James Lawrence and Charlie Discuss the Case of Douglas Mackey
"Doing an event in Chicago and a young man came up and he buttered me up. He knew what radio station I was on, but he was a troll. And he said, quote, Charlie, that's why when the midterm elections came, I told all my Friends and family, there's only one way to stop the woke Democrat mafia, and that is to boycott these elections because they're never going to hear us if we don't really stop participating. It's a farce. It's a farce. Why should we participate? You said it yourself. Why should we participate? Now, I challenge him said, no, no, no, but he's a troll. He was a left wing activist, telling people not to vote, telling people he was trying to suppress the vote. I mean, the government is setting a precedent here that this young man should serve a decade in jail. And that's why we can't open this Pandora's box. That's why that's why it's so important that mister Mackey prevails in this case and that the door is slammed shut to this kind of prosecution because it will have a chilling effect on speech and it's just not where we should be going as a country. So again, I'd ask your audience to go on to meme defense fund dot com. So just spell it. Defense fund dot com. And I'd also like to encourage your audience at the same time. Romans 8 28 says all things work together for good for those who are called according to his purpose. And regardless of what the outcome is here in this case, ultimately we know who the author of history is and whatever the designs of the powers that be are, it's in God's hands, ultimately what happens in this case. And he will be glorified by the outcome of this. Regardless of which way it gets. Amen. But our prayer is that mister Mackie would be acquitted.

The Most Important Court Case of 2023 With James Lawrence
"Now is James Lawrence, who's an attorney for the Mackey legal defense fund. You may or may not remember, we talked about this a couple of weeks ago, and now it's going to trial. It's actually went through jury selection. I would go into trial. Of the case of Douglas Mackey. Where they're trying to put a young man in prison who made Internet memes and jokes about the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016, and they're trying to lock him up and throw the key away. James joins us now. James welcome back to the program. Charlie, thanks so much for having me again. Good to be with you. So James, give us the update. What is the status of the trial or the jury selection, fill us in? Yeah, so I believe we're in day three of jury selection and mister Mackey's case. But since we last talked, there are two developments that I would like to make your audience aware of with respect to the case. The first involved the government's plan to introduce evidence from a confidential witness and to just give your audience context around that request. The Sixth Amendment guarantees the rights of Americans to be able to confront their accusers and open the court. It's something that goes to the core of the constitution as a native of Raleigh, north Carolina. I can tell you this is something that sir Walter Raleigh was complaining about from his prison cell and the Tower of London in the 1600s. I mean, this is how bad rock this is to our country. And in this particular case, the government plans to introduce testimony from a confidential witness whose name will be withheld from the public and the court has not only granted the government's request to keep that person anonymous, but also to prevent mister Mackey's trial team from engaging in a fullsome cross examination of the witness with respect to that individual's connections with the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the briefing, mister Mackey's defense team has learned that the confidential witness has a relationship with the FBI and back has pled guilty to the very same offense that mister Mackey is accused of and is continuing to work with the government, but

The Appalling Story of Douglass Mackey With Darren Beattie
"I want to talk to you about the meme case. I want you to lay it out. You have a wonderful piece on revolver news, and then I want to make our announcement our modest contribution to the cause that hopefully will inspire our audience to do something. So state the case, Darren, and then we'll make our announcement. Well, I mean, it really is one of the most disturbing and certainly the most important first amendment case that unfortunately a lot of Americans haven't even heard of yet. And it involves the case of a young man called Douglas Mackey, who is allegedly behind a now kind of legendary Twitter account in the 2016 sort of Trump campaign era. And this humble young man just operating this pseudonymous account that trafficked in memes and a lot of the meals were really funny, some were controversial somewhere, both controversial and hilarious. MIT conducted a study of the most influential media accounts on the 2016 election and to their shock and consternation. This pseudonymous Twitter account operated by some young man in new York, allegedly, was more influential on the 2016 election than CBS and other I'll just multi multi-million dollar corporate media outlets. And I think that was kind of a thorn in the side of the regime. And so they decided to go after this guy. And what are they saying? Well, one of the memes in question is following a meme format that's designed to mock the intelligence of Hillary Clinton and her supporters. God forbid, right? And what it says is essentially Hillary supporters. If you want to vote for Hillary, don't even bother just text Hillary to this number. It's like with the suggestion that Hillary voters are so dumb that they would text Hillary to a number instead of go vote. It was clearly following a satirical format. But shortly after Biden took office, they arrested this guy. Now they're charging him and he faces up to ten years in prison for this satirical meme mocking Hillary supporters. How

