TikTok star Charli D'Amelio first to hit 100m followers
"A major milestone was reached on tiktok over the weekend. Charlie became the first person to hit one hundred million followers on the platform. Joining us now to talk about it is buzzfeed's own ben. Henry good afternoon doing rate so there are a couple things to unpack here a lot. We obviously wanna talk about charlie. But i this is really major moment for tiktok it really signals. They've transitioned from being used as this teen singing and dancing apt to something else. What's behind the explosion. I think for quarantine in town house a lot to deal with it. I think teams on looking for a way to kind of express And tiktok does that better than any other out because it actually requires you to think about what you're posting and have some kind of thought process behind. It is not posting a pretty picture or anything. so yeah. I think that's probably student at cancer. Got much more time on their hands down. You know the big question. Though within all of this is why charlie herself i mean how did she get so popular. She's really cute. She's a good dancer but there are a lot of better dances at their the platform. So what's driving interest to her right now. I think it's quite a few different things. But i think timing is for key Charlie status like jeans when z nineteen. Ish and i think timing has a lot to do with it. That's roughly around Starts get really big. I via on yeah. I think as people start to join the app. They associate charlie with took tiktok on when they want to people. That's probably one of the first people. I think that following on. I just think it's like a snowball effect of just. She's possibly associate with tiktok. So i i think of other anti i think she has like a purchase I think people can look at her teens and be like she succeeded. She was She's from like a small town. Like i can be too so i think probably is popular appeal but something i always pick. Charlie is that i see a girl of privilege economic privilege. I'm assuming because at how seems to be not something she just moved into. This makes for talk to me about her parents background. She she rich girl is at. What's making her aspirational for young people. Parent's very supportive of Occc and i think it sets The parents were winning to move out so with the family. Just up sticks and guy like it wasn't just like big decision to make. I think she does come from kurdish backgrounds. And i think quite used to have that lifestyle. And it's just been enhanced by charlie and dixies. Success says discourage them so all of this which is also very much of no All of it comes after a very minor scandal from charlie that disastrous dinner with the demilio video after which she was initially losing followers. A lot of people were talking about. How rude she was to both her guest. James charles and her personal chef. But you're saying that behavior was not why her numbers dropped. What was really going on there yet. It was really interesting because public theme. She did seem to be factor. Howard dixie makes. He could read comments to the chef and about the but if the number as dixies at numbers increasing on tiktok she getting two hundred thousand fellows on the day on charlie's numbers across all over social media platforms that just to switzerland. Youtube will also improving. The problem did seem to be the fact that she made a very bad about not reaching one hundred million followers in time so high year anniversary. And i think people kind of took the is grateful and wants his to kind of teacher. Lesson like with once Indisposition we can take it away. And she lost a lot of other very quickly evaluation glossed over five hundred thousand and i think in the end. Total of moody million so i love pettiness and people like girl begins and we can take away. There was like a trend going on where people are videos. They realized that they were potentially one hundred million solo and they were pressing follow and change your hundred million and then unfollowing ended guards to ninety nine point nine huge thing. Oh just get power and they love it. God i love this dockers
"dixie" Discussed on YouTuber News: The Podcast
"Because long story short. They've been feuding anyway. Dixie has now apologized saying quote. I posted a talk with the intention of making a point. That didn't need to be made. I took it down. And i sincerely apologize posting it in the first place. And i'm so thankful for everyone i'm wishing you will a great weekend and thank you again for the love and support so it seems that little stunt from dixie has kind of backfired follows a golden rule that i follow which is never post anything on the internet. While you're angry if you're feeling angry take ten minutes going to have a walk. Maybe stare into a reflecting pool. Maybe get one of those miniature japanese sort of sand things. I don't know what they call it. Because i'm not cultured. Little sand garden with the little miniature rate. Can you can just kind of break and think about the end of time. Just calm yourself down. Because there is one hundred percent hit rate on people posting things on the internet while they're angry and then immediately having to apologize for it because it's always a little bit embarrassing next stop. Speaking of the dimillo's. We've got charlie who has finally hit hundred million followers on tiktok and not without a little bit of struggle at the last minute you see. She recently posted a video and in that video she was sort of jokingly complaining about how she was on only quote unquote only ninety five million and how she really wanted to one hundred million within a year of her getting her first million wishes a year ago and she said he kind of as a joke but she got a lot of backlash from people who said she was ungrateful and treating her followers as just numbers and she actually lost a million followers of the back of that drama. Which sounds like a lot but when you have one hundred billion followers us one hundred of your audience and it seems that drama didn't then her told because she quickly made it to one hundred mil anyway which is astounding. That is so many followers. I mean the only thing that you can compare it to pd pie. Who has one hundred million youtube subscribers. That took him good few years. He joined youtube in twenty ten. Charlie's been on tiktok for little over one year and has one hundred billion dollars now. Obviously it's kind of a different landscape. these days. everyone is much more online. They used to be but still an incredible achievement from charlie and finally lost bit of snap news. Snip snap back dolphin. The endlessly controversial usually somewhat naked creator has been officially banned from youtube. The official message on her channel now reads this account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of youtube policy on nudity or sexual content. That's where you can see. The entire channel has vanished. So i mean. I'm sure she'll be fine. She's on plenty of other platforms. She has a patriot. And i think she's going to survive this one but it's not the first time she's been banned from a platform. She was banned from instagram. As well for basically the same reason and with that. We come to the end of snip snaps. And didn't we slippery snapper..
"dixie" Discussed on Ready to Be Petty
"Sorry that were not enough for you. Charlie was like sorry that your food wasn't good enough. There's some people that can't eat like beat just being roasting them both which you know what i don't wanna say it's deserved because they're young but definitely need to like step off their high horse for a second totally. I think that this is like a good wakeup call. This seems like a softball like canceling that. They can like reel it in and then never do something like this again. And i'm so surprised. Also because i think that they're so far have been so lovely arianna 'grande in an interview made that pointed comment about like all those tiktokers going to saddle ranch or whatever. The popular club is in hollywood. She's like is that necessary in pandemic like. Can't you just wait. It's not that game and then paparazzi asked. I think it was dixie. She was like noah. That's a good fucking point like educated response. I think it's a bit hypocritical because dixie. Yes she agrees like her boyfriend's going there with all his friends every week holy totally. It's like she was still out when she was asked. That question. other place that you guys go like every other day. And it's all talkers in all youtubers. Like one hundred percent if you're going to be that way yet but just accept it like own it. I think that's the worst part. Is i fucking hate when someone will like tweet out like stay home where mask and like the next night. They're like at a bar. Yeah like now or less wearing ask so. It's so tough to like. Listen to but. I was so surprised. I'm surprised by this news. Because i thought that they just have responded till like any criticism that they've got so well and they've done such a good job of yeah keeping it like good content I agree. I think that i mean it is it literally is all happening at this moment type of things. That could come out with an apology. At this point. I have no idea. I'm sure we'll see soon. It'll be very interesting to see how they react as a family because people are now like calling their parents Questioning are you guys. Weren't good parenting like all these things. Which again maybe uncalled for. But i think that long term. It'll be good for them totally. I think i don't even realize the platform of ninety nine million followers. I was thinking about that today. I was like that's that's like So close to one hundred one hundred million. i'd andre. i know literally. Like i like canada has thirty. Four million people are thirty. Seven million people like it's just wild thing about like. She has three times. The amount of my country's population like rooming today said that it's one seventh of the world population. Oh my god. Oh my god that's true. It's wild that is so wild. I and for a sixteen year old. That seems like unbearable like in terms of or like unmanageable. I should say yeah but you have people so interesting..

And charlie and dixie shared that they were getting mike death threats which obviously is absolutely unreasonable and not warranted at all like they were being a little bit bratty. It does not mean that they should get any form like online harassment. Just two girls talking. Shit on a podcast. That's that is about. All they should get. And then charlie lost over a million tiktok followers so she was on nine point five million then she went down to ninety eight point five million but has since reached ninety nine million again so all is right in the world anyways.

