"Fishman. Sarah we've talked the word. Theoretical has popped up a lot. How close is to actually being reality like obviously once. We put to humans who i mean. I've watched the video bunch of times. They do definitely seem like real human beings. How close is it to actually being a thing in the place that they are building these hop woods I'm much more conservative than a lot of other people. Our will not one. I think it's so far away. I i think that the technology may be a lot less viable than we think it is. But i just loved that they're trying hold onto. Why do you think it's less viable than we think. It is like feeling that his because people have tried it before because pneumatic transport was abandoned for a reason. And i think that there's a lot of issues in the quality of track that needs to exist. It needs to be really really smooth. I think that there are absolutely major safety issues with this thing. I think that if you're needing to clip into a five point rights hottest like they did for the test. It's not necessarily viable as a public transport option. You're gonna be slowed down by safety checks which in turn means that. The speeds that you're going at you know which in ton means that the time you're saving on travel is just lost in a guy coming through your pod and checking everybody's buckled improperly. So there are a lot of things he that may mean that. It's not really like a great option just yet if yo- talking for city transport you may be slowed down by those safety checks if you're talking for further distanced transport these pods are generally quite small so whereas its case don't know yet one of the most until the bad times one of the most Trafficked travel routes in the world with sydney to melbourne. Does is there an economic case for replacing or at the very least bolstering sydney melbourne route. With something like this as a sarah moran case for. I can tell you. I've looked at the logistics of training it to sydney. You can go overnight and you have to say one of six carriages with a terrible bed and then you get out at like five. Am at at sydney station. For melvin. and i've looked at it. I've looked at it. Sorry many times and i think it's actually me and my partner ran away from open. We were doing long distance. And i was staying in melbourne when the pandemic kind of started and me and my partner jumped on a train we booked a ticket the night before jumped on the train from mobin to sydney and ran away in the night. Oh my god. Did you get the sleeper carriage. Sorry now i'm just no no we actually we. We actually did it during the day so we had to get up at like five. Am wooded it felt better or worse if you had to be five point honda pills. If we were going to thousand kilometers an hour. I would take it. I think that's fun but at the same time. We don't really need a hyperloop for that. We could just build a bullet train. And i'm not really sure why we haven't done that yet. There have been discussions about building. High-speed trains from like new cosso to sydney. And those kind of smaller i guess regional new south wales routes. But there hasn't been much of a plan yet that i know of for sitting which seems insane to me. They've talked about talked about it. But there's no but where's the plan was the funding and was the actual plan like things about milky that the economics aren't there have they acted in my quality of life specifically feel like really tip it over the. I'll put it in a freedom of information. Did you consult on specifically dato. Call me well. I'm glad we solve that problem. So we've got some for on the way huge. Thank on her yard from good games point in a range of other things. Thanks for being back on the program. Thank you one hundred percent. Sure what i did at the end but anyway Ceremony gogi kademi. Always a pleasure to have you back on the shar. Thanks for having meals also and we will be back sometime. Sign place next week from the episode left for the. If you're enjoying the shy make sure you leave a review on whichever podcasting app you happen to encounter on including good old-fashioned spotify which we are now on a big.

"It moved closer to that the moment you open it up something's playing it might have helped absorb people into that that world easier. Maybe I. Think there is a cultural connection that happens with Tiktok that you're a part of something. that you understand the in jokes, the maims are happening and you dip in and out of the Stream which is more akin to what twitter used to feel like. But it's visual and it's using video. I think what you're talking about is a bit like Netflix's have released A. Stop. Watching button. They launched ages ago but now actually on the homepage of Netflix that you can just click the button stop watching you up of done a couple of times and I'm a fan. So I think that idea of being able to flip through the channels rather than looking at all the title Qods maybe you could try and then stopping and not watching anything. I think there's definitely a gap and qube could've filled it but they didn't and we have until December one to watch all of the episodes of Meta House flip. Download this show is what you listen to it is your God to the way can media technology and culture we have Sarah Miranda and Jeremy. Kirk, wake knock Fennell is my name and suddenly of all the big tech companies we tend to talk about the apples and whatnot of the well bought Samsung is one of the most important technology companies in the world and it's Quite a sad on this week Jeremy. Dot Yeah. Equally. Who is the son of the founder of Samsung? So his father founded Samsung in the nineteen thirties and when it was selling dried fish and fruit to China. So Samsung ended up becoming a you know the the largest company in South Korea it's got its chance now everything for membership chips to shipbuilding. To Insurance to entertainment and so yes, his passing Insignificant Away I mean the family, it's been controlled by a family. So which is. Amazingly. Some contributes I think something like twenty percent to South Korea's GDP. So the the company has been very tied to the country and it's it's rising fortunes since the end of the Korean War. Yes, he was not. He was known as the hermit king he rarely he really sparked, but also presided I've a fairly significant change and not just the company but I guess in Eletronics worldwide because Samsung is one of the biggest fine manufacturers amongst other things and millions of Australians, have Samsung phones. Why is it that they went into electronics given the sort of the origin of the family business you? Think. It was just a move to. Where business was growing so like I think about the early nineties, Samsung was up two largest provider of memory chips in the world, and so you think of Samsung and apple is being competitors but SAM supply memory chips to apple phones for years and years and years, and so that also helped fuel its own mobile phone business which is huge but the company has made everything from like flat screen TVs to aircraft engines which is one of the leading are in D. Center is also in south. Korea. The half king is the perfect price far right like then they're not showy ones releasing the press releases about the new technology. They're the ones who are like technology is going here and we'll be right there in lockstep. So. Some of the things that I'm really excited about. With Samsung. They Fund. As you said, a lot of our day, but also accelerate is and and I'm most excited about I'm using facial, which is a cryptocurrency and Samsung. We're going to play it to all of their televisions very shortly, which means that our content distribution networks school bay powered by Blockchain, and I'm super excited about that in the most not possible way. These things error that. The question. But why is it? You think that Samsung doesn't get the same level of fantasy attention that the likes of apple and Google is just because it's not from America. Do you think it's a simple as that? It's possibly that but also I would say that it's part of their brand strategy to not do that because all of the other fancy pants technology innovation companies, they will be happy to be like we've announced a thing and then they'll can it. Twelve months later, if it doesn't work whereas I'm just don't do that. They are consistent or that is all we have time for on the show this week. Huge you Sarah Moran Co founder and CEO Go GEIC Academy lobbied have you back on the show Lovely Dahir Jeremy Cook from Information Security Group.

