Bill Gates looks back at ‘The Road Ahead’ after 25 years and some hit-and-miss tech predictions
"Is sometimes cop to the criticism that on this show. We tend to focus on the horse race between the big tech companies. Who's up who's down. Who like roadblocks might be a godzilla of the future and who like maybe intel seems to be sliding towards being an irrelevant dinosaur of the past. The way i like to think about it is that we're covering the evolution and creative destruction of capitalism in real time keeping score of who's the richest person in the world is probably less relevant to that task but only obliquely so for what it's worth. It's worth noting that elon. Musk has overtaken bill gates to become the world's second richest person behind. jeff bezos. Quoting the verge. The tesla ceo net worth now sits at around one hundred twenty eight billion dollars after increasing by one hundred billion dollars this year alone. There is a sizable gap between. Musk and the number one spot which is currently held by amazon ceo. Jeff bezos who has reported net worth of around one hundred and eighty two billion dollars in january. Musk ranked thirty fifth on the list. Bloomberg reports musk's rapid ascent up. The list has mainly been driven by tesla share price. The car company currently has a market cap of almost five hundred billion dollars after starting the year at under one hundred billion dollars. The guardian reports that tesla has the highest market cap of any car company in the world despite producing a fraction of the cars of more established automakers. This year it expects lose. Five hundred thousand cars compared to around ten million for a company like toyota around three quarters of musk's net worth consists of tesla shares according to bloomberg but musk's other major venture space x has also seen recent success last week the company transported for astronauts to the international space station aboard. It's crew dragon spacecraft that follows the company's first crewed flight to space in may of this year bill gates sat atop the billionaires index for years until he was overtaken by jeff bezos in two thousand seventeen bloomberg notes. That gates would probably have a higher net wealth right now if he hadn't given so much money to charity including the over twenty seven billion dollars. He's donated through the bill and melinda gates foundation since two thousand six gates. Moscow have had some high profile disagreements this year in september. Musk said gateshead quote no clue about the viability of electric trucks after the microsoft co-founder said that electric semi trucks along with electric cargo ships and passenger jets will probably never be practical earlier. This year gates told cnbc that musk should avoid making big predictions about areas. He's not familiar. After the tesla's ceo downplayed the risk of the covid nineteen pandemic.

What's the Best Time to Eat Dessert?
"When is the best time to eat dessert. I've heard that it's better to eat it immediately. Following a meal because the protein and the meal will help stabilize the blood sugar. But i'm often too full after my meal to enjoy desert. I'd prefer to wait a couple of hours. In fact i often crave a sweet bite a couple of hours after eating his that. My blood sugar plummeting well. This is an interesting question. Let's start by taking a look at how eating dessert affects your blood sugar. Our blood sugar does go up after we eat and not just desert but this is not necessarily a problem in fact it's how the system is designed most of the carbohydrates we consume are broken down into glucose which is then absorbed into the bloodstream when blood sugar levels go up. It triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas which ushers the glucose out of the bloodstream and into the cells of the body. They're the glucose used as fuel or if no more fuel is needed it's stored for future use. It's also true that carbohydrates cause a faster rise in blood sugar when they're eaten by themselves but this is also not necessarily a problem if it's not a huge amount of carbohydrate then no matter how fast it's absorbed your blood. Sugar can only get so high and then assuming that your body is capable of producing insulin and your cells are reasonably responsive to its effects. Your blood sugar will gradually returned to normal regardless of how quickly or slowly it's absorbed however eating an excessive amount of sugar or carbohydrate can be a problem for one thing no matter how slowly it's taken up into your bloodstream. It all gets in there eventually. So if you are consuming more calories than you can use. The excess will be stored as fat. But what happens if your body is not able to efficiently. Clear that sugar from your blood into your cells because it's possible for the cells to become resistant to the effects of insulin. And when this happens. The sugar isn't cleared as effectively from the bloodstream. Only is it not available then as an energy source for yourselves but chronically high blood sugar can lead to a number of serious health issues. Insulin resistance is often the first step in developing type two diabetes. A lot of us. Worry that if we eat too much sugar too often it will lead us to develop insulin. Resistance or diabetes. But now we understand. It's more the other way around insulin. Resistance or poorly controlled diabetes results in chronically. High blood sugar. It turns out that eating a lot of sugar or eating foods that are rapidly converted into blood. Sugar are not the primary risk factors in the development of insulin resistance. The primary factors are excess body weight especially around the waist and a sedentary lifestyle. Now that doesn't mean that eating a lot of sugar have consequences if your body weight starts to drift up whether from over eating sweets or any other food that does increase your risk of insulin. Resistance in other words for those who do not have diabetes or insulin. Resistance the short term impact of desert on your blood. Sugar is probably not as big a concern as the long term impact of desert on your body weight. Our podcast received support from aero garden.

