DOJ Proposed Legislation Asking Congress to Weaken Section 230 Protections for Social Media Companies
"Now the DOJ, the DOJ has sent draft legislation to Congress on what's known as section two thirty so far guys seem that there are no Democrats who support this Melissa. All right. Thank you Illinois. So potentially this sector faces two separate issues, antitrust concerns, but also efforts to curb the protections afforded to them by section two, thirty of the FCC. Karen, are these I feel like they've been these these threats have been around forever and nothing's really hit the stocks. Right we saw GDP are and. A couple of years ago, and the resolution always ends up being a positive and the announced of the action itself or the threat of it is what ways on the style I feel like they've they've been under this cloud for a long time and I think that you know. If we see a Biden victory then I think the boiling of this. This is like front and center right now I think that will recede and I think not I know it somewhat bipartisan but it's not a burning issue for the Democrats like it is for the trump administration so that could happen. and. I. Think you know bad news is already priced in Yeah Steve You agree with that the take on on biting Biden being friendlier a friendlier administration. attack. No because if you go back and replay the debates, we had Elizabeth Warren we had Kamala Harris. Joe Biden but but I don't think he was asked to weigh in, they would like to break up the large large cap tech companies. So there's GonNa be a real push at you believe it is bipartisan and I don't think the foot is going to be pulled off the gas the more the Democrats get pulled left and start listening to Elizabeth Warren. Harris as the VP so I don't think there is an easier path for tech. going. Forward.

Roku and Peacock made nice. Will HBO Max and Fire TV follow suit?
"So going into last week, what was the status quo of the standoff between Hbo Max Peacock on the Streamer side and then Roku and fire TV on the devices I'd. So it was a rollback to May, which was when if you're Max launched was surprise honestly all of us that HP the Roku Fire TV, we're not going to have the HBO AD and. That's still the case today You know it's been said launch. Max's not been on either of those two devices against super popular like you said, Roku TV, they're really the least expensive streamers out there and you could you know so many people have them on TV's on on the street devices themselves. So and then peacock which debuted nationwide in July also didn't have HBO Max and didn't have. Sorry. Didn't have a Roku or fire TV. So again both those major services both you know had a lot of hype leading up to them in both kind of like. You know they're not on these super popular devices. So last Friday that changed and Roku peacocks deal. So finally, Roku owners can watch peacock just like everybody else right. So what are the I'm sure that you it's been similar for you like me I've even people that work at c net with us have message to me occasionally and been like w why can't I watch the streaming service? On my Roku or on fire, you have you been getting a lot of reader reaction to the fact that. We had readers were really like I think a lot of years that are in the know are Kinda like at this point like they're they're they're they. They know that it's an issue in the they do complain about especially when they hear about new stuff on on either service potentially but we had a discussion internally about the editor's choice award, which is something that we give to products. We really like currently our editor's choice product is a roku streaming stare. and. We're like is worth polling this this this award, you know give them a little bit of time still especially going into the fall season, but you know it's a big issue offer us evaluating these products so yet again it was it was a surprise. People are still kind of mystify that these massive services from the media companies they can't agree to deal to just get the basic APP on their devices. So also, can you talk a little bit about? What are people missing out on Hbo Max Peacock in addition to being new services especially with Max been a little confusing for people to understand any way. It doesn't help if you can't watch these services on like the most popular things that people watch the but give people sense. You know what are they missing out on if they are Roku or fire TV users, what are they missing by not having a up until last week not having access to both HBO Maxine PGA While I. Think Big Picture. You're missing more on peacock the Max at least in the beginning because. If. You're a Roku or a fire TV user. You can get the regular HBO APP still. So you can watch you know all the shows that are on HBO succession, which just one. In the EMMYS did really well, all those hbo things there on both Max and regular HBO. The things that you're missing on MACs are primarily friends which obviously is is the big marquee feature there and those Hbo, Max. Originals. So that's on there. If you're if you're Roku or five TV subscriber, you can't watch those my kids really like the elmo show on for example. Like he gets up at elmo goes and does a late night show. It's called the not. So late show with ELMO and You know we watch that on our apple TV you know the one time we don't use Roku our house right off because you can't you can't watch it on the Roku. With peacock I think their catalog is a is a little bit less compelling overall You know it's a less expensive service. It's free. But. Again, you're missing a lot of their back catalogue ABC has or NBC. Sorry NBC shows. law and order Svu as well as a parks and recreation thirty rock big names like that. You can stream on peacock and you can't get those on other services however for example, those are both of those comedies thirty rock in. Parts of the wreck are on Hulu. Hulu Subscriber, obviously, you got Hulu APP on your fire TV or Roku. So you're not missing quite as much I think if you're a again a Roku Amazon Rtd user with peacock. So you know it's it's it's it's very complicated, and then these services have different tiers right so at the end of the day, it's it's hard to Parse it all and you can get a Lotta these shows on different services. If you look around
Amid protests, media companies face reckoning with racism