"But before we move onto that, there was just something you mentioned earlier pay to that I feel like I cannot let the show pass without asking, which is how did they develop nylon like how I long come about through the wall? Well, non think they had started to work on synthetic fibres before, but it was the ability to make parachutes was the thing that kicked on nylon. An wasn't stockings that was that was hugely important, and of course, late onto the hull Cloth Industries that. Dominate all of our clothes on think I'm wearing any natural father today for example, so they. Kick on. But Yeah, look you know wars do catalyze all of this work and we do try to have wars. You know that we have the war on drugs and we have you know different I. Guess at the moment we're in a pandemic and that has certainly aligned things but nothing really focuses the mind. Like having all of your ships being blown up at poll hob surprise aw or bombs being dropped on your house in in London. So you know you understand how that works. It's interesting. You know the money that can be brought to bear has long-term consequences as Sarah said and just just last week Elon Musk was criticizing something about Bernie Sanders view of socialism and Santa's replied that well, mosque has been the beneficiary of of means of dollars of government funding and that's how it works as Sarah said. Making Silicon Valley and other places is not as simple as actually just making a block of land and saying, Hey, this is going to be silicon. Valley. It's also apart from government funding is also things like the educational institutions being there You know went off court bosses in Silicon Valley just listening on conversations as people talking about chip design and new CPU's this kind of thing just on the boss it's a hot. You know environment where all of that is happening the one place and it's just not easy to just make another copy of. It I mean I guess it's hard not to look at the parallels between a world war and a world facing a pandemic these big all encompassing crises that sort of focus the attention of governments and I guess what I'm vaguely curious tonigh- Sarah is are there lessons that we can learn from how governments reacted an unfunded things will turn that might help us pap to build something positive I used the term very tentatively out of this this current crisis that we're living through Sarah dig goodness I. Hope. So there's such an opportunity to really I mean governments are gonNA, have they already making large investments in ways we have never seen before and so the rule book is out the window and we can you know. There's an opportunity for governments to think about what they're going to spend on. and. Why not look to the past and see what benefits Ofcom from such massive spending and do that here I think. A stroller isn't in a good position to be able to do that and I really hope that's that's what's going to come of it. I think the federal and state governments are all thinking about that. There's definitely advocacy groups across Australia who was saying yeah, we could do this. Now. It's just about well is the political social. To bring that about and I think that's what's going to play out over the next six months. It'll be quite quick that will say will the money go to new opportunities to build a future you know that Australia could bay the next Silicon Valley what do you think that? So, coming a lot of these things could have happened without a war. On, Stein had predicted that you can have nuclear fission people were working on calculating machines without native crack codes but I I think that there's a role for pure research and I really. Fear that the cots constant constant of things like the Iro in Australia have made the research being done. Often you look back at that that the mother of all demos and all of the technologies including things like video conferencing and collaborative editing. These were just pure as pure research that no one really knew if I would have turned into a product and what's amazing is how many of them are now part of our daily lives you just can't predict when you do research where it's going to end up and I think it's important to have funding for pure research with no immediate commercial objective because you don't know it could be the next nylon. And also paid one of the things that I think people might not necessarily be aware of how much the. CYBERNETICS can be tracked back to this time as well. I mean the idea of `electronic computers initially, of course, they were calculating machines but this idea that you could have a flexible computer that could be programmed to do anything because at first those first computers just basically ran a punch. I. Actually had no memory toll but that they were ideas right back then that we could have thinking machines that could do logic could do symbolic logic, and of course, that is now something it's taken a long time, but it is something we now have. Automatic. Language translation and things that would've been completely unimaginable back then. So yeah, these technologies maybe pile straightaway. Maybe they do take What is it seventy five years before they actually payback but if you've got a long enough memory know it's just amazing how things change imagine if William English and Doug, Engelberg could say what we're doing right now with videoconferencing recording over the Internet I just would not believe it but. We can we can drop off from where we are today run back to those guys. We have an opportunity if you say the pandemic as a war or at least one of those, once in a one hundred year events, you know we're at the time where we're going to see what what children one hundred years down the track will be benefiting from from how we choose to handle it. So from live in lockdown I, tell you. Just give me some the hang on. Guys we actually ended up the show on a positive and we somehow did that VIRA World War. That's an achievement. Sarah Moran is the CO founder and see go academy and she joins us from downhill but thank you so much for joining us on. This is Sarah thanks for having me paid him..

"Online payment system have music streaming. They also make movies or invest in movies. So it's a huge company and what the executive order actually says, it's not quite clear it's going to in forty five days it's going to ban transactions with them. So what on Earth does that mean does that mean using them does it mean doing payments through the? No one really knows for sure and I don't think they can ban it. But maybe what they'll do is they'll block the apps they worried about top to talk and we chat being used to try daughter about Americans into China so they forcing a sale of Tiktok for example but yeah, it's really puzzling by the trump administration yet again. You say something that came out of the White House that he's unclear. Strange. She thinks that the sensible people standing around to review the stuff. On, holiday that day it is a notable reminder that ten cent is truly one of the biggest and most diversified tech and media companies in the world which I think is perhaps not something the way super cognizant of Australia Sarah. I think in generally in general, we rarely think about who is funding the products that we use, and that we buy also the headquarters of those companies I've been banging on about for years that you know most of the tech warriors from San Francisco but actually that is divest applying to different places around the world and. For from an Australian perspective, I don't necessarily think that diversity is a bad thing. Because it means that we do have that breadth of. You know that breadth of participation in what is global landscape so It's a busted out the popcorn to watch and see what happens but. Oh goodness, and and to be fair like for me I, find it hard because. I look at it and Mike. This is racist right? Like this is just like China I'll sign an executive order at least that's how the Punto takes it, and so what worries me about the consequences? Yes, it is about will it cut off games and technology, but also wish that saying the American public I think that's That's what I am still scratching my head about. You. Are Listening to the voices of Sarah Moran from Gauguin Academy, and pay mocks from access informatics and got pack mock penelas. DC's download this show. You'll go to the week in media technology and culture, and this week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the end of the Second World War and it's really hard to pinpoint another point in history where we had a big acceleration of technological development, the world series. There are so many things that we do today we use today that you can try back. World Water and what are the developments that came out of world water? The probably doesn't get enough attention paid I mean. Obviously computers, which we which would develop to crack the codes that was used. The Ignatz calculating machines had been used for longtime for calculating angles of bombs and bomb. Dropping them from plans, always terrible uses of technology. But as I think if gets out, teaches us anything and it can teach us a lot. It shows that technology can be used for evil as well as good. Radio really kicks along up until Van Communications had been very difficult and use radio meant that on the ground. Troops could talk to each other instantaneously. Are. Right. I was developed to track planes and to guide things like assist flying missiles, safeguarding missiles, which led onto all sorts of applications in in. Traffic and so on. But I think so important. I'm obviously the big one is the nuclear bomb the nuclear bomb was what really ended the war particularly with Japan It was a huge project. You know the the government in the US brought together the best minds, the best science and I think if walls do anything, it aligns countries objectives and it means that money can be spent. The best scientists can be brought to bear. It was a huge pro A. At its peak employed one, hundred, thirty, thousand dollars, the official Neymar, it was the development of substitute materials, and of course this then you know led to the nuclear power industry other things that had strange side effects are writer, which was the development of the Magnetron, which was a way to develop high frequency high power, and that led directly onto the product that we will use to heat up called pizza. From the couple of days ago, the microwave oven that recess ship slow slightly after the war, there was a hugely secret project that was the development of the magnetron was as secret as the nuclear program that was so critical to be able to see way planes were so lots and lots of things on and of course, penicillin, which was used to treat all of the soldiers sexually transmitted diseases. I shouldn't laugh because obviously, it was a very serious thing. I mean. I think one of the first things I find fascinating about the history of these nights just areas that often they're things developed with a certain purpose. That in practical law off to the end of a war, we find all kinds of unexpected ways of using the development. Sarah's it. Anything that stands out to you is being perhaps one of the more surprising developments out of that period that is still a part of laws today Sarah may it's silicon. Valley. People around the world. Oh, we need to be the next Silicon Valley. That's how we're going to do our our tech neck Silicon Valley and we'll get all these vacancies and entrepreneurs and we'll we'll make that happen. But what people don't understand is none of that happened without the precursor of the spending in defense and as as pay despite to like this alignment of shed goals around innovation and what that could look like. That's what created Silicon Valley. Don't WanNa make it an incentive. We shouldn't NATO war to bring that out every but but that is one of the things that I think is really underappreciated by countries that are trying to replicate what happened in America at least on that, it came from an era that that really was quite a long time ago and that we're still benefiting from today I do absolutely WanNa talk about that idea of whether or not. We can have that acceleration without obviously millions of people dying and national conflict. I definitely have that conversation..

