You know you've done a million shows over the years and I'm sure there's all sorts of wild storylines but the the you are or are not the father is forever going to be the the bread and butter of the Maury Povich show and I think specifically correct me if I'm wrong but I think at least maybe for the modern era or the some of the younger kids, there's the one. Clip of the one guy who really starts dancing when you announced, he's not the father and the Internet put neurotic over it and they turned it into a meam and I feel like that really kind of exposed a whole new generation to it but I think that was kind of a turning point moment was is that?

Fresh update on "tiktok" discussed on Up First

"So we've heard a lot lately about facebook and twitter trying to keep up with conspiracy theories and disinformation on their sites. Yeah. Those two companies are taking their hits but actually, this is a problem on all social media including Tiktok that video sharing APP is only two years old, but it has twice as many users is twitter and with all those users come a lot of problems in Paris Bobby Allen has been looking at talks dark side either Bobby Hey Steve. What do you see when you look around on Tiktok? Name, a major news event and Steve you'll probably find lots of misinformation about it on Tiktok. So I mean we're talking wild ideas about trump's positive krona virus tests. You know all sorts of bogus theories about Joe Biden loads of you know unfounded health information about the virus like early on in the pandemic there was this misinformation push on Tiktok where people were taking videos outside of hospitals. It was this kind of absurd attempt show that the corona virus was a hoax. Here's a guy under the username say not socialism who took part not lead Chapman, and this is a hospital serves thousands and thousands of people here in downtown Brooklyn New York. There is no mass chaos out here contrary to what the mainstream media is telling you. I guess we'd better just pause to note that thousands of people died of corona virus in New York and the hospitals were hard pressed even though they did avoid chaos what Tiktok doing about this kind of thing. Yes. So the hospital video we just heard was taken down. That was video that was being pushed by the trump supporting conspiracy theory Q. on Tiktok. Says it deletes all accounts and content that Cunanan pushes at least Steve? That's its policy when it comes to misinformation when it comes to other kinds of troubling content like hate speech enforcement is not easy and there are tons of examples of really problematic video sort of sneaking past the moderator, the human moderators and the artificial intelligence, and what does it do? Then it catches millions of views I talked to Dave Frey he's what the anti-defamation league and he says sometimes these extremists are. Using code language on tick tock to try to avoid detection, for example, swapping the number four for the letter A. and the number one for the letter I or l., and so you might see N. Four. Z L standing for Nazi. Yeah. So facebook and twitter have been targets of scrutiny for these sorts of posts on their sites and you know on one hand you have people saying that they are helping to spread harmful content on the other when they do act they're accused of censorship. Well, here's this happening on a new platform that didn't even exist in the last presidential election. How has tick talks approach any different from facebook or twitter? I mean most of the time when we hear tiktok in the criticism, it faces over its Chinese ownership not about what actually on the APP minute slots of goofy and fun videos. You know a a video of a of a monkey getting a bath in a sink which I just on tiktok recently, not exactly a threat to democracy, but there is misinformation and extremism that troubles experts and Tiktok is. Different because it's policies are really clear cut and it tends to take a more aggressive stance towards the misuse of its APP and so there are lessons learned by looking at what twitter and facebook have done, which is sort of scattershot. Let's just whack a piece of troubling content when we see it instead of that Tiktok is setting clear-cut policies here NPR's Bobby Allen. Thanks very much. Hey thanks, Steve.

