"FM by the docks. Mandy Harassment is just for the next segment. Then he's got it. He's got a role. Um, get your calls and comment here. Just a second. A couple of other people wanted to ask me about this s B, a program of for the the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. Which is now out of money, and a lot of restaurants are still out of luck. And again. This, um, is there anything Congress can do? Another was money left over from previous covid packages, but a lot of small business and a lot of restaurants in Maryland Have closed or in danger of closing because the SP a fund ran out of money. Yeah, there are hundreds of billions of dollars. We're going to look into it. We think it was unfair that they prioritized minorities. Uh, for that money look at the bottom line is in America. Everybody's supposed to be treated equally, and they did the same thing for farmers. And my farmers were very upset at that. So, yeah, we're gonna We're gonna try to make sure that we do right by them. All right, And that's uh, that was a very popular program. By the way elsewhere we have. Some listeners are asking about the vaccines. And one of our listeners will get to that in just a second, because that email program is still coming up. Let's take another phone call Herb in Eastern. Good Morning, your old congressman Harris. Good morning, Congressman heard. Good morning. We have spoken before in several places of what we've met in Eastern area. But look at what I wanted to bring to your attention is something that the entire Republican caucus good use. On June eight is of this year There was a case in the Boone County, Uh, Circuit Court in Kentucky were plaintiffs won a case against the governor about the mask mandates. The social distancing. They had expert testimony from a man who was involved in over 400 cases of toxic or toxic or infectious exposure and industrial environments. And they basically showed how not only these things violated people's constitutional rights. He also demonstrated how they were medically worthless. Yeah, I'd like you to try to find both of you try to find Daniel Horowitz on Blaze media. His article was June 9th 2021. It was about a Kentucky judge ruling against Governor Brochure of Kentucky. Concerning mask orders. Sure her no, no, no. No Bottom line. And this thing this idea that all Children have to wear massive schools. This is unbelievable. There's new data that basically if you are not immuno, suppressed or have a co morbidity is s a child. You basically no one died in the United States. Unless unless you had a co morbidity or you were in, you know, suppressed. By the way pause wants to know. Will there be a demand that Pelosi conduct a house investigation Now? That eyewitness confirmed the virus was released from the lab. This is far more important than her ridiculous January 6th investigator. Absolutely right. But we may have to wait until after the 2022 election. We take back the house. Then we're going to have a lot of investigations going on about things like that. Next up. Jason Kent Island. Good morning, Jason. Hey, Good morning. Should make Dr Harris already. Funchal. Good morning. So I'm calling. So my son joined the Marines about 11 months ago. And I was, you know, retired from the Navy, myself and my wife been in for 26 years. It felt pretty. I felt pretty good about him going in because we're in a pretty strong position, you know, with President Trump being in there and It looks like everything was going pretty well. Um, you know, recently with with our quick pullout from Afghanistan and resurgence of the Taliban, and also seeing what General Miller had said, you know, on his exit, you know, and So unsettled ways. That it doesn't look too great. You know, I'm feeling a little bit anxiety now for my son. Who's you know? Special weapons? Infantry. Um, you know, I've never been in this position, just wondering if the GOP Congress. The caucuses actually talking now, you know, you know, having gone through Kosovo, myself and Original Persian Gulf, You know, for me, it wasn't too big as you know, I was doing it. But now that my son may be heading over to To go back over there. I know that there are a couple of units that are turning right back around and heading to Kabul. Um is are we looking at another wagon dogs? Sort of situation that keeps some heat off of, uh, the Bidens. Um, GOP started taking a look at, uh, you know, getting ready for this. So I think and first thanks for your service and your wife service and your son's service now. Look, I think that we're probably out of Afghanistan for good for a while. I don't think the president's going to walk that back. I think I think it was a mistake to withdraw to that extent and to announce withdrawals. I mean in general, but that's besides the point look. Your point is well taken. The fact of the matter is and we face the same situation when our when our daughter was, you know, got an appointment to Annapolis during the Obama administration. We were worried about what the military was gonna was gonna be fortunate. Mr. Trump turned it around. But then Mr Biden is just, uh, you know, it's one big, huge social experiment. The fact of the matter is is that your son is a Marine. His objective is to protect the country and to kill enemy period. It's not to have a personal problem. You know what your personal pronoun is. It's not to encourage transgender surgery. We're spending. We're spending money on transgender surgery instead of on weapons systems. This is a huge mistake because I guarantee you, the Russians and the Chinese art. When we take over the house in 2022, we will reverse all of that nonsense to the best to the greatest extent we can. Jason, Thanks again for your service. Your family service.

"Armored dot ca slash security to learn how to build a self defending team so the the next story here is apple and this is something we had mentioned in episode. I believe talking about the new changes that they're rolling out in. Ios fourteen point five which is going to restrict tracking by advertisers. So this is a a pretty pretty big update in fact someone on twitter. Someone named jason. Kent is a privacy advocate. He had said Quotes this is the most significant improvement in digital privacy in the history of the internet's show and it will kneecap facebook. So wow yeah. That's a pretty strong bold statement there but what it is is essentially apple's now giving essentially iphone users a choice now jiwan to allow facebook and similar apps that are running on their platform the ability to track your activity on your phone or you can choose to stop all that tracking altogether and that's significant for facebook in particular because that's how facebook makes money is i guess it in mind that raises the question. So what are they doing right now. That tracks you on an iphone for example like is it outside of the app itself. Or is it just within the i mean if it's within the With the app. It's there must be something outside the app that you're getting is it. Location data is a visits on websites or actually Well the update itself. It's actually including a new feature called app tracking transparency in what that does is basically requires apps to request permission before gathering user or device data. So what this update is doing. Is it changes that identifier to a unique random number to each iphone and that allows advertisers and developers to track your behavior including app usage in web browsing behavior. So it's going to randomize that information which so you're still logged into the app. yes And it can track your. You know your activity within the app. Obviously but it won't know what device you're accessing the app from the idea essentially. Yeah it's random izing somalian advertiser.

The prop that GIG companies love but perhaps more consequential in the long term is prop twenty four, which I was unaware of and let us consider it the proposition that Google and facebook hate quoting recode proposition twenty four also known as the California Privacy Rights and Enforcement Act of twenty twenty CPR. A is supposed to expand a landmark California privacy law that passed two years ago. There's a good chance. Californians will approve this one too. It's framed as legislation that will better protect their privacy in particular sensitive data such as social security numbers, race religion, and health information, and while the proposed law technically. Governs the use and sale of data for Californians. California has an enormous impact on the tech industry, which means CPR a will become the de facto law for all of the US which should sound like a good thing for most people among other impacts of the proposed law. It makes a point of protecting young people by mandating triple fines for infringements against consumers under the age of sixteen, it will allow consumers to restrict the use of GEO location data by third parties effectively, ending practices like sending targeted ads to people who visited a Rehab Center or a cancer clinic, and it will fund the creation of an agency to protect consumer. Privacy lastly, and maybe most importantly, the CPR eight closes loopholes that could be exploited by big tech platforms. One aspect of this is what we're calling these switch language, which clearly aligns the obligations of third parties to serve the interests of consumers. It notes that when a consumer exercises, they're opt out rights and a publisher passes their choice along to all the companies with which works third parties. Those companies must stop reusing that consumers data for any other purpose. This essentially forces those companies to revert to the role of a service provider. The switch language also prevents any wiggle room by not allowing contracts to override this requirement as publishers experienced. In Europe platforms like Google and facebook often use their unbalanced negotiating leverage to force publishers to sign over these data rates. So this section is hugely important for individual publishers that do not have the leverage to force Google or facebook to stop mining data off their properties. Finally, CPR CLARIFIES that publishers are not responsible for third parties that violate the previous section as long as they do not have actual knowledge of the violation taken together. These provisions reflect a thoughtful understanding of how data flows in the digital economy. They also put the onus squarely on big tech companies to tailor their data collection practices in accordance with consumer preferences and quote. In the piece I just quoted from Jason Kent says, CPR, a isn't perfect, but it is well intentioned. But while you may hear tech giant's warning that or hurt small publishers, he says, you should probably consider the source of those warnings and.

