Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections
"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from. What you go Thank you for your time. It's always nice talking to and. Until next up. On.

"Where we are now remember. Remember. Snap to everyone remembers snapchat. INSTAGRAM stories. This all started the exact same way. Oh, this is a blatant rip off of snapchat and then snapped did it's awfully Herb did instagram huge favor and just completely ruined its own APP and then instagram stories. Are Way better now, but it's kind of the same. facebook slash instagram saw a competitor. Knew, they could do just as good. Have a great infrastructure have obviously enough money to throw into all of this and how's IT GONNA say made a competitor I wonder how early facebook tried to buy Tiktok 'cause I almost I almost one I almost think it's guaranteed facebook thought about that. That's. Kind of interesting though because Tick Tock. bought. Musically, which really started the whole thing like the basis of Tiktok is basically musically, which is now I think musically was way more used by very young people I. Know We all love to say Tiktok as only young people but like it's not anymore, it's passed that I've loved Tiktok I wou I have not made one. With the Yeah I, don't think I ever will make one. Quarantine helps a lot. Just let me say that there's not a lot of stuff to do during quarantine and there are days where I will just sit on it is. One of the best things about tiktok is the algorithm that gets to know you yet for a tee quickly and pretty well. So might Tiktok feed when I scroll through mine will look different from you when use growth years mine at this point is a lot of dogs and a lot of sports videos but there's a lot of dogs and my take talk and it's because they know I why find a really funny and I'm sure you're similar is like I don't really follow anybody and I, don't I only. Like content that I want to save in show like Clare later so it doesn't know a lot about me because I'm not on all the time. So if I watched one video to completion, whatever that video is about going to get twenty more videos that are just like that because even if you skip one, it's like all right that one wasn't good and if you watch one to completion and maybe watch it twice it loops again, talks like I know what you like I know what you want. So I sorta. There's two big reasons as to why it's so easy to. You can say you hate Tiktok but if you open it, you're going to spend time on and to me there's two reasons. Video showed. So short your attention span needed as basically nothing. So. Easy to just. If. If you're only seeing one good video out of ten, that's still only taking a minute of your time to find something that you found funny because you can just swipe through things so easy and then the worst slash best idea ever is at least on Android swiping back or pressing the back button on whatever you are doesn't exit the APP. It just brings up a new video and says, are you sure you want exit and then disappears that and all of a sudden you're watching a new video and that is just Is Literally means every time you try and exit the APP you're getting sucked one more and it is one more genius and yet. Diabolical. So so rule so so real is okay. Yeah. So if you're if your facebook or instagram right and you see this coming up and you can't buy them for whatever legal or whatever reason, you can't buy them. So you just you're GONNA do the instagram flash facebook thing and try to just build as much of that into Europe as he can. I think the best and worst things you can do here's the best thing you can do is support creators and make a bunch of awesome creator focus features we mentioned briefly in our conversation with Chris, that igt is experimenting with ads. Now, I got that on my instagram I can add built in. That's one great place to start exploration. The instagram explore page is a place a lot of people hang out and find new content new people to follow. That's a great thing to do. So that's a that's a good stuff they can do. The. Bad thing I think is this will never be its own APP igt. I thought really interestingly at one point had its own APP and I think it's really important mentally for people that tiktok is its own. APP against. That, you go to just waste time and leave basically and I think the fact that this is built into instagram is its best and worst feature because now inside of Instagram you have stories, you have the fee, you have videos in the feud explore, you have id TV, the people tagging people you have notifications, you have comments and also reels are in there if you can find them. And I think mentally is different for people no matter how good it is I think that's GonNa hold back a little bit even if they do have those creator features and and things that can make it better than Tiktok Sense. It has the benefit of being like just one step closer to the Creator that you love because Instagram, we all know is like one of the biggest social media platforms out there right now and every creator no matter what they're creating on has an instagram and is using it to share with our audience. So like being one step closer, there's Times you see Tiktok I only ever see these people can fifteen second clips. I. Never get to see just kind of like an almost always produced clips or like very specific reasons for the tick tock whereas instagram stories, which is kind of like a little behind the scenes you get pictures which could be thought out or could be very like. On a whim posts. So like being a little closer to that is really neat instead of having to be like here's someone like on Tiktok let me go find their instagram freight but like you said, if I'm going onto Tiktok, I'm like almost preparing for like I know I'm just going to spend the next hour. Sitting down not knowing what time it is anymore because. You. All the time. So let me ask you. Let me ask you something to to maybe compare it to streamers. So let's say Tiktok is twitch. Yeah, and Instagram is YouTube. Where like Youtube has been around forever it's got established creator tools and TIKTOK being. To like they have their their ninjas in their shroud, they have their big names what can youtube do so I guess the question is what can tiktok due to bring the Charlie demilio the Addison raise the I'm trying to think another take tucker it's really hard To to bring those big names to instagram and reels, and by the way, some of these people are already really big on instagram because they know that they have to have other places and they do that smartly and they have instagram presences. But how do they bring the creators on Tiktok I think the hardest thing about that and it speaks really true also to twitch and Youtube is when you build when your audience is built on that original platform, bringing them to another platform is so hard I think Youtube 's biggest problem with live streaming. Isn't that there?.

