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. Musk overtook facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg last week when he became the third richest person on. The billionaires index zuckerberg has since fallen to fifth in the rankings.

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.

Democracy Activists in Hong Kong Charged With Illegal Assembly.

"Start in Hong Kong, then where some of the territory's most well known democracy activists, including Joshua, One, have been remanded in custody after pleading guilty to being involved in last year's anti government protests. They now face the possibility of years in prison. Hong Kong was convulsed by months of huge and often violent. Democracy rallies last year in which millions took to the streets. Beijing and local authorities have refused demands for free elections and have responded with a growing crackdown against democracy supporters that speak to our correspondent. In Hong Kong, Donnie Vincent Danny, this case was heard this morning and we now know that the just real long and others have been remanded and tell us what what happened in court. That's right. This morning, The three young activists arrived at court, and they were surrounded by lots of journalists. Because the night before on Joshua Wong, the perhaps the most prominent activist in in Hong Kong, perhaps the most visible face of this movement he posted last night on Facebook that he was planning to plead guilty. And he wouldn't be surprised if he was indeed found himself in custody after the hearing, and that's of course what happened. The three activists are accused of inciting unlawful assembly, organizing unlawful assembly and tending illegal assembly on unlawful assembly. That means they could possibly face five years in prison. We now know they're in custody, Which is what the three expected today on do now. So sentencing will be next week s O. The significance of this is it's seen as yet again. Another example of the ongoing crackdown against activists and people. They're out spoken here in the city. Over the last few weeks, we've seen a destroy NT three arrests. We've seen journalists, activists and lawmakers or arrested under various charges, and now it feels like the pro democracy movement certainly feel that they are under attack somewhere under attack, they would say, because of the new national security law. Some say the new national security law is simply enough to silence people to stop people going out onto the streets. But we do know is since that law was introduced The city has changed significantly

Finding Positive Places Online

"Today we're talking about digital self care so nicole had come across a mention of this. This on lied. They called it a self care crawl so in trying to understand what that meant. We decided we just talk about Sort of feel good stops online feel-good places to go online since we can't really go anywhere in person right now so when you're when you're looking to just maybe blow a little steam or just have a little hit of endorphins. Where do you go online nicole. You had some. You had some ideas in mind or you have a little kind of. Yeah will i. I mean yeah so first of all the title was attractive because it may be thinking of other types of crawls around college days liver sadly lost in news core. yeah time but It actually was kind of an interesting idea. Because i thought you know when i if i have been working all day or if i've been out about or If i've been doing housework what am i kind of ways that i carve out time for myself is a computer and then i have like my favorite sites that i go to or you know things that i do is kind of like a little routine right. That's gonna wear. I can escape for a few minutes. I'm not having to shop for anybody. I'm not having to make appointments for anybody. Not having to send emails. Anybody is kinda like that little time that myself and of course you know it's like a total luxury to even dream about some of these things for example you know one of my favorite. To's is the ralph lauren website. And i liked the look at you. Know what's on that site and And then another one of my favorites doubt stops as the kate spade website so this kind of a trend right out the window shopping. But on down cle- yes that's awesome with the online. And then of course i always go to a couple of my favorite facebook groups and check out that because there's really nothing ever negative. That happens on there so that's good and In my face yeah right right kind of a little bit of a Doesn't really make sense. But yeah so i thought we could just kind of expand more on that i mean. What do i mean. I'm sure you both have some of your favorite stops online. That you that you go to or that's part of your day or your routine. So yeah kind of elaborate on the like what or do you just kinda do your work shut your computer down and then you move on. I used to have a list of really fun. Twitter accounts that i would go on and that we made a little bit of respite. I would go and see what all those people were saying. There were always funny and entertaining and then politics happened and twitter just became a surging cesspool of strife and anger. And i couldn't go there anymore because my fun little entertaining twitter people had opinions on things and whether agreed with them or not. It just made me mad. So i had to step away from twitter and facebook also friends who i used to enjoy following to see what was happening in their day day to day life also had opinions and again whether i agreed or disagreed it all just made me angry and that is not what you're looking for when you're doing your self care crawl so i found recently a combination of snoozing everybody who is melting off and joining a a facebook group that was extremely positive and extremely prolific. Pretty much gave me a safe place to go and just sort of reveling in salinas and fun. That for me was a. It's a group of fans of the bobby bones show. They call themselves the b. team. They sort of singlehandedly. Got him memorable ball trophy on dancing with the stars and they have this facebook group that they mentioned it on the show and so it grew by like i think ten thousand people over long it got very large but it's generally not one hundred percent because people are people but it's generally very positive and just go to my newsfeed now in its all be team and that's just fine q. Pictures people's kids fund things that happened on the show pictures that where they saw bobby bones at a concert as just very entertaining in very low stress and very enjoyable so that has been a real self care thing. I highly recommend snoozing all your friends. You don't wanna see right now. Look joining something where people will talk about nonsense