"After my passed away because. Ran I lost Michael and my children lost their father. It was so riveting. Ceiling word I, can think to describe. What happened in our lives? So I was very cognizant. Of others beside myself my children, right and. So it, it was a little bit of a mix. Batch. This is what I think. Women should look for. Whether they're in their twenties or their seventies or eighties or fifties. Most important thing. To look for. In order to have. A successful. Marriage. IS TO BE INSANE With one another. And by that I ne-. It's you like everything that your spouse lights and that doesn't mean you don't have your individual feelings and opinions. White can you really argue about? There is the matter of the sleep divorce. You could still argue over who's going to keep the left or the right side of the bed or staying in the same. It just had to say, can always find something to argue about, but I just have to tell you. During NAP. Brunch. Shelly said to me. Now he had been a widower for six years He said you now. When I started dating. I didn't think religion mattered. I found out it did. Interesting I out other things that were very important to me and so. Two years ago a year ago I made a list of what I needed and a wife. And you are the recipe. First thing. was you had to be ferry sexually attracted to run another. And we were. And then the list goes on. He wanted to marry a woman. that. Did Not have small children. He had gone through the process. Once he did not care to go through it a second time and how old were the girls at this point my girls were in their late teens and early twenties. Okay. So check his kids were in their thirties, right? Okay. He wanted to marry a woman that was educated. He wanted to marry a woman. whose values matched his, he wanted to marry a woman that likes to travel. He wanted to marry I can't even think of all of them. All I can tell you is that every single thing on his all this was really interesting. He wanted to marry a woman from out of town. I said why right? He said because I don't want. To ever think. That we are out socially and we run into someone you went out. Anyone, right. It was just. That was to me the strangest. But understandable but I understand. So he really thought while in Heart. And everything that he mentioned I was the perfect recipe and I saw the same about him. So the only thing and Johnny mentioned where you have to argue about something always do one saying. Money Really. Not A lot. But you know women really I would gather. I love to buy gifts for everyone. I loved by things I'm gather and most men are not spenders. You know the women spent and my husband does love beautiful things don't get me wrong right? Right. He would say to me. Really need that. And then I'd say. I think I did Many say oh, well, you know you can have anything you run but I was not a woman that just went out and you know it was crazy. That that seems to be. The one issue we have, but we love we love the same foods we love to travel to the same places. So if you choose a spouse like that, you are in sync with, there's a lot of camaraderie. Yes it's a good mix. Yeah and I think too many women think that they may be able to change hand. Can you when you meet a man you know. Your heart gidget signal. Yup. Yup. They give one. It. Gives me one all too often unfortunately but yes, I mean it has it does I totally agree with what you were saying earlier about instincts and particularly with. Women I. Mean we have good instincts. We need to follow them I. Think we know I see. So many young women now their own blogs and podcasts and Tiktok and all these things where they're giving or discussing dating advice and what I see. So often are the same things being said about red flags and these are women in their twenties I mean. You know you know if somebody doesn't seem to be. Honest. You know of somebody I mean you know one thing that always has been a huge huge turnoff for me as a guy who's cheap if he doesn't tip. That says a lot about him to me. So but at and I mean, maybe there are things that you could change if their little like that. But there's so much that flows through some of those red flags and we really do know pretty early on one of the things I love about your story and Sheldon's is the fact that he knew what he wanted. He made a list I think there's so many men and women but surely young woman that really don't know what they want. They don't know if somebody's hot. Then let's go and see how it is whatever. But having these kind conversations about what it is that's important to you and. Really knowing not just what you on what you don't want or what you wouldn't have I mean I look I admire honesty. He did not want to be with somebody that had young children doesn't make him a bad guy been there done that not interested in getting up in the middle of the night going to parents sites whatever I respect him for knowing what he wanted and being able to articulate it, and then following what his both mind and heart said in terms of what would be a good match and I'm so happy for the two of you that you found each other.

Learn about poll workers the unsung heroes of election day talk money matters in men's versus women's sports and find out how long it took to play the longest professional tennis match ever laid. But I message for parents and Guardians. Hey. Parents and Austin Guardians I'm Tracy Leads Kaplan executive producer of the ten news I'm Owen and I'm eight and a half and who are you you son we're so excited to share this new podcast with you and your family in breast your kids in check out the ten news on social media. Since we're just getting started we'd love to hear from here follows the ten news on instagram twitter and Tiktok few like the show does it tell you about what's going on in the world? Distract me from my sister. Okay, let's get into the ten news. Seven six. Four three. Athlete to play their sport with millions of people watching have a platform meaning with a big audience focused on them. They have a unique opportunity to make an impactful state. Many athletes have user platform to speak out when they see injustice like former forty niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the national anthem at. Games. Or tennis superstar Naomi Osaka wearing the names of victims of racial injustice. On her face masks during every round on her way to winning this year's US Open. Lebron James is another great example as a four-time NBA champion who's just as known for scoring as he is passing the ball and getting others involved it should come as no surprise that while competing for his latest championship, he used his platform to bring attention to important issues outside of basketball we will definitely not. Shut up and dribble and to have athletes feel empowered to speak about whatever they feel like they wanNA, speak about to have that platform means everything to me with a pivotal presidential election around the Corner Lebron. A number of professional athletes took note and launched more than a vote a nonprofit organisation aimed at fighting voter suppression. A tactic used to discourage even prevent specific groups of people from voting their hope is that more African American voters will go to the polls this year. Back in June more than vote issued an open letter addressing their mission. We are focused on systemic voter suppression in our community and have a specific mission, educate energize and protect black voters. It's clear. They want people to know their vote matters, but they're not just looking to inspire people they want them to take part in the movement to. More than a vote recently partnered with the Racial Justice Law firm end up C. P. Legal Defense, fund, and launched. We got next a campaign that amazingly recruited more than ten thousand poll workers to volunteer in black communities. This election having poll workers is crucial in fighting voter suppression because it makes it easier for people to safely cast their ballots without standing in line for hours on end a major problem in the past that is even kept some people from getting vote at all. Now more than vote is looking to the younger generation involved in helping at the polls and who better.

