"I'm a Stanford CS major. I did find an engineer at Facebook. It's 2013, and here's the visual. Four Ernest guys are crammed onto a couch, practically sitting in each other's laps. There are a mix of undergrads and grad students at Stanford. Hey, I'm Andy. I'm also a Stanford CS major, and I did platform engineering at Facebook. This may sound like a college presentation, but it's actually a pitch for the chance to attract millions of dollars in investments. And I'm Tony, I was a product editor at square. These guys are trying to get into Y Combinator. That's the Harvard of Silicon Valley startup accelerators. It's where the most ambitious entrepreneurs go for early funding and coaching in return for a cut of their startups. Yeah, so it turns out restaurants and Palo Alto don't deliver even though they really wanted. This is Tony Shu. He's smiling, sort of nervously, and it kind of seems like he's reading rehearsed lines off of cue cards. But their consumers are craving for it, but the places that the consumers love just can't deliver. Tony is the guy they have lined up to fire off the fastball. And we also found out about these delivery drivers who had a ton of spare time and they all wanted an extra cash during that downtime. That's the pitch. Why not connect all those workers who apparently had a lot of free time with the restaurants Apollo alto that wanted to offer delivery. And that's what we're building at DoorDash. The video worked. Why combinator accepted Tony shoe in the guys into its exclusive program. And in a matter of just a few years, that company pitched from a couch near Stanford became a major player in the business of restaurant delivery. Now, the biggest meal delivery services in the United States are DoorDash, Uber eats, and Grubhub. Taken together, the companies that own those platforms are valued at more than a $130 billion. That's bigger than chipotle. Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, KFC, and the Olive Garden combined..
Devin Nunes Is Now the CEO of the Trump Media and Technology Group
"The left, the oligarchs of Palo Alto of tech valley said. Well, if you don't like Twitter, if you don't like Facebook, go and build something else. Well, guess what? President Trump, my former boss, your current boss said, okay, it is truth social my account is blowing up. I've got two, 3000 new followers every day at said go cron truth social super excited. If you look at engagement numbers, it's completely incomparable to Twitter. Let's talk about this sector that you're in charge of now for the Trump media and technology group. And the deal, it looks like somebody's going to try and clean up Twitter if he can, but now that we found out this deal from Elon Musk is stalled because of the question of fake accounts and bought accounts and that incredible news that seems to have sunk without a trace Devon last week, an independent corporation found that out of the 22 million followers on Biden's Twitter account half of them 11 million were bots. How is that possible? Well, look, it's kind of what I've been saying. And you know, I kind of walked into this, you know, I wrote about I wrote about this in my book countdown to socialism that I think we've talked about many times on your show. You were back in. I wrote the book and it was finished in July of 2020. And I was talking then in that book, essentially how you've got the fake news and then it funnels down into these social media tech tyrants and it's poisoning the American public. And that we were essentially, we had no ability to communicate. And at that point, I was one of the first members of Congress I was the first to go to go to rumble, which is a YouTube alternative. I also went to parler at the time before Bezos and the tech tyrants shut them down. So I watched what happened with just my engagement early on where I just, you know, boom, boom, boom, boom boom, just kept climbing and followers. So when president Trump, he didn't need a new company. I didn't need a new job. I was perfectly happy. Being in the Congress representing my constituents in California, but because of my knowledge of this and my concern for the American people, you know, I really had no option when Donald Trump asked me to do this job

"But I got him in there and made him do that. But he eventually qualified with the help of his mom and Keith Williams who kind of worked with the Fresno state compliance office and got him qualified for college football. So after putting up some pretty eye popping numbers during his sophomore season at Fresno state, Adams was then selected by the packers in the second round of the 2014 draft. But you wrote about how he really struggled during his first couple of seasons in the NFL. And there was one game in particular in 2015 against Chicago that you described as a quote tipping point for him. So what can you tell us about that game and what was going on with Adams around that time? Yeah, so in 2014, his rookie year, he wasn't getting targeted much, there was a stretch where he didn't have many targets. And then 2015 was the big thing. In week two, he sprained his ankle against the Seahawks, I believe it was. And then the next week, he tried to play through it, re aggravated the ankle injury, missed three games, and then came back and played the rest of the season really through some significant pain. And that Thanksgiving Day game, they played the bears in the night game on NBC. They lost 1713. Devonte had three or four drops in the aim he remembers. That's more than he has all of this season. He told me it was the worst game of his career still to this day. And a story his mom told was she had flown in from California to watch him play on Thanksgiving against the bears. And they're driving home back to devonte's house. We're in a car and he was like, driving and they was like football. I hate football. And I'm like, don't say that. No, you don't. Yes, I do. I don't know the fact they don't say that. It's going to be all right, but he was just so frustrated with being injured and playing and still have to play injured and not doing his best. Jordy Nelson, who is supposed to be the team's number one receiver, Torres ACL, that preseason. A 22 year old devonte Adams was kind of thrust into that number one role wasn't living up to expectations, mainly because he was playing through this bad ankle injury. And it starts all away on him. You have more followers now you're in the league so you got more people more eyes on you more opportunities to get their message out to you, how they feel about the way, you know, you and what you like. So just being young, not really understanding how to deal with that stuff. I was paying too much attention to it. They got back to his house after this outburst he had. And he took a shower, went in his room and didn't come out. And it was Thanksgiving, so his mom brought him a plate of food and kind of left him alone. And what he told me was, you know, essentially, this wasn't fun. Not a dark place, like, you know, that's being dramatic. But it was definitely like a sad time of my career. I wasn't so used to doing what I was doing in college, you know, going to sport literally two touchdowns again. You know, putting on my numbers, just having a great time. And his ability to get through that is a huge part of this story because he could have taken the path of other high draft pick wide receivers I'm speaking generally, but guys that turn out to be bus. They hit road bumps early in their career, and it kind of derails them. And since that 2016 season, until now, devonte Adams has 83 touchdown catches, which is significantly more than anybody else in the NFL. So how he was able to rebound from that disastrous 2015 season is really remarkable. Well, we obviously know that devonte Adams bounced back as you said with all those stats from those down years to become one of the best receivers in the NFL over the past 5 seasons. So Matt, when you step back and kind of look at the big picture, what is it about Devante Adams that allowed him to kind of overcome all the setbacks in the criticism to become the player he is today? Yeah, I go back to something James Jones told me who obviously shared a locker room with devonte in 2015 with the packers. That's the east Palo Alto in him. He made it out of the mud and he's Palo Alto is the phrase he used. So surviving that, I don't think that's too drastic of a way to put it, prepared him to make it through that adversity in the NFL and really making it through a bum ankle. It was nothing compared to being.