Facebook And Apple Trade Schoolyard Taunts

"So another case of mommy and daddy are fighting again. It's just this time a different. Mommy and daddy are fighting. It's complicated but it breaks down like this in an open letter. Apple yesterday defended its decision to delay. Those fade changes in iowa's fourteen. That would block. The sort of tracking data adds that facebook and google us to follow you around the internet in that open letter. Apple basically slammed facebook. Quoting nine to five mac in a letter sent to the ranking digital rights organization. Apples jane horvath senior director of global. Privacy reiterated the company believes that quote privacy as a fundamental human right and quote horvath explains. That apple delayed the app tracking transparency. At feature in an effort to give developers more time to prepare for the changes the letter also confirmed that the app tracking transparency feature which is designed to allow users to disabled tracking between different. Applications is still coming next year. Once in effect the developers will also be required to ask for permission before tracking user across apps or websites. Furthermore her that has sharp criticism for facebook saying that the social network has made clear its intent is to collect as much data as possible on its users quote by contrast facebook and others have a very different approach to targeting. Not only do they allow the grouping of users into smaller segments. They use detailed data about online browsing activity to target ads. Facebook executives have made clear. Their intent is to collect as much data as possible across both first and third party products to develop and monetize detailed profiles of their users and this disregard for user privacy continues to expand to include more of their products and quote on the flip side. Facebook has criticized the app tracking transparency feature and said it could cause ad revenue drop by as much as forty percent. Facebook has reportedly met with partners to discuss the impact that change will have on advertising when users have the ability to easily opt out of cross platform tracking and quote and indeed. Facebook was quick to hit back at apple's open letter sticking them with the convenient. Antitrust shiv quoting business. Insider facebook hit back hard in a statement sent to business insider accusing apple of abusing. Its dominance to benefit itself. It also accused apple of sending the letter as a distraction from privacy concerns that emerge last week after a series of computers. Had difficulties opening apps security research. Jeffrey paul claimed in a blog. This was because mac os has started harvesting data from users quote. The truth is apple has expanded its business into advertising and through its upcoming. Ios for changes is trying to move the free internet into paid apps and services where they profit facebook said as a result they are using their dominant market position to self preference their own data collection while making it nearly impossible for their competitors to use the same data. They claim it's about privacy but it's about profit the statement read. This is all part of a transformation of apple's business from innovative hardware products to data driven software and media and quote. There's a part in our discussion on this weekend's bonus episode where the suggests that the long sort of detente between the major tech platforms that has held for the most part for the last decade. Might soon be coming to an end. And i suggested that that might be because all of the virgin territory has been claimed. Everyone has their stakes. Now the fences are up. It's as zero sum game.

Covid Milestones: Eli Lilly CEO on Antiviral Approval & Pfizers FDA Application

"Corona virus cases are hitting new highs in the united states and the cdc is urging the country to keep thanksgiving celebrations small. The recommending americans spend the holiday only with people who've been living in their households for the last fourteen days which means no military personnel. Who plant to come home and no college students back from campus. And this week amid it. All california governor gavin newsom issued a curfew between ten pm and five am for all nonessential work and gatherings in most of the state and the order will remain in place until at least december twenty first perhaps even longer but some good news today as well visor and its partner. Biontech are submitting their obligation to the fda for emergency use authorization of their covid nineteen vaccine. This would be the first covid vaccine that goes through the regulatory process. Here's becky the fda's review process is expected to take a few weeks. Advisory committee meeting on the vaccine is tentatively scheduled for early next month. If it's approved some americans could get their first doses in just about a month's time earlier this week study. Data analysis showed this vaccine to be ninety five percents effective and that's incredibly impressive. Let's bring in meg. Terrell she's got more on this good morning. Good morning becky moving incredibly fast and a really historic milestone this morning the first vaccine to go to the fda for covid nineteen to try to stop this pandemic. So we're going to see this regulatory process. Really play out over the coming weeks. We should here typically the way this works is the company alerts the world when the fda has accepted an application and set a date to decide on the drug. We're in a pandemic of course so those dates are not going to be normal. And the communications might be different to we. Might hear from the fda Either the decision timing that they might be looking at and especially about when they're gonna set that advisory committee meeting to discuss this vaccine. That's when outside advisers get together dig apart all of the data around The vaccine the safety the efficacy the manufacturing and talk about also how this should potentially be approved for the market. And it's possible. We will see an application from dern. They said within weeks So we should see that soon. Too and so the expectation that i heard was that the fda had asked those outside advisors to set aside december eighth ninth and tenth three days to potentially discuss. Both vaccines Now dr john taurus from nbc had the fda commissioners steven hahn said scott gottlieb. Stephen hawking on with him yesterday in a facebook live. He asked him about those dates. Any no he said. The fda was going to be flexible. He wouldn't confirm that they had asked them to set those dates. And so we have been hearing since we reported those dates a lot of people sort of saying. Why is this going to take so long So we will have to wait to see what the empty actually does In terms of scheduling that meeting. They do need time to go through the application themselves very carefully. Prepare the documents the committee and then the committee will discuss it and we do expect the fda decide extremely quickly after that meeting Whether to green light this market and then pfizer in biontech. Say they are ready to go within hours after that That green light to start shipping. This guy's yeah. That was one of the things that really caught my attention this morning. The idea that within hours they'd be ready to start shipping vaccine and getting it out there and that brings up the question of how we do that. How do we distribute this. Where does it go. How do we determine who gets it. I never the states have been working on plans along with the federal government to try and figure out how much each state would get. But how does it work. We do even know. Do we have a real game plan for who gets what. When and how we know part of that. So operation warp speed an eighty just secretary alex as are held. A briefing about those plans are earlier. This week And essentially what would happen after. The fda gives the green light if it does then. The cdc has an advisory committee as well that would meet to make recommendations about. Who should get this vaccine. I if there are two vaccines if there are any differences in them you know which groups should get which dosing of that stuff So that's expected to happen extremely quickly. And then the cdc makes recommendations about how much each state should get Secretaries are based on population. We also know of course that because supply will be so limited that there are going to be prioritized groups. Healthcare workers are expected to be at the top People with underlying health conditions that make them more severe. More vulnerable to severe disease will also be at the top so We'll see how that gets allocated to the states based on what. The group recommends