Fastly shares plunge on worries about TikTok

"But we are going to start with a rough day for one particular group of shareholders. Shares of fastly down twenty, five percent at the moment, the edge cloud platform. Cut Revenue Guidance for the current quarter because of a reduction in business from its largest customer, which is Tiktok. Now, they didn't say that in the announcement but fastly has previously said the TIKTOK. is their biggest customer. When you look at this business and you look at the stock, falling? The stocks had a great run but when you look at it falling twenty five percent, do you think that's an overreaction or do you think for an unprofitable business cutting revenue from its largest customer? Yeah. This seems about right. I think it's a natural reaction when you have a stock like fastly which as you mentioned, has been a high flier for for this entire year and you have negative news coming out decreasing revenue guidance three and a half percent on the low end up to eight percent on the high end. So a pretty substantial decrease in expectations for the next quarter, it's natural to see a really volatile reaction. We saw that yesterday with the Stock Falling Twenty five thirty percent. After. Hours what is worth mentioning though is that it brings stock back to their price. It was maybe about a month ago, and that's not to say that you should ignore this news. It's just to say that the context for fastly leading up to this announcement was that there was really really high expectations this is going to impact them. Next quarter management has been up front about that long term. I don't think it changes the thesis if you're an investor fastly at all.

7 Business Lessons From Instagram Launching 'Reels'

7 Business Lessons From Instagram Launching 'Reels'

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners all you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about seven business lessons from instagram launching. Real's. So instagram as this recording there still a, there's this battle against Tiktok the even the US is battling Tiktok while trying to get in the cell and so facebook sees tiktok as a existential threat. So they launched their tiktok competitor called reels and we just WanNa talk about a couple of business lessons that we learned watching Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, which owns instagram over the year. So I'll start with number one number one is you know don't be afraid to coffee I mean you know they copied stories from snapchat and other copying reels. Actually not illegal to do. So people actually think maybe it's in bad taste but some people will talk trash to meals. People talk trash to me saying Oh. You know we're copping copying copying but. Even. The biggest companies in the world they iterating on things that happened to be working well, and then they move on. Yeah number two is don't expect every launch a success sometimes facebook does launches and they do well and sometimes they don't do well. But the one thing that's for sure is persistent and they keep trying new things. So whenever you launch something new and it doesn't go well, don't get discouraged just keep at it keep tweaking, keep experimenting, keep testing and keep launching because some things will be a massive hit and some things will. Number three is around if you're going to launch something, you launch it with fanfare, and so they launched it with fanfare and they announced it across channels. But also what happens is, for example, when live launched or when stories launched, they favored the stories even even an instagram right now, our facebook when you go live, they still favor you because it's engaging people on the platform. You know if you're going to launch something, make sure that you are marketing correctly you're promoting where you can and you're making the most of the distribution that you have and face because ton of distribution across its channels. So that is number three. Number Four. When you're doing a launch, you need to end up creating buzz around it before you launch, and after if you just release something and you launch it and it's a soft launch, it doesn't do well when facebook does launches, they tried to create as much noise as possible. Another player to look at when it comes to launches including noise is apple. So falling either of them is tragic to create that buzz. When you create that buzz is much more likely to go off as a hidden, and then it's going to cause more sales, conversions usage whatever the metric you're optimize for. Number five if you think about it reels launched and there's this tiktok battle going on but keep in mind to mark Zuckerberg is a really good businessman he he's not look he he helped code facebook but at the end of the day, a lot of people respect for how good he is at at business and what he did was he went to Washington I talked about how Tiktok is national security threat. Who knows if it is it isn't but the fact that matters got the crossers on Tiktok. Now there's a lot more scrutiny and boom they come out with this deal's launch. And if you can't build it crushes, that would be number six. So technically, I would say if you can't build the crush it or buy it. So if Mark Zuckerberg see something that's blowing up talk facebook is an atrocity notre by if they can't buy, they try to copy it everywhere if they can't copy it, they tried to crush just like that stop hey tiktok should end up being banned it's a really smart strategy. The other thing that you'll notice that they end up doing too is if they're going against competitor just copy. The featured on Instagram, the copy that feature on Instagram facebook what's up the everywhere? So you're much more likely to use their ecosystem versus someone else and is a very clever approach to keep people there versus going to the competition. Yeah. Number seven similar to what Neil said a little earlier. But you know if you've got a if you create something, you not only have to kill your babies if they don't work but you have to kill them pretty quickly and so face because launch a lot of different things previously that didn't work out. And they were like, they would come out and then you would see him just disappeared really quickly. Right. So you have to be willing to be unemotional just because you put in a lot of engineering resource a low costs around it and it you did all this marketing fanfare it it doesn't mean that it should stay around because you put know no sunk cost, right that's fallacy, and so you

