"How much water we could use the house, how much clean water we could use out of the taps and how much we're going to have to reuse water like basically one bathtub full everybody takes a bath in one after the other type of thing. So that, really drove home to me how important water is our daily lives got pretty disrupted by not having access to water every day. and that kind of spurred my interest in you know water clean water access to water that led me kind of into the field that I'm in today. Yeah. So the area since like such as the place that you grew up and is going through an extreme drought what happens to the Aquifer. Is there any sub subsidence subsidence? Yeah. So where I live, we were getting all of our water from a reservoir. So we weren't accessing groundwater in fact most of Africa. Does it really tap into its groundwater resources yet. So it's a huge untapped. Water resource for them. But yeah a lot of places with drought. If especially, if you're still having withdrawals from your groundwater system, you have subsidence occur and that creates compaction. It means you can never really refill your groundwater up to the same level that it was before. So that motivated you, right. So yeah. Yeah. I got I like it really hit home I'll wait what is really important. You know like as a kid, you suddenly not being able to have something that you wanted. Like. You know makes you think about how important it is. And That drought had nothing to do with like how humans were using the water wasn't like we were suddenly over. Using. Way Too much water we ran out it was just the the climate got a little drier for five or so years, and we gradually just we didn't have enough water running into our reservoir. So we didn't have enough water to drink type of thing So sort of. Really illustrated to me that kind of connection between the larger earth and how it works and how climate patterns and weather patterns work and the consequences that can have one little household Ray Yeah and it could have been anywhere in the world that was just where I happened to love at the time. Right. So is that area like is that normal like typical pattern? To see in that area for seven years, you go through a drought or it's not uncommon for areas of Africa, in general experienced drought. So in you know, for example, like a few years ago there wasn't a really big drought in South Africa part of South Africa in Cape Town almost ran out of water. So very similar type of situation in some ways so. Yes especially when you don't have ax if you're really dependent upon your surface water systems, you very much more susceptible to changes in climate and droughts and things like that. In the southwestern United States, we kind of get around the fact that weather might be really dry at times because we pipe water in from other states essentially to help maintain water supply to places like, Phoenix, and L..

"How did you get involved in? In this in hydrology and everything that you love to do when I was growing up we. Didn't grow up in the United States I grew up in mostly in South Africa, and we had this really long period of drought of his seven years was hardly any rain and gradually we were using we just had less and less water and we put on these very strict rations how much water we could use the house, how much clean water we could use out of the taps and how much we're going to have to reuse water like basically one bathtub full everybody takes a bath in one after the other type of thing.

"So if you WanNa see what people are doing, you should you can just go to the data and. Test it yourself I mean you have to have some quantitative skills right you have to know how to work with date into some kind of analyses, but but sciences working really hard to be transparent because part being a good scientists and doing it sciences making it reproducible. So right other people should be able to go look at what you did take the same data you used get the same or very, very similar result with using a very similar approach. Yeah. And you are very comfortable with working with large data sets. So there are people that you worked on with rivers. Rivers I'm sorry leaks. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Worked on the paper that was like several hundred lakes and then I we finished another one where we worked with you know many more lakes looking at ice covering loss of ice cover, and then right now I'm just starting on a project where we're using satellites to collate color, and that is like mind boggling because there's like eighteen million lakes in the world. So that is a very, very large amount of data when you start looking at all of those lakes and how they've changed over the season's right yeah. So do you like any programs like our? Our is a fantastic program to us, open source lots of people use it for lots of different. Tools you can do you know data analysis on it. You can look at how many tweets there are certain subjects using. Our can do it's really very powerful and frady. So that's that's one of the reasons are growing so fast. For my remote-sensing project I, actually work with people who have huge ts in in. Dealing with remote sensing images and those kind of violence data. So they're they're using a lot of tools like that NASA has built for extracting images from satellites and things like that too so. Yeah satellite road sensing is become very popular in many fields studies. Yeah it gets used for like everything I mean whether predictions right is the simplest most common way satellite information gets used but Yeah. Tracking the plumes from wildfires tracking dust plumes like tracking. You know ships across as they move across the ocean understanding, Lake water temperatures, or late color or. How fast the rainforest is growing, you know it's amazing way for us to collect information about places. We just couldn't really get to physically very easily, right? Yeah. So so how did you get involved in? In this in hydrology and everything that you love to do when I was growing up we. Didn't grow up in the United States I grew up in mostly in South Africa, and we had this really long period of drought of his seven years was hardly any rain and gradually we were using we just had less and less water and we put on these very strict rations.

