"Keep doing is stepping back as you put it the way we put it look at ourselves in the mirror understand these concerns people have I think we need to keep it this really matters so keep listening people talking about twenty six words section to thirty of the Communications Decency Act quote no provider user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider fast forward today what we see posted on platforms like Youtube and what they're going through right now has section to thirty done harm inch still exist I think section to thirty needs to evolve it was created by Congress in Nineteen Ninety six I think it was the right law for the right time the basic premise was these internet services are new they're young we need to give them an opera tree immature and the best way to do that is to immunize them from the kinds of possibilities that from anything that's posted on them yeah they won't have to worry about what CNN has story about that I would argue that they are gosh now I think that's where the world has changed these are no longer young services they're no longer small they are being used and even abused in ways that no one imagined in nineteen ninety-six now I fervently believe that that doesn't mean we should just throw it all out is I think if you abolished it you would probably disrupt social media to such a degree that it simply wouldn't work the way the public wants and needs but there are responsibility commissioner talk let's take a specific example and talk about what could change New Zealand you've talked a lot about the horrific massacre fifty one people in Christchurch New Zealand was live streamed on facebook it actually still you can still get it on what's APP because of the the way that that what's that word excreting bydesign content content on what tap cannot be monitored and moderated light cannon facebook and two thirty allows that to exist so what should we learn from that what should change well I think what is already changing what Prime Minister Justin Dr Dern did starting in New Zealand was basically say look Ah these are very popular services to use her words it can't be all prophet and no responsibility and so what has quickly been driven by the New Zealand government we've worked I've worked with With the Prime Minister and others in New Zealand and with the tech sector as a whole is to drive a series changes and you guys pretty quickly identified actually nine Microsoft services where the video could be uploaded some others everything from get hub and linked in xbox live one drive in the like it's a good example of the fact that people might sometimes say well you don't have to worry about this problem and then the the answer is well actually we do we do you. Interestingly Give Jeff bezos of Amazon a lot of credit here even though I don't believe were their platforms where it can be viewed no it's really interesting and I absolutely give not just Jeff bezos personally but the people who work at Amazon great credit because prime minister dern got on the phone she called a number of tech leaders and said I would like you to work with us to do something so that this doesn't happen again Amazon could have said we were not part of this problem there are other companies that said we are part of this problem but what Amazon did was in my view what we all need to do every day even if we're not part of the problem we can be part of the solution and that's how we try to think about it at Microsoft and I think it's fantastic stick to them as on did so just to put a button on it with facebook and how it was streamed on facebook as I mentioned just because of the design of what's APP it you know it can Dole circulate on what's up Sheryl Sandberg the COO of facebook has said they've used information from facebook and instagram to take action against some of those what's APP users but but still it's still there is allowing that to exist on their platform and abdication of responsibility I'm actually not familiar with the issue on what's APP so I rather than talking about something I don't know about what I would say is I actually.

You're actually I understand at one of the few white students in your class predominantly African American your it was so interesting this was it tends to involve lots of incremental steps along the way and that was true for us it Microsoft you quote George Washington and the book do you want to remind our listeners of what ny the front I would say the same thing to every American which is him specifically knowing the language is used and how he has dealt with Putin on the world stage in about the being a defining question of our time ethics in technology and I wonder if you think any big tech company in the last decade or two has actually been founded on a core principle of ethics I think there are lots of technology companies that have been founded on a desire to do good for the world I think there are many companies that believe that they do good for the world and indeed in so many ways they are but I also think that there is an twenty four I'll just say introspection because it's one thing to do what you love to do and be committed to doing good for the world it's another thing to step back and ask the harder question are we are we are there unintended consequences are there opportunities that were prepared look at and say this would make us money but we're not going to do it because it's going to put people's lives at risk or broader ethical issues our humanitarian needs at risk. I think it's in this area in part where there's an opportunity for I'll just say people across tech but maybe it's all of us to ask ourselves these isn't it I mean it's more than an opportunity right now I would argue from the outside that we're in a moment of crisis intern and how we get out of the this is going to depend which way big tech turns and we'll talk about sort of what Microsoft is doing on this front but you right when you create tech that changes the world you have have to accept the responsibility for what you've created in some respects has big tech created a monster that right now is out of control when it comes to People's privacy well we've created what is both a tool and a weapon that's why Carolina I entitled Her Book Tools and Weapons we do see technology gee being weaponized sometimes you know quite deliberately has a weapon as a cyber weapon or cyber attack but also more broadly and I think you're right to raise privacy as an issue or we need to think about the impact of technology on our jobs in the economy well Tim Cook Says Privacy in and of itself has become crisis is he right I do think it's all right to say that there is a privacy crisis and I think it will benefit us to treat it that way I think that what we should do as an interest three is start to extend to our customers the privacy rights that they have say under the law in Europe and you that not just in Europe and around the world you think that the last would benefit from GDP are I do actually I do we've been very clear we actually we called for National Privacy Law I gave a thousand five yes okay so help me understand the likelihood of that happening we just saw mark Zuckerberg go to Washington he met with the president he met with a number of people in the Senate how like how likely is actually because GDP are would be a huge change for big ten companies and the data they have to turn over individuals and the responsibility they have to take in the speed with which they need to do it well the first thing I would say is we actually do have he de facto National Privacy Law in the United States that will take effect on January first twenty twenty it's called the Law of California the Kelly Consumer Privacy Act was passed last year because one of every eight Americans lives in California I believe that what we're likely to see next year is most business says adapting it's more efficient to say hey we're going to adapt to California law and the fact that somebody else.