Living Sober FAQs

"We're going to do a little compilation. A little collection of frequently asked questions so get questions. obviously all my social media platforms people. Message me. ask questions questions in the facebook group email. Everybody's got a lot of questions about sobriety and getting sober quitting drinking all of those things. One of my favorite things to do is answer questions in live videos so i'll go live usually facebook and youtube. I'll go live in. Just do maybe a five or ten minute video answering whatever questions have come in. Or what's popular at that time. So what i did. Is i took a few of those videos. Only a few not nothing crazy. I took a few of those videos. And i took the audio from them. And we're gonna do a compilation episode of frequently asked questions and these are three questions. Literally that i get over and over again. I'm forever most popular things that come up all the time in recovery and we're going to start with a big struggle in the twelve step world sponsorship. Most people get a really weird feeling about sponsorship self included. I was the same way. When i got sober and i started going a. It didn't make sense to me. You know by nature the majority of ice with addiction or very rebellious obstinate. And we don't like authority. Usually in any form and i think there's this sense of like sponsors. Are your boss right. They're gonna tell you what to do and like a good super immature alcoholic. Like i was when i quit drinking. Super emotionally immature. That was my thought process around sponsorship. In i was like i don't need somebody telling me what to do. I don't need somebody to call. And ask what i need to buy at the store how i need to act in this situation. You know i was just such a. I was such an immature self-centered little brat right. I didn't understand at all. The dynamic of sponsorship in what is really meant to do and that this is a person being of service to me for free giving me their time and energy and knowledge that i just didn't even have the capacity to understand it from that point of view because of course i was completely selfish and self absorbed and only thinking about how it would affect me. How's this gonna work for me. How do i feel about it. I'm so glad. I have grown out of that really really grateful that my sponsor taught me how to have a more mature grown-up humanistic approach to life. Right in that service a sponsor is not your boss. A sponsor is just someone who has walked this walk before you has gotten farther than you and they're going to help you figure it out to get farther also so here is the audio from facebook live. I did about sponsorship in honor of full transparency. Like i was super weird about sponsorship when i got sober it was not a concept that i was like down for immediately right out the gate It was a struggle for me. So i get where you're coming from also in my sober living houses. I see this a lot too. I feel like we have a tendency to kind of overthinking and remember. You're not marrying this person right. This is no different than if you hire a coach or something like you can fire us as you are sponsor and as your sponsor. Arkansas are you too. So don't feel like you're getting into this major commitment and there's no way out of eight and it's so serious and like this person is going to be your boss or something like that's not what it's about at all. The other thing. I want to talk about is remember that we are just people as sponsors like literally. We are just people just like you. We have our own issues. Every single sponsor kind of has their own way of doing things. You know many years ago when i really sponsored a lot of people i did ask them to call me every day and i had good reason for that because my time is fairly limited right in. If i'm going to work with somebody. I will give you of energy and time that i have that i need to know that you're really in it in the you're willing and that you're in a place that you're ready to work for your sobriety because it's not always easy and it doesn't always feel good so if you can't do something as simple as calling

How thoughts about food can raise blood sugar

"With food and how that impacts us but now we have actual study that shows. How much are Our perception of food actually impacts us and they did a study on it and which is really cool to kind of share. And so here. It is unreal unreal unreal application. Not just in theory. Not just through. clinical rinse. We've seen this through clinical experience at times but now they actually conducted a study that showed that your perception of whether or not a food is good or bad impacts you on a metabolic level. This isn't just like who he will eat like. This is literally this is how your body responds. And this is busy logical are now we have studied to back it up. So let's talk about it. I was shared this study. That we're going to talk about today through a colleague of mine and i was really excited when i saw it and i i kinda did that. Pres hands like hands. Raised thing when i saw it because it was in a group of other clinicians and a kind of felt like this moment of finally. There's the research backing our clinical experience when it comes to how our body responds to food when we have a perceived belief about that food and so this this study is really cool because The title of it. And i'm sure a gain you'll share it in the show since stock like with actual interested in research for those of you who are interested in finding out over on. But it's a really really cool study. But it's called glucose metabolism response to perceived sugar intake more than actual sugar intake. And if you've been following along if you're on being data's newsletter you may have seen a little bit of a theme recently around elimination diets. Because this time of year everyone seems to be trying to do. Some new protocol emerged. Just hashtag over it. You know like So we've been talking about this alarm we've been talking about. How are you know. We've been talking about the gut brain axis lot within our non diet community on facebook and sharing them about added about how in a very real way Our bodies Believe in around food impact us via our gut brain access right and we talk about it like a time when you have the butterflies because you're anxious about something it means you get like the bubbly guts and stuff like that and we've been talking about that a lot and And we've been talking about it from this almost kind of like a theoretical approach. You know like in theory. This is why this happens because This is what our body does is logically. And so we're applying to food and now what this study did which is brilliant and so great at someone created the structure in order to test us and then the results were in alignment with what has been. The belief fell out of people who have in this Wholehearted eating world. An integrator of you know kind of approach to eating kind of approach. Non diet approach things which show that. This would be the way to go and that. This kind of confirmed this lady around food actually lease to An impact for you on a biological level. And so that's what this all about so didn't you wanna get into kind of the basics of The yet. So wanna give a little bit of a primer science broken down so it's easy right so the study is called glucose metabolism response To perceive sugar intake more than actual sugar intake. So let's breakdown that title so we know what we're talking about so all sugars and carbohydrates which are sugars breakdown in the body into glucose so that they can be digested absorbed and utilized as energy or energy for later. Okay so that's the first word in the whole study right so glucose metabolism the way that all sugars and carbohydrates are broken down in the body the way that this happens response to perceived sugar intake which will explain so. This process is responding more intensely. Let's say to perceive sugar intake. So how much sugar you think. You're eating rather than the amount of sugar actually eating. So the point of this study was for these researchers to see whether our psychological response to the way that we think about food to eating certain foods impacts the physiological response to the whole body response in this case raising blood sugar because currently sugar consumption is the most widely accepted factor in explaining blood. Sugar fluctuation blood sugar highs and lows all that kind of stuff right so christina. Do you wanna talk a little bit more of how they tested it So this is

