"Finally, today, click through for a simple chart that will make all this plane, but I like it when we get numbers like this. To better understand what the kids today are into. Quote, a new Pew Research Center survey of American teenagers ages 13 to 17 finds TikTok has rocketed in popularity since its North American debut several years ago and is now a top social media platform for teens among the platforms covered in the survey. Some 67% of teens say they use TikTok with 16% of all teens saying they use it almost constantly. Meanwhile, the share of teens who say they use Facebook a dominant social media platform teens in the center's 2014, 2015 survey, has plummeted from 71% then to 32% today. YouTube tops the 2022 teen online landscape among the platforms covered in the center's new survey, as it is used by 95% of teens. TikTok is next on the list of platforms that were asked about in the survey 67%, followed by Instagram and SnapChat, which are both used by about 6 in ten teens. After those platforms come Facebook with 32% and smaller shares who use Twitter, Twitch, WhatsApp, Reddit, and tumblr. Changes in the social media landscape since 2014, 2015, extend beyond TikTok's rise on Facebook's fall, growing shares of teens say they are using Instagram and SnapChat since then. Conversely, Twitter and tumblr saw declining shares of teens who report using their platforms. And two of the platforms, the center track in the earlier survey, vine and Google+, no longer exist. There are some notable demographic differences in teen social media choices. For example, teen boys are more likely than teen girls to say they use YouTube Twitch and Reddit, whereas teen girls are more likely than teen boys to use TikTok, Instagram and SnapChat. In addition to higher shares of black and Hispanic teens report using TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, and WhatsApp compared with white teens. This survey also explores the frequency with which teens are on each of the top 5 online platforms, YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, SnapChat, and Facebook, fully 35% of teens say they are using at least one of them, quote, almost constantly.

I'm going to get taken down. So lo fi hip hop radio, low fiber edit that out. Never mind that I asked. You can cut out that whole thing. 54% of teens say it would be hard to give up social media. That's actually low. That's only about half. Yeah, but it's also a survey and I think it's some measure of that's how they're I don't like social media. I can't do it now. I can give it up. I could just watch. I could stop any time. No problem. Nearly all teens have access to a smartphone. It was 73%, 8 years ago. It is now 95% every single one of us on YouTube. 90% laptop or desktop computer, 80% gaming console. That number is actually down a point. Probably not a single margin. So I think great stuff. I mean, the pew thing it is surveys. But I like what they do. I feel like it gives us a little insight. It gives us baselines, baselines, there you go. I'm not fond of political surveys and opinion surveys, but these kind of behavioral surveys are interesting. So the great assault still, team girls are more likely than boys to use TikTok Instagram and SnapChat, teen boys, more likely to use Twitch, Reddit, and YouTube, black teens, especially drawn to TikTok compared with other groups. Interested. Is there a black creators on TikTok? Oh, yeah. We talk about black Twitter. There's definitely a community on Twitter. Is there black TikTok? Is that makes sense? Yeah. Yeah, I have tons of thought of them. I see a ton of it. Like a black creator in boom. TikTok's algorithm is so sensitive, so easy to manipulate even. You've been looking at bikini. Yeah. No, I did. I could conversation my daughter. She says she thinks even it's sensitive to time of day. So if you look at something in the morning and something in the evening, it knows it'll change what it offers you, depending on time of day. I have yet to demonstrate that to my satisfaction, but I really do think it's extraordinarily sensitive, much more so than the other outcomes. I can see it as sir. I'm just thinking about this morning, I got up and I was checking my messages and I had a notification TikTok, whatever. Open it up, TikTok, and the first thing it shows me is Gary V and then I just get through it because I don't want to hear it. And the next thing was another motivational speaker.

"Where to point the engineering team at Twitter to make it radically better. So this is as he's still trying to get out of the deal, what do you make of those remarks, David? If he is, say, the court forces him to buy Twitter. What do you think he does with it? Does he turn around and resell it? Or does he stick with it and try to quote unquote fix it? Well, I've always hoped that Elon would buy Twitter. I mean, let's be clear. I supported the deal and the idea of this deal and I wanted it to go through because I think it would be a societal good if Elon restored Twitter to being a free speech platform. That's been my main interest in this whole thing is that I'd like to see censorship restrained and free speech restored on a major social network like Twitter. So I have always hoped that this deal would go through at the same time. I've taken Elon and his word when he tweeted that there's this bot issue that that is a serious issue and he has tried to get to the bottom of it and it seems like Twitter hasn't been fully transparent about that. And so I can understand that issue from his point of view. I want to get your thoughts on another issue having to do with social media. We've got this hashtag Civil War. Now trending on social media after the FBI searched Trump's Mar-a-Lago property as you've talked about many times on this show and in your writing, you are a free speech advocate, a free speech advocate on social media. But in this particular case, how do you think these platforms, Twitter, Reddit, et cetera? Should handle something like this? Well, first of all, I would just, if anyone is calling for violence, I would condemn that. And in fact, you could take down any posts that is trying to incite violence or a crime, content like that is not protected under the First Amendment. So even as a primary, you think the hashtag in itself, like anything with that hashtag should be taken. No, the last word I was about to go with this is to say, look, first of all, you can take down content that would seek to incite violence and be consistent with the First Amendment. However, I don't think that's what this hashtag is necessarily doing. What I see is that people on the right are criticizing this raid on Mar-a-Lago on president Trump's private home, in which 30 FBI agents who are dressed up as soldiers wearing body armor and carrying AR-15 weapons of war with their fingers just outside the trigger guard. I mean, it looked like a raid of something like, you know, Pablo Escobar's home, they're wondering whether this is whether this is the beginning of a Civil War, whether a Civil War is being declared on them. And I think that's a legitimate question to ask, and you've got to see it in the context of not just this event, but things that have been happening for the last 19 months. I mean, you've had draconian COVID policies that have given unelected bureaucratic tutorial powers, even here in California, Gavin Newsom is still ruling under state of emergency. You've got the Department of Homeland Security, which is a law enforcement agency. They redefine misinformation as terrorism. And then they hired a Democratic Party operative to run a new agency, a sort of mystery of truth, devoted to defining what that misinformation would be. And now you've got this raid on president Trump's home, which is utterly unprecedented. And you know, I think I don't know what ultimately this was about. But I do think that these agencies deserve the public deserves an explanation from these agencies in terms of what they're after and what they were doing. All right, well, once again, you expressing your opinions, I should just underscore, but David always appreciate hearing your thoughts here on the show and we'll continue to follow this Twitter story and more craft ventures, general partner, David Sachs, appreciate it.

