FBI director raises national security concerns about TikTok

"FBI director Chris wray has security concerns about TikTok. The video sharing app is extremely popular in the U.S. and is owned by a Chinese company ByteDance. All of these things are in the hands of a government that doesn't share our values and that has a mission. There's very much at odds with what's in the best interest of the United States. Speaking at the Ford school of public policy in Michigan, racist content could be manipulated. The gives them the potential to leverage the app in ways that I think should concern us. Ray also says data on the app could be used for traditional espionage operations, a TikTok executive told the Senate hearing in September. The company protects all data from American users and Chinese government officials have no access to it. Ed Donahue, Washington

Gov. Kristi Noem: TikTok Ban for South Dakota Government

"Made headlines just the other day by signing an executive order banning TikTok on for state government agencies employees and contractors specifically using state devices. Why did you do that? Well, we're learning more and more every single day about the national security threat that TikTok is to our country and to our individual citizens. It's my job as governor to protect the people's South Dakota. We know that China is using TikTok and manipulating algorithms to gather information on the people in this country. They're not only gathering what kind of websites or videos that they watch and learning from us that way they're also potentially getting our keystrokes to what buttons we push on our phones, but getting access to passwords could potentially violate our financial accounts and personal information, even health and information. It's a real threat to our country and we know China's our enemy. You know, they hate us. This is their agenda that they've had for hundreds of years is to destroy the United States of America and they're using this app to gather more information about American citizens and use it against us. So in South Dakota, we have banned the app on our servers on our networks, any state employee or contractor or someone who works with state government who accesses it or downloads the app. We'll face criminal penalties and that's something that we sent a clear message that we have a lot of personal information and state government that we're not going to allow China to hack into by using this app and I'm hopeful that other leaders in other states and in Congress will do the same.

Elizabeth Warren: Anti-Elon Musk and Anti-Free Speech

"Listen to what Elizabeth Warren a powerful U.S. senator from Massachusetts said about Elon Musk yesterday in the halls of Congress. Republicans say that Democrats are picking on Elon Musk. Elon Musk is doing just fine. But do you think that users have a right to freedom of speech, even if what they're saying is wrong or offensive? I think that one human being should not decide how millions of people communicate with each other. One human being should not be able to go into a dark room by himself and decide, oh, that person gets heard from that person doesn't. That's not how it should work. Wait a minute. One person, Elon Musk, who owns Twitter, who believes that you should be able to say what you want to say on Twitter, that's not how it should work. That's literally what she said. In other words, you don't have freedom of speech. In the Democrats version of America. You don't get to say how you feel about things. You meet you need to be deplatformed and censured and now it leaves to the embarrassment of a former Twitter executive, Twitter's ex safety chief, a guy named Joel Roth was interviewed at something called the knight foundation conference and he admitted finally that Twitter was wrong in censuring the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop scandal.

Ed Dowd: A Passion to Analyze the Effects of COVID Vaccine Mandate

"Across a conversation with doctor Brett Weinstein, who I always consider to be very far left, but honest, and then doctor Malone, you probably remember the conversation was on the dark horse podcast that went viral. And I said, well, that's interesting. If they're talking about this, then there's something to this that I think people are missing. We asked our audience. We got thousands of emails of people all across the country saying the same thing of different ages, specifically young menstrual menstrual cycle, disruptions, dropping dead, all sorts of nerve issues, and so on and so forth. So I guess my question is, as someone who used to work at BlackRock, how did you get into this and why are you so passionate about it? Yeah, no problem. So, you know, look, like you, I'm curious person. That's been my whole career. My expertise and lies in the space between perception and reality. And the perception at the time I was hearing all these anecdotes was that it's safe and effective. You got to take in an oh, by the way, we're going to mandate this. And that's where that's where I became passionate about this in the summer of 2021. I saw the same podcast she did with doctor Malone and Brett on the dark horse podcast. And that's when I said, aha. Something's really awry here. And that's when I started to dig. And you know, I'm just one of those people that likes to figure out puzzles and the puzzle that I was starting to figure out was horrific. And like yourself, I was never anti vax. I mean, I literally got a tetanus booster two years before COVID. So after my journey, I'm not taking another vaccine ever again. But that's now. Like you, I was not anti anything. My eyes have been opened up and the way that the guts of the medical system and the pharmaceutical system work is flawed and its profit rent seeking behavior that I'm seeing from all these individuals, both the regulators and the farmer, the pharma executives, and some politicians that are bribed by the farm executives to pass laws in their favor.