"You'll go to the week in media technology and Culture Mark Finales my name I'm joined by Sarah Moran from Geic Academy and Paint Them Alex with pack and access informatics and you might have missed this but the inventor of the computer mouse died very recently ninety one years old he's name was William English as soon as I saw that Arthur remember thinking it is amazing. That, we're still using the computer mouse like after all of these years, it's still a thing that is such a Cape Out of the way most of us interact with technology data. Is William English worked with Doug. Engelberg at the Stanford Research Student. California and they did an amazing demonstration in December not sixty eight. That's come to be known as the mother of all take demos. Now, this is a time when computers were punch cards or. Printing terminals and things like that and they showed for the first time a graphical computer with documents that you could add it and the thing that English apparently came up with get sick with billing a list is the now the mousy made was a big wooden block but moved around at had a ball underneath ahead three buttons on it, and then the in the demonstration they showed editing where I would select words and copy and paste and all that. So I think it was like totally from the future and I think the mouse which they came back with back then even though we've moved. On a long way, there's something I think really direct about manipulating the point with something down on the desk you know your hands are on the cable would you think that maybe the mouse would have gone away and we would be using touch screens old something else like that. But really the problem we've touched grains is that you fat fingers get in the way of what you're clicking on. So we do use touch grains because the targets had to be really big. The mouse has lived on and I still even track pets a very good these days on laptops us to log a mouse. Sarah like looking at the picture of it. Then there are a few pictures of the world's mass on the Internet. It's a really luxurious looking device would grinds really nice. The lack of on it's really nice. I'm thinking why don't we do wouldn't mice more often that looks really losses are glad you said that because that was my first thought was when I looked at this outside, that is curate obviously. I won't. Want it is. It is beautifully design which I think might speak to why these things are. Still in use you know the person who created it in the first place really thought about you know what? What are the needs not just physically but aesthetically I think about how I would make a mouse in you woodwork. I'll tell you what it wouldn't look like that. This is a pace. Pedo white vaccine, make it in the first place where did it come from? Well interesting this this project was funded by NASA is it was thin and the air force and another mysterious group for the future or something or other it was hugely influential. So its military money, maybe they were looking at how to control bombs or something or other, but people who saw the Demo include Alan Kay? Who went on to invent object oriented programming and Van Damme who worked on hypertext linking in the Internet, and of course, Xerox built the alto computer that influenced the job to make the Macintosh for this project leaves on as will with watching the video which is up on youtube download. This is what you're listening to it easier to the week in media technology and culture might is my name and Enormous concession in the gaming world over the last couple of weeks we many people claiming that games like League of legends, clash of clans, and of course, the big one that every person under the age of thirteen is seemingly obsessed with fortnight could be banned in the United States except it's not quite that simple. It involves Donald Trump and I very important technology company on tencent. Sarah Walk me through it. Donald Trump is going through a process with relationship with technology. Let's just say. I, love diplomatic buddies. Look he is obviously in a trade war with China, and that is being reflected online. He. Also, at the same time has had a group of tiktok as closing, lots of mischief to his upcoming political campaign. So I think is a massive distraction. He has come out and said, right? Well, we're going to ban I'm going to do an executive what the thing that I loved to sign things. WILL START OF? A TIKTOK. Okay, we're going to ban these things and so everyone was like. Well, hang on they are they've got their hands in a Lotta pies like. Do you understand, this means very many popular games and. The rate of ten cents in America is actually quite lodge tens out perhaps he didn't, and a lot of that is being walked back now. But at the time, I tell you what it was also a very exciting time because every other game development company was like Oh, this could be quite for the taking. So at this stage. Tent earns way chats they are in. A I think Tiktok as well, and the idea is that trump is trying to cut them off at an as so he's signing the executive order but I guess the thing you were saying Sarah that really caught people's attention and certainly that got people upset is this idea that tencent have a stake in these companies Beta? It's a huge company. Yeah. It's it's not just the products that they own fully there an investor in many products the market caps about six, hundred, billion dollars us. And they straddle all sorts of industries including video games as you said that also on the unreal engine, which is used for many many games. So the venture capitalist, I had social media in the form of way chat, which has a billion monthly active users. It's huge and soul the Mingji quo recently said that. If they do band way chat actually heard apple because a lot of people will not buy new fines if they do way chat. They have an.