A Look at Jennie Livingston's 1990 documentary Paris is Burning

"Hello and welcome to Queer as fiction we talk about Queer historical media I'm Jason and I may lie and today we're talking about Jenny. Livingston's nineteen ninety. Documentary. Paris's Bang. Before we start, we have a few called him warnings to this episode. This episode contains mentions of Racism Transphobia Homophobia the AIDS epidemic murder and family rejection. It also contains the use of outdated language surefooted by Queer people on people, call it in courts. If any of that sounds like something, you don't want to listen to please feel free to check out one of. Our other episodes. So I wanted to stop this episode by explaining what is Paris's banning because I feel like a lot of listeners probably a pretty good understanding of this documentary. Some very young listeners may not have seen it. I said Hanson had you seen it before we researched this ups lot no but I had a pirated version of a hard drive for decades. I love with things and have adhd. reasonable. So I was aware of it but I hadn't actually seen it. Yeah. I think I heard the name but didn't know what it was. So Paris is burning is a documentary about the bowl culture scene of New York in the nineteen eighties prominently featuring the African American and Latin American members of that community many among gay and or trans. It documents how they lives intersect with the Bulls the form, the Bulls tight and contains several interviews, participants, explaining concepts, such shade, realness reading, and legendary woods that may be familiar to a modern audience given how by propagated in popular drag culture. Yeah on TIKTOK. The documentary features no narration and very little dialogue from the interview wide lesbian filmmaker. Jenny. Livingston prominent members of several houses in the scene featured including pepple of Asia during Corey Angie Extravaganza and Willi? Ninja. I'll make a nerd here on pronounce while several of the performance featured in Paris boning. Ambiguously Trans Women and so I'm GonNa to share pronounced where I don't have specific evidence I. Do want to note that pepple of Asia describes himself in the documentary is not being woman not understanding the experience of womanhood and being on In a sex change however, her two thousand and three obituary in the new. York. Times describes her as preferring in pronounce ongoing with that as the more recent source compared to this documentary which was filmed in the eighties. So having talked about what Paris has been is I want to I going to kind of how was made so as described by Academic Lucas, Hildebrand in his twenty thirteen book quit film classics Piracy's Boning, which was a major source when I was researching this episode Livingston was taking a film production class at NEOCON. INVESTI windshield observed three young men voguish in Washington. Square Park after asking what they were doing she was invited to an upcoming bowl and soon thereafter began documenting the scene via black and white photographs and audio interviews which were kind of the mediums in which she worked at the time. She was really documentary filmmaker. This was her first data and she since gone on to make several more films which obviously less notable. Because I don't know what they. Yeah. That's pretty wild. Are they on like queer things. Yeah I, believe her I think there's like Queer Antenna. Seems to many of her films. So yeah, it was only the light of that. She began filming the balls and coming up with the idea of turning these into a documentary. Film took seven years to make in no small pod Judah. The struggles Livingston had funding its production. She initially intended it to be appealing observational documentary just kind of following the lives of the Queen's involved in the same but lacked the funding to shoot the endless hours of footage that would be required for such a production. I'm not really an expert on how documentary films of made. Films something like seventy or eighty hours of footage as it is. So like, wow, that must have been. Lot of what is required for something without the kind of caught away stained. Interesting to think about funding a project like this in like post the iphone world. Because there's like a very like obviously a useless modern. Just, film it like whistle the money going yeah. It's like it's interesting. She talks about the various ways in which the film was funded was funded by a bunch of different organization. Thirteen. Different organizations contributed funding including the baby say. And she stalked interviews about how? It's the late eighties you conscious show someone from the BBC your footage you have to fly someone out from. England oh. Wow. Yeah. My Gosh and show them a physical film real. So is that indicative of a certain level of like promises project was seen to have if she was able to show it to someone like that or did this happen quite routinely it was just logistically difficult Y-. Oh. Yeah. So instead of a purely observational documentary, the earlier interviews that she'd recorded were bought back and more interviews were conducted. Most notably interviews conducted in one thousand, nine, hundred, nine broad sense of narrative to the film by depicting the commercial success of Willi Ninja, as well as the tragic murder of Vance Extravaganza young star in the bowl seen who features prominently throughout the Documentary Livingston has self describes the film making process as followers. Suddenly, the people I filmed worked with me in pop because I represented a chance to speak out to be in front of a camera to show off I, consider Paris burning collaboration on the deepest level, the people who. Are Articulate funny poised while the editor and I made coherent full that we saw the documentary was truly written by the bowl people themselves I use that quite because questions of narrative agency consent and understanding of the nature of the documentaries production became deeply controversial upon the film's release and will form a pot about lighter discussion. But before we get into that, I wanted to do a bit