"Every one of our daily Bloomberg BusinessWeek shows, Understandably, They're about thes dual pandemics, the virus and the quest for racial justice. And on this, Jason, we caught up with Lisa Ross at the public relations giant Edelman, where she is US chief operating officer. She also leads Adelman's Washington D. C office. She's president there. She also held several roles in the Clinton administration, the Labor Department and she was a member of the inaugural team of the White House office of Women's initiatives and outrage so great voice to check in with media fuels racism. 62% of all of those poll says that in covering the demonstrations against racial injustice, the news media has focused on rioting at the expense of peaceful protest. So I think that's something that people have felt. Something has been alluded to, But thiss research indicates is that actually true, the second one that there was. There's a little bit of a stench, which is Problematic that some people have to see it to believe it. So we did this research the first time in June and overwhelming numbers said that that Americans believe that systemic racism exists and overwhelming numbers says that business and brands have a responsibility to take a stand and to do something. Now when he went back into the field, So that was June, went back into the field in early August. Did it found a little bit of a dip, quite frankly, between the murder of George Ploy and early August And then when Jacob Blake was shot We went back into the field, and it went up. And so interesting that and particularly it went up in two categories. Republicans and people 55 older and so after the shooting of Jacob Blake, there was definitely an increase in the number of people who support protests. Ah, and the people who definitely thing to believe. Yes, Systemic Racism does exist, but interesting that we saw when we didn't see some of the incidences. Third ominous insists this is a space where I live. Super high expectation for business but low marks on business response today. So you know, when this first happened, everyone was making a statement. Everybody was releasing their data. Black lives matter. I stand against racism so forth and so on, and it was all attributed to the CEO. So definitely a sense all summer long appreciate the conversation. But what have you actually done that Its like, had actually done least I want to jump in. And we've we've been looking after. Have Richard to Richard. Gentlemen, join us several times to talk about this barometer on as it's you know how it has been. Certainly through the pandemic. Talk to me. You guys were at the nexus of talking to so many different CEOs. You have this high level. No conversations. I do wonder. You know, everyone's saying it's going to be different this time around, but I you know, I'd be really wealthy lady if I got a nickel for every time I heard that, you know, there are high expectations right of business to do the right thing and not just talk about okay, we're gonna do No, a focus group and we're going to do this. We're going to do that, but rather really make some change to make sure that they have a diverse workforce that they have diverse suppliers in their supply change. I mean, the's air, the things that move the needle so Are you having this high level conversations? And do you have those high hopes that things actually do change? Carol, you're spot on and everything that you've noted that saying something is one thing doing something is dramatically different and the respondent Overwhelmingly agree. So yeah. Um, I I believe that things will change because the CEO is that we're talking to are intimately concerned and involved about these issues, but to be afraid for many of them, this is uncharted territory. You know, when we first started advising many CEOs were like I want to say something. But health isn't in order, and I'm like, yes what No one's houses in order. That's why we're having the problems that we're having. But you still have to speak out. You know a lot of for CEOs. A lot of this for us is these air lived experiences for many people, and for many CEOs who are overwhelmingly white, male, mainstream Christian Straight I the list experiences. Other people seem to have does not affect them. And so in many ways they're trying to catch up culturally with what's happening in the rest of the world. Now is the intense there absolutely is their heart in the right place. Absolutely. But many of them are catching up in their learning about things, which I think is impeding some of the progress that we're making. What they're learning. I mean, where
The U.S. To Limit Access To TikTok And WeChat On Sunday
"The federal government said today it will ban we chat from US APP stores starting Sunday night. Also, we chat users in the US will be banned from using the APP to process payments or transfer money us. Companies will be prohibited from providing. Internet hosting four, we chat starting Sunday and for Tiktok the social media company beginning November. The twelfth an alliance with Oracle of California and Tiktok is being reviewed by the trump administration in a bid to resolve national security concerns about tiktok access to US user data.
TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations
"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead.

Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S

To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target.
As U.S. TikTok Ban Nears, Here's What We Know About a Deal
"TIKTOK could soon have a US media partner Bite dance the Chinese company that owns tick. Tock has chosen the American Tech Company. Oracle for the role. The move comes after the trump administration signed two executive orders aimed at forcing bite dance to sell Celtic tops US business over what the President says our national security concerns but the deal isn't done yet. It's still needs to be reviewed by the US government. Here's a president trump had to say yesterday no, I'm not prepared to sign off on anything I have to see the deal we need security especially after what we've seen with respect to China and what's going on we want security so I'll let you know. Cristiano Lima is the technology reporter at Politico and he talked to me earlier this week about what we need to know about the deal and its implications for user privacy. But I, I asked him to explain exactly what Oracle does their a one of the biggest tech companies out there. But certainly under the radar particularly in Washington. So they do a lot of cloud computing services they provide supply chain tools, data management certainly. Not, the things that most people associate with tact when they think of facebook social media companies, but definitely a major power player in the industry that provides a lot of indispensable services for lots of businesses. So they're not really a front facing technology company that we think about when we think about like what tech companies we know off the top of our heads, why would oracle be interested in buying or partnering Tiktok? That's what makes this such an interesting move for them. of tech companies that we've seen come under intense scrutiny in Washington has been the public facing ones that the facebooks the Google's the twitter's of the world, and this would be oracle really stepping into a potentially a lot of that scrutiny by taking a potential stake, a partnership bowl in Tiktok, which has faced its own political headwinds in Washington, not only on these national security issues that are getting so much attention now, but also along the lines of. Privacy and content moderation issues but it is a company that has seen its user base really expand this urine twenty twenty with a lot of people staying at home on their APPs rolling through the popular videos, and so it's certainly was a very appetizing company for a lot of its suitors were pursuing the company and it's a chance for Oracle to release order to step up its its profile.