DOJ Pursues 10-Year Incarceration of Douglass Mackey for a Tweet
"If I hadn't been watching Tucker Carlson Friday night, I would have never heard about this case of a guy who's being prosecuted for a tweet. And the feds are going after him. They want him to spend a decade of his life in prison. This story is so un believable. Andy McCarthy wrote about this case a while ago, have you heard about Douglas Mackey? If I told you that Merrick Garland's Justice Department wants to incarcerate a guy from Florida and put him in jail for up to ten years for the crime of something he posted in a meme on Twitter. Would that shock you? In fact, go ahead and Google his name. Good luck finding much about Douglas Mackey. This is an incredible story. And when I see our own country acting this way, it is beyond beyond frightening. You know it's one thing to be alarmed about what China is doing to us? How about what we're doing to ourselves?

"And if you're okay with that weirdness, then I think you can't let you can't not let normativity in the door with it because those phenomenal states have a value late in nature to them. The experience of suffering has to be avoided in this built into it. There's no other way to describe suffering, I think. So there's one last thing I'd like to ask. And it may be, they may not be easy to resolve. But having disagreements over this. What does that tell us about the nature of morality and how can it lead to resolution? Because if we're this the subjectivity of it, the experience of it, when we find that conflict between two different views that both posit objective morality. How do we, how do we see our way through it? Yeah, good. So this is the other, misses Mackey's other argument besides queerness, whether the argument from moral disagreement. And I think we can, so first thing I will say is some people will make the argument the stronger claim that because there's moral disagreement, we can know that there is not objective moral truth. And they do this in a kind of simplistic sense of if there are these objective truths we would have to converge on them. And if we're not converging on them, then they clearly don't exist or something like that, right? And there you can either push back by saying, well, we have converged on them in the ways that like we've talked about here. Or you could point out that people think that we're all fairly everyone in this room is fairly confident that the earth is a specific shape, right? But there is persistent disagreement between people about whether the earth is flat or not. But we don't think that that persistent disagreement proves that the earth is actually subjective in its shape or something like that, right? Like there's a fact of the matter and some people are wrong about it. So on that level, I don't think the argument does anything. But as a pluralist, I do believe because there are these competing moral foundations. There isn't always one right equation for how you balance them at the end of the day. So you and I might have a disagreement about how we want to balance respect for individual persons versus the greater good or something like that, right? And I want to introduce vaccine mandates and you don't. Or something like that, right? And you want to have strong encouragement, but you're afraid of going as far as mandates, right?.

"Place and that is just kicking the can down the road when there is so much life to be lived right this very second so Mackey was just passionate about the going to cosmetology school but she was afraid to take action on it. We're going to talk a lot about that today. And i want you to know. This is she she would. She's gonna talk openly about the fact that she knew that she had that support from her parents but even when we support them early and often that they can still do and think and feel whatever they're gonna do think and feel because we're all our own unique individual people so i can say all day long maxima therapist want do what you wanna do. Find your dream and passion. And i love what she goes into today where she talks a lot about saying i mean i heard you but i still felt like i might disappoint you. So we need to understand that Every one of our kids are spouse that we are all our own unique individuals going through this thing for the first time this thing meaning life and the moment that you come today. You've never experienced that before based on all the situations that you bring to the table right now so it becomes even more important that we are there for each other that we hear each that. We're not trying to control each other. We're not trying to tell each other what they should do. Because hundred you really know what another person should do when you have never been that person so we we talk about teenagers. And they truly don't feel like their dreams or their goals or their hopes of their passions are even an option can often feel hopeless or stuck or helpless so as parents it is so important to know how to encourage your kids to find their path but to know again that even when you do your best to be supportive that they all have their own views of who. They think they're supposed to be so..