"Each country adopted own unique flavor of how culture shows up in a performance of short form video in that country in Brazil like I said. full of like music dance and and. that sort of life and. You know. When we see the demand that's happening just based on what people what creators are posting. I said so much short fill much of the video being posted a short form we just want to unlock it. And like I said, we'll wait and see what happens next. We'll see how people use it. We'll see what they want, and then we'll just have a team is dedicated to making their product work. Makes Sense. All right. I got a couple. I got like a last avenue idea for okay. Had A singly wrap it up. So let's do I'm gonNA float some video ideas I have at you, and then you tell me which instagram video feature makes the most sense to post it. So it could be. It could be a, it could be a story, right? It could be in feed video they could be. or it could be real. Okay I I have Let's say I have a fifteen second review of like a phone case. I. Don't need to put a whole youtube video and I just got a new case. It's quick I'm showing you the front the back what it's made of whereas Zakho? Real Short. Even if it's it could be the thing about episodic stuff i. don't I don't find. It always has to be longer feel like I've done some episodic stuff that can be short on TV it could live there too. I think you could be right but I think. What I'm trying to at least my intuition is we have a new format here. Let's let's play with that. Let's try it out. Let's see. Works at on the platform side, we're going to be committed to understanding how that's happening and supporting the creators who are doing things and. You're somebody who could put put things in a lot of places. You know get get a great response and I think you know as long as it's short. I think real is is a is a great place to start trying out. Your ideas. Okay. so how `bout I have a like a five second video and it's just it's like a trick shot where like I throw usb drive across the whole studio, an lands perfectly in the side of the laptop one in a million shot. Will if you hit it, you're going to want that fails to. Really I would want that on the feed right? That's the main feed. That's gotTa sure. So your followers are going to see it and feed. Okay right. the the main feed is just GONNA be still regular instagram video. You'll have to swipe over to the real tap. No know if I'm falling so reels in explore will be a place. I can find folks not connected to once I connect to you I'll see my feet. Okay. So you don't have to make a decision about feed versus reels for your followers of it is the place you're GonNa go see everyone you're connected to whatever the format, right right and feels about sort of introducing you. It's kind of like a stage introducing you to a broader group on top of explore and that's why I'm trying to. You know encourage folks like you to try it out and then see got a broader audience explorer, and then your audience who's fallen, you will continue to see at seed. Got It. All right, I have a I have another super long live on boxing. Of a piece of tech and I open it, and it's broken and I can't believe it. But it took me twenty five minutes to open it and I was so excited and now it's a have this moment on video. I mean it's alive on boxing you WANNA use live. And I mean, that's my gut and I think you have a followership and part of the if you don't know what's about to happen that's the key thing. Right? It's not a script. US True I think you WanNa to us live for that, and we're seeing across facebook and instagram. We're seeing eight hundred million people a day. Participating in live especially after Cova. were seeing live is so much more important. He lives. You know I'm watching DJ jazzy. Jeff. Regular. You've grew up with him. I certainly did you know he's like he's out there. He understands where we're at and he's out there doing shows. You're seeing the whole music community embrace that lives format I. Think for something like alive on boxing. We're GONNA WANNA do it with you and live will be. Your go to. It's a good answer. All right last one, eight, second video I'm lip synching to a daft punk song while holding a piece of tech. Probably reels. Hey, you know. So much of the inspiration here is the is the music. And especially, in that format, it's like our version of MTV. You know with MTV people. Our. Age. Our version of that everybody gets to do it, and like we're all celebrating in some ways, some of the same songs that are breaking at the same time you asked me a while go what's unique I mean we have a huge catalog of music. Most of US music you can name it's over ten million songs. And so we're excited about broadening. Whatever? Your whatever your taste were excited about broadening it out to the folks can be lip synching to the music they love and not just a more limited catalog. Awesome. Well, I. Feel like I understand real is a better and I'm looking forward to using it when it launches. So Chris Thank you for breaking it down for in explaining and I appreciate the time. Yeah, thanks Marquez. Appreciate it. Awesome. Where a few days past that now real officially launched we were actually just kind of scrolling through it on Marquez's phone to to see what it looks like and the. So, what do you think so far? Well, it's public. So if you WANNA go open instagram in and if you swipe over two stories and try to make a real, you can see the creation you I and if you WANNA go to I'll give you an example if you're gonNA do perfects instagram and swipe over twice that's what it looks like on the profile and everything about it and I mean everything that I can think of looks exactly like Tiktok. So. And we knew this is why we talked about this. So the point is obviously tiktok is being very successful. So you're naturally going to have competitors rise up to it, but also now all this looming potential, maybe being banned in the US or losing a big chunk of its US market is gonNA mean someone's GonNa fill up a fill in where they left off. So I think it's super interesting because. It kind of reminds me of. Where we are now remember. Remember. Snap to everyone remembers snapchat. INSTAGRAM stories. This.