'Do Not Burn This Country' With Dave Rubin

"Do not burn this country, everybody. That is the sequel. Is that fair to say? It is the sequel, and I have to say this is quite an excellent book. Now that I'm really diving into it here, this is you actually get a chance to read amazing. By Dave Rubin, the first book was don't burn this book. Now the question is did anyone actually try to burn the book? Well, we had people that tried to digitally burn it. Oh, is that right? The freak sun Reddit and those Internet weirdos that coordinate to ruin Amazon reviews and things like that. That's what I would call a digital book burning. I don't know that anyone that was out there. Like actually burning the book. But now it's don't burn in the country, which is surviving and thriving in our woke dystopia by Dave Rubin. We're going to spend the whole hour talking about this and just kind of some news of the day stuff. But let's just dive right into it. Tell us, kind of what's in this book? What's the argument you're making? Well, the argument is we're running out of time, and we better figure out what to do here. This is something that you and I have talked about for a long time, Charlie, and on the inscription. Is this the one that I wrote to you? I will even read it to the audience because I know how happy you are about this. One of the great things about this inscription right over here, this is the book that I sent Charlie a couple of weeks ago in the book came out. I wrote Charlie. Okay, fine. You were right. I did become a conservative, because years ago, we were sitting in a car after an event, I think we did at the university of Berkeley, where antifa showed up and people were yelling and pulling fire alarms, and we're very, very scary, and we were also with that very scary Candace Owens. She told people out. And we're in the car after the event. And you know, we're talking about free speech. We actually disagreed on some stuff on stage, but they didn't care. They just want to yell you yell at you and shut you down and the whole thing. And we were in the car on the way back on to dinner and you said, Dave, you will be a conservative one day. And I didn't really push back that hard because I could see the road. The road was being laid right in front of me. I could see it. Now, we can all whittle down the argument of what exactly is a conservative. That doesn't really matter, and the beauty of, I would say, what sort of is happening on this new right as some people are calling it, is that you can agree to disagree on some stuff. And even if the show I did in Phoenix last night at the improv that you opened for, we got into it with the crowd because I play with the crowd a lot. And people do disagree on things. People have disagreements, even when it comes to something like abortion. And yet can still all call themselves conservatives. That's a beautiful thing. So this book really is about, well, look, the woke have destroyed an awful lot, right? I mean, if you look at what's gone on in these last 5 years, the woke have decimated all of our institutions, education institutions, cultural institutions, entertainment, just institutions, corporate institutions, et cetera. So you have to acknowledge that and as my friend Jordan Peter would say, Peterson would say, you have to give the devil his due man, we may not like what they're doing, but they have done it, and you have to actually say, wow, they did something. And that's important to acknowledge, otherwise you can't fight against

How Should Conservatives View Elon Musk? Pedro Gonzalez Explains

"How should we think about the Elon thing as American conservatives, right? So, I mean, I have a nuanced view of him as a person. I don't really appreciate his China production or his Neuralink stuff. But I certainly love the fact that he's willing to use resources. A lot of them to do something what seems to be admirable. How should we think about this? Yeah. No, that's exactly right. I think it's important that we don't just become Musk cheerleaders and pretend that he's now based in right wing. I honestly know very little about his political views. I think he's an interesting person, but here's what we know for sure, right? The reaction from the incumbent elites, the people who own most of the media, and most social media platforms already was almost entirely negative. Toward the idea of Elon Musk resting control of a key institution. And Twitter is, I mean, the people that work yesterday is saying, Twitter is a private company. Therefore, if Twitter wants to ban the president of the United States, they can do that. And now that Musk is taken over, it's like, well, hold on, it's not a private company. You know, suddenly it's actually correct when they say that. Twitter is because of the sheer size, it has, because of the sheer size and the control that it has of information, it is actually correct to say Twitter is not just a company. It is in its own way, a kind of public institution at this point, just because of the size of it, right? And I think that the fact that Musk taking control of Twitter seemed to enrage all of these other elites, you know, you've got the former CEO of Reddit, writing an article in The Washington Post, which is owned by a billionaire Jeff Bezos, saying, you know, we need more regulations to prevent rich people from owning the means of communication. That should tell you that these people are afraid of losing control over a tool that allows them to control information the way Twitter

"On slash dot that Y Combinator is the summer founders program was taking applications. And we applied, we get invited up, gave the best pitch of my life. I felt. And PG calls me that night and he says, we're rejecting you. It's so good. And I was like, dude, you're called us up here anyway. We were already drinking, so it was good. We were celebrating prematurely and drinking and then it went right into misery drinking, which was helpful. And then on the train back, PG calls. And he says, look, still don't like your idea. I'm like, thanks. Why don't you call me just to tell me that? It's like, but if you change your idea, we'll fund you, because we like you to, and you know what, let's see what you can do. And so I was like, let me get back to you. I had to play it cool. And we talk it over and obviously what we're going to do it. So get off at the next train stop, get a train back to Boston, call Paul back and say, look, Paul, all right. We'll do it. You got to flies back home, though, because we missed our train. So the house can be able to negotiation. He's like, whatever, fine. And then we get up and meet PG at the office, the early YC office, and we just talk. And to PG's credit, he's like, well, what do you do all day? Solve a problem that you have, and I was telling him about this forum that I had started and he was like, oh, well, how do you like delicious? And I was like, what's delicious? And it's funny, Josh is now an LP, you know, delicious in many ways was like the OG Pinterest. If they had just made it more graphic forward interfaces, bookmarks, the same thing. But, you know, at the time, delicious was this great social bookmarking app. Where you could see what in aggregate people were saving for later. And it had touched on something that was very interesting because that turned out was good content a lot of the time. It was reference material, but it was a pretty good sealant noise filter. And PG was like, well, what if you just improved upon this and find a way to get people to submit links, they think are interesting. And I'm thinking back to this form, and I'm like, yeah, okay. This could work. Cool. All right, yeah, sure. We'll take your money. And to be credited, he was like, just build the front page of the Internet. That was his mandate. And it was a good slogan. And gave us a check. You handed me this check for $12,000. And I am just awestruck. Oh, my God. I can't lose this. We gotta get this to the bank immediately. And we flew back to Virginia and got started on Reddit. And shout out alderman library. That is the place where I came up with the name registered the domain name. I hope people would say I read it on Reddit. I don't think anyone to date has, but that was the dream. That's awesome. So let's just jump ahead to what you're doing today. So you have this fun called 7 7 6. And you're doing a bunch of interesting stuff under this umbrella. And I'd love to talk about a bunch of it..

"Let's end on this. Give us a little tease. Everybody needs to get it, but tell us a little bit about why you wrote Zilla and what people will find in it. Because I am really concerned that our kids, I want this book in schools. You know, and you can read it. It can be Reddit two nights. I want our children to understand what is happening to our country, that every child born today. Any child today born less than 5 years old. By the time they reach 30, they're going to have a $300,000 share of the national debt. Is that the legacy we want to leave to our kids, is that the American Dream is that you leave every generation better off when we're doing right now is fiscal child abuse. It's outrageous, passing on these trillions and trillions of dollars of Bill. It's like we're powering at their expense. And so I want people to be aware of what's happening and we've got to turn it around. And I'm optimistic we will do that. But I guarantee you the schools aren't teaching anything that we've been talking about for the last 45 minutes. They don't teach any of this. They teach America is a terrible country. We're racist. We killed all the Indians. We're probably responsible on all the problems in Africa. We're colonias. And we are the greatest country in the world. We're not perfect people, but everyone wants to come here because we are a land of opportunity and we're a land of freedom.