"Simple. Mark Your calendars were apparently going to have the biggest day ever of tech congressional. Testimony Representative David Cellini the chair of the House Judiciary Committee's antitrust. Says that Apple, CEO Tim Cook has agreed to testify before the panel in late July alongside the CEOS of facebook Amazon and Google Apple insider gives you the tick by tick of how this all went down, quote, facebook, CEO Mark. Zuckerberg and Google CEO sooner. Pichai committed to testify before lawmakers in June though they condition their participation on the appearance of other executives involved in the inquiry Amazon CEO Jeff. bezos is also expected to testify after being threatened with a subpoena and quote. And I couldn't do better giving you the color commentary on what we might expect from this in a few weeks than this twitter exchange from Cara. Swisher, so let me just quote quote, unquote I, while tech leaders have appeared before Congress before the gathering of the four horsemen of the tech pacalypse should be an epic show, but that is only if the lawmakers do their job and ask questions about the true impact of their power on competition and quote do which the information's Jessica lesson replied. I think this is exactly what the CEOS wanted. No one is the star of the show and so little time for each and then Jason. Hirschhorn of REF tweeted quote, will it matter? Matter. That's now four instead of one tough to focus, and no one at these hearings has proven to the public. They truly understand the issues to which Jason Kent. Replied I hear your concerns, but that's unfair. Having watched closely, a few members have become very educated on the issues along with committee staff. Most important will be keeping to a limited subcommittee, so members can do follow up and have plenty of time. I, hear you and understand but the perception. Even the Zuckerberg hearing was unfair. The issue was format. Rush Job, timing and facebook lobby capture that's all changed in two years. A lot has been learned on staff level same in other parliaments work to do and quote. And then I also saw someone else on twitter last night. Though I couldn't find the tweet say bezos will be the target of the hearings Zuckerberg will attract the cameras and the headlines, and meanwhile cook and Pichai will probably just hope to hang back in the cut a bit and try.

"The first big tech. Ceo to be questioned on Capitol Hill earlier this year. We saw Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg testify on two separate occasions. Twitter senior Jack Dorsey also had his moment in the hot seat. US representatives had the chance to question on everything from user data privacy to its push into China. So how did his performance in Washington's hotseat compare to the likes of other Silicon Valley giants here to discuss digital contact next? Jason Kent also with us economy founder and our Bloomberg contributor, different Capac Trix. So Jason as I understand it. You've watched every single one of these hearings word for word. How do you think pitch is delivery his performance compared to those prior? Yeah. You know, I think one of the more striking things was how congress did was flipping around on you. You know, they're getting smarter. Every time we have a hearing. And so I think the quick take today was you know, that congress still can't ask questions of these big powerful CEO's, which we heard out of the Zuckerberg. Facebook hearings back in the spring, but I'm watching them closely, and they're asking savvier and savvier questions. I think there's zoning in on some key topic areas as they should David. And I would agree that the questions were. Better informed. And they were certainly when Mark Zuckerberg testified more broadly, David, what do you think about how Sundar Pichai presented himself? This was obviously he's first time in the hot seat as we understand it. He does not love being a spokesperson for Google. He much prefers to be the engineer behind the scene. So that taken into consideration what's your assessment? Well, I think he came across as earnest, but I don't think he really tried to express his sympathy with their concerns enough, for example, when the congressman was holding up his phone and saying could you track me across the room? He was answering in ways that we're technically accurate that he didn't need it was based on the apps on the phone. But what do you really should do is say, look, we at Google understand that the American people are increasingly getting nervous about how much we are tracking them. And that's something. We're thinking hard about he didn't say hang on hang on. Because actually have that exchange. Let's listen to this exchange with Representative POE, all ding his phone if I walk over there and sit next to Mr. Johnson. And carry my phone does Google know that I was sitting here, and then I moved over there. You're welcome anytime judge. Yes. Or no. I genuinely don't know without knowing who don't know. I think Google obviously does. Now, David he was holding up an iphone not an Android phone, but certain Google apps could have been downloaded on the phone. They could have been using Google via safari on the iphone aren't there any number of ways? Google could have been tracking that phone. Yes. And I think his answer was overly technical one. Unfortunately, he wasn't even really allowed to say it. But the reality is the New York Times this week this incredible article about how location services that we inadvertently authorize on our phones. Both I phone and Android are tracking us to an extreme degree. This is a really serious problem that we are all subjected to. And I think he has to recognize that he will be called back to congress to talk about that further down the road. I predict right Representative Cecil any indicated as much now he did say this when it comes to protecting user privacy user security. Take a listen protecting the security of our users. What really keeps me? And it's something we invest a lot over the years, we work with law enforcement because we rely on their intelligence to help us assess threats, but it's a comprehensive effort, and it's something we. That struck me Jason is one of the bigger admissions of the day that yes, he is concerned about how well this company is protecting your privacy this as know on Monday before the hearing Google revealed another breach of user data Google plus accounts for each yet again. So what did you make of that admission from Sundar Pichai? Jason I think there was no way for him not to admit that. I mean, it's especially when he's been sandwich with questions about their possible entry into China, which he really artfully tried to dodge. But he the other day. Congressman Cecil is going to be running the anti-trust subcommittee and a few months. And I think he's got to be a little more honest with those answers because this isn't going away. There's still a question though, will Republicans be on board with antitrust regulation of Google? It wasn't necessarily clear from Representative good lots interview that we conducted as well. Several Republicans in the room said, I don't want to regulate you. But you know, where David do you think Republicans are actually going to fall down on this? That's a really good question. I think it's hard to say. As the Representative good luck. Said, you know, they're generally opposed to restricting companies are sort of leaning toward more lenient approach toward business. But there is a lot of concern about the sheer scale of these entities on both sides of the aisle. I do think Jason I we're talking about it before I think there's really a possibility that some creative ways may be arrived at to really just sort of put more oversight on all these giants that have acquired this unprecedented scale of influence over modern society. We don't have any real rules constraining them, and we need something. Even though I can't claim I know what they should be. Now, there was one issue that quite frankly, I was a little disappointed didn't get more airtime in this hearing. And that was YouTube Representative Nate learnt didn't mention it at the at the beginning. He asked what what Google is doing to combat extremist content on YouTube and Pichai indicated that the way that Google takes videos down is video by video. They don't block accounts in particular. Do you think Jason that Pichai dodged a bullet in that? He didn't get more questions about YouTube. I think that's that's a good point. I think I think he did he did dodge that bullet. And that's where Facebook taken a lot of heat in their product offering. And how it how it affects us. This information and other violent content that can spread through and YouTube is very much a part of that discussion. I think he he did avoid a lot of those tougher questions. Go back to last year. I think it was Bloomberg that reported that Russia today was the number two news channel on YouTube preferred which is they're supposedly curated version to be kind of clean and better quality content. And you know, those types of questions are difficult questions for the that then intersect with human decisions in terms of what they're offering us as the public. Any user with the quick search concede that YouTube is rife with disinformation with conspiracy theories with the very things that congress is so concerned about David should should you be getting more scrutiny just as much if not more than Facebook. I don't think they should be getting more scrutiny than Facebook. I think they should be getting a lot of scrutiny. I actually think YouTube has marginally done a better job than Facebook at controlling and and taking a little more of an editorial oversight role not a lot. But a more than Facebook Facebook. It's entirely unwilling to do that at all YouTube has done something in that regard. I generally don't see YouTube as being as toxic a social weapon as Facebook, particularly in countries that are worth over -tarian is rising authoritarianism is rising, etc. But clearly all believe all these companies in some sense or meet. Media companies and they have to start acting more. Like, it exactly where the line is Jason and online disagreement about that. But but there is there is more moderating and oversight. They have to provide a lot of outstanding questions remaining for Sundar Pichai and other tech executive David Kirkpatrick, founder of taxonomy, Jason Kidd digital contact next. Ceo. Thank you both for joining us today coming up Morgan Stanley.