"Hi everyone welcome to this week's special episode of sixteen minutes on the news, our show where we cover the headlines from our vantage point in tech, and covered tech trends, offering analysis frameworks, explainers and more I'm sewn. All your host and today's episode is special, not just because at three times sixteen minutes long, but this is our very first time on the show now thirty two episodes in bringing on a special outside guest. Our topic is section two thirty of the Communications Decency Act, which makes sure. Sure that interactive websites are not liable for their users content as their distributors, not producers of content, and so we also cover the recent news around twitter and the president's tweets, and the subsequent Executive Order Unquote Preventing Online censorship all from this week, which is also all bang out against the broader, more profound cultural context of George Floyd. Minnesota and way beyond and this episode we do a deeper dive on the technology and Policy Aspects of platforms and content moderation, including an explainer on the evolution. Evolution of section, two thirty, and all the key nuances of the debates around it and content moderation to understand, my special guest is Mike Mas- nick, founder and editor in chief of tech dirt, which is a leading tech news and analysis website and my longtime go to source for these topics he also by the way, recently launched new section, dedicated to tech and covid coverage as well as a new form with different voices, called the greenhouse, which focuses on tricky tech topics and lots of the. The trade offs involved like privacy and so on you can find both of those at Tech. DIRT DOT COM, so that's the INTRO and why? This is a special three x episode of sixteen minutes. Let me now kick things off by asking Mike. Since the premise of the shows, the tease apart. What's hype? What's real and to break down and explain what section to thirty does and doesn't say especially since the Broader Communications Decency Act Mike has been around since one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety six. The laws actually very short and very simple and very straightforward, and I should note that the Communications Decency Act itself did have. Things that I did, but all of that was determined to be unconstitutional. So the only thing that survives is section two thirty. There was a big lawsuit ACLU versus Reno in the late nineties, and that throughout most of the communications, Decency Act is unconstitutional. The thing that remained was to thirty so what section to thirty does it really does two things, and they're somewhat related, and they're both incredibly important to the functioning of the modern Internet the first thing that it does is it puts the liability on the person actually violating the law, so if someone goes onto. Onto a website and says something that is defamatory or otherwise violates the law, the liability for that action belongs on the person who is speaking and not the platform or site that is hosting that content. The second thing that it does is that it says if a website chooses to moderate its content or anything that is put on the site. Then it is not liable for those moderation choices I'm so glad you're bringing that up because this is the number one thing I wanted to start with which is the flip side of it, not just the protection. Protection, but the fact that they can moderate whatever they want, so can you actually break down Mike? What does that mean so where it came from? Which I think is important is to give sort of the history very quickly is that there were series of lawsuits in the early nineties that tried to hold Internet services that had moderated some content, and the were defamation cases effectively brought up the most famous one is stratton oakmont versus prodigy, and as a little fun aside. Stratton oakmont was a financial firm that was immortalized in the movie The wolf of Wall. Wall Street, that's a fun fact. Yes, and Stratton. OAKMONT got upset. Because people in prodigies message boards were accusing the company of being up to no good, and so they sued prodigy, and a court said that prodigy was liable for the libellous statements, because prodigy positioned itself as a family friendly service that would moderate content, and because it moderated some content to try and take down cursing or porn anything that it felt was inappropriate that anything it left up according to the judge, it was now liable for as if it had written that content itself and that. FREAKED OUT! People in Congress namely the time to members of the House Chris Cox. A Republican and Ron Wyden a Democrat, and they put together section to thirty to say wait, that's crazy. If a website wants to moderate content to create for example, a family friendly environment, it shouldn't get sued for the content that chose not to take down. And so that section of CBA two-thirty is designed to make sure that any website can moderate content how it sees fit in good faith to present the content in a way that meets with the goals of the service