"The the the recognition. The face recognition is now being baked into camera sensors. Security cameras and things so this technology is extremely wads bread. It's it's An individual can run up. Vice recognized. Originals aquatic easy and quite easily, and this companies like clearview I who have built a database of I'm sure you've talked about this before, but they built a database of millions of faces and their names, which they've ripped from social media sites from the publicly available websites, and they built this big database and I believe it has been to place forces around the world including federal police in Queensland and South Australia. So this is something that affects us directly here in Australia Sarah what our relationship with facial recognition technology bay like if you designing laws, what a year as a citizen comfortable with! As a citizen I'm comfortable about US having a conversation about this as opposed to. The law paper will deal with that. I think that's that's the danger. Right we think the main people who speak about this stuff, a digital rights activists and to your average person. They don't want to be digital rights activists. That's not that's not a career ambition for most people. It's a tough slog, and so for the average person. We need to be talking about this in our harms. We need to be talking about it. You know on the rig it just. Just needs to be something that we have a conversation about and then policy it shouldn't base that the government make a policy, and then everything falls into line behind it way as individuals, citizens should be taking action and demonstrating what we care about and having the low following that because I think that's the danger riot. You've gotTA hape of policy nodes in a room who aren't up to speed with what we feel comfortable with his family as a school is. All these different things and they're gonNA. Make policies that will outdate very quickly and not stay up to date with social mores, and I think that's I don't know it's going to suck. All right. Here enough. Take. The data. What is what do you think our relationship with respect to recognition technology should look like. Well I actually I think the whole face mask. Thing is really interesting, because it has normalized the ability to disguise you Faisal. Cover your face in public and and. Maybe, this social distancing is something that should go forward into the future I feel like we're getting less calls the. Powder covert, and and maybe shaking hands, always a bad idea, but but look if you wanna go to a demonstration, I think the message is clear. I've been demonstrations myself. Where the have been people filming the crowd, and it's clear what they doing trying to suck up all of the people who went along, and you can bet that information is being used for. For ill whether it's for election targeting whether it's for I, don't know I would bit, but yeah, it's such an easy thing to sweep a camera around a demonstration and recognize all the people there and then use that information for for bad things. I think the fact of the matter is we? HAVE WE WALK OUT IN PUBLIC DAME? We Guide to be recognized. The, problem of course is if you disguise your face, you then become targets like people who run tour browser at home to protect their privacy. Then they become recognized as someone who is trying to hide, and that's just as damaging download. The show is what you're listening to. It is your God to the wake in media, technology and culture. We are joined by Peter Mocks software developer from access informatics and found found rather of Academy Sarah Moran and date fakes stunningly convincing. Artificial faces and facebook have just released a database one hundred thousand date fakes. To teach. You how to spot them Sarah what exactly is going on? So when you will looking online and you see a video as a human, you recognize as a date fake. Algorithms spot, and so they've notoriously bad at working out the difference between a human you know, a fake and a real human video, and so what facebook is doing is saying well. Let's let's get better at this. Let's build up muscle and so they have the largest collection update type videos, and so the training the I to be able to split it just like a human would, and what's really fascinating is the techniques you would think they would use to spot a date fag. What proven not to work, so you know like? Different types of technical information in the video and Training around that they're actually trying to train the I to think more like a human in the way that we as a human spot areas, it has been talked about for longtime this idea of the uncanny valley something that looks stunningly close to a real human vice, but there's just something a little bit. The Human Brian Goes. ooh, that's nasty like that. There's like a psychological sort of actually makes you feel a bit sick exactly. Is that how this is working, or is it working on a different level? Yes so the fakes up pretty good now and at a cursory glance. Videos of Barack, Obama, saying something ridiculous, and of course have been used in pornography, so it looks like a celebrity is in a pornographic film or something, but there's something weird, and currently the flaws things like flickering around the edges of the face or The background looks a bit weird, because the whole thing is about tuning making a face, look like another face so that it's kind of a loop of artificial intelligence face recognition, so a person can pick them, but of course it's so easy to create these vikes ending and election running up to an election. It could be extremely damaging to have say. Joe Biden, or we could bring into Australia appearing to say something really objectionable that could then spread varley through social media. People don't concentrate if they want to believe what they're seeing. That may just say Yep, that's what he said that I. Don't like it I'm not gonNa vote for that person, so facebook is trying to improve the automatic recognition of deep fakes, and that's why I've been running this competition with one hundred thousand. Dave fake videos so far. People who've been building recognizes for it. The Best I can do is sixty five percent accuracy, and that's of course not good enough to let them run automatically to flag date fakes, and it does seem like the best of those. Those, are using the the artifacts that we recognize like the flicker rule, the funny backgrounds and things, and of course defect technology is getting better and better and eight. Eventually, those out effects will go away so it is going to be a difficult problem into the future I mean and the end of the day I think people have really got to be careful, too closely, evaluate where they sourced something, and is that a trustworthy source? Can I believe even this very realistic looking video, and at the moment we're all on a learning curve and I. Guess The the lesson learned over the last few years. People just pay attention to what they raid on the Internet. That's a quick look. DO I agree with this headline. Does this headline align with my values? Great Senate on, and I think one of the interesting points. The technology officer facebook say basically date. Vikes, currently, not a big issue, but we let the. Few used to not be caught flat-footed, and I have to say that is bang on when it comes to facebook's recent experience, and I do think it's I do think it's worthwhile that they're investing in it. Why is this particularly issue for facebook? Though Sarah? It's the gateway to the Internet for so many people. In developing nations, that's that's the browser like that's actually how they get their information. And so..