Inside Bill Gates' Brain with Davis Guggenheim
"Bills Brain three part documentary. Nfl I just watched it this week. Tell me how this project got started because you have you got a lot of access to gates and it's obviously Dan netflix unusual structure. You know three one hour episodes. Don't tell me how it came together so I was making the film waiting for Superman and we were almost it's done but it felt like he was missing. Voice and waiting for Superman was about public education's like how does this sort of failure of our public schools effect business and you know what better the thing to talk about. Someone who's in Silicon Valley or at least the business of Silicon Valley. He's obviously in Seattle but what does that do to growing the best business in in in America. How do you find talented educated. People had at his failure of our schools of some of our schools. I should say many are do really well but how does that effect are growing economy in in in the tech business. So I went up an interview bill. He was so great and so surprising that that I was like wait a minute this this person the needs to be reconsidered a because to give us the backstory. I was a I got a Macintosh nineteen eighty-four. It was the first person in my dorm Brown to get one. I think it was like ten had arrived at Brown in everyone of my floor huddled around this magical computer so I was a Mac. I was an apple guy and I always thought Steve Jobs is cool and Microsoft was just like for the business people and so I sort of held Bill Gates in my mind at arm's length that was like he just business guy. Maybe he's a monopolist. Maybe he's not but but you know I like. I like Mac and so what I finally met him. I was like wow. There's something he's doing right now. That needs to be understood. He is he's really changed his public image and I don't WanNa get into into that part of it because the weight inside bills brain is structured literally inside of every episode. It's almost like a thriller of the project that the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is doing doing whether that's toilets or nuclear energy or vaccinations then there's like the history which is what most people kind of assume you're going to get right. We're GONNA GONNA tell the story Bill Gates from start to now but there's this like thriller component of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation happening inside of it. How did you decide to like like musicnet structure. Go started filming and I actually got lost. I don't know how to make this because a lot of the work. They're doing a super complex. In also initially dramatically. It's not just add water in the story tells itself right and so I was experimenting with this kind of way of cutting back and forth between his biography in the work that he's doing and the first time it worked was when I in its in episode two I think is when he's trying to figure out why cases of polio keep popping up all over Nigeria in Afghanistan Pakistan and why past efforts was it failed and how he used sort of his brain had he delvin to sort of like crack that because people been trying for years they thought they were getting close and then it doesn't work it. Would I thought I'd do is show bill in the early days in highschool cracking the class schedule. It's sort of a famous story where his private private school asbill a sophomore. I think ask him when he's a software and then he does it in his junior senior year but they say you're. You're good at this computer thing. You know there's a famous terminal school only one terminal any school in State of Washington say. Hey you're good at this coatings and can you code the class schedule at lakeside aside and so he and Paul Allen Staple night figure out how you know because his lakeside had merged with girls school so they had all these different classrooms different for campuses and Bill Paul us sort of their brains and they're sort of algorithms to cracks in the same way he cracks the algorithm or tries to crack the algorithm for a radical polio he did things like digital mapping in predictive analysis on where cases of polio would show up so the story telling the whole story retelling for all three episodes follows that one example where we cut back and forth between something some way in which his brain worked or or something revealed in his character actor is historical story with what he's doing now to reveal how his brain works and how you know how he solves problems so you obviously got all this access testable to Melinda. You got a bunch of archival footage. I guess you would call it of them. When they were young when they were dating there's Video Ville hugging kids when they're babies as which broke me like you don't ever see that side of him. How did you go about getting access to build. The product was kind of the condition that I make for any movie. When I flew complained to commit to page talk him into doing it might get loud. It was like if we're if we're GONNA do this. You got to open up to me. I won't ask any questions to ask. I will put everything on the table because that's you know that's what if you're going to do a movie forgot to go make make that effort you open yourself up and the same thing. I did with bill and I have to save all the people I've ever made a movie about. He was the most open in the least concerned about Oh. Don't go there. Don't get this right. I mean I went. I went right into you. You know the depositions for the case. You know there's pretty harsh stuff in there about how the world sees him and I put all if even if you go and watch the trailer of the trailer in the opening of the move of the series is is this guy a good guy bad guy you know one. One voice calls him the devil I really wanted to say I want to put it all table. Say who you know. Let's let's put everything on the table and let's let's consider this man. Today did bill get any edit control. Do they get to say they didn't want anything in there. Now what I do is for every movie all when I get a cut that I like I'll go show it to people so I showed to Jimmy page edge or anyone else or Bano or Malala just because I wanna make sure that I didn't miss something or it didn't miss categorize something and often in every case you sort of. They say oh well. You know what there's another another piece that story that entail you and usually gets better but nothing was. I didn't take anything out that I didn't WANNA put in so there's sequence your time in the antitrust apiece. There's a sequence where you ask him if he was arrogant in step position. This is great because you know. This is a heavy topic now. We actually talked about it on this podcast. All the time like like are these companies to