"Facebook of censoring, conservative content, literally thousands and thousands of complaints coming in and you just can't do that. So I think that Google and Twitter and Facebook, they're really dreading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful. It's not fair to large portions of the population and then economic adviser. Larry cudlow said the administration was. Taking a look at possible regulations on the industry. Brian Barrett is news editor at wired magazine. He's in Birmingham, Alabama, and Brian. This has been an ongoing aquisition from the right. It was heightened after several platforms removed content from Alex Jones. This is the Trump supporter who's also the man behind some pretty disgusting. Conspiracy theories tell us more about what Google and the industry are saying about the charge of suppressing conservative media. Sure. So Google is saying that look, they don't incorporate political leanings into their search results, and that's probably true. If you look at Google news results, which is what Trump specifically is talking about a recent research came at last month that says, actually they are pretty mainstream. They stick with if anything they over index for large publications like the New York Times and CNN, which of course, if you're Trump means fake news. But in general, these are just mainstreamed reputable reputations that will use leans on primarily and we know search results aren't the same for everyone because you've got your past. Search requests. It's an algorithm that can build. That's right. Although I would say it was interesting about Google news is that people actually do get a fairly uniform set of results, whether you are liberal or conservative. I think Google has intentionally made this sort of a more neutral playing field, which I think is important. And when you look at the possibility of regulation or a possible response from Google, the worry becomes does Google end up just turning Google news into yet another filter bubble like pigs with news, feeds of comfort. So many people reading from consultants like Jason Kent who's with digital content. Next, this is an online publishing industry group. The president's tweets, this morning are flat out absurd. This was about how Google was using a political bias, but President Trump's most recent claims might have been inspired by something that Lou Dobbs said on the FOX business network on Monday night, he highlighted an article from the website PJ media that said it had conducted what it called an unscientific study in which ninety six percent of Google search results for the. Trump were articles from left leaning sites. There was a discussion at CPAC, the conservative political action conference. Recently, you know, ballroom filled with people, listening to a panel, talk about suppression of conservative views on social media first amendment issue, even though just about every analyst is saying, it doesn't happen. As you said, it just happens to be mainstream papers that come up the most. There is a firm belief that this happens. I think the core of this issue is it's even less Google issue as it is a free press issue in some ways, not to overstate it. But the study that Lou Dobbs cited listed any publication basically to the left of of overtly partisan publications like Breitbart or the daily caller. All of those were listed as left wing media, which I think at a certain point, this is part of the broader attempt to de legitimize the mainstream press on the part of Donald Trump, and that's why it's going to be really hard to convince him and other conservative people who feel this way that this is not happening because when you look at the results, yes, the largest most established public Asians are getting promoted more, but that is because they are large and established. It is not because of any political viewpoint. Similarly, you know, fringe left-wing sites don't get promoted on Google news results because they are not large and established..

"Hello, and welcome back to tectonic. A podcast that looks at the way technology is changing our lives. I'm Richard waters west west-coast senator the financial times in San Francisco. Last week, we heard from a pioneer of official intelligence software about how to bring greater diversity and accountability to the algorithms that guide out his in this episode. We're bringing you a discussion from the F t.'s future of news conference in Neo class week, and they often math of Cambridge analytical data leak. We looked at the Power of the platforms by many people get my news, how are they working with publishers? I'll be doing enough to combat fake news and do they will too much Power. I global media at its Matthew garra Han put the questions to the experts. He was joined onstage by Campbell Brown head of news, punishments Facebook, Emily bell director of the center of digital journalism at Columbia University, Jason Kent CEO digital content. Next on Richard Gingras vice president of news that Google is that discussion. So it's been a week few Campbell. We, we could cut to the cuts how how things been this in the last few days. Look, it's it's it's been a rough week. It's it's frankly been a rough year, but you know, we, we are in a position now where we have to be judged by our actions. You know, I mean, people I can just tell you inside the company and outside the company. People people are very upset. I'm upset. You know this breach of trust the tappan this Mark described it last night it, you know, it doesn't feel good for anyone we have. I think as tech company been too focused on the positive and not nearly vigilant enough about the negative and we've been caught flatfooted and there is an awakening that's taking place inside the company where the mentality is very much all hands on deck in terms of trying to address. This, but but people have to see how we perform in our promises and you know, they have to judge us by our actions of the criticisms was this week, Chris criticisms, but this week, why it took so long for Mark Zuckerberg and show somebody to come out and say something. Do you have a sense of why? For four days later, they, I think whenever you're in a situation like this, there's this tension between wanting to get out immediately and give people some information. Even if you don't have all the facts and the answers you're giving people might be a little half baked versus waiting and doing the legwork internally to find out everything you can about what happened and then coming forward when you actually have answers in a plan for how you're going to dress the problems and. Mark is very