Nine hundred started with sort fulltime masters speech recognition. You're using your wall things back then. That was sort of. You can do that about sums watching the cotton. Dl talk yesterday. Where a couple of lines of code can do that. But this writing everything from scratch in c in terms of audio processing fifties and and i've been never confronted themselves and there was there was a need for something. Kinda graphical and i don development for awhile and answer. Windows three came out. I think you're on june nineteen ninety and i So cool your concern dusen. Windows graphical is from speech patterns. And mike you're next so forth down again more chance occurrences a low company was starting to do windows and said hey you know obviously not too many people doing that stage said hey. Join to join to join us so i saw that again. That's what started the decade of doing windows see transitioning cpas plus windows. St kfc com hiram. It's funny because obviously was been toying with a proposed for desktop right now sort of i don't know what you call it control back. Go throwbacks ecstasy. That's what's what's old is new again. So when when did you. When did you actually start with With developing kotlin than so. I'm trying to was the announcement. Okay oh in about five years ago now. Is it a country member. anyway there was a natural icon. I you know to be honest. I hadn't i know a lot of people being aware columnist stage. And we're very excited about it. I i was a little bit in the dark. It wasn't something new to me. I haven't even wear and to another coin spos- as in most companies. We probably weren't in a position to start using cotton straight away. You know And i have had. And i have an obligation to restore cocoa puffs. It's actually it's an aug project hasn't up hope people's find somewhat useful. That actually does but for me. Personally i use it i e kind of overloaded somewhat in terms of as a pop from try technology so when the under doctors coronas came up first of all Used to try goes out. And then went. Kalkin emerged start reggie microsoft katainen and similarly montecot from down the road and And then you know as is frequently. The case trying that out. There then became a platform. Say okay now in the workplace okay. This looks interesting. Let's start to use his here and then shortly after that. Then maybe down. The road asked announced. Maybe we start to use it working and we start to use a gradually in africa project and we ended up doing a for various reasons. We did a company rewrite of our project and we started from the ground up dan with cartoon or katelyn underdog extra bonus cortines and so forth. So so is this your first multiplatform project or not so does sage. i wasn't using work. Under gorbachev sort of had supposed to give you know a little bit more brought on their. You know like this. Be working on mobile for eleven years now and i guess over time like many of us you know we would have source accession cross platform. I guess there's always sort of cross pot from monty python but cross platforms kind of sounders. Right once so reproaches. The dab senator in reactnative approaches. And you know over the course of various projects in the previous companies in new product. Monday or somebody coming in that. Have read some headline. This allows you to do everything in one place all your code face. We don't need to have all these separate irish and each time you took sort of had to move. That weren't approved was an us. Disapprove that dickey. We're gonna do competitions. And we had to prove that this wasn't suitable for the type about. We were developing this platform. it's christians. We needed an end user experience. We need But i'm saying that is supposed as a segue to you know I guess what come interesting monte platform. Because when i when cosimo mantra was aware of it i think we're not to those nineteen towards the end of that. It's sort of immediately struck me as okay. This is a pragmatic saint approach finally to the sharing of code across multiple platforms mobile. I've been involved by the way sort of number of initiatives over the years for free. Willion superstars shared code into office. Which is at least somewhat more sane approach but. I don't know if you guys have worked with john. I had to work jay. You know unfortunately goldstone feel like. That's one of those topics that if you can you usually avoid it. I guess yeah if you can avoid using it as well as we various we had to use it in their practical use. And it's one thing using stateless knight ridder touch it can function as in which you maybe media engine i. I just wanted to say on the topic of jane. I think this is. This is going to become a bit more interesting again now. Also with With all the topics around compulsive for desktop because of a bunch of lake system integrations. I dunno things like global hot keys or stuff the. jvm just doesn't really expose. so i think some some of the people at the forefront. They're wanting to write libraries. Yeah they might might have to go that route anyway. Yeah you know if if you're using it. I robot michael state library that district district functions wanting using your compete shared logic with the framework with the training involved with life cycle aspects. Dot is a different story completely debugging crush reports of So haven't gone through. That in us was having seen the sort of