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

It's fun anyway. It is pretty useful at taught me how bad i'm listening. Seems to be a thing. That's true for everybody that i didn't realize it. I can i ask you totally. Random question is are closed to me. What should the terms of the daily dot co series bb. Let me go see what they're right now and i have. I have no privileged information on the matter. I have no problems information. Daily is right. You know surgery streaming video. Api i it's during the api so like that's how you build you know telemedicine basically or or your own zoom or your him that is i would say whatever the terms of the plaid series b. Were that seems the most interesting company we basically like dailies built kind of the. I think it's really fascinating. Look at companies that build almost like a developer platform for existing successful companies daily cozy developer platform. Zoom is existing successful company. So i would. I would never want to build any application on top of zoom. I'm sorry i assume. Israeli successful as it application daily dot co daily is giving a orders. Alternate may completely agree. I completely agree. Plaid duke for series b. I wonder if plaid had moved beyond their robot loggins system by the time they were a series b. Probably not right. That was probably still what they were doing. Probably there are four million arteries be. So that's probably what three hundred fifty ish. Forty fifty million dollars detainees. I feel like daily is less obvious than plaid. Plaid was so obvious. This is a really powerful idea. Daily is less obvious. People don't seem to grasp it. They're like oh so. It's like mocks mike. No it's not like mocks. It's just different. Category phil by was not obvious to people. It is now. Yeah i feel time. Was there a lot of cynics. Okay so forty. Four million dollars series. B at once what valuation doesn't evaluation can't spend evaluation. I'm sure like fifty. Three hundred million. All right okay and then it looks like by the time they got to serious. It looks like the hockey stick from series a series see siri c. Two hundred fifty million at two point six six five billion so they went from forty four million dollar round to a two hundred fifty million dollar round so it looks like the hockey stick from from series series c. Which could happen daily but it seems unlikely. Daily doesn't even have that kind of well. Maybe who knows. I mean you can't companies use this. They won't trust you. And i guess the daily as the exact same probably correctly the time. Yeah well. I think we have this problem a little bit. You start to build something in outlasts that argument That's right sort of oversell. Bid by does not anomalous pattern. Stripe is done amazon stripe now really. Yeah amazon com stripe which is on amazon. It's thing the best thing about deaths for customers. Is you actually build a business and survive until bent switch flips in the big companies. Understand so because i feel like daily existence world were big companies now are going to have to figure out how to handle remote workforce. 'cause they gotta do it whether they want to at this point but it's bigger than that it's bigger than that because even like in the metaverse in the metaverse you want streaming video streaming three dimensional video systems dailies basically a web rtc api company. Everybody's been looking for the web. Rtc bet here it is here. It is it's daily. I think the biggest problem is that like a looks like toyota people sometimes it's not like twenty trillion streaming video system to people making a bad like it's really does that too which is not super nuanced is and crying products. It was usually pixellated. Yeah yeah it's hard for harvard problem. I don't like i think bailey's go for that. It's like it's hard in different ways than bad words but it's incredibly what zoom actually makes work is pretty incredible and if they can give the what we're doing right now to devs as thing that they could put in their own apps like this frigging amazing anyway interesting closing discussion enough to write that down for me daily as really cool company to me. I just feel like if you if you build a core competence in web. Rtc you're basically building a core competency in database. You're just building a courthouse in network data movement and pricing of that network data movement. And just saying sounds really hard and really interesting. Maga mocks is like batch data movement. Max's like we can build you kodak ladder in batch and let you serve your net flicks on a kodak ladder and had a really really good cd inexperience and give you really really good analytics around that and daily is something completely different daily is there. We're real time data streaming over web. Rtc web rtc is kind of like tcp level. Rotocol if you think about it write data movement mugs more interesting than i think you just said one of companies we ran into early in life as was nascar and they were trying to broadcast live events which is like forget the offer second. That's like a thing you'd go to monks for one of the problems. They were running into as they had to actually ensure like it's like they had a latency objective for all their clients and the reason was that they could they have this problem or gamblers if they had lower latency than other people watching actually front run the bedding which is a probably use web. Rtc to solve that a different problem than something like zip. It's actually a big area issue of how you provide like live broadcasts to the world. Now that even gets close to wills tv services used to do as a really fun probable in-incredibly because again anytime gambling comes up to prevent gamblers from having on advantage a lot of money there. Do you think gambling taboos will be will. Go away in our lifetime like. Do you think gambling taboos will track marijuana taboos. That's a good question..

It's just. it's not a thing that i'm going to do one hundred times the even yulia six chances we you're about what so like if you're building a successful start up like you might go through six rounds of funding and even like the after the first two or three allow.

I think that. I feel like there's a lot more traditional kinda half a billion dollars funds now that yeah get it. Yeah you're not you're having trouble. Are you like picking between different investor. We ended up. So we've already signed a term sheet but we had several to choose from Is what was your decision criteria. We had bought disregarding obvious of like. I mean and maybe it's not obvious but disregarding these partners at this place seem really easy to work with than helpful. That way we actually.

Other sounds amazing. Visit the cool thing about building. A cloud company is your customer base is so diverse and essentially have really good insight. You have really good insights into what they want and what they need. Because you can just go to each of your customers and say. Hey i'm current. I like basically run. The electricity at your company is there any other electricity running devices that you need and the yes. We need to need this. We're dying here. Do you know how bad your product is. We need new product. Linda how good your product is. Here's how it could be even better. It's actually one of the things that really low the developer model because if you can just survive long enough to get enough developers using it you can start building a relationship with other companies really going on the radar in places. You never would have guessed otherwise because it's almost like the company's md you you don't have a companies you want because this net and then you get people using it that you never would have identified otherwise and so you have accurate.