"Right don't even really go ice fishing or anything like that. So yeah, the winters are definitely warmer than they used to be when I was a little kid, our neighbors had snow mobile. Lined up in their backyard and they have like little. cards, but like little places where they can like store them on time. And he would play on them all day long. Yeah. Just pretend like were riding motorcycles and stuff. Didn't care and now that I'm older my uncle, he's really into snowmobiling. Now they have to go all way up to Michigan. Yeah exactly. That's basically what's going to happen. If you'd like winter sports, you're just GONNA have your further north, right? You know ice fishing or snowmobiling or skiing or something like that. Yeah. Yep. What super interesting is even though we're losing a lot of the snow. Accumulation every winner. The bitterness is still there. Like, for example, like. Of there being a winter. Like, last year and the year before we have polar vortexes. Yes. New. I feel like, yes it is a little new in fact, it's so new that. You know scientists didn't really have a lot of data on them because they don't they didn't to occur very often right. But nowadays, you think about our modern way of doing sciences like weather stations all over the world. So when a polar vortex happens tons of data comes in from all these weather stations, scientists can use their computer models to analyze all these data, and basically what is happening with these polar vortex is, is we get right a big pulse of cold air. Down from the north, but the reason we get that airs 'cause there's a big pulse of warm air being pushed up to the north. In fact, there's so much warm air accumulating around the equator that it it has to go somewhere just can't build up and build up there. So that warm air kind of pushes north and when it pushes up north on one side of the globe, the other side of the globe gets a downward hit of the cold Arctic air and so. What has been happening to us the last few winters. Yeah. So climate change isn't just about global warming I mean it could change in any temperature and sense about just changes in all aspects of climate. So getting warmer getting cooler in some places. For example, there are on average many lakes around the world are warming, but there are actually getting cooler and that's not what you would necessarily expect. Right. But those lakes are getting cooler because there's glacial meltwater coming into the Lake and now the glaciers are melting faster. So there's more cold water coming into the lake every summer, and so over the long run actually..
Facts are Demonstrated
"Outside the United States anywhere in the world climate change is a fact. But the United States, it's a belief. What are your thoughts on that? Beliefs are for religion. And traditions, cultural traditions, religious traditions facts are things that can be demonstrated to. Occur, you know with data with data, they're supported by data so we have a lot of data on climate in general and. The data shows that climate is changing. So there really is no question about all of that happening. And it's you know yeah, I want to say it's kind of. The Earth's climate change we would be wrong to think that it would be static because the earth is is variable over time. It's just right now we happen to be living in a time when the earth is changing very rapidly and we should decide do we want to just see if we can hang in there with all this change or do we want to adapt and get ready and prepare for these changes because the changes are going to make our lives different we should probably want to be ready for that

"People from Fox with me. So I had a very good core of journalists to set us up for a daily broadcast called the no spin news which we do every night. And then the radio syndicator came at me and I always love Paul Harvey, and so I- resurrected the Paul Harvey fifteen minute newscasts every day, and we do that on more than three hundred radio stations every day. So, the combination of radio and television built or audience, I think were the most profitable news internet. Organization in the world. Right now? We, have an enormous amount of people who follow us and pay a fee a small I keep. Very very reasonable. So everybody can come on in. And we have grown grown since January the pandemic started. My company Mr Speaker has gone from five Million Dollar Company to a twenty five million. Dollar Company. In well, what nine months? And it's because. Unlike most television news organizations, we don't have an agenda. You know I'm a traditional Guy Eileen conservative in some issues but I don't have an agenda. I, wrote a book on Donald Trump the United States trump. That is the fairest book on Donald. Trump. I think that's ever been written. And I am not in business to promote any politician or do anything people know that. I had twenty plus years at Fox they were him. So we have been very very successful, but the best thing is that I don't have to work for corporations. So I can do pretty much what I want to do, and that meant a lot to me in my lifestyle. I think that's tremendous. Achieved Because I watch you and we chatted as you were leaving Fox and I watched. You have evolved and it's really very, very impressive. You'RE A. Unique figure in the number of people who would meyer you pay attention to you and their willingness to follow you. That's in a sense. What a remarkable success of your books told us you and I have something in common and I think your listeners should know this. So I've known as speaker. Now for twenty five years, we bleed for our country. I mean Newt Gingrich and Bill o'riley. This is what we have in common we believe. For our country. You may disagree with me you may disagree with Newt Gingrich and that's fine. That's fine. I am so. Emotional. About America and so everything that I do isn't money.