"Jason, sturman design manager at Facebook, writing I'm not alone inside of facebook. There isn't a neutral position on racism, and that's really unprecedented a company like facebook. We've of course seen employs protests at other tech companies like Google for instance. Why do you think we haven't seen these kinds of protests at facebook? Specifically companies have cultures and Google's culture has been in the past. More receptive to kind of open debate to having these huge long list serves where people are arguing about company policies, but facebook. We don't even have really basis of that culture of like openly questioning the CO so when that doesn't happen. Then something like this is more of a shock to the system because it's not like Google you know you have people debating these kinds of issues every day. This is something you. So, what exactly are facebook employees saying about the company? They're saying that for too long. The company has ignored basically the escalating rhetoric of president trump. That? It's not applying its own standards consistently around moderating violent speech, and that they're tired of the platform, giving kind of exception to world, leaders trump because they are deemed newsworthy so. There are a lot of employees who are voicing their opposition, but is anyone at facebook supportive of these decisions. Have you also heard folks? Speak out and say know this is the right thing to do. Yeah absolutely. I've seen and heard. Many people say look in the name of free speech. I think we should let these comments stand and let other people decide whether these comments are appropriate or not, and facebook should not be too arbitrary truth. That's sort of Party line facebook however I think that we are seeing for the first time. More and more people question that. You mentioned that. A lot of facebook employees are sort of waking up to the black lives matter. Movement. Why do you think now is the time where they're waking up? And and what took them so long? You know I will say for many employees, particularly employees of caller it's it's not that way I. Think I'm hearing a lot of black employees saying. We have been frustrated. This has been building. We have been warning you internally. This is a problem we have been saying. You need to be stronger on hate speech to be stronger on violence beach toward everyone so I think for them. This is not this is not a new thing, but I think that this is the story of our time. There is a pandemic going on, but this is the story that is top of the news hour. That is impossible to ignore so. There's no coincidence that you're going to see that same level of urgency and. UBIQUITY with with the facebook employees in theory, free speech sounds great, but one in practice you see the president of your country post something viscerally think is wrong and his violent, and and as you know a lot of people think is racist when you see that than it's hard for you to come to say okay. In the name of free speech You know we should let this stand and it's it's free. Speech is tricky, because really a free speech is the. The, right for you to be protected from the government, right facebook and twitter can ban people, and they can take down tweets when whatever way they want, because they're not the government, and that doesn't mean silencing people. It just means silencing people on their platforms exactly, but you know facebook you those for a very long time has been to use this concept of free speech, really outside of the legal context, but to make it more of a immoral context and say. We want to apply the the same principle. Free speech that is meant to protect US citizens from the government to protect you. The US government really from the people? And say we're GONNA. Use The concept of free speech to protect president, trump and other world leaders from the people's dismay or disgust or were. Legitimate fears violent rhetoric. And so that's that's what's being debated right now by their employees, do employees typically have much power at facebook can cause real change I think so I, mean I think duckling debated because at the end of the day. Mark Zuckerberg controls the company he controls the board No one can really fire mark however I. He needs to run an innovative bright company filled with people who are not sheep, but who are people who will have their own thoughts and opinions and ideas, and if they don't. How do you continue to be the? Tech Titan that's nimble quick on its feet, and so I think that the company has to some extent Come to terms with with this this overall sentiment of their employee base because if they don't They won't be the smartest company in town. Change, on these kinds of issues doesn't necessarily happen overnight for sure. FACEBOOK's leadership is seeing that their employees have a strong reaction to this, and there are limits to how much they can upset. Their employees based on this topic so they they're trying to figure something out to keep people happy I think. Charene Ghaffari is a senior reporter at recode. Mark Zuckerberg has defended his decision about trump's posts by saying he doesn't want the platform to be an arbiter of truth, but it's facebook actually neutral. It's not just this static platform. This is the thing that is Algorithm Mickley making billions of decisions, every second in terms of what pieces of content deserve to be heard. When engineers tried to change the facebook algorithm to make the platform more civil, they were thwarted. The story of how that happened after the break. This is reset..

"Truly top of mind for them. Many of them are angry and we're seeing kind of employees uprising like we'd never seen before it. FACEBOOK, facebook, actions or lack thereof are even more stark since twitter labeled similar post from trump with A. A warning about the violent content so on Monday over four hundred facebook employees staged virtual walkout so they all logged off their work platforms. They changed their avatars on their communications tools to a raised fist and solidarity with the black lives matter protests, and they use this as a time to push leadership to reconsider their views on I'm not fact checking in not moderating trump so four hundred employees out of facebook's more than forty thousand employees. What was the organizational makeup of that group where they entry level employees or top engineers? It's mostly rank-in-file from what I'm seeing reconciling years product designers, but we have seen some for the first time. Senior level employees meaning directors of product management director of product design these are relatively high ranking people within the ORG, and we are seeing them post publicly on twitter in solidarity, the head of product designed for facebook's Newsfeed Ryan, Freedus, tweeting quote mark is wrong, and I will endeavour in the loudest possible way to change his mind.

"One of the people I spoke with was a girl who I call. Khloe the peace and she had applied for this job right out of school. She didn't have any other immediate prospects and because the job paid fifteen dollars an hour. That's four dollars more than Arizona minimum wage. It seemed like maybe the best thing she could do so she took the job and was about three and a half weeks into training when she had to do this particularly grim exercise and the way the exercise works is. You're in a room with all of your fellow trainees. There's a video screen on the wall. You walk up to a laptop and you hit play on some piece of content and then the screen is going to show you something. And then it's your job to explain to everyone around you if it violates the community standards and if so why right kind of like a pop quiz type type of feel now and chloe walks up and she hits play and she immediately starts to see a man who's being stabbed dozens of times. He's screaming he's begging for his life and effectively. He's he's being murdered right Clooney knows that it violates the rules to show someone being murdered on facebook so she explains that but she does. She hears her voice shaking. She goes back to her seat. She finds that she can't concentrate. She has an overwhelming urge to Saab. She leaves the room. She starts crying so hard that she has trouble breathing and keep in mind that there are supervisors around her. No one has has come out of the room to check on her known as trying to comfort her known as trying to get her resources and chloe actually leaves herself to go back into the room when she feels like. She put herself together. The first thing she sees when she goes back into the room is that a drone is shooting people from the air and so she watches these bodies go limp While she's in the room and at that point she needs so she goes into the break. Room she sobbing. She goes into the bathroom. She's sobbing finally supervisor. Finds are kind of gives her this week hug and says yeah you know It's tough out there. Why don't you go see a counselor? There are counselors on these sites. They're not there all the time. They are there during large stretches of the day. And you can go you one. If you're having a problem. So chloe goes to see the counselor and her take away from that meeting after he kind of gives her some. You know suggestions for how to cope with. What is the first panic attack that she's ever had in her life? Her takeaway is what this man is really trying to do is to get me back on that production floor. His job is to get me back in operational shape so that I can go and review content right like that is his primary concern now. What's interesting about that is many people actually are fired during a training or leave sharply thereafter and Chloe as someone who is still struggling with anxiety and panic attacks many months after she's left cognizant if she had left during training she would have had this sort of long term adverse mental health problem and absolutely no resources from either cognizant or facebook for this thing that never would have happened to her if she hadn't started the job the thing that really struck me reading. Your piece is like these people are protecting like all of us. They're like the Guardians of our facebook galaxy. And yet they're paid not very well and they're given these short breaks in their time is so structured. It's like I mean. Facebook is one of the richest companies in the world. Couldn't they just at least pay these contractors more literally? Yes Sean Literally yes. They made six billion dollars in profits last quarter. That is money. They're not spending on anything else. They could take that money and they can pay these people more. You know the more that I reported on the story. The more this work came to feel to me like other work. That first responders do police officers firefighters so social workers and something that those jobs tend to have in common is that we recognize them as a society level task. That is so important that we all pay for them collectively with our taxes right like that is how important we see those jobs. And once your platform has scaled up to more than two billion people which is how big facebook and instagram and the various other properties that facebook becomes are together. You have created a society and yet who policing it it is not you know all of chipping in to make sure that these people are safe and supported and you know have pensions. It's people who are being paid fifteen dollars. An Hour You mentioned that Khloe left. What made her leave? She was very concerned about her deteriorating mental health so she's still struggles with anxiety. She still struggles with panic. Attacks one of the things that Khloe told me was that in the aftermath of of leaving the job she had gone to watch the movie mother which includes a violent stabbing spree as she watched it. She started to think about that first video that she had seen in training and she felt another panic attack coming on and says she had to stand up and leave the theater..

"In January? Facebook made its first attempt to answer that question in detail. It released a set of bylaws covering everything from the makeup of the board to the individual appeals process for content. So how's it going to work? Let's say that I post something. It gets taken down for whatever reason then what happens so what will happen is let's say posted pictures of your cat and some flags it for violence against animals and gets taken down incorrectly. Do you appeal. That wants to facebook through their internal mechanisms. And then you'd appeal it again. If you get to that level you will get a code and you will take that code and copy paste it and it will go to a website that is not facebook and you a copy and paste that code into generate your file and to give permission for facebook to allow your private information to be reviewed by an outside body and then it goes before a case selection committee which functions a little bit like writ in the Supreme Court Which is kind of their decide whether or not your case is worth reviewing if you're cases selected it's brought before a five person panel of Oversight Board members and they then write a decision explaining why they gave their answer and saying whether they would take down or keep it up even decision around a particular piece of content might be representative of a larger issue. Then that small five person panel can flag it with the larger forty person board if they've made a policy decision or a policy recommendation that facebook has to reply to that policy decision. And say why it is that they are implementing that policy decision or why. They're not and that is also a public statement. Then all of those decisions are put into a database. That is searchable on the website. And we'll be able to kind of have a common law type Database that allows us to see similar facts or similar rulings and all of this is supposed to happen within ninety days of making that initial complaint. Yes exactly which is insane. It's insane it's insane for like it. Well it's insane for two reasons. One is the idea that you can do all of that within ninety days and then the other part of it is that both seems very slow and very fast. It feels very fast to give that amount of due process of someone I mean court cases languish for years right but at the same time. It seems really slow because there is in the life of the Internet with an eighteen hours things might no longer be relevant from the user perspective. It's really supposed to be about signaling erroneous decisions or decisions that people want change on facebook's policy about to an outside board when time is not really of the essence. I listen to you detail all these steps. And they're frankly sort of dizzying in their complex about it Boy It seems like a lot for an individual user. It is a lot for an individual user. But I think that we're kind of at this point. Where these transnational private companies that have got privately governed are public rights of speech. I think it's maybe time it's these issues have certainly are not new. They have been happening for the last twenty years and so I think that people will become so much more literate in such a short amount of time and I think this is just the tip of the iceberg of that kind of civics and cultural literacy around this issue. This appeals process. Kate is describing. It only applies to content. That has already been removed from the platform. So if you're a user and you WanNa see something come down. The Oversight Board can't help. It is narrow though because this is just about content that gets taken down. It's not about whether my neighbor is posting vaccine misinformation that I would like to see taken down. Yeah and so at the beginning. It's only gonNA be about removal. And so if you think about this actually from a privacy perspective this makes a lot of sense. Let's say that. You flag a piece of content that your neighbor posts right and facebook says no keeping it up and you want to appeal that decision for you to appeal that decision given the process that I just gave you. You would be sending someone else's data off of facebook and into the outside world from a privacy perspective. You just can't. That's very difficult to do when I think about how. The typical person uses facebook. Do you think this is going to change their experience all that much? I don't think most people will appeal this type of content but I think it might be part of a broader industry. Change that ends up happening. I see this kind of going one of three ways on one hand. It might end up being that this just stays at facebook the other way that you could think about it. Is that other websites twitter. Google whatever chip into the trust and then also want to use the oversight board and the people on the oversight board as their own adjudicators of their own types of content. And the third way it gets you going. Is that each of these platforms decides to create. Its Own Oversight Board to review their own content based on their own rules and values and in that case what I see happening for users markets of rules you are very explicitly going to certain types of platforms to be able to say certain types of things with the understanding that even say certain types of things on some platforms forms.