I will never sing a single note but when it got very good reaction. It was like okay. I can do this. I just needed do it. Yeah i think especially if you haven't seen in a long time that must be so nerve. Wracking dislike releasing song for like eight million people now a like on every. I don't even know but it was terrifying because i don't even sing imprint of my family like sitting in the car but i wouldn't even sing in the shower because someone might hear me and now i'm here and i'm like okay. The is hysterical. When people are your friends now ask you. can you do it or is it just like no no. I don't do it or someone. Like i play songs like that. I'm doing for my really really close friends like to my friends and nuts about it everything else. If like i'm out in place be happy. I'm like oh stop. I like my heart drops. I get so nervous. Even though everyone's already heard it like all my friends like than hearing it with me there do. It's hard to hear the sound of your own voice. Yeah that too. yeah like when. I'm just like editing like these podcasts. Like i don't why am i doing. I don't like the sound of my voice. I don't know how i'm doing this right now. I feel like there's so many parts to music and creating music that i don't even know. Yet even touring. I've never toward before and that's a whole other huge part of it. Are you excited to actually sing. Live in front of people or is that just nerve racking. I don't know if i would get scared about that. I think would have nerves. But it'd be like exciting nerves. Sometimes like the scariest things don't scare me and the little things scare me so i feel like i might be fine. I know exactly what you mean. The singers that i've talked to and they can like do madison square garden. And it's no big deal within like singing for ten people they can't do It's like that weird juxtaposition where it's like ever even know what to do at this point but be happy is out you just released a remix of it With the pandemic and the crazy year we've been having has making music. been your main creative outlet. It's definitely a recording. And all that is probably one of my favorite things to do is kind kinda took a wildfire something that was interested in and not even send social media just like ever. It's like i usually just like okay. Are we done like board this whatever moving on but with music. I just haven't felt that which has been nice. Do you have any other outlets that you use to try and dislike escape getaway. Relax yourself or is that just been music. Even though it is work. I love doing you too. I just think it's so fun because people like my personality. Which i was scared of because i was just kind of. I'm not one of those super league. Here's what we're doing today. Three superfund like i'm not that type of person so the fact that people are okay with my mellow like monotone voice and some my videos. They really like it. And that's nice. So i don't have to put on an act act like i feel. Sometimes you have to do. Yeah i mean. I feel like it's refreshing people because like you've said a lot of youtube it's been like hey guys what's up today. It's like this like over hyped not really yourself but i think the you know like it shows your yourself and also i think social media. It's social media is so crazy. What is it been like to gains such an intense audience and fans who are like you know they're streaming your song. They're buying your merchant. What has that been to all of a sudden. Have all of these people.

WHO's professor of Law and society at Griffith University in Brisbane Australia. He's also adjunct professor of law at Queensland University of Technology and Research Associated University College Under Center for Blockchain Technologies, he who suggests on the Bloomberg professional globalization of law and the technology in law. But come John. Hello. Thank you. Sure. Yeah. So I want to start with one of your recent people, professions and expertise hog machine learning, and blockchain redesigning the landscape of professional knowledge and organization. In invite you say machine learning has entered the world of the professions. The different impacts automation will have huge impacts on the nature of work and society. Engineering architecture and medicine or early and enthusiastic adopters. Other professions especially law at late you say at in some cases with leptons adopters. could you talk about you know sort of the landscape all? Of Law, profession and. They today in terms of opting these technologies. Certainly Louis interesting because it's a very old profession is. Often considered one of the. Original traditional professions along with medicine and the church. And in a sense law has used different kinds of technology might say I mean does it? Based around writing. And then the printing press and So on yet that. It's always being based on a craft. A skill which the individual person is that enables them to do, whatever is quote if you like and. said, there's never been a lot of room for any kind of automation. Certainly, the has been space for using. A people who are not fully qualified as low as about as paralegals, people like that, who will do a lot of repetitive work document checking and things like that and so on. But what will get into now is the situation where automation through machine learning. There's other kinds of artificial intelligence. is able to start constructing documents example contracts. Check dollop a documents for particular clauses and things like that mature they're up to date and this incense is. Replacing now, the kind of work that noise will do. So I think in some ways more more of of the profession of law is gonNA be subject to automation, but distinction I would many because I think it's quite important here is that A lot of what lawyers do. Is actually quite. Active that that that that the drafting contracts overtime or or they're reviewing documents to some sort or another or they're getting through particular. Negotiation. And so you know a lot of it is the same, but they build up the expertise through doing these same kinds of were over and over again and What we're now finding is that instead of having young lawyers coming in and doing what you might call the grunt work of checking documents and going through discovery applications where he goes through the size boxes of evidence to decide. which are the appropriate documents you want the emails, the invoices order, this sort of stuff that is the kind of work which is lending itself to automation. And, and so that his taking away a lot of the work which is used for trading purposes with young lawyers and is just doing it much quicker. will quickly I mean More efficiently in many ways and probably expensive much much expensive a Lotta. This work is being outsourced to you know legal process outsourcing India or Philippines South Africa places like that. So yeah, that's that's right and so in some ways, the group of lawyers who do the work which requires the skill, the judgment. Is Reducing in some ways. That pool is getting smaller. Yeah Yeah it's it's interesting. The the distinction that you make between automation. And in my job and let's call it decision making right which is you know a lot of work in the business side of this. So for example. in the nineties in large pharmaceutical company So you think about you know rnd. People might think it has really complex selection of programs that design of them, portfolio management, risk management, all those decisions. Genuine companies be say well, senior managers with lots of experience and intuition make those decisions really well right and so that's statement would automatically implied that machines can really do much there. But what we find in the mid nineties says that is systematic analysis of data make those decisions. Don't better. Actually, I've Tom to humans humans. Always seem to make decisions. These are typically bonding the decision. So if you go back and look at it, alternative experiment has not been wrong. So we have no date to say it was a good decision at typically. So human scaffold, fifty percents of making good decisions So do you know just throwing a coin or letting monkey make those decisions so? Yup We found that even complex decision making that humans hold. you know close to their you know kind of domain I'm not necessarily. So we have machines That could do that much better than I. Don't know there's an analog of that in in law I I. Think The may be actually I mean Two three years ago the royal. Society in England decided to arrange a working party on machine learning. One of the things that they put together a a roundtable on machine learning professions resolved to talk about that night and I talked about the history of professions in technology and. and. I think one of the peculiar things that came out to in relation to law is that law. Has always been a sort of on its own. If you think about medicine, for example, medicines always had the teacher hospital institution that sort of straddles the academic quilt and the practice walls and brings those people together and as a result. INCORPORATES loss of, scientific, work. Engineering work as well computing work and things like that. And that's been the first teaching hospital king into existence in in the French revolution in Seventeen eighty-nine. A long history of that. If you look at law, there was nothing equivalent to that whatsoever and there is in fact, actually a big gap between what academy does on what the practitioners in your do so that As a result as before law has come to this a quite late but what we are. Finding I think is that Certainly the management consultancy finding is that because of the nature of a lot of what goes on in legal office a remarkable amount of it can be automated. So what we are getting now is companies setting themselves up to do this automated work. So. We have companies which do nothing but contract our instruction formation sort of company. The typical lawyer would would say to a client Do you WANNA contract classes. Yes I want this for this. And loyal galway draft contract back with it, and then in the con- comes back against as I need another contract, you go through the same process. which is good for the lawyer but not necessarily good kind. What we're finding now is the company's not can think of a few of them that will, in fact, go into the company's show order contracts. Let's see the entire. Corpus of contracts you've got there and they will analyze them. And basically say, all right. We can create a new contract in automated way fairly easily it may need some modification according to special circumstances but on the whole, it's fairly standard and and they can do that INNOVA systematic world meaning the contracts are reviewed that checked. If they're going to expire marketing, you want an unable just the system will cope with that if you're. Yeah. So yeah. No No. No so I was just going to say yes. So that the distinction you make, you know in terms education sort of systematic graduate level education that because as you say, it is low in one sense of soft proficient. You say in called