"I just refused for my kid to be another statistic. So when Devante would say, oh, I'm just going to go play outside. His mom would say, well, no, you're staying inside my house unless you have a specific destination you're going to. And I know it's a safe one, or if you're going to a football or basketball practice. We don't go outside without a destination, you know? Right. Because if you go outside to kick rocks, you're going to kick them one and took a window and this truck will start there. So now we don't do that. She worked multiple jobs so she could fund his sports and keep him busy in that regard. She would braid hair out of her own home and devonta would come home from school before she got home from her first job and keep her customers busy until she got home. He told me she's the epitome of illegalized hustler. That was my Superwoman. She had it a lot of stuff and was, like I said, the epitome of Austin would be so she kind of showed me what discipline and work is about. And it was funny she told me this didn't make the story, but she's been so invested in his football career that when he was at Fresno state in college, she would do her own scouting reports on the opposing cornerbacks for every team Fresno state would play and call him with her own scouting report and Devante would be like, mom, we have coaches for this. You don't have to call and tell me about what you think about the guys I'm going up against, but that's just how invested she's been in his career and she's been an integral part of how he's become who he is today. Well, something else that surprised me was learning that Devante Adams only started playing football as a junior at Palo Alto high. Why was that and how did the people you spoke with describe him as a player back then? Yes, so he broke his arm three separate times. That kind of straight him away from the physical nature of football. So he always knew he was good at football, but once he kind of got to that point where, okay, I'm kind of past the broken arms. Let's give football a try again. He started playing in 2009 his junior year at Palo Alto. And Earl Hansen, who's now retired, he was the Palo Alto head coach at the time, told me that Devante was as raw as can be. You know, he wasn't a polished route runner. He knew what he was supposed to do in the offense, but he didn't really understand how he fit into the bigger picture of the offense. It's funny because he wasn't even the number one wide receiver on his team as a junior. The number one wide receiver was Jack Peterson, who's now in Atlanta Braves outfielder. I asked him, who is a better wide receiver because jock's numbers were a little bit better than devonte's in 2009 when Jacques was a senior and Devante was a junior and laughed and said, I mean, the numbers don't lie. So how did he go from second best quarterback on his high school team to Fresno state? And can you tell us a little bit about what he had to do to actually become eligible to play at the college level? The big turning point was a coach named Keith Williams who is now the passing game coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens. He was the wide receiver's coach for Fresno state at the time. And he actually arrived at Palo Alto in 2010, so devonte senior year looking to recruit another wide receiver who eventually didn't pan out and Earl Hansen that had coach said, you know what, you might want to check out this other receiver I have. I know you're here to see another guy, but just check out this guy. So Keith Williams watched a full game of a very raw devonte Adams or more polished at that time and really liked what he saw. And so he kind of became devonte's father figure mentor and helped him along to be academically qualified. Devonte took 8 classes his senior year when everyone else in high school typically took forth. I had to be like Superman junior and same year because of the lackluster grades I had my first two years. It was a nightmare I had 8 classes while everybody has like four classes to see you here, so I'm running around, just hustling wouldn't take any more classes than what you can fit in the day. His mom signed him up for SAT classes on Saturdays, four hours. And she told me that devonte hated him throughout that whole time. We were not friends at this moment because every time he came around, I signed him up to take those SATs which, she knows a four hour Saturday, he stayed pissed off at me..

"Guy. But the thing is he's still getting open. Rogers on second down to the end zone Adams touchdown. You're watching greatness. That's just beautiful. And he's become, in his mind, at least, and in my own biased opinion as well, the best receiver in the NFL. Well, Matt, I think by now we've gotten used to devonte Adams being a star in the NFL, but that has not, in fact, always been the case. And you recently spoke with him and his mom about the pretty remarkable journey he has gone on to make it to where he is today. So let's rewind the clock for a minute. What can you tell us about where Adams grew up and some of the challenges he faced early in life? Yeah, so he grew up in east Palo Alto, California, and something that he made a point of telling me when we sat down two weeks ago was, you know, a lot of people think he means the east part of Palo Alto, Palo Alto, California, and east Palo Alto, California, two different cities. LO alto is where Stanford University is. It's where Tesla headquarters are. It's an extremely wealthy area. East Palo Alto is the exact opposite. Devonta used an analogy from The Lion King to kind of illustrate the differences. At least two different cities like proximity is close, but I like to compare it to like prime rock and Lion King and that was a regular smell. Not too far away. But it's too totally from world. He says Palo Alto is like pride rock. It's kind of like a symbol for triumph and the final destination of where you get after you've accomplished everything. East Palo Alto is kind of like the elephant graveyard because it's crime ridden, a lot of gangs, devonta had friends who were killed or ended up in jail. Everybody that was and he's falling off. I mean, you just felt Victor to what was happening there. A lot of turf gang touched stuff, just getting in trouble. So from the age of 5 until college, he split time between his mom's house in Menlo Park, California, which is nearby east Palo Alto, about ten minutes away, and his grandmother's house in east Palo Alto, and at his grandmother's house was his dad, his dad's girlfriend, aunts, cousins, he said about ten people including himself who lived there. He would sleep on a couch. He didn't even have his own room. So he was sleeping on a couch all through high school. Teenage boy, you know, brought into a man with literally just my room is, I don't know, but I'm not in there the same place people come in and they come sit down and to hang out with my grandparents or whatever my dad, they come and sit on my bed. At his mom's place, he had his own bedroom, he had his own bed, but it's kind of an interesting dynamic for a kid growing up to be splitting time back and forth, always on the move. And at one of those places for half of the time, not even really having his own bedroom. So despite spending time with both parents, it seemed to me like Adams and his mom are especially close. Yeah, an incredibly close relationship. Pamela Brown is her name. Her only child was devonte.

"The Green Bay Packers are at the top of the NFC once again, and a big reason why is the play of superstar whiteout Devante Adams. Third down Rogers throws going for the deep shot and delivers a strike to devonta Adams. But Adam's journey to the top had plenty of twists and turns along the way. Today, the athletics match schneidman tells us how Adams went from sleeping on a couch through high school. To NFL superstardom and why a brutal start to his NFL career almost derailed it all. He made it out of the mud and he's Palo Alto. So surviving that, I don't think that's too drastic of a way to put it, prepared him to make it through that adversity, the NFL. From wondering in the athletic, I'm Tiffany osinski. It's Wednesday, December 1st, and this is the lead. While Matt schneidman welcome back to the show. Appreciate you have me. You know, it feels like I might be the most recurring guest on this show just because the packers are in the news every single week, but I'm happy to be back on. Thanks for having me. Yeah, thanks for being here. I was going to say, you know, it feels like almost every time we've had you on the show, it's to talk about Aaron Rodgers. Does it feel strange to be on here talking about the best wide receiver instead? A little bit, yeah. I mean, last time I was talking about Aaron Rodgers vaccination status. So it's good to get back to football a little bit. Yeah, switch it up a little. I think it's a good thing to do that, especially during football season. Well, as I mentioned, we brought you on today to talk about packers wide out devonte Adams and his journey to the NFL. But before we get to that, can you just describe how dominant atoms has been for Green Bay this season? Yeah, I mean, it's really ever since the start of last season where he's cemented himself as the best receiver in the league. Right now he's second in the league in receiving yards and receiving yards per game. You know, he has an insane release off the line. He's a really good route runner. He's on first now with a lot of time Adams and wide open no one near him into Viking territory spun down inside the 40. He has impeccable hands. He can really do everything. He's not the fastest guy, but he makes up for that by being able to get himself open on any route. The outside and turning around and making the grab is Adams. He is unstoppable. Teams are doubling him a lot more, you know, they'll provide safety help before the snap after the snap. And teams have learned not to just guard him.