Remembering Eddie Van Halen with Steve Gorman

"Joining me now is Steve. Gorman who was the drummer in the Black Crowes who now plays with trigger hippy and before we talk about some of the Black Crowes stuff in your book I. I saw tweets even it was talking about Eddie Van Halen, which is Kinda. Why you here you say there will be many many words written and spoken about Eddie. Van. Halen, over the next few days, weeks, months and years those millions of words will never come close to expressing what he meant a rock music what he meant to guitarist and what he meant to the guitar itself that's pretty powerful statement Mr Gorman what did Eddie and remind me to rock music I. Think it's it's pretty simple. You can say that he and Jimi Hendrix of the two guys. That truly, and and only the two guys that moved the needle for the guitar itself I mean Hendrix. came out of a blue based. seem. And took the playing and the tone he could get to a new place but even hail and. Really almost came in from another country. Another planet I should say another he's like an alien life form I mean, he was a virtuosic player obviously but he He reinvented what what you could do is to guitar and the fact of the matter is this. Like Hendrix. But even to a greater degree, anybody tries to play like Eddie. Van Halen. Just sounds like a mind a mimic they. It's like rich little doing Johnny Carson okay. Yeah. That kind of sounds like him but. There's nothing nobody's ever been able to do any van. Halen. Did it make it feel a certain way? That each just the and he was that way at twenty two I mean, this is this is not a guy like it's not like David Blaine magic tricks where he gets bigger and better every year he started with card tricks that other people did I even Halen hit the ground running with Van Halen one playing an instrument that have been around for centuries unlike anybody else had ever done I mean he was on the Mount. Rushmore. Of Great Depar- players. At twenty two years old and then, and then he stuck around for another forty years still playing unlike anybody before sin. So I just think that in terms of. You know. Sheer unique. Mindset ambition combined with just. Great talent obviously. But but also phenomenal work ethic I mean he's just a complete unicorn in every sense of the word. How would you describe his guitar sound and I say that I know what I think of it but I wasn't I just messed van Halen like I came around right as you guys were blowing up honestly so that for me the van Halen was slightly classic rock slightly old rock to me as A. Kid. So as someone 'cause, you're just years older than I am but how would you describe his guitar sound someone who was in in it and living it in love and Van Halen? Well I can tell you that that was thirteen years old the first time I heard Van Halen and I remember it. I remember where I was I remember who I was with. It was going home from school in Hopkinsville Kentucky. You really got me there kinks the you know the their cover, the kinks song came on the radio. And and it was playing already and I said, Hey, mom turn that up. It was me and my mom and my friend Brooke. Lofton. The three of us in a car and she turned it up and I my first thought was. That must be like a live version of the king song and I was thinking like we don't they don't rock or do they. But when it hit that Solo and then by the time, the song ended I realized well, that does that's not ray Davey seeing this is clearly a cover version but what on earth is this and it was like making my? Hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is a time when I thought punk rock was the coolest thing in the world. and. The truth is Van Halen was more punk than the punks because they were truly breaking down a bunch of barriers if you will or they were going in their own. You know there hasn't been a band like Van Halen since led Zeppelin in terms of. Rock band hits the ground running at full steam and it obliterates everything in their path in a certain sense and. Jimmy van Halen sound it sounded like California was in my head. You know soon as I realized soon as I heard about them, they're from La, and as soon as I saw David Lee Roth and then as soon as I heard more than you know the next thing I heard was eruption Guitar Solo and you know hearing just two pieces of their first album and seeing what they look like it just. It felt brand new and it already felt like they're going to be around forever. You just knew from the jump and this is me as a thirteen year old kid who is obsessed with music. This band is one of the Alzheimer's like there's nothing like this and they all have the chops and the other thing too as long as I'm just rambling incessantly any van Halen was a great rhythm player. It wasn't just about the Solos he led the band rhythmically and he's also it needs to be noted not that it's not obvious. He's a hell of a songwriter I mean he really was. As I said before he's a true Unicorn I mean, just just nothing like it. What does this sound like do you? It sounds frequent and right in right in the zone near your your key. That's one thing because listen I played a little bit I don't play even as good as my friends who are real life musicians, but it's perfect frequency and frequency is in the tone or the, but as because it's a lot. I mean Brad Paisley plays unnoticed Brad. Paisley. Because I hear the chicken Pickin I hear a very distinct sound and again I didn't catch van Halen as it was happening in my childhood. But when I hear Van Halen Song even if I, it's I, don't know who it is. Just hear the guitar part I hear the Eddie van Halen because I how fast he shreds but the pattern that he does it, you can just tell. By By his fingers and it just kind of again it's hard to explain when you ask about music but that's what I think about and I try to. Always try to. Prepare analogies and most of the people who listen to this podcast here between twenty to forty, and if you were to make an analogy to another band, it's GonNa be tough because Van Halen was massive. But who later on had the kind of? Impact or. Reflected the mass listening that Van Halen had well. What band what yeah. What band can we look at now or in the last ten years and see? Okay. Well, that's how big Van Halen was to the people that were the kids in the eighties.