powerful should get broken up. Microsoft was arguably the first the current president of Microsoft Brad Smith. He's just read a book about basically asking being the government to regulate tech companies. It's very interesting but it he bill gates was the first as you note in the documentary. He's he stepped back from the operations operations of Microsoft to handle trial he gave this famously bad deposition and you ask him if he's arrogant and he he was like well look when you're a twenty year old billionaire. Maher sometimes when when you were getting answer. Did you sense that he was that he was shading or was he just telling you what he thought. Who's absolutely shading you. You Watch it. What's what's fun about watching. The movie and we put the full answer in is that he didn't WanNa say he was hacked arrogant. The Fun thing about making a movie is one of my agree. Teachers taught me this about storytelling is that you know that the filmmakers job is to plus two. The audience's job is for that sounds like a really pretentious film film school way of saying it but the idea is I ask if he was arrogant. He gives an answer. It's up to you and the audience to say and decide whether he's arrogant or not so I like to put that in there and let the audience decide for himself or herself. Do you think that arrogance however he wants to think of it is an asset to him and his current work. That's a good question. That's a really good question. I'd have to let him answer that. I mean I think intense focus. I think being very certain I think maybe with a touch arrogance. Get to this place where you're cutting through a Lotta bullshit so that is an let me let me qualify this answer by this is my answer not his answer but I do think that affect of people in the world have to cut through bullshit they have to cut through group think in their own group in their own company they have to cut through how the bureaucratic nature of a big company slows things down so if arrogance Y- like five percent or twelve percent arrogance and certainty and bull headedness it is effective. I wouldn't mind that I think sometimes a director of documentaries has to be bull headed and arrogant sometimes but then you have to sort of you know put guardrails ells on yourself. You have to have a few on that so that you don't go too far and I think clearly see footage in there. From the early days of Microsoft will they'll clearly went too far. Your gifts and that's actually the one the one piece of documentary that I I don't know how interesting it would be to everybody. I kind of understand why it wouldn't be there but it's very interesting to me is Microsoft soft was a ruthless company with gates at the helm and you you wave at it a few times right by their competitors date they crush them obviously netscape and eh interest trials there but there was lots and lots of other stuff they did to ruthlessly destroy their competitors along the way and that was all bill. was there a moment where like. I need to focus on that that stuff more or say. I just need to say at once and move on. There's other stuff. That's more important you I mean the the the the focus of the series is really not about that. I put enough enough in there to acknowledge it and say this happened but it wasn't an expose of the tactics. Microsoft in this period of time and so did just like the movie doesn't get into who all the details of the entrust case it doesn't get into all the details of why bill thinks that they were maligned nor does it get into all the details of why people think Microsoft is wrong. That wasn't the focus of the series. The focus of the series is a character study of a guy in in what is he doing with his life.

"In the United States in the democratic societies of the world. If we want to protect values that we think are timeless like Democratic Freedoms Human Rights we do need a more coherent approach in the United States across the democracies of the world and we need to get after we can't just study this and debate this and watch gridlock continued to unfold fold in Washington. DC or elsewhere. That's why we frankly are appealing to everybody trying to make these issues more accessible to all of us who are affected by them so that the public voice can be heard. Look I totally hear what you're saying about democratic values and human rights and somebody who's going to watch this interview view and say but what about all the data centers that they have in China right now and at the same time you've got possibly a million million and a half weeks in the western part of the country that are in reeducation camps in two thousand nineteen. Well actually one reason we devote a what an subways was the hardest chapter in the book to write about. China is because the complexity any of these issues there are certain services that were comfortable putting their services for businesses and the like but consumer data are consumer e mail service yeah we we don't have that in China. We don't have that in certain other countries. We don't put that Kinda data in certain countries because whenever you put data about somebody in a country country you put that person's most precious information potentially at risk you have to think long and hard. We need people to be thoughtful before we just build these data centers everywhere and put all the data in the world in them. You know you are the longest serving executive now at Microsoft in twenty-six years. What's the biggest argument that you lost where you wish you could say to. Everyone see I told you so. We should have done this well. I'd you don't become the longest serving anything by being the one who walks around saying I told you so that's usually not a recipe for success. we have learned so much over the years and you know not surprisingly you know as somebody who is in the middle of the antitrust issues issues at least to some degree in the nineties I was very happy when we all had the opportunity to learn some lessons that were so important about what it takes to just sort of step up and connect with people company's competitors governments the public and to me not a lot of life is about variations on that theme think about the long-term listen to what other people have to say be curious about their point of view but perhaps most importantly think about the public interest you know there was the old story of you know the CEO of General Motors long ago. Oh said that what was good for. General Motors was good for America. I have the opposite view. I believe that what's good for America will be good for Microsoft. We we are the product of the values of this kind of democracy and if we need to adapt to serve democracy we should and when we do you will do well all right.