'Mr. Reagan' Creator Chris Kohls Describes the Pop Culture Success of 'Let's Go Brandon'
"Welcome back to one on one with mister Reagan. Let's turn Chris to because I want to get the sense from you a world that I don't understand. Let's talk a little bit about media. You have to be cautious. That's why you've created this alter egos and these fantasy stories you tell about certain elections on your YouTube channel. How are you doing, by the way? Are you being throttled are you being demonetized? How are the the Palo Alto big tech overlords treating mister Reagan? I do think some of some of the restrictions have been lifted recently, and I'm not really sure why. But I had this video about let's go brand and you know the let's go Brandon phenomenon. I decided to recap that because it was something that I started to see on Twitter and I follow this stuff kind of closely, so I kind of understood what it was pretty quickly. But I realized most Americans did not understand what let's go Brandon was. They didn't understand where it came from. They didn't understand all the phenomena that went along with it. And I said, okay, let me just do a comprehensive video about the let's go Brandon movement. And I did this video and it's up to, I think, almost 400,000 views now. So we're doing pretty good. Yeah, that one just really blew up. That was I think a lot of people were curious. Like, I don't understand this. Let's go Brandon thing. So my video, I think is the number one, let's go brand and video on YouTube. That's not like a music video. You know, there's all these songs that have come out. And then I was able to interview this guy, loser, Alexander, who you should have on your show by the way. Great guys. Yes, yes, yes, yes. His song went number one on iTunes, right? He had the song the hook is, you know what they say in hoe. That's the hook of the song. It's a great song. It's like it's very catchy. Most of America just fell in love with this song, and then Bryson gray came out with a song that got actually banned on YouTube because he mentioned COVID pandemic stuff. And so his song then went number one. We've had some on this show. He's great. He's great. He's a great guy. He's a great, but I think part of the success of his version was people thinking they were buying lows version and they bought his version instead. And so his so Lowe's is a little bit irritated. He's like, what is going on? I mean, they're both good songs. They're both good songs, or like I can say anything bad about either of them, but so I got loser on the show and because he's out here in LA. And he's a really good guy. You know, he's a strong Christian. He's a good guy. And strong conservative Trump supporter and just really cool song and a lot of fun. Anyway, so some of my videos have been doing pretty well. Others struggle a little bit, but then, you know, they're not all

Obviously these long long-term goals are based on things that you can be made billings of ten billion revenues of eight billion. Can you give us an overview about how you came to this long term guys. Well jimmy about an ear ago. When we were all set of in the midst of a pandemic trying to figure out where things we're going to end up. I think is abundantly clear that the despite the bat impacts pandemic. We've all learned how to live with it and the same time. We've seen an acceleration of technology adoption. It's across the board. You see that in south company. Just see that in streaming businesses. You see that delivery businesses and. I don't think there's any turning back from here what that has done. It has increased reliance technology. It's increased momentum off the digital transformation at the same time if you add to that that the cyber hackers are beginning to pay attention to all this technology that's been deployed or beginning to see that every company needs to make sure that they're secure. So there's there's a huge deal went in terms of the of erna cybersecurity and the need to be more security aware as a company and from that perspective it gives us great comfort. That all the work we've been doing for the last three years building up platform around network security which kind of anticipated this need to move to the cloud building our platform around cloud security. It's all about predicting application in the cloud and really dropping more and more artificial intelligence and machine learning and our cortex platforms because security needs to be instantaneous. It needs to be now. It's kinda like you know along autonomous car. We need to get on security so we're not spending days months and years trying to figure out how that happened. It needs to happen right. That instant speaking happen. What said instant i got hacked recently and the only thing that i did was add a smart tv. There was nothing i checked everything. Everything and everything okay. I now read the. Oh kyo apodictic announcement. Which i'm demanded okay. And i now realize that i was probably hat because i put in a smart tv of which i had no protection on and was saying things that i have been hurt by others. I managed to get some of the things recalled that allegedly bought. But if i had. Oh kill this new product. I don't think would have happened. There's a funny story jim. I got hacked so years ago before i joined politics networks in i was paranoid looking at my infrastructure and i started doing some research and i realized seventy five percent of the people out. There don't know their wifi router password. You don't even know it. Forget about big judas protected. You don't even know it. There are people use genetic passwords. You can go hack them as easily as you can hack anything in the world. And that led us to have this conversation at bala network saying what's the next bastion of cyber security. If you secure enterprises where do i go. Guess what now hispanic bruin that we have to work from home and home has become your work while your home is a lot easier to hack than the enterprise so the attack attackers are going to move to the point of leasers which is people's home so we're delighted to have built this product from the ground up but security i in mind okay. Guard the whole principle of this product is to be deployed at. Your home is going to protect your work. When you're interacting with your work and protect your home. I won't make sure that nobody can see me just as data so people don't see what's going on in house you at your home cannot see what's going on work run through secure sub nets in your home and you'll be able to be more protected as you work at home and with the proliferation of things like smart. Tv smart. Refrigerators doorbells alarms. That all be connected. Internet expanding the digital connectivity at home and none of that stuff is designed for security. Just yet i heard about this. I thought it was enterprise ended. I'd have to get it through the enterprise but you're offering a price point hundred forty eight bucks naked so that it's pretty clear. This is for home. I but we'll help you at work. Why price it the way you did. Well as jim. There's three versions of this or three ways you can use it. You can use it as an enterprise extension so i. I use my home for work very often there. I can have okay guard. Protect me while. I'm doing but also work at the same time you know. I have heard you talk about restaurants and my wife has a restaurant too. And i look at them. They'd older technology they're using open table. Door dash the up. They have no idea about the security. What's going on from a technology perspective in at a restaurant and gone to ford. It people to make that happen. So they can deploy one of these is gonna protect the seven by twenty four support service but smb's they can deploy or you can go on the internet dot com and order one for ourselves at our home. So we've priced it in a way. It can satisfy each of those conditions in each of those use cases. Well i think right. Now i have a. I have a personal subscription. It just helps me against now where it is nowhere in years as complicated. It isn't smart enough. As i guess. But i would say now along. This is not complicated. You can use it off off your phone. It's going to be a simple consumer app saying. Make me very secure secure may be somewhat security. You can choose well. I realized that i didn't know any of this. I figured that i was safe at home. I figured who what what crock what cyberthief would attack being home. They attacked you office. And then i realized that i have everything home that i have at the office. I completely switched in work from home. So i need this. Everybody needs everybody who works from home. Needs a great innovation now. These analysts they also are happy that when you when you came in they said chin get away from the oil wants to do his eminent. Okay well turns out you did the it was the greatest thing you could possibly do now. Finally they're saying hey it's great with them and they did they not realize that before you were emanate. You were on prim and now you've got the end end. Solution takes seven years to build amazing products in any company where their consumer technology or enterprise technology. We didn't think we had four or five to seven years to build everything that were needed so we went around and found some of the best companies in the world and we were fortunate enough. They'd decided to come be part of pilot networks and we had a very strong integration playbook with these companies so we've been in very very high invest more the last year's which allowed us to build these amazing platforms and be right for the market. Now that we have built these amazing products our job is to make sure you deploy them across our entire customer base. That's what we're going to be doing for the next year. So we don't need to go out and buy more companies because we have ample product in our portfolio and to be honest looking at evaluations. It's impossible for us to go. Acquire some of these high flying security startup. so we're very comfortable that we're gonna go continue to build products internally and deployed them to our customers. We both sixty five products in the last three years of really acquired eleven to thirteen. So it's not like we haven't been innovating and now our job is to execute. Go out there and make sure we keep the point historic customers and in the process expand operating margins by one hundred basis points fifty two hundred and expanded free gessler mars getting to thirty five percent and twenty twenty four. Now i yell. Apple says it's the fort knox of its of its complex. Can we start thinking of if you hire at any level bring palo alto in you created a on prem to cloud to home fort knox loose. Well we have you know. We had a phenomenal presentation by our founder near zuck and also by internal soccer team. But i came to office we to get sixty seven thousand dollars a week. We're down to.