"L. Y.. Thank you to seen by indeed the question that's somewhat tangential to that coming back to the idea Of Your nonfinancial company. It is hard to compete for top talent. If you are not one of these financial companies because a lot of the best talent can go to a place black AIRBNB or stripe and get not only great cash positions but can get a lottery tickets that can mean so much money in a financial last company and as you have shifted to becoming coming more and more of a technology platform in some ways your growth is going to be bottlenecked. By how many good strong engineers you can get Oregon's the strategic leadership leadership so. How do you reconcile that competition for talent with the financial companies well? I think that I won't deny deny the serious challenge competing with companies that have effectively have a currency that is valuable super money. Yes I've called super money. First first off idealism goes a long way there are people who are sick and tired of working for companies that they don't feel good about but also I think there's it's also a bit of fatigue at the lottery nature of this thing. Yes there are companies. There are definitely companies where you can get a guaranteed return Amazon. We'll pay are you in stock and keeping off the other hand if you're kind of going to a startup that's becoming less and less because the big guys are in fact doing it wrong long exactly in the way that I'm saying they're taking too much of the value. Think about some of the companies have invested in where it was sort of like. Oh Yeah Amazon. Says that's a really nice idea. Sell to us or we'll do it. I think there are a lot of people have felt like they've been they've been screwed over by the venture capital model we in which which they're basically cannon fodder chips in bedding in a in a casino mindset. So that's part of it. The other thing I think really helps us. We have distributed Work Environment so we can hire people in who are not here in Silicon Valley where everything's so expensive and they're they're good engineers all over and we work a lot remotely and we've kind of developed A. Yeah so I think it's the combination of values of the combination of being distributed company. I mean there's no question that would we like to be able to get people more easily absolutely files say my wife. Jan Pocket runs a nonprofit offer code for America where trying to get people where there's absolutely no prospect of an exit or outcome and you still find good people you know when she was at the White House in recruiting people for the United States digital service. People say well I can make Larry and Sergei a a little bit richer or I can. I can make it possible for people to get healthcare anything about the healthcare dot Gov rescue team. That came out of Google where they're like. Oh Yeah and they thought it was just going to be a temporary thing and then it was sort of like whoa you know. We're really impacting people's lives here and at Google. We're not doing no not anymore. I think that's people want to have a positive impact and people want to make a difference. Yeah AH since. We're Kinda near the end of our time. I want to go into some further-flung questions because you do right. A lot of editorials not a lot but you read enough editorials to make me curious and follow your twitter. The concept of publisher versus platform. We've explored this a little bit but more in the context of O'Reilly which is Pretty Tame relative to the questions faced by some of the other publisher slash platform question marks people have have vastly divergent views on how sympathetic they are towards twitter and facebook for the kinds of content moderation and censorship issues news that they have. Do you have any concise perspective for what these companies should be doing differently. Do even have enough experience. Experience with this domain to legislate from the outside or do we have to just give credence to facebook and youtube a tube in twitter and just assume they're doing their best. What can we actually say confidently about what they should or should not be doing? Well I guess I would say a couple of things there first off the way we talk about the issue is really badly broken. This is not about free. Speech ever is not about free speech because if you think about how social media works anyone can speak right but what the the question is not about censorship. It's not about stopping somebody from saying something it's about. How much St you amplify choose to amplify what they have said? And Chris Cox. who was the chief product officer facebook? I felt put it pretty. Well he says I think car issue is anybody can speak. But we don't have a responsibility to give them a AB can get on their soapbox on facebook but we are not responsible for gathering their audience. And we shouldn't be you know. So what's the the way I think about facebook and twitter and Google to the extent they do this a youtube. They are absolutely responsible for their curation. They're absolutely just like if New York Times chooses to put fake news on its front page you go eight curated that stuff up to the front and yet that is what facebook. He's doing all the time this stuff. Yes they're individual front pages but to the front and they. They should be held accountable for that. That that being said I think they are working very hard on it and were really good examples of this. Recently those a new study came out and somebody said everyone talks about how youtube radicalize people what we just did this new scientific study and we found that in fact youtube is is actually making people more more moderate when they reach out to renee arrest of who'd been one of the early people who was raising the flag on this and she said Yeah because they've changed what they do in response to all of the red flags that were going up so that they have made off where these people getting the data that they're talking about for doing in these gigantic studies like it seems so questionable to me that you could actually get enough data to really say this with you know. This is a very good book by Yokoi. Bank learned earned team at Harvard called network propaganda where they were just using. You know you can get public twitter data for example they were studying and that was another thing. What percentage there's bots like you don't know what the denominator is so I mean the point is if whether there's bots or humans you can kind of look at what what happens to it on the network? Does it matter to you if it's about that got on your front page. If that's what they're trying to measure they're just trying to say how does it propagating the BOT if they're measuring whether B- bought got radicalized like if they're saying oh this this was the before radicalization this was after radicalization. It whether or not it's about matters Adar's well sure but I mean I think I'm not sure you would even consider that a bought would be radicalized because the has a purpose now but that's the point is how would you identify the data set for a study like this. If you're trying to identify how humans anyway I am deep into the. I do think that we are Holding these guys feet to the fire is important but recognizing how much progress they have made and how much effort they've put in