"Doing. Cash. Surviving. By me. I know. House has the has twenty twenty in treating you. On, a sleep I am enjoying the. A. Forced vacation I guess let's. Yeah. Yeah. That'd be good food. Good. Could be worse you know. I totally agree I. I've definitely benefited of being like more alone with my thoughts figuring things out. What have you been? Occupying your time with. Besides like. We even talk about that. So I have been kind of doing nothing for a longest time in the beginning I really took it as a vacation and did nothing just WORKED MYSELF RESTED PLAY VIDEO GAMES Nice the last couple maybe last month I started getting into 'cause I used to have a youtube channel and content creation, but I never really understood the technical side of it. Oh I've kind of taken it upon myself to learn and I've started. Content creating again and how I'm doing that is through. Twitch I've been streaming on twitch for the past month now. Yeah I saw that I saw that on I think facebook where you're sharing your your upcoming schedule I I am dabbling in twitch myself but I'm still a total new. I will try to help you out with every little bit knowledge that I have but my it's not much. Out On me then that's probably a lot more I. Mean you learn this is what I learned from Tiktok right? Because I was very late to the game rob you just learn so much just by doing it, right? Yes. Absolutely. Getting on the platform. Okay. So what do you do on twitch because I hiked you up in the Intro, we get to know your background you've do stunts and you're an actor, and it's all these amazing things. But like bring us up to speed of like what what, what makes you you and what what kind of stuff are you putting out there? Well, I'm I'm still kind of figuring it out but. I love video games and I play video games all the time. So I figured I might as well stream it, but I didn't want to just stream any game I wanted to like find a way to make the stream enjoyable. Okay. Streaming Games is one thing. The other thing that I'm doing is that I'm I only did once so far but I'm doing kind of what you're doing is bringing you know my friends to come into the stream and kind of talk about themselves you know to have platform for them to. Show what they're doing what's What is it What projects they're doing, what they're excited about and what? Past projects they've done. So I did one last week with Chris Gye at Rj Alex. Is a good friend of mine old friend. And he? He's an acquaintance like we work together a lot. You know when you're doing stunts with each other, you're constantly like seeing each other but only from one side of it. So when I got to bring him on I learned a lot from him talking to the chat. So because you're going deeper into who he is in his background and stuff or like his yeah. Inner thoughts. Exactly. So it's a lot of calls on song in the drink while we can. That's so good. Are you just talking or you playing games and talking and Boba so were talking for the first hour in we hop into a game it just so happened that he was a voice of a game. So we played the game that he was the voice on and it just happened to be a horror game and I don't do well with Horror Games no, I would hate that. I didn't like it. But I'm sure the audience then 'cause you're like actually having a genuine reaction. Is freaking out. Well Okay 'cause gaming is crazy because they I mean because of technology everything is so real. Now it's not like it's not like cartoony stuff. Oh, this way I don't want to even go there because I, I would legit get. Probably from that like. I couldn't sleep well night. I mean, I, love the audiences everything but oh yeah, exactly. But. It's just been. It's been great because. As you know my wife is pregnant so Yeah congratulations. Thank you. Yeah. It's our first kid. We weren't expecting to for it to happen. So quickly, you know, but it was perfect timing usually amount of the country you know half the year whatever. But because of COVID. I've been able to be home for her throughout the pregnancy. Blessings blessings everywhere. There's always I. Mean. I. I like everybody else have been going through it. It's not like just it's there are blessings and and that's not the entirety of it but there's always something to be grateful for and I'm really happy that I mean I'm so like over you guys are the sweets which y you have like Yoshi can we know her story and we're here to talk about love and we will get up to speed with this because you guys are such a beautiful beautiful couple and I'm just so glad that in the middle of all of this madness, you guys have that to celebrate his as such a precious thing to be able to experience together.