attempts sort of pulling in pushing us towards cross. Platform frameworks cottam. Okafor's was immediately. You know the caught cartoon. The cartoon obviously was an advantage a positive from my perspective but more generally i think it was a sane approach it was targeting shared logic target. Had kind of a mechanism in place where you could sort of. This is critical. You could incrementally adopted you know you start putting in for some small area. And i think that generally by today's still is that you start doing that in you take some particular business. Logic may be may be remote. Api endpoint access or so forth and then graduated up from there. And you know there's another kind of a discussion point around how you socialize that how you get in particular iowa's developers interested in an accepting of the but it's the topic himself but certainly certainly from that perspective. At least i think it's very important. Start small and and as the key thing about the type forums. It appealed point was that it had that capability that it it was lended itself to that sort of adoption. Yes so so just to kind of to recap your point. You feel that the that the main difference between cartland multi platform and these other cross platform. Toolkits is is what exactly that you can adopt them. Incrementally that you that you stay away from From what part would you say is kind of the most interesting here. This quite a few different aspects. I think cutting across different areas You know on one hand. I think If you've been involved in from at all you're very kevin gallagher and sort of pre advocates in and you know of this for some time and i think he did. He described it as a sort of perspective risk management as well. You know you're trying to you're trying to avoid locking out upsetting kita one key differentiator. A there's a. There's a number of them. I think but won't different areas. If you decide to use react native reuse flutter or use a variety of other coaches that have been there over. The years is a song that amount of of and and you know it's an all or nothing sort of approaching the with with commodity farm and it allows you to manage. You know you. Can you can sort of put in graduate. Start using it. Then the flip side of that is this touches on a couple of areas obviously but folks on sheriff business logic as ios an underdeveloped. I wanna use the best of breed technologies ideas get companies. That can when i on on iowa. Sony's combine that we have to frame of their likewise android. Cauchon coatings influence worth and that. That's the key difference here. You know that focus that you know it. I think touches on another area. I think we've got sort of a certain level of maturity culture monte platform where i think a good sign some regards that we've gone beyond okay. This is proof of concept What's it about renown sort of digging deeper into so architectures and different approaches. You can use. And i think this is is little bit as sort of a simplistic way sometimes mentioned quotas just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do something so i think we've be careful. You know it is. Its main sort of setting point is is as focused on shared logic. I see a lot of discussions pushing further up the stack. You know the view model and potentially you you hear in the context composed nowadays. of course. why can't we to compose. and. I think there's a danger to honest. Econ generally too much of a dangerous on too far up and then it just becomes another spot framework. I think our approach in general

"I'll provide you some insight as well where you can find these books. Here we go. Our first night out today is Christie. She's mentioned a book called knowledge is power a logical meaning of Life by sailor B's she told me this that in short it made her look at life in a different perspective. It also enhanced her intellectual capabilities. That in itself is powerful from what I know of this book, it offers attainable ideas of God afterlife our time here on Earth and what we do with it, it can also expand our views of Life as a different Christy. This is in line with something. I always say here on the show except knowledge is power knowledge can be scary. Yeah, that's safe what you don't know can't hurt you or the simple mind is at ease Rings true. The more we learn in realize of our world the more threats, we recognize and more tears are available to our waking and sleeping hours. In this case though. I believe all the knowledge given in this book is for the good. It has only expanded Christie's View for the better. So Christy, thank you so much for sharing this with me. I'll be reading it in the future if anyone has anything to say on this book. Let me know read on chrystie or second not reader. Today is Kenneth. Okay. This has shared a few titles with me including the Diary of Anne Frank Night by Elie Wiesel. And where the crawdads sing by Delia owns all of these books had an impact on him and my favorite thing he shared with me is that the third book he mentioned actually moved him to physical action. Something that I find incredibly intriguing. I find it indefinitely beautiful with words on the page can move us physically, whatever that maybe he first mentioned the Diary of Anne Frank and this is a piece of non-fiction literature. I have not mentioned yet on a show. But I'm glad to finally have the chance. It goes