Former IBM CEO weighs in on TikTok deal
"Dance to find a way to restructure Tic Tacs. U. S operations or face US shutdown is looming with Secretary Venusian, saying it has to be resolved by this weekend, and reports are that Oracle is the partner trying to get that deal done. Welcome. Now, someone who is no stranger to doing big tech deals with Chinese Sam Palmisano was for many years. IBM is President Seo, including when the company's sold. It's PC business. So long go back in 2005. We welcome now back to Bloomberg. Great to have you here, Sam. So I say you've actually been through this process. Give us what you learned from that process that Oracle maybe facing right now. Well, thank you, Devon. Thank you for having me. I mean the process itself. Let me just frame it on the sense that we had a period time What they were better relations relations between the two countries. I mean, China, the United States and China was also in a different phase of their growth strategy, and they were still inclined to create global businesses that could be held in China that could expand Beyond their domestic market, so the circumstances were quite different than they are today. Having said that it's an extremely complicated process is run by Treasury. That's a fair process. They make a recommendation to the president states for approval. But normally at least in our case in the process, it becomes political. In that case, then, basically because we were signed an asset that we believe was just going to be commoditized. It was not a lot of technical differentiation and a PC as you see today, but fundamentally of the various parties on the hill got engaged, and it made it complicated, which meant we had to go through a second review, which prolonged everything, which puts the deal in jeopardy issue. They say time kills deals, but fundamentally, we hung in there and we got approval from both governments would perceive it. It's clear and nothing else is clear. It's clear that whatever Tic Tac has is not commoditized, use your word. Whether it's the algorithms being used, or the date of the personal data, which seemed to be the real center piece of the concern of national security, and therefore this deal is more complicated. How you really protect those data. Is that the big sticking point as far as you can tell I think it isyou know, I really do think it's It's a combination of the algorithms and the personal data on the the amount of the personal data and that's called the uses of the personal data now, their solutions that could be having been shutting people down those sorts of things, and I really do think that There's a pragmatic solution on the table that perhaps both governments could approve. That would at least take one issue off the temple in the U. S China relations and Let me explain what I mean by that, the current what I read anyway. Like you. We only know it's been reported, is that bike dance would maintain majority share of Tic Tac, but they would create a global entity that would be held the United States. Mark will be a technology partner and provide that infrastructure e clown except which makes sense for article on maybe by doing this sort of thing. If you can solve the issues around personal data and the uses of personal data, protect people's privacy that could be resolved. But you still the government approval on both sides and the Chinese also have the equivalent of devious In their in their processes. Well, yeah, it's clear that the Chinese have really a dog in this fight without a doubt. But is it possible from your experience to really for the US government to really be assured that those personal data cannot go back to the Chinese government is I think that was the thing that we're concerned about, right? Well, absolutely, And basically, you know the complicated thing here. We don't have any details. Let's start with the structure itself. The majority owner being bike dances. It's obviously a Chinese company. What's the government's model? Who's on the board of that house? Did any operate? They have passive investor, right you on and on and on, is in a financial deal. There's an operation if it's an operational deal, because we're complicated now as faras protecting the day that exists if it's all housed in the United States. It's somewhat easier, but nonetheless, I mean information's gonna be flying across the world, So you're always gonna run the risk of any us any nation or really any happier being able to get into that kind of an infrastructure. Now, having said that? I mean, I think a partner like Arco or an IBM enterprise tech companies have a lot of experience of protecting data. They do this for themselves and for large enterprises. Probably a better partner than let's say, your traditional consumer tech company might be able to provide. Well, that's exactly my question, because I don't think of oracles being a consumer facing tech business. Unlike a Microsoft or unlike a Google or a Facebook, why does this make sense strategically for Oracle? Oh, I think it actually thie take about clouds in the emerging architecture for computing in the future are co is way behind as it is, I'd be having made the other traditional enterprise players and leaders as we all know where Amazon and catching up his Microsoft, so to them. It gives them I think an entry point with a very large social media company into the infrastructure. I think we'll give them credibility and cloud and a moving into the future. So from that perspective to teach me that makes a heck of a lot of sense. They're going to be a minority investor. It's almost like an outsourcing deal and in the sense that you operate people's assets for them. But you acquired his assets and the acquisition is access