"Files to go public. Is Apple once again the canary in the coal mine this time for aron, H and R block to square because square is now block. Get it? The biggest investing star of web three is starting her own fund, and a look at the battery technology breakthrough that could transform all our lives. Here's what you missed today in the world of tech. One of the longest running startup sagas of the web era is reaching a conclusion, Reddit has confidentially filed its S one with the SEC for an initial public offering. The number of shares to be offered and the price range have yet to be determined, but given that Reddit was founded all the way back in 2005, given that it has had this twisty turning history of getting acquired, spawn out, et cetera, given the outsized role Reddit plays in our culture. This has been a long time coming. Quoting The Wall Street Journal. As of August, Reddit said it had a valuation of about $10 billion after raising more than $400 million from Fidelity Investments in February, the social media company said it had raised about $500 million at a $6.5 billion valuation. Reddit has been looking to build on the attention it gained when at the start of the year. It's WallStreetBets forum became a hotspot for the individual investors who rallied around GameStop and other stocks. San Francisco based Reddit founded in 2005, is known for its message boards on an array of topics plus its ask me anything digital town halls with celebrities, politicians, and subject matter experts. The company was sold to Conde nast in 2006 and the magazine publisher's parent advanced publications, spun red it off in 2011 and remains a shareholder. Over time, Reddit has grown to outpace rivals such as dig to become a haven for niche communities to gather and a go to source of news. Reddit had more than 50 million daily users as of January, according to its website. In August, the company said it reached a $100 million in advertising revenue in a quarter for the first time, almost triple the prior year figure, but that it remained unprofitable. So I guess the question is, will the meme stock traders want to buy into the stock of the company that makes their meme trading possible? More details about Reddit that has shaken loose by this filing. The site is home to more than 100,000 active communities is visited by more than 50 million people every day has raised over $1 billion over its lifetime and was most recently valued, as I said at more than $10 billion.

"The subreddit WallStreetBets, where a lot of different users were egging people on to buy shares of heavily shorted stocks like GameStop. Tell me, you know, it's been several months. How do you think about that situation with the benefit of time? In that moment, the first decision with a series of decisions that we were making was, like, what's going on here? Is there a problem here? In an area where we need to intervene or do something. And we came to the conclusion that it's actually very important that that community stay online. Of course, external pressure, and then we saw our own internal challenges with the influx of traffic and attention streaming our systems. So that was our first duty. And looking back on it, I'm very proud of the work that our team did through that. I'm proud of how we I think articulated what's important about that community. Because it is complex. I think a lot of nuance there. And the broader theme of the power of community. And then through Reddit, seeing a window into this community of retail investors, how they're thinking, what's going on? I think was really valuable. So you still think it's a good thing. Oh, that was great development. Overwhelmingly. Yeah. I mean, regulators have been probing whether or not that surge broke the law. Have you been involved in those conversations? Have you talked to regulators at all? Personally, and I think there's maybe been a few questions, but not to the level that I'd be able to give you a more specific answer. Our statements on this have been pretty much in line with my previous answer, which is people are allowed to talk about stocks. In fact, it's important that people talk about stocks. At the same time, your policies, I mean, market manipulation, illegal activity isn't allowed on Reddit. Right. So how do you sort out whether you have market manipulation happening versus just to grassroots movement talking about these stocks? That's a great question. And so manipulation is not allowed on Reddit. And we've spent a lot of time on that over the years. In fact, it's one of the biggest areas within our anti evil efforts is manipulation. So whether in this moment we're talking about stock advice or conversation, but ranging from trolls having a volume louder than their numbers should allow. Or maybe even a savvy marketer trying to get the best of Reddit to promote their stuff, or spammers or whatever. I guess the latter two are really the same in my opinion. Yeah. Keeping our voting system fair is so important. That's where we've put a lot of effort for well over a decade now. We've been talking a lot about content moderation in the valley for a long time. There's a large company in Menlo Park that you might be familiar with that has been in the news a lot for a variety of different content moderation struggles and issues. But you know, I'm trying to, I'm curious, how do you view your progress since the 2016 election in terms of cleaning up your platform and making sure it's safe? I think we've made a lot of progress. Yeah. Now I always follow that with and there's more work to do. I think the work never stops. But for us, we have evolved our policies, a number of times. We've evolved evolved our ability to articulate those policies, which I think is also really important. And our ability to enforce them at scale. And then on the other side, or maybe another aspect of this that I think is really unique to Reddit is the empowerment of our communities. Yeah. Every post and comment on Reddit has both the up and down arrows. And it's really our first and probably actually most effective line of defense. People against is people. Because people like they create these communities on Reddit for themselves. They want to have nice spaces. They want to be free of interference. They want to talk about their interests and passions. And so they being able to reject behaviors and in content that doesn't fit within our communities. It's very powerful. Last year you took down the Donald. The subreddit that before having all kinds of toxic behavior, do you think you were too slow to do that? The Donald like many of these decisions of ours that live in the gray area was complex. And so if I understood it, the way I understood now sooner, I think we would have done things differently. But it was a journey to get there. And in fact, our policies evolved a number of times over the years because that community among many things was very good at living in the gray area. That was kind of a problem. Yeah. Well, you know, the former CEO of Reddit Ellen Powell has described a year ago she tweeted that Reddit had become a safe haven for white supremacists. And that taking down the Donald wasn't enough. Do you agree with that characterization? What do you think of her criticism? I do not. I think that's a fair criticism. Okay. Well, in fact, when I returned to write it in 2015, among other things, it was to address this issue. And among the first things that I and the team did was evolve our policies and ban some of the worst communities of that nature that were actually created and thrived under my predecessors watch. So I think results matter. These are not easy problems. I think reasoning through these things in articulating them at scale and enforcing them at scale is never straightforward. But we've done our very best. And I'm proud of the progress we've made. So the Reddit ambassador program received a lot of criticism in his polarizing the community. What was the idea behind this and why is the impact so bad? This is an audience question. Okay, fair enough. So the ambassador program is for what it's worth is still under development. But the idea is we're growing around the world. And so we're trying to be intentional about for these users basically hiring them as contractors to help us grow Reddit. So it's we're trying to strike the balance of being human powered. With all of the taste and good judgment that people people human beings bring as opposed to algorithms and scripts and other things that we could possibly do. Why has it taken so long for you guys to think international? Well, more in more detail. Let's talk about growth in general, which is Reddit. We are not powered by the same kind of friends and follower model that social networks are. Social networks have this very powerful network effect where I join and the product gets better on my Friends are there. So I'm very highly incentivized to bring my Friends and for better or for worse. It led to explosive growth of these platforms. Reddit doesn't work that way. And so it means our growth has been much more organic. Reddit grows the way a city grows. They're created by their citizens. And cities naturally self organize in a neighborhoods that have their own cultures and vibes. And Reddit is very similar. It naturally self organizes into subreddits into communities. That have their own cultures and funds. And so that's the way Reddit grows. It's a natural living thing. And sometimes I actually think our job at Reddit is less as tech and product people and more as like anthropologists, like studying this thing and trying to understand it and trying to shepherd its growth. But it's people. It is created by people by its users. Thank you so much, Steve, appreciate your time. It's my pleasure. Thank you. And that's it for today's tech news briefing.