without saying that this piece of history is largely important factual emotional terribly sad and eye-opening piece of work. There is much to be gained from reading this diary as we learned first-hand the true terrorist at the Holocaust of Jewish people during the reign of Nazis in Germany. This is a book that we will all read portions of in school like sometimes it's hard to understand the weight each and every word carries when you read it as a child. I strongly recommend going back as an adult and feeling seeing all of these events first-hand. If you're in the right mindset. It can really push you towards more research being a better person to your fellow human beings just understanding Warfare and racism and its effects on Humanity. I can't help but feel that this wrong solid with what is going on in our world right now. Well what has been going on forever for I more on these heavy subjects another time. But Knight Ridder Kenneth has also mentioned another book a book called Night by Elie weisel might just mention quickly that I'm very grateful for each and every book mentioned just readers because it helps me grow my to-be-read list and not just for pleasure reads. Although Kenneth mentioned this book. He didn't mention why he listed it, but I'll tell you just a bit about what I know of it. I work from nineteen sixty by romanian-born American author Elie weisel. What I'm learning of this book is that considered one of the Pinnacle books regarding the Holocaust is short and fragmented true narrative about the author caring for his father who was in declining health? During the end of the second World War. Just because also the first in the trilogy night Dawn and day. I understand that this book is incredibly heavy when it comes to its themes and that must be pretty obvious from its content. Loss of faith and much more of a themes that carry through it appears to be an incredibly personal piece of writing as well. I don't know exactly how but I know that this book has had a profound impact on many. I love the fact that books are incredible way of learning about different cultures and struggles of humanity. Thirdly the book where the crawdads sing by Delia Owens a modern work of fiction released in 2018 and an enormously popular book. It's won many awards has sold thousands of copies. This book is a telling them story of two mysterious timelines that eventually intertwined with each other. The book follows themes of Love growth and more set in the marshes of North Carolina. This book inspired countless to go out and explore some of these marshes and that's just really cool. Really interested in this book and sounds like a wonderful and gripping tale. So thank you so much for your contribution, Kenneth and read on. Our third night readers a day is Wally. He brought to my attention a title that I am excited to share with you all if you've not heard of it, it is called Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance off a 1970s work of biography. the 1970s biography laced with fiction despite the title because not about Motorcycle Maintenance. It is a philosophical book and delves into the concepts of past lives equality how we carry ourselves and the qualities we choose to Harbor a some striking ways of looking at life. One main character has a way of living life where he flows like water. He chooses not to learn about his new motorcycle and how to help keep it he chooses not to read the manual for his new motorcycle wage, but teaches them how to upkeep it but rather deals with the problems as they come and he learns from them this Outlook of life has an effect on the reader and narrator. The book becomes deeper in place of ideas and philosophies from some of the greatest philosophers of all time including Play-Doh. I have heard that this book has a profound effect on the reader and really expands your outlook on life. Not only that but how different our personalities can all be how that's just fine. Finding our place in this world and being comfortable with the way we approach life. I'm not trying too hard to change others. It's something I feel lies heavy in this book. Let me know if you think otherwise while he tells me that this book helps him reflect and grow as a human each time. He reads it. Well, I really excited to get my hands on it while and I hope everyone else enjoys it as well Wally. Thanks so much for your contribution and read on our fourth. Not reader today is Georgia. Jordanna has mentioned to me a book called The Alchemist by Paulo, Coelho. I have to outright say that I'm super excited to read this book. It seems incredibly gripping. It's just the type of book that I would adore. It is a work of fiction released in nineteen eighty-eight and released in English nineteen. Ninety three. It Was Written in only two weeks in this considered a pinnacle of work and fiction that can provide self-help I love what the author has said that he was able to write this book in such a short amount of time because it was already written in his soul. This book is absolutely not a self-help book though by any means because I work of fiction following a young Shepherd who has had a reoccurring dream of discovering treasure in the ancient pyramids. This book has been adapted into theatrical plays and comic books. Jordanna gave us this book has helped her realize that everything and everyone are connected and whatever's happening to.