Winston Churchill's Warning of the Iron Curtain

"To get this visual idea of a curtain coming down, when this speech came out, this was a fault that had been around that you used a mini, this separated the two sides. This iron curtain is a movable object that is coming down in which the east and the west were separate. If you read deeply into the speech, you can see that Churchill's desire, is there not to be a separation. I think he believed inherently that if there would be more cooperation, there would be more influence. There would be more contact. There would be more of the freedom contacting the non freedom that the freedom would win out. Of course, the USSR did not want that freedom. They did not want their influence, the people influenced by free invest you saw this iron curtain is Churchill. So poetically put, crossing the continent of Europe and taking what was free on one side as he talks about and then what was not free on the other. If you look at this today, the concern that is out there among many. Is that we are seeing communist states. Our totalitarian states who are seeing more and more of an opportunity to expand their sphere of influence and expand opportunities. We're seeing them become more closed in. You see North Korea that is one of the most backward, small countries in the world that terrorizes all people for it's living. And a very existence. You have China who's spreading more and more and putting pressure on its neighbors. You see Russia who is taking armed aggression into those to provide a quote buffer, real or imagined in Putin's head to keep the Soviet Union or the Russia and protection. This is seems in 1945 or 1946 in this speech but I believe Winston Churchill laying out the facts. That in a world in which you have divisions of beliefs in freedom and expansion for people that the governments of the world are going to have to be able to cooperate with each other and experience the benefits of freedom, the benefits of a government in which you have a legislative executive you have a judiciary that is on its own and not try to keep people in the dark or behind the curtain of freedom. This is going to be the battle as we go forward. It was the battle then. And it's something now that you hear a great deal of spoken of whether it's in the Ukrainian president zelensky, you hear it with the other country surrounding them, is that if this happens in Ukraine, what is next? Is it simply going to stop here?

"So the first time Bernie brillstein met John Belushi was 15 minutes before the first taping of SNL. Two days before that, NBC's legal department sent Belushi an employment agreement and Belushi was worried because of a small clause that said NBC had the right to cancel his contract if he were disfigured. Now, you have to understand that cameras are ready to roll. And John still hadn't signed the contract. And an NBC executive was like pleading with brillstein and John to sign the agreement and Belushi leaned over to brillstein and said, would you sign this contract? And Bernie said, I designed the fucking contract, sign it. You can always break it. Let's make millions. You're just not going to find guys like that anymore. So that was the beginning of a very long and close relationship. While almost like father and son,

Run their operations What's even more interested in my mind is that he bootstrap this so instead of going out and raising funding he self-funded it and so while he had this grandiose vision he had focused pretty narrowly on Solving a couple of specific problems so that he could fund the company and so they started off with a Process engine or workflow engine but pretty quickly pivoted to legal hold And i know it's interesting because we have one of our bigger competitors are also here in portland and it's very odd kind of coincidence that you have two leaders Very niche market. But for the people who don't don't understand this Anytime there civil litigation the law states that you have to both preserve any information related to the dispute but then ultimately go find that data collected review it and if it's relevant to the matter you have to turn it over to your adversary which is a little bonkers when you think about it but Bobby started on the the legal whole part Which was really a notification system to to let your employees or other people involved know. Hey you've got this requirement not to get rid of information calm but then he over time as external had success in the legal market he started building out that platform just for the discovery process so the ability to go search and find the data collected and then easily review it to determine whether or not it was while event and that's really what drove tremendous amount of success for the company and Growth but then back in two thousand eighteen.

But it's it's it's actually a very interesting story from a entrepreneurial perspective and a vision perspective Our company was started by bobby balachandran and a few of his colleagues and back at that time and this was probably two thousand eight And bobby had worked at some very large financial institutions insurance companies and banks and one of the things that he noticed was that the legal department really didn't have The maturity from technology perspective that all the other departments in the organization did You know he he looked at any side. You know you've got sap oracle that are building these platforms for finance for supply. Chain for manufacturing for application development neva. You had these really large. It wasn't just sap or oracle but You think about even now Salesforce what they've done to sales and marketing with their platform and he looked at Legal just said you know..

"But i mean it's just a whole broader thing is that we're all struggling struggling with that concept so that being said and because i you're not watching video i was kind of cover my ears because the old office environment is like if you had your headphones on. That was kind of the signal right other me. So what are some of the things as you expand the product. Tense down the road map. You can share your. Yeah well so. We started with the calendar sink. And and then we expand their basically kind of like the the hierarchy of needs of of what people have to deal with as. They're managing their time. And the first one is just like straight up. You know you're working your life boundaries and making sure there's a clear delineation and that you're not getting double booked and all that kind of stuff An interesting side note for your listeners. Anyone who's a consultant Turns out we actually built like a killer app for consultants. That's not our main kind of focus. But those poor souls often get dragged into where they might have four or five different calendar and entities and their wrestling. They're wrestling the seven. If it's if it's their own practice you know they probably can't afford to pay for a full time assistant and so they were really struggling. And so we've we've actually got this really interesting me show of rabidly rabid fans of our product to use us to integrate many calendars together but But we went on from there. We said okay. Look we can block out time for personal commitments. Kind of one off personal commitment that are happening on in your world but what about routines and so in mid twenty twenty we got into a feature recall habits which is lockout time for stuff. I want to do on a regular basis so it might be much at the most common fee you common when our customers use. It might be catch up on your inbox. That's one that..

"Everyone welcome back the pd ex-executive podcast. I'm your host. Dan bruton and my favorite episodes. Nothing against anybody ever interviewed that are not startup. Founders are really digging into new companies in town who've gotten funding into doing really interesting things. So i'm excited to have an ex guest patrick lightbody. Who's a co founder of reclaim. Ai patrick welcome. Thank you glad to be here. You know as we mentioned before we started recording that i saw Something the news about funding in started do a little more research because admittedly i hadn't heard of The startup yet in just resonated with me someone who needs this tool so i guess i've loved it. Just kinda dig in and learn a little bit about yourself and what reclaim a is. Yeah totally i mean i. I think the best way to describe it is. We're a i think we are tagline. Today we're still working through the you know the the evolving marketing whatnot but is a smart calendar assistant or smart friend for your calendar or something along those lines. Basically we're a piece of software that aims to do some not certainly not all but some of the job that say professional executive assistant might do in particular around the time blocking and time management and as it relates to literally being on your digital calendar and the kind of impetus behind it was really born. I think there's a few things i can get into it. You know as we keep talking around the the origin story. But i'd say the one of the driving causes was quite literally henry. My co-founder and i both lived the pain of managing managing our time managing our calendars as kind of mid to senior executives at at a portland software company new rally. And so you know that certainly helped us understand our market pretty quickly because it was basically for ourselves and lots of other people like us in turns out. there's quite a few. I mean the token have come at a better timing..

"Got a great guest today. I'm excited to have on. He spoke at one of my events a few years ago when we do those kinds of things and persons so Wanted to welcome tobias read. Who's the oregon state treasurer welcomed by us. Thanks for the conversation so we were just chatting and whenever this comes out but right now we're in the middle of the extreme heat wave and pretty crazy for the state of oregon. So we'll hopefully everybody you know got through that okay. By the time. I listen to this but let's start to bias love to learn you know about your journey and then for the folks who don't maybe fully grasp what the treasurer does for straight talk a little bit about that as well. Sure which is to say most people who are dealing with a normal life. I'm an oregonian by choice. I came here for college after having been raised in idaho and have more or less a stuck around. Because it's such a wonderful place but had the goods Fortune during high school and college to work in politics when i went to willamette. Of course it's right across the street so it was easy to find an opportunity to try to apply the lessons. I was learning in the classroom in the real world back to work for some legislators campaigns those sorts of things found that i really liked it so After i finished at willamette i also had the chance to work on the us treasury department in washington which really convinced me of my desire to better understand how business and government relate the private and public sector. I think is always wear the intersection of those two. Were the most interesting things happen. So headed off to to business school at the university of washington acid too loudly that around here but but it was a great a great business experience and then can back to oregon and worked at At nike and while i was there i ran for the legislature and people often ask me what in the world that had had to do with one with the other but it turns out that being a footwear developer. Which is what. I was this really good preparation for policy. Making this is not the artistic stuff is not the design stuff but it's the project management. It's iterating and continuing to experiment to figure out what the recipe is for a shoe and in that process. It really is a question of priorities so that's what i mean by it being a good preparation for policy-making yes you could have that super special swoosh treatment but maybe not at the price you want to pay for that shoe or you could do that new rubber compound but it might not be ready for the delivery date. You're seeking so you get better with a variety of collaborators. At determining what the real priorities aren't it turns out that's pretty useful in the legislature. So i was fortunate to serve in the legislature for ten years house representing beaverton. I found that to be very much like college where a committees are started like classes..

It is feels. I think from the individual's perspective like maybe a little white lie. Were it's really easy to rationalize they're not asking me. If i'm enrolled student they're asking me for dot. Edu email address which is legit right. A slow go on obviously from friction standpoint as the consumer like if it was just somehow verified will. I'm all for obvious so Well let's get into the business a little bit For people that don't know where you're at in the life cycle. You brace funding and i think thinks is public. I think it's around two hundred million or let's part of which four were. We live here in portland or here in oregon is a big hall so tell me about just that part of it but also just the life cycle of business where you're at totally so not easy You know our roots are in eugene oregon in when we started with no customers and no data partnerships. We're fortunate enough to engage with an individual who is one of the first checks to our men phil knight. Just start nike nice. You fell in love with the vision in fell in love with the opportunity to mentor. I mean what i would call kind of. His last class of co founders and entrepreneurs were his sixty second. New venture is since passed. So he worked with with him as the lead in a small group of angels in eugene for first four years to build this thing and we did it in a way that somewhat different than a lot of people do like precede seed rounds this little bit technical but all common stock not board seats but every monday for two hours. My co founder. David and i would meet with him for two on a regular mix okay so essentially using amazing mentor who had been around the block and was there to teach. Yeah support So from there are thesis has always been the time to go out and see institutional investment really has to be connected to the fact. You actually have a real business. There are a lot of people who go out and they'll start raising from institutionals Pre product market fit. And i think that can be. It can be unnecessarily challenging. Because really what you're doing is you're saying. I want sophisticated investors in real board culture in governance. When really what i meant is an experimental phase right and i think that can invite like meddlers in real handy or members and that's not what we want right we. We had a very clear vision. It was working in. it was time with. I think we had like thirty. Customers had crossed a million in recurring revenue. Time to actually get more sophisticated..

"Might not know too much about this company and it is a very large company here in oregon so excited have jake weatherly the ceo and co founder of sheer. I a jake is data. Thanks for having me. Yeah you bad. I'm really excited to get into the story. I know you've been the company's been around a little bit but There's been some big development so not a place it's always great to start is not tell slowed about just the origin story of the company. Sure sure so you might. Career and technology started way back in nineteen ninety sex and the huge huge fan in believer and passionate about customer experience. Supreme court service. Really helping people right not just customers in terms of big businesses but but individuals and so as i develop my career in support and service and sales for a little while and then basically head of customer experience. What i found was there was this kind of dusty corner That hadn't been addressed well with technology internet connectivity etc and that was quite simply like the application process and eligibility certification as it relates to applying for something. Were trying to get into something right. Specifically when i found my wife Was a third grade teacher at the time. My father in law is a military veteran and was running programs that are very specific to the academic audience where software is being adopted by professors and students at universities and colleges in each of those contexts. What i found was there. Were these really great programs in really great offers that were specifically designed for these target audiences or consumer tribes. But the problem was the last mile. The problem is actually the customer experience. Some of these programs were go find a fax machine or scanner and send us qualifying documentation. Operators are standing. I will get back you within like three to five days others were in store. Only a bring your id or your documentation in order to onward into this program or like get the discount at the cash register and others were basically super loose right like us dot edu which makes will get to keep long after they're enrolled as a student for example and so what we found is there is a lot of fraud and there was a lot of friction in some programs especially because really sensitive documents. Like my wife was asked for a pay stub one time Dister in Teacher discount where my father in law was asked for his. What's fell four. Dd to foretell. yeah now. that s something. You just have in your wallet. This discharge for him in your wallet that plus like full social security number. Blood tight everywhere. You were stationed cetera. And so we just found that this whole this whole area was broken what i believed in my co founders believed is that there is data in fact in a lot of these faces there is an individual record in a database somewhere that is the authoritative answer to these verification questions and so we started in two thousand eleven after we incorporated and it was just three co founders working on solving the problem in researching. I'm talking to the registrar's at universities in the pacific northwest and california in order to understand if there was a platform that could ask your enrollment database. Is this person really enrolled student. Would you connect to that platform in order to help deliver value to your enrolled students and you know it was interesting as they all said yes right and we were like. Why is this like a financial thing that were kind of flirting with or in. You know what they all said is just the right thing to do that. A sophomore should send her class schedule to a customer service rep in order to get a discount on music.

I wish i could show a map of what i call the post cova diaspora of what's going to happen to employees in this country so imagine we said everybody get in the boat that you're in right now. Watch two years from now. The unbelievable reset in the economy. That's going to happen when millennials one of my nieces right now with five of her colleagues in costa rica in a gorgeous home with fabulous wifi working for a company that she's never met her boss at now. Do you think if jerry zimmerman tells her you caroline you gotta come to the office tomorrow. We need to see you every day at seven am because that's the rule. Said he might have. Thought i'm picking jerry. Jerry would never say that. He's a smart man but there is a reckoning to come because she has precious specific knowledge. She is rare in this country. We don't have enough of her and she just helped to add value to affirm never meeting her boss. So there's a reset. And i asked her to come here that i don't think companies are talking about. It's almost like the soon now. The water is about to come back in and the carolines of this world. They're gonna vote with their labor before we wrap up in this really interesting. I had the former. Coo talk at my event of nike. Sorry former co nike and. ask him. I said well Younger people and nike must love this. 'cause the work from home and he said any culture like nike. These are the people that are really getting left behind because young people like to come to nike. They work there. Because serena williams is common. There's michael jordan. The older people love it. The people that have kids and stuff so it just depends on the industry. But i it's really. There's a big dark side to it and soon nami like you said if of the calm so the only way to to grapple with that has to be relentless to be open to be to not believe that the rules set of the past with the one there was a new rule set unfolding and the winners will be those who recognize flexibility. Who recognize we're living. We're going to have hybrid. We're going to have geography not matter. There's going to be times where you need everybody in the all hands meeting in event i always say that innovations a contact sport. I'd rather be in front of a whiteboard with jerry than on zoom.

Something about just amazon. Beginning of the book you said. Originally i think they were gonna call relentless or they bought relentless dot com and it still forwards amazon today right and that word in the context of you writing the book and maybe daniel just culture you can share. That's the word. I've been thinking a lot about a lot. But it's kinda got a negative context in some aspects of the business culture today like a we. We're we're pushing back around. Listen grinding too hard. It's more about the flexibility and different things so What's your thoughts on that daniel. Well the amount of change that's being thrown at leaders today small medium and large businesses I'd argue. We are facing shocks at a faster pace and a more consistent base and the role of technology. Just look where we are in this pandemic and look what has accelerated Sometimes we've had we've had we've had decades of to things where our country didn't wanna do telemedicine. Well i did. Six tele medicines within months of this pandemic cabin and i'm watching. Insurance companies balked now at pushing that back. I think that cats out of the out of the bag so relentless just to comment on that. I think any leader today to face these shocks that keep coming at us. has to have that mindset. And it doesn't mean recklessness relentless means you are able to apply and realize things like the four pillars that we talk about every day these four pillars gave you an option on keeping folks in the firm motivated and directed this in the same in this towards the same goals to your small business leaders out there. I will say. Don't my one of my best piece of advice to small leaders who are seeking to grow their companies. The norms values and behaviors. You started with as the founder of your company. The moment you get past five employees ten employees. Yesterday i spoke to a company with twenty employees and they had this incredible long defined list of of their culture and it was it was enormous and i call them on it. I said how many five quizzed you all do. You all believe all these things on this list because apparently that's used for and the founder gave me permission to say. Well what do we do about it. And i said well there's a chance now for you all to reset the social contract to ask. Are these the right values because the the founder gets to dictate them on day one on day. Five hundred the founder has to let go and realize with jerry has taught me which is. It's not about me. Projecting my value set on these employees is. It's about finding discovering them. What is their self interest..

"Let's go back to the daniel point. He mentioned he's doing some work with law firms. And i've done a fair amount of expert witnessing interact with a lot of big law firms and They're all self interested partners in there They are usually taipei personalities especially with the litigators and all law firms face. The common problem of fighting over the spoils that you often see. Law firms disintegrating win some senior partners. Go off or some junior partners. Go off and start their own firm because they think they can make themselves better off than Staying in the existing firm. There's always a fight between the rainmakers in the litigators and the people who are actually generating the billable hours in some of these law firms have this enormous conflict of interest. It certainly derives pleasure If you're a member partner in one of these law firms to say i am a partner in xyz which is a widely recognized firm versus going off and starting your own firm but the mafia and the switch. And the hells angels have created an incredible culture or people. Wanna be in these organizations. They wanna belong they they wanna be able to walk around their neighborhoods and having people look at them. And saying you know that guy's a made man or that guys the hell's angel miss with in so belonging As an economist an organization that can offer its members of strong sense of belonging gives him something they want and they're willing to make trade offs for that just like they made trade offs between weezer and work.

And then i continued it on after i came as you know now is really the time for us to focus on our existing clients and our existing partners. Like how can we serve them in unique ways through this challenging time and so it definitely kept us busy with just the regular work that we did but we had an amazing opportunity over the course of the last twelve months to really expand the work that we're doing with all of our existing clients. I'm an unfortunately you know. A lot of them are doing quite well. Because things are shifting online things are moving to digital. So they've they're doing well as a company but they also want to make sure that they're cleaning up the network while they go and so we've been able to to benefit from that side At but also you know we're constantly on our toes because the trends are always evolving emerging.

Which is basically a simple way of saying. It's online money laundering. So what happens. A lot of times companies are setting up online merchant account and. They say that they're gonna be selling shoes online. But they're actually using that merchant account that they got through their bank or through some other platform to then sell the sale of illegal pharmaceutical drugs or illegal firearms or whatever it might be and that is a huge growing trend. That's happening out there that we've been able to use our technology and data and human expertise to really get into on top of that And help you know.

I think the the on the pro side is just our people are the people here are great people. They're great to work with. We are really smart. Curious people and I just always find the portland. Technology goes system is just chock full of just really really intelligent people that are low ego and are good people to do work within want to solve complex problems. And so i feel like we've got a huge pool of very very talented people which is amazing you know obviously were a market than the bay area or seattle. But you know we hold our own when it comes to the people into the talent. That's here and i think you know as we continue to see. Some of the companies in our ecosystem grow and get bigger like. I love you von puppet. And what she's doing they're like. They've grown now to be a sizable company. And you know the air spawning off other things leaders coming from. They're going in starting other things. Like i think that's one thing that is maybe a little bit of a con is that we just haven't had as many Bigger technol- or we haven't had as many tech companies grow to like that next stage in next level where they get to you. Know five hundred thousand two thousand employees to then start to branch off and bubble out from the airing. That's that's my wish for..