"Detective coming up tonight is the president of Microsoft here with a new book about out the promise and perils of the Digital Age Brad Smith is joining us. Everybody someone is trying to kill Simba. Your phone sucks now and someone is leaving the White House but it's not who you hope so. Let's catch up on today's headlines. Let's kick it off with the big news of the day. No modern president has lost as many cabinet officials or senior advisers in the entire entire first term as trump has in his first thirty months. It's a record and now he's just running up the score major announcement even today by President Trump on twitter that he has fired his national security adviser John Bolton. This is the tweet I informed John Bolton last night that his services these are no longer needed at the White House disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions as did others in the administration and therefore I asked John for his resignation which was given to me this morning. That's right trump has fired John Bolton as his national security adviser and really it's no surprise because Bolton Bolton was just too hawkish for trump. His solution to every situation was bombs. What do you think about North Korea bombs? What do you do with Iran bombs? What do you get Mike Pence was secret Santa Bombs Yo yo you need to leave man and by the way Bolton was the third national security advisor trump has pushed doubts? Honestly it's amazing that America's unemployment numbers so low considering trump has fired half of the country but yes John Bolton is out and to mark the occasion his his mustache was lowered to half moss very very sad now in a normal White House house a transition like this would be presented very smoothly but because Donald trump is a messy bitch who lives for drama. Things are going down a little differently really president. Trump says he asked for his resignation but Bolton is pushing back. He says he offered to resign last night. Joe Just texted me just now. He's watching yeah. He said let's be clear. I resigned and I said do you mind if I say that while you were talking and he wrote yes so John Boehner's. Just told me texted me to said I resigned. ooh Shit just got real trump says he fired bolts and but Bolton's like Arnaud. I quit when you're trying to take credit for me quick. This actually makes me wish that hurricanes talk so hurricane Doreen could have slept back at trump last week during is totally GonNa hit Alabama and be like bitch. I was going nowhere near Alabama. Yeah keep talking and I'm GonNa come over there and blow that we off your head bad not with Bolton gone. The question is who will be the next to leave. Nobody knows but it was super weird. Surely the win trump fired Bolton Malania try to sneak out with him on also said to be fired. I'm also going all right moving on for some news. If you just bought a brand new iphone today you stupid apple unveiling its latest of iphones today. This is what the new iphone eleven I eleven and I eleven pro Max look like apple also unveiling its New Apple Watch Apple. TV Plus Streaming Service Service Service will be available beginning in November for four ninety nine. Man Apple is not messing around. They've already taken over phones all right now. They're trying to take over watches is launching TV shows takeover video games and next year Popeye's watch out. They're going to come out with a chicken sandwich. All it's so delicious I just wish the battery lasted longer. Now of course the big product this year is the iphone eleven which also comes in pro and Pro Roll Max which I think used to be called plus and X S. I think it's horrible consumers to keep up with and it's going to mess up how kids kids learn to count like seven eight ten.

That's it for the headlines. This move Scott Top story. The Donald Trump became presents. There have been a few major policies that have defined his time in office immigration trade tariffs and of course his push to add Colonel Sanders just to the Supreme Court but there's another set of trump's policies that haven't really gotten as much attention and it has I should do with killing animals. The trump administration has lifted an Obama era ban on importing trophies from elephants killed in two African countries administration ration- says it'll issue a permit to Michigan Trophy Hunter so he can import the skin skull and horns from a rare black rhinoceros he shot last year in Africa because the administration dismantled existing wildlife trafficking council and now has been replaced by sixteen individuals. They are mostly trophy hunters. We all know that the trump family family the to trump signs pictured as big game hunters that they're fans of the sport that's right. Donald Trump has made much easier for people to hunt endangered in animals in Africa which I guess for him as a total win win right I he gets to reverse something Obama did which he loves and secondly it means two of his his least favourite children will be spending more time on the other side of the world trump is like have fun in Africa boys by by by the way I I can't think of a more interesting way to die than being killed by Don Jr. Eric trump like if I was a lion and they killed my husband just lie about how it happened online it'd be like how does your husband die. was a skydiving accident. Lines can skydive no apparently not and you maybe asking you may be Oscar triple wise trophy hunting still even a thing in twenty nineteen well. Let's find out in installments of if you don't know now you know for as long there's white people have been colonizing Africa. Trophy hunting has existed as a way for them to bring home souvenirs and you know in a way I feel like us. Africans partly to blame. We should have had a gift shop. We should have had a gift shop but while these pictures may have gone at praising the one thousand nine hundred 's these days thanks to show some social media. The only thing that they generate is outrage in recent years. The hunting of big cats has sent shockwaves around the globe outrage in this country over the killing of a beloved lion in Zimbabwe by an American hunter. This photo from an African trophy hunt has sparked outrage across the country that same fire reignited ignited when a trophy hunting couple posed kissing over the corpse of a lion they adjust slang like I'm sorry man this is this is just disgusting. You killed an animal for fun and then you make out next to its dead. Body is like a fetish. No I honestly wonder like. Is this thing just for lions or do they do this every time there's a dead animal by every time they see roadkill on the highway. Is this couple. We'll just like honey pullover. I'm so turned on right now. It's also disrespectful like imagine if it happened the other way around yeah like a family funeral funeral all of a sudden just like two lions humping at your desk coughing. You wouldn't be happy with what's interesting. What's interesting about trophy? Hunting hunting is that we all assume people do it because they don't care about the animals but according to the hunting community they do this because they can't too much. No it sounds contradictory hundred victory but hunters love animals hunters are the ones that are giving so much back to preserving these wild species talk about conservation Everybody thinks that the easiest part is pulling the trigger and it's not that's the hardest part but you gain so much respect and so much appreciation Jason for animal. Wow that's one hell of a way to show you appreciation and respect mention if your boss called. UNC's office was Johnny. I want to let you know how much I appreciate and respect your hard work work and that's why it's my privilege and by the way did you notice how that other woman arranged lions like. Did you see that I don't I don't care if you hunt