Your you know at best number one number two you can call on people to help you to get those ideas out there and you can create interesting kinds of content to get those ideas out into the marketplace. A publisher typically just goes through the process like a machine you know they have the list of twenty five people are going to send a galley to. They have a list of forty-eight people that they're going to send the press release to and you're one of twenty five books that they're announcing this year. But you're the only one in who is focused on your book and you're the one that can get it out there the other piece of advice that I give to everybody who asks about Book Promotion Ocean is spend as much time promoting your book as you've spent writing your book and the vast majority of authors will never do do that because they spend a year or two writing a book and they'll spend a month or two promoting it. Why should every entrepreneur focus on purpose values and community not just selling products and services? How can they make the shift if they aren't already doing so? I'm a huge believer in passion and I'm also a huge believer that passion Ashen is infectious. So if you're just talking about your products and services you're just pushing commodities out there but if you're talking in about how you're passionate about something and you're tapping into the passion that other people have that's incredibly readily powerful. That's a true human connection and I think in today's world what we're all hungry for is true human connection because there's too many products are ready. There's too many people out there on social media already. There's too many organizations and entities trying trying to get our attention but a true human connection. That's what we're all after and if you're focused on your passions and the communities that might be interested in your passions your way more likely to make a human connection just tossing products and services out there to the mark you co authored fin accuracy with your daughter. What have you learned from each other that has made you a better marketer and her a better suit so Phan Argosy was so so much fun to write with my daughter? She's now twenty six years always starting that journey when she was twenty one years old and she's so different from me obviously a woman obviously a different generation. She's a medical school student She's also mixed race and we share different passions. We we had to be people who transformed from father daughter relationship to full partners on this project. Otherwise it wouldn't have worked on so we developed a much stronger relationship as result. Would I learned as a marketer which is incredibly important for me you to learn is that there's differences with the millennial generation with Gen Z.. And there's differences with people will who identify as mixed race or who identify as LGBTQ. And those were things that I knew intellectually but I never really had had strong exposure to and those were things that my daughter brought to this project. That really helped me become a way better marketer and Frankly a better person in understanding the motivations behind people who are very very very different for me I think in the case of Rako all. I can't speak for her. I think that she understands that as a doctor which she will soon be. She's in her fourth year of medical school and she's going to be an emergency zero doctrine mid twenty twenty that to be doctors partly about communications. Partly about being able to be understood something that I know well having been a marketer all my whole career and I think she recognizes that being a good communicator. Being able to articulate your ideas well being able to speak in public being able to to write effectively are all going to make a wave editor Dr Throughout your twenty five year career. In the marketing field you've been at the forefront of some of the biggest trends like the rise of social media what are some of the marketing tool strategies and techniques that you would recommend people looking to build their brand so I think it's incredibly powerful today is is the idea of using images photographs video and using those images to show a human human connection. I think we're all striving for a human connection today and I've become a real big fan of the idea of a simple selfie Alfie. Something that people think is frivolous the idea of a photograph of you looking into a camera. Essentially we research the idea of neuro science. How people react to things like photographs and through the power of what's called mirror neurons? We believe when we see a Selfie. Oh fee when you see a photograph of someone looking directly at the camera our brain translates translate that to we are in the personal space of with that person. We are together in the same room physically with that person. That's what our brain tells us. Our ancient DNA tells us and too many people people focus on things like photographs of being very formal portrait style. Type photos that they use in business. And I'm a big believer in the idea of. How can you get casual with your video? How can you get with your photographs? How can you show the passion that you have through the images that you put out and that makes you a better marketer? Makes you better able to connect on a human level with those people that you're trying to reach and what's your best piece of career advice. My best piece of career advice is to celebrate getting fired fire and I just think I've been fired three times every single time. I've ended up with something better. I think the idea India of doing what you believe being an agent of Shane getting out there and making things happen has the potential sel to have a a fabulous career Wynonna company if you bring the company in a new direction you. Are you become a superstar. But if you don't don't manage to make that happen you can lose your job but then you weren't destined to be a successful in that organization anywhere so do your thing make it happen if it happens.

