"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.

However, critics say Hong Kong's leader is airbrushing. What's become the criminalization?

Google joins a group of major tech companies in pushing back against Hong Kong’s new security law
"Welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me, Andrew Malone when China imposed a new, security law on Hong Kong it doubtless understood that they would be widespread anger, and perhaps even actual consequences and calculated that the cost to his one it could meet. The bill has now begun to arrive. Several giants have announced that they will pause cooperation with any requests for user data from Hong, Kong police including such behemoths as telegram, Google twitter, facebook and WHATSAPP in a perhaps more dramatic development, voguish video up. TIKTOK has indicated that it will stop operations in Hong Kong, entirely one join with more from Hong Kong by Monaco's Hong. Kong Bureau chief chambers. Joins first of all I was intrigued by this announcement that they would pose cooperation with Hong. Kong's police. Do we know what kind of cooperation was underway before? We don't know exactly and it was quite funny that one of the APPS you didn't mention signal said they would stop cooperating. If only they they'd started cooperating in the first place, and they said they don't hold any data, so they wouldn't have any to handover. So We're not quite sure what kind of data the Hong Kong. Police Force has been requesting from these companies in the past. And what they've said is that they're going to pause any cooperation. In to assess what I guess, what this security bill means, and what what it means if they do handover this kind of data to the police I mean. Loads of people use WHATSAPP and that's. That's got end to end encryption so It's not clear what kind of information you know. Facebook, the owner of what's up. What's sense of what the tech giant's trying to figure out here? Are they acting out of genuine concern at what China is doing, or is this an attempt I guess especially in talks case to be perceived as being on the right side. I think that you could say that that being on the fence right now because they're in the same position as most of us in Hong Kong. We don't really still know what this law. Requires them what it involves. It's a very. Very thin piece of legislation for something as dramatic as a as a national security law in we're talking thirty odd pages and sixty six articles. And in those articles require the the Hong Kong government set up certain bodies, and then those bodies and need to pass certain implementation rules to bring this into being now. Those are starting to come out, so we're starting to see what this might mean. And so one of those rules came out yesterday, which says know police can. Search a premises without a warrant. If it's to do with his National Security Law which has got obviously alarming for a lot of people. So. Companies like facebook and Google that they just waiting to see. What this actually means. And so they don't want to be seen to be handing over. Information right now to the government. If that's going to lead to prosecutions, and as you said, that would definitely leave, leave them on the wrong side of of public opinion at at least outside of China all the tech giant's also concerned with trying to balance that against the prospect of upsetting Beijing. Well know they're all banned in China. The the one tech giant that. Is Absent from that list is apple, and that's the one tech giant that is allowed to operate inside of mainland China. So. This is not a matter of them, not wanting to upset Beijing I think this is more a matter than not wanting to upset bag global audience. Because obviously this. This whole thing has been huge news around the world. And these tech giants have nothing to lose in terms of upsetting. Beijing so I definitely seem see, this is holding onto all pleasing that their audience around the world, and at the end of the day Hong. Kong is a city of seven and a half million people whereas you know, these companies have hundreds of millions of users around the world so. As as we kind of seeing Hong, Kong might just just find bearing the brunt of a lot of these things. You said earlier that you and everybody else in Hong. Kong was still trying to figure out precisely what this new security law is going to mean. Have you noticed that having any direct effect on day to day life already whether that's been in actual implementation or manifestations of at all in reaction to it in terms of protest demonstration etc.. There's been zero protests. I mean this. This seems to be one of those piece of legislation that has. Is having more of an impact. On People's. Minds and their conversations rather than any big physical changes, there'd be no protests, but for the majority of this year because of covid nineteen and they're still not allowed to go ahead. Because of the covid nineteen restrictions, so we'll, we'll have to wait and see if if when those get raised and police, perhaps do grant authority for. Illegal. Protest Rally with huge numbers of people will turn out, but as of today, and since the law came into effect this time almost on last week. It's been very normal on the streets in Hong Kong. Everyone's been going about their business. But there I mean been just news coming out every day. That's just causing more and more alarm like the the the libraries taking books off the shelves to to see whether they fall foul of this security bill and this latest news today that that Tiktok the is is pulling out of Hong, Kong, and pulling its APP off of the APP store. Even, though that's I, that's a bit of a red herring because it is after Chinese. Company and I imagine this is more a corporate strategy than than anything else it does. Continue to to raise alarm bells here, but when you when you go out on the streets. It's it's very. It's like Hong Kong in two thousand eighteen. You know before before all the protests last year, so it appears very normal, but I think the damage being done here is very much in people's minds James Chime busy now Hong Kong Bureau. Thanks for joining us. You're listening to the briefing on monocle twenty. Four.

