarter and total two billion downloads. Laura pearson a student at usc who happens to be my roommate started hearing huge buzz about tiktok ride before her spring break. Her friends were sending her lots of links sketches and dance videos. So she downloaded the out thinking. Yeah nice easy way to kill some quarantine time. It's like this cute little app. You can record videos. She started to spend more and more time on tiktok when she wasn't zooming into her classes soon enough. She started producing. She recruited arlene. Pereira are other roommate. She's of course also home from her teaching job at el camino college here in southern california. They chose zico's any song. So we spent the whole night trying to figure out how to do the dance and have a certain level of swag arse it out of the way in the living room wall. My roommate's discovered how much time it takes to perfect tiktok dance and that just gave me a whole new perspective on tiktok that you see these super silly videos but boy is it quite the production darlene. Then we all decided well. Let's do this. We invested in a really nice phone Tripod with a Cute Little Bluetooth control on Amazon. You can even find bundles.

What is the best browser?

What is the best browser?

"So on the computer. We have all these browsing choices from Google chrome Microsoft edge to apple safari to fire. Fox CHROME GETS. A bad rap. A lot of the time for being A piracy nightmare and for being a memory hog. Well our friend Rob Pecoraro has taken a in depth. Look at all of the browsers. And he's got the scoop so let let's do the lightning round. I'm an I'm name the browser you give me your quick thoughts on each. Let's start with Google chrome in a word security. Google has an outstanding record on security. Their browser is the one that has had the best Neither for the last several years. If you look at information security professionals computer you're gonNA see chrome is the default but you paid for that price in performance and privacy. Okay Microsoft Edge. That's the only watch you know. Microsoft switched US and Google's foundation. And it seems to be a more efficient more responsive browser in windows at the same time. Microsoft also has better tracking protection built into the new edge than it had before and they're working on adding some interesting features. They'll make it less of a look browser right now. I think it'd be hard to tell apart. Sometimes because so much of the core chrome experience still shows up an edge. Okay Apple Safari. That's apples privacy. First attempts it is a good solution if you live in an all apple universe where you can synchronize your browsing from your Mac to your iphone to your ipad but what you have a non apple device in that than the whole chain breaks down and you have to use somebody else's browser like what like what we talking about we talking about android phones where we talking about exactly. So for instance right now. I have an android phone in front of me also an IPAD right here. There's a MAC desktop on the desk next to me and charging a windows laptop so if I want to synchronize my browsing among all those devices I can use chrome. I can use fire Fox. I can use a Microsoft edge early enough. There is version safaris only gonNA work of these devices and Fire Fox. That's the indie favorites. It's was the browser that originally broke the Microsoft Internet explorer near-monopoly an essential favourite. It's had its market share declining at like what they're doing like the privacy I approach. They have they seem to have the users at heart and I hope the stick around because we already have given enough of our online lives over to Google and Microsoft apple all right and the browser. You didn't mention in your piece for USA. Today is brave. Which is they are pushing privacy a lot harder than some of their competitors. That's their calling card. Did you spend any time with brave? I like to limit this column to the browsers that people either a already had installed on their Mac or pc or be used before breakfast interesting working trying to present complete alternative to the existing at infrastructure. Where you would pay what's called a basic attention token of micro payment and cryptocurrency two. Sates her at in return for not showing any of the usual ads. It's ambitious. I hope they can make work. But for the near term purposes of what browser should you be relying on what you're working from home learning from home doing all this stuff from home? I think for most people that's not the answer already