Facebook has continued to struggle with these decisions. They've created a huge content moderation operation and endured scandals over doctored videos and D platforming.

That looks a whole lot like pinterest by seller hold facebook's new APP hobby sale and the world doesn't need another pinterest pinterest. It's got this. I don't think it's going to be a success.

That's why I think it's a whole telling you how often you can open and close it.

I feel like we're going straight to MAC career behind the glass there. I don't I mean I I am. I am for this market. I feel like they need to make those products healthier. The branding is clever. I I'm a by there. I think he could probably do something with. Let's bring in our man behind the glass St Britto and this one Steve. You have to have an opinion on the brand name incognito. I didn't realize Kellogg's made meet their morning. Okay okay the point. It's not. Are you concerned that if this is all a success that at some point in the future? Kellogg's going to have a crossover product. That's basically an incognito pop tart. I think it'd be a problem for sure. Absolutely all right last but certainly not least yum brands and crocs teamed up to make clogs and by the way they unveiled this at New York Fashion Week. They teamed up to make clogs designed with KFC's signature red and white buckets and they are scented like Fried Chicken Ron so by seller hold the new KFC crocks. I am a cell because they come with charms on the top of them that look like little drumsticks which is not necessary. And you don't want that smell just constantly in your closet in your house on your on your person whether they're crocs or clogs whatever they are. I am buying these shoes look. Kfc is not a fast casual restaurant chain of fast food chain. It's a lifestyle you're either any you're out. I'm in. I think I think she makes a good point there. I don't know man don't just look either. You're buying these things or you're not and if they do it in a limited way it's going.