"Of. I think the word is product that grows like deb focused companies. They're so kind of caught up in. How enterprise sales her off or work. This is the business the major failing of of a lot of the major venture capitalists and conventional conventional builders to dumb. Is there like this. Is why bonetti cells to them. It's like cooper nettie. Smells like the empire like were they not a bet on it but i missed museau. So let's do kind of like that. So man i say all this. Because i'm just i'm sort of curious how you're pitching of infrastructure companies going because like when i'm pitching infrastructure to or building this extent tech company and pitching is just like kind of a bleak exercise because they just don't seem to really understand the economics of like infrastructure company. Yeah it's interesting because like it took me until this rounds or realize that. I'm never going to be good at catching to investors because like you maybe get like six chances in your life roy. It's just. it's not a thing that i'm going to do one hundred times the even yulia six chances we you're about what so like if you're building a successful start up like you might go through six rounds of funding and even like the after the first two or three allow. The work falls on other people at that point. And so like. Even i think the most experienced. Ceo's of companies don't really get that much experience agenda investors. It's not a thing they've done enough to be experts at it. It's a thing definitely like doing it three times better doing zero times but in general. I'm not gonna pitcher company to be seized enough to be really good at it ever. Because i just like i need the repetition. There's not going to happen which actually relax me. But this time. I realized that most of my job was i'm vc's that probably already agreed with our take less about the ones that so but but the problem with that is like a lot of those people who actually get it only have what like ten million under management or something right so they can't fire as big a bullet you have to put together a round of a bunch of five hundred million dollar checks right now. I think that. I feel like there's a lot more traditional kinda half a billion dollars funds now that yeah get it. Yeah you're not. are you having trouble. Are you like picking between different investor. We ended up. So we've already signed a term sheet but we had several to choose from Is what was your decision criteria. We had bought disregarding obvious of like. I mean and maybe it's not obvious but disregarding like these are at this place seem really easy to work with helpful. That way we actually.

Titans right like i. I think that my life will be better in the future. I have a lot of interesting places to ship my work. And so i'm actually really fond of render. I think like renders interesting lead sort of compete a little bit of the very beginning. Just people try out like are these people's like it's easy to avoid and out but like we diverged very quickly after that for what our actual values and so i actually think then when we pitched investors moseley pitching against cloudplayer. I think that most of my beliefs about the world is dead. Cobbler is not really the future of how we should've applications. It's a big sian business to last of the big. Cdn businesses and kind of future infrastructure. Won't really have a distinct cdn component exactly. So that's why that's the only company i would draw any shade at because i just didn't raising money was specifically cloudplayer's take on how computing close to people should have okay. Would you live in san francisco. I'm in chicago chicago ironically. We moved here after we solar company and like thousands are too expensive out there. I would rather we'll forget so. We need a lot of veterans. Got it chicago in the summer. Can't beat it. I moved out to chicago to work at a company called peak six eight or nine years ago. You probably have a lot of friends in in finance in chicago right. Weirdly insular of not having that many friends in chicago mostly spread out drug uso. I know others into.

I'm looking at your crunch base right now. What's the financing midnight. We basically raised a seed. Round muslim restrictive impose and then are in the process of closing. Our around turns out. I did some equity grants improperly. So we're having to go in slog of cleaning paperwork for advisors or something over trying to think what she'd all of the most. So what happened is we started this company in two thousand sixteen to seventeen. And what we're doing now is nothing like it started but we have four years of legacy a work through for like document trails and things and so it's been a chore to go back and dig stuff up mostly for mostly for ex employees so people who a week hired very early and then switched lawyer doing anyway closing in around right now specific like i said to get what doing in front of more people were in this fortunate physician when people's d. fly a sign up and try it and deploy their stuff and for some of networks and so all we actually have to do is get in front of more people than not exist right now when bedrock did the was it the series of adversarial series. Be maybe question. It's been just crv. That's done what he has done. A bigger limbaugh later rounds for them. But i don't sell. I don't think that's right. You mean g. g. Looks like dvd.

Oh bedrock. i think was involved with the series b. for self series b. I like yoursel a lot. I think for celtic will company of into. Yeah okay so bedrock was involved in this series b. and then they lead the series see. That's really cool. I like that. Actually when you start talking to the bedrock people around the time when they made their first investment pursell because i was kind of interested in working with them like adventure stuff with them and i remember talking to them about roussell and hearing their perspective was pretty interesting because they're not actually like inter guys they're infra people right. They don't know infrastructure. So they sort of like looking at guillermo and just betting on guillermo and i thought i feel like for cell company where you basically can bet at any stage on guillermo because he's you know what's interesting.