If you've always worn a mask thank you if you haven't learn more at h. dot. Virginia dot gov so. Should you wait before eating dessert. Anita wondered for example whether the fact that she starts to crave a sweet treat a couple of hours after eating might be assigned that her blood sugar is plummeting a couple of hours after a full meal. Your blood sugar may be beginning to return back to baseline. But that's not the same as plummeting and it's not a problem. It's fine for your blood to remain at baseline. For a couple of hours. Your cells will still have plenty of energy from your last meal. It's more likely that once we're no longer full our minds simply return to the thought of that appealing desert. There's a really big difference between being not full and being actually hungry and when sweets and snacks sound good but vegetables or another healthy choice doesn't sound that good. That's usually a sign that were not. Actually hungry were responding to other triggers such as boredom habit or simply the presence of attempting food. So how can we responsibly. Enjoy desert in terms of managing your blood. Sugar there's really not a big difference between eating dessert with your meal or a couple of hours later even though you feel less full after a couple of hours there's likely to still be enough food making its way through your digestive system to cushion the blow in fact there's even something called the second meal effect which means that a- protein-rich meal can blunt the effect of carbohydrates. Eaten up to four hours later waiting. A couple of hours might allow you to enjoy your dessert a little bit more than you would immediately after the meal and if we're going to have dessert let's be sure and enjoy it on the other hand waiting until later. Could tempt you to eat more than you would if you were to eat it with your meal so if you prefer to eat your dessert a couple of hours after dinner just be sure. The portion sizes stay reasonable. And if you want to enjoy desert with your meal you could always eat just a bit less of that main meal so that you have room for a bite or two have desert without over filling your stomach and finally whether or not you have diabetes and or not you choose to have dessert or when you choose to enjoy it. There is a simple and pleasant way to lower post meal. Blood sugar levels. Just take a fifteen to thirty minute. Walk around the neighborhood. It will help with digestion. It'll keep those blood sugar levels steadier while you digest your food and may even help you sleep a little bit. Better
Tech industry prepares for Biden presidency
"Is preparing to take over in January. What is on the tech industry's mind with a broad abiding presidency on the horizon. I think it's a good question, and we're still kind of waiting to see where exactly By then it's going to take this. But for a while, there was thought that you know, maybe Democrats would be more willing to work with the tech industry. But in the last couple of years we've seen kind of opinion shift, too. Concerns about market dominance of these huge tech firms and concerns about privacy, and we don't think that the Biden administration is gonna let up on those. Of course, we know the Justice Department has filed a suit against Google, and we believe there's another one. When the government in the works against Facebook, and there's no reason to think that the button administration will let up on that, In fact, they could possibly even expand those investigations.

Even used stevens last name though they were not legally married. Despite her protestations barbara was arrested and police began their investigation. But perhaps barbara's protests weren't as far fetched as police had assumed a cursory internet search revealed. That barbour stephen were active members of an online cult. Run by a woman named sharee schreiner. The detectives searched for answers would lead investigators down a dark path filled with coded messages alien lizards and vampires. Hi i'm greg paulson.

Wherever you're listening it really does help. This is our first and only episode on sherry schreiner. The woman behind a virtual reptilian kalt will explore her troubled childhood as well as how schreiner used the internet to cultivate her following sherry. J. schreiner was born on december eleventh. Nineteen sixty five in cleveland. Ohio into a devout god fearing christian family. She attended private christian schools and went to church every sunday. Surrounded by discussions of jesus and religion. Schreiner never remembered a time when she wasn't thinking about discussing reading the bible while sherry was a very private person of the information that's known about our comes from her self published books in one titled bible codes revealed the coming. Ufo invasion sherry claimed that she was proclaiming. God's name by the age of two and she was reborn by the age of five however also at that time she developed horrific haunting night terrors which she described in vivid detail sherry wrote. A figure would stand at the foot of my bed and stare at me as i lay trying to sleep. Fear and sheer terror with grip every muscle and bone. I had it was at least seven feet tall dark and evil. I would shrivel under my blankets and pray for it to go away. I did not know what it was other than feeling it was some evil being straight from hell and i certainly did not know what it wanted. Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But she has done a lot of research for this show. thanks greg. The national sleep foundation explained that night terrors can have several causes including extreme tiredness lack of sleep or stress. It is quite possible that stress of her family's devout contributed to share his night terrors. As a child though. We don't know the specifics of the situation. Perhaps sheri's family put pressure on her to adhere to a specific code of conduct prescribed by their faith sheri's terrors continued to haunt her well into her adolescence as the years passed. She had a revelation. These visions were not some anonymous shadowy figures but evil demons sent by lucifer to kill her. She proclaimed herself lucifer's arch enemy. Though she hid this title from those around her by the age of twelve sherry had read the bible from front to back and was particularly interested. In the book of revelation the final book of the christian bible known for its strange imagery and apocalyptic predictions schreiner was fascinated by the concepts of the end of days and the arrival of the anti christ but despite shriners deep immersion in biblical studies. She hated her religion. She disagreed with much of christianity and brandon herself a nonconformist becoming the black sheep of her family but sherry shifted her biblical prophecy studies to the side while she focused on higher education she dreamed of pursuing a career in television news broadcasting
"facebook" Discussed on Social Media Marketing Talk Show
"There are rumors that facebook is postponing exchange I haven't seen that confirmed. So let me say one more thing for clarity because it might come up with people who know a little bit more. There's facebook Pixel, and now is everyone knows about the pixel that's loaded in the browser and most of the issues were going from this twenty eight day to seven day has to do with the. Inability of certain browsers to allow or just the rejection of of third party clicky longer dates. Nets basically in you covered at the beginning. I. Think like last year facebook started rolling out with a call conversion API used to be called. The service are Pixel Api they're calling the conversions API. So this was something. Anticipated by Facebook and the conversion AP I think you're going to see greater Wants the barriers to getting it setup calmed down significantly such that your typical you know small business can integrate it. So that is facebook. Response to being able to get past the seventy third party. Cookie issue. The adoption of the in. API. You see more of it with really large advertisers but. It's a technical hurdle so it hasn't really trickled Dale. You're starting to see like shopper fi starting rolling out their integration is probably what I would call it. A version one leads some more iterations before it gets to the level that people expect. So what you're seeing now is the fact that this this seventy clicky issue here in there's going to be immediate hindrance. For reporting but then there's this other solution conversion API that's been around for some time in as it gets increased adoption than it'll compensate for that. So yes, the official announcement is the deadline for you know shifting to the Sabbath. Day, and then there are rumors some say I got it from my facebook grab. Got This person that got us from this person that they're postponing it until twenty twenty one I haven't seen yet in official announcement postponing it to twenty two but I have heard through. which is how we also heard about it as well. You got it from an article and that's where we're. So I really appreciate you going into that because we did have some questions in the comments here asking why they'd made this change. So I'm glad you gave us up is that information elaborated more because it is a big deal so whether or not this is rolling out now or later we know that it will roll out our if it hasn't already are there any other actions or any specific action said advertisers creating campaigns today right now maybe next week, what should they be making? What adjustment should they be making to their adspend in light of this possible may be happening maybe has happened just right. So the important thing to remember is if you have access to your historical data. Exported so that you can have the reporting available while it's still Beta like I I said for most of the accounts that we have I was still able to access the data. Wait you intend determine is what the shift between seven and twenty eight days looks like for your account and if you can look back over time, you can see it's at changes throughout the year because some businesses have seasonal fluctuations. That's important to know..