"Addy Hello Hi thanks for being here yes thank you so news just broke about an hour ago you and I are talking Monday afternoon that a bunch of facebook employees wrote this open letter Mark Zuckerberg and they're saying that the plot form shouldn't let politicians post false claims through ads and they write it is a threat to what facebook stands for and so I want doc this with you throughout our conversations today but just right off the top what are your reactions to this letter it certainly seems like it's a pattern of growing semi look employees activism that's happened inside facebook it's happened in Google and Microsoft often over specific contracts that companies are signing but in this case it's about a really big sweeping issue that Mark Zuckerberg has like you said delivered a manifesto about so it's interesting to see this more limited but still sort of manifesto lake dissent from inside the company Two hundred and fifty employees I mean I know there's thirty five thousand in facebook but that's not a small number we can't tell whether or not it's representative of already opinion inside facebook but it's certainly a group of people and a group of people who are taking a certain amount of risk right so let's get to the back story what actually informed this letter are you sort of hinted at it in your answer is all stems from the US congressional hearings last week right they were ostensibly about facebook's proposed crypto currency but they re WE ENDED UP BEING ABOUT POLITICAL AD this hearing is entitled an examination of Facebook and its impact on the financial services and housing sectors I've come to the conclusion that it would be beneficial for all if facebook concentrates on addressing is many existing depiction and sees and failures before proceeding any further on the Lieber project theoretically about cryptocurrency but we're about really anything anyone was worried about with facebook Yeah Yeah give me some highlights yes so this is sort of an ongoing back and forth with Mark Zuckerberg and politicians that Donald trump ran ad that was repeating claims that are as far as we know false about Joe Biden and his son and grain yes yes and then Mark Zuckerberg uh-huh decided that they weren't going to fact check ads he sort of made that declaration as a principal in a democracy I believe that people should decide what is credible not companies and then Alexandria Cossio Cortes sort of then flipped that and said look if I put out an ad saying that a Republican politicians supported the green new deal. I mean if you're not checking political advertisements central trying to understand the bounds here what's fair I I don't know the answer to that my head and he Sword of dodged the question his argument is just if you're going to lie to your constituents than we should be able to show them that you're the kind of person who lives right I think lying is bad and I think if you were to run an ad that had alive that would be bad that's different from it being in our position the right thing due to prevent your constituents or people in an election from seeing that you live right maxine waters push back on this quite hard got maxine waters she's saying the reason that they're leaving the adds up isn't because you know you wanNA show political speech that gives politicians a licensed to lie so you can earn more money off this division I suppose yeah which he sort of pushed back on in his speech earlier he's argued this is like a really tiny of facebook's business that it would be in a lot of ways easier to ban this stuff altogether controversy certainly is not worth very small part of our business that they make up and except might be accurate in a micro sense it's not necessarily that facebook makes a ton of money from political ads specifically but it would signal a pretty big limits nation if they banned them and it would probably also make a fair number of people angry right and tell me a little bit more about that like the idea that Zuckerberg is kind of leaning in her to this new manifesto this free speech manifesto that he has there seems to be like a principle guiding what he's doing yeah and the principles behind what he's doing at least the ones he's stating aren't really that controversial in a very large philosophical sense there's the argument that if we're going to have limits on speech it's very dangerous for a massive company that has sort of a stranglehold on speech to be putting limitations on that speech and while I sir worry about neurosis truth I don't think most people want to live in a world where you can only post things that tech companies judge to be one hundred percent true or that if politicians want to tell their constituents things that are bad then the constituents should have the right to be able to hear them speak and to be able to make thrown judgments and that if you have these fact checking campaigns then often they can get weaponized against people who are marginalized and they'll end up support being incumbent players political ads can be an important part of voice you know especially for local candidates and up and coming Challengers Advocacy Group marginalized for example so there's been an argument in the twenty twenty American campaign that there are fact checkers from major papers that will try to pick holes in arguments that they essentially just don't agree with and that they'll treat them with much harsher scrutiny this has been an issue with Bernie Sanders campaign there's always a certain amount of ideology when you're checking facts and it is entirely plausible that say a bunch of roles could try to report every single campaign ad from small candidate with a new political platform and then they could just way down all of those ads in fact checking right and you know just talking about fact checking for a second much has been made a fact checking and facebook over the last several months what are we talking of it here he's saying he's not going to fact check political ads but they are fact checking other content on the site right how is that working to some extent we don't know how work because a lot of this seems to be made up on the fly find it very confusing but based on what we understand there are fact checkers that belong to a variety of organization Chen's they check general posts but they do not check politicians posts we don't do this to help politicians but because we think people should be able to see for themselves what politicians are saying for the same reason if content is newsworthy we also won't take down even food otherwise conflict with some of our standards this carries on over into paid advertisements as far as we know that then they will not fact check things that politicians say but based on events facebook talked about how it wouldn't take down or factor claims it actually did take down and advertisement from a third party group that was claiming that Lindsey Graham Republic politician got it it is very convenient also I also find it confusing like how many resources are being thrown at this and how it's even possible to fact check all of this around the Russian election meddling issue focusing on the authenticity of the speaker rather than trying to judge the content itself Alvin Ball like there's an argument to be made that they just make up a new rule whenever they need to do something retroactively justify it and look like what do we know oh about the algorithms because I get this free speech argument that Zuckerberg is putting forward but I always find it a bit confusing the people aren't talking about the second part of this argument which is the amplification of that speech rate like maybe you have a right to say all sorts of things but do you necessarily have a right eight for this information to be amplified and delivered to people through news feeds through ads. You know this kind of right and that's part of what the letter was about today there statement being that there's a difference between speech and paid speech to everybody so that's ads and then the problem is that facebook is just designed in a way where every is facebook and so it's really difficult to come up with the sort of neutral quote unquote algorithm so there's always going to be some level of value judgment.

"The media might not otherwise cover that way they can get their voice into the debate rate could in fact checking campaign get weaponized against people who are what happened this weekend they do seem to fact check really egregious lies from groups that are not politicians making claims about politicians so earlier after then supported the democratic green new deal and facebook justified this by saying that well it wasn't ad from a politician it was just an ad from another group out it's moving at such a fast clip right and facebook adding to that has it draws a distinction between speech that is false and speech that is quote inauthentic and that's how it got her and much of the content that those Russian accounts shared was distasteful but it would have been considered permissible political discourse if it had been shared by thing is sort of a zero-some content game there's so much content posted that to some extent facebook is always going to be deciding what to prioritize to people.