Like talk about tail risk right like i kind of like the idea that my back end system is going to have probably going to have some write ahead log thing. Where if anything happens my company. If i have some maximally evil participant that jumps into my company and just dumb shit for like a day or two. There's a complete rollback log. I like that idea. I don't know five actually allows that. But i feel like that's the kind of thing that google build could question. Actually can you or something. You probably can't do that right like you don't have a reversion system. No we have backups and snapshots like anyone else. But i think it's interesting is like like database. Backups are good Entire question mark and then it's like a whole like audit trail Offer something like that which is interesting problem. Yeah you know i. I've been sidetrack the whole conversation. We should talk a little bit more about fly. Oh like okay. Tell me how applications like what's your vision for application deployment like what's your current like good market house usage. Just tell me about your business like outlook today and how it's gonna look in a few years so our our special thing here and i think this is like opinions on w. x. which you probably have view W x ray back. Yeah i feel like w. is important for for kind of getting people access to something that could otherwise. Use that make sense so like back in the day. Geraldo erga made it so undeveloped could devote rails app and that's all eighty two it was there sea-lion just worked in iran. So our goal right now is basically make all back against run globally. Because it doesn't it doesn't actually make any sense to me that he would run an app in virginia for users. That aren't virginia and something like ninety. Two percent of is not with a hundred dollars seconds in virginia. And so we're sort of past for making your typical back under holes dug up from our world. that's kind of our entire purpose of life in the currently. The goal for that is get in front of as many devils audible unlike coming to compose. we actually have to work hard to get people's attention because there's a lot of a lot of stuff happening on the internet. These days used to be developers with trying new services again around now. Developers are like. I don't have time to try to things because there's the bows of them in. I already have my one. And i just wanna ship out. So we're working kind of working hard to kind of the idea in front of people and make it as easy to trout as possible. And that's going to be basically go for the next two years. I think until we get to hundreds of thousands of dollars on top of the platform. I think baltimore. I don't understand whether there's not like ultimate you look at like the scope of aws it makes sense to me that you should be authorised level of our without the user experience being trash like you should actually have a reasonable good self service developer facing user experience for like all of the things The offer and so. I think that if we if we want to get to that point where we're another sort of public cloud option but you don't necessarily have to hire people to do anything useful within. Here's.

You know you've talked about this a lot when you give speeches and you talk about how proud you are to be an american and one thing we share in common is that we both came from other countries to the united states. My situation was a little different My parents and i escaped. When i was an infant from iran and we came here with nothing and worked very hard to achieve The unachievable in most countries except america. That's what makes this country. So wonderful is that you're not limited by your last name. You're not limited by Who you know you only limited by your own drive to succeed and that is just something that i think. We're losing in america. Why because president biden. I was like to say. Joe biden's america. People are getting paid to sit at home and not work. They're actually competing with private enterprise restaurants bars. You name it. They're trying to hire people and they can't because joe biden saying there's fear fear of happening in the world and so we're gonna pay you to sit at home and that is very scary to me when i saw what happened. Last summer with the destruction of our city's monuments desecration of where we are and where we have been.

He has devoted his life to selling natural and organic foods and building a better business model. That doesn't even scratched the surface of his life super interesting definitely a self made person and a vegetarian even a vegan who also sells animal products in his stores. So we talk about The tension there between animal rights activists and business what it takes to stay in business and and that leads us into talking about economics. Capitalism crony capitalism versus what he calls conscious capitalism what it takes to build a company and What happens to all the failures and why they fail and the role of risk in building a business like this and then we branch out from there. We talk about universal basic income and income inequality and Many of the hot button a current cultural issues Like progressivism vs libertarianism. The promise of all these labels in general and And then we kind of branch off toward the end talking about some of the big issues of consciousness. He's a pan psychiatrist. And i'm a materialist. And but he makes a pretty good argument for his position on that in terms of what is free will and consciousness and god and love and all that stuff is which is where we end it.

Hey man invest like literally find a way youtube university. That's my favorite youtube university. I learned everything about cameras on youtube. some people say go to university.