Who Are Ransomware Gangs Targeting?
"Which organizations are ransomware gangs looking to target. According to israeli cyber security firm kayla they primarily want firms based in the us canada. Australia and europe who on average earn more than one hundred million dollars in annual revenue and are not in the education health. Care government or nonprofit sectors. That's according to an analysis of forty five conversation threads on criminal forums. these forums are where initial access brokers claim to have hijacked into a company and are now selling that access to ransomware groups. Attackers are looking to buy specific types of access to victims so it and security administrators should pay attention to this. Highly desirable are companies. That have vulnerabilities in their microsoft remote. Desktop protocol set up which is used my employees for remote access as well as those with vulnerable virtual private networks setups using products from six palo. Alto networks vm-ware fortinet and cisco systems now in the last several months all of these products have issued patches for vulnerabilities. So you shouldn't be caught off guard for such access. Ransomware attackers are willing to pay up to one hundred thousand dollars and remember if your company earns less than a hundred million dollars a year. Don't be complacent. That's an average of the requirements of some attackers and only for messages seen during a narrow timeframe
Guy Armstrong on Illuminating Emptiness
"And guy i wanted to thank you for joining us and welcome. You will thank you very much for having me that happy to be here with your love talking about this topic and all the other dharma that i know you and i might share wonderful and so i thought you know you've had a long history with the insight tradition and i was wondering how you You know. I got into practicing in that tradition. Well it's kind of a long story. I started off reading about buddhism. And i bought my first book on buddhism when i was sixteen years old i knew nothing about it. I was in the middle of the country growing up in a suburb of missouri. And for some reason. I picked up this book in a bookstore called the way of sam. I alan watts. I didn't read it right away. But when i got into college in all these kind of new ideas were floating through the counterculture and i got interested in started reading what i could find and mostly at that time it was about Zan by alan watts of dt suzuki. So i did a lot of reading but unfortunately nobody told me. I needed to meditate and so it was all conceptual and intellectual or mid that point but it did it did establish from me a real interest in asia A strong poll. Jj from from that time. and so. After i graduated from college. I went into the peace corps in malaysia which was right next door to thailand so when i visited thailand i really felt a good connection i felt at home and then when i got back to the states settled in palo alto and i met a meditation teacher who was a student of the tide teacher. Dear bamba who not a lot of people have heard about but she was teaching for pasta in nineteen seventy four in palo alto so i became interested in. That's where i got my start in. Actually sitting down and meditating
Tesla Teases AI Day and Partnership With Famed Roboticist
"Let's talk about this news on. Ai day overnight. We got this tweet from dr dennis. Hong who is a professor at ucla and the founding director of their robotics and mechanisms laboratory. Anyway he tweeted out. This photo of some beautifully rendered computer hardware. Sang tusla a day. August nineteen twenty twenty one at palo alto california five. Pm pd so we had a date now. Looks like we also have a time and a location for ai. And we're left to speculate on what this hardware is and why dr hung is tweeting this out. Dr hong certainly enjoyed stirring up that speculation. He's got a number of tweets. Replies here as well as likes on other tweets that have encouraged speculation. I would say one of his first replies since that original tweet was to question asking if the ucla lab was now associated with tesla and fasd. Aung san can't say anything just yet with a couple of playful emojis at it. Of course we've seen tesla partner with academic labs in the past for research. Great example of that on the battery fronts being with jeff. Don somebody brought that arrangement up and reply and harm replied to that saying dot dot dot or something else dot dot dot blowing a kiss emoji if we dig back a little bit further we can actually see that this tweet that does have this photo rendered in. It isn't the first time he's talked about his involvement with tesla. It does go back a few days prior. So i found this tweet from july twenty ninth and it's in korean but it doesn't include another post from hong. I believe on a different social media platform. That's also in korean. So i translated the immature. But you can see hong talking about the secret project that he's involved in with tesla. Apparently there was supposed to be an announcement scheduled for the twelfth of august and that he's finding out via twitter that it's delayed till the nineteenth referencing eons tweet where he announced the date for at
A Look at Farallon Industries
"Couple of months ago. I told you about a guy who dropped off some vintage scuba quip at the shop. One of the regulators was an old poseidon cyclone and that spurred me to segment on poseidon here on the show. I also mentioned that the cyclone was complete with a set of farallon gauges and that there were a pair of farah line fins that were unfortunately torn so they got me thinking about doing some additional research on fairlon and doing a segment here on the show. I gotta tell you. Researching on industries was a bit of a challenge. It was difficult for me to piece the information together. So some of this may be a little bit out of sequence. Let's start at the beginning. Or what i think is the beginning from my research. I believe it was somewhere around. Nineteen sixty nine. That guy named ralph osterhaudt was working on a diver propulsion vehicle or dp that he called the mark one. It seems that this was pretty successful. Product and the us navy decided to purchase two dp marquand from ralph and it appears that that's when he started foulon industries. Farallon is the name of a small group of islands about twenty six miles due west of san francisco. I wasn't familiar with the farallon islands but found out some interesting stuff about them from what i read. They were originally called the islands of the dead by native americans and then given the name farallon meaning cliffs by the spanish. I'm not exactly sure. Why ralph named is company farallon industries. Farallon was based in belmont california which is between san francisco in palo alto on the san francisco bay side. The address was listed as one three three three old country road. But when i google map data address it came up with one three three three county road now. I like to take a look at the street view at these locations to see what it looks like today and today one three three three county road in belmont california looks like a self storage facility. One of the ways that i researched founded on industries was to look back at old trademark registrations impacts when registering a trademark or patent near sometimes a description of the business on one of those registrations the businesses described as as a california corporation producing goods and services for skin and scuba divers equipment namely self-propelled vehicles for transporting scuba divers. Interestingly i saw a fair aligned dp up for auction just yesterday. I think one of their most famous patents was also in early one. It looks like it was around seventy one and that was the shock dart famous because of its uses a prop in nineteen seventy five blockbuster draws the shark dart is described in the patent as a compressed gas injector weapon including parts. Therefore you may also see these come up for auction from time to time and complete rig gets pretty pretty expensive now. There were a whole lot of patent issued