professions like made it to text reengineering this team has a strong concern ensuring that expertise applied in the public interest when as low little bit different from from bad and economics in some sense sort of in the same same vein we have now made economics at really odd. of mathematics you know north of analytics there. Whether they are actually useful from policy making perspective is left to debate but at least it has been an attempt to make this make economic video hard. So so I don't know A. Fascination has been in in law I very much that will happen in law. Oh there things are beginning to happen I mean let me just boob. At. One example I learned in that workshop that I mentioned the Royal Society held. With somebody from the engineering profession talking about. The difference in skills between people who above forty I'm below forty he said. If he he was about Forty Years Austin design an aeroplane, takeout pen and paper Pencil, and paper and. I don't know anyone under forty could do that would know how to do that go onto a computer program undecided there. So you can see that the incorporation of technology into the academy through to the actual. Occupation. Than phones and things is is already a standard and they're in law. It isn't law. As you said, it's still very much a soft skill although I will argue that there is a difference between the way nor is viewed in different parts of the world. So in the United States A law is I think more tilted towards the sciences. So low in economics is one of the big things in the. US. So you got a lot of people working in the of lower economics who might go onto antitrust work no competition work and things like that which across a lot of economics, mathematics and Statistics and so on. In, say a Europe Australia and so on. Law is more allied towards the humanities. And the classics. So it doesn't have that kind of scientific underpinning in that way. So anything that's going to change in these parts if you like is going to be something that's going to be imported from outside. And is going to have a very dramatic impact when whether it does An and I think that's yet to happen. I don't think there's been sort of Cambrian explosion. If you like in in law, the will be one I'm sure but but law has an advantage over engineering economics or the other areas you might. That's With the nature of the rule of law and absent justice is since law as a a way of ordering society is absolutely crucial to everything else. Then, Law and lawyers will say will look you know we have a special status here is different amid leave engineer. We certainly want to make sure bridges stay up. We don't want down but we can design different kinds of bridges. We can design different kinds of legal bills, but they're also the fundamental rules If you want to you know if you're an engineering company and you want to build a bridge in a different country, you're going to have to do it on the basis of the legal rules, which will be just vise by the lawyers according to the country's there in so on. So in in that was what? I might put in a special category if you live. Yea. Yea. Let me let me push NBA John. So. The. The conference that you mentioned you know the Internet is under forty and engineers at. So so one could argue you know from an engineering perspective could argue e- It sexually dangerous. To not use machines to build aircraft the goes you know all the technology that cap today actually help us make the trap lot safer. granted. If you sit down with a blank sheet of paper and Pencil, you might get the principal right. But, but the technology has advanced so much that you really have to use. Technology to do so in some sense, engineering is pushed back. that. I argue this myself then they were naive engineering school. I had a V exposed at my daughter bent to school. She used the same physics book. Twenty, five. meter. I argue that that is sort of backward because data speed no need for an engineer to really learn Newtonian physics anymore because it is prescriptive, it's deterministic can make machines, learn it very quickly and so why spend all? Right. So so then you know if you think about the the law field. I wonder if there is a senior argument that is to say Dan and tape really good lawyer casts lot of intuitions dot expedients to crap something Contract or a discourse, but then maybe the machine scan actually do it even better We haven't really tested that hypothesis yet. Right be almost have this idea that humans are always dominant. Or machines but that the not be true as technology lancers. So what do you think about that in the in the? It's a very important point actually because the. American bosses. being modifying its ethical rules recently to say that lawyers have a duty and obligation to keep up to date with technology. So we already know the technology is now a an important part and I have to say when when I say the word technology, I mean this at all kinds of levels from what you can do with Microsoft word for example, it strays plug ins all the way up to artificial intelligence IBM, Watson, or something like that So that if if lawyers become. A. Uses of technology whether this small firms or big firms or what have you a under the Aba now they they actually have an obligation to make sure that they are up to date. They can't just say we didn't know what we were doing. So I think in that respect, there is a there was a move. The other move that is taking place is actually the push from from the clients. Now, this you have to look into ways one is with corporate clients. The corporation seen US lawyers have to use noise if you'd like want their work done. PHILOS- money on Chiba they wanted to more efficiently They don't want the best piece of work every time they want something that works and they want officiant. UTA A and so on. So it was interesting I think a few years ago. The General Counsel Cisco. Actually made a speech. Saying that he expected his. Lawyers Law firms who worked for the company to be reducing their fees year on year. Now, that's the opposite of what lawyers normally do, which is to raise them year on year. So say that that's one push which is. Very profound push now, coming from the client himselves who are using the beginning to use their procurement departments in in the companies and things like that to help purchase legal services the other aspects which is just as important in this is if you look at the role of lawyers and individuals. So if you is what access to to legal services, it's expensive lawyers are not cheap they charge our money We don't know how to judge the quality of their work and so on. because. There was a credence which we just know that So. On this is where technology can begin to step in and provide services which are. Efficient and often quite. what very well for the individual saying that this. Technology can be seen to be improving access to justice a Lotta people. Yeah. Yeah yes. I want to come back to this. John. I think this is a very important point. So bent on put has a lot of uncertainty. Uncertainty maybe not not the right term, but it's called deterministic. It shows beatty ability and so the determination of quality it's not as easy as hard media India nearing or. Right business economics legal all sorts of well foreign that category and the application of technology sort of a different different meaning there but I want to touch on one of the things that you say in the paper, and that is you mentioned this before and that's about training training the next generation. So you savior regulating bodies professions are involved in the collection and reproduction of knowledge intended to be used by the entire body professionals, and so there was an expectation here that you know seeing it professionals. Is Providing the wisdom that knowledge mission to train the next generation now in a technology driven. regime. discuss vacations right. Our expert is going to be a computer engineer in the future. And so so how does that work from from cleaning and knowledge Asian will I think this is This is a crucial issue in it's one which the profession hasn't. Really. Got To grips with yet I think because you think of technology in terms of Predictive analytics a document review and things like this most law schools are not preparing students for this they may be a a a a causal to on some aspect of technology, but it's not something which lawyers themselves are learning. So I think what is going to happen is we're going to find a blending of skills occurring. So law firms will be sense having to bring in a range of technologists who perhaps have. A scales a straddle, both sides of the lines, the lawyers like this too I think I think we're going to find an avangard Who will begin to develop skills that allow them to talk to both sides of the line, the tech people and? Below people if you likes and there will be people who will acquire develop these skills as well but that's that's still some way down the line I didn't think we're anywhere near there yet, and part of the reason for that I think is that you know law is still a very highly regulated profession and and the regulators themselves are in the same situation they are unsure about what is going to happen and they also feel they have an obligation to. Not only ensure that. Customers clients and consumers are protected but in some ways, the profession is protected to if you like so. You know it's it's a it's a fine balancing. There I. Think. It's a fight balancing act and you'd say if the changing changing things. So going back, you know you care as an individual eighteen status of expert. Some form of encapsulation of knowledge and analysis occurs enabling professional experts, derived diagnoses, decisions, and conclusion wrapped late. and you make some distinctions. Type of learning that. Human? Beings. That the distinction between doing drive and become a gift and laster Yes yes. Yes I think that's important. So the the the the principle behind this is that Individuals can acquire a lot of knowledge in in various areas. So as I say learning how to drive a car, you learn how to change gear you though with the speeds. Braking different rates, conditions, and things like that. So. If you WANNA take that further and become a formula one drive or something like that. Then you have to undergo a very different kind of training and that kind of thing becomes a lot more collective rather than individual because you start to you're you're going to be in a group that is gonna be doing a particular kind of our driving. If you like everybody in the group has to understand what each other is doing that group, you can't have people going right a racetrack at two hundred miles an hour or thinking individually feel like they have to have a collective consciousness. About. How to drive in that situation? That's nothing like how? You and I might drive. I'm not saying we bad drivers just saying spreading very different. So I think professional work is not. That different from this in a way. So once you you can go through school and you can do your law degree and you can learn your low. We can learn