"Forty monument, circle pleasure. Be back in the studio. Although last week. As you know, if you were listening to show, we did the show live from the Indiana convention center during the annual meeting held here in Indianapolis over a long weekend last weekend. I got a touch it's kind of nice as much fun as the annual meeting was I had several people use exactly the same metaphor to me. I had several people walk up and say man guy for you. This has to be like the Super Bowl and Disneyland all wrapped up into one. That's that's a pretty good description because that's pretty much what it felt like as much fun as that was. It was hectic, I gotta tell you. I log some miles getting around the convention center and back and forth to Lucas oil stadium. And then go into some of the other buildings downtown clothing, the Marriott for the NRA eilly dinner. That was a lot going on. I shot the sporting clay tournament Wednesday afternoon came down for various media events on Thursday in the actual meeting itself was Friday Saturday and Sunday, we had eighty one thousand two hundred eighty three in RA members attend the annual meeting that's the official headcount from an IRA, and that's based on actual credentials issued to our members me this works is it's free to NRA members show up show your card. They check the current member. They'd give you your credentials or you could Preregister you could give him your NRA number same thing, and they would mail you your credentials. So you didn't have to stand in line down there that once you're a member you're good to go. No further charge for the annual meeting itself. Now, they were events here downtown that were paid a vent that was an Alan Jackson concert. There was what they called the NRA leadership conference, and that was on Friday, and that it was pretty much an all day event and highlight the highlighted speakers clearly were vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump the whole lot of other speakers, you had Chris Cox, and Wayne LaPierre from NRA you had our own governor Eric Holcomb was actually the last beaker which you had Senator Todd young Candice Owens had not hurt. Seeing her not seen her or. Heard her speak in person. And she was wonderful. I thought she did a fabulous job and several others. And there was a lot going on while the annual meeting was still going on over at the convention center as well. So anyway, it was a it was a fun albeit hectic weekend, and for the most part, and I'll get into a little bit. Of how we as an RA members. And how the NRA itself how we all showed. Our asshole bid over the course of the weekend. But notwithstanding some negative developments and things that are going to have to be dealt with clearly are going to have to be dealt with by RA notwithstanding. Some of the internal squabbles. Going on little bit of a power struggle clearly going on at the very head of the NRA some things absolutely have to be dealt with when you talk about the membership. And you talk about what happened here at the annual meeting. You talked about what those eighty one thousand two hundred and eighty three people had to do what they actually did. And how they interacted and how they and how they interacted with the city not just with each other in the convention center. Here you had over eighty one thousand gun owners. In downtown Indianapolis altogether at the same time that's over a three day weekend. Now lot of us. I was there. In the convention center. Four straight days, the actual meeting itself ran three straight days. So how many of those folks were there every day? How many just came in for one day? I couldn't tell you. But over the course with three day weekend, we had eighty thousand plus gun owners, and I can't tell you how many of us were carrying a gun at the time. For instance, with the rules were over the course of the annual meeting is that the NRA came out and said publicly look for the NRA meeting itself for what goes on to the convention center were simply going to adhere Indiana law. Indiana law says it's legal for you to be carrying a gun. Then carry your gun. Weapon impose any different requirements on you. Then the state of Indiana does. I like that. That's what a lot of businesses say, by the way. Not all we're talking about businesses more. We're talking a little about the absolutely miserable failure. Of moms demand action to try to put gun owners in jail. For trespassing of all things I'll get into that here. The later in the show and how they absolutely fell flat on their face in the temp to accomplish that and how the vast majority in fact, by all accounts, all Indiana businesses downtown completely thumb their nose or perhaps directly gave the finger to moms demand action and what they tried to accomplish over the course of the weekend. So there's a lot to get into including not only how