I'm gonna do it that way and just the way it is well. You're doing an amazing job of that. Jimmy and smart right. Sometimes you make investments in and when you can learn what mistakes not to make it can save you. Tens of thousand dollars or more on that as well Real with diddy. Real quick. I and this is. This is another big tip person trying to inspire to be an dripping your open gym apparent or whatever just made the decision and take the big step and move the mistake. You figure out why you made a mistake and you do it all over again and repeat the process until you get it right. Yeah yeah. I love that. And i think what happens with most people as perfectionism often robs us of doing it. Because we're scared that if it's not perfect then we're gonna look funny. We're going to look foolish and it's not going to be good. What i say is actually you want to create imperfect material. You'd be perfect so get on and do some live. Once a week. Do instagram stories are tiktok our facebook or youtube or whatever your platform is and when starting out. Remember not to get so overwhelmed that i have to be on all the platforms one or two where your avatar hangs out. So if you're an athlete where people hanging out or if you're you know if you're an entrepreneur who starting retail shopper business. Where where's your avatar. Your your your core client hanging out with his hanging out and then appear on that beyond that. Maybe it's lincoln Right in one that works for you and be be the best that you can be. But you don't have to be perfect at it just keeps showing up consistent. Young over time is going to allow you to ultimately succeed so jimmy. You're doing an amazing job at not just showing up but doing it at a at a at a at a pace. That certainly is all inspiring. So thank you for getting that that lighter. Thank you man doing that.

Houston bar struggles with how to enforce mask wearing after state mandate was lifted
"Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus restrictions. He made the announcement in a restaurant. The governor is ending a mask mandate and encouraging businesses to return to 100% capacity. How does that plan look to the staff at a restaurant? The governor did not visit. That's where Houston public Media's Katie Watkins begins her report. They're going around at Neil's Bar in Houston's East downtown neighborhood. A sign on the door reads. No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service. But bartender Kristin Farmer worries the end of the statewide mask mandate may make that harder to enforce. Even prior to this, it was difficult sometimes to get customers to wear masks. So Going forward. I feel like it's gonna be More so under Governor Greg Abbott's new order businesses, Concil enact their own mask requirements and safety protocols, the bar farmer works that will still require masks and social distancing. But she fears the governor's message may further embolden anti masters and put people like herself who haven't been vaccinated at risk. We're obviously in a position where the vaccine isn't available Death but are trying to still work, so it would be cool if More people were vaccinated before we started opening up everything and Not taking just the basic steps. Currently, just 7% of people living in Texas are fully vaccinated. Still, some praise the governor's decision to allow businesses to operate at full capacity that is going to be tremendous and very, very necessary for our industry. That's Melissa Stewart with a Greater Houston restaurant association. She says. The statewide mask mandate was helpful when it was stay wide, and everybody had to do it. Was easier for staff members, frankly, to enforce it says it wasn't a question. That's why restaurant owner Alex Brennan Martin says he's making mass mandatory for employees but not for customers. Those strongly encouraged. It's become contentious and putting our employees are managers myself. In the position of enforcing those regulations, especially on an issue that seems to be just about 50 50 when you talk to folks and is highly emotionally charged It's a difficult thing to ask your employees and management to do. Houston has recorded all four Major Cove in 19 variants and medical professionals warn that loosening restrictions now will set back recovery efforts. Dr Joseph our own is the chief medical officer at United Memorial Medical Center. His main concern is another spike in hospitalizations. The moment I heard about these information of the governor was saying, I immediately called for a meeting here in the hospital on talking to the rest of the leaders of the hospital. We leave. From initial plans. So what we're going to do because we think we're going to have a large number of patients coming because of this, don't not wear a mask request by the governor, he says. These plans include stocking up on more PPE having more nursing personnel and even getting additional ventilators. Other frontline health care workers like ICU nurse Yvette Polo, Mackey share his concern. Colbert is nowhere near over. There's still people know ICUs like today that are dying that will die tomorrow that will die the next day. The next day, weeks and weeks to come still because of covert.