Commodity Stocks Plummet as Climbing COVID Cases Weigh on Market

"Where we start off with. The great commodity collapsed crude oil falling to its lowest level since the end of may goals at its lows of the session was a prices not seen since april of last year. Silver is now down more than eight percent in just the past week. Cobber lumber you know also down. So does this commodity selloff give you cause for concern or is it a sign that inflation will be transitory as the fed says stan. What are your thoughts tells you that they think or at least investors selling off crude who firmed up the dollar firmed out the ten year. Us treasury yield. They're telling you that they think the fed is going to start to taper soon. And if you go back to two thousand thirteen. In the december meeting the fed started to taper bond purchases from eighty five billion a month to seventy five trillion and then each subsequent meeting they started tapering ten billion dollars. Look at those three risk assets that we talked about that would signal that maybe we get it. As soon as jackson hole at the end of this month or the next meeting in september that the fed might really start speaking to now. Obviously i have no idea but when you look at crude oil i'll just tell you what happened. From december two thousand thirteen to december two thousand fourteen when that taper was in full effect crude oil in half okay so just from a technical perspective right now. Crude oil right now is broken that trend. That's been in place since the lows about a year ago or so and so technically it seems in a tough spot especially right now when the world is kind of grappling with delta variant. And maybe we're seeing less demand for your karen. That's what i think it is. i think it's delta variant. I think that you know when you have commodities and just a little bit of pulled back on demand commodities are commodities obviously so a little less demand means prices can really move especially as a commodity producers are gearing up making more. So that's what it seems to me. I'm not sure how to fit together. The very strong jobs number. That's not cover for the fed at all and yet this commodity action that is and the delta varian and the number of cases and the number of that is some cover for the fed.

He lied the entire time and said that we don't do that and he was also under oath lying so we don't support that research at all when we have been supporting that exact research in that exact wasn't gaming. These definitely changed his two. Oh real quick. Isn't it interesting how he change it. And everybody was kicked off facebook. There kicked off twitter. You're label conspiracy theorists saying this exact same shit three months ago and i don't know how it wasn't so fucking obvious to us. There's a corona fires lab in bouhad. Not that just happens to be there saying the whole time and then a crucifiers gets out in on one. No no no. No that that are hurt. Yeah i did hear that. I didn't know that it was actually called. The corona virus. Woo lab or whatever. I figured there was just a lab that they do a whole lot of different research. I didn't know specifically was based in this. yeah. I didn't know that either. Those i definitely heard that it it. It got out of lab that i definitely heard early autumn or early on i dunno. I just think it's so funny was just like we that bat shit. We ran with absolutely everything except the most obvious version. Which is a fucking lab. That has the virus in it that they were doing. Things took a gain of function research. There put steroids in the fucking Viruses see what would happen and that shit got out and they don't want to be responsible so they're like oh it was animals. It was wet market. Well our did that. It was in the lab and they used to tested on animals. A do the animals out with the animal. They didn't burn them out. Do whatever they were supposed to do to discard of them. Or whatever the fuck but either way it's like all it does doesn't make you think like they had to disease than maybe they always had the cure. They got the fucking Vaccine so quick history and this is the craziest thing about the vaccine. Why does the vaccine work on all the variants. Oh one vaccine works on indian variant. The chinese various the one thing that just cures everything though a new the tylenol vast alcohol. Get the fuck outta here. Of course they got all the information all the research from that can lab and the vaccine is done with it under a year. Would they say they don't know if it helps it all they do. It's been working with all the various with like crazy. Certainly i saw i saw on cnn this morning said there's some delta variant that they're not sure about sure and then a few months later this hour it works really well okay. Yeah none of this makes any fucking sense but what it does make. You should make everybody think about is if this if this was all some type of planned social experiment. What was it for iot. Here's my thing. I don't think plan social experiment. I think that they're just a bunch of goofy at that lab and they fucked up by not having enough security and then they were embarrassed that they fucked up without having enough security at because apparently november three people that worked in the lab Went to the hospital with like these conditions were as hard for them to breathe. And that's probably how it got out right. As the first time they got it and then they took it out in an accident accident. They just didn't want to be accountable. And by not being accountable they just got to keep covering up their lives and covering up their lives and that fucking gerbil foul she was the guy who just did it and we exalted him. We just made him see. Maybe the no he knew the head of it. I'm gonna be. Maybe maybe that's the problem with the us is society. Somebody has to know right so everybody turns the him to make themselves feel better. He's chrissy teigen. He's chrissy t motherfucker noodles on. And he was lying and he was exalted. He was put some fun here when he knew. He has skeletons in his closet to and wants them skeletons. Came out now. All of a sudden braking. By the way i don't know if he knew he didn't know what i can easily see him not knowing but acting like he's knowing because when you act like you know it puts people at ease and at a time like last year when everybody was in this like stated terrorist state of panic. That's all you want. That's gonna come became a star because he would get up there every dan just talk and then what happened with him as well. Yeah god that he had a different type of buyers. Got us bodies motherfucker have bodies so i don't know i just think it's interesting to see this happen like this. We do this all the time that we will never know what the fuck is going on in. This country are in this world. Fuck we on social media on. How many youtube conspiracy theory video. Y'all makes i don't care what. Cnn tells you fox tells you msnbc tells you we will never truly not true. I'm looking at the fucking news today. I'm like biden. Putin summit been used to kill trump for the same shit which would go meet with putin. They would world war three the bucket trader. Be come with this guy yati yada. But it's like with biden this guy you let your guard away. I mean the hypocrisy is absolutely hilarious. Yeah wouldn't you be pissed if you're conservative right now. If you're conservative trumper. I'd be pissed. Would you be the same. People are sitting all over you. For what trump and now. They're doing the exact same thing. I'll get no criticism. I don't know if this would be the word but yeah out here like don't come. Don't come to america fucking shit fuck l. Don't come to american shit. I just want everybody to pay attention to the media. Could malcolm mexico this shit a long time ago. If you're not careful the media have you thinking the president the oppressed in the oppress the president. That was Something he used. But it's the truth. They can literally make us look and see who the bad guy who the guy is anytime they want. So it's just like some one person can do the exact same shit and he's the worst person in the world not saying that trump wasn't one of these people were because he absolutely would but then this guy can do it and it's like it's all about the it when you see biden in these meetings do think he's in shape enough to be president of the free world. I was thinking today putin my snuffing in front of everyone. And he wouldn't even know that it happened. He would not know that he had. I don't even think he knows where he is. Did you see the thing with south africa when they're at the meeting. He's on his well. The boris johnson. Or whatever. like that that You know the. He's the prime minister of england. Whatever he's thanking. Everybody for being there. And he says all the countries and then goes and he's finally fucking jim carey's there's a forgot about south africa and then boris johnson goes.

Alexis hannigan tweeting out one of the articles on it and tagging elon. Musk sane quote just think hashtag space shrooms are gonna be intense af and quotes but sadly the whole thing was a bunch of crap. Basically just the latest in a long line of one particular hacks attempts to get his pseudoscience hogwash published in legitimate journals so the claim that was actually published in the journal advances in microbiology and included co-authors from harvard smithsonian center for astrophysics george mason university and other institutions. That should know better. Was that images taken by. Nasr's rovers on mars as well as its reconnaissance. Orbiter high-rise camera show several fungus like organisms. And that they believe the images show fungus because quoting the paper. Fungi thrive in radiation intense environments and quotes and quoting from future ism. The team went so far. As to say that black fungi. Bacteria like specimens also appeared atop the rovers. They didn't stop there. The team also examined photos taken by nasa's high rise and found evidence for amorphous specimens within a crevice that change shape and location than disappeared. It is well established that a variety of terrestrial organisms survive. Mars like conditions. The team concludes given the likelihood earth has been seeding mars with life and life has been repeatedly transferred between worlds. It would be surprising if there was no life on mars. The team argues that these martian life forms would have evolved on an already be adapted to the low temperatures intermittent availability of water. Low amounts of free oxygen and high levels of radiation and quotes.

New Tesla Powerwall, China Protest, Volkswagen Investigation

"Year and stay. We've got some news. On tesla energy. A new energy product actually called the power while plus we'll go through the details on that then we also have an update on the situation on the protest in china and some news on volkswagen slash volkswagen. I stay for tesla stock today especially in a downmarket. Tessa finishing up almost five percent. I green day sense earnings to seven hundred nine dollars. Forty four cents that compared to the nasdaq down about nine tenths of a percent. Interestingly on the rise today this was the highest volume day for tesla of the week and sense earnings about forty million shares trading hands. Even though fridays in general tend to be about five to ten percent less volume as we learned during the s. and p. five hundred inclusion analysis period. So interesting to see that. I didn't see a whole lot of news that would have driven the stock today. But oftentimes things that are not. News-based are what's driving the stock right. So let's talk about the power wall plus this was posted yesterday on reddit by user tang. Who said that they were just finalizing their designed for tessler today in san interesting thing power while plus they have shared at the spec sheet for the power while plus and this is a different product than tesla shows online with the power while to now a lot of the specs are the same here but what it looks like tesla has done has integrated some of the components that previously would have been separated in what looks like a continued effort to increase the ease of insulation. We heard yulon talk a lot about this. On tests earnings call and of course we had heard from on the week prior on twitter that tesla solar whether the solar glass roof or rooftop solar would only be sold with an accompanying power wall on the earnings call. Ilan said that he believes this is the most important thing about the solitary of situation noting that installations would be much easier because power from solar would only ever go to the power wall then the power. Walt self would be the only thing that we need to interact as a power supply to the house. Or interact with the grit. It sounds like increasing. The power capability of the power wall was also a key component. Here so not changing the energy but allowing it to provide greater power to be able to handle peak power

DoorDash Drivers Game Algorithm to Increase Pay

"For the delivery app. Door dash may have found a way to trick the algorithm that serves them jobs into offering better pave bloomberg profile their effort which is called hashtag declined now they encourage other drivers to decline all the lowest paid jobs to get the app to offer more money but to make it work. They need lots of drivers on board and that can be tricky with gig workers. They don't share a break room after all instead they're getting together online and facebook groups and on reddit. Lindsay cameron is a professor of management at the wharton school. Who studies gig. Workers and work doesn't uber driver herself for awhile. So there's no way for workers to have worker to worker communication via the app itself. There's no slack line or anything like that. So the few times workers are able to connect. It can be in person you know. I met other ride hailing drivers when i was at a parking lot or at the expect inspections station and beyond that. It's usually just these online forms. Which only a minority of drivers are active on the forms but for the people that are on the forms. These are really you know. They're like the virtual water cooler where people can share tips.

The COVID Effect is a Boon for Kids Online Gaming

"If you had to guess one company that saw revenues absolutely skyrocket in twenty twenty. What would you say you might think. I don't know what zoom maybe peril others another brand benefiting from a rough twenty twenty. It's roadblocks and online game that counts middle schoolers as its biggest fans. Don't ask me how. I know if you have a preteen noah preteen or are a preteen. Chances are you've heard of blocks. He lets users around one hundred fifty million a month build and play video games without needing to know how to write code. It's free to join. The company makes money through the sale of in-app purchases using its own virtual currency users can buy costumes for their virtual characters or jump up a level or two game and when i say roadblocks makes money i do mean a lot of money. Roablock says revenue jumped seventy percent between september twenty nineteen and september twenty twenty two more than six hundred million dollars. The motley fool reported that the games daily users number over thirty million people. Those figures have investors drooling and last week. They got a chance to buy into roadblocks wild success when the company went public the platforms value soared sixty percent to forty seven billion dollars after its first day of trading so who would have thought an online kids game would be exploding in popularity right about now. Well anyone who has a middle schooler at home. If kids seem extra attached to their tech devices at the moment. they're not alone. The amount of time kids spent on screens doubled in the first half of twenty twenty. As compared to the same period the prior year so reports the new york times custodio which tracks device usage kids ages four through fifteen called the cova effect socially isolated kids largely stuck at home made for quite the captive audience and that meant more money for games like roadblocks one reddit users summed it up nicely. Kids who distance learning always have tabs open and roadblocks the user wrote quote and nowhere. Mommy leaves her purse unquote. But roadblocks isn't the only game out there benefiting from all those open internet tabs minecraft has been making microsoft quite proud parent company as of late the game which bills itself as an open ended online video game saw twenty five percent increase in new players in the early months of the pandemic. Unlike roadblocks minecraft users pay up front for access to the game that netted them over four hundred million in revenue last year. Nowhere near roadblocks is twenty twenty revenue but both companies have turned quite the prophet in a year that decimated several industries but the so-called cove effect is only expected to last as long as well. Cova does right best of secret. Even roadblocks said so in its s one filing they wrote quote. We do not expect these activity levels to be sustained and in future periods we expect growth rates for our revenue to decline unquote whether or not usage rates. Actually plummet is more kids. Go back to school. Long-abandoned screen time rules claw their way back into homes that does remain to be seen but one thing is clear. The roadblocks rage has taught us to never underestimate the power of a kid with access to a technological device and knowing where to find a credit card is helpful to come on.

A new way to invest that doesn't involve buying stocks hyped on Reddit

"So lately. All the buzz his been about well. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Bitcoin recently fifty thousand dollars a bitcoin and people who've been buying the stocks that are being touted on read it and it was all that mess that went on with Game stop and other stocks. That went up like rockets and then like rockets can do crash back down to earth and my son is in this investing group at school. He's fifteen and they're investing not real money but they all have their stock portfolios and wanna read you to texts from him from this morning. They're really funny. Is said in the last nineteen minutes. My stock portfolio dropped by six sixty. Then he texts me eight minutes later and these eh. then it went up by eight hundred dollars. And i the other night. When he was trapped. In the car with me i started boring. I'm trying to talk about how my philosophies investing work very differently than matt worrying about day trading and options and all. That was going to happen up to the minute and if you thought a father could be more irrelevant to sun then i was that minute you you couldn't be no interest in anything i was saying because to him. This is sport and that's what investing has been of late call. Investing is really speculating. And that's not my thing. I mean i'm the dulles person alive and i invest in a dull way because the ideas i wanna make money over time and so. That's why i get excited about really accessible. Investing opportunities for small investors did allow you to build reasonable wealth over time instead of trying to get the quick score and my son's a sharp kid hill. Eventually get it and will not that. It matters what you're buying and selling minute by minute. And by the way he's asked me if he can have a real investing account. Will you know you'd have to have what's called a custodial said yeah yeah where where you were the pretend owner but i'm the one doing the investing and i don't know what to do you know. Give them a couple of hundred dollars and let him play. And maybe learn the value of term investing. But you know it fifteen. What is long term. That's like three days from now. It's hard to explain a concept where you build wealth over time well do you know goldman sachs is goldman sachs is for rich people like crista. People was massive amounts of money. Who work with a personal financial manager. Who handles their money for them. That's right krista. That's what you do with your millions. Yeah no no okay. So there are. There are very wealthy people. That's what they do and goldman sachs has been doing some stuff lately that doesn't fit at all their historical pedigree They're the ones that issue the apple card for people that have the apple credit card and they have Savings accounts and all that kind of thing with no minimums will now. They've launched some cold. Marcus invest which allows people to use goldman sachs incredible financial analysis investment analysis till build robo investing portfolios for you using very low cost funds. And this is something you would ask somebody. Ten years ago if goldman sachs would ever being looking to provide investments an investment advice to everyday ordinary. People they'd say you're crazy. That will never happen. Well they're not doing what fidelity investments does where a dollar is enough to open an account many cases schwab one hundred dollars. They're doing what vanguard. Does you have to have a thousand bucks to open an account but once you have that thousand you can get advice that is tailored to your personal financial goals and outlook. The money can be and a retirement account or an investment account use what are known is exchange traded funds. Etf's and typically for the advice and the investments you pay roughly a third of a percent per year for them to handle your money. So i guess ten thousand dollars be thirty five bucks a year. Is that right. I think that's about right. three dollars. Fifty cents on a thousand. I think that's right so this is an opportunity for you to do. Investing through the nation's big boys big money houses and their whole business plan is pretty similar to what you'd have if you were with Betterment or wealth front that really started this whole investing idea. And i'm sure neither of them are very happy the goldman sachs through. Marcus invest is playing in their ballpark.

Who all all all throats obama's presidency. They had no problem with wars. They cheered it on all throughout trump. Whenever trump pulled troops out of anywhere. They were very unhappy about it. That's just because they hate donald trump's on that anything you did. They're just against even if it was in their liberal interest debate. Yeah well how is that any different. From when you thought they weren't apiece because liberals are into peace they actually are to be part of the court hit. You think hippies berkeley wanna go to war.

The white house dot gov now asks visitors for their pronouns. How is that. How the fuck am i gonna win this one. Well actually actually. You're the real.

Trump moved it back into the bedroom. Now the biden's in office he took the bust of winston churchill and took it out totally. It's not even in the white house anymore. The white house anymore. It's not because winston churchill was not gay and because he was racist until they don't understand what how it's conservative american ideology to the british prime minister in the white house. This is not conservative at all. Either way this is neither conservative or liberal isn't squad is it conservative to remove winston churchill for being a heterosexual white male with racist racist. Imagine if they just put in some fucking slave owner some confederate general. They're gonna put robert de lis bus bus man. This is not this is not conservative or liberal wide. This is now now come on he. He removed it. Because what what. Winston churchill beat the nazis because he was antifa the original antifa because he might he was gay anti semite and to give a fuck outta here he freed all the jews. He led the coalition to beat. I'm sure we could find some quotes about the churchill made about jews. I'm not sure. Find some quotes from joe biden. That are not so savory. Either the joke about jews good luck. Lhasa older lobbied winston churchill on that one his cabinet is like like. It's okay i was.

"That conservative. While is the overall. I mean i. I would doubt that if we look at this in the future ten years now five years from now. We know that obama. Oh deported more. People than trump did we know way mar people so i would think that you know that kind of thing will stay. He'll keep deporting. Just as many people i mean he'll do it in a different way and he'll be able to more because people won't be criticizing well he's also. I didn't have on my list. But he's granting legal status to something like eleven million currently is a eight year prothesis and shit. Yeah yeah yeah so. We can box that all on immigration. I'm happy to do that. We won't do that on separate things so that the muslim ban quote unquote resend. So so i'll get. I'll give it to you but for now. I think it's like well. Let's wait and see so like he's coming out of the gate pretty liberal pretty strong. We're going to increase the number of immigrants. It seems like i don't think that's true. I think he knows that i kind. I kind of think it's true. And i will definitely take you giving it to me. I'm going to highlight that for me. Yes so like. I think i think we knows. And with the brain knows that like because of covid there is no out of immigration right. Now it's just not and so it's not much for him to say yeah. Yeah like the country's open welcome all immigrants. They come anyways right later. Could totally be like yeah. you know. we're actually only accepting this. Because he hasn't put any number on anything he's just saying. In general. the policy is more immigrants. okay well. i'm happy that you gave it to me. And we'll move on prioritizing non white americans. Kobe nineteen vaccinations again. So this is something that trump would have done as well like. Trump would not have come what we know. He would not prioritize white. He certainly wouldn't have prioritized wait. I agree with that. I agree with ya. And so like if he's not prioritizing white americans what's going to happen he's gonna send the vaccines to the states. The states that are going to have pro depends on the state advertise. Oh okay. where's all the population. The majority of the population is what new york california. They were going to prioritize. Yeah sure but this is federal. Like i'm not even sure he gets to prioritize. I'm not even sure he's a control of who gets the vaccines the number of vaccines given out over over the states is going to be much more than what they don't even have. Federal like health policy had federal worming and wiggling right now. And that's fine. I don't know the details of his because he's like you can you. Can you can watch videos of him saying that. He's going to prioritize everybody but white straight males for covid nineteen vaccine play. But what what where. I was hoping that you were going to go was like it's very conservative. Because there's probably you know Tracking chips in these vaccinations. There's there shellfish in these vaccinations that are gonna kill people. So he's trying to save the white race strong area in mail trying to think that's a little besieges but i mean if you're if you're anti vaccine those people tend to be. It wouldn't be a problem for them. They're like yeah. Let the let the black because it's because it's currently three two one. I'm happy to wash. That will wash that one. Okay so And this isn't just my opinion. I wrote this down but war. With north korea. Syria iran a of middle eastern countries. And he has reported about syria and a couple of other countries. That biden is rethinking and he's actually sending more troops to countries that trump withdrew troops from. How is this conservative. The ninety i'm not talking about neoconservative but go on Well i mean that's like that's all. I'm not splitting hairs. No conservative neoconservative very different. I mean so then like under your definition like george. Bush is not conservative. he's in some ways and he's not in other ways. Yeah yeah i mean. We haven't had a conservative president then in the last few decades just to be gracious as i can be fine. Let's include me as war. Not conservative. like a cabbie liberal going to war cannot be liberal polish. How how is war fiscally conservative. How wore liberal in anyway. The fiscally or or culturally or socially any if okay if people in libya allowed to have anal sex in the streets. This is a problem. And we to firebomb them and now going to war. This is not what he's going to war for going to war to fight what al qaeda wasn't in fucking that's how that's how these people are oppressed like they're not they're not allowed to the candidate merge if they can't have gay marriage women can't drive women aren't allowed to drive. Oh why can't they drive jason. Because they're fucking stupid muslims. That's why so they need to be young enough. Not saying this job. Why is saying this is the album. The algorithms don't kit algorithm algorithms. Don't care about your feelings. Now he's saying this is anti muslim. This is this is racist. These are racist. Terrible wars jason. You're gonna fight against people of color you're sending white people to murder people of color liberal now we're sending united coalition of lgbtq. I plus plus to us three squared and and lionel straight white men. Yeah well i mean no really the arche. The patriarchy were literally fighting the patriarchy in iran in iraq and afghanistan. The patriarch is says. We're literally riffs. We're flying the lgbtq. I plus plus three s four five squared on the planes. That are bombing. Them you think love rainbow flags on the planes and black leggings stickers. Do you think they'll literally i think they will. I think they'll pilots. Will put black lives matter stickers on the bombs they dropped to afghanistan. I would be surprised if it doesn't happen at least once. In joe biden. Lillard be biden's war machine but this is not the like you cannot say this liberal thing to do like this is. This is either a neo conservative. Okay one know if. I have to take on the neo conservatives. Take on the neo liberals but this would also be neoliberal. Wouldn't it no. Like like firebombing iraq with a with a gay pride sticker on the plane is neo-liberal like you think. There's a difference. Between the difference we conservatism neo-conservatism. Then there's also difference between liberalism and neoliberalism. this is certainly not a progressive move is not a liberal move. It's in the sense that it will be sold to the progressive as liberating the people from going to war is surely the more progressive move and like so like ramping up. War is surely way for people are getting tossed from rooftops and you know. Visible minorities are getting lynch. There's some genocide the a single like progressive pundit who who wants more war what y- you're more into politics especially on the left than i am but like i can't i can't i can't think of one mainstream one that doesn't like progressive progressive. So like you think. I mean what are we talking about. T y t you want to go to war. Does jimmy door want to go to war. Does well jimmy doors michael trade. Does he want to give me during.

"For. Neil patrick the decision to start a side. Business wasn't just so he could quit his day job and travel the world while still having an income and that was part of it but it was also a decision guided by his desire to provide for his parents. You see for thirty two years. His parents owned video rental stores. Do you remember those. But of course the industry was on its way out in this was the mid two thousand. Ten's whatever you call that decade the mid two thousand ten's. I'm not sure but those doors weren't doing well around this time. Neil who was working fifty to sixty hours a week decided. He wanted to start a service to help parents as well as himself. He tried a number of paths as he tried different side. Hustles creating an ecommerce. Site blogging about pet hair vacuums and more before stumbling across a post on. Read it from someone who started cleaning company in that post the author laid out the detailed steps taken to get going after reading through the post carefully. Neil decided to give it a try himself in early two thousand thirteen. He established made this in los angeles cleaning. Service that specializes in airbnb and residential. Cleanings his first step in doing so was creating a website tall task because he had no technical background. You'll bought a template for about one hundred dollars researched how to host a website and published. What he said was initially pretty crappy looking site. Hey we've all been there. Y'all needed to determine how much to charge for cleaning services and find a cleaners themselves. He started by contacting local people with existing companies and asking them how much they charged and with their cleaning packages. Were looking at the competition. He was able to make sure there was enough margin built into his service to ensure he could operate successfully he puts it from the reddit post to the pricing scale. He essentially started made this by copying what other companies were doing at least as a way of getting things up and running although he had software to charge customers. You'll didn't know how to pay the cleaners at first. So after they got done with an appointment he would have them come to his office where he'd run downstairs. Get cash out of an atm and hand it to them eventually. He figured out a better way. Overall it took two months to get up and running to find customers. Neil focused on digital marketing. He says local marketing a gem because you're competing against local businesses only not the entire world. So it's a bit easier to manage. And it also cost less as i customer came about july twenty thirteen which he remembers because he snuck outside from his full time job and started dancing.

"reddit" Discussed on The 3:59

"For mit and harvard have long sought to find connection between language and mental health. So where better. Look than read it. Chang daily charge with these is an carson took a look at this topic so what exactly where researchers from mit and harvard looking at when going to read it. So you know there these researchers who have been interested in this idea that there is a link between language and mental health issues. And maybe we can do is detect issues by examining the language that people use so essentially what they did is applied machine learning algorithms to about eight hundred thousand <unk>. Posts disease they detect any patterns about mental health during the beginning of the pandemic. It's a funny place. It's a funny concept to get your mind wrapped around because it's it's read it and you know it's sort of known as place for while. Am as it's known for a lot of random conversations so why why was <unk>. Deemed an ideal place to look for these kinds of connections. There's a few reasons here for one. It's real time data about you know what's going on that's of concern in people's lives. The researchers were able to use it to go back into time <hes>. Spar back is january in this case to get an idea of how things were progressing as the pandemic started and they were also able to look at specific sub reddit that are devoted specifically to like certain mental health issues. Whether it's depression or schizophrenia. And then also look at. It's that are more like general advice for topics like parenting your finances <hes>. Is if there are any any other kind of broader trends. There were popping up along the way they made this point with me that for a lot of people read it is a place that they turn to for advice and support in community and whatnot and also it's something that for them could be relatively anonymous as they were gathering this data and it's no secret that anxiety levels in general has risen this year. Thanks to the coronavirus. Thanks to well everything. This dumpster fire for years. So what would exactly they find. That was surprising right so from one. They found over time that the language that was being used across different sub reddit including the general advice ones started to become more similar to particular sub reddit devoted to health anxiety and the folks that generally have been on the health anxiety. Separated are the ones who you know for. Example will really concerned about coronavirus is far back as january before. A lot of us were really. That concerned <hes> <hes>. The also found that a lot of people were talking about. You know stress relating to substance use in alcoholics consumption and that was another trend that was kind of popping up <hes> <hes> not just in separate devoted specifically to topics like addiction or alcoholism in terms of these different sub. Reddit it's like. How did these researchers determine which wants to go to and which one's religion yet so part of part of that is kind of interesting because that this sort of ties into this decision that they had to make between using read it and doing something like using clinical survey data which in some ways the clinical survey data would be more valid. Because the folks taking those surveys would be people who were clinically diagnosed in chris with the read it. You don't know for sure that the people who are on that read it have a clinical diagnosis or should've with the with the specifics. Their their cases are but they went for very large sample size. And so they're thinking. Was that kind of balance things out. <hes>. somewhat but yeah. That's an interesting concept idea that volume and just the the sheer numbers will override the concern that some folks are saying may not be legit or a relaxed sufficiently. How unusual is that approach that you know going for these law of numbers as as opposed to going for us more traditional <hes>. Clinical research work. I think it depends a little bit sort of of <hes>. Like a case by case basis for this group. This is a very early steppingstone. They're hoping that people are gonna use this research in pick up the baton and move forward and and for the purposes of what they wanted to do. They decided that read. It was gonna be the better fit. You know partly kinda like i mentioned there was the real time aspect if they hit us clinical survey data it would have been a lot more limited in scope because there would been questions the people would have had to answer <hes>. That would not have just been like kind of a broad ranging overview of what people are living in their lives in the timeframe would have been shorter is as well. And so you know for this. They're they're pretty open about what they're possible. Research limitations were. But i think in general for them. They're hoping that this is something that's going to kind of peak interest for other researchers and <hes>. Another folks we able to take this forward. Hey you there was a lot of data of asleep taken from <unk>. Both that what what do you do with it. How do you take this information and use it to benefit mental health research so they relied on machine learning algorithms in. This is something. That kind of pops. Every step of the process you know. For example early on with redoing his finding posts that had language it was specifically related to the pandemic. So you know. Words like respirator. Virus lockdown all. That sort of thing they were also able to kind of view the data in different ways using algorithms so in one case <hes>. They were kind of looking at all. The language used and placing it in these topic. Clusters and of removing the individual sub. Reddit is kind of a factor in how they clustered the topics so they were able to look like across the board at at things like <hes>. Topics like loneliness or suicide doubled. Kind of in the time frame that they were looking at they also saw the emergence of a cluster on panic attacks allen so so partly this kind of helps than being able to look at the data in a lot of different ways in terms of that data that it's a lot that they've got just curious how or how they're tapping into the fellow this information. What are they doing with it too. I guess whether it be more proactive in terms of treatment or directed the direction of where mental health research goes. What what are they doing with. The data part of their broader hope is that this is gonna be information that will be useful to clinicians <hes>. You know when you think about situation like global pandemic. This is something that is stressful for all of us. But they have this theory that for certain groups of people. they're even more vulnerable. You know stressors are exacerbating <hes>. Some issues that people are already have in the best of times right in. So how do you identify those people who need the most help. Who are the most vulnerable in. Make sure that they're getting the resources that they need and partly. It's it's an awareness thing for for clinicians yet as a counter standard. Serve the idea that were this helps us recognize how severe a problem certain mental health issues are right that that this is a surreal lens into that that a traditional clinical trial wouldn't be able to give us right. Yeah i mean that that's basically the idea that maybe you could look at specific groups of people whether it's folks who are suffering from schizophrenia. Depression or you know etc etc and like. Hey the folks in this particular group seem to be having these specific issues. You know like heightened during the pandemic for example so these are people that we need to pay attention to these people that we need to to get help. So yeah that's the basic idea is sense. It's fascinating erin. Thanks for your time

"A product is we wanted to build a place to share interesting and newsworthy articles. And have a place discuss them. So I think if you if you want to talk about the roots of readiness a product released a evolution on top of Lake Slash dodds or or evenly delicious popular. Go pretty taper back there where there's a bunch of stuff on any given day. It's just really interesting engaging and it's a format to to actually discuss it you know another another another kind of even older idea would be. It's like it's like the the the evolution of the forum as a as a as an art form as far as like the the how the. How did I get involved in how to get started so I was? Actually the first employee started there about Six months in roughly and at the time the way got involved I kind of sidelined in or segues segues come into the texting in about fourteen Grad School. Where a friend of mine propose to me? What amounts to being a startup in two thousand and four when startups for take Given the fact that everyone is still recovering from the two thousand crash and so at the time we were just we were trying to solve the problem. We had which was like finding thing finding documents a couple sites nerds and long story short on that it turned out that we ended up going and getting into the first Y combinator batch which is the same batch that was in you know see Steven wants to Hainian. We're in that batch starting and Once short into that summer my startup had failed utterly and I had to freedoms my apartment so it was good friends in Stephen Lexus They moved in and it was about two months later that I was working at read it as well as in my spare time so Komo Suzanne. If I've chosen six my life consisted of get up go to work which was my. Phd Work Komo night. US Cook Dinner do a night shift on read it and and then lather rinse repeat so. I think I was getting four hours of sleep that whole year which is twenty zero magical period of time. We do that and eat garbage. Not Die so just be the same time so so I so here. The process the four hours of sleep a night that coming home doing night shift on red at tell me about that build process about the MVP build for four read. It what you build it using. What were you know what? How did that process go? And this is my Max you really is right before right before I started so the first the first month of Reddit Steve Singlehandedly got together in. MVP that took less than a month build and the original version of reds was actually written in common lists so so y combinator founded by Paul Graham among others programs that big whisper and so it seems like an obvious choice to show show Paul. There's possible to build a modern web APP using I don't like lettuce and so He both that and launched it. I think any read. It was actually one of the first products that that summer to launch. which is just incredible? You know the the company started in June. I think actually live on the twentieth of June. which actually to this day? It has become like the official Birthday and that wasn't ms fairly minimal. So if you think about the breaded.