towards it is important because if you contrast them with you know mainstream traditional media there are companies. Fox's are notable example actually has a business mall right around actually canonizing misinformation back. Yoke is book network propaganda. They literally looked the spread of fake news. And they said look it actually starts equally on the left and the right on the left. Mainstream media tends to tamp down rumors you know they they start they start to spread and then at some point they mainstream media so ten doesn't kind of raise them to the top on the right it gets up to the top stop and Fox as real news and that's the big difference and so here's a company that whose business model is to spread misinformation information and I guess that's always been true. You know you think back William Randolph hearst and the Spanish American war you WANNA war. I'll give you a war but we are in an era of yellow journalism and I think that there is a mainstream media conspiracy to blame tech. I agree and Dan that we need to basically not by that because the tech companies are doing more than any of the mainstream media companies to actually fight this and the mainstream media companies are still like they're like man they're eager for their clicks so they'll do click bait headlines. Even the best made need now that being said there. Is this issue that the you know this fundamental Achilles heel of the social media engagement model that tends to reward sensationalism so little bit. There is a problem that you know. Companies like facebook are trying the moderate content that they are also incentivizing. And that's a serious problem completely agreed. Love Your Summers Station. There there was the case of cloudflare making a decision to shut down a white supremacy site that was hosted on cloudflare's servers do you think hosting companies should be forced to be treated as content moderation platforms should they be total open blank platforms. How should they answer this question? I think again this goes back to. I think a lot of people don't really understand the concept of censorship ship. Censorship is something that a government can do. Censorship is something that someone empowered us. If somebody says look I don't want your business because I don't appreciate your values. I think that's perfectly reasonable consumer decision. It's no different than somebody saying again. It's tough because there are. There are cases where government intervenes says. For example. These are protected classes. You can't discriminate on the basis of race. You can't discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. You can't discriminate. You know that's but again that's that's the government which is something that expresses our collective will making that determination termination and that's why mark was saying. Hey we really liked the government to give us more guidance on some of these things but in the absence of that guidance there's no reason why facebook for example. You know my personal advice to mark. Look you gotTa stop pretending that this is some kind of vast democracy where users get to decide this free speech your king. Your job is to be a good king and the best thing A. I didn't didn't go anywhere but I think if if he had values around like no. This is a bunch of stuff that I really don't believe yes. Hey if Rupert Murdoch can say I don't believe in climate change and I'm going to basically not cover any of it and I'm GonNa. Nobody talks about that as like. Oh my God how is it. That Fox's censoring any news about climate change or deny an amplifying climate denial and they're not having on their feet to the fire. That's there because every while that's their right as a media company you know so why would it be any different. FACEBOOK said No. Actually we're taking a stand on some issues and I think that they're a little bit lily-livered hiding behind the free speech idea and I love it when somebody says no we're not going to host a white supremacist site. We're not gonNA host hateful content. We are going to actually take action. I think we need more of that. Not less of it and then of course if there are you know where so you get into. Issues is when companies are in a position of great power when somebody has a monopoly but I I actually think many of the most most of the a lot of Maui of social media companies by the right wing saying you are censoring. When in fact the evidence is the opposite? They're actually in fact. I just read Steve Levy's forthcoming book about facebook and there's a lot of evidence from inside facebook that they were basically like in the two thousand sixteen election. They Hillary was going to win so they spent a lot of time trying to appease the rightwing wipe them off. It's not gonNA matter so they actually Samat opinion. There were opinions of people on the inside. Who Thought Yeah? We are basically appeasing the right way. It wasn't whereas the right way saying that you're censoring us. No they're actually amplifying and I think that the idea. We will get better at all this. I do think that is true but I do think it is a it is a because it has become the subject of a kind of kind of cyber warfare. that's going to be hard and we have a lot a long way to go before it gets better and in fact it may never forget better. I don't know if you've read Neil Stevenson's fall but it opens with so great kind of like little section where they're really talking about people who you know. This is massive disinformation campaign on facebook and people. Just don't WanNa know the truth or not. facebook on the equivalent of social media. Sounds like reality literally where this fake nuclear explosion. People won't go to the town like to see that it's still actually still there and eh the willing desire of certain parties to believe certain things and have nonconsensual real you know like hey whatever. That is something that is problematic. I do have to say if you have the perspective of history you do realize these things things can get so seriously out of control they end you end up with the fall of civilization. Yeah this is a wonderful book called the swerve which is really about the rediscovery of science in the renaissance but it starts with kind of like the beautiful picture of the devotional literacy literacy and knowledge in the Roman Empire and is sort of turning point. Where is a female Egyptian mathematician I- PATIE- stoned to death for being smart? You know and that's kind of in some ways in the telling of green blast book that is the turning point of that leads to the Dark Ages. Yeah and you know. We're basically there was a turning away from knowledge and I think we have big parts of our society look at something like climate climate change where people are saying. Yeah we don't want to believe the scientists we WANNA believe and there are people who have their political or commercial interests pushing that narrative errative and then there's people who who swallow it and and then we've been you know we see this sort of turning against expertise and there's a lot of people playing with fire and and this huge issues at stake not just the politics but look at the environment and you look at where the future goes. Helping people able to navigate. This new landscape is really important to.