Augmented Audio: A Catalyst for Revolutionary Creators' Tools
"Are you guys think of this trend and phrase augmented audio, which means different things to different people but the idea that you can actually to your point connie much like video has many layers you can actually bring more and more layers into audio as well. You guys have any quick thoughts on us how many? But that really just leads me to the belief audio today I was still this more setback experience. It's very much like a one way consumption experience the same way that we consume television or the same way that we consume movies and kind of like more youtube live streaming kind of format hasn't really arrived mainstream audio yet, and so even just capturing the comments the feedback to podcast like that kind of content is not well harnessed today. So there are so many more layers around the listener feedback or interacting with other listeners or interacting with the creator. A lot of fun should be added on and layered onto audio. Right now at least doesn't exist it doesn't even necessarily be fun. I mean that's a creator I found the news. When you guys rolled out, your polls feature to be quite interesting because we just had the debates here in the United States and I literally was like I, wonder if a lot of the political news shows should do like their own polling as part of their audio experience I mean, it's just fun. It's instant feedback. We started with pulse, which is both a safe and constructively to bring feedback you mentioned the consumers, the listeners talking to each other immense in the crater talking to the listener we try to focus on the crater and what tools does the create a one and actually not just for having fun. But to your point Sono to be a better crater what information do You want from your hand and would make Egypt crater to produce another episode, for example, and so we started with pulse, which is one way to get clear answers on questions you have, and we want to continue in this way focusing not really on listening to listener conversations. I mean, you have instagram facebook twitter there's lots of places to go and talk to other users. But there aren't a lot of places to have good conversations with creators and thank you focus on craters. There's also a huge opportunity to expand the funnel of craters. If you look at trends in video, lots of the top trending youtube videos are actually reaction videos where people are watching video and showcasing a reaction and Tiktok is all about remixing. There's a lot of great audio content out there today. That if you talk about augmented audio, you could take a podcast and then have another person share their thoughts directly just like a sports broadcaster even wanting directly on what's happening in the audio whether it's music or even another podcast you have these two extremes like the old world broadcast, one way media, and then on the other extreme would gaming worthy interactivity the experience being broadcasted anything you're actually creating it. And then you have this thing in between and I think audio needs to move towards interactivity, and like I said, there is basically a cheat where you can look at other types of media. As soon as you add a feedback loop, the creative gets a chance to improve.

"That word empowerment. Is. Interesting. For her watching the videos makes her feel powerful more powerful, anyway than cutting in our another chuck. Of course, there was always another way she would have had to wait for the legislative session figure out committee schedules drive forty miles to the state capital sign up to speak, wait her turn and then testify for like two minutes in front of a room full of intimidating lawmakers. But instead, she can watch Patrick stand outside the Capitol for her supporting. Him feels much more like helping out a friend Caroline, told me one time about this thing that happened in her neighborhood she immediately wanted Patrick to know about. Well in this neighborhood, we had somebody tried to steal an engine. The thief was held at gunpoint until the cops got there. Now that to me was very responsible. He did not shoot anybody just said you're going to stay here. Don't move. I've got the police on the way and he was taken into custody and everything was fine. You called Patrick About Fan. Yeah, I did I called him and he actually answered the phone. I mean, you know there's no hero worshipped there but I was surprised that he did because I was just leave a voicemail. Oh I did I said that I really wasn't expecting you to pick up your phone? Okay. What's on your mind and I told him he's like, okay. Cool. You know so it it was all very. Very, professional, very cordial dot I mean he's a he's a decent guy. It also strikes me as the opposite of your interaction with the NRA Lisa lives in Atlanta. So it's natural for her to focus on Patrick's group Georgia gun owners. Since I'm in Kansas City I pay more attention to the door groups and Missouri and Iowa. I sent facebook messages to a bunch of people who comment on the videos Erin door makes with Missouri firearms coalition and only one person wrote back John Burke. We ended up talking on the phone Abou- maybe doing an interview. He was polite but cautious. John is in a militia called three percenters and he didn't really want the interview to be about that. Also, you know people in the world, don't trust the media and in some ways. That's fair. It's true that a lottery don't know much about guns. They call on air fifteen assault rifle use the word clip when they mean magazine and for some reason seem to think semiautomatic is an important word when talking about a handgun. Drives me crazy too. So. Anyway I told him. It's my job to cover guns I. Like hunting. I even used to be in the army jumped out of aeroplanes and shot lots of guns. I think I can give you a fair shake. John agreed to the interview and invited me to his home near. Lake of the ozarks. Looking back I was feeling pretty good about talking my way into his interview, but as it turned out. It wasn't really me convinced them to do it. It was Aaron Door. Just for radio purposes here. Can You? Say and spell your first and last name. First Name Is John J. O. H. N.. Last name is Burke B. as in boy, you are key. And, just for clarification is currently going to be participating. Carlos. John's wife. They moved from the Chicago suburbs to Missouri when they retired recently fell down but was that a metal plate against Thatcherite right there. Like being outdoors, there's John even set up a little pistol range in the backyard. Three five, seven, ten, and fifteen yards. Marked Out So what what? What's what's back that way? Anybody? Any neighbors nothing at all? Yeah. nope. Are you recording now? Okay. The rowboat they use upside down that we inherited. The. Big Joke is. When they come confiscate my guns, I