"O bucks. Packers is your second game on Sunday. Of course at Lambeau, The Chiefs and Bills are first. Casey is the second team ever to host three consecutive conference title games. They needed Shad Henny to make that happen after Patrick Mahomes third quarter concussion. I didn't Travis Kelsey never lost confidence. Nothing changed man. Nothing changed. Chad came in and uplifted us. We uplifted him and we just rally together, man, and that's what this team did offensively Defensively, special teams we just got we circled the wagon and got a little bit tighter as a group and then found a way to win against 20 to 17 after leading 19 3 focus. You have that flip by the way. The FC game is the late game next week. Do it really my fault. Okay, thanks And I don't know how they decide these things. My guess is because CBS has the Super Bowl that the late game knows who the Super Bowl matchups. Gonna it rotates every year. Fox and CBS rotate the late window every year and this TV contract. So last year, the NFC game with breaking right, the 40 Niners Packers last year was the late game. It just goes. It's a rotational basis for the network every year. Quick post Kelsey Soundbite mini pole. You think Travis Kelsey could end up is the greatest tight end ever. Mm. So on first blush, I would say no, I don't consider him like A Mike did Good. John Mackey. Rob Gronkowski as he knew some, you know, I just historically speaking, I don't ever think them in those terms. But there's a case to be made that Tony Gonzalez. That, statistically speaking He will end up destroying Gonzales and Antonio Gates his records and have multiple Super Bowl championships. But I guess the question becomes the old had you explain Erica ever because right now, you could make the case that the tight end has never been more of a bigger part of the passing offense in the NFL. No doubt no doubt. So it's It's the same thing with like Tony Gonzalez versus John Mack. You mean dollars, probably beat Mackey's records in the first five seasons. It's skewed if John Mackey played today, Would he have the same kind of numbers is Travis Kelsey? So some people consider Tony Gonzalez the greatest tight and he certainly the greatest pass catching tight and receiving tight end ever could. Travis Kelsey Be better than Tony Gonzalez. Yes, he could. Folks e, especially playing for how many more years of the homes and the continent with that system, and that's that's the That's the deal breaker there, Right and Gonzales never wins the Super Bowl. Gonzalez plays a lot of different chiefs quarterbacks, none of which are all that great. Besides Trent Green Goes to Atlanta for a couple of seasons, but he's not He doesn't have these big postseason numbers like Gronk rallies helped out because he had huge games in huge spots. If Kelsey plays in like 5 A.m. C championship games, wins two or three Super Bowls. And has the passing receiving records. The Tony Gonzalez does. He's probably in the conversation of greatest ever, which is kind of crazy, because I don't think many people would put him there right now. Quick difference in lifestyles between me and Travis Kelsey. The only time I met Travis Kelsey came to the studios in New York. I ask to get a picture with him. Turns out I was about to crush a big Mac and forgot to take the big Mac out of sitting in front of me. So the one picture I have a Travis Kelsey in my life. You just see me Travis Kelsey and a Big Mac and a box sitting right in front of us. And you realized then why he's a Super Bowl champion. And I'm a fat slob way had him on radio row as well, though, Okay, all right, either way, but, yes, me in a big Mac and Travis Kelsey, you are in one picture. S O. Kelsey and the Chiefs. They survive yesterday again 20 to 17 over the Browns. Both Mahomes any Andy Reid said postgame. The QB was doing well after one season as Rams defensive coordinator and just four total in the NFL.

Tracking the Trends: AI, WebRTC, Crypto, and Full Stack Startups
"Today's episode is a conversation about four big trends in the tech world. Any one of these trends would be notable on its own, but we cover all four in this hallway style chat as a sixteen z general partner Chris and talks with Sept. Campfire professor of media, arts, and sciences at MIT, and now co founder of cryptocurrency platforms, Selo and Eli Gill an investor in the CO founder of Health Technology, company color genomics, and formerly at twitter and Google. This is a wide ranging survey of some of the major shifts in technology right now but it's really a Meta story of how innovation happens, which is most definitely not in a straight line. So here, the translate cover Crypto, of course, a and machine learning including GP three. You can also listen to our explainer episode on what type and what's real there on our show sixteen minutes full stack startups, which Chris I wrote about in two thousand, Fourteen and collaborative web collaborative enterprise social including RTC or real time communication within the browser, which is where the conversation begins the first voice. You'll hear his Chris followed by talking about Web RTC and then set wants the conversation turns to Crypto. So it's a lot I. You and I have been talking about this in a negative excited about it. This kind of this feeling that there's a new stack of web infrastructure things like video audio. Collaborative Video Nadia rather who's having infrastructure now that it works in a way that it hadn't in the past and that's a mocking a whole new way of interesting applications people are always looking for the next platform and what the next big platform shift is and I think I kind of May have snuck up on all of us in the form of Web RTC Web Gio and then related. API. Companies providing sound or other things that have been built on top of by. Many other companies and I think the shifted substantiate itself in two different ways and almost call it the collaborative web and then separately the collaborative enterprise and if you look back ten years, people kept talking about during the first social way everybody talking about how there's going to be a social enterprise and how every SASS product was going to be more social and collaborative in that largely failed and it feels like that shift is finally happening in part due to things like what? You see fig for example, is the first really strong example of a Web jail enabled application along you to collaborate in real time with other people. In parallel with RTC is really allowing for really interesting concurrent sessions around video and tell you starting to see that in terms of a lot of products being built around virtual office rooms, virtual conference rooms, and I really do think this is the moment where collaboration is finally being built into the enterprise world and enterprise products, and then in parallel Web Jalen. Web RTC really seem to be enabling really interesting social experiments right now in terms of new social products, you have really amazing video and audio quality. So the time lag has gone who can do things that clubhouse. There's lots of interesting video experimentation. So you can see almost like degraded forms of your other things happening in browser or so I think now is a really exciting time of innovation around this new webstock. Point sneaking up on us, we've obviously had the ability to have conference calls group audio for decades. Right. But like a club house fact that there's so low latency and you've got like the visual representation of the room means that to me it's like if you remember the old days in the conference calls, Hey, always have people talking over each other partly because of whatever thrown is remarkable how the conversation switches from person to person. The latency I mean we both houses. This was zoom right like the fact that he doesn't stutter. The fact that very rarely does. It somehow Kinda Crossover. This point of good enough where finally hitting the point our in terms of video quality and the ability to stream concurrently across multiple users in terms of audio quality were hitting that point where the web infrastructure is really supporting the ability to have extra latency. A new platform excited at the examples. But when you say platform you that means you did they'll be thousands of examples. Are you think it's GonNa? Be a whole new wave that goes? By ten years. I think like any a quote unquote platform they're going to be a handful of things that really matter. That will really be the important things on it, and then a lot of things will be experiments that fail or don't work and I don't know ten years from now, what's going to be the main setup applications? I just think it is a shift that enables a bunch of applications to be built particularly the social or collaborative enterprise. One example that I think is worth noting in terms of what's coming due to see is it's quite possible that if you. Look at virtual reality or Vr the predominant use case in the near term mackey shift to the Rouser, and so I think right now in order to experience the are you need a headset you need some cases client software etcetera in. So there's more obstacles in hurdles to be able to participate and I think one of the things I found really interesting about where to seeing what jail is the ability to suddenly create like experiences where you just drop it. Can show up and so the big question in my mind is is oculus almost like the desktop computer versus mobile devices where the desktop really helps you do powerful tests, but you can do a lot on your phone and it's sort of the mainstream use case for most of the Internet today so I think that's another thing that we'll see if it happens or doesn't happen over the next decade, but that may be one interesting long-term trend to watch relative to web RTC. In. Jail. crypto rolling all involved in this allowed, you invest in Crypto Zapped new coupons company Selo in Crypto Abbasi's been my time besting. tells. A little about why you're excited about it in the second ring on. So I'll start off with general principle that I think is true for all of the technologies that we're talking about. There are certain class of technologies that increase the expressive range of a certain medium and when you increase the expressive range of a medium. Things pop up that were not possible before because you now are playing in the new design space. The historical example that I always love to point to is in the eighteen hundreds. The invention of the metal feral in painting is the little piece between the paintbrush and the paintbrush handle and collapsible easel. Those two things together allowed people to a brave paintings outside and be start to paint with a new breastroke that them too quickly DAB, paint onto the canvas in those two. Ended up, giving rise to form of painting that we now know as impressionism, and still it's interesting to think about impressionism was a result of technological advances painting and you see that same thing with the web and the Internet in general there were technological advances in the medium of text and so all of a sudden people could send texts more quickly anybody could be a broadcaster you start putting texts together with code to create different things in that vastly increased the expressive range of texts in a way that led to all of these things that you could not predict in advance. So for example, in ninety, four, ninety, five, when the web was starting to become popular, one could not imagine that. Will one day I'll be able to press the button and order my groceries on this and have my groceries come to me. You know and so I think those are really interesting from A. Technological point of view. Why I'm excited about Crypto is that Crypto does this for money? It increases the expressive range of the technology that we know is money, and that I think we'll follow very similar to the Internet you know at the beginning of the Internet. You saw allow people to pass messages. More quickly to one another across the distance in a way that was just qualitatively different than facts, and that is the first thing that you started seeing with Crypto it has direct implications to things like remittances or making the UNE banked. But then on top of that, the second implication of the web was that anybody could become a broadcaster with youtube anybody could have their own TV station and in the context of Crypto, you have the same democratization in financial services. So you see this kind of rise in decentralized finance open finance. And third is most exciting as it allows money to become programmable in the same way that the Internet allow text to become programmable and that I think, I mean we're seeing some early things today but that's I think the aspect that we're still the earliest and it has the most legs and is the most powerful and the most difficult to predict the stage. Since we're in such an early phase

Sharon suspected the cause was far more mundane cheap glass and poor construction Sharon unplug the jukebox took one last look around the place. It had never shined like the Chrysler building, but it looked clean again. She went through a small door in the back which barely clear head and up a small staircase to the tiny apartment above the bar she called home. Living and working in the same place took its toll. She had nights where she dreamt that she was trapped like puzzle winter. Tower. The whole world could change around her and she'd be none the wiser locked up above.