"It's not just at the level of well you need. They have your developers learn about tends to flow or Pie. Torch is also that you actually have to understand whereas data going to be who collects exit. Who curates it? How do we clean it? What kind of people do we need to build a data pipeline into these processes and that stuff that's more easily digested in in conference format? In many cases I think the organizational touchy feely side of things. It is but but again you have to have the big picture in order to to know. How do you give people context this great quote from this Guy Edward Schlossberg that? I've always loved and tried to live by. He said the skill of writing thing is to provide a context in which people can think and so often people go astray. Because they don't they don't take the time time to get the big picture and that's one of the things that we've always tried to do in Riley books it. which is you know to have an introduction my working theory when I first so a lot of our formats was that this really two kinds of knowledge in those books one? Is this big picture. How does this thing work? How do all the pieces fit together? And then there's very specific knowledge wishes. Well what function do I call. Or what command do I issue and that you wanted to give people enough context pretty quickly because many of our users are in a hurry that they could then dropping been anywhere later and they would know enough to be able to be oriented. So it's kind of like a little bit like when you go to a new city you know you. How do you get a big picture? Sure of this is the area where this great restaurants. This is where the shopping is. This is where this museum is amazing. Or whatever it might be that you're interested in this is how you get out and there's a great park so you have that level of orientation and then you kind of like. Well how do I get there. What do I do WanNa get there one of the opening hours? So there's all these analogies there that you can start to say well. How do those play out in the way people learn and do things online? Your your company started as a media company. I mean well not really. We start as a documentation. Come we rename. The company around the media was originally O'Reilly Alien Associates. Because we were literally band of Consultants Alameda documentations kind. Whatever yeah media when people think media they often they advertising is your yeah we? We've always been that eventually evolved into a technology company. Yeah yeah tell me about crossing chasm from being a publisher of content to that plus more of a platform. That's been a big challenge challenge for us and I think that it we were held back for a number of years by the fact that it was a joint venture are online platform we had we started in two thousand one and we invited our biggest competitor time Pearson Technology Group in as a partner and so it was set up a service separate company and we didn't take full control of it back till two thousand fourteen. We really should have done it much sooner. Because you know any any vet. You're always what was it originally called it was called safari books online safari books online. Okay so that was with you in Pearson. Oh Gosh that would have been really hard unwind. Yeah it was and you know if we could have done it a few years earlier it would have been much better better but it was just meant that we was harder to be hands on with the platform because we have these people who were pouring into both companies they were. It was a separate company once once we took control of it again we kind of had to really get in there and start seeing what was going on and and went through a couple of false starts but then we see I think we we. We really started to hit our stride. The thing that you know this is the other side of what I'm spending a lotta time on apart from things like really trying to understand how we build around the future of learning but the other is what does it mean to be a platform and if you look at a lot of things. I've been writing publicly like in the piece written in courts they're really about what's wrong with the idea that seems to be the Silicon Valley playbook today which is winner takes all because if you really want to have a platform it's got to be good for the people who use it and there was this great line which Abend tops who writes this great newsletter as local strength equerry calls the Bill Gates Line. He has a wonderful post. It's a conversation between Bill Gates and Pala helped who was head of so-called recalled facebook platform and bill apparently said that's not a platform a platform is win the people who use it. Get more out everything you do now. It's funny you have bill. Be The one saying that but I with them. Because of course Microsoft that was true originally Microsoft's our take take too much out of the platform and and that led the lots of problems. But that is in fact the key idea and I've been writing about the way it looks to me. You know by looking at the. The financial goals financials and so on that they're taking more and more of the value out of the web and is becoming less vibrant as a platform and They've been there. Was this sweet spot where they were really allocating value very fairly to lots and lots of people and now they're allocating more and more of the value to themselves just like Microsoft did on the PC and apple's doing the same thing in the in the APP store. And I've really been working very hard to understand how we don't do that at a Riley. You know it's very easy to give yourself privileged access very easy to say a while we introduce this new feature while we're taking more of the PIE is great right. This different kinds of of again. Dif- different terminology here. Ben would disagree with me on on showroom maybe ABM thinking about mixing up whether anyways maybe somebody else bay idea platforms standing for every dot com platforms versus Agri every eight hours and so on but you know there are people who are pure enablers. You think about something like stripe. They don't control anything they don't you know they've just provided some infrastructure. Lavar twilly William whatever you know whereas like Google or facebook or Amazon whether you called Niagara Gate or platform. They're really in the position to decide who who gets. What and why? which is they control the economy of their platform? And there's a real temptation to cheat. Microsoft accepted it on the PC. You know they gave themselves privileged. API's they also were there saying well. Great wow this is great applications. We'll we'll do those two and then they privileged their own applications. Now you see the same thing with Google. There's various kinds of of content that really are commodities. You know where you kind of go okay. Everybody's building Liane weather data provided by the government. Well Google or Stock Day there. Whatever it is public the public data? And that's fair but then there are things like you know say tripadvisor which spent fifteen years building up the database of customer comments and then Google says well we. We've got to do that. We're going to actually. We think we don't WanNa pay these guys this way we can. It was use our platform position to