will be equity get only is buy bread, so I don't have any insight to that. So you know they'll make an investment. They'll get the outsourcing of the infrastructure that would be House United States. And that will create jobs. I don't know if it's 25,000 or not. I mean, you're the reason why 25,000 to me. Sounds like a large numbers. Because Facebook is bigas. They are only has 75,000 employees. And finally, Sam. What if, In fact, it does not get approved if in the end President Trump says, I don't like this. What does that mean? Maybe for Oracle, but more importantly, for bike dance. Well, I think at the end of the day, I mean, well, they shut them down. I don't know, You know, I mean, I think quite honestly there ways to solve these problems are national security concerns concerns. I can understand that it's really the bigger issue is protecting protecting people's personal information. In fact, the matter is that David that you go all that information's already been hacked. I mean, I know everybody forgets about the OPM Hack and the IRS hack well that there's a ton of personal information's already been hacked his eyes over the world. I assume in China's well there's tons of personal information are ready on the Internet everyday based upon people's user. Behavior and what they do on the Internet. So I mean, I do think it's necessary and it companies need to protect people's privacy in the data, But I'm not sure that this deal represents what's necessary to solve that problem. Fascinating. Thank you so much salmon. Nobody. I'd rather talk to about this than you. That's former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano. More
ByteDance Rejects Offers For TikTok's U.S. Operations
"There are just days left for Tiktok if it's not sold to an American company, the video sharing APP will be banned in the US. Microsoft was seen as the most likely buyer but TIKTOK Cheney's parent company has now rejected Microsoft's offer. NPR's Bobby Ellen joins us with the latest Bobby Good Morning. Hey, good morning. There was all kinds of talk about this big deal with Microsoft. What happened to it? Yes. So in short, it was turned down by bite dance. If you remember that's tiktok based parent company and you know this really hurt Microsoft Microsoft was really gunning to choir tiktok and it's because it would have been a gold mine of data on young people on one of the world's fastest growing APPS. Microsoft has the money and the technical know how to operate it. But yeah, in a statement Sunday Microsoft says it's offer was And they didn't explain why but they did say their proposal would have protected national security interests, which is how we ended up here in the first place. So. Let's talk about this deadline I mean president trump has said that tiktok poses a national security threat because it's operated out of China. The president is saying that he's GonNa Force Tiktok to to to shut down if they can't sell it to an American operation. So I, mean now that this Microsoft deal has fallen through what happens. Right, so trump says tiktok has no choice but to find a buyer by Tuesday. So tomorrow but an executive order, the president signed talk actually has another five days after that but that's not really much time in the dealmaking world to try to figure this out. Right. So I mean Microsoft having its offer rejected definitely makes it more likely that tick tock. Forever in the US, but it's still could be saved. Right. Rachel is not lost. Others are still in talks with Tiktok do we know who the others are? Yes. So The Wall Street Journal reports that talk is expected to name a software company Oracle as its quote trusted tech partner. Now, what does that mean I have no idea and most people don't know either. Now Chinese State TV has another take out today they're saying that neither Microsoft Oracle will be buying tick tock. It's unclear how definitive that report is but in any case, oracle would a really odd partner here I, mean it sells database products to mostly businesses that has no experience operating social media company. It doesn't even sell any major consumer products analysts. Dan is was among the technology watchers I talked to who is equally as confused the Oracle Technology Partnership, which I think too many. Still a head scratcher is that enough to keep this apple lives. Right. So that's the key question is whatever oracle and Tiktok hammered out enough to satisfy the trump administration so that they will cool their pressure on the APP and let it survive. We just don't know yet. In, China itself has has sort of thrown a wrench into this rate doing some things that are delaying talks. That's right. Yeah. So in the middle of these talks, China passed a new rule restricting how a foreign buyer say an American company like Microsoft would. Could could take on a Chinese algorithm and Tiktok is popular because it has this amazing algorithm right I mean it's really seen as kind of the secret sauce of TIKTOK. It's what makes it very personalized. It's what makes you know videos just go viral really really fast. So can talk be sold without its treasured algorithm would tick dog even be Tiktok without i. mean these are really big questions right now and just to end just to step back how exceptional is the situation now with president trump putting this kind of pressure on a private company. Yeah I mean unprecedented as you know, Rachel's term, we hear thrown around a lot in the trump era and I don't think it would be a stretch to use it here I mean the president using the power of his office to force in overseas company to sell its business in the US, is very, very unusual but still that's the situation Tiktok is now facing. NPR's Bobby Allen. Thank you. Thank you Rachel.