administration saying no don't do that please don't in fact they had a recent incident with a bomb threat at a Rocklin school couple years ago and they said that actually the parents were the biggest part of the problem that police had to deal more with them and that was a big distraction from dealing with the actual crisis and solving that problem they say they have an alert system they'll alert

Essential anime. Yeah. I mean, still hip hop. Hip. Hop is not loaf lo fi beans. I guess it can be but. I found myself like bobbing my head, and I was like this doesn't happen. What is happening to be at least a ribbon. Opening this weird? I'm succumbing to the rhythm at beats. It was very. Yeah. Like, I was just like ooh groove in its very chill. It has it sets up a very chill vibe yet. It also establishes what you're expecting for the rest of the show right off the bat of, hey, here's immediately samurai imagery with hip hop. Yeah. And that's what you're for. So one of my favorite things about the show is the way the weather. The narrator has a voice or if it's just like onscreen things the narrator kind of plays with the viewer. And I really like that. It's very Jane the virgin, I don't know if either of you walked it. I've seen bits and pieces. Yeah. Well, the narrator in that also kind of plays with audience and like interact with the audience, and I think that's a really cool thing. Because before the show starts, it's like, just so, you know, this isn't accurate. Historical portrayal, not that you care enjoyed the show. There's. Does the preview or kind of tease from the next up? So early techs comes up saying, we'll see where the gang ends up in the city in you hear Moog in gene, the maker like what what are we going there? Shut up just go with it. So they can see the text of the Knight Ridder saying so it breaks four win the narrator a fair amount. Love it. I love. Yeah. So we start with two men that are about to be beheaded Ono there. Obviously, the main characters out of her distinct differentiate it from everyone else in that scene. They must be important. I bet you're wondering how I that's me. Little scratchy transitions, and then we're taking back to one day earlier. But not before they make them a stake of taking us all the way into the future where there are cars. And I was like what's happening earlier encouraged Japan, we will nose to fetal Japan, go way back. I love that love it. So we're taking back to one day earlier before these boys are beheaded we're shown gross dudes in a restaurant harassing women. Harassing an old, man. One of them was just grabbing church being jerks. And then we're also shown a crowd of people around a guy who's begging the governor for to keep his job. And the governor's like give me the money in your pockets. And then we'll see and he's like this is spare change to me. And there's one person the crowd who is not happy about it. A tall man who stands out not big glasses yet only too. Well, I guess that's not too common in this this era. This this time this place. So then we so we get we get flashes of both in their kind of mixed up in my mind. But then we see the restaurant where there's a waitress named FU. And a dude comes in. And he now that you've said the cowboy bebop thing he definitely reminds me of my. The role laid back attitude and he's Steve bloom. Yeah. There you go. The perfect. He comes in. And yeah, he comes in and sits down in the waitresses. Like, hey, what can I get you? And he just says water, and she's like, oh, well, I mean, we only serve customers. So you're going to have to buy stuff any kind of takes a look around, and he beckons to her and she comes down to hear what he has to say he says for fifty dumplings I'll get rid of all of these men and she's like. Please no fight. Please don't kill people in my restaurant. But then can I do some murder in your place that you'll have to clean up? If you also give me free food is that is that a deal. So as she's walking away, she is taking TV to another table, and she trips and the t- splashes all over customer, and he is not happy about that. And he decides that the only way to compensate for his embarrassment is to take one of her fingers. We find out from other patrons gossiping kinda like whispering to each other. That this is the governor's kid and he's overlap hole. Yeah. So I thought that was cool is that he is that we're seeing cool him. We're seeing we find out the spike Spiegel characters name his Moog in. We're seeing Moog in deal with the governor, son. And then we're seeing Jin the glasses haired guy deal with the governor. And I was like, oh, this this is cool to fronts. So. He they kind of pin food down. And they're getting ready to do it. The good ready to hurt her. And she just yells one hundred dumplings and move stands up. And he's like that sucks. Your guys lives are worth one hundred dumplings. What is that five dumplings a piece, and then the cook in the back is like his match. Maybe that's that's not right. This the close. Yeah. This is sort of where this show really grabbed me because I just love that like very dumb humor on these like very tense situations. Yeah. So it's at this point, we get like intercut fights of Moog in fighting the guys in the restaurant, and then gene taking out the governor's bodyguards. And it was at this point. I was like oh my God. There's who'll ruin the. Revolution revolution. So back in the restaurant. We see the governor son. And he's he's watched Moog in kill at least like four or five dudes. And he's just like you better not mess with me. I'm the governor son. And I was using. I am excuse feeling and kind of voices a lot on this.