or not that that's just creepy look at that. It looks like she shot the lions and they make it look like they're about to have sex and then make that deer. Dear look like it's watching now. Another argument trophy hunters us is that they actually getting rid of the slower weaker animals who are holding the rest of the herd but that might not be the full story trophy the hunters kill some of the biggest most magnificent animals which is bad for the health of the species because genes may no longer be passed on to future generations but hitting those got out of the gene pool it weakens the genes of the entire population over the last thirty years. The average size of a male lion has dropped specifically because of trophy hunting. That's right despite what they say. Trophy hunters actually liked to talk the strongest specimens which I don't support but honestly I mean I understand stand. It's called trophy hunting for a reason you want to look like you battled an Alpha male to the death like you snuck into its nursing home and then smothered that one of the lines with the pillow just like go to sleep scar go to sleep actually if you think about it. This is the one time in the Animal Kingdom with it pays to be out of shape like. I wonder if there's one lion who's just like you who's laughing now. No one asks me the prompt but at least I'm not in the picture with done junior and one of the main arguments one of the main arguments trophy hunters give is that their hobby helps local villages but upon closer inspection. That's not necessarily true. Critics questioned whether countries that promote trophy hunts manage that money properly 2013 report report found that just three percent of hunting revenue ends up in local communities in Zimbabwe corruption and bloated bureaucracy provide much of the money from helping helping those in need much money as the community gate at the moment nothing absolutely yeah she the truth is unfortunately the money money from these hunts doesn't go to these communities often times it stays up top with the people who run the trophy hunting game to be honest. Most of these claims. Don't add up for me you you know because another thing hunters love to say is it's not just the money that we say that they're hunting provides meat for the local villages because apparently before the white hunters came came. All Africans could do was just look at the animals Africans are just like Oh look at the meat inside that buffalo finally there was a way to get inside the Ah I guess we'll just have to wait for the watchman to show up one day I so that's trophy hunting in a nutshell and as weak as the arguments for him. There will always be people who are convinced that it's actually a good thing which made us think if it's working so well for Africa. Maybe it's only fair that we let America enjoy some of those benefits for the past few decades you have come to Africa to shoot animals. That was oh dude to help us and we are so grateful we want to return you see all of these stray dogs and cats across your country. I'm going to care that as part of a new program rich Africans will pay two hundred three dogs and cats in America and for every dog Ugh we shoot a portion of the profits will go to American communities up to three percent. What you're thinking what Pitts I'm going to kill them to yes? It's an reach old age will also be hunted by rich Africans nomo watching fluff or struggle to Glenmede stance instead Brussels and not in Nigerian spam cake after shoot the dog we will donate nate caucus so that no more American children go without school lunch if they would leave. Oh what a cute dog you get ahead stacks. I'm going to kill it. You're welcome America Roy Judea. We'll be right back.
"brad smith" Discussed on Recode Decode
"For free on apple a podcast or your favorite podcast. We're here with Brad Smith. He's the president of Microsoft is also a big thinker on <hes> <hes> regulatory and other public policy issues for the tech industry. His new book is called tools and weapons the promise and peril of a digital age you co wrote it with Carol and Brown. Let's move onto social media and protections of democracy. They all sort of fall into the same thing obviously the big the big bit of information has been about what social media does one disinformation too edgy action three fake news and things like that. They're all sort of wrapped up into one an unpleasant pile of crap so that's how I put it in real legal point of view. How do you look at what's going to happen in this area because there we just did a big along thing on section two thirty and protections and that's probably not going to this is to gives immunity brought immunity to lots of publishers talk a little bit about where we are right? Now I think twenty nine thousand nine has been an inflection point year for this issue as you point out section in two thirty was created in the nineteen nineties. The idea was to give broad immunity to interactive computer services. The notion was the Internet was young needed yeah exactly and what we've seen in two thousand nineteen is two factors call or forces really okay come together. One is concerned about nation state disinformation campaigns principally Russian campaigns now well-documented starting in twenty twenty sixteen in the United States but then we saw a second development emerges well it was the Christchurch terrorist attack and the use of in that case a terrorist use social media and the Internet is a stage and these are two very different things but they've reinforced concerns among governments to impose more responsibilities on tech companies and I should hasten to add it's easy the thing about Youtube and facebook and twitter but a company like Microsoft has linked in we have services like xbox live. This is broader in yeah so we more minor clearly. I don't think a terrorist is going to be doing a linked in broadcasts for some reason we would clearly hope not no but what we saw on this is the really interesting and important point is all of a sudden things changed. The Christchurch attack was on March fifteenth to send into our during the Prime Minister of New Zealand within ten days said we need tech companies to take a different approach within three weeks after that the Australian government mm it passed a new law that imposes criminal penalties not just fine but prison sentences on tech executives if they don't expeditiously Qadissiya slowly remove violent terrorist or extremist content two weeks after that we saw the British government introducing new proposal Al-Sulh we've seen the French and German governments use this as an opportunity to advance their proposals as well. If you almost envision the map of the world it's easy in the United States to think that the United States itself is the center of the world we have this statute. It hasn't changed yet yeah. It hasn't changed yet but if you envision the world that starts with New Zealand to Australia up to the United Kingdom France and Germany you you fill in Canada where Prime Minister Trudeau has raised more issues I would say the law is changing very quickly and even if section section two thirty itself does not change all of us in the tech sector are going to need to because of these other countries. I actually believe that we're seeing seeing a wave and the wave is going to come back to the shores of the United States we actually probably will see some change in this country as well but the US go away with around sex trafficking but it still hasn't had a full frontal attack. I mean Josh Holly is the first one that's but that's over conservative speech to he. It's the US will be a late mover not a first mover which is actually I think unfortunate because it means that people in the US government are less influential in the global conversation..