Facebook Twitter Google are among the companies that have said They would suspend operations in that region to look more closely at the law.

We've worked on the issue for a long time, he added, citing the administration's prohibition against embattled China Telcom. Hallway. Now the apples recent become a vehicle for political activism, of course, after President Trump's official Twitter account invited supporters to request tickets, you know that Oklahoma campaign in Tulsa lot of tech talkers were requesting tickets and with no intentions of showing

The OnePlus NordVPN (with TK Bay)
"Tk Bag on the show. Super happy to have you back. And finally using the setup that I have to say you inspired me to get. Okay! Using Stream Yard Yeah No. Stream Yard and. This is actually my first time trying it, which is why we're not live right now. I'm just using it to record some trying to see. I'm trying to get my feet wet with it, but here's the thing like we have our cameras here. We've been using our cameras for the for the video feeds I. Actually bought a new Mike, which is why I don't have the face Mike for once. That's true. Actually I just realized that. Yeah, yeah, when you said that it's like I. Don't normally see that little. The wire I mean it's a nice Mike. By the way, it's a very professional secret service almost, but you know. It's definitely cool the audio on that. It was always great. The only thing is I've got this Mike. Because I'm using it for literally. Everything I finally got sick of the way that my audio sounded. I know that in the comments. No one cares but when I'm editing, my own videos I'm just like okay like it just doesn't sound like me. You know exactly. So I fell down a youtube rabbit hole and I got a Mike, and then I got an audio interface. I'm just GonNa like nothing is on right now, but if I hit this button, this would be the PS four. Okay. I'm assuming you're running through the atom. Bomb like anatomy finally. Nice! Okay, that's right. That's right. We talked about it a little. You mentioned you found a deal and I. Think we're looking into whole. You know getting. Dadan so glad you found it. I didn't upgrade to the pro. I was going as I think we kind of talked about. I tried the pros. Defined as the regular one. This crazy. And it's funny because these are so hard to find on any of the major retailers and the only place I could find. It was like a small boutique place, which is closer to where you are in the west side. I think Woodland Hills, but somewhere out there but yeah like I. Finally got it and at first. I was like okay. I love the way that it works. It's very convenient. I can use it for like game. Recording game streaming, which I might get into actually made a twitter account. But I was like you know I have like three capture cards. They all would work. This is convenient I. Don't know if it's ultimately that useful. And then I looked at their return policy, and these specifically have no returns on black magic design products. I don't know why why yeah So look the reality. The the the interface itself is great for live streaming. That's really all I use it. I use it for live streaming and also use it for. Recording. One of the things I actually I agree with you on the on the beginning the audio situation with the Office for me at least. I want to move away from using livelier mark in the office at such a small environment and I love how the audio sounds from this type of audio so I'm actually I'm in kind of the same situation. I am transitioning away from using Wireless can actively mostly because of Inter Inter interference of had some interference. Whenever, you have any kind of smartphone. anyways but the atom mini has been for me at least within the last five months, or so an integral part of coast, every piece of work that generated because of the interface because of the monitoring functionality. It's really meant to be part of a deck right so you have like your audio interface in you have this I don't use it for the audio and like I said I'm sad that you don't have away returning it necessarily, but I'm pretty sure you can sell it. There's there's enough of a demand on it like the for any reason, if it doesn't end up being the right one for you and you WANNA maybe go with A. Like a stream yard or something like that or something I think by I think there's other brands that kind of have similar stuff. You won't have a problem, but I I hope it works out. Yeah I'm. That's the reason why I made. The twitter account because I was like okay, if I can't return it, I might as well like try to make it work. Yeah, so. Why not get him? It's kind of at the point where. Just just mitigate some of the few things that are missing in the committee. I just always record separate audio just in case. Skirt all of that. But. Yeah, you know what? We got into the weeds, a little bit with some of our setup and whatnot, but the reason why I wanted to have Tiki on is because he has the full setup. Yeah, now I do too so I wanted to mess around with stream yard, a little bit for our podcast listeners, or if you're watching this on facebook or I, G TV, which will be posted on there. I actually wanted to put something out there. We might be moving this podcast facebook live. It will still be posted in all of the same places as before it's just we're going to a different live platform. The video the video portion. Exactly. So the video was still be on TV like it has been, but ninety TV's been so buggy, and it's been really pissing me off. So I figure, lets you stream yard. It'll record it, and then I can take that recording. Put It on facebook. Live posted on. Your facebook page for hogging now has like half a million followers.