to caroline industries in the nineteen seventies. It looks like it looks like there was another row involved with foulon who is also inventor and that was ralph sham champion in an old article that i read who's identified as the president of farah line industries and was listed on a number of different patents. So let's take a look at some of these products in one thousand nine hundred seventy four. It looks like they submitted a patent for a decompression indicating instrument and it said it was an analog computer then in one thousand nine hundred seventy five. They produced a pressure gauge and started to design fins over time. They introduced the farah thin the fahrenheit which was a rechargeable hand-held light and then in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight farallon industries was issued a patent for a pilot regulator that said it incorporated a novel valve assembly in the second stage in the form of a unique main diaphragm valve and a pilot valve assembly. Now i did try to trace. What actually happened to farrell on. There's some indication that it was acquired by a company called tacna. But if you look on the oceanic website they say that. Bob hollis took a big step forward with oceanic when he acquired foulon industries around nineteen seventy six giving oceanic full line of scuba equipment with an innovative line of instrumentation products. I'm not exactly sure when oceanic stop branding their products with the farallon logo. I did find a price list and catalog. from nineteen seventy eight. They're still showed a lot of the farallon. Products including their low profile pragmatic mask their patented molded mouthpiece swim snorkel. The farah light farah fins and all their instrumentation they were also still producing four versions of their diver propulsion vehicle. The mark to the mark sri mark for mark five. Interestingly in that cadillac. I did see that. Both the farallon. An oceanic logos were shown together. And oh by the way you could still get the shark dot and he came in two flavors the magnum supreme in the magnum super. Well i knew. When i started this research on farallon line industries that would be a little more challenging than some of the other companies that i've researched farah line. Industries wasn't around very long but it looks like they did some really interesting

Meet the Brain Behind Facebook's Oversight Board
"I want to tell you a story about a friend and a colleague of mine. His name is noah feldman one afternoon. Back in twenty. Eighteen noah was taking a bike ride in the hills around palo alto california. He was visiting from the east coast. The bike ride was a little break from seeing friends. And doing is meetings. But no is not your average mountain biker. He's a constitutional law professor at harvard and one of the country's best he even helped to draft iraq's interim constitution so as no was cranking around the hills of old honda road he was thinking about a company with its headquarters nearby. Maybe you can guess. He was thinking about facebook. I happen to be staying with my friend. Sheryl sandberg who. I went to college with her. And she's the co or facebook but not for anything to do with facebook. I was just out there and it was nice to see her. No was thinking a lot about the relationship between his field constitutional law and the struggle that platforms have keeping people safe online. Think about the social media companies the more they grow the more content their users post not all the content is going to be so nice and friendly and when you get more content. You're bound to get more hateful speech as well. It's just really hard to keep all the bad stuff off the platforms. It's always an uphill battle for these social media companies and not unlike the uphill battle that noah found himself on during his bike that it was much too hard for me. And i had that you know oxygen deprivation field that you get when you're trying to climb hills too hard for you and i was sort of in my mind and one part of that was trying to figure out how the social media companies were themselves dealing with the challenges. A free speech. It's not the question of how governments were dealing with them and free speech but how they were thinking about it internally no hyperventilating about to give and sure enough it worked and i had an idea and the idea that came into my mind was that facebook content moderation supreme court all day. Oh yea whoa. I wrote it up in a you know twelve or thirteen hundred word document. I thought maybe i can publish. It isn't bad and showed it to charlotte because she was my host and she said to me. Actually you know what before you go and publish this. Let me send it to mark and see what he thinks about it as it turned out facebook. Ceo mark sanford love. Noah's idea others were not so sure could affor- profit company bill. They court many people in an outside facebook dot. The whole idea was more than a little crazy. One of those people was knee.
Sea Level Rise a Major Threat to San Francisco
"All over the bay Area by 2050 In less than 30 years. Projections show floodwaters swamping bridges, infrastructure and entire neighborhoods. KQED science reporter Kevin Starke has been following this story as part of the Pulitzer Centers nationwide. Connected Coastlines Reporting Initiative and Kevin East Palo Alto specifically, is one community really susceptible to sea level rise in the Bay Area. How much of a threat is this? Well, already Half of the city lies in a federal flood zone. It's bound by water on three sides, the Bay and the San Francis Skeeto Creek. And it's located in the South Bay, where tides of the highest during bad storms the city already regularly experience is flooding. The average high tide in the bay is going in one direction. It's up. Scientific projections show up to a couple feet of sea level rise by mid century, and then the rate of rise could dramatically increase beyond that, so this is truly an existential threat for the community and his power out there. Great and this isn't just about sea level rise right? There are larger social forces at play here, too. Absolutely. The community is roughly two thirds Latino, has a sizable population from the Pacific Islands. In fact, we interviewed people who emigrated to East Palo Alto from places like Samoa and Tonga, in part to get away from flooding and climate change on the islands on me to find that it is an issue here along the bay, so the effects of climate change disproportionately impact communities like East Palo Alto. Many people in the community that we spoke with talk about the cost of housing. There's been a lot of pressure. There is Facebook and Google and other big companies have built campuses nearby. Yet East Palo Alto is this

"Pratique joshi. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks dan to be here. Thank you for having me. Well it's great to have you here my friend. Hey before we get started. I was wondering if you could tell our audience about pluto. Shift what is it. And what is your parole in the company. I'm that the joshi on the ceo. Ludo shift and We are headquartered in palo alto california and pluto shift is an operational data platform. But it means is. It's a tool to monitor physical infrastructure. And it's built for companies that make the guts like food and beverage and chemicals manufacturing so on and so forth so we held them. Keep an eye on it by using the data that already collecting so a lot of what you do revolves around artificial intelligence. Is that correct. That is correct. yes. I'm wondering if you could share with us for those that don't know what artificial intelligence or a is how you would define that and beyond that. How do you contrast it with machine. Learning to me is the ability of a machine to perform tasks that require human intelligence is a state of existence and the system and make decisions on itself now. How those decisions are made that many different frame with to do that. But at the core of its an ability that we can instill into a machine by providing a framework on how a decision gets made.
Google's Kent Walker on Ethical AI
"Kill walker. I oversee a global affairs group and cool that includes policy legal. Our trust and safety work are philanthropy and are responsible innovation teams. I've been working in the technology sector for quite some time actually grew up palo alto at a time when silicon valley was just coming into being as a as a phrase and it's been fascinating to see the growth and development of technology and how intersecting all across our societies ever since and part of your work then at google is overseeing the ai principles document. I presume and then the implementation of those principles within google. That's right we've been working on the yeah principles for some time. It may actually be helpful to go a little bit of a a history starting in maybe twenty sixteen. It was clear that hey i was going to be bigger. And bigger part of our product portfolio. Google translate just to take one example went from having a translation of say a six year old which was helpful in that grade to having the translation ability of a teenager. Not perfect but pretty. Good through the application of ai. Over the course of a summer and that kind of remarkable improvement in performance really started down the path of saying not only yet what are other applications. We could be exploring but at the same time. What are the implications of doing that. How do we make sure we drive the technology for it but we drive the thinking around ethics and how and when these new tools should be used so that was a big part of our effort. I think starting in two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen. We were plenty other people. From across the company anti-people historians ethicists etcetera to start to creamer framework. As to how we think about this
Zero Trust: Fast Forward from 2010 to 2021
"Our guest today and greece pay attention. This is important is junkin the rug at onto it formerly at forrester fame and palo alto networks who was the first to define the concept of zero trust in two thousand ten. Think about it. Two thousand ten eleven years ago paper so we have a few questions mostly focuses their trust. And of course it's past and the future so let's start from a somewhat painful but necessary question. Let's defines zero. Trust perhaps contrast how you define it then and how you think about it today. So zero hasn't changed right. It was still a fight against the old trust model. Where we had trusted parts of the network and untrusted parts of the network as we would see implemented in say an old cisco pix and so you had to define policy based upon a trust level so the internal interface of a picks was trust level. One hundred the highest level and the external interface was trust level zero the lowest trust levels. So you could go from a high too low trust level without any policy and i thought having that variable is painful and it means that. There's no album rules and it's highly insecure and we allow people to have access because of this trust model and so trust is just a human emotion that we've injected into digital systems for no reason at all and people confuse all the time human trust digital trust. I mean going back to nineteen eighty-four can thompson who we all know is the co creator of unix in his turing award speech. That year talked about the problem trusting. Trust so trust is something that shouldn't be in digital systems and that was the main thesis of the report and then it led to. How do you build systems like that. But mostly it was about thinking that this concept of trust actually incentivized bad behavior because all data breaches and almost all negative security events. That have ever happened. The root cause is the trust model. You'd think it was a spam email but it exploited the trust me think it was ransomware it exploited the trust model snowden and manning were insider attacks who exploited the trust model. So that was my fight. And then it's led to a lot more stuff.
Palo Alto Networks' 2021 Ransomware Threat Report Indicates a Ransomware Demands Surge
"We're going to be getting into the palo alto networks ransomware threat report. Twenty twenty one and you'll devos president regional chief security opposite the i pay giants head that role. Sometimes i have. I was thinking alia So yeah thanks for joining again having this talk history. Some of the k. Phonics was when i was running up the nights it's Pretty impressive Intensive some of the payments. I will deal with what the bank paying and what they're making. I think we're in the wrong business but Maybe they will talk about how companies should be dealing with this because it sounds like companies have been dipping their hands in their pockets tying ransomware. Yeah in ranson. Look think i think from the beginning of this survey you'd really hang around if there is no money to be might actually bandies. Brass was actually quite lucrative has been quite literally footing for a number of us and people have been pike. I think that's the the last year specifically ran sort of cut not injuring himself. What we saw was the average mass pike by organization has dramatically increase. Two thousand nine saint louis sitting somewhere in the order of about fifty thousand. Us dollars was typically so the ransom in twenty twenty s nelson going out to three hundred thousand dollars Hundred and seventy one percent year on year growth just simply from the ransomware itself the rest payments obviously with within organizations insensitive. The rats in this thing paid for generations vessels the double from five minutes. And you're making some instances where the mice rats were example. We looked amazing. Twenty twenty actually averaging somewhere around the four point eight million dollars just to the rest where threat. The questionable of the survey making people the hesitant. Pike i don't see why for a second. The people are not paying. Because there's no reason why the ransomware would be going over and things would be going out out. Why was seeing normal ransom with resurrection. So puppy up.

"palo alto" Discussed on Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!
"Like scrambled eggs and Bacon. Absolutely that's right. Tell us. I and my hero for you you are my hero see I make sure this crazy wherever I go and I have I haven't mentioned it in a long time. So I'm glad we're bringing it up now but I have tried to instruct my audiences on radio on television online at public appearances in my writing. A menu is a suggestion if you if you look on the menu and you've just come off I, give you example we had just come off a week on a very fancy art ship. And had pretty much eaten ourselves under the table and the ship docked at eight o'clock at night, and we walked across the street in Puerto Rico in San Juan. We walks across the street from the port and checked into the hotel right there, and there was an Italian restaurant that was part of the hotel and the only restaurant and I could not a ten o'clock at night after eight days on this show nine days on this ship. SIT DOWN TO PASTA and veal Parmesan Spaghetti or something. So I looked at the waiter and I said. Could you go in the kitchen i. see you have Spaghetti Carbonara he said, yes. I said that means you have eggs and it means you have bacon he said, yes those are part of the ingredients I said would you go in the kitchen tell the chef there's a lunatic woman in the dining room. And all she wants scrambled eggs and Bacon. So. You blame it on me so he doesn't Yell at you. But. He said, I wouldn't know how charge you I said what's the most expensive thing on your menu? And I think he said steak pc solo or something like that. I said fine. You charge me for that but I want scrambled eggs and Bacon. And some and some Italian bread and butter and I'll be fine and I have to tell you I told this story to chef named Andrew Campbell who's now in back in in the in the UK But I met him, he was the executive chef at the West End. Zone Westerner the W I think it was the western Tokyo and when I told him the story artist God got tears in his eyes and said to me, Stephanie, that's what hospitality is. That's what it is.

And it's called the Clement. And the family that is engaged in this. Hotel Management Group has acquired a number of hotels many of them branded with some of the most popular brands in the hotel industry. but this hotel, the Clement is an independent property which made it a perfect fit. Because A it's independent and be because of the unique and charming offering that it is. So, that they rose to the level of being meeting the criteria and the expectations of being a member of preferred hotels, which you can check out at preferred hotels DOT com. And I thought you know what time to be opening a brand new hotel. I think you know it's time for us to pay some attention especially as we're about to launch a a weekly series on stay in play USA and so. Like you to give some thought about. Traveling without having to worry about crossing an ocean being in a plane for. Seven to nineteen hours depending on where you're going.

Palo Alto is about forty miles south of San Francisco between San Francisco and San Jose, and we're right at the entrance to Stanford University. So we have a fabulous university and really gorgeous gorgeous weather and Palo Alto is the the birthplace of Silicon Valley, David Packard and Williams. Hewlett foundered Hewlett Packard in the late forties and the garage in Palo Alto. Yahoo and Google both sprang out of Stanford University. So it's a real high. Tech Center. And a center for Education Research, as well as a just a beautiful part of the country Stanford. Itself has eight thousand acres of land of which most of it is undeveloped and I think about a thousand acres actually are dedicated to a biological reserve, the Jasper Ridge Biological Reserve, and as part of the lovely foothills Right next to the academic portion of Stanford University so.

If you don't mind that will keep me from calling you eleanor. Which is my wife's name which I have to look at your name three times every time to not say. Eleanor de Delgado. And I I apologize because I'll probably do that so Josh go ahead. You start out and I'll join in certain things so What does your organization do to help animals in the local communities? Yes well we have a special role in the local communities since we do not run a shelter. We do a lot of other stuff We actually serve as a hotline for people calling in. They think that we have a shelter. We point them to shelters rescue groups. We give them advice when we and and one of the our most important roles in the local community on the Mid Peninsula here is our our veterinary programs We help people who are low income when their pets are ill. We help rescuers with our animal rescue fund to take them to the vet. We also have a spay neuter fund that we use to help local animals who are Bandon who needs to be stayed and neutered before they can go out to adoption and speaking of that hotline. What is the top frequently asked question that is received on that it's about cat? We were very active Years ago and we still are in the cat rescue community and it's always about people. It's nearly always about people finding kittens outside. What can they do to help? We point them to shelters and rescue groups and with that in mind since you mentioned cats how are Cats doing in the low in the local shelters within your area like is there an abundance. Or what's going on there if you know? Open shelters all they. Most of the cats are out in Foster programs there's been a large response to Call outs for fosters. And they're they're doing they're doing well in foster program and What are Stoesz more about these foster programs? Are they temporary homes for these kittens? Or what is what happens until they can be returned to shelter or rescue group. Were they are adopted out In addition to Helping cats and dogs and other animals We're running a campaign called creating compassionate communities and this is the way in which we not only Give our attention to veterinary issues but also to educational issues and Tell us more about some of these educational issues or programs that you offer within the Palo Alto humane society. Okay We started out. We're actually pretty pretty old. We started out in nineteen eight as an advocacy group Addressing issues around the welfare of animals on the community at that on the peninsula at that time The Palo Alto. Police were actually shooting. Stray dogs. Horses were going thirsty and our group address these issues. We advocated for functioning. Animal shelter was built by US and run by US until nineteen seventy and that at that point it was taken over by the city of Palo Alto so What we do now is basically focused on advocacy and our Veterinary programs that I mentioned and education Do you want to speak a little bit? More about the educational programs are advocacy absolutely and feel free to also mention in addition to these Any of the other ways in which your organization addresses community outreach. Okay sure yeah In a few years ago in the nineties we created we help create the California Coalition for homeless cats which fought against all kinds of negative legislation that supported euthanasia we propose a trap neuter return popularly known as TNN and that's now taken root in the country and has become one of the main ways and the best way to deal with homeless cat populations We also advocated for the local shelter to keep it open when the city of Palo Alto threatened to close it and twenty twelve and we've always advocated for and supported good legislation and public policy such as prop to And other actions that we've taken. We introduced with local legislator Kevin Mullin a statewide proposition linking character education with humane education for all schools in the state in the state of California and our basic thrust. Now excuse me is education. We want young people to become ambassadors of compassion. So we look for different ways in which we can engage them in our programs. And if it's okay with you I'd like to mention a couple of these programs. Go ahead okay. Sure What we're doing right now is we're sponsoring a story writing contest for seventh and eighth graders in the local counties of Santa Clara and some fail and we had our first contests last year. We Awarded a wonderful writer. Vanden a Ravi The award for her Wonderful story about donkeys. We expanded her story into a book that includes information about donkeys and history Rescue of donkeys local donkey organizations.

Www Dot Palo alto humane dot org Our contest this year has been expanded. extended to the end of April. Because of the current Kovic Nineteenth Situation We've also reached out to different groups in the community at at the school level We developed a middle school program. That were worked with animal advocacy clubs on the peninsula We have we partner with Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority in a Special Program called Kitties K I D D I e s number two kitty cats and kittens. Yeah and this started out and it still is a reading program. It's a shelter based reading program where kids of all ages come and read to the cats and when they start reading to cats and kittens the they re quietly the cats and kittens come up to them and then they begin the process of socialization with these cats and kittens. These are all adoptable cats and kittens. Some are more shy than others. And we've had some wonderful wonderful successes Cats and kittens have overcome their. You know being frightened of people they've Been adopted Some of our volunteers in this program have become fosters We give Community service time for high school students involved in the program We also visit classrooms and after school programs with a tailoring our interaction with them to their needs so if they want to learn more about dogs we have A large contingency of what we call our dog teams and they go out to the schools to scouts to after school clubs community service clubs and interact with the participants at the same time. The participants are learning about good ways to take care of dogs. We do the same with with cats We also have an online program and we'd like to encourage teachers to look at the program.

Often here locally. So would you be able to tell us more about that shelter shutdown threat of two thousand twelve We were part of a coalition of groups that Spoke out to keep this shelter open and as a result of our activities and our At one point we had people out there with their dogs and horns were honking. They went by City Council. We had students come up and see Animal Control officers and just members of the Community. Saying how important it was or Paolo. Alto and the local communities surrounding to have its own shelter. That's very important low AD. That's an amazing insight on that whole story like I'm glad it ended up. Actually having a happy ending was it. Do you happen to know why the City Council thought that was a logical move. At first. They wanted to save money by By finding another group to run the shelter so yeah drip ways to cut the budget essentially with the budgetary issue. Awesome well Thank you so much leaner.

"In downtown Palo alto it gets my heart and he began comparing Facebook to to Google and the next kind of big platform on the internet and I remember thing myself great and how much with possible and but at the same time feeling like because those field goals because the goal and it had been shifting so often why not you know what I mean maybe and it will but even in even at that moment throughout that period it was hard for me to understand why I just didn't feel it as much as he or as much as many of the other employees because in theory you know it was it was an immense opportunity there was there were so many people are signing up there was it was so exciting for for him at least it was it was a mission you know the idea of connecting people to one another was good in and of itself right and I could understand that and at the time on I leaned in that direction and agreed with that but I also was a bit skeptical of of the idea that connection and alone was necessarily going to transform the world I did the the the the the missionary bent to it it sounded and some a little bit too much like a lot of the very religious people that I grew up with who could we're almost blinded by by a face so much she couldn't think about some of the problematic effects of religion or anything anything else so so I stayed as I talk about in the work for for three years and then went on to something I did feel a mission and which is was to work for then senator Obama I'm saying just in those early years at Facebook for another minute I would you know part of what your work now has been about is grappling with the ethics of what you helped create right and so it made me wonder I mean you know I try to think of myself at like nineteen and twenty and twenty one and what what my ethical quandaries where it's like did you guys have moments as a crew where you would sort of pause and be like all right we ARE creek is is this thing is as big as it feels like it's going to be are we pausing to ask ethical questions along the way or was it just you know hit the next mark no yeah and that that that that was a problem yeah and well I think that they're grappling with that more I do diverge on a whole host of places where he in the Facebook leadership team have landed as I've been public about but there were there there wasn't a lot of of talk about the the ethical implications I mean it's so easy to highlight the positive stories but you naturally you know gravitate away from the negative ones I'm their customer service features they were priced some privacy issues there some safety issues in those things began to be built and built and over time so there was awareness of the fact that the the platform could be used and I negative or destructive way but no there there was a there was a face that on balance this was going to be good for the world yeah we will return to that I wanna go to your your role in the bombing campaign and you were one of the people who sort of created the whole digital strategy and you write about the book which I thought was really interesting that people largely track that up to here's this Facebook guy he knows tack he figured out how to great technological solutions campaigning when in fact what you felt like was really different about what you did had little to do with tech and much more to do with something else can talk a little bit about what you're most proud of around that work yeah the tech in the two thousand eight campaign was not anything particular error when he slick let's say I mean the it was it was helpful to have some tools that have been built the remnants out of the dean campaign in two thousand four company called blue state digital it build some built some tools that the Obama campaign with able to contract and and by Sir the tech was helpful and we were able to do things the because of the tech but the real magic of that era was the fact that we had a candidate who asked people to believe again and to combat the cynicism that was pervasive then I think it's gotten even worse now and then when he asked people to believe again there was an opportunity to then say okay I can do something and to for people to raise their hand certainly give some money of course but also to go and say actually you know organized event on Saturday and our role as online organizer's was yes to build the tool to make it easy to like set a time and recruit people to come the authors say will we can do it the event to the agenda and how we gonna make sure that that work is actually gonna help elect Obama as president so you know instead of just talking about how great he is let's talk about who our friends who we can recruit the door so we can come knock on the of phone calls that we can make in a local field office that kind of infrastructure building and because that primary was so extended between between Obama and Hillary Clinton what it meant is that as the state's came became increasingly important in each state there was a there was a an infrastructure grassroots infrastructure that had been at work largely through digital connections for months if not for years and so Obama kept winning in the states like Idaho and Oklahoma and the and unexpected places for particular for a black American like a bomb to be winning with these big margins and I think a piece of that was the fact that we have the technology to head enable people to self organize for quite some time yeah and but the much bigger force obviously was the candidate who is asking them to believe again in the first place and did you have any mentorship in organizing like how did you make that leap from Facebook to as a campaign like that we had a great set of organizer's on that campaign Buffy wicks who's now in the an elected here in the bay area it was one of the field leaders they were leaders in each of the states who were focused on and and so there was that there was a big there's a big network I'm trying to learn as quickly as I could portion we along primary certain February of seven of two thousand seven and the first first caucus I think with a full year later so that that was helpful there sometimes but the plane together at least a little bit before it started on the runway do you remember your first time seeing Brack Obama speak and like being aware of him as a candidate the first time I think I met him in the Chicago office for the first time I had seen him give speeches on television and digitally and read his books but I met him for the first time in the office but but I think that's I don't know I had gone to rally it's a little like as I'm asking like I feel like there's a little bit of a forest Gump quality to your life because it's like you like in counter mark Zuckerberg at Harvard and then you're encountering Brock about in Chicago and it's like you're really one of the like major moments of our I don't know if you want to get there but this is a big part of what I talk about the book this is also a problem for me because I had because Facebook was such a breakout success and then obviously the Obama campaign not just one but we wanted a certain kind of way where technology was critical to it I I got very convinced that I could like you know what's next I can you know I felt like I had the midas touch yeah I was totally wrong about I had I had done some smart things but I have gotten very lucky in in multiple moments in my life and so some of that does experience though problematically turned in to hubris which you know let's all kinds of failures in the in the period well let's hear that so then you get a great exactly let's go to the good learning really important part of not just your story but every you know twenty something year old story of of you know coming up against your own limitations and your own world views so you you bought the new Republic famously and and so you know this hundred year old print magazine I'm sure many of her from familiar and you had this vision of journalists bringing into the twenty first century fixing this business model of journalism which of course I know all too well so broken and it didn't work it failed and it failed at a very high monetary costs but also to some extent reputational costs for you feeling like one for the mac and for the magazine and and you said that that was a real turning point for you which you just started to to him that they can you talk a little bit about the texture of that turning point what was the learning their yeah I mean it was so as as you were saying hi I'm Buffy Republic in twenty twelve you know I'm it was in a period right around when Facebook went public I had I had money and wanted to do something that was good for the world I had always been interested in journalism and really believe in its importance and in democracy I particularly loved the long from kind of journalism I was you know I'm particularly then you know a subscriber to New York review of books The New Yorker the new Republic occasionally often on the nation like I was in and in many ways I just couldn't get enough of this of this stuff and the fact that so many of these publications are particularly new Republic was what felt to me like at that point really struggling to to make it work felt like an opportunity and that's where the the hubris came and I mean I I really did believe that with some smarts elbow grease and capital and an investment we could find silver bullet we could we could find some way not necessarily to make it you know a super profitable endeavor but but when that would be break even and I was last person in the world to learn that a lot of these publications have never been very keep and they were effectively essentially public goods and I spend multiple years trying to apply a kind of market world logic that when these things have to be a business for them to work in the long term not missing what was right there directly visible to in retrospect it felt like everybody but me which is that these things are public institutions they were public goods they were never going to make money they were probably going to lose money they happen to be incorporated as for profits a hundred years ago but they they're effectively not for profits and just naming that and taking that owns a responsibility but I I had too much too much ambition too much too much optimism so I pushed in invested quite a bit of money and and pushed particularly in the digital direction because as much as I want to hold on to print I also want to bring in new audiences and then made some pretty fundamental management errors I brought in the CEO who wanted to let go the editor it it got very messy and the other at the time and doesn't senior editors left on mass and we had a you know a moment where we had to stop printing for a couple months we re staff we we grew back but there's no question that the institution was weakened because of that experience because of mine failure but but I also think that in the long term the new Republic I sold it to you a year later it's still going it it's and it's one of a very special small set of institutions in American public discourse which I hope will you know fixed on for a long time how did you get through that like how did you after all of the successes having that failure like did you.