those eighty thousand plus members interacted with each other. But how the interacted with our city. This is not news. You know, we had the annual meeting here in two thousand fourteen when they were here five years ago. What we saw here this year two thousand nineteen was pretty much identical numbers were a little larger this time. Even though we had some fairly crummy weather for the first day and a half, certainly mostly two days of. The three day meeting, but numbers were up. The event was awesome. But what we saw in terms of. The interaction between eighty thousand gun owners in the city of Indianapolis was what we saw in two thousand fourteen. That's what we saw. In the other cities with the NRA annual meeting has been in the interim. I mean, we've been the Nashville Louisville Atlanta Dallas of those four I went to three of them. I didn't make Dallas. And we saw the same thing there. What do I mean by that you want you saw you saw? NRA member. In a very confined place. I mean, we're talking basically about the mile square downtown. And then within the actual convention center itself. We're talking about fifteen acres. The NRA pitch. This event is fifteen acres of guns and gear. But within fifteen acres got eighty thousand now at once that's over a three day weekend. So let's be fair. Eighty thousand gun owners, not worthy all carrying guns. Couldn't tell you. I'm sure they all weren't. What percentage were I don't know. I did. I'm carrying concealed. Nobody knows whether I'm carrying a gun or not. And I think the majority are members carry like I carried where. They're not gonna tell you. They're going to advertise. Others. I saw people open carrying. Absolutely I did. And God bless him. It's legal in Indiana. And Ari said it's legal in Indiana. You can do it. Now. There was a restriction on that. Which was while the president and vice president were in town. The secret service was in charge of Lucas oil stadium. Then the secret service at their own policy. The NRA. Secret service and secret service said well, while we've got the president here in the vice president you can't carry a gun in Lucas oil stadium. This is Friday during that with the called the leadership conference. Okay. I don't think there's anything hypocritical about the secret service coming in and doing his job to protect the leader of the free world and the second most powerful person in the free world, the vice president of the United States by declaring their own policies, especially when we know there are a number of wack jobs out there who would really love for them not to be around anymore. And by the way, the. Leadership conference was opened anybody who bought a ticket. Go online buy a ticket not very expensive. It was. A little different cost depending on where your sheets were. But there are only like three different price levels. So you want to go be right up front being close to the president. You could do. So so do I blame the secret service for imposing do. I think that's an infringement on my second amendment rights, while there's a logical argument to be made that anytime you tell me I can't carry a gun and went on the law abiding citizen that infringes my right that bumps up against the secret service doing his job. Protect the leader of the free world. I'm not going to get too out of shape about that. But how do we do you know, how how did those eighty one thousand two hundred eighty three I members bay themselves over three day weekend. That's where you get into her and just a bed right now. We're taking a break. Hey, did you go to the meeting? What did you like did not like it doesn't have to all be rainbows and unicorns? Here. There's something you saw you didn't like or something about the annual meeting. You think NRA could improve. Let's talk about it. And I'm going to get into the somewhat embarrassing power struggle. We saw within an RA leadership because it does it needs to be talked about. And then a members need to be interactive with the border of directors of NRA and with an array leadership express our opinions, and that starts now far as I'm concerned in terms of my interaction with those folks we're gonna get into all of that. But I'd love to hear from our listeners. If you were there at the meeting, you've got thoughts on the media thought about the thoughts about the media coverage. I wanna talk a lot about that. Especially our local media coverage here in Indy of the NRA annual meeting then get into that too. And hey, the legislative session wrapped up. Last week as well. It's over I've been talking a lot about a whole bunch of bills some more than others. Hey, that's over. It's over except for the governor signing or not signing. What bills are on his desk other than that legislative session for two thousand nineteen done. We'll get into all of that. When we come back, but give us a call two three nine ninety three ninety three. That's three one seven two three nine ninety three ninety three this guy.