These are some clues or hints into our. We might be speaking about today. David really great to have you on our show, and are you ready to inspire? So, glad to be here. Thank you for the introduction. Absolutely a registered with your audience stories and things that have worked things that haven't worked, but the the growth that the journey of life is so absolutely wonderful, so I start. Let's talk about your child to begin with. What was it like growing up in your house or in your home? Yeah, it's. We had a loving very loving nurturing environment. And everybody grows up with their sense of normal, and so for me. My sense of normal was we moved every two to three years. And? What I didn't realize was a lot of that created. Beliefs in me. Just, really long relationships you a one day. You might best friends and the next day I'm moving because. I'd I'd got orders to a new duty station. And so this is certainly before the age of the Internet. And on facebook and chatting and texting, and so our French just stopped But it was great to you know on the on the flip side. It was great to see different parts of the country and early age great certainly live in Japan for for three years now got to South Korea got the Philippines there, and and just being exposed to different parts of the world at that age had tremendous impact that still with me. Today got it. So that moving know that having a friend and losing the friend because you're moving to another city are part of the country. What sort of impacted that have on you in retrospect because I remember. When I was a kid, it happened the other way for me. 'cause I used to have a friend, and then he would move to a different city. Burns would get relocated and deep down. I felt that I could. Could never have a longtime friend. I always wanted to have that best friend as kids. We WanNa feel accepted. We want to have that friendship. You want to feel that you love as a property, but the fact that every time I made a friend, either he would move to a different city or I would move schools and I. Don't know I'm still discovering how that has me long, but how did that? You, don't affect you. Know for sure it really did. It created to beliefs that I took with me into my adult life, and so one of those. Relationships end and so. I just didn't fully appreciate the currency of a rich relationship in rich friendship, and what that meant and certainly had some. as I went you know as I grew up in I still remember this guy comes to mind Jason. Who is my best friend? When we lived through Japan, we stayed touch for years afterwards when his family moved to Virginia, moved North Carolina. But I just didn't appreciate that keeping someone in having a lifelong friend. was really something that I could have and. So that was one belief that just friendships and relationships ended I started carried. You know I've got great friends from high school still. is a long time, but the other believe really that it created was. When it came to romantic relationships, and so, if you have this dynamic that in some cases, relationships end well when it comes to romance, and you almost of have to go all in because you're trying to shore up this relationship before you get to the point where it's GonNa end. And so I became super romantic. I became a really romantic person. I wrote poems. I think when. Other people? In certainly later part of high school into college, discovering physical intimacy I was still kind of looking at romantic. But that you know those those two beliefs I really took with me through big part, my dot life, too I think was only through. Kenner the last you know five or six years that I really awoke to them and realized the power they'd have of me and was able to let them go. Thanks Norfolk shedding. It's interesting how one incident or two incidents. Are you know these things that happen to ourselves? Student Avenue Affect Different aspects of our life, even as we're adults, and only when we sort of. DIG The dive to shine the light on those parts of is which are now in the dock realize. Wow, that that did affect me right, so thanks a lot for sharing now your father and your brother will vote Marines right so what ruled deeply as you're growing up in your decisions, especially as far as the Yeah, you know it's it's funny. It was very creative growing up and I think that was part of the. Reality of not having consistent friend that I went from Grade School. All the way up to high school with I got really creative, so I wrote. I I drew I was very artistic. And in high school actually got something published You know a piece of A. Short story published honorable mention in a magazine nationally. I just thought that everybody can do that I just I didn't realize that it was. The writing was something that I just excel that a little bit so? When it came time to look at life after high school I remember my my dad's down. He said listen. You will pay for part of you're going to pay for the other half and. Get naked scholarship that's great. If not you might look at ROTC and join the military and. I guess one of the beliefs that I I grew up with it mentioned. Was I learned to hate the marine? Corps Because I blame them for always moving around and so. I thought. Okay, if I have to do military scholarship. I'm going to do that, but I'm not going to join the marines because no and. And so and there wasn't any you know. My Dad didn't push me. My brother was kind of going down that path as well. And I got into college and I was going to go into the. and. So every semester when you do ROTC program. You have to do a class for ROTC. And, so the class is like naval weapons system, so it's Kinda like missiles and stuff. It's really cool and second semester. Its naval like engineering like the actual ships engineering, and my mind is a liberal arts mind, and so I started him mechanical engineering just GonNa blacked out. Going to be good. I get to the grains. And so, that's kind of the pathway that took me down. That was you know I know the Maria familiar with them I grew up in the Marine Corps and so that was the path I decided to say.