put our content. I are reviews. I I kind of think. That's very much. The Microsoft play so I went back to Riley. We do have a privileged position. Because we're both the platform for online learning platform and we're a participant so a still makes me smile the time it was must have been two and a half years ago. Whenever we introduced our live online training Laura Baldwin our president who really runs the company day to day calls an emergency urgency meeting of our team? We have a real problem. We we introduced live online training. And it's been so successful that Pearson's revenue is GonNa fall by half in the next month. This is a problem. Yeah it wasn't like wow we just took we introduce this new feature first of all we entered when we introduce. We socialize it to all our to our partners. But sorry this was win Pearson was still a part of it Nope Pearson. They're just they're not an owner now. Oh but they're still still on the platform as our hundreds of other publisher's content but we introduced this new feature but we went all in on it. We we introduced one hundred live online trainings and Pearson introduced ten. You know and so it was such a successful new feature that the revenue is allocated among publishers in proportion of usage and we were just as actually usage spices a somewhat complicated algorithm for. But boy it was. We sucked huge amount of value out of the platform. And what we ended up doing was radically reducing the price of our online trainings until the other people on the platform. Quick catch up because our goal wasn't to like take the value it was to keep them producing value. And I've been thinking a lot about this this. Id of two sided markets. Maybe some of this. Actually I started thinking about this a lot with Uber and lift some of these online matching marketplaces. Where you go track drivers offers you gotTA drive passengers? And that was the first piece I wrote for court Sue Critique of Split scale it because there was so much capital they were able to say. Oh we're just going to optimize for the passenger side and we're gonNA screw drivers and they treated the drivers as sort of fungible resource in fact if if of capital had been less scarce. We might have got a different balance of who gets what and why it was just that fundamental question of economics and you go okay. Well we'RE GONNA have to pay this much to the drivers GonNa have to pay this much of the passengers and and in a way. I think we've forgotten that a platform thrives lives when it suppliers thrive so at a Riley. We're spending a lot of time so when we introduce a new feature like cat go to how do we get other people on board. How can they use it? How do we teach them to create content in areas? That we're not GONNA do it. I think you know most of the platforms. I see out there. They're like they. Maybe they start by a bootstrapping some content from outside providers. And then they're like well. Actually you know this is a really lucrative area. We should do this ourselves. I think are fundamental commitment to this assess a platform play. He gives something very distinctive. If you don't.

"So you asked about Kakada. The reason why we can't a CODA is because it really fits squarely into this vision because one of the things that is unique about Canada CODA is it's not just. Es you can build these. He's learning paths and learning environments. Where you're able to say? Hey you WanNa do this thing. You know we're gonNA teach you about how to do this thing with coober Nazis and so so go through this This scenario you know the first of all that that idea that category of what they call scenarios is very much like what we did in our. You know cookbooks. Years ago in fact when we rolled out category on the platform we actually converted. A bunch of of material from some are cookbooks. And just put it into Calcutta explain. What category is very similar in many ways to Jupiter notebooks but it has a broader scope of things that you can do it? and Ah the environment's more integrators basically effectively a description of a process with embedded code that you can execute and here's the thing that got me super excited about I think about myself as I don't even monthly basis anymore code occasionally way you know and if forget things so I think about when I got married in two thousand fifteen. I built a wedding up site. I E how. Oh I do that I go okay. Let me look this much. Get help right so I downloaded. Oh they're using Jenkins you know and I kind of have to figure out a bunch of things about a never used Jenkins against before but it's pretty straightforward and you know there's some documentation and the and the site and I can sort of code that I can look at and I can modify and I go. Yeah just take out their image and put it in my image and take out their words and put it in my words and stuff but there were a bunch of things that I went back month later and I wanted to change something and I'd forgotten it all I had to go back and look at the documentation again so when catacomb came along I thought about. Wow this this whole world of occasional tasks for example when you think about our corporate customers are online platform us a lot by by corporate customers customers and you think about something like you know saying well. We use this particular set of libraries. They got their on boarding New People. You know we use this particular. Coding Environment Yeah here's our policies and procedures and now you imagine building that in an environment where you can actually execute it you know because that integration of documentation execute code is super interesting. And I've actually been interested in this idea for decades literally. I think one of the things that's most interesting in software is this in some sense. The moving and shifting of the boundaries. Between what the computer does and what the human does and back I guess it was nineteen ninety eight okay. So That's you know twenty one years ago. I wrote at this Serb writing and actually it was nine thousand nine hundred and up to about two thousand three. I think actually the peace. I'm thinking of two thousand three. It was called hardware software after an info were and it was really around this idea that in the earliest days of computing the human machine interface was very close to the metal. You know there were guys back in the early days literally programmed by flicking flipping switches on the front of a machine. Right you know. It's like literally. They were setting bits and then when I started my very first manual ever wrote was an assembly language program annual. You know. It's like move this data into this register. And then you know you still have more and more high level languages and then you get all the way up and the time I wrote this piece. It was it was really spent much time in the late nineties in early thinking about why scripting languages were starting to take off these these things with late binding perl python some others. That are no longer really around. That much like tickle and a lot and there was this great line from this guy. House on Schroeder who was son's first webmaster said Pearl is the duct tape of the Internet. And I thought about that. You know this occasional