The Value Of Understanding Your Cultural Enemy
"Now, amongst other things, Steve's is the former chief creative officer overt vein media and he was talking about brandon programming. This idea that branch should think of themselves as media companies and then create content or branded programming that is consistent with the brand message but is also in a format that people want to consume and one of the ideas that he touched upon this idea of identifying your cultural enemy which I thought was pretty clever because a lot of people have trouble describing what it is they want their brand to be be the what it is or what they aspire for to be but. Most people do know what they don't like. So if you can identify what type of culture, what type of organization, what type of brand is not what you want to be then it's much easier for you to stop getting clarity on what it is. You do want to be at the very least you can identify the actions you don't want to take the actions you want to avoid so that you don't become like your cultural enemy even if you don't end up with total clarity on water these your culture is at least you'll understand what it's not gonNa be, and you'll avoid it becoming your cultural enemy. So question for you, who is your cultural enemy? Already. That is for today I do thank you for your
TikTok Scrambles to Remove Suicide Video Clips, Ban Users
"Australian regulators have ruled out prosecuting TIC tac over an apparent suicide video under tough new laws prohibiting some forms of violent online images. The prime minister in Australia, urging social media companies to take more responsibility for Offensive content. The Chinese own Social media platform says it's working to remove videos of a man apparently taking his own life by a gun banning users who keep trying to spread the clips online.
TikTok scrambles to remove suicide video clips, ban users
"Ah Facebook user from Mississippi live stream to suicide on the social media site last week. The video is now being spread on another platform tick tack, with the company warning its users not to share that video. See nets in share tells us even though social media companies do have some responsibility, their users who try to outsmart the system and so I think this is going to be a larger issue. As time goes on, the social networks clearly are incapable of policing their content, too. Is degree and people have learned ways to get around the system so that if they want to shock people they're able to
A platform-by-platform prescription for treating the disinformation disease
"From Cunanan to Russian propaganda campaigns to Kobe nineteen myths. Social media is unquestionably the vector for increasingly dangerous misinformation. But the big platforms are still trying to have things both ways they take credit for pro democracy movements and black lives matter. But maintained that groups devoted to armed militia groups didn't influence the shooting of protesters in Kenosha Wisconsin they pitched services to politicians that they claim can win elections, but then say they're not responsible for political speech. So with just weeks left until the US election, we wondered if the platforms all agreed overnight that disinformation is a threat to society and democracy what would change. Joan Donovan is the Research Director of the Shorenstein Center on media politics and public policy at Harvard I up she says gaming twitter should be a little harder a place like twitter needs to get a little bit more honest about how they're broadcast system plays into the disinformation incentive structure. So if you're just a small website by and large is very difficult for people to stumble across that however, if you're employing a little bit of automation, maybe some advertising. And you have potentially even paid off some influencers. You can make that disinformation scale and look organic, and then there's too. But which is way more aggressive about suggesting things for us to consume it systems like youtube that depend on recommendations need to take a serious look at that in need to understand that if I hate watch a and on video because someone sends it to me, the Algorithm remembers that. So even if I didn't like it, I can't get. Out of that Vortex so I think recommend needs an overhaul because it does tend to work in the favour of manipulators. Donovan says recommendations for facebook events, pages, and groups also need an overhaul facebook left up with a call to arms event in Kenosha even after it was flagged at least four hundred and fifty five times according to buzzfeed and only took it down after an armed teenager killed two protesters so we have to be attuned to the fact. That groups like that don't grow fast and become agile without technology and that facebook event page for that night bears a lot of responsibility for people knowing where to show up what to bring and and how to interact with each other. This is a feature of the design John Donovan of Harvard. She also said don't ignore Instagram influencers are driving a lot of this info and no, we don't think any of this will happen absent a lot of regulation. And now for some related actually today, it's related audio. I talked with John Donovan for nearly half an hour and wanted to share just a little more of the conversation with you mainly because researchers believe this is a real threat to the integrity of the election and like I said before ballots are going to start going out in just a few weeks. So I asked her about the sense. Of urgency around solving this problem, you know there is a lot of scenario planning in two thousand, nineteen absent the pandemic of how people were going to be able to vote and how people were going to engage with the election process with the pandemic. There's added emphasis on social media companies to really get this right because most of everyone's information is being filtered through these platforms so even People that would have been going door to door organizing ride shares for the elderly are unable to do that, and so tech companies now are not only at the center of the targets of groups that want to perpetrate information warfare and carry out influence operations but they're also the most important information conduit for groups that just want to have a fair election right. So you're saying that this scenario never accounted for the fact that social media which was already vector for disinformation or for good information. Would become even more central. Exactly and it, and the thing that we know is researchers about disinformation and media manipulation is that it works because it plays on people's outrage and it plays on novelty. So some of the features of social media itself which is journalists really strived to be first out the gate with new information and so that they can be You know at the head of the the pack in the top of the search results are now being turned against them, and so the notion of what it means to wait in journalism to confirm something is up against viral misinformation that is really playing on that information void and the time that it takes for journalists to really know. What it is that they're they're writing about and be able to share that information with their audiences. Right, you know we also talked to a researcher who said that we talked about Qa nine as really kind of an emerging cult and one of the things that she said was that movements like that really thrive in this kind of perfect storm scenario where not only do you have an active and thriving ability to push out disinformation but you have a lot of people stuck at home with a lot of time and a lot of loneliness and desperation I would assume that was also not in this scenario planning. No there was to be honest with you as people were thinking about researchers were thinking about this moment there was a conspiracy wildcard and you know that that was an easy. No. In the end, the threat models in the matrix of our thinking, we did know that something would happen pizza gate, of course, in two, thousand sixteen. Is something that has become instructive and informative for researchers to understand how. This attention to conspiracies within certain communities can strengthen the trust between knees, these groups and also can help them to recruit and I use recruit really loosely nobody's like I'm a