"The thing about the boeing issues today the flying public needs rules that give it confidence in the safety of airplanes and at the end of the day showed the companies that make the aircraft and you make the point people might say well tech is too complicated for congress or legislators to understand but with the airplane example. No one would ever say that about the f._a._a. At least no one who wanted to fly safely exactly. I think that is such an interesting comparison. That's why we talk about it. People all the time in the tech sector say oh. You can't possibly have regulation. This technology is too complicated and we point out well. What's sitting airplane these days. It's sort of a computer with wings and there are real regulatory issues but nobody says oh. It's too complicated aided. Let's just abolish the f._a._a. And hope that the aircraft makers do their best similarly think about an automobile we point out in the book we tell tell the story of how by the year twenty thirty an automobile will consist fully half in terms of value of computers and data and the like. That's a computer with wheels. Nobody says oh now. Let's no longer regulate auto safety because it's got a lot of computers inside. I would argued that if governments can figure out how to regulate a computer with wheels and address a computer with wings insurance can also do a good job of addressing a computer that sits still and sits in a data center. If you were to give two or three concrete rules regulations that would get folks on the the right path. What would they be. Well you see it in the topics that we cover you in part. We think there's just as urgent need to press forward in the cybersecurity the area that has already led to more efforts by companies and governments to work together but we have a lot more to do to strengthen cybersecurity protection detection. The next is privacy and yeah. We're clear advocates including in the.

"Quote, this is a big problem. According to Microsoft, president Brad Smith and chief financial officer any hood, they wrote in a blog on Wednesday. Here's the quote. And it's a problem that is continuing to get worse. It requires a multi-faceted sustained effort by the entire region to solve and Microsoft were committed to doing our part to help risk to kick start. I should say new solutions to this crisis. The homelessness problem in Seattle's awful. I mean, it's just you know, you see the pictures out of LA, you see the pictures out of San Francisco, and and in in the Sacramento region were very familiar with it. It's not getting better. It's getting worse is this a good is this a good step? Should we have apple and Google and Facebook in let's go right on down the line in Silicon Valley. These companies that have benefited enormously. On an economic scale. Should they be contributing some of that private money to this very public problem? Or is that not their job? Do they already pay enough in taxes? I just found that to be interesting Microsoft five hundred million dollars. To try to alleviate the homeless problem in the Seattle region. Nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty one eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty is the phone number here at KFI PK want to resume because we have a couple of sound clips here to pick up on what we talked about before we headed into the break on this back and forth. Between house speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Trump last week it dominated the new cycle all week long. And it was almost every other day. And if there wasn't something publicly like a sound bite. There was definitely a tweet. But it's not as though there was any rest for any of us on this story. So Senator rand Paul was asked about this. And he's an interesting character. He's a Republican from Kentucky. But this is a man who marches to the his own beat. I mean, he's he's been critical of President Trump. He's clearly been critical of Democrats, and there are certain issues that he has a real hard time with at the White House. He has heart very difficult time with a lot of the language that President Trump uses and he's not afraid to say that he's not a guy who was afraid to speak his mind now for some. He's a little too out there. But nonetheless, you know, that when you hear a sound bite from rand Paul. The guy means he's not just giving you a line because these are the talking points that he heard from some caucus member. This is him speaking. This is Senator rand Paul. Republican Kentucky you said he supports Trump postponing Pelosi trip this past week. Well, do think it's important that we try to open the government. And the only way I see a way forward is for compromise between speaker Pelosi and the president, and you can't have a lot of compromise. If she's not in town to have conversations the last conversation, they had she said she wasn't going to compromise at all then she was offering zero. And so I really still think the answer is somewhere in the middle. I I think think it's split the difference. Is there any chance that they're going to split the difference? I mean, what do you think nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty one eight hundred eighty three four fifteen thirty. We had a guy called in last night. He says Trump's the one who's going to lose your Trump's gonna lose this battle. Who do you think loses Trumper Pelosi because someone I firmly believe loses big I don't I can't predict which one. But when you see these two in such opposite courts. So it's opposite positions. I