The world on fire and stealing basis every time I can it was just the atmosphere that we created that that really really propel The fact that we was consistent in all areas and when you have that, consistency you win ballgames and Whitey let us, to the point where we could we feel that we could, win every. Ball game whenever we stepped on the field. We feel we can win? Every ball game and that was just the energy that was throughout a. Locker rooms dugout and it never let any other team do, it too Hey rock on a field jacket and you would be very humble and very kind of them you know You knew. You could beat him and, they knew it which was even better right I mean you know. I can I can remember, we, were we go into a town was two days before we got there they'd be thinking. About Brock Keep Rockoff base they couldn't get him off me and. I say that because you know when you retired now you like. You hear, like Sutcliffe rig road dot to talkin man. We hate it. You know coming to play. You guys, man because you know you guys go three or four, run they hit the. Ball. Out outfield, and that's, a lot. Of pressure you know knowing, that if you didn't catch it right you was incomplete make a. Lot of pressure you know Hey I'm gonna ask Mike talk. About a, play that we may ever see again when. He had Willie. Combined the steel what about. Nine basis Right yeah it was unbelievable I'll play. By play he's coming Any I, mean what you guys stolen four. Basis Yeah one play Here at, home and I it was going for the record for the rookie record. Needed seventy six it was late in, the ball game and when I'm, teaching base, stealing, I'm saying okay the the catch. Had cliff notes he's given the signs and when he sets up, on the, corners their fastballs if he sets up in the, middle of plate they. All sleep fitted now I knew this particular pitch was going to be. A fastball it normally when there's a. Left handed better I do not, steal third base but he was. A, one looker It. Was Santana's so I enjoyed Davis was one of the probably one to. Catch it I respect that I knew. At that time I had to, really really added tell him that Okay Darnold them also me when you would. Come I know. Brockton He was. Talking he was What I'm going to go on. The first digital second pitch but I, would say, that certain catchers like pusher I read is, first time, I saw him you know I'm in the American League in that come up. To bat and he, speaks he speaks. To me So you heard me Now who was pitching at the, time was Chris carpenter not, the. Chris carpenter, here scarring so I I came. Up with Chris Cox Even the minor league, two years you know so, I. Knew his tendencies Chris carpet out of Georgia Right right okay I do his he. He didn't have a move but he had a flinch it is delivery when he was going home I knew, that I still seconds hurdle to consecutive pitches? On pud? My next time at bat, as, they pause how's your Get hit Got what you, were now but they didn't wanna throw an immigrant if they hit I remember when I stole third. And I I couldn't catch the corner of the base and was. Those bases there there was the one, that was kinda had a, bull nose edge now. You look at the basis here they got a big day high edge crowns walking grab a split off in my, instinct was just to get up and go because I couldn't go. Back and say was there now rundown now the pitcher was supposed to, go home Scott Sanderson came to third base still that left nobody at home plate but the funnest part about that place, that when Willie, surveys and now the arguing, going on and it just took off we went home Next, thing you know For you for you you had, some really good seasons but you play with. Some good players too on some of the teams that you were part of who some. Of the guys. You you look back you came to appreciate more after you had a chance to play with them when I was. Caught up, in ninety Ninety-one Ninety-two Ninety-three we're we're kind of tough years because we you know we had a veteran guys towards it Late make careers but I, think one of the day was would, would which you know what I guess, we Danny, Cox and John tutor and those guys He learned a lot from because they, communicate Bob Tewksbury Even though we weren't win a games Was it was just it was just the fact that the fans were still coming. Out and they were still supporting us In Saint Louis So just make you grind in work, that much. Harder but I but once we turn things around, by ninety five I had opportunity play was much. Better better players younger players with Brian Jordan Labral. Pool halls did he made a trade and you know Ron, Gant came. Over to made the Trey got Mark Maguire so, I had the opportunity to play with a lotta, lotta great talented players and You. Know if they wanted things was registered and, I think one of the things you learn from one another. No matter how many years you plan to basically every every player brings something different To the table but you mentioned three or four guys, that really play the game yeah you know how to play the game Reggie Sanders Let's don't Bernard Gilkey in dinar Gilkey, because when we came up it was myself of an Iraqi and? They, wanted to things was is we push. One another And at that time we had ties deal he was he was a catcher Nate Nate, moving in the first base Third base yeah I but I- guilty and I came up through the minor leagues. And it was it was a good thing for both of us because we. Push one another we. Worked out together we was indicate at, the same time I, knew his wing he. Knew my swing so I think that's kinda thing probably with Vincent. Willie had Ozzie they knew. Each other swing so sometimes you can't see what's going on, in your, swing legit teammate but your team making? It Might it might. Say hey this is what. You're doing different now compare to last week and I guarantee, it does, that go on today's game About what See a little bit more with, this team but I think because there's so many first, of all I think the guys who spend too much time in a cage and I think the guy there's some guys aren't cultural where this is all this is how I do it no matter what you're. Telling, stubborn yeah they don't wanna they don't. Wanna. Change exactly let's take a. Final break we're gonna come back and finish up.