member of the pizza gay conspiracy community but with something like Hugh and on you do have folks that are outwardly saying you know where we go one, we go all using these hashtags trying to signal to others that. They believe this to and because the infrastructure of went and the networks were already in place during the pandemic. When the pandemic hit, it became a an opportunity to tell us another story about the deep state and another story about the collusion between what are very coded Antisemitic tropes about a global co ball and that feature. Of Social Media that brings these groups together through the use of Hashtags, is something that is accelerated medical misinformation and really grown the ranks of people who were familiar with John. Do you think that we're headed toward a flash point where people will re recognize the value of information or do you think it's sort of going to be like a long slow decline into little islands of personal truth? It's a really good question. You know if you asked me this ten years ago, I'd say the capacity for the Internet to ensure that we have hyper local information networks is at an all time high. If you think back to the days of indymedia and how great some of the local citizen journalism was in those moments however because we've reached this. Obligatory passage point where information networks have become consolidated within these. You know super large. Companies. have to rethink data as currency and we have to rethink data infrastructures If we're going to. Build the web that we want, and we do have to figure out a public component to this infrastructure that doesn't leave leader leave us at the mercy of social media companies to do. All of this information wrangling I've been a big proponent of trying to get platform companies to see the capacity to do content curation using librarians. You know they keep talking about content moderators. I'm like what about your curation process so that when you do look for information on a Google or on facebook that you're getting things that have been vetted not just things that are popular new Joan Donovan from Harvard, there is of. Course more reading on this topic kind of all over the Internet lately, which is a good thing I guess,
Why You Should Capitalize On Marketplace Opportunities
"Nice Guy Community check this out today a hunter. He is known for his success as an architect of change and a leader of business transformation. His belief is the importance of talent culture and it's exemplified by the strong executives he has developed. He now works closely with executives, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and organizations to help them capitalize on marketplace opportunities and proactively address digital disruption. So what does all that stuff mean? So it means that our guest today he knows what he's talking about. He's not just a guy that talks the talk. He walks the walk as well. Welcome Tony to the Nice guys on business podcast pleasure to be hurt Doug. Thanks. For having me at love having you here man and and you know we talked a little bit in our pre interview just about some of this stuff and some of your your experience that you've been through and I love it because you've gone from publishing to pot from media to marijuana and conservative to cannabis. So can we start just a little bit with your back backstory 'cause I think it's so fascinating how you've gone from a really ultra conservative environment and publishing, and you're now into an entirely disruptive in a brand new world. So maybe share a little bit of your background and then we can take it from there. Tony. All thanks Doug I usually get asked that question that's not a straight line of course for most to think about a after a long career at Tribune company one of the greatest media companies in the world. After I left the company. There were three things I was looking for one in publishing mission. Our mission was always sold for and I wanted to have that I also love being an disruptive environment and the challenge and then third I enjoy. Building something and building a team and setting visions what I look at opportunities. On the mission side, you know cannabis a started out. In every state and I've had experience with friends and relatives that have seen the relief and benefits but disloyal cannabis and I really been attracted to that and natural medicine in general for about fifteen years now. So I started learning more about that and saw the impact it was having and I really believe that as regulations are relaxed, we're gonNA find more benefits of medicinal cannabis and so that intrigued me second clearly this is a disruptive You, know as this gains more traction more clinical trials, this will be disruptive form of treatment and medicine, and then last I believed that my experience as a an operator at Tribune and complexity was really perfectly aligned for rapidly growing company like Revolution Global, which is the Illinois based Cannabis Company that I am chairman of the board and I thought bringing those operating skills could help manage gross and really have the. Organization have the Rigor and discipline to succeed. So it wasn't that far of a stretch given my personal and belief in natural medicine but also experiences of friends and relatives that have found release is so that's how I that had brought me here and brought me to participate in this site. So you recently wrote a blog post I guess within the last couple of months and you mentioned in your blog post. Farmer versus hunter companies, and you know we're dealing in the day of this recording. Hopefully, people are listening to this five years from now what was that time in life? That was really? Challenging that that Cova dive but we're dealing right now in an environment that that you need to evolve and change rapidly or and pivot rapidly, or you're gonNA find yourself on the firing line of of extinction. So can you maybe explain this farmer and hunter mentality within organizations and see you know maybe we can create some connection between farmers and hunters and those that are in our community right now? Yes. Well, you know it's an. Older, way to look at businesses but farmers, you could just think of those as big established legacy companies. And Hunters as these emerging startups and high growth companies that are disrupting many of those legacy companies and. I really believe greatness occurs len you do and also things you know it's it's not big companies do a lot of things well, but they normally are very agile. They normally don't have this passion behind the mission and vision of the company and also their their ability to pivot to your point and drive new ideas because they're so successful in large in many times, they lose that edge and I think they could learn a lot from the hunters and maintain those real good benefits being large in scale and discipline, but add those components of. Being Agile and also creating a organizations that pivot frequently, and conversely I think a lot of times the hunter organizations. Lol. Organizations they're growing at all costs, and at some point, there's an inflection that needs to occur and use pivot that needs to occur, and they could learn a lot about building a talented leadership team having the Rigor and discipline of a large organization while maintaining. Those agility characteristics, passion conviction, innovative thinking in those. That's the essence of that blog post. Doug is learning from the strengths of one another and to be great you should do all of those things. Well, how

And you know, it can be deceiving that when there's a beautiful home and they're not captured and put online the correct way. It will deter people from going to look at it because you know you with our photos we capture everything you want every bit of that beautiful home to show online wage, but to feed off what he just said, I would say from a photography standpoint Jake that's anything photography wise. He's just got he's the angles down. He's got the although I've taken these classes anybody can go take classes and I've learned this that side of it. So me and him can have them conversations without me but he's actually been in and done it and done. You got it. Well how many homes you've done already four or five hundred more? I don't know.