lost it in a boating accident. So that. Little Rinky rowboat. That's the SS gun loss. They said, they barely watch TV anymore, but they are big fans of Aaron door. Whenever, they get a facebook notification for one of his videos Missouri firearms coalition is having a life watch party. Okay. Everything else is on pause. If, they get a notification that a report wants to do an interview. They check with Aaron to see what he thinks. When tell me that I'm like? Oh Really. Yes. Yes. Yes. Because we check you out to. Do Diligence. Verify told you right upfront I will. Research dig and pull threads see now. So that was the first thing he did and. was was chuck with Erin. Day but he got back to me and if I did something like that with the NRA. He would have been go away, leave me alone. It would never happen. Yeah. Just caroline recur in. Georgia. Saying she's fed up with the NRA. The burks are not happy about, Wayne? Lapierre and his wardrobe wallets important for him to look professional on look. Good. I don't think as a member of the NRA my money is being. Best used. By him buying a fifty thousand dollar suit. Is using it to establish on the back. Yeah. I like how every time we hear about those fancy suits get more expensive. Yeah. Anyway as we're sitting in their living room, John tells me they started to get interested in guns back in Illinois. We went out, we bought a couple of handguns to take the range. I got a nine millimeter, nineteen eleven. She got a nine millimeter polymer handgun. and. We go to the range. Illinois law is really stupid. You've got to unload it. You've gotTa make sure it can't fire. The ammunition has be completely separate than the firearm they both have to be locked. In separate containers. All these regulations you have to follow the Rangers three blocks from our house. Why are we busting our butts doing all this work to go three blocks did just found the stuff to be really onerous and they didn't want to deal with it anymore the Second Amendment is very clear shall not be infringed period. It's not shall not be.
"facebook" Discussed on Skullduggery
"On skulduggery Roger McNamee Venture Capitalist Rock, musician one of the original investors in facebook Roger Welcome back to skulduggery. It's a great pleasure to be here so so much to talk about. The has developed on the facebook front since you were last on last year and right now we have this extraordinary advertisers boycott of facebook over a lot of the material content that they are continuing to let on the platform that the critics say pushes misinformation and hate speech. What do you make of? Of this advertiser boycott so full disclosure Michael I am an advisor to both the CEOS of the Anti Defamation League HDL which is the leader of that campaign and common sense media, which is one of the other founders, and so I have been involved in it in a as an adviser from the beginning, and you'll recall when I came in your go. I was. Promoting my book docked, which essentially told the tale of my transformation from being thirty four year true believer in the power of Technology Hands People's lives to not just a skeptic, but an activist, trying to make people aware of threat, and what stop hate for profit is all about. Is engaging advertisers against what I believe has been the core problem from the beginning. which is that if you look at the design? Of the platforms that sell advertising sort timing here by Youtube facebook instagram twitter, there are others, but those are the four big ones, those platforms they need your attention in order to succeed, and because they're able to control the content for each individual person, because they have all this data about us and can find tune it. They have the ability to apply every lesson psychology that's ever been created, and they have the ability as a result to essentially manipulate our choices, and through that to manipulate our attention and our behavior. And that's a problem because if you think about a system where you're trying to get engagement, the best way to do that is to scare people to make them outrage and what does that? Hate speech, disinformation and conspiracy theories so turns out that those three kinds of content are not incidental to the BUSINESSMA. Those three kinds of content are actually the lubricant that makes them all work. There are relatively small percentage of everything that goes on there, but the significance that they have in terms of people being on there. What they care about is gigantic and the problem of debt, and the reason it stopped paid for property exists is because it gives small numbers of really extreme people. A disproportionate voice in our. So Roger let me. Let me ask you this actually before I. Do I guess I need to make a disclosure of our own. Which is Yahu News? which is part of Verizon media is owned by. Verizon and Verizon is participating in this boycott. It's it's temporarily paused. It's advertising you or I think I, really big companies. Join it. Thank you. All right bye-bye. I don't think either of us was decision maker in. The process. Are Above our pay grade and I think just to elaborate I think our CEO Hans. Vesper basically said that there was content that was appearing alongside our brands that was not up to our standards, and so they decided to pause advertising on the site, but I guess the point of the boycott is to try to finally change facebook's behavior and to change the kind of incentive structure that exists because what they've always done with. They've always talked about is A. A term that I hadn't heard until I came to work for a tech company content moderation, which is to say, we'll just keep the stuff off the site. We'll just whack a mole. Get it off the site, but you say that just doesn't work, and here's what the real issues, so you ask. What the goals campaigner in a perfect world we would succeed in persuading I facebook, and then youtube twitter instagram to change their business model so that hateful contact. Is Not amplified in a way. That harms people. The First Amendment is there to allow people to say things that are awful. That's not what we're talking about here. What we're talking about here is the fact that these guys take these voices, and then amplify the because that's good for their bottom line, and so what we want advertisers to to recognize that they are complicit. Their dollars support this and bet know if you will facebook has been on a sixteen year apology tour that I borrowed that from the Great North. Carolina scholars aimed to FECI who talks about you know things. Go wrong at facebook all the time and they always sit there i. they deny it than they deflect. It may tried to defuse it finally when they're forced to it policy. They promised to do better. Better and then they literally go right back to doing whatever it was there before and that his worked, and it's worked