deliberate person. So I'm not surprised that he wanted to approach it that way as media. You know, that makes us a little anxious, but that tensions always going to exist and I understand it. I want to open this is to the panel, but do we think pal that that the Samir culpable, the statements last night will go any way to solving some of the end allying concerns that people have about about Facebook. Navy, cats. Well, several things we've heard this before, so I think it was. I think it was the minimum that Facebook could G so it wasn't. It was a make open, but didn't really give us anything that we haven't had before they have said that they would fix this kind of. Attitude to fix the problems with privacy. An it hasn't happened. It's been a horribly mishandled crisis, which is just been made much worse really by the company that doesn't seem to understand how stories travel on the infrastructure that is actually built. But but what I would say is the, I think Campbell was race, skeptical student, the green room. I actually think that this could be good for Facebook because these problems have always been. This has been coming and the fact that it's rive now gives them an opportunity to take the kind of remedial action that will really define whether or not they have a future, not. So I think that it's a very significant problem they have because they platform is designed full the research relation of. Content which is largely undifferentiated, and it's peds with a laws, undifferentiated very sort of kind of high-speed targeting system. And that's, you know, doubts creates cultural problems. You have a cultural appearing later, this conference which was created by exactly. That that platform on those technologies and some of the technologies and Google's well, big question can engineering solve coach will problems. I teach in a school where we teach both computer computer scientists and journalists together, and the zone to apply engineering fixes to culture is overwhelming and it almost never works. So I think that the key issue everybody here, including non platform companies, how do you then fix culture? And there isn't a silver bullet for it. There is a kind of we're gonna get faint news off the platform, it cetera, but everybody is going to have to change. They do really significantly if we won't to and it sounds dramatic protect, but I think is to mug talked about being open to regulation last night. Yeah. What would that look like? Mark? I think focus then on on election regulation. I think that's the the low hanging fruit, frankly, where I think it's going. And if you, if you look at all their marks said last night. It's interesting that took as long as it did because he said, I'm sorry, which was the easiest thing that he should have said and probably the most important thing we screwed up. But you didn't really say the new to Emily's point. And there was one exchange in the New York Times interview that call attention to where he, he made the argument that in the business model, Facebook and Google is pretty clear, it's collection of data across the web to do micro targeted advertising. That's what it is. And you put free services on top of that. So the consumers are all happy. He made a point Mark may point to the times that. That the business model couldn't be changed. It was a necessary to doing business to keep the product free and he's saying about company that makes twenty billion dollars a year in profit, fifty plus margins. So that is insincere. And that's the thing that's he's got to come to grips with. I think we're, we're going is regulation around data. It's already happened in Europe and it's going to become an international discussion. It's going to go to the core of the business mile and that's why it's scary to them, and it should be the Facebook. Maybe we'll clarify one thing too, from what Jason said that protecting people's data is by far the most important thing. And so the delay, Mark speaking, it's not about him trying to figure out what to say. It's about actually doing the necessary work internally to make sure that people stayed was protected given what had happened. It was known from two thousand fifteen. Just a Tony plug from on high. Base, which is he said in his blowpipes I knew we knew about this because the gods reported it in two thousand fifteen ousted the intercept and other independent journalism. Lost. They go to publish the whistle, our Facebook with threatening legal action. You can't have it both ways. It really has to fi as a company, whether it's who signs it is all in this. And I let me just say, I, I agree with that. It was a mistake to not have addressed it then. And if it were me, I would not have threatened to sue the guardian. Not probably our wisest move. Richard. You look at all this from what you said with a sense of. Thank God. It's not us. I mean.

"Explain to people because i feel like we have we have a are actually uk teams visiting right now and it's so much bigger of a deal in europe and i feel like here for whatever reason americans don't like to talk about regulation or privacy or any of these kind of things just like whatever it'll workout but gdp ours of real threat and by the way so so i'm with people on the notion of because i don't think consumers in and i've had this conversation with jason kent who is like you now wakes up at five am and tweets about privacy in goes to bed at one a m the next day and it's still tweeting about privacy it mean it is a major hotbutton issue for him and i i'm like i get that no pai blah blah blah everyone's always just sort of consumers don't care but turns out the regulators in europe a care and be have like real muscle they don't just have a badge they've got a rollover they don't rollover witness case in point two point seven billion dollar fine for google which global have to pay gap but this is going to sweep up a lot of other companies it is in and so in my message to be look i don't consider myself an expert on gdp are i know enough to know that people should be taking it very seriously taking a hard look and making sure there and compliance because i'm afraid regulators in europe have clout they have by the badge at gun yet here like i think we sometimes under under rate how active eu regulators can be and how much they can impact us businesses because here like regulators on my god they'll go like so far down the road i mean look at how long it took them to act on spam i mean it was like ruining email and like they were like no we're not going to do anything yet still gonna be voluntary whereas in europe they just sorta dismissed.