"You go to an online savings account or something like that. Right. Like, so I read I read an article recently, and I might get some of these numbers wrong. But from what I recall, this is very similar what happened is currently happening in the print news business, which is that. A lot of hedge funds were looking at. Where to put their money in the seventies. And eighties media in prior to what's happening right now the marginal in print media where something like between twenty and forty percent on the market, whereas like a supermarket the margins are like two to four percent. And so a lot of these hedge funds would like buy up tons of small newspapers smash them together like centralize, certainly like the national news coverage. And then maybe have a few beat reporters and local news local news markets, which would allow them to basically create these major like the Tribune company gannet, not the Associated Press. But there are a couple other ones. Knight Ridder love that show. That show what obviously over time they deem vested in local news. They made a ton of money by cutting staff, and like their investments paid off in the sense that in the short term they made a ton of money. But now print media is dying. All these companies are having do further and further and further layoff. So basically, they just they were looking at the margins bought into this industry, gutted it. And now it's barely an industry anymore because anytime something big with a lot of money gives money to something small. It's because they want money out of it not because they believe in because they see the potential for investment. Now, when you're comparing that to just general investment that an individual would probably do you have to considerably beat those margins to make it worthwhile. And even if that's the big thing that the dead zone of if your company or whatever your department, or whatever it is is making five percent. In profit. It's not good enough. Now, we'll beat to beat the market to beat the Mario. So so I've been thinking about this a lot with some people like some friends of mine, and we have this discussion recently, which is what do you what do you think is the purpose of what is the purpose of the stock market? Why does it exist? Why does the stock market? I mean, why why did cut companies become public? It kinda give rich white people something to do. No. I mean, I read a whole book on a walk down Wall Street, and it's it is supposed to give people like you. And I and in all middle class and below an opportunity to invest in the basically growth of their nation diagnose. That's fifty percent of it the other half of it is if you have an idea, and you can't raise for a great company, and you can't raise money yourself. The idea is you go public with this idea. And you get people to invest in us you're able to make that thing you'll this company kids. These are the original ideas of this is like. Kind of stock marketing exists the stock market now exists to make people who own stock money that is going to start marketing there so companies have a much higher incentive to make money than to invest in their company and to like make a product and do something. That's why tech for example, tech companies blow up into these billion dollar unicorns. Get bought and sold and collapse now because it's all bubble. Anyway, everybody's writing it. Everybody knows. But you don't blow the whistle because you're profiting. So it's all about who's going to bail out. I I don't know. I don't know how to like circle that square. I don't know how to solve that problem of like the stock market is not doing what it's intended to do and. Yes, yes, communist, so. Let's yes. I mean, like not to get political. But like, and I'm not proposing a political solution to this right now on the on this podcast. Stay tuned. We go to you for Joey for that suit. Got my little ponies. I like is all gets back to digital media. Because the reason that these companies go into debt the reason that they are laying people off as to increase their margins to keep their stock prices high which like I would argue the purpose of a of a media company is not to keep your stock prices. Hi, it's to make fucking media. You know, and yes to make a profit, but you don't need. You don't need to make a twenty ten or fifteen or.