"Listening to the incredibly smart voices of Bogle Technology reporter with the. Science Unit and Sarah Moran the CO founder of Academy Mock Pinellas my name, and this is the show where we wrap up the week in media, technology and culture, and specifically about facebook back. In Australia, major media organizations like nine which of course encompasses the Fairfax newspaper university-based is a news court. NEWSCORP rather lost is probably the void I'm going with a really interesting case Arrow which could have massive impacts on the world of online comments? Yes, so. So these newspapers in strategy in news, Corp and some others have lost appeal, and the appeal essentially means that outlets remain liable in Australia full. What rating site in the facebook comments on the pages? So if he purchased a article about anyone about Donald, trump, dister, their or celebrity or somebody else and somebody defames them, says something against him in the comments section that is potential liability for the news outlet themselves even though they did not write the comment. Kids, see the like the domino effect of this in my head is massive like Sarah's this pretty much the end of comment sections. SEMANTICS, someone I've been a page moderator for massive facebook pages and the shear cost involved in moderating those comments because I did I have definitely been in the trenches motivating those comments before for major brands in Australia and just it's so expensive that that money that it's going to cost to moderate comments, and you can't turn the comments off it's. It's not the same on your own. Own Platforms. You have full control over how you manage. People engage with your content once it's off your platform. You are at the hands of Mark Bag, and so I'm sure. Someone thinks that mock will care, and they'll implement something special for Australia, but well look I. Don't think so. My money's not on that happening by the way mark will care is going to be my spinoffs. It is an interesting point that there are other platforms. I'm thinking. You know and things like that where you can turn off, comments would that have solved the problem? If functionality of that nature existed for this particular case, well, there are remarkably few tools to Sarah pointed out four news outlet so people running public facebook pages. You can't turn off comments. On a page you can, however on facebook groups, which is an interesting distinction, you can put some filters on profanity filters and similar things you can, of course delayed or hide people's comments, but that's only after the repaired, so would certainly be helpful if facebook were to give. News publishes greater tools in light of this hearing. Sarah said whether they will is another question. It just really complicates things four news outlets. Of course they want a presence on facebook. Because so many people are on facebook, and sometimes these comments sections can. The heinous places where no one should spend time, but sometimes they can actually be quite healthy place for discussion and building community, and that's not something that a lot of news publishes. Want willing to step away from that suddenly a really complicated finding and one that actually could probably guarded the High Court, so we may see more to come on this. Yes, there is a part of this about fully understand area, and maybe I've just misread. It will go wrong, but I don't completely understand how they've landed on the meteoroid and being responsible for the comments. If the venue for those comments is facebook like why isn't facebook sort of being held responsible for it? It's a good question I think there's. Just a lot more established legal frameworks around suing news publishes and in the judgment. The judges suggested that the news outlets had encouraged all facilitated comments by having setting up a facebook page where people could comment a lot of the discussion around these types of liabilities is with US somebody can be counted as a news publisher facebook. Really resist characterization, and there's not a lot of case law at this point about whether a platform like facebook can be held liable for defamatory commentary. We have seen however Google be held liable for defamatory search results as it suddenly a area of complex legal standing in the united in Australia at the moment disease remove responsibility from the comment to themselves, because I the comment to themselves still available as an option for defamation I'm. One, hundred percent clear on that, but certainly there's. Way More value to be gotten out of suing a news publisher. The probably go a little more funding behind them to extract. A settlement. Then a individual comments are useful driver in the Algorithm Ontai like the more comments you get on, an article was something of that nature does have a positive impact on on how likely that continues to come up in in people's faith, right Oh absolutely, and there's also the relational value you know if your aunt comments on something. You're GONNA pay more attention than if it just appears in your knees fade. It's a way of us. Connecting and contextualising information. There's a lot of information in the world and the reason facebook has been so successful is because it's made it more human. Being able to connect people. We know with the information that we want to talk about communities It's played a really big role. We've got. I've got communities in Samoa where that's. This is the gateway to the Internet so this becomes really really important, but I think. I have questions around. What does this mean for the media? If it's an additional cost to newsrooms when saying newsrooms across Australia losing all of this stuff, you know why brands equally is to be held accountable. Is Is Sarah's Sunday blog going to be held accountable for the comments. He made on the stories that I post. You know it's a lot of complexity there again. I think people just don't actually think through the consequences. Of, decisions like this. I've been meaning to talk to you about that loss blog. I'm hearing from my voice. Download.

"Donald trump has been cold the very first twitter president he has wielded the social media platform to command reshape, and frankly confound the news agenda fees now so this week on download this show what happens when trump twitter go to war? Plus someone defames you in a facebook comment soup facebook. The person themselves all the news organization. He posted the article that the person commented on in the first place. Well, apparently, it's the last one. Raisins that I promise, we will explain and space the final cashier. We've entered a golden age for spaceflight with billionaire, Elon Musk spice company, taking humans to the International Space Station, but what are the knock on effects of a corporate space industry, all that and much more coming up. This is your guide to the week in media, technology and culture. My night, these Marc Fennell and welcome to download this shy. Joining us from Melvin She's kind of go GEIC Academy Sarah Moran Welcome back I'll thanks Maka really appreciate it and Aerial Bugaboo from the science unit so they'd have you back on the show. Thanks for having me mock aerial. Donald Trump's dot will with Toyota. Well will battle I. Don't know how to characterize exactly, but has taken some of its first steps true. Not Exactly. Curtailing trump's presence on the platform bought just adding some. Mockus to it, so trump in his as he is want to do started tweeting violence towards people protesting the murder of George Floyd in the United States, he said phrases like when the looting stocks the shooting starts, which is a direct hocken back to previous violence against the United. States and twitter put a warning label on it, which suggested that they tweet broke the. The platforms rules against glorifying violence, calling for violence, but that they were not willing at that point to remove the tweet because of the trump, being the president of the United States and also for News Value Sarah. Is there any sense of whether that would even be possible for them to take this rule and make it work retroactively like maybe go back into. The tweets funny JEN's. We're in a time. Where how do we put context around? When something's been tweeted and that's even still relevant five minutes I think. Doing anything retroactively would just have you constantly pedaling the bike of keeping up with what's happening in two thousand twenty, so even if it would technically possible I doubt, they would be a human willing to do it, so that's where we are. How did they land on this approach to do to deal with misinformation on the platform? It's a good question, I think still really yet to get the full play by play from what happened inside twitter. Twitter as a platform has been dealing with accusations that it's allowed. Misinformation White supremacist trolling to flush for many many years now that it hasn't taken strong enough steps, and it's hard to say exactly what the tipping point was time with trump and his tweets, because of course, since since time immemorial at this point, trump has been tweeting. Inflammatory content on the platform. New at times had a bit of a play by play I think there's certainly a lot of internal pressure company like twitter from its employees who opt people living in the United States, dealing with the results of trump's tweets that the company needed to step up and do more. I'm interested to see how plays out long-term Jack Dorsey. The found of twitter Finley has stood firm on this point so far of course, a lot of people want to register remove trump's account completely. As a way to deal with this, and it doesn't look like twitter going to take. Drastic steps at this point. See I always find that we'd because if you and we've done this on the show before, so if you go into the of the terms and conditions aerial, he has broken the terms and conditions in like a number of times i. what's what's they raising keeping him on? Despite that I mean I have to express some sympathy for twitter at this point because trump. Is the president of the United States same kind of incomprehensible that you would remove the account of somebody like that. Even what he says is a direct cause. Violence is racist is all the things that we can accuse trump of doing tweeting and being, but it is strong, such a strong president to remove a public figure of that stature. You could argue I can see the value on both sides of removing it and leaving it up and I you know it's it's just such a tough one at this point when trump's tweets are inflammatory and potentially causing violence against his own people. Maybe this is the tipping point, but. There are a better legal scholars and best. Minds and historians of democracy to weigh in then me, I think at this point the big problem I have, he's the eighth most colored account on twitter. I'm sorry. Twitter's been making money off. The content that Donald Trump has been producing for a long time to turn around and