programming. You know so it's like you go to a conference and they use duct tape to put the wire to hold the wires ars down because guess what they're not going to be there tomorrow. You know knows this idea that this is. The interface has become much more dynamic and there was this other aspect about it. I thought that was really interesting. which was thinking about? HTML as a real breakthrough. I did this contrast between say Microsoft word which was sort of state of the art you know. OPEC software at the time and this new thing the web which was really starting to take off and they said look in an application like Microsoft word. You have little bits of human speech embedded in software code. You know there's menus there's prompts and basically somebody has has sort to put in the human speech into a program now look how. HTML reverses the paradigm you actually with with CGI wishes the original way that you had dynamic content in a webpage. What we're doing is we're actually embedding programs and programmed actions into a human document webpage? You Click on that link and it fires up a program you know we've inverted the paradigm and I think if you look at the way that we're continuing and to evolve software. We are increasingly bringing it closer and closer to where people are effectively going to be program well again. They're not even programming. They're basically but they are calling stored procedures and if you can see the continuity between a programmer saying load this library and then execute this function you go this really. We're we're basically at higher and higher level loading more and more code and then you kind of think about the end user who says okay Google Point is I think we will get to a point. Where we we have the speech interfaces? That really worked pretty well in fact they already do work. Pretty Darn well for a lot of things things that you you know you used to have to the entered commands and now you can just talk so I guess what I'm saying is that you know the guiding idea that we're playing with it a rally or one of the guy the hi. This is this idea of the continuum of the human machine interface and the ability to help people to understand how to use the computer to help them with a task or to accomplish your task all along that continuum and I think a lot of the guiding metaphor that many people use when they think about online training is a little bit like we're going to accelerate the London Black Cabbie in getting the the knowledge when what we're trying to do is say no no we're going to build better and better interfaces where people can actually actually do things and have to say less. Do less explain less. Learn less in order to get the computer to jump through hoops. And the reason why you want to do that is the more you can make easy the more you can reserve your actual. You're we are learning and hard brainpower for things that are now hard. I was loved the one of the Pearl sayings back in the ninety s that I was loved was the the aim of Pearl is to make easy things easy and hard things possible. And that's a lot of what we try to do. We try to make things easy and hard things possible so outta that far cutting edge you know you really may have to learn a radically new skills you know when when people get a book like really get on a wonderful book on tests flow learn. He's got this incredible pedagogy for explaining how you direct your head around deep learning because hey this is new hard stuff but there's a lot of things where you just kind of go now actually.

"Software California daily. Glad to be here. The last time we spoke you were thinking about how to capture the opportunity of upskilling and this was in the context of love. upskilling both low skilled workers and high-skilled workers people who are already in technology for example and there are many ways to be upskilled guild. There's books and videos and mentorship conferences. Is there a single best way. Is there an ideal curriculum. Through which an individual can it'd be upskilled. I don't really think about it necessarily through the Lens of curriculum in other ways what we really have to a start to do is to think about what technology makes possible in learning. How do we learn things today? Or how do we gain skills skills. How does technology up skills? I was invited recently to keynote at a conference called Ed crunch in Moscow so I spent some time thinking about how how I would introduce this story and I started with this wonderful New York Times magazine article about the knowledge of the streets and monuments. That's of London which is generally considered difficult exams in the world. People study three years. You'll literally you must become human. GPS in order to pass the exam. The Exam Cam is a half day where they throw your this corner and you have to go to this place recite turn by turn directions that you would use to get there at this. The time of day and people are really spend years on motorcycles on foot on bicycles walking the streets of London memorizing rising every every turn and so I asked this audience. I said you know if you wanted to accelerate the process of people both learning to get around in London. Is The answer better training for how to master the knowledge and the note. Today we actually have a device that we outsource that knowledge to and I use the example. I just arrived in Moscow for the first time I of Very quickly able to Orient Myself get anywhere and the critical point is that even though I originally used used the. GPS TO GET AROUND PRETTY quickly. I could find my way back to all these places that I wanted to go and so it is a kind of actually something was originally class system and learning Latin or Greek us. Something that's called. The Trot Trot is actually a parallel parallel parallel translation of this classical texts in fact this lobe classics out of Oxford. University is on one side is Greek on and the other pages the facing pages English and you can basically refer back and go okay. How does all this work eventually? You kind of learn to do without that aid. A A lot of people think that the GPS trains people to not learn that way around. And you can do that. You can become can ignore things or or become less skilled but I think if you use it correctly it can be a great aid for helping you be upskilled so the question. I posed using that analogy of Google Google maps. So what is the analysis. Technology for software developers and the state of the art in what software engineer has had access to to have that on boarding or education tool or guidance tool that coincidentally also gives you education over time. That's gone from a book to perhaps a website right to maybe a conference a variety of tools. The state of the art. Today you could. Argue is a a guided learning process that to some extent synthesizes the previous pieces of technology we have and to some extent is completely new so For example there is an online learning platform that you acquired recently called Cata Coda. Can you explain the value of Cata Coda and how it compares to this. GPS analogy drawn. Well let me actually back up a little bit. Because I don't actually think that Cata Coda per se is analysis analysis to GPS for software engineer. What's