you engineering's this applies to or professions really. But in order to become a professional in order to become somebody who can operate function within that. Group if you like you then have yourself have to develop collective consciousness and and one way of thinking about it is that we we can kind of tacit knowledge. This assorted knowledge you learn on the job from people, which is not always articulated in a precise formulate kind way but it's something you pick up from the way. Somebody does something you just recognize aw that that's how they've done that might not be. Written down anywhere or anything like that. But you know that's different from now exiting differently from the way that wise doing I think X.'s doing it better I and you and you just, and you can absorb that. That's what I mean by this kind of tacit knowledge and that comes about from the professional context. As how the professional context develops becomes absolutely crucial to how you introduce new ways of doing things new my daddy's new skills new outlooks if you like and I. Think this is where we're on the cost of of this beginning to develop I mean we we know it's got to be done quite how it's going to be done. is yet to be. So. So let me make a statement John and I want I want your reaction to it so eat in hard sciences eight years against again medicine. Expertise has about a consistent happy of remorse. Whereas enor- economics and business in general, let's say expertise is not about the ability to apply rules but to deal with. and at and if that is true, it has lot of implications rate. It has implications as to how we might divide work. Between. And machine in the future. And the skills that universities need to impart on on on new graduates are also quite different. So I always argued in the business. engineering contexts that universities having changed the dog they get mentioned before they're using the same. Using the same. Out Thirty four years without asking the question are those skills relevant, anymore or more importantly watch. Really relevant for a human being in the future rate. do you agree with that that expertise assert more about dealing exceptions apply? Putting it actually. I. I can see the logic behind what you. Saying I think what distinguishes? A good professional whether it's a good engineer good architect or good lawyer or doctor is is somebody who has a certain? This may sound strange but it's the. Imagination. Creativity. about. Kind of flare that allows them to function on the nausea they they've got and developed over the years and the experience. Gathered from Nova pitching what they'd be doing over the years and so on, and it allows them to see around things in ways which they perhaps would. I can give you an example if you like a law. So I'm in in Germany and some other countries. For example, there's a particular way of bundling together mortgage securities I I won't go to detail about this, but this statute that enables you do it. And then you can sell these securities and get money. In certain countries, the UK, the US, and so on. This, NICI. So in a sense to put this kind of a a deal together it. Couldn't be done if you live. So a bank came to one of the large English law firms and said, look we wanted we want to replicate this in in the UK, want to set a market this we're not the statues off there. What can you do and what was interesting was that the law firm then went back to first principles lawyers who were looking at this went back I suppose they looked at some vape basic areas of law matter your trust. And contract from what have you? I'm from that they constructed elite supplement that looked very much like the one in Germany, but without stat sheet and they tested it and it worked. Out To be credibly successful. So much so that the German government started German legal profession started to complain because they said. You can only do this by statute and these we find a way of doing it three. I suppose using law and there it is an they were vowed shops by but that was a particular example if you like of of what you were talking about, they took the exceptions they went back to first principles and said you know or How would we get? This is where we gotta get to, and this is a way right at the beginning what are the steps we need to take and and? And that's what a good loyal will do if you. Right right? Yeah. So that's very important point. So you in your paper dawn as the DREYFUSS and rice note that the proficient performer immersed in the world of skillful activities sees what needs to be done. But decides how to do it. So as we move into a and other technologies, I think it's important point it is. Right from Dad benefactor culture we have been using humans as you mentioned before in lots of with meted activities big not designed for humans I would I would contend enjoy doing things over and over again, and if you had thought of doing that, yeah, because they have to do it for living right and so so we should be moving to word It would where anything that is with pita on delegated to the machine at automation in the bottom of that and Appealed autonation you can have intelligent automation you can have you know reinforcement learning those types of things you have some aspects of intelligence into the into the two. And deploy humans Don't Miss. They're really good at in some case. I'm. So you know we've been studying the green for ages be our no close. It feels to understand mother. Heck it does You know it's not neat learning it. Oh, BBC of. thirty years ago as see that person again, you could see you could you could have a feeling. Then you've seen that before and and what the brain has done actually not only as he that pattern but also age that matter intuitively for thirty years and say, yes, that face I, guess before. and. So there are some superpowers the brain has reaped have been applying the all all. So for a technology might allow. Look I. Think Technology will allow us to incredibly complex things without having to think about too much I. Mean if you look at the way a port functions, for example, any major port these days they've got millions of containers and ships going through them all the time. So there's a lot of paper going through the you those charter parties, bills of lading guarantees. So the lot of legal work that's being done it, it's all quite standard stuff. I mean everybody. KNOWS, what needs to be done and so on. Now, some people are beginning to think while the best way to handle a port if you like I for everybody should know is to put everything that's going on in the poor into a blockchain so that you can see the whole supply chain. You see when something comes in, you can determine when the goods are being offloaded. When they're being shipped, you can stop making the payments as a result of the. Operation of the smart contracts if you like, and the whole thing would be just one quite seamless. In some ways without that much human intervention really just need oversight Some bits of coordination so on. But at the moment is still a a lot of humans are vote in that shipping people, law people, all sorts of things which is. I think insane. That's a waste of resources. We know that there are people who have all kinds of problems that require that creative flair she like as so why waste money on the routine stuff when you could develop skills to the the real need if you like in that way? Yeah Yeah. So I, want that some that bit that John Blockchain, for example, as you mentioned. So so one reason especially in the professions like law and business humans have an advantage justice dimension of trust. and you know at least our generation we don't really. At eighty level, right. So so having that. Human human touch is still extremely important for us. Now, technologies like Blockchain, for example, actually allows that trust to be tensely decoupled, right? Yeah, and I think I think you're right. Look I. Think I mean one of the reasons we make contracts is because We, don't trust each other. So we we devised these documents with all the conditions in them. Something goes wrong. This is what will happen things like that and so on. What are the interesting things? You know people really rely on contracts are met you. You draw up a contract. And the to business people stick him in the drawer I never look at again less something really really fundamental goes wrong but they know sumit doesn't that never look at that again. So you say value of the contract, what did it actually do if you look at some of the Asian countries say like Taiwan or parts of China, you have a assistant coach Guanxi, which is where people developed effective relationships by knowing each other over a period of time around business that allows them to develop trust it. So You know there are different ways of of handling trust, but we we seem to spend a lot of time on trying to minimize something You know which we don't really do a lot of if you like. So I think one of the advantages of of blockchain is that it just it removes a lot of this from from the equation if there's certain things you know that can happen. as a result off if this thing that systems. Lead happened And you know. As, long as you've got oversight and you can see what's going on than. You don't need to be too concerned about it. It will just do what it needs to do in that way and So. Again. That's still very much in the early stages, but we are seeing situations where supply chains A shipping goods from one country to another can actually be done under smart contracts through a blockchain. Technology if you live. That that is now happening I associate goodful dealing with things like gum counterfeiting if you're. Producing. Particular high-quality could site move our phones or particular pharmaceutical products and so on you know it's one way of guaranteeing the quality of the product is you couldn't I say look you can examine the whole supply chain or the data is there. And you know his Eq- code look at it and you get the whole thing going all the way back The. Again, issues around that if you're dealing with the digital. Is Much easier once you start dealing with physical products then you have. A question of how do you get that first initial digitization of the physical if you'd like to goes on so though some people I know here in Australia who? Run A company called Beef Ledger, which is trying to export beef straight beef to China using the blockchain supply chain, which will. Guarantee the security, and the quality of the goods to the Chinese consumer APP because having problems with this before. But I will tell you now do doing something like that does require that the people you are dealing with. You're going to set this up with You have to have a trusting relationship with you before you can set up a technology that will do away with the So we're still in that. That's really early days. I think another a lot of time way to go right Yeah, but the technology works it. Clean potential one could argue contracts exist because they probably known performance if you have a technology that drives that probably the of non-performance