The rise of Wikipedia as a source of medical information

"Any number of US wikipedia is the go to website for the latest on covert nineteen so how's it measuring up wired magazine editor in chief Nicholas Thompson went searching for answers one of the strangest things about the modern internet has been the rise of wikipedia it's just a decade ago when we talked about the site as let's be blunt please for lies and nonsense wikipedia is the best thing ever anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject so you know you are getting the best possible information but since then the site is transformed today we keep pedia is regularly the first place many of us check for information about everything in fact we could PDS pages of Corbett nineteen in the pandemic are viewed more than a million times a day an edited almost every hour of the day chances are good that when you visit the page thank you James Heilman may have just finished editing we don't have a vaccine but we do know that this disease can be stocks James Heilman or doctor James as he is known is one of the hundred editors are so with wiki project medicine which edits and reviews all the medical content on wikipedia his view the only proven way to stop coping nineteen is through social distancing do you think that social distancing is working yes definitely we have a good understanding of the transmission of disease you know if everybody was too old and currently still for four weeks this disease would be eradicated in his other life Heilman is an ER doctor at a small hospital in Canada I do not recommend people trust wikipedia blindly you know I think doing so would be silly yeah you know people shouldn't trust other sources of information blindly either wikipedia runs solely on the good will of volunteers like Dr Hileman some of your typical denizens of the internet others are academics and retirees like Rosie goodnight Stevenson we are diverse of wikipedia are really like a learning machine we collaborate we have networks of people who work in various areas she wrote English wikipedia six million article last year we've learned that what we did initially which were write articles that maybe didn't have a reference or enough references that that wasn't the best choice for encyclopedia article she says references and transparency are critical to wikipedia's success you can check every added if something is wrong you can go ahead and fix it it relies on reliable sources Catherine Morris the CEO of the wikimedia foundation the nonprofit that runs wikipedia she says that in comparison to the news we get off social media wikipedia almost always wins it turns out there's a lot of challenges with social networks when it comes to information distribution a lot of questions about whether they can be trusted with monitoring for that Moore says having your own private newsfeed can actually divide us what's the problem that we keep pedia doesn't have there's just one front page wikipedia doesn't matter if you are in Iran or in Italy or in Japan or sitting here in New York City you're all looking at the same information still even though medical pages are strictly monitored by the wiki med project and hot topics to get a lot of page views are carefully edited inaccurate information persists on some of wikipedia's less red pages when I started working on the story I looked myself up on wikipedia and someone had edited my entry to describe me as a Martian who is Nicholas Thompson according to wikipedia Nicholas Thompson is a Martian technology journalist so how do you keep information accurate and wikipedia wikipedia feels the answers to recruit more and more diverse editors one way in fact wikipedia has tried to expand its pool of editors is to edit a thoughts like this one held in Hong Kong in March with the PD becomes more important because of people using it in a more and more widely difference organization with their own political aims and goals what try influencing wikipedia companies governments and politicians try to edit wikipedia entries for their own benefit but we keep pedia editors are using computer programming to fight back now every time someone makes an edit from the White House the computer algorithm notes the edits and sends out a tweet about it but it's no secret why someone would want to influence wikipedia knowledge is power and that means that it is fundamentally disruptive often to those in power if you think about the history of what wikipedia is it's actually pretty radical and I don't mean that in like a political sort of left right away I mean that it is an inversion of power structures this idea the information can and should be available to all but it's no secret why someone would want to influence wikipedia which explains why lowly wikipedia which was founded in two thousand one by Larry Sanger and Jimmy Wales almost as a kind of experiment has grown to be one of the most visited websites on the planet it also explains why it's banned in China in fact one in three Americans now gets their medical information from the web which is fine with doctor how I don't mind having an educated patient and you think that having accurate information about Kobe nineteen on wikipedia can save lives you know right now the only tools we have at our disposal to combat this virus is education around how it spreads you know what this disease can be stopped by knowledge I genuinely think that Peter runs on generosity and care somehow this encyclopedia on the internet has given an outlet to millions of people to show that good in case you were wondering on March thirtieth an anonymous internet user base in Hillsboro Oregon using a cellphone decided to make two changes to wikipedia one was a detail about baseball's opening day and the other was about me I'm no longer a Martian technology journalist I am an American technology journalist so thank you anonymous internet user

Ecosystem Engineering

"Gave a little bit of descriptions early in your intros. But I'm really curious. How do you describe? What IS ECOSYSTEM? Engineering NF flakes. So I've my previous role. I was a manager also and interest netflix's have to do a lot of recruiting and I'd have to answer this question a lot. Like what do you do? And what is this an unusually posted by saying you ever go into a store costco someplace and you see the. Tv's for sale and on the box they have netflix on them. Netflix's already pre install on it or if you could buy a Roku already got netflix on their more comcast box you may or may not get it but if it does get loaded somehow. Netflix's getting on all these devices. How does that happen? What happens is there's a team at net flicks that makes the Netflix's player code and we package it up once a year and we call it the de k a software developers kit for the player and we might give it a name but every year we give it out to these partners in these partners are like Samsung L. G. Roku comcast of the world and they have to take it and make it work on their system. And so if you look at all the TV's out there and all the set top boxes you can see that you know they're different chipsets. There's different hardware. They probably have different compilers and compilers settings. They've God's maybe their own libraries that they have to do they have a different os on their TV. Every device out there. Basically a custom made device. And so how do you get those Netflix's player which looks pretty much the same once you start the APP whether it's on a Roku or a Samsung Smart TV or a cable set top box? How is it ended up at experiences? Pretty much universal. I would say in how that happens is there are other teams that work with these partners to make sure that AAA compiles and be that. It's good that doesn't crash We have a suite of tasks and Trevan helps with that that area. The part and my previous manager job was in area too. We don't let net Netflix. Go out or be sold or pre installed on and device unless we know that device is going to have good quality with it. I said it cheers. Cheers cheers cheers and how that happens. Is these partners. Have to run a whole bunch of tests and pass these tests and there's a a Cloud-based tests service that Netflix's made where they can take their device whether they're working in China or whether they're working in Japan or Korea or the US or anywhere in the world they plug it into Internet. They log into this cloud service and they can run tests and we can see these tests if they pass fail and so on so forth and was passed all these tests then it goes out into the field and people can buy them what people have them in their homes or they sign up for cable service and they get this box and they start net flakes. And if it's working great we can see the metrics remotely from here 'cause all these boxes and TV's are sending this logs all the time and if there's a problem we should be able to detect that and try to get it fixed so long story. Short Netflix's works with a whole bunch of other companies to get these apps working and what's out there are jobs not done. We have to make sure that it keeps working. And so that's where he may be a deluded to like. Qe which maybe you could explain. What the Kiwi Patrick. Is that your your teams looking at sure. So Kua we. Quality of experience cheers. Cheers kind of set. You up for that one. They are metrics that deal with how the APP appears to the user. So this would be. Things like is video smooth. Does it look like high. Bit Rate. So it looks like very high quality not just st but also hd for K. buffering a lot. Which hopefully it's not a re buffer is when you're watching in the middle of playback and there's this kind of spinner that appears on the screen where it's trying to load and it's ten percent twenty percent. Seventy five percent. Ninety nine percent starts playing again. It's probably because there's some interference on the network or there's a bug in the buffering on the device we want to keep all that buffering to a minimum so that when you start watching it smooth. There's no interruptions but it's not just limited to that if you have trouble starting the APP or if you're in the middle of the APP crashes or there's like network fluctuations where it goes high quality low quality too much on. These are all things that could be addressed usually on the device side and try to minimize those as much as possible wherever possible. Even things outside of the network that users network or the service provider's network lately. Yeah that's another one. I forgot about that one. The time it takes for you to press the button versus how long it takes to start the actual playback. Hopefully it's around four or five seconds but on some devices we see. It's as long as twenty seconds thirty seconds. That's something that could be fixed on a device. Hopefully I think that's always been something that I've actually been amazed at is just Michael. You paint the picture of the ecosystem of all the different TV devices. But when I think about it too is the Netflix. App is being built for something like a roku stick. It's a lower powered device. And then you have something lake the playstation four or Xbox at you can also play on. It has a lot bigger assessor. I think is really interesting. How you there's large ecosystem of devices that we are supporting and so I can imagine that becomes a lot more challenging in your world to to support all those different variables are those devices and especially when you think that every one of those devices basically a custom made device very few devices. Look or act exactly the same from the code perspective and so it's it's a challenge to make sure that when you start Netflix's whether on a fifteen dollars stick if you bought it on sale the way up to four hundred dollars playstation or even a three thousand dollar four K. SMART TV that the Netflix's experience is pretty universal. On all of them. You still log in the same. You still have your same catalog. He still are able to see and navigate through the you. I pretty much the same. It's pretty familiar despite that range and I think that's pretty

I'm sorry I on. Their computer looks terrible. It's very low resolution and everybody wants to look better And they also want a livestream and talk to their customers and things like that now. This is a camera that you can't currently use for zoom meetings and the like but you're you're gonNA be bringing out in a software update to let you do that. Tell everybody how that's GonNa work.