analysis to Google? MAPS is most likely get hub. If you think about Outta you know when you say I WanNa do this thing. which is the equivalent of I want to get from point? A. To Point B. The critical knowledge is actually encoded. Did by somebody into a software library perhaps or some reusable piece of code and that's the equivalent of just follow the directions actions. You know it's like I WanNa do this mathematical functions. Oh load non pie and you don't actually have to know the algorithm anymore. More you just have to know which function call said. I spent some time thinking about this analogy and then so then I said well. What role do we play Atarot Riley because what we used to do is a little bit like teaching people the knowledge as You said a book a conference video so pursuing this analogy astir thinking a little bit about comment that was made to me by of all people incarcerated person at San Quentin? He was in a coding program called the last mile and He was about to get out and he said you know I wanNA do. A startup based last mile is teaches incarcerated people code. I came into give talk to them and he said you know this all. I used to work in. Fisherman's WARF when these people. They can go anywhere in this people who can take them anywhere they want to go. But they don't know where to go and a lot of ways that's the analogy to what we do at our Riley today. It's much more helping people understand again. We still actually. There's a lot of complexities in this analogy. And I'm still trying to think it through but let me just give you a great example. Many times the the question is how do I get to a particular place. It's I want to get to a kind of place so again using this. GPS analogy. I just came back from a holiday at a wonderful resort and the south coast of Mexico called Playa Viva and and I would never have known to say you know. How do I get to play? Aviva what my wife did was. She said we want to have a you know she. Actually he posted it on facebook. She said I want to know. We're trying to put together an event for about thirty people. Were looking for a small place that we can take over. You know she kind of put out some general ideas and did this so social search and somebody's at point of this thing and then we go to tripadvisor and tripadvisor. We'll discuss them like forty five hundred reviews and forty four hundred of them are five star of you never seen anything like it and go well. That's clearly our place and I reach Chaff Guy and we ended up having a marvelous time. But there's a lot of things where you go. I WanNa do something like this and so this is big range of of ways that you have to think about this problem of. I WanNa do this thing. How do I do it? And what we're trying to build eld at a Riley is a range of answers to that question because sometimes you know exactly what you WanNa do you know. You don't know how outed how to do it. In which case we're really doing a lot more work on the search function in our online platform. So that we can just get to answers for example you know so you you say I WanNa do this task again. We've done this in books before we had this cookbooks series. The pro are the python cookbook that. PHP whatever yeah where. It's like. I WanNa do this task. How do I do it? And it's a one or two page quick explanation. We had our hacks books which were slightly bigger more complicated needed tasks way back in Nineteen ninety-two. I wrote a book power tools. That was your. How do I do this thing? And they're so small answers and now we're algorithm mickley starting to surfaced that stuff so you can ask specific questions you know so anyway. The things that I'm thinking about okay. So this set of questions which ranged from the very general where you want in a you. You may want advice and so that hey we have a case study in our online platform where somebody says I. I want to introduce agile into government. Has anybody else ever done this. You know and you go. Yeah we point them to Somebody from from the United States digital service or somewhere else or saying. Hey Yeah. We did Agile in government. Here's how you know. So that's a high level request a little bit like I wanna find aligned to resort. That's kind of like this and then other times. It's all the way down to write this particular regular expression. or how would I do you know what's hyper parameter in out of them. You know this very specific questions. And there's very general questions Russians and and I think what we've tried to do which I think very different from many other online learning platforms is. We haven't basically said that are fundamental job is to take you on this sort of guided tour of some. We're GONNA TAKE FROM A to C or the era. We're going to basically do some of that. We do have courses. We do have live online trainings. That say hey you WanNa do this thing thing you know steps. Here's the step-by-step stuff. Worked along with me but we also have this playground that's is a lot more like GPS or the web. Where so you're basically able to ask general questions get answers and dig deeper and so it's really much more self directed so we're trying to put our users in the position Of the user of Google maps. Rather than saying. We're GONNA teach you to be a London Black Cabbie so if I understand you correctly directly. You're saying that there already exists. A embarrassment of riches when it comes to ways as to learn to do something to learn to do something particular but not just ways to learn to do something ways to do something you know and I think that's an important distinction because in many ways you learn by doing and that's something that we've always been and been very much. The heart of who we are as a company you know back in the early days we were a documentation consulting company then we were a book publisher that we were a conference company online company. But all of what we were trying to do is say. Hey there's people who know how to do something and you want to do it too. So we're I'M GONNA show you how to do it and that sort of a slightly different emphasis when you come from documenting task ask than it is from when you're saying well you don't know anything about this so we're going to teach you to be a software developer and are you. Are you saying that the vision is now so you want to help people to understand how to explore the landscape and how to consider new things absolutely. That's always been part of it but you know if you think back ACTA. The early days of O'Reilly it. Was You know there were a few people with this new technology and very few people knew how to do it. Yeah we would serve learn it and we'd write it down and other people were kind of following along and it's still a lot that way but we built this mental model of what online learning is about which I think is has really been shaped too much by things like coding boot camps and people who don't want to don't know how to Code and we're GONNA teach them you know from from Ground Zero whereas an awful lot of the cutting edge of our industry is people who already know enough to get there. They know how to drive. You know they just. I don't know where they want to see how to get to a particular place that they want to go to..