I'm telling you we were taking I didn't shoot each other for a list and we were in there about an hour and half 65-plus photos drones, you know, the whole nine yards is fantastic and so easy and not you know, you do it right on the website. So agents always people. I'm tired of seeing these blurry crappy pictures on the MLS every day. That's what we can try to log.

"David, print. The resolution again. Constitutional Free speech principles can save media companies from themselves. Our final speaker will be speaking against the resolution. Marija Shock Dutch politician and member of the European Parliament. We've heard from both sides. It is safe to conclude that technology is not neutral. And that no one wants censorship at least here in either one of the teams or that Minister of truth, so to say would be a very bad idea, so then why would we effectively effectively except that someone like mark? Zuckerberg but the other CEO's of the other social media companies are in a position of power to operate with their business models like ministers of truth, and this is far beyond free speech in the First Amendment. We're talking about the collection of data, the selling of data the micro targeting of people with. The GOREY's such of fans or interested, in Joseph Goebbels or having searched for information about depression and suicide. So what I find. Baffling and unacceptable is that these companies on the one hand have made billions and billions of dollars Bhai, perfecting the targeting of ads to people on the basis of ever more precise categories, and yet they claimed how can we be part of preventing conspiracies and all kinds of lies that jeopardized the public health for example to go from spreading around or child pornography for that matter. The reason why they do not want to engage in this is that it would make them liable. If they would be liable, their entire business would be would be over and the idea that it should be all the responsibility of the individual anyone from you all to decide what you WanNa see what you want. Engage in what you don't want engaging to what we heard. It's the responsibility of a Syrian journalist two one engage or not I believe that people are not informed enough. Enough currently to know what they're saying. Yes to, and in fact, these companies have violated agreements by selling and collecting data invisibly all the time, so I think it is safe to say that people don't know enough to make informed decisions that this is not only about free speech in the First Amendment about much more, and that's certainly we can conclude that the First Amendment cannot save social media companies from themselves, so I urge you to vote against the motion. Thank.

"Information, it's an amazing amazing thing, but the reality is online. Speech can also be awful. Ugly and cause real world harm. The question is what's the best way to address that problem. And the reality is that the current system of content moderation is not the answer. First of all the fact of the matter is social media. Platforms are just really bad at deciding what speech should stay up and what should stay down? We've seen prohibitions on hate. Speech us to shut down conversations between women and caller about online harassment. We've seen rules against harassment used to shut down the accounts of activists. In Egypt in the United States and around the world we've seen a ban on nudity to be used to take down classic artworks. Including The Philadelphia Museum of art had its account flagged because it posted a so called suggestive painting of a woman eating an ice cream cone. That was taken down facebook. Queer and transgender youth, hoping to connect with new communities are having difficulty doing so because of facebook's real names policy, which prevents them from engaging online anonymously and the final thing that makes me particularly frustrated is if the goal was to stop hate and counter extremism. It's not working. So for example facebook's real names policy that prevents people from engaging anonymously didn't stop Russia from gaming the system. So, it strikes me as just a little bit crazy. The so many people are pushing for the companies to double down on what is clearly of failing system. We need a better approach, and we can start by turning to our core constitutional principles. If we look to the first. Amendment as a guidepost, perhaps we could get to clear definitions of what content should and should not be restricted on what terms by looking for example decades of defamation law. Companies could apply strict scrutiny to their policies are default could be that speech stays up rather than going down following our long tradition of no prior restraints on speech, and above all we could have due process protections in the first, amendment context. The burden of proving that speech is unprotected or should be protected rests with the sensor. We should have the same situation with respect to social media, so we could have noticed to users before the content is taken down an opportunity to appeal and again the burden is on the sensor to explain why the speech should be taken down, and in the meantime it stays up because that is our default belief in this country. Thank you Sherry. Resolution again constitutional free speech principles can save social media companies from themselves. Here is our first debater speaking against.