want five point seven billion and the other ones saying you're getting zero. And they haven't moved off that dime, except President Trump today did make some concessions is he willing to move. And the Democrats not how do you read it? Because Paul thinks that somehow they should be able to split the difference. I don't know if they can. So Nancy Pelosi has said recently that she believes that the wall is immoral. Recently. She said I'll keep in mind in the past. She has supported funding for a wall. But now, she says, it's immoral. And Senator rand Paul in this next sound clip? Called her out on that. Here's what he had to say about Pelosi calling the wall immoral immoral. Yeah. And I think that's kind of crazy. She's voted for money for walls, many times Democrats last year in the Senate voted for twenty five billion dollars for walls. So I remain one. Who's four wall would not for unlimited funding for wall? So I actually think there should be some compromises on. How much is spent? So that's where we stand. That's where we stand on the standoff. At twenty seven minutes past the hour on this Saturday evening as we head into another week. And it looks like these two are at odds. Despite what we heard from the president today after the speech that he gave and the concessions that he is laid out and Senator Mitch McConnell says it's coming to the Senate floor for a vote this week. Nancy Pelosi says it's dead on arrival when it hits the US house of representatives. So I want to turn our attention now to a story that has had a dramatic impact in California. And too many people who are able to listen to this program. With the campfire in those in Chico in paradise. Who are being directly impacted by all of it. And the news this week on a PG. And it was a big announcement. It was a very significant announcement that they are going to file for chapter eleven bankruptcy. PG's broke. Like, flat broke and they face tens of billions of dollars in lawsuits. And this is a story that goes back many many many years. They had oversight by the PUC by state regulators and something went very very wrong here. We were told as taxpayers ratepayers to PG and he don't worry. It's going to be okay. We're gonna make sure you're safe. We're gonna make sure that they do their job. And now they're investigations at our revealing. These fires may have been caused by down power lines. And they may be could have been voided. And now investors on Wall Street have lost confidence in PG any to the extent that their stock has been tanking. There were reports within the last week and a half to two weeks that it's become so desperate for gene officials that they may sell off their headquarters the building in San Francisco. And it's not gonna stop there. This is the this is the beginning. We are in the third inning of a nine inning game here. And the face of PG. And he as we know it today as I've said before in this program is going to be much much different. At least two three four years certainly by in for years, and maybe much much sooner. Because from a financial standpoint things are very dire. And it raises a lot of questions about PGN. And it raises a lot of questions for those folks who use PGN, Ian, pay their electric bills to PG any and. What is he going to be able to do can they afford to make repairs? What about fire suppression? What about prevention? What about these lines that have been falling? Is there any hope that that can be prevented? Now, do they have the money to even do this stuff? This is a monumental crisis. Forget for governor Gavin Newsom. He's he's got his hands full here. Because this was a an elected issue for a long long time. And now people are paying the price. We have to take a quick break. We're gonna talk a lot about that. On the other side. I'm Sam shame. This.

Smith says the half billion dollar pledge will go toward preservation and construction of forcible and low income housing, especially on the east side.

"brad smith" Discussed on Security Now
"So this was interesting on the sixth of this month. Brad Smith, the president of Microsoft posted another piece on sort of on something he's been thinking about clearly this one was titled facial recognition. It's time for action. But what was interesting was that this as I said was the second of two and we didn't talk about this. When when he brought it up the first time back in the summer, July thirteenth was sort of his foundation laying statement, and that's the one I wanted to focus on because he he's just sort of reiterating that position last week, but on July thirteenth, he said. And this is what I think is interesting. He says some emerging uses are both positive and potentially even profound. Imagine finding a young missing child by recognizing her as she is being walked down the street. Eat and Leo course this connects right into our discussion of cameras for surveillance. You a second even more value. We've got face recognition on them, right? Yeah. He says imagine helping the police to identify a terrorist bent on destruction as he walks into the arena where you're attending a supporting a sporting event. Imagine a spark phone camera and app that tells a person who is blind the name of the individual who just walked into a room to join a meeting, but other potential applications are more sobering. Imagine a government tracking everywhere you walked over the past month without your permission or knowledge imagine a database of everyone who attended a political rally, the constitutes the very essence of free speech.