And and I know that this is the the so this story the big story that came out recently is by book by Jill Abramson who is the former executive editor of the of the New York Times. She wrote a book called merchants of truth. And it's sort of a re do of a book powers that be book by David Halberstam in the sixties at one what a Pulitzer, and it's essentially about the state of the median her point is to reflect on the recent layoffs is that it's in a it's in a downward trend. I don't know that one that's true. And actually have read some of this book, and I'm not certain that I agree with Oliver points. I do agree with the larger points that that the real issue in journalism right now, I would argue isn't the death of the larger publications in New York Times has more readers than it ever has an its history. Why post has more readers than it's ever had an its history. The USA today has more the Wall Street Journal, you can go on and on. And on the problem in the United States, actually is the mid is the mid size papers the. Papers that actually tell you what's going on in your town that the New York Times reporters fly over on their way to some other big them. That's been the problem in America. And that is not what she talks about in this book, and that's a shame. Because if you want to know where journalism isn't happening. It isn't happening in your town. Now, you're we're lucky in this area. And that we have an unusual number of people who are pretty engaged with media. The you know, the paper there's still a newspaper in Everett. Thank goodness. There's still a newspaper, you know, in in Bellingham. There's still a newspaper Tacoma and all of those have taken big hits. And all of those are smaller now. But at least they're still working because there are towns that size in other places the United States that have no newspaper or have. And that means they have very little news coverage happening at all. Because if you're small enough to lose your newspaper chances are you don't have a television station either. Yeah. And you also have those those big papers in in the town size are replaced with blogs and are replaced with next door. And so that's where people are getting their news for their neighborhood. But then it's never really getting out. Of their neighborhood unless somebody else picks it up. And and and but I would also argue as the on the upside is some of those blogs. I mean, we have in Seattle the west Seattle blog being one of the more famous ones. But in Capitol Hill in a lot of neighborhoods that actually allowed. I mean, the publishing platform is so inexpensive. The guys will require who we talked to all the time. Could they have done that in a traditional newspaper business model? Absolutely not one hundred percent. And so you have very good journalism happening now too because the price of entry Israeli relatively low. But here's the thing. Everyone always talked about cow. Craigslist helped kill newspapers fundamentally true newspaper sought coming and did nothing that's on them. That's not on Craigslist. But I would argue that the second part about this is. Public trading publicly traded newspaper companies if you looked at newspaper companies before the when they started really going to free fall, let's use Knight Ridder, maybe the greatest newspaper chain that has ever existed in the United States went from the best newspaper chain in the world to existent in an eight year period. He was mostly when they started embracing publicly traded in their pressure for profits rose through the roof and their ability turn those prophets diminished. So a number thoughts of this Jill Abramson had also said that she felt like the media in she called her. Former publication New York Times had gone so far. Into being activists against Trump. She worried about that I worry about that. And a worry about it's very very sincerely in that. I want a base of truth like a a lingua franca of truth. I want the society that's melded together that way or welded together that way that we can agree on some fundamentals. I think it's difficult to do in this era. We do need. I couldn't agree with you more local journalism, I know people who because they perceive the bias that I think exists to that. They they grow this hatred for local journalism. That's a mistake. I regarded as a deep mistake, the so many things we wouldn't know without the investigative power of some of the great writers. And there's some great writers at the times. But one piece that gets overlooked in this is there's an economic thing that I don't think people understand the vast ad networks. You.