Connecting Through Simplicity AND Are You Living Your Highest, Best Life
"Connecting through simplicity by Christine clues, men of Christine clues. Men Dot Com. Simplicity is one of the most effective tools for cultivating connection and a more joyful present way of Life Henry. David Thoreau often observed that when our lives are simple, we are better able to savor them both small and large ways we are more focused more patient, more perceptive and more resilient. Begin to it. The needs of others understand our own motivations achieve new heights of creativity and maintain our equilibrium. Simplicity has amazing power, but it is truly a practice rather than a one time. Fix Without Kawhi efforts to simplify, Pare back and streamline them. Our lives grow more complex each day like computers, our brains only have a finite amount of processing power, and when we pay attention to something of rains, literally are paying giving away a chunk of their limited mental energy as Daniel. Levitin points out in his excellent book. The organized mind our brains churned through as much mental energy. Answering mindless facebook quizzes as they do preparing for important work. Presentation is up to us to focus our minds on the things that matter before you waste all our energy on the other stuff. Unfortunately our brain processors evolve to their modern capabilities. When we were still hunter gatherers in those days, we could expect to meet fewer than one thousand other people in our whole. And own may be a half dozen things. Obviously, that's a tiny fraction of what the average American faces now with the same hunter-gatherer hardware. Most of us can only be half present what we're doing because we're juggling and ever exploding in box shifting short notice work deadlines and children that have scheduled as busy as our own, so we forget where we put our keys are sunglasses. That book we were reading just the other day. We miss whole conversations in stories going on around us as we try to respond to texts, emails and social media posts, we missed deadlines and appointments and forget to return phone calls.

No magic wand for business email compromise (BEC)
"Sadly, it's not possible just to waive some magic technology wand and Mike. Go Away is a complicated and diabolical problem but as a company with a specialty in email security per point is expected to at least help its customers and clients get on top of it now. Obviously, a lot of east stuff comes down to training and process and things like that right, so you can't just buy a product and it magically goes away, but there are things you can do as an email security provided to help right. So yeah in this conversation you'll hear us. Talk about about the problem and also about proof points approach in trying to minimize basie or try to make a dent in it. I'll drop you in here. Where Ryan is explaining that be scam is these days aren't necessarily trying to go fix giant paydays that can be clawed back right like there was that facebook one years ago with one stall. One hundred million people tend to notice, and you know they're not trying to do a million small payments, either it's really about hitting targets for just the right amount. He is Ryan Kalemba. It's really more about. About finding a sweet spot in between when it is too large to be easily transferable and too small to be economically meaningful, and what we're seeing now is a Q.. Twenty things like payroll, the version right payroll diversion. If you, if you add up the number of payroll diversion, social engineering attempts that we stop day, and just sort of multiply that by the average pay packet at millions and millions of dollars every day. But. It's those sorts of numbers that become really repeatable and really successful for the type of cybercriminals. We're talking about here. We're not talking about apex predators about something that is broadly democratized across the cyber criminal world, and is available to a huge number of groups operating worldwide. So what is the sweet spot in terms of monetary value? Right like where is the median level that you can do this and not set off fraud. Fraud controls. I guess you know. Let's do a step by step on how to do really good BC right. It is interesting because you have certain groups operating at scale where they really WANNA steal a few thousand at a time because they know that with a big company. That's just breakage, right? They're just GONNA call them at a minor loss and then move on. But that's it. There's a fair amount of them that are a little bit closer to the big game hunting trend to be ransomware side one. I, remember in particular was an organization, basically set up a very very convincing fake version of the contractor that was building a brand new hospital, and they spent months actually going back and forth before they knew a large payment was going to get moved, and then they knew actually how much time they'd have between the payment going through and somebody noticing the payment had not actually shown up yet and they social engineer. Engineer the payment to come across three weeks before the bill is actually do, and then they had three weeks to move that money in as many places as possible and none of that got recovered. So those are the ones and those kind of represent I think the two ends of the spectrum anyone who has as spectacularly unlucky or lucky as a as as what was the the Estonian Diner Lithuanian. They will also Indian guy that went after facebook and Google is probably on the wrong end of that spectrum, but that's just not happening that often lately.