through the twenty sixteen presidential election it worth through the UK brexit election. It worked after genocide in Myanmar that the UN said was uniquely responsible for name on it worked through the Christ church terrorism, right? They've got away with everything by just apologizing, so can I just ask you Roger? You believe that this is just on Zuckerberg's part, a Feign, a cynical ploy, and that there is really no real principles at stake here for him. He always says that we're we don't. We don't feel we should be the arbiters of truth. You just don't buy that. No I think it's different than that. I think mark has a different value system than I have and what we're really talking about. Here is a debate between value systems in March value system, connecting everyone on one platform, and he has three billion people, so there are more people on facebook who are active users of it than our adherence to Christianity there are twice as many people active facebook is. There are people in China. Markets earned goes hey. Are you guys to tell me what to do. I have created this amazing things connected all these people and I. Do it my way, and you have no right to judge me or Chris and my response to that is you know I think we should have a debate about that and I may lose the debate. Let's face it I've been at it for four years. Haven't won a damn thing yet. Okay, but the debate gets more intense, and this is the first time that the people who dollars support the economic engine if I would argue that over sixteen years there's only been one crisis mark faced that threatened to spin out of control and that was Cambridge Analytica. An incredibly. They were able to put the genie back in the bottle on that. And there is a meeting going on today with the principles of the Stop, hate, for profit campaign with Mark Zuckerberg shells amber, Chris Cox who runs the product of facebook, and presumably a long string of Latin, necks and black people who are not actually executives facebook, but will be there to lend. Moral support. And that will be an important step in them with their damage. Control Right. They're going to try to somehow. Get everybody to leave that meeting saying we're making progress or facebook. Try Right so that they can go the advertiser saying there's nothing to worry about. You can go back to advertise and the issue here is. FACEBOOK has created what I think is legitimate the greatest advertising platform in the history of media. And so every advertiser would like to get back on their. They'd like to hate speech to go away, but they don't want. The other characteristics of facebook to go in the problem is I. Don't think he can.
"facebook" Discussed on Gadget Lab Podcast
"Hear that a lot from our colleagues at wired they remember like with great detail the last time they were on the show such as when Brian Barrett comes back on. He's like it's been seventeen months since I was on the show through. This is that we always want to have our colleagues on the show and we're so happy that you're here and when was the last time you are on the show by the way the late fifties were very very early to podcasting? We were doing podcasts. Back when some people weren't even listening to terrestrial Radio Okay Stephen. Let's get right to it. You were here because you wrote a book. It's called facebook the inside story. I have it right here in front of me folks. This is a tome. I don't know if you just heard that thud on the table. But this is like you could lift weights with this thing You spent years on this book. Stephen and you had a fair amount of access to people like Mark Zuckerberg and other executives like Sheryl Sandberg in the process. It's a fantastic book. What compelled you to start writing? This book did so. I can't even pinpoint the date. It was August twenty seventh two thousand fifteen when Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his feed. We put up story up saying a billion people had been on facebook the day before. And this wasn't how many people signed up for the services like a billion people in twenty four hours had been on facebook and I thought about that. Had that ever happened before like the World Cup gets a billion people but that's not an interactive network. Where someone could post something in theory you can get to everybody and old people's individual networks were intertwined there so I know that his ambitions were huge and facebook was doing very well but the reality of it made me think while this is something new how I tell the story. I've got to tell the story. This is my story and to tell who did it how they did it. And what it means and you had written a book about Google previously. Talk a little bit about that experience and how it compared to your writing of the facebook story. My previous book was called in the plex was about Google and the process was similar in that I went to them and said I want to write a book. give me access to your people. you don't get to say anything about the contents you'll see it when it's done and I thought it would be pretty much a similar process. I would write this. Try to put together a narrative of the the story of Google where people will be able to understand Google after they read the book and the story. You know almost like a novel would have a climaxing. We'd have tension and attention in this store or the Google story was it's experienced China where it went through this moral dilemma And I thought this'll be pulling similar and facebook. Maybe THEIR MORAL DILEMMA. Might be this Program they had Internet Dot Org. Were they spread around the world and did something was kind of unfair competitors where they would give away free data if you use facebook and if you were competing with facebook People would pay for your data so you facebook would basically get a head start all over the world as it turned out Internet dot org was the least of facebook. Doing the course of this book because It's actually a year from me to start researching after that post because I had to convince facebook to do it and get my affairs in order and The first thing I did was I went to Africa with Mark Zuckerberg to Nigeria He was treated like a hero. I later realized this was peak. Facebook things were going so great. Everyone love Mark Zuckerberg Though facebook how does issues was still pretty popular and then the election came in November. Two Thousand Sixteen and the BIT flips. Everything changed and for the next three years and to the current day but when I was doing the book Facebook was in hot water. Deservedly so so. The book really became an exercise in to saying. Here's what happened to facebook and I'm going back in the past that. Tell you how this happened. What went wrong and why it went wrong. down to pinpointing individual incidents where facebook went down the path perdition. Well you actually go all the way back in the book which I really appreciated because by getting into you know where facebook came from and how it was created in the environment in which has created gives us a lot of context about why the product was so important to people so illustrate pretty clearly in the book that the the idea of building a social network was not a new idea. There were things that came before Like six degrees and Runs through in my space and things that people were actually engaging in You know it was during the period when friend was moving from a noun to verb Right so all those other social networks fizzled. None of them took off. What was it in particular about facebook that allowed it to not only thrive but to completely dominate. I think that the roots of it really were facebook and I did not try to connect everyone in the world. It was a college network and it was something that Mark Zuckerberg in particular wanted to see happen. You know the most successful products are often things. The people build for themselves so he was a college student. He understood the way college students interact with each other and he was building project after project in his sophomore year. Not going to classes much and a lot of them had to do with providing utility for the college experience one of his earlier programs was something the web. When you looked at a class. You'll be able to see what friends of yours had signed up for the class so you could hang out with them. The class steeler notes other kinds of stuff and For the facebook which is what it was called when it was launched in February. Two Thousand Four. It was a way that people can learn more about each other and maybe find other people in their college community or they wanted to get to know better and find out what was up with them. So if your friend had a bunch of other friends that you wanted to get in touch with learn more about them you could use that because he was able to fix the dials and be really effective in building. This initial network. He had a head start. I believe in making a product that people would want to use when he extended it out to the world at large so I think the idea that it was constrained At first led to its success and being unconstrained and unleashed upon the world. Later on I have always argued that the like button is the most important instrument in facebook's journey. I'm glad you serve because I devoted quite a lot of space to the you really did So I WANNA talk about it a little bit but I i. I want you to tell the story of how it came to be because it didn't appear it sort of stumbled into existence right The like button started when A couple of Facebook's engineers wanted a more expressive way too quickly comment on a post Instead of saying Reading a whole comment you know you go in one little flick whether you approve of it or not and Facebook I didn't like this idea of Berg. Didn't like this idea because he felt that. If you had the ability to respond to something with one click. You wouldn't make a comment so various people have taken over the project and tried to push it I'd be different names at first. Then they finally settled on like and It wasn't until they were able to run an experiment. Prove that when you release the like button and you know they did it. In a couple of countries Comments would actually go up because it was a good signal. The Post should be circulated more gave it a higher ranking and people's newsfeed but I think the real significance came when they spread the like button out through pass facebook's boundaries onto the web they got millions and millions of people with websites and businesses to put the like button on their pages and that gave facebook. This data of WHO's doing what and you know On the web and basically facebook became throughout the world and that really was a signal to facebook that their business model eventually will be built around that data. So I really think that was the start of the big data cascade. That would come to signify what facebook was in a business sense and And also in a sense where they got into some trouble later on the interesting to think about algorithms now. The word algorithms become such a part of our vernacular to the point where people kind of hand wave at it or some people joke about not really knowing what it means. But it's this idea that all these data signals are creating these algorithms that inform the things that we see and experience on the Internet and this is really one of the earliest like most consumer-friendly versions of those signals just constantly telling facebook. Who what you're into and how. That's that's ultimately going to impact your experience on the web and is also going to tell a lot about yourself so I talk about. How a researcher not at facebook outside of facebook determined that With think fifteen likes if you see someone likes for fifteen likes. You'll know as much about him as you know someone you know casually and thirty like she'll know him as much as no one of your real friends With a hundred likes you'll know really as much as you know someone really well one hundred likes. You'll be parallel with that and with three hundred lakes. Facebook will know as much about you as you know your spouse. This is the personality test guys rates. Stillman Kaczynski Yeah exactly. You're up to it. Yeah so David. Still Stillman and Michael Kaczynski was the well you know. Oh yeah right still well. Well yes it's still And Michael Kaczynski were these researchers at Cambridge University which turns out to be a center for A lot of activity around this because They're colleague a guy named Alexander. Kogan was the person who got Cambridge Analytica involved in whole story And it was you know. He tried to bring in cousins Kaczynski and still well into his project and They didn't like it in part because came genetic wasn't GonNa pay them enough money and Kozinski later turned out. This hasn't been reported before To the person who dropped the dime on the whole project and I told The Guardian that this thing was going on while another massively important development and facebook's history was news feed in the book you talk about how one of your earliest meetings Suck Coburg. If not the first meeting you had with him he he was noodling. This this was like in the works but they did not mention it to you know now well. He hardly mentioned anything on first reading. I met him in two thousand six entrepreneur Ya. I thought I was reading a story about what was called Web. Two O at the time where user generated content was starting to appear on the web and heard about. This company was really successful in the college market The companies that we were focusing on in this Newsweek story. Where my space youtube and flicker But you know I thought it would be good to talk to him and get a couple of quotes From him and I arranged the meet him..

And its relationship with Publicans Democrats like to call the Republic Rats. Not just just Joshua folks But over the last few years Republicans have emerged somewhat surprisingly to be before closer allies to facebook than the Democrats have love I say surprising because there's a very strong bond historically between The Obama Administration and Democrats overall and facebook and and that has frayed significantly since trump has been elected. And now we're at a place where you're seeing Democratic presidential candidates speaking out openly against facebook talking about regulating it breaking it up all the sort and Republicans. They're a bit mixed but definitely are much more on the side of protecting facebook for interesting self interested interested reasons. Then I'm talking to Kevin McLaughlin about Ginny Rometty. CEO IBM who earlier this week IBM announced she was stepping down. So Kevin and I have a look back at the genie ready era at. IBM The things that worked things. That didn't a lot more talked about Watson cloud computing and also what the company looks. It's like going forward. So that's that's the episode. It's a good one. Nothing applies.

So we could bring clean energy from one end to the country to the other Republican lawmakers who control the Senate are unlikely to support a two trillion dollar infrastructure Bill. They've warned that a major new federal infrastructure program would increase the federal deficit. Now, our main story this morning. Facebook's new redesign Mark Zuckerberg introduced the changes at the first day of the company's annual developer conference f eight though the most obvious change for many of us would be the removal of the blue bar. That's been a top Facebook site since it was launched. There are a whole host of other changes being introduced Mr. Zuckerberg was clear about the reason for the changes privacy. No, look, I get that a lot of people aren't sure that we're serious about this. I know that we don't exactly have the strongest reputation on privacy right now to put it lightly. But I'm committed to doing this. Well, and to starting a new chapter for our products for more about what exactly will be changing Charlie Turner, spoke to our Facebook reporter, Jeff Horowitz from the conference in San Francisco now, Jeff in addition to the replacement or the disappearance of the blue icon what what are other changes that Facebook is making to the site. I hear some of them revolve around encouraging less public discourse. But more group conversations, I don't think it's going as far as encouraging less public discourse. But giving people an alternative to just sort of putting it all out there for the whole internet is definitely a priority for the company and something that Mark soccer Vic's been talking about for months, and it's very central to the redesign. So a big thing is groups and through what Mark Zuckerberg described as hundreds of small changes groups are going to be brought more central to the Facebook experience. I'm basically you're going to be encouraging people to take the conference. Stations and connections into smaller and moderated by administrators forums. And that's something that they believe is going to connect people for real and also perhaps might have some benefits in terms of the content on the site. What other changes is Facebook made don't some of them involve the video and photo feature stories. Yes, the stories has been a thing that that is going to be. I mean, it's been it's sort of featured prominently as kind of next Facebook's next big thing for advertising. General spin said it on the earnings calls for a while. And definitely there's no exception today. FA developer conference, that's a pretty central thing pitching. And so there's kind of a convergence of stories on kind of a lot of the platforms. It seems like that's part of what Mark Zuckerberg is has been saying he's interested in which is sort of converging. The products toward a similar set of features not stripping them entirely of their own identities. But it was making him. So they're interoperable and allow users to do many of the. Same things and a general question. Why are these changes happening? I mean is there some deeper reason for this? It's pretty easy to see the focus on groups is being part of response to some of the public criticism Facebook, Scott, and I sort of content on its site and to some degree. It's, you know, this is a philosophical ideological position taken by Mark Zuckerberg that he really does believe in the internet's ability to form communities and Facebook's role in that. But there are some invent advantages here they're going to be moderators. We're going to be a little more frontline in terms of regulating content, and that might take a bit of the of the burden off of sei's book. They're rolling out a whole bunch of new tools to let moderators see what problematic speech in behavior is occurring in their forums. And they're also saying that they're going to rate groups, according to their propensity to share misinformation or, you know, get into unpleasant behavior and.

"Early two thousands this was the big question how will the government step in and either breakup microsoft or regulate them and to me there were a lot of echoes of that in this hearing this past week with microsoft the whole notion was essentially they impose rules on them about how they would use windows to get into other markets and and not be able to do that but with facebook how would this happen like what could radiation of facebook look like i don't think we got an answer to that question this week and i i wish that we had a few different ideas came up gdp are which is the european union's new sweeping privacy protections came up a lot and zakar said he thought there were parts of that that got right other parts that needed more examining the honest ads act came up i think that was the only piece of legislation that he actively supported which basically just brings political ads on facebook in line with the way they're regulated on television and radio but any other time that regular nation came up he had this what seemed like kind of a script where philosophically he endorsed the idea of course our data needs to be protected of course we need to be thinking critically about these issues but he really really was careful not to endorse specific legislation on the european regulation the gdp are they have something called the right to be forgotten in other words you can essentially trigger something that takes all of your personal information your personal data at least the aerobically out of these databases is there any indication that we could be headed there in the us with services like facebook.

"Is that the experimental everything so there is nothing in human behavior that facebook does not think is appropriate subject full experimentation manipulation what was this ways of looking at facebook by the way is to go into it not as user but as a potential appetizer and when you do that you see different face the offer encounter a beautifully designed at automated system which is designed entirely to help you target your message at groups of people and it's absolutely magical it's a wonderful piece of software design once you get into it you begin to realize how we got here because among other things the software will make helpful suggestions but other audiences you might not have thought and that that was back a long way but it but essentially you never look at facebook the same way again if you've been in advertiser potential advertiser one of the problems that academic institutions have in exploring this of course you get ethical considerations quite popularizing really quickly i mean for example academics could do testing to see how leather say anti semitic messages managed to get targeted but you can get that passed an ethics board but it does happen and that's the real revelation about this stuff so do you think we take the second half of the scandal outrage at the moment which is this much of influence these two elections trump and now the stories about brexit to with breakfast moved onto this other firm.

"What is it was interesting but let's get to the point we are not talking about massage about may's book which we talked about one or two times previously on this program talked about a lot of the issues that have come to the forefront this week but what was so interesting about sort of dividing take very sort of self cystic lens to this you know i was i was almost it was it was this whole thing's been very weird so just as everyone knows facebook cameras is alleged to have data from facebook that they acquired in violation the facebook terms of service and their and facebook knew about this a while ago they said delete the state are the like we did and then apparently they didn't and facebook now wants to you know there's there's been a big brouhaha to say the least probably the one of the biggest brewers running facebook that we've seen about the state and what's so kind of weird about it is is there's no there's no new news here there's nothing there's nothing i mean i guess cambridge acquired it in the way they did and allegedly didn't delete it is is something but even that is not very surprising when she back up and understand the circumstances of this case it's kind of crazy i feel like they've been folks and myself included kind of frustrated at the way that facebook was treating this dada for so long and we're coming at it threes lleida and all of a sudden as a result of the context it suddenly snapped into focus and it's become it's just it's gone straight into the guy and i guess it just goes to show that how much the context of i mean this is something that i think is consistent with something that you and i have both talked about which is the important of narratives and i think the idea of the data leaking in the absence of the narrative probably didn't upset people so much as.

"Or first amendment issues no i don't think we are i think you know for this particular issue fortunately the federal trade commission actually got a consent decree against facebook in twenty eleven that specified certain things they were not supposed to do they were not supposed to make misrepresentations about privacy or security they were supposed to require obtain affirmative express consent from their users for a lot of data uses and i think that as we further investigate this we may see serious fines finally for a company that you i think has managed to avoid regulation in for far too long sell some of our listeners are reacting really struggling with what they should do and how a facebook affects their lives andy on twitter rights is it definitely feels inescapable of been wanting to quit for years because of how invasive it is but it's also become essential to stay connected with friends and family especially since moving halfway across the country mike wrote on our website facebook is not a part of the infrastructure you can exist on the internet without ever needing facebook frank what do you think what do you think people ought to do to be able to stay engage in used social media for the great tool that it is but also protect themselves well i think there are better and worse forms of social media so for example no i used to be on facebook a great deal of time i still am on it but say i've moved more to instagram you know or things like that it's like if you can maybe find forms of social media where maybe there is not so much of a threat potential i think we've seen a lot of the threats of facebook so being criticized throughout this hour but i think ultimately though this is a regulatory matter i've heard both emily and ben talk about the need for regulation i completely agree because the problem is that even if your facebook facebook maybe on you in the sense that they have shadow profiles so this is a bit like the equifax situation right nobody can choose not to be have a file with equifax so we have to regulate them and i think the same thing is going on here is on the line from providence rhode island.

"Third party applications to get this data from people's friends without their consent millions of people's information was harvested by third parties to which we do not know their names or how it's used so though though this isn't going on any more that in for information is out there and i would think would be safe to assume that people are using it in all sorts of ways that we don't understand so for those of us who are not tech savvy what should we be concerned about or what should we be doing now to protect ourselves ben well there are a number of things that one can do modifying the privacy settings on facebook but ultimately it's important to keep in mind that a company like facebook has every incentive to bury those settings to make them difficult to understand and it will never give you the option to opt out of its business model right it can only make tweaks around the edges so i think the most important thing that people who are concerned about this could do is to contact their representatives to actually build some political momentum around this issue because this ultimately needs to be a regulatory solution yeah and i just add you know the business model of facebook people have known that it was kind of gross in the way that it would target ads to you and we were grossed out by seeing micro targeted ads that new let's say that i have a son and that he is going to be three soon and we're gonna have a birthday party and all the ads are about that and people found that disquieting but i think what may impel people to actually contact the representatives now is realizing that the exact same mechanisms that allow people to serve us those ads are the mechanisms that allowed russian propagandists and companies like cambridge analytic to actually influence the democratic processes in nations and those are two very different the stakes are much higher in one of those scenarios but it's the exact same technology and the basis of which is facebook's.

"Um it in the newsfeed it made me think much more about the question of of happiness of satisfaction of mental health than it did about news about fake news about propaganda about hate speech i tend to think that facebook has the people at facebook have tended to ignore or downgrade the rather obvious influence that the medium has had on our public sphere you know they're they're they're not comfortable with the fact that human beings perform politics on facebook they would rather we did less of that they they're not comfortable with the fact that they don't seem to have an answer because the problem is no answer to promoting uh work from a set of responsible publications and downgrading work that comes from publications that you or i or people who you know read slate subscribe to sleep i guess would think of as response of right they they don't want to be in that editorial role it makes them feel really really uncomfortable really weird but they love the abstract they love talking about meaningful social interactions the problem is the word meaningful is meaningless so so just sent a threat to track a little bit i mean of course second order fair a democracy to properly function people have to have access said good information so that they can vote meaningfully as meaning that word is and you know that's why we have laws about media ownership in and you know dominance and things like that when it comes to how we get information and and facebook has largely evaded a lot of those regulations because they're not traditional right there is a social platform one thing that they came up for me though in what you're saying is that facebook i think it's really resident for me that the think of facebook as a place it doesn't want to encourage political communication because i look at how many activists that i've seen um you know particularly black lives matter activists that that have you know been kicked off facebook put in facebook jail for a short amount of time because they were talking about very difficult issues or they were making a post that address keno dear white people or something like that and and and so it's not just a matter of bought set or a matter of fake news and your feet.