"Financial services. Hey you need a loan so that's that's how. They said that they will make money through it <hes> but i actually found in the white paper. Something thing that i think is far more smoking gun right. They spent a lot of time creating this white paper <hes> to announce it on they just put two sentences sentences <hes> to this thing on the fifth section at the at the end of this section of the white paper and it says an additional goal of the association is to develop and promote an open identity standard. We believe that decentralize and portable digital identity is a prerequisite eh financial inclusion and competition and this definitely solves the problem of like a money laundering the upright because if you could prove the identity then it won't be used for drugs and stuff <hes> but what this this can also solidify facebook's control control and knowledge of your identity through wanting to use lebron ca libra pretty much have to verify who you are and basically yeah then not only would they build a draw the financial transactions that you have through your you yeah which the komo news book stuff they already. They already have on you so it's just a matter. They know you like your dog or cat can have a facebook account could make a a facebook counter put all fake information sharing so they have this identity but it's like in many cases now really human they often can't prove uh-huh ends of something like this would essentially force accounts to verify identity and details yeah so i how do you feel in general about privacy on the internet pretty important. I kinda don't i. I'm like you know obviously would bothers me about facebook is when they sell the data the third party companies that have nefarious. You know implications like what we heard about came matt. Have you ever used your phone and yeah. I've been convinced that the that the microphone was on and that never they were listening to you like that's the thing this is what i never got an ad where you're like oh my god. I just talked about this. Yesterday i don't care. I don't care if you've never had that feeling. I've never yes absolutely had that feeling okay yeah so they don't have their microphone on right. They have just become so so good had predicting your next actions through all the websites you visited look. I'll you know if you have a website. They all facebook pixels installed you know yada data and so they have that much information they can literally predict your next action next week. <hes> that's insanely scary then they information to manipulate you sure i just i'm you know. This is why this all right. I'm not saying that like this is not bad. I agree. It's bad bad. I personally don't care because i am not manipulated by robots. I understand how they work and it's and i'm not. I don't honestly care about my own privacy early really don't because i'm like oh. Do you want to look at my balls through the camera of my computer. Go ahead. What are you. What are your balls doing that high up. Hey look i out the top of my mom. I'm just saying i know i'm just saying like if you want to spy on me like i'm the most boring person of all time but i understand that not. Everyone feels feels that way. <hes> and i just go like there's no stopping it. They're just gonna keep doing it. I'm not gonna you know by a piece. I'm not gonna put a piece of tape over my monitor. I'm not gonna stop using my cell phone not going to become a recluse in galicia fucking woods. I'm i'm just not i want to engage in society. I like i like technology. <hes> i think the very obvious things sure by that say is and i think he's a need sandals next week. Alumnae me triumphed by sandals good that you just helped me out back yeah. That's how i feel now. I'm not i'm. I'm certainly not advocating for this. <hes> it's just i don't have as strong feelings on privacy as most people because i don't. I don't like you know like ev. Everyone's a conspiracy..

"Let's do that so <hes> there was money and you would go to the storm use cash yup and they've found out through studying the brain that a win you spend cash <hes> the same things in your brain light up as if you're getting like physically weekly hurt like it is like you're actually like feeling pain when you spend dollars <hes> but when you spend credit cards because you don't pay immediately it's thirty days. It's actually that doesn't happen. <hes> that's what people spend more an easier with credit cards because psychologically it's kind of like this mental hack right right <hes> but now if you take that idea and you go to casinos you're now change your money for chips which aren't even even money and it's there's this effect. It's called the quote like house money effect <hes> and people literally don't even view it as currency her and that's why they do these ridiculous things in casinos because it's kind of not real and so they actually are even more reckless than they are. You're with credit cards so you're saying that like through the distance from the dollar. So that's kind of weird i would i would i. I actually don't when i go to the casino which is very very rare. <hes> and we'll get chips actually liked the chips but the chips feel valuable to to me. They feel more valuable to me than a dollar. The dollar is the piece of paper. A chip is heavy thick. It's got designs on it. It's the same size. It's all kind of the same way yeah. They failed to make you throw them away centrally but it does so i feel the opposite i feel like i want a horde the chips <music> when i get them like you've got the chips but you do anything with the chips only in the casino you can you can trade them for dollars bright but you're saying that like when and when people this is an actual real thing sure but went so when people convert their dollars into chips the chips lose the value of a dollar basically in the mind and they they yeah no that it is i guess money but in the way people broadly act it's as if it is not all right so something psychological there. That's that's interesting i think i would i think the opposite but that's interesting to me so so one of perhaps the effects of taking your money and converting into whatever thing it it'll increase the distance to money so create less pain for a payment which could perhaps entice you to buy more and so if instagram's telling you to buy those shoes or whatever yeah it may make that even easier for you to do because it's just thrown away chips because it's like you're libra grant money like it's like using your balance or something right not real money until that real money yeah right okay <hes> and then you've right and then there's also this peer pressure spending thing because i know you've used vattimo and you kind of see you don't see the amounts that people do be people sending each other money and so we've got hide all my memos private. Oh yeah i mean i don't really use it much. I i use it when we for capi sitter yeah but basically there could be peer pressure spending so cool. That's like a ferriol stuff <hes> now now. I kind of get into the the really good stuff. What do you mean by good good or bad. No like really bad yeah so i thought i thought we were already talking about the bad so nothing nothing about this sounds good in my opinion..

"All right yeah what i really wanna know is. Why are we talking about this because you said it's not gonna come out until the beginning of next year or the first half of next year <hes> there's a lot of time between between now and then to sort of you know take shits on it or what like kinda bury it or the technology doesn't get off the ground and facebook could get even more trouble between now and then which would cause them to slip on this whole thing. I don't know i i there's so that sounds like sounds. I don't i don't want it. Don't want it to exist. Well okay so there is some good okay for example they will be able to dramatically reduce transaction fees and they say by a factor of ten so that's what all cryptocurrency sort of right in promises assist so it's like and this is the whole thing about it is like yeah. They're just they're trying to sell this because look facebook does have the biggest audience in the world right besides perhaps google google google doesn't really speak to anybody in they can get a lot of these <hes> older folks who are who are using facebook enter like are kind of blind to to how like bad facebook is right do buy into this thing and i think if you get the older crowd to adopt it before before the younger crowd like you've that you've got something there right so i don't think it will ever put any chinks in the arm of of a real currency currency yeah <hes> there is just so much volume going against the dollar or the euro. Whatever yeah even if everyone bought there coffees with libra wouldn't really scratch the surface in terms of important so it's not like it's going to unseat some and at the end of the day you have to to pay taxes to the u._s. Government in dollars dollars. You're gonna need dollars and so it kinda. It's going to be this cool side thing right <hes> <hes> but but there's a lot of implications okay so a read a ton of positive stuff and our maybe go into the ferriol the old before we go into like the exact how facebook's gonna like screw your life over okay..