say actually doesn't suit us. The accounts that have existed that follow him. They have monetize that all of us who use twitter. They make money off us, and they helped raise trump you know like whether or not we fuller trump where a part of that ecosystem and so I don't have sympathy. mark. Montero was having conversations with Jack about this in two thousand six day when trump got elected. So he's a prominent advertising. Slash design grew out of San Francisco. I guess tends to represent some sort of a conscience for San Francisco. I don't know how to explain it and so often call people out and have backing from base as many others. I saw the tweet that he did because. Some vase locked it and it's like you guys created this. You just didn't think far enough ahead to think through your own consequences, so I mean Jack Scott a bucket of money. And yet he's still. He's monetize. Sorry I. Don't know how to put it. It's all full of the money was trump's reaction to it? He was not thrilled. He was not happy. He in fact issued an executive order which attempted in some ways to restrict. Protections from social media, companies protections against liability four tweets that might be defamatory or illegal in some way, and this gets into the Legal Wade's on in the United States, there's something section two, hundred, thirty, which essentially shields companies like facebook twitter, other social media platforms from being liable for the content that is hosted on their platforms. So that's why if somebody is defamed on facebook. You still have to sue the person who wrote the tweet all the. Manager of the facebook group and you can't sue facebook itself or Macabre himself. So this section to thirty is a really long standing piece of legislation over the very controversial one and trump's executive orders attempts to walk it back, but the best judge rating legal opinions of as executive order. It really is quite ineffectual economy by executive order. Create a new interpretation of a piece of law. If they actions taken onto the executive order, they could certainly be challenged in court and another interesting thing that people have pointed out. Is that trump himself benefits more than anyone from section two hundred thirty I mean hey, because these platforms like twitter and facebook have been such a free offer speech for so long private companies hosting. Racist speech violent speech offensive speech all forms all things he participates in. He's been allowed to continue on these platforms without too much risk and without too much control Sarah. What do you think happens next after this I mean obviously there's been a war of words which always happens with trump. What what do you think likely? He's going to play out for twitter. There's still a opportunity for more to be done from twitter itself and I think. We're starting to see similar actions coming out of other major social media platforms. that. The, employees have to put up with this at the end of the day. Well, it's actually interesting to look at facebook because what trump tweeted you know when the looting stocks shooting starts direct cough of violence against. Protesters participating the motor of and yet another unarmed black man in the United States by police, facebook allowed that to stop and it still the without any. Cover with sensitivity filter that twitter put on it and Mark Zuckerberg has also been on a phone call with trump recently the arbiter of truth. FACEBOOK is on a phone call with the person. They are sensibly meant to police the speech of so that's a pretty complex. Little phone call right there and in recent hours, even a variety of facebook employees have come out voice dismay with how the company's handling Donald Trump's presence on the platform, and what he says, some have even resigned in protest. It looks like so this is one to watch play out, because of course, facebook has really resisted getting characterized as the arbiter of truth despite partnering with Fat Check Organizations Around the world to sort of bring back some coherence to the platform trump's presence, their finale remains completely free. No, we'll get to facebook. Don't you worry download? This show is what you're listening to. You're listening to the incredibly smart voices of Bogle Technology reporter with the.

We've underwrite old pickle and in two thousand six decided to invest another holiday chalet way that we can make safer him. And it'd be a bolt hole that we could have some respect as a family. It was either that or we'd never ever be able to go on holiday. Get an our lives. You know what I will say. I can only imagine the stress that must've cost around that time so I'm very happy that you got this little place that said I just realized you've sent to Sima. Goes podcast Oh cast so it can only go down. That see. This place is in Cornwall. And it's on a site called Penn Hale and bracken she says which is in the Reader's digest book. How where does that because she also has that same rediscovered? We'd be that I have but a good book. The sites is the oldest Krisztian worshiping place in the country. You can see from our window. It's the Church of Saint Pattern the patron saints of Cornwall. It is nestled in the sand dunes. The oldest Cornish Celtic Cross also on the site and they are listed in the Doomsday Book. Doc took a very long story short. This place is huge. An ancient burial ground with a paranormal history of its own right and we've had some strange experiences in our little Shallow over the years first of all set the scene on this ethanol place. One evening. The MR was rolling in from the sea over the dunes. And this happens often it can happen fast and the dunes just vanish. That sounds amazing. There's no I was out the front cleaning the windows and our eldest son George who was about twelve at the time was messing about in the dunes. owns out front. We head singing. It stopped us both at the same time. It was a haunting song. It was a man's voice. He sounded elderly and he was singing. In in a language that was not English it sounded like some sort of flu playing along with the voice. It was coming from the coming from in the mist and it was rarely it really creepy fat. Bloodiest bloody is Jesus. Jones said the language could well have been cornish a language. That is sadly dying out. Now we haven't seen anyone but I can see that it could be in some Giza singing. It was a you had to be there kind of event explaining it doesn't do the creep factor justice you've done very pretty well given the creep factor. I'll be perfectly honest. My first paranormal experience was probably about a year. Later or younger son has the double room as he needs the space and as a terrible sleeper sleeper George and I shared the room with two single beds. A My husband sleeps on the sofa bed in the living room Georgian. I chatted for a bit and went off to sleep fine. The next morning the pitches being on the wall by my bed was standing upright on. Its side on a tally bedside table. I said between the two single beds it was standing between me and George between tweeted heads. Now one of three things could have happened. One I will cook in my sleep. Stood on my bed to get it and put it there myself. What I had no recollection tall and hadn't done so before or since two George got out of his bed conned all over me to get the pitcher and balanced it with my knowledge in brackets? He vehemently Bentley denies this. I would've oh cop and he was genuinely genuinely freaked out by this number three. It was paranormal than the. It must have took a steady hand to balance it and it was jarringly out of place. This was really unsettling as it seems so deliberate later that year I woke up in the middle of the night and setup the light was on and I saw a Yo I sort of cushion that are being pulled onto the floor between the beds pulled up by one corner and hanging a few inches inches above the ground it was moving upwards. I could see it being pulled. That is what I absolutely saw. A rational mind would say like my husband that I dreamt tempted. I can only say what I saw when I stood up it was back on the floor again. I struggle to go back asleep trying to rationalize what I'd seen a couple of years later out sitting sitting in the living room it was late in the boys would embed and I flicked on my phone to look at the photos. Taken that down the beach it was set to take a photograph mode and though through the screen I could see my thoughts and another foot facing mind. It was a man's large foot it was bare and it had a hair relate attached to it. I shut my head off because whoever was attached to the foot and the leg would have been standing directly in front of me and facing me actually standing over me it was about eight inches away from my foot. There was nobody there by husband was sitting in the kitchen. Having a beer was no explanation for this and I know what I saw and was totally gobsmacked when I look back at my camera at a gun it ties in with the history of the area to it would've been a thriving community back then. I continue to open up the shelley alone on on my own in March and close it in October and the place is fairly desolate as in early March. Nobody else is on the park as it's not open to the public till Easter I am not afraid. They're in brackets. Fill your of a couple of days away. All by myself is too strong but if I think hard about it I can give myself the willies. I was looking good a couple of weeks ago and the DVD player sprang into life by itself. I hadn't even had the tally on on the remote was nowhere naming also all the lights went out whilst I was watching coaching. Ghost Adventures in brackets needed my channel eighty for that one. Hello the very. And if you don't know in America It's a product for women who have a little bit of we. Let's just say the pitcher the cushion and the fought. I honestly cannot explain away. Believe me I would like to be able to let you know if anything else happens. Please do she says I'll attach a photo to give you some idea of where it is and she has a test. A photo on its blood. Ludi bleak beautiful but bleak are put on the facebook group at some point hope. This wasn't too long. Love the PODCAST. Happy Halloween to you and all your lovely listeners. Sarah from Birmingham. ps this is what it was. This is what it is. And she's pulling which also throw upon their to about about saint parents old charging pattern poff. Yes that's amazing honestly. It's almost like what is that book and fill with Harry Potter and know how you know Harry Potter that Daniel Radcliffe. What's it called the morning black if you've read the woman in black and if you haven't read the woman in black reader it's genuinely spine chilling but that sounds like a very area doesn't missed blow in and Oh yes levaula and don't get me wrong at absolutely shies myself myself if it was there but it does sound like a fantastically replace? Yes yes yes yes please yes please. Well what a lovely series of stories they really were being genuis. Go by all of them.

"Sarah Moran from Geico. Geico academy. Rosamund journalist with first draft maximum my name and thousands of Uber drivers around the world in the U K, the US and apparently on a strategy in Brazil have gone on struck this week to demand bit a pain conditions. There are awesome for number of things, but generally sort of describe broadly, proper working conditions so things like proper insurances. Dr is take on all of their own expenses when they become an overdrive, but they obviously pay for their car. They have to pay for the maintenance and upkeep of their car there and causing surender the petrol and the really clever thing about that. On. It was pot is that when there is no demand. They drive is costing them. Absolately nothing hoods very close to their also asking for some really basic things like it'd be of transparency around the way the platform works. So motivated drivers say they really have very little understanding about actually how phys calculated how reasonable and fair. If a I author is face. A R. People. So interestingly the strike happened. Also the day after the Victorian government started publishing a whole bunch of submissions that were made into an inquiry into the gig economy that they launched early this year. And you know, some of these wasn't to be and it wasn't just Uber drivers. There was people like from food door and these food delivery months as well. But you know, a lot of these drivers said the minute they make a complaint there bogged from the platform, and they have no one to contact. They describe it as being kind of like dealing with a ghost. So yeah, they're asking for a whole lot of basic. Work work benefit, some sort of safeties and job securities, which are all traditionally the things that unions have one for workers. But of course, the gig economy is a completely union phrase on I think for two reasons it's kind of hard to organize a union with a workforce like that that is kind of so transient little these companies have been very deliberate in discouraging unionization of the workers as well. I will say that that point about facelessness is really interesting because that is that is a mode in which a lot of companies operate where it's they because I don't have to have a fight unless they doing something like a big IPO will the doing a product launch or trying to get money often they can very easily as an industry just vice it's an app radio blog post and not really engage. And I I guess I think because it was timed around the stock market launch. I expected more response from them. It also sort of speaks to this. The line principle that you guys have brought up this notion that gig economy so to sit somewhere between it sits somewhere between a funded hobby and a job. What do you think the laws around it maybe on so much? What do you think? What do you think the the rights transaction should be like how much he's raising -able given it is such a transient workforce here. Well, I actually signed up to Abe driver when I was starting my company because I saw benefit in may being able to pretty much turn on a job and turn it off as suited may. And so, you know, we've gone from this kind of recruitment angle where everyone's nice and happy and a look we'll pay you really well now to the underside to say, well, actually, he is what you don't get. And that's the tile that went out telling I think in the US in particular, you don't get healthcare, which is tied to your job. And I think that's a much deeper issue globally. But every every ride I take here is subsidized by venture capitalists money. And so the the cost.

"And if you go onto the his website and have a look at them. I mean, some of them are these quite young looking guys who knows where and how he found the me found them all very quickly. But it's very interesting. If you look at how he is disseminating or how the potties disseminating its policies and pitches because it they literally all following a script. And so he's obviously found gone out there and found people who are willing to rate a script, you know, record a video with the background that he's presumably provided, and it's that is very very clever way of just reaching the entire country of finding people in every single area. And. Making use of their networks and getting the same information out. So it's very clever. I think you know, the majority of these candidates don't have a hoping he'll of being elected. But what they are very successfully doing is spreading the word of Clive Palmer in the U, I pay Clive. I mean to step back from misinformation than fact sharing for second in terms of how different political bodies, a handling this election is anybody doing anything and just want to focus on the methodology because because you get into trouble. If you start talking about the politics of anybody doing anything in terms of using the internet well to disseminate MRs or anywhere on that spectrum. Clive Pomme is he probably used Facebook ads to find those people in the phone. Actually, this is true. I've I was working we've some ABC journalists. And yet they found that a lot of those people had historically liked he's page. So yeah. And it's interesting that what he's done is. He's created a truly national brand. And that's something that a lot of the other parties have struggled to be Stu mainly because they represent quite diverse electorates already. But he's based on the fact that he can go great. I'm just gonna do the same thing everywhere every time, and it's I don't know who he strategists. Aw, probably them through Facebook too. But. Much more, correct? Now, the people operating really successfully on Facebook. And once again, it's nothing new bit Pauline Hanson. She wrecks up. She posted this amazing video yesterday that was these bizarre sort of reunite restore story being reunited with someone who'd written her a letter when she was in jail, and there were seventy thousand views on that. So it's if you can do there's tooled crowd Tango, which allows you to kind of monitor Facebook to a certain extent and I had look yesterday. And I think the top three accounts in a stray Leah. Were Pauline Hanson, and then Fraser running into of interaction in the past six weeks or something point hands? Pulling Hanson phrase running like topping the list this. So they're definitely some politicians who really get how to use it. When you talk about engagement. You know, it really is replicating the success of talkback radio. You know, it's like put something out and wait for them to come and flip to it. And really feel like people think that that idea of being heard is great. I get to have my say, and that can be represented in pure commentary and engagement in up go up go that engagement algorithm on Facebook. Few literally the algorithm is fueled by outrage.