Should Social Media Companies Honor the First Amendment?
"Hi everybody I'm John Van and moderator intelligence squared US debates and in this episode. We're going to be revisiting a debate on a topic. That's been in your headlines quite a bit recently. We're going to be looking at how social media platforms should be deciding what content you can or cannot post online. We're seeing twitter and facebook taking decidedly different approaches to this question. Twitter recently flagged a tweet from President trump where he said that mail-in ballots would be enabling voter fraud. The president responded to being flagged with a brand new executive order that would strip social media companies of their protections from liability for anything that users post. FACEBOOK is a different story. FACEBOOK has maintained that with the exception of some specific dangers. Free speech must be respected Mark Zuckerberg said we should enable as much expression as possible that said facebook has taken down some of trump's campaign ads that featured a Nazi symbol and has allowed users to opt out of political ads. Well with all of this going on, what does it mean for the future of your news feed and Where should social media companies draw the line on possibly false or offensive or hateful user content? Two thousand, nineteen, we brought four very strong debaters to the stage to argue those questions. We had a debate, so let's hear it. Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, so says the US Constitution, but what about facebook or twitter or any social media platform, those companies face no constraints on setting limits on what people can say platforms. It is after all their ballgame. They own the space, but should they be limiting speech when it is so offensive, sometimes and morally threatening that a crosses the line into what we call. Hey, speech same for information that is false pretending to be true. What some call fake news would doing so turn these companies into censorship? Where tree expression is put at serious risk, or perhaps should these same companies take a page from the First Amendment and encourage speech to run as far as it wants to? Well, we all this has the makings of a debate, so let's have it. Yes, or no to this statement. Constitutional free speech principles can save social media companies from themselves. John Donvan is Stan between two teams of two experts in this. This topic who will argue for and against this resolution as always our debate will go in three rounds, and then our audience here at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia will choose the winner, and if all goes well, civil discourse will also win our resolution one more time. Constitutional free speech principles can save social media companies from themselves. Let's meet the team arguing for the resolution, please I welcome David French. David welcome to intelligence squared. You are a senior writer for the National Review Your Attorney. Sometimes you say you're recovering attorney, your free speech advocate. You're a veteran of operation. Iraqi Freedom you have a New York Times bestselling book out and another one called the great American divorce coming out this year after year long career in law and your love the first. Amendment, the fact that we are at the National Constitution Center a shrine to the Constitution does being here. Give you chills. Debate gives me chills because it reminds me of two dates. Seventeen, eighty-nine, nine, the date, the constitution was ratified in seventeen, ninety eight, the date that the founding generation passed the alien and sedition acts indicating that debates about free speech have been alive as long as our Constitution has been a lie and are still with us as we're going to be debating tonight listening again David French. and. You have a partner arguing this with you. Please welcome losing in Korean mcsherry. Thanks so much for joining us I Q to You are the legal director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Is a nonprofit that defends civil liberties in the Digital World Karen. You have said that some of your favorite cases involved defending political expression. Do you have a particular? Can share. It's hard to choose so I'll just tell you about a recent case. That was particularly fun. And that involves a situation where a group of activists took to the streets of Washington DC and Philadelphia and New York, handing out spoof copies of the Washington Post in which the headline announced that trump had last resigned. It was lots of fun. They got lots of attention to Washington. Post also paid attention and was not happy, so they received illegal threat. They called us. We intervened, and we explained to the Washington Post what they should already know. Which is that? That spoof was protected by the First Amendment. Wash depot should know that they realized it. They backed down. We called it a win.