And according to the latest report in the journal lift is aiming to debut in March or April of next year coming up booking a hotel. Why not try parasailing while you're at it? Travel websites are pushing experience now it's a thing. How airbnb? Expedia looked to make your online travel booking a little easier. More and more booking and hotel companies are trying to sell travelers more online than just a place to stay these web based firms. Also want customers to purchase experiences like sailing, excursions food tours and even aquarium adventures the growing trend seems to be working for all parties involved. Let's talk more about it. With the Wall Street Journal's I shall Muslim who joins us in the podcast studio. Welcome. Thank you. I remember hitting upon this for the podcast when I think it was Airbnb that I started to roll out their experiences seems like the concepts made some traction since then. Yeah. More and more people are turning to online travel companies like expedient provider even Airbnb to book their experiences. I mean, they're looking for unique things to do when they're out of town instead of going to a travel agent they're turning to online like many people have in their phones to find things out. Fun things to do. And the good news for, you know, these big hotel entities is that there's a big pot to dip into right? There's huge potential for money. They could stand to benefit from some extra revenue here as well. Right. I mean, all of these companies are in the travel industry, and they just trying to get a biggest share. I mean at some point you have to figure out like how you can make more money, and that's really what they're doing. So there joining this experiences industry as to make sure that they can make more money in, you know, give back to shareholders really how good are things going are traditional travel agents concern, just yet about this rising digital competition. So whatever untold is that travel agents are really concerned that much obviously they've been affected into pass. But they they feel that they're really more travel advisers now than agents, so they're not just booking and selling you a trip or something to do. But they're really catering to you personally. Is the an experience really driving your tin. So they're trying to offer those services a so way to stand out from OT as that may just give you a listing, but not necessarily put an Tinder together for you. You see the adoption of it clearly more people are utilizing it more entities are utilizing as service. I guess the big selling point though is the ease of use. Right. It's convenient, you know, having everything right on our smartphone. It seems like why wouldn't it all work together? Why wouldn't you just have, you know, book something and then book and experience and have it all in one sort of compartment? I think that's probably what's driven people to this. Right. I mean, that's part of what the these companies that are involved in the top of bookings are trying to do people already book, you know, our place to stay with them. Right. So if they book place to stay, and perhaps they book fly, and perhaps a book a car. Well, they want to find things to do. Right. They want to become essentially a one stop shop for most customers. And so I mean right now. About eighty percent of those type of experiences are offline so they're very small, mama. Pop medium kind of companies that are offering these experiences. So these are online travel agencies and hotels a hoping that they can provide that service directly through online and at the same time have all these experiences listed so that people can book everything through them. And then that way, they get more of a person's a spending dollars right for someone who is maybe trying to get a feel of how this might work and their options out there. Where's a good place to start? What kinds of companies have a good footing with this where it's a little user friendly. If someone's looking to book and experience while they travel what's out there. So I mean, I I love the companies are really moving into this. I mean Expedia has been around and has been doing it for awhile typifies has been doing the same. But now they're offering a way for people to book more directly through them. Also, you have eater dot com. That's another big. One and then booking dot com is known for like booking hotels. But now you can book experiences through them too. And they're expanding more worldwide. So some of those are some of the big like online travel agencies that are really moving into space, obviously hotels, always provided some type of service of experiences usually you had to go to your front desk or something when now you can do it online. You can book dose experience in some cases, like even with Marya. You don't even have to be staying at one of the hotels will be able to book an experience. Right. These are all good things to know. Especially now is a holiday season approaches. People are going to be doing their vacation things. So good to get a little bit more organized with maybe I should think so much.

Crypto rout drags bitcoin toward 14-month low
"A turnaround. He discussed his confidence with Bloomberg's Stephen Engle. Take a listen. Economies work where if there's enough miners going out of business that equilibrium is near. And would you look at how markets overshoot both up and down. You can probably say close to the bottom. So where do you see prices in the short term going? So it's very difficult to tell. Initially. I thought towards the end of the year they were always a run up. You could see that last year. See that. A year ago from a lot of people predicted that it would go back again later this year starting from November and December obviously November came in passing. And it was one of the worst months for bitcoin and December right now, there's nothing new. There's no catalysts that will potentially shoot it up. So I will look at it kind of flat. And then started from new year. That's when I think with a new sentiment and momentum. Okay. What is going to be though, the catalyst in two thousand nineteen because in twenty eighteen you had a number of high profile hacks here in Japan, especially coin check in earlier this year. You had a exposed Ponzi scheme a number of different issues and potentially new regulation coming down the pike. One thing in Japan is the Japanese regulators are starting to open up again. So they're starting to approve new exchanges. They're also going to approve new listing. All of these things will start from the new year. Now would also the FSA recently gave oversight. And regulatory oversight to the operators themselves. Yes. How is that going to change? Yeah. So almost every exchange. Registered in licensed in Japan received an improvement order from governance compliance security customer assets secretary's day, these are all to protect the end retail consumer and all of the exchanges are almost complete with their improvement order. So starting new era is going to be a new beginning. How does it really work with the FAA giving you more regulatory oversight? Does that kind of close the door a new entrance though? Yes. And no. So I. A lot of the exchanges. The people who start for the garage or a startup. That's very difficult to do. Now. New entrance is extremely difficult at the same time you need to keep up with what's happening. Global and innovation is key. Especially in this industry is started from cryptocurrencies it went to ICAO's. And now it's going to security token offerings like STO's all of these things. Innovation is an evolution died. You need to continue on and you need to have that. Right. Balance isn't the Versi as well. Looking at regulation on security, tokens, exactly. So the FCC Japan was the first global economic powerhouse to regulate cryptocurrency. Now, they're looking into security token offerings, and they will probably be the first nation to specifically look at security token offerings and put legislation in particular trends, are you looking at from your clients and your customers on your exchange liquid. Are you seeing more increase in institutional participation or retail, and what side shot to that question would be the implementation of high frequency trading? What impact is that having so liquid? We're open to casual traders too, sophisticated institutional investors as well, but our sweet spot are these professional traders, and these are all high frequency traders as in any any financial product from equities fixed income. The global trend is to accommodate these high frequency traders. And obviously we provide full API's for that.