"President trump has signed an executive order that would limit the federal protections enjoyed by online platforms like twitter and facebook. The order comes after twitter. This week added a fact. Checking notice to some of the president's tweets our reporter Rebecca Ball House says the tussle between the president and big social media. Companies has been brewing for a while the president since the early days of his administration has been vowing to take some kind of action against twitter and other social media companies for what he says is a liberal bias against him and against his conservative but until this week he has yet to really follow through with any action in twenty eighteen. He said that there was going to be an action. Coming soon. To address what he said was censorship by social media platforms in two thousand nineteen. He hosted a social media summit at the White House where he invited some of his most provocative supporters to share grievances against large technology companies but didn't announce any measures. They're either an earlier this month. He said his administration was working to remedy what he called in a legal situation where the left was in total command and control of facebook instagram. Twitter and Google but this executive order which has been talked about for years and sort of picked back up in the last few weeks would be the strongest most aggressive action that the administration has actually taken against these social media company. So far the order would make it easier for federal regulators to question online platforms when they suspend or delete users accounts in terms of how this executive order would change the game for technology companies. It's important to note that that the changes that are proposed in the order would be first of all would likely encounter quick court challenges but also would unlikely even if they weren't held up in the courts to actually take effect for for months at the very least with this executive order is trying to do is to clarify and strengthen the way that federal regulators interpret the current law. What THEY WANNA do is make it easier for federal regulators to hold companies like twitter and facebook liable for unfairly curbing user's speech and they wanNA limit the broad legal protection that federal law currently provides those companies but they're not proposing overhauling the law as it is nor? Do they really have the right to do that? What they are are trying to do is to direct the FCC to undertake a rulemaking process that would clarify the scope of this law. So that's something that that will take months if not years to actually talk about and some experts say that the SEC actually has no legal authority to enforce the law as it is for more on this story head to wsj.com.

"We're speaking with Gresham heartless about developing marketing strategy so gresh you mentioned Seo a minute ago and this is like the big mystery of any sort of digital marketing so I'm curious what mistake do most people make when they're working with Seo there's a there's a ton of them that people make if I could say maybe a few of the biggest ones is that not understanding that you're you having a website and you being online you pretty much have already started with Seo I say a lot of times it includes everything you do online so as I spoke about a little bit earlier that if you decide that you have your main businessman might be a cooking a cooking site or cooking blogger maybe like health consulting for people that are cooking different recipes and you decide do a sports blog and you try to Kinda conflict both of those things and you try to have both of those go to the same domain that can kind of negativity hurt you from search engine standpoint because all of a sudden your domain kind of has two different types of content coming to it in linking back to it so I think that you wanna be really it's not just you know a lot of times people you know tell their kids especially to say you know be careful what you put online and be careful what you post and things like that you also have to do that from a business standpoint because a lot of times you will confuse search engines because they're not sure exactly what is the follow when you go to that domain so you wanna be very diligent and careful about what you're doing from a domain standpoint and if you do one you know create that sports blog than you want to put that on a entirely different site and I think kind of a long allies of that is a lot of people will just get links in common and post on places just because they hear of something called back links which are essentially links that are not all your domain back to your site so a lot of times they will just go to different sites you know five or has places where you can purchase you know housing links for five dollars not understanding that back links are not they're not all equal so when you have a link that goes is from a different domain to your website and saying hey go to your click click on this and go to your website a lot of times they have different rings as well so when you have low quality back links it can actually hurt your domain more than anything else because you don't have you have low quality links going back to your site so for example like a a podcast site like yours where you you have so many so much renown and so much authority not just from the words that you received but also just from a search engine standpoint to have a link front in your domain going to a person site is really high quality but if it's somebody that maybe is not as trustworthy it's not gonna be equivalent so understanding that all links are not equal is somebody that has potentially been in business in has a a a higher authority from a search engine point especially provides really higher quality you know links as well and if I could give you one more is understanding income that A lot of people say depending on what the name of their businesses when they search for their business they can be found on search engines that's another big thing because a Lotta Times unless you have a tremendous advertising and marketing budget you may not have that brand awareness as much as you would for the service that somebody's providing so what I mean by that is for example.

I got my start as you said when I in two thousand fourteen I was actually working at the national offices for Environmental Charity International Charity Global Green and I I was at my desk in my office and this was five years ago almost to the day and a buddy of mine from college and I was a student journalist journalist college and I did some writing due out my young adult life but I mainly focused on social media and fundraising and he sent me what at that time was a video that very few people had seen and it was a video of the murder of a man Eric Garner right here in New York City and we didn't didn't know his name and had just been posted to youtube and many of us in the room horribly now seeing dozens of these types of videos but at that time there I had never been a viral video of police brutality and all that day I searched to see is anyone talking talking about this is are any news Allah sharing it. Where can I find out more and what I found in essence was kind of a a hole in the market for the next forty eight hours anything that you wanted to know about.