"Should our nonprofit take a stand on social justice issues. If we think it might alienate some donors. Oh topical questions Mad We can tell what's on people's minds and I'm glad that this is on people's minds because it's a really important question. I have an opinion and if you're gonNA guess what my opinion is, which is. Absolutely. So so there's tons of research, and and before we get too far. This is ab absolutely. Bring in a guest expert because this is the kind of lead to. This is the kind of thing where people who know way more about this than we do. But, but there's there's a ton of research out there and people in the nonprofit sector, probably more likely to believe it than people in the corporate sector are that. When you take a stand on social issues, you bring the people that are interested in what you've got to say much closer to you and the people that were never interested in you to begin with are not going to have their minds changed by you taking a stand on a particular social issue. I can talk about my time at three. Square I think I've probably told this story on the podcast before to. We got a handwritten note. A check for I think twenty five dollars on it and the handwritten note said. Here's twenty five dollars. I would like you to use this money to feed American citizens only. Hell I remember that we talked about. It's been two years. We talked about like that right, and and we had no hesitation at the food bank like I. You know I looked at it. I knew what I wanted to do I brought it to the executive or the CEO. I said Hey. This is what we got. This is what I WANNA do. And the blessing was absolutely. That's what you should ride. There was not even any discussion internally about. Let's not hurt her feelings, so we drafted a letter, which said that much your donation. However, we cannot restrict donations specifically to people who are American citizens, and that's it and we returned it back to her with that little note. There's a one hundred percent chance. She never gave another donation to the food bank again, but that was twenty five bucks right, so it was absolutely wasn't a really hard. We weren't selling our morals for a significantly amount at large amount of money was just a very well. And you and I both know that amount of money shouldn't matter. I know within a matter, but like we don't know this reader talks about alienating some or this. You know this person says they're alienating some donors. We don't know what size donors were talking about, but I still. That doesn't make a difference in my opinion. I just think. I would I would say my push pushback to that would be that. What donors are you alienating by? Not taking a stand because there's been a whole I I've been following all these sort of private facebook groups that have nonprofit professionals in groups with you know nonprofit executive directors all over the country that are talking about this and I would say if I were just roughly speaking. Ninety percent of people right now are putting out some statement because a it's so intertwined in every mission out their rates. Social Justice issues are at the core of those I think the key is making sure that it is. Not done in a sloppy manner or a an obligatory manner I. I don't know about you. Andy, but I've seen so many statements that come out that feel like people are doing it to check the box. Instead of actually it's core values. It's the way they work and I. Think People can see through that so I do think you have to be careful about that as an organization, so, but it comes back to your fundamental values. Your mission your how you? who you serve a to me, it feels it just feels like a even if it's a donor on the line like what about the donors who are waiting to see what you say? I think you gotta look at it from both lenses absolutely I mean and you have you make a good point about like especially right now. There's a lot of every corporate PR. Department has put out some sort of statement it says either black lives, matter or something close enough to that that they don't feel like they're actually going to put their foot in anything. They don't mean to put their foot in and and you can tell just by the way they're written whether or not they mean. Whether or not, it's like. I. Read Someplace recently that that saying we need to do better is about the same as hopes and prayers for gun violence like it, it just something that comes out of your mouth, and it means you have absolutely no intention of doing something about it. So when we talk about know in the nonprofit sector. Your your integrity is all you have, and you realize that your people are going to give to you because believe in your mission one hundred percent of the time and some of the other things, so there's there's other studies that are just recent. That are so interesting because they're tangential to this, not the same thing, but it's like if if you find out that there's a charity for that serves cats in a charity. This serves dogs and you're a dog person. You've always been a dog person. You give the dog person charity, and then you read a study or read something in the newspaper that says. The dog charity is. Seventy five percent effective and the cat charities ninety five percent effective. It doesn't matter your dog person. You're still giving to the dog charity, which means that the purpose that caused the reason that you're a nonprofit is always going to be much more important than the individual activities that you undertake and provided. You're not terrible now that you're not coming down on the wrong side of this thing. And if you if you do come down the wrong side of it out, you get what you deserve oh you do.
Online Activists Raise $5 Million to Create New MLK Jr. Quote
"Kohl's for racial justice have echoed through our cities and on social media in the past week, says more protesters across the country demand change, but for white allies like myself he can sometimes be difficult to know how exactly we can bring about equality in these troubling times, luckily one online organization is doing their part to bring awareness to the cause raising over five million dollars soul in an effort to create a brand new Martin Luther King. Quote for more. I'm joined by OPR's Marcy Hammons. Mercy? This just seems like a wonderful campaign. What can you tell us about the good Samaritans behind this project? Well, it all started with the facebook group. White lives for black lives and activism page run by Read Bailey who like so many others says she felt hurt and confused on how to best show. She was an ally, so she decided to use her social platform for good. We just wanted to do something big to show. We want change. Change and we felt like pushing the same old Martin Luther King quotes just wasn't enough
"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..
"facebook" Discussed on The Information's 411
"Friday everybody information's one at your weekly look at the stories that the information published and other things in the news that we feel fit to comment on my name. Is Tom Dotan. I am one of the reporters at the information this week. We have two segments first off. I'm talking to turn out in DC. Chris wrote a story about facebook. 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.