"Pitting the FBI against one of the world's most valuable companies. Apple judge ordering apple to help the FBI break into a cell phone with carried by one of the two terrorists who killed fourteen people in that December attack in San Bernardino. So the FBI wanted apple to help them break into a phone an iphone that was used by one of the attackers in that twenty fifteen shooting in San Bernardino, California, apple refused. And the reason I'm bringing this up is because it has to do with this big question that countries around the world are grappling with should law enforcement be able to demand that tech companies provide these back doors to help with ongoing investigations lawmakers here. In the US haven't come up with the legal framework to answer that question, but they did in Australia. Really? Yeah. Last week in Australia. They passed controversial legislation that essentially gives law enforcement agencies the right to go to tech companies and say handover your encrypted data. Remind us what kind of platforms use encrypted data messaging apps like what's app signal are two good examples. They're designed to make it. So that if I send you a message, Carol you, and I are the only two people who can see that message the platforms cannot see them law enforcement cannot see them nobody except you, and I can see them and the argument that law enforcement in Australia have been making is that without access to those communications police and law enforcement can't do their job properly. They say that digital communications are really a key tool to investigating organized crime and terrorism. Here's what Australia's home affairs minister, Peter Dutton. Said about this last month, there's terrorists and other criminals. Evolve tactics must we saw the Australian government wants to be able to go to tech companies and say we have a suspect in this case. And we think there might be vital information inside this encrypted app. Decrypt that data or or what what what's what's gonna happen to the company rates a decrypt that data or face a penalty like big fine. Do you have a sense of what a stray liens are thinking about this? Yeah. There's been a lot of backlash to this legislation particularly from the tech community in Australia. I talked to Sarah Moran. She runs a company called girl geek academy that's all about getting girls and women into tech. So she told me that there aren't clear limits on when law enforcement can and can't demand data under this law that of course, raises some pretty big questions about digital privacy. And Sarah also told me that jeopardizes the future of estrellas tech industry, regardless of the logistics of the law. It means out government has sent a message to the weld that really pulls into question as to whether or not we should be building technology companies, and it is disheartening actually almost heartbreaking to be able to say. Well, that's great. I really want to build technology. But maybe you can't do it because of these laws, and that has really put my own world into a bit of a tailspin. And Carol Sarah told me there's another major question that this legislation raises who does this apply to and where there is the potential implication that if an American company has engineers that those engineers will need to abide by trillion law, and I know already there are some American companies having those conversations about what that means. What do American companies think about all this big American companies like apple Google, Microsoft? They've already come out and denounced the law. They say it undermines cybersecurity and human rights. And Carol, there's one more thing. I want to note here, the US and Australia are part of this intelligence sharing coalition, and people told me, this means that Australians could pass along information that they've gathered under this law to the US, even though the US doesn't have that same legal infrastructure in place. So you see how one nations loss starts affect another's in the cyberspace. Now this law isn't going into effect until the beginning of next year. But still the fact that the Australian government made this move is really significant. And so is the reaction it's got not just from Australia, but the rest of the world, the world's Lydia amount. Only do thanks a lot. Thanks, carol. One more quick note before we take a break..

"You've been confronted to a lot of ambitious, very complicated complex material, and you have to decide within seconds. Many of the people in the Philippines told us that they really overwhelmed to make those decisions at the end. There's just the gut feeling helps them out to decide, and that's really problematic because Facebook and others becaming more or less yet the biggest infrastructure communication information nowadays. It's like our do to public sphere, and it's very important what appears they would not and did I am them thinking if things like satire and political expressions? Well, did I am them with any understanding of he's three and culture that can sometimes. A lot of this stuff comes with baggage, giving any sort of support to navigate that. No. Also not really. They have a training material. It's like hundreds of patients pages with hundreds of rules, and then they have to learn all these rules and then they have to decide. And whenever Facebook is talking about the community standards, they they kind of try to make sure that these are objective rules, but who is executing those rules. These are people and every people if specific cultural background specific social background, and it's not easy to decide or it's not easy to to decide for one rule of for another rule. There was one very funny example in our filled when American artists Ilna go painted Dona Trump the nude with the very small penis. And one of the contest moderators told as he would elite this image because you're making fun of president, and that's because in the Philippines, your, it's not able or you're not allowed to to criticize your president or thirties, which is completely different to Europe. To the saints. I'm curious, given the enormous political pressure at the moment on Facebook, especially in the United States after the two thousand sixteen election of Donald Trump, do you think silicon valley's approach to social media motivation is going to have to change? I hope so. I don't know if you heard about the the law case lawsuit, which which I've heard about yesterday that one of the moderators from California sued Facebook for for having a post traumatic stress also because she was also doing pundit moderation in the states, and there's much more pressure from the journalists in from from from the public. And I hope that this moderation process will change in the future. But at the end, what Facebook when they been in front of the hearing, congress in the states told is that they want to hire twenty thousand people until the end of this year for motivation, but it's not just the quantity. It's also the quality who is deciding what we can see what not. That's really what we have to talk about. And just lastly, before ego, has it changed the way used the internet? Do you see the internet differently now that you know that as subterranean industry of motorise. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, whenever I post something on Facebook, I really thinking about the content moderators and there was also one funny anecdotes when the production company of film toasted the trailer of our film. Actually, the trailer was deleted from YouTube. Why? Under what terms? Yeah, and that's really funny or, I mean, it's it's tragic as well because the film about the very rough working conditions from content moderators was deleted by content moderator somewhere somewhere in the world. Did I ever put on the raisin. No, no reason at all. We asked to YouTube Google, we asked them, there was no response at all. So this is the way it goes nowadays. There's a big entrance parents to talk about mistakes to talk about underlying problems, and hopefully that changes in the future in the future hands block joining us from Berlin.

"It back to Android for a second. So there's been a decade of development and what we've seen as you look at the photos of where Android started to where it is now, and it's a huge jump. And I think one of the other elements to that is that Android has become so much more than just a mobile platform as Google's kind of suite of services coalesced and expand and contract, and fragment I'm curious about way given the Android is the more open of the two platforms, right? I'm curious about way you see going Knicks. What if we're just talking about the the software individ what would you like to see come out of the next durations of Android that might be would extend interest you is somebody that works with young people. And technology actually thing about Android is very popular in emerging economies. So I was in Uganda two years ago, our and everyone had an Android fine, and that's not. Something I'm used to. I'm used to saying in our fifty fifty split ends androids and watching the behavior in the way that those emerging economies a using this technology. I think there's a real opportunity to embrace that for a new, a new sort of wave of how how he can engage people. So for example, most of the young people in Uganda were using Facebook as their entry point to the internet. Imagine if Google could really take that and say, we'll actually, there's all these other interests that you could be using. And I think something that really sort of is less, you know, I weld are anted and really thinks about the way that we can communicate and sell problems that have just largely been ignored so far as those economies emerge. If Google is made by money that money on the table, it's it's ready to be braced. So that's what I'd like to say, but that's just my drain board. My vision board. Hyun your vision beyond just like less less screen time, Ben for Android. I'd like to see them focus more on privacy, so they rely on people's data. They rely on. Let's you know, they, they rely on people's very personal sensitive information to run their business. The reason that they devices are so affordable is because of that. So you are making a trade there and that's the that's what apple at least seems to argue that if you want privacy use apple if few daren't than maybe use anyone else and and it's sad though, isn't it? Isn't it sad that these these third world countries will the Asian countries. Having to you. They night continence early afford to have privacy. But yeah, I think Google is doing some interesting things on that front. And I hope to see more of download. This is what you're listening to easy guide to the week in media technology and culture.