"Big sensors with the Luma. Ten twenty. You will see things you never seen an entirely new. All high resolution forty, one megapixel back side illuminated sensor the forty one mega. Kind of thing that we are maybe entering another round hopefully of weird experiments and not just everybody competing on who can have the best low light performance absolutely you keeping up on like I, guess it's folding phones right thing. Immediately thinking what is it the algae wing and this is the wing. Yeah. I know looking at the pictures it looks weird and. But I'll. Great Job Oh man what do you think of that thing? A thing is wild I haven't seen it in person yet. I have so many questions in terms of how it is to actually use on a day-to-day basis just flipping opening closed is incredibly nice. It's also way thinner and lighter than you would expect from something with two screens in weird flipping hinge like this I think is the most out bird design we've seen so far. Yeah. By folding phones we get it makes sense but flipping twisty whatever yeah I know it's crazy so. We are starting to see experience because I don't want to smartphones have plateaued kind of plateaued in terms of just features an youth new things that will. Come to them. So now this experiment of adding extra screens or expanding screens, it's a, it's really taking over the other thing that was different in that area and we check with the next five is Google had this strategy where they didn't make the phones themselves. They went to like different manufacturers over here and make us a phone and they did it so that they could just make a new version of android and like show off with how Or could work whatever. But now we have this pixel strategy. How do you think that's going? I know it's it was interesting because back in the day who they have within the next five LG was G. I I remember every time a pixel came out a next came out I. I was always waiting for my favorite manufacturer to get the nod. HTC. Come back on the next us. I think I like that. has taken over I think it means that there's More control and what we're not seeing a second vice somewhere out there that looks exactly like but with different software. Yeah I don't know if people remember this the next this was always basically based on another phone that the company already made and so you knew that this was just like the Google version of whatever the other was it like the g three for the next five I, can't remember and remember. As possible ninety five G. Three. Yeah. What did he call those versions of Android I? Mean those phones always had just like a stock version of android Google play edition yes. The play this and. Came like right around that time, and so you could get the stock version a back back in the day we we thought of it as a stock version. It was technically still like it was the Google version it wasn't pure stock Android, but you could get something without touch was on it because. Touch was was sway too much back then. It was so much stuff that was like the my least favorite out say then having that option was so cool. But Digress. I do like that Google has taken it on themselves. Have they made the best choices in terms of like design, all that MOS. Absolute each person to decide but I still like it being in house you know I feel like it's it gives them more control. They choose to exercise. You know really listening to feedback in implementing that you know but I do like the strategy I feel like we've seen. Microsoft. Really good job with that with their hardware on the surface the laptop stuff. Laptops. Just seeing them. All right. We're GONNA take this in-house start making our own things and you know we've seen pretty good success. Yeah for them. So I like the idea as a matter of like execute. Well so I'd like I agree with you I like the because. Google gets to make what a definitely wants to make. Right. It's not. This, year the next. This is not so good because it. You know they they based on the wrong phone this year, right? The next six was hallway phone had all sorts of bugs. What Google makes Google's responsible for right. There's nobody else to blame, but it also means that there's nobody else to blame, right? Yeah. I love Google don't get me wrong best al I love the Pixel devices but one thing I feel like we see manufacturers kind of learn and change things up a bit. I feel like the pixels learning curve has been. Not, the BASS. Just just from the hardware perspective is just. Having been wowed by hardware in a while right. So this is my take on it as they're really conservative right now. So actually the pixel five is a perfect example of this. They went back to fingerprint sensor, but everybody else Samsung has been doing screen figure fingerprint one plus has been doing in screen fingerprint sensors. It's like it's a whole thing. Google didn't. So part of it is cost savings but part of it their explanation for. Well, the one on the back is a thousand percent reliable and it's faster and they're not wrong like I do still have a little bit of a lag sometimes even on like a super fast hot Samsung phone hitting that fingerprint sensor under the screen, but it's not exciting. Is the TIKTOK they're exactly I honestly, I'm not with you mentioning that I'm I remember liking having a fingerprint sensor in the back and it's just so how how our opinions can change over time because the way the market goes, but I really enjoyed having a fingerprint sensor the because you could just pick up your phone and the second you pick it up you're. Thinking directly go onto the sensor and your phone is unlocked pretty quick and easy experience honestly. Also weird season ticket step back. So with the next five, they came into that thrifty price point done it with the Pixel for the the next four and so it was they were a little bit cheaper everybody. Also, all phones were cheaper. But they were they were cheaper than everybody else. There wasn't a lot of competition at that price point at that quality. So the next five, one of the reasons I loved it is it was cheap and everybody else but equality. But now with the Pixel Five, there's a lot more competition this year right then they had with xs five there's the there's one plus eight out there. That's relatively cheap April can sometimes be that same price, the Samsung Twenty, F, e. Got The faster processor Scott like three cameras on it. There's an iphone eleven that's the same price and the iphone twelve is going to be who knows probably around that same price. What do you think the landscape that they're putting this mid range Pixel five in? Its competitive. It's competitive right now and feel like they went down to weight class but that way classes kinda stack to you know it's not just like bringing down the price you're not competing with Fox's anymore. There's a whole group of phones in that area now. And it's GonNa. Be a tough battle because in the phone department, there are some really big names out there like Samson. Apple. So it's it's not GonNa be any easier I direction but it would have been cooler to see things like to see those flags of specs or. Sort of flagship specs at that price point. Seeing snapdragon age sixty, five or something in there rather than the seven sixty five being able to have those things and kind of call like, Hey, boo, just slashing prices. That's that's a more interesting story you know but I mean it's still and it had like one twenty hurts you know just just those features that we expect from the flagship is if they were able to bring that down then we're. We're able to compete. That's actually like the central conflict of the pixels who pays attention to the pixel like really truly who knows what the Pixel Tech nerds right people that are like really into phones attack an android or like Oh. Yeah. I know about the Pixel I know what that means I know people know that Google makes a phone or whatever. But like the people that are really paying attention are the people that know the difference would might care about the difference between a ninety one, hundred, twenty screen so they're making a phone for the masses but the. Only people paying attention to them are people that are in attack, and that's a really hard thing for them to deal with and people in that category that that market is looking. So heavily those numbers yeah under super informed exactly and even if the numbers tell the entire story or they don't, you know exactly take the experience that audience is suber driven by those numbers like insanely. So it does make it a lot tougher because people will just look at it on paper and say, Hey, this I mean, this oneplus near over here has forty cents megapixel camera thirty megapixel. Really really tough well, lucky for everybody There are Youtube Channel Take consumer that will tell the people about the specs and about the numbers. So the understanding but also talk about the actual experience of the thing if it's any good and the average get Super Schwab, where can people find you if they wanNA look for you youtube back actually anywhere you can find me can also media just type in your average consumer and Alibaba. Well. Appreciate you coming on the PODCAST and I'll be waiting for your up five view. Sounds good to see her.