zero, then you can actually get rid of for contract. Yeah limit. It is. Not. Goes back to that earlier point I made that. Most most contracts are fairly standard. You know a routine things they're there to. Record a series of transactions payments that have gone on between people without the to do much. If you like you know once you you're you're doing the business, the contract just kind of records that in perpetuity. So the small contract just takes that into a different area and an an actually does the whole implementation and execution without people to be involved in that too much and there's something goes wrong. But if it if it all goes right then back it is done you need to you don't you think about it Right. Yeah. Hasn't been jumping to another are forthcoming people globalization law at. A time of crisis in the? Global Lawyer and so in the say Nikolai Condom Nieve a Russian economists in the nineteen thirties believed the worst economy operates long sixty year cycles Then he called K. Braves. And you safeguarding coronavirus analysis, the fifth psycho young's from nineteen eighty to twenty thirty. It's you save twenty, nineteen forthcoming John You might have. I think so I think say because I, tell you off the what's happening this year I thought my good I couldn't My God. I was just. Owners because you know a contract device these waves up into into what he calls four seasons spring summer or winter at, and we're in the winter off this fifth cycle if you like this is. All the bad stuff happens and he's news war. Famine Disease I think wait a minute that sounds Yes yes. That's exactly right. A. But one of the interesting things about contractors was that you know he he a because he's A. Solid economists are installing a dip executed. By the way you know he he got fed up ninety that was the end of Nikolai unfortunately but he. He said instead of know if you like the ownership of the means of production are being the determinate for changeover from system system, he said it's it's technology and and that the technology will drive you out of the downswing of the last cycle into the upswing of the new cycle, and and the way that works is the win. You're in this kind of winter period because of the kind of economic. Gloom pervades if you like people tend to hold back in subsurface vestment in terms of technological innovation of what have you and so a lot of energy resources, resources, money capital if you like builds up to a second point when people say we're GONNA go for this is this is it? And that's when if you like technology comes to the fall on, really drives it forward. So from that perspective, what he's saying is that you know come right about twenty thirty. If. Things are going slowly now regarding technology they're going to speed up. In. This period and that's when it will. You know really also take take off and people have looked back over our preceding cycles and they've you know it works if you like not just their. Fantasy theory there are also the people who do Cleo dynamics in history these the quantitative historians and they've done a similar kind of analysis of historical periods and said, yeah, you know there are all these citrical. Processes that take place even revolutions occur and big upset occurs and what have you and and. One of their Perspectives which I find quite interesting is that they say one of the reasons for revolutions come about is caused a lease beginning to compete with each other and and an an I look at say trump in in America and I look at the Democrats and I I I would say Modine, India I look she in China and different groups of elites who are engaged really profound struggle for the future of their countries if you live. Out which again is leading to this kind of potential eruption of activity and a new ways of doing things. Yeah. It makes a lot of intuitive sense gone. So one way to think about this also. There are a lot of excesses. So innovating go good their excesses in the system people to believe that invincible they changed assumptions about. because they don't see any. and. Financial markets to right. So these cycles and real real mass that uniquely talking about you can see the. Happening in the financial markets more clearly. But what he's saying is that he happens mortgage and you ask in this paper in two thousand, nineteen for in many ways go. Crystallization off the settling ketone economic forces lost throat ear Kublai doomed as populous. Separates nationalism and lead clients and I think they have that we have probably the answer to that. But you see I think. One of the points I was trying to make an in in this paper walls that Global Law. If you like is is, is the a kind of synthesis off chaos? How do we bring some kind of order to chaos now once you start seeing the undermining? Of his global institutions, you see trump was withdrawn from the W. H. O.. He's he's are criticized NATO he he won't have the do with the International, Criminal Court and so we've got this kind of real life tension now between a an international legal order that's being built up since the Second World War both Ekit economic and legal order is Global And so we can't just a radical globalization I mean even even with covert, we can't eradicate mobilize ation we've got to. Handle covert the Kobe pandemic on a global basis. Otherwise, we'll. We're lost it retreats to a national. Approach is not gonNA. Work? We'll be defeated in that race is going to be global. Might. Be One of my questions in in paper was will who are the people who are going to be doing this? Kind of bringing the the order to chaos if you like and that made argument that it's got to be the global lawyer. And this is a person who not only understand their national legal system but also able to communicate with lawyers and officials. From around the world if you like. To be able to develop a kind of common. Language common discourse that enables them to stop putting these things together are, and it's not just a simple massa of saying mathematically, it works this way or not. It requires the kind of pulling together of people, but it requires that sort of common understanding which. Comes out of what I was saying about this idea of testing knowledge you know as you got this kind of professional consciousness you know how people ought to behave and how they will interact with you, and then that enables you to be out of bizarre to predict how you can do things and so on and so on. That basis I think we can operate kind of global order. It had a a below the institutional level if you're not kind of private. As opposed to the public according and that will put three. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah you know I the limit John I don't know if you think this way I limit one could as. Want to stay need for. Countries what does the need for legal system differentials? We set this up with the premise that it's easier to manage small chunks. one could also argue with Edmund Affect. -nology that you don't need to segment this debate that we have done. which might make these types of issues you know. See where you're coming from and I'm going to say yes or no? Yes, I think the home range of of questions that can be handled by the technology the ones we got pay I don't chain, etc. I don't I didn't see any issues there but there are a lot of decisions that needs to be made a book in terms of putting things together and resolve disputes that can only function at a human level because it's not. These are not decisions that are simple binary decisions. If you'd like, it's yes or no it's it's often a lot more nuance than complex about I mean, one of the resources in the World Kiva Zero System, the world amendment which is being fought over if you like is water, a water is probably one of the most valuable resources anywhere and it's you often find that rivers and things like that sort of flow between countries, they form borders. And and you are you know people if you look at the Nile, ESL start stopping in Sudan throwaway down to the Mediterranean. So he goes to countries all three countries, east European and then into Egypt's and so unwell well, who has the right to put it dime at a particular place and things like that all of that has to be cooled in act. You see a not going to be done at a human level that that's what caused the skills in negotiation judgment interpretation understanding if you like of the other people, no machine can do that I got. Yes before we conclude, I want to touch on one other thing So in the paper, you say as technology and culture intersect more and more. Ethical conundrums will intensify these raising questions about the rights and obligations of robots. And go beyond as moves. Three laws of robotics in two issues of rights of all moon. Algorithm, stem serves. So this is this is an area that be Kevin babies even even really form some notions allowed rights of all modes at rights of a are. Sai, gets more sophisticated. Yes. Yes. I do. I, mean I think this is one of the issues we already know some of the problems with algorithms and and you know can we can be are they transplanted from you see what's going on the ethical issues around the construction and implementation of algorithms and things like that. But I I I think looking into the future we all going to rely on things like robots. And various kinds of machines so much more so that if you look at a country like Japan, which is a a an aging population such that it doesn't have sufficient younger people to look after the people who need looking often. So machines, I'll be part of that, and that means people will stop forming real relationships with machines and and so that's when I would say. Okay. So let's think about how we View a potential rights of machine that we give. We give rise to humans. Yes. We know that we give rights to animals. Now we've also given rights to viz in forest in some countries as well as so machines I think our. Next logical step you know do we do we treat them with respect Let me give you one. Very classic example yet the production of. Robots for sex if you like is a major industry at the moment, some manufacturers say they want to program them say that people can act out rape fantasies will do we want that I? Mean you know should we be at first of all? You know? We should be having people behave in this particular kind of way, but even an uncertain if you do it against another human being, you'll be punished for it and you say we'll a machine is a piece of property you should be you should be doing that but I'm getting to think that maybe a machines should be treated with dignity say that we are treat ourselves with. Dixie. This a kind of reflexive situation here what we? Do to machines we do to each other, and they may again due to US depending on how they evolve and and move forward in that way is a very contentious issue. A lot of people would reject that right out of hand I agree I think we've got to stop thinking about stop dining forward because I. think we're going to at some point again. I. Don't know when. But at some point we will be having to deal with that. It's a it's a very important point. Joan. So if I understand you correctly, you know that the rights to animals the rights to inanimate. INANIMATE things like Lubers The recent those exist is because of its effects on humans and can see video a clear link in the future we would see a very clear link between a algorithms and robots ended affects on human. So this is not me You know each not fantasy in the sense that yeah, robots should have rights, but rather it's a more conceptual question. Any fraud did not have rights each going to cabin negative I I think that's absolutely true. I mean just to highlight that if you like this firm called Boston Dynamics that produces. Robots and they produced these videos of these. Now, these robots are resistant being pushed over and things like that, and it was quite interesting because a lot of people say all you can't treat them in this way. This is awful and so what I mean that that's the answer for more fighting to to the extreme extent. But it I think you know on the basis what you're saying, you know how we Oakland. Hold human beings accountable to each other in an increasingly complex world machines have become part of that. We can't just have them all sitting on the edge as though they're not part of who we are, what we are and how we do things. Right. So. Incursion Johnny fuel sort of look forward five years. At. The intersection of law and technology. But you think people see sort of the biggest. I. Think you'll see it two wins. On the you know for the individual The individual, you're going to see a lot of them just interacting. With artificial Tennessee, say lost questions about what my rights for this how do I deal with a tendency agreement? How do I complain against a producer company or something like that or that's going to be automated? is fairly straightforward to do and and it will only need A. Minimal. Amount of human inside of. An intervention if you like. At the other end at the. In I think we're GONNA see more and more technology coming in because as those basic functions that are. Being, carried out by junior people or or paralegals or things like that are the ones which are going to be increasing, automating creasing. I'm. We will replace the humans and just let machines do that because there's no point in wasting human resources on that whether that means we need fuel or more lawyers That's an open question I think it will that we need different kinds of lawyers We will need Roy Moore to logically aware much more sophisticated. They don't it's be programmers or odors or anything like that, but they need to have a quite a a a a strong understanding and gross what's going on in technology in that way if you like so. Yeah. We can definitely see an. Yeah, so I, think you mentioned the so from a structure perspective in all forum DC law firm sprucing to word. It a group of equity partners. Around it by machine so to speak well, I. Think. I was in that paper or another one I. I'm S-. Forecast. Law. Firms. Being. Distributed decentralized we'll tournaments organizations running on a blockchain with with the various people. into setting when they will no I. Think the law firm is still a very strong and powerful is Shutian, that's not gonNA disappear straight away. But certainly the numbers of partners who control things will shrink. They'll that will get smarter as proportion and yes, they will be surrounded by machines and they surrounded by people who are servicing those machines. Your excellent. Yeah. Thanks for doing this weekend. John really enjoyed the conversation. Thank you very much. It's been great fun and very
Growing Your Photo Business with Dixie Dixon
"Able to welcome back to another episode of this week in photo I'm your host. Frederik. Van Johnson today I have the honour and pleasure of sitting down with the illustrious Nikon shooting. Dixie Dixon, she talked about world. He's got he's working on what letter here we're GonNa talk about Nikon and all that good stuff dixie welcome to the show. Are you doing amazing thanks so much for that great intro I. Appreciate it. It's all true. It's all. You're awesome. I'm excited to be here today and chat with you. Cool. Well, let's talk about stuff. So you know we've just you know full disclosure you and I did an interview before over on the sky loon behind the scene podcast that I also host but I wanted to invite you onto this show is well because I want to. kind of slightly different direction and. Introduce you to this week and photo audience as well as the behind the scene audience if you subscribe to behind the scene search for it and go subscribe to that one too. So Yeah. Good stuff. Who is Dixie Dixon? Ukraine. So I've seen your name in fact. I. was just doing a livestream with a friend of mine who's also a Nikon shooter and I said I gotta go I. GotTa Hang Up because I'm getting ready to talk to Dixie Dixon and he's like I was like, have you heard of Dixie Dixon? He's like Have I heard of Dixie Dixon. It's like, have you heard of Prince? So. Tell us how did you get from where you were to being kind of a household name in the in the photography world? I appreciate that so much. Gosh it's been a really crazy adventure. I've had photography jobs. So I started out shooting the cheesy little league pictures shot with film actually was the Nikon F G camera, and so we'd be doing all those cheesy soccer ball like posing with a soccer balls and Just, the team photos and stuff like that, and then I ended up joining the yearbook staff and my image ended up making the cover of the yearbook. So for me, it was like a way to get out of my shell a little bit. I'm very much a sort of an introvert. So it was sort of felt rebellious and helped me get to know people and communicate and have fun and so that for me was like a moment. Wow maybe I could actually do this for a living. So I ended up going off to college I would have loved to majored in photography, but I really thought. Maybe I should figure out the business so I can actually figure out how to make a living doing this. So I ended up studying. Entrepreneurship at TCU and fell in love with the business side and then I ended up studying abroad with a world renowned fashion photographer I literally googled fashion photography study. Abroad. And there was one program through Syracuse University. So I got to go and study with Jeff Licata and listen over in London and Prague and do my first big fashion shoot, and that is when I really fell in love with the fashion photography side of things. So yeah, it's fun adventure I felt like it was yesterday but it's It's crazy how fast time flies and I got a job sheeting TV show and it just all came together. I have so many questions like I'm I'm curious how it works from. A lot of a lot of the twitter audience. Sure as the same question like the. One one path to success as a photographer seems to be fashion right? You got to be a fashion slash commercial photographer. You gotta be that person walking on said and you're in charge and you know the House music stumping in the background and models are doing their thing. There's a wind machine. Blowing. And somebody's up there like stevie nicks with the white thing. So how do you? How do you get there like what's what's the path from leaving school in entrepreneurship going through the internship and seeing how it's done from behind the scenes to building a brand like your brand and being sponsored and representing brands like Nikon? Yes. So it's been I always feel like as an entrepreneur you think you're just GonNa, go a nice gradual progression upward, but it's like. It's an interesting. It's an interesting journey if you will. There's ups and downs along the way. I. Mean my first few years I was shooting everything I was shooting weddings and portrait's and product. If anyone called me to do a shoot I knew how to do it. I said Yes to almost everything yeah. Just to just to pay the bills and whatnot so I ended up up to different websites My fashion website and then my commercial website I mean my wedding website and portrait website. So basically, when people would reach out and they wanted portraits, weddings, I was sent him to that website, and then all the fashioned stuff on my fashioned website was all three work that I had shocked my portfolio. So ultimately, you have to show the type of work that you WANNA be shooting. So I was wanting to shoot the fashion work so you have. To, go out and shoot that work, and then you're gonNA, eventually start attracting those type of clients. So then I started shooting for modeling agencies, they would do like paid portfolio shoots for their models. It started out as free portfolio shoots and then they ended up paying me to shoot their models for awhile and do that quite a lot and then that led to like two boutiques and showing them my work and ask him if I could collaborate.

"She said that one of the main reasons for the change in this. I didn't see coming was it. They want to expand. We're looking at expansion. In a couple of other areas one of the west coast one in south west. I talked briefly about this too. He says one of the things that happened is they started to see the research that showed that nationally internationally. The awareness of Dixie dixies brand awareness if you will is shrinking rapidly so in order to be able to Continue to expand our business. That's why the decision was okay so going back to Dolly. You're sitting there talking about this. That moment was really interesting for me because when she said I don't want to hurt people well I thought yes. Get everything I have known of her. In the last two years of interviewing her tells me that that is true. This is not somebody who ever wants to hurt somebody. All the molecules of her being seemed to be aligned in that direction and I think that's what people are called her but there's also that other aspect of dahlie which is a laser focus pragmatic business person and both of those things. Were there so powerfully in that one moment and I was like wow. I'm not used to seeing these two things in the same person in this way. I don't think personally that you can have a game about the civil war without talking about all of it all the ugly parts too. 'cause we're still fighting it on so many levels but I trust that if people say they are hurt she will listen and she will maybe change it again. I Dunno I know you know speaking of which you know. It's funny is a couple of days ago. I called up Pete again. I didn't record this call because it was just a fact check and I just have you. Have you guys discussed just thought about just removing north and South just taking out the thorns of this thing. Keep the competition the horses the the beautiful people and the pigs. We love the pigs. Yeah but just take out north and south Protect themselves protect the future. It would help everything and he said no but then and I asked him you know or the just to check our the costume still red and blue and he said actually they've changed. I said they changed again and he said Yeah. They're red and green lean. I was like red and green red and green and he said Shema Christmas northover South Pole. That's what they're doing now.

"Dolly Parton. America will continue in a moment. This is Dolly Parton America. Jad Shema picking back up with the story. Dolly inner team announced. They're changing the name of the stampede. Almost immediately you can't rewrite history by taking the name off of it. The decision to take the Dixie out of the attraction that had been called. dixie stampede rubs a lot take the wrong way dixies heritage protesters voice their concerns outside what is now called Dolly Parton campaign. Basically what happened is like if you look at a lot of the different counter protests that were happening in response to statues being removed across the country. You see a lot of the same faces the same groups there's sort of on a circuit circuit going from place to place and when the name change was announced some of those same protesters. Nah Bro. y'All have bowed down to PC bullcrap. They diverted their travel. Plants came to pigeon forge. Came too far to be not back down into this thing. Many of the people there say the term dixie refers to the south and his fight in the civil of a war in all of a sudden. You are to rewrite history desire. We are not trying to rewrite history. Dali's now D- dixie stampede. It was all wrapped up in that larger drama. Now this was a very much a national conversation with a lot of different groups on the outside outside weighing and we were sort of curious to know just like what do people in the area think about this but before we could even have that thought or ask that question we got a call. I believe in the United States of America Government of the people I v Board. Tapu hours arrive Ashburn. We got a call from a woman. I'm Evelyn Miller who told us that she was related to Dolly. She's my fourth cousin. And you can you step through this. Would Evelyn happens to be a regent. At the Andrew. bogle chapter of the daughters the American revolution have been in the. Da are probably twelve years but stepped out for a while because the dare she calls. It is a group. Sir whose members have to trace back their lineage to someone who either supported or fought in the American revolutionary war back in seventeen seventy five six seven after one of of their monthly meetings. Evelyn with Jeremy and she immediately whipped out her phone key. Okay good okay. Now here we come down and open this genealogy APP okay say it says your forecast says Deli porn is possible your fourth goes okay. Okay now Catherine Powell who married the Bohannon successor. Seventy two. Now you know you three which makes us no not removed at all. Catherine Powell is Dolly's fourth great-grandma there and she tried to walk me through the sequence of connections actions but it was felt like trigonometry they had betsy Elizabeth and by the way could you. Could you repeat that Evelyn was not the only one there. Claiming Dali link think we met another guy named art. Two daughters married to though boys again and they had lots of children who also claimed that he was always fourth cousin. Granddaughter is friends with Dolly's great niece. And they have a sleepover. It seems like everybody in this region has a connection to dollars dollars. Says they do well yes so it would seem many case. We had chicken and brownies. We watched presentation about the history of Scotland and since these are people who obsess about history and lineage after lunch we Sort of turn the conversation to the subject of the stampede thing that she should have changed the night as I was growing up weeks. Everyone's shutdown change. The name changed. Thinks she should have changed. tamely outside and you're from the unions lowly they weren't confederates. East Tennessee was mostly union one. What an interesting wrinkles about having this debate in east Tennessee is that this part of Tennessee was initially pro union? During the war they were annexed by the confederacy. Unwillingly unwillingly. So there's a very independent. Like don't tell me WHO's team I'm on. I'm on my own team. Don't confuse me with the rest of the south or anyone else kind of vibe that you get. When did you talk to people here? And it's partly for that reason that most of the people of the table with us the ten or so people we were talking to flag. You're talking about Dixie Dixie stampede slang the statues and everything else. They found the whole idea that you would erase a word to make someone else somewhere else feel better kind of irritating as you were very. They were okay for one hundred fifty years and now sudden. They're no good. That doesn't make any sense to me at all. I think it's people. Are you willing to fight back. Yeah and a civil war for the right to retain my country yes my ancestors. Didn't I guess I have to do it too if it came to that not not. Everybody felt that way coming to my mind in this discussion is when you know better. You're supposed to do that times. Were different different back then. Times are changing Dolly fell that she needed to change the name. All all these things were okay for one hundred fifty. And how far are you going to go right. That's Hugh and the Church now exam nria that Washington's Pew historic worked Virginia Church will remove a memorial plaque honoring. America's first president took his name of Washington and Jefferson are on Mount Rushmore. There's more they own slaves. She would take them down. We're GONNA chased the statue. Dan Retire The statue stand and we need to burn the history books folks with the with the the the critics. I would agree with you. That the the reason they wanted her to change is it the actual story being told in it was itself changing history naught acknowledging history. We have acknowledged history. We have to watch what we've been here The conversation started to feel a bit familiar and sort of like one one of those moebius strips. Those weird shapes that kind of in an out in and out and around. And you're never quite sure which side of the shaper on one person would say we shouldn't raise history and then someone someone else would jump in and say that's not what's happening here. These statues and monuments and memorials. Were all put up long after the civil war was over mostly during the Jim crow pro era if anything. These things themselves are an attempt to rewrite history which seems to have worked by the way. If you look at surveys done on this when people were asked what do they think I think the main cause of the civil war is forty eight percent said mainly about states rights. Only thirty eight percent said mainly about slavery. I mean it's just a fact. The civil war was fought and slavery. Clearly we have a deep problem in this country if a majority of Americans don't think that and you could argue that these monuments and even things like the dixie stampede which staged the civil war as kind of like a pillow fight. There's a danger danger to it in your teaching kids. A particular sanitized version of history. That was scholar. Patricia Davis again by the way. And if you it grew up with the Dolly Parton version of it you you would be very difficult to understand. the divides that we have now Okay so a question. In our first interview we talked really briefly about the the situation with the stampede. So now that we're sort of looking back on it. Can you explain your thinking behind changing the name and like what do you feel like you learned from that experience. Well there are several reasons that we change a few reasons. Maybe I should say a couple of reasons. One being that out of ignorance people do things. You don't know a lot of my my things that I do wrong just out of jury ignorance really because you grow up a certain way. And you don't know the Dixie. We always thought. Wait House in in the land of Dixie or Dixieland Dixieland Music Dixie. You're just Don Dixie. As a part of you know part of America and it was offensive. You know 'cause like I say out of ignorance you don't know that you're hurting be never thought about it being you know about slavery or arena that but when it was brought to our attention in some woman wrote about it and I thought well Lord have mercy on our. Never you want to hurt anybody for any reason and being a businesswoman. We didn't really have that many people say anything about it. But I thought Lord of I've offended one person as a business woman. I don't WanNa do that so we completely cleared all that out and started over that we just wanted to fix it. Because I don't want to ever hurt hurt or offended anyone and so I did it as a good faith effort to show that it was never meant to cause anyone any pain sitting there. I thought back to our conversation with each Harris who had been wondering. I'm just curious as to like. Does she really like like. Did she understand where I was coming from so it sounds like you hear you heard the criticism. I hear any criticism. I I hear it because if it's hurt somebody I'm certain talk about that but then the name change we are planning to be. We do have other Dixie. We have other stampedes now. They're just calling dollars stampede or just stampede but were actually gonna be all over all over the world with that so it just made made more sense. 'cause we have those beautiful horses just to have the word stampede. And it wasn't like a location so it really in my mind it was a business choice as well wail..

"The the grand finale erupted in a crescendo of patriotism forces concert in formation with a riders wearing hiring lighted costumes red white and blue and waving the American flag. Are you the crowd to be an American boom the MC a supersized image of a resplendent red white and blue Dolly Parton that fills the entire screen at the end of the stadium. Responded responded no no south no east no West but one United States of America Freedom and justice for all dollies here only is America. The crowd erupts screaming planting in stamping. It was such an overwhelming experience. The that as soon as I wanted as soon as critical self kicked in and I thought hang on that's an appalling way to write history that'd be a flame thrower or something to distract distract. It's hard to stay in one place ironic serious critical. It's it's it's difficult. Go for me to be critical. If Dolly Parton I feel like I'm betraying myself. Helen if you call from the first episode is a huge Dolly Fan. I'm going to have some light of a clear. Blue morning has really helped me out of many blue period. She says while researching her book. This was the one place in the Dalai I. It didn't quite land right for her and she realized there's a real big divide between the Dalai. She grew up with the woman. You Know Sassine back to her boss in the movie nine to five live and staunch supporter of Lgbtq and this other idea of Dolly that she encountered in the south and especially at the stampede impede. It's a more conservative version. I think as Nadine Hubbs said at the beginning Dolly can pull off contradictions. No one else can pull off but then twelfth two thousand seventeen. You're looking at live pictures out of Charlottesville Virginia. Yeah this is where violent clashes have broken out between white nationalist and counter protests there. A- As you may remember in Charlottesville there had been a movement to take down to confederate statues and people who didn't want that to happen a group including the Ku Klux Klan and Neo Nazi gathered to defend the statue. Things turned violent. Almost immediately. One person is dead and nineteen injured after a speeding vehicle drove into a group of protesters marching peacefully through downtown Shirley and suddenly this conversation which have been bubbling for awhile burst out onto the national national stage questions about who gets to write the history that we take fact who gets to be honored. Demonstrators took the debate over confederate monuments to the streets of Richmond. Virginia today Baltimore's Mayor Mayor ordered the city's four confederate monuments were moved in the midst of all of this rethinking and taking down monuments monuments. Hello is this I. USUA- invasion a woman named Aisha Harris a New York based writer who work it slate. At the time she was on slack. This is in the days after Charlottesville and one of her colleagues message saying hey have you heard about this thing. That Dolly Parton does down in pigeon enforce just kind of escalated from there it was like holy crap like why did I noticed. I loved only part in like what she decides to fly from New York to Pigeon Forge Wjr and do what is essentially sort of a theater review of the dixie stampede. The tone was really funny but also quite critical. Why are there signs of the bathroom from saying northerners southerners only? Why is there zero mention of slavery? I was curious about the backlash like did you what. What was the result when you wrote the article? It's not actually the the most votes backlash I've had for peace since I wrote about Santa Claus recall that uh Writing that Santa Claus. Oh that was a new. Oh my God what she's referring to. There is an article that she wrote in December sort of two thousand thirteen. That argued the. Maybe it's time we stopped representing Santa Claus as an old white man. How about? Let's make sense penguin because a penguin is a bird that has no race But if you WANNA map race onto it it's black and white. She says a lot of people didn't like that suggestion. But when it came came to her article about the stampede they really didn't like it and you can burn and die in hell or like there was one. I can't remember exactly what it said but it it sort of implied hide something about my family and I was like okay. This is getting a little weird. One of the things that people kept saying was this is like the tweets and emails Dolly. I partner done more for other people than you could ever imagine you can do. She's still native money to this. 'cause this level Blah limpest and the thing about it is that I wrote the piece as a Dalia Fan. Did you grow up with music. I didn't grow up with her music. But then you know I watched nine to five save for the first time I read about her and she's such is she's been. She's such a smart businesswoman. I think that's something to celebrate elebrate until it's a kind of up to it. She says that she just wanted to point out. That even amazing people have blind spots or not. That long after at the wind came came out so I can understand why that sort of love of the fake southern Identity I can see how that could creep. Its way into her work. But it's twenty seventeen now and I and I and it baffles me that thirty years later this show still exist. Well I mean it's something that we're talking about for a number of years this pedo and the vice president of marketing and public relations for Dollywood before we just start just to sort of like Because we're on the radio. There's a lot of sound good sound. I like the sound. Snakes where are we. We're sitting in the lower lobby of Hollywood's woods. Drew more resort and SPA adjacent to the dollar would catch according to Pete they had already been talking about making. Some changes is even before I use. His article came out so we we started to talk about it a couple of years ago. You'd you'd heard criticism imagine not as much as you would think. Can you. Honestly I mean I think most people got the fact that you know it's a good natured. Competition between one side of the arena and the other side of the arena conversations. Were you having like leading up to the thing. What were some of those discussions about well? I mean I think is. Does that really describe what it is doing now. I mean you guys have seen the show all the discussions were does. That really describes moving moving forward is you know is this really who we are. Everywhere is becoming more diverse. And we WANNA be as Dolly is as inclusive as we possibly can so pizzas after the article ended the team huddled together with Dolly and we'll hear from Ernest and they decided to make some changes. I they decided to remove all the plantation imagery and any overt references to the civil war so for instance. The uniforms changed colors. There was no longer gray and blue. The northerners were given red and the southerners were given Blue Day a Got Rid of the signs on the bathroom. They sort of threw out. A few of the traditional music. Numbers wrote some new tunes and most importantly we made the decision then to to just remove just to remove A dixie from the name. Pardon announced the show is dropping the word a Dixie from its name Valley Pardons dixie stampede. Got Rid of the Dixie and is now Dolly Parton stampede. Anything that had a logo on it or a reference prince on it to the name will change the dixie stampede signed still stands here in pigeon forge but take a look over this way. Something looks different in one news report. You can super giant cranes removing the word Dixie off the front of the building hers. I've been out here. Removing the letters on the building and anything else. That has the word dixie on it. I take take. I'm I'm happy that like they did that. That's Aisha Harris again. This time in the studio I I like to imagine that maybe she had a change of heart. And if that's the case then I appreciate her even more but as you can imagine not. Everybody felt that way. We're bringing people April flag signs. We will have people out here coming up. We follow the story through a few more twists and turns and Dolly herself.

"Your way out of a wet paper bag. Aw and then. All of a sudden twelve riders on Horseback Storm Storm into the arena. Half of them wearing red and half of them wearing blue red south blues north they start zipping around the ring. They look gorgeous gorgeous. They're waving. Everyone starts cheering. The writers are jumping up on top of their horse standing writing than jumping-off flipping down into the sand and then jumping back onto the heart. It was I was. It was really impressive. Only God yeah and then teams mm start to compete. They do a bunch of writing competition cowboy boy. Giles kits each side. They chase chickens. At one point the pigs come out little piglets with keeps deeps race across the arena ours were quite mighty and then you realize you're eating pork. And then then let me. Just talk to the weirdness but all like you are you are watching this. You're pounding lemonade. Yeah the they're serving you eliminate in these giant gallon size cups shaped like boots and you're drinking gallons of lemonade. The sugars hitting your bloodstream. And you're flying but in the back of your mind you're having these thoughts like civil civil war as a friendly rivalry was the civil war friendly. Wasn't it really about slavery. Well yes but of course bring up. Slavery would be a downer. It's not it's not going to bring in the money. This is Patricia. Richard Davis Cultural Studies Professor Northeastern University. She grew up in. The South writes a lot about southern identity. She calls places like the dixie stampede. The tourist imaginary you know in terms of civil war the tourist imaginary would be you know the antebellum South Lena. The huge plantation houses houses. The you know the flowery bells the you know the noble gentleman and you know everybody's happy. There is no slavery there is no discussion of exactly exactly what Exploitation led to that grandeur assist the grandeur that's displayed up until a few years ago. The stampede hit all all of those points. You had the one location giant plantation backdrop southern Belles dancing and be skirts writers for the South would come out and uniforms that were confederate gray rights for the North would be in union blue and there were even signs over the bathrooms that said northerners only southerners only the show. We saw those notes were a little more muted but troubling thoughts would enter the mind But anytime they did explosion. It's brilliant theater. This is classics professor. Helen Morales she wrote about at the finale of the dixie stampede. In her book pilgrimage to Dollywood there was a collective gasp the beauty of the spectacle before the audience could reflect upon the results of their civil conflict..