"We don't want to anger Beijing because unlike a lot of our competitors in California we. Actually operate in China. We have a large operation in China linked in is available in China. So I think that that was part of the reason, and also I don't think that by dance really wants to give up control so I think it was helpful for them that or came in and say, Hey, we're gonNA take a stake or maybe to have some like safeguards here there we're going to be able to look at the code maybe examined how the Algorithm works, but we're not trying to buy the APP outright from you for twenty billion dollars or whatever. So I. think that's sort of how we got there. The problem is that that's not what the president wanted. That's not what the president said would be acceptable, and as a result, a lot of Republican lawmakers have actually spoken out and said, this deal should be accepted because it is not an outright sale I'm wondering if the security concerns or any kind of security related. Investigations have continued during this process of a deal being brokered like wasn't the original idea that there were supposedly these big security concerns or what was going to happen in terms of data leakage to the Chinese Communist Party, and now it's like everyone seems more focused on the machinations of the deal itself rather than like what's actually happening on Tiktok? What's the latest on that? Yes. So that's a really good point. I think part of the problem is that the trump administration was never very specific. So they never cited any concrete evidence about tiktok Don XYZ. So we don't want them to do that in the future and it's kind of ironic because Oracle keeps talking about we're going to keep all the Tiktok data in our cloud and that's GonNa make it safe and the reality is that at least according to Tiktok, they've already been keeping Americans data in the US. So it's not really clear that this deal would change that much or resolve any of those security concerns especially if by dance routines. Majority control of the company which they've said on social media, they know very well intend to. So basically, we have a gigantic circus here and it's not really clear that anything has happened except trump has been able to get a pretty sweet deal for one of his political allies. Now, what about all the quote unquote extra money that they were talking about at the beginning of this process there was five billion dollars in fees that were supposed to go to the US Treasury or some other giant. Some seven Education Fund for Computer Science Students in the US is that still going to happen or was that ever going to happen? Yeah I'm glad you brought that up. So earlier in the summer trump was talking about getting a finders fee essentially a ransom for orchestrating this deal which he created the need for in the first place. and. Then he said you know actually I some lawyers I talked to told me that was illegal. So never mind and it kind of seemed like that part of the saga was over but then at a campaign rally last weekend in North Carolina, trump's are talking about this again and he said that Tiktok agreed to give. The US government five billion dollars to start this education fund to teach young Americans about the truth about American history or something right very quickly. It seemed that by dancing Tiktok had no idea what he was talking about. Then, oracle and Walmart put out a statement where they basically tried to close this discrepancy by using maybe some of the same words that trump used but I won't say that the outcome was the same. So they said that Oracle Walmart Tiktok and some other TIKTOK investors would set up some sort of like A. Education thing that would be about math computer science maybe also history one of the words that trump used. And then they talked about Tiktok paying five billion dollars in taxes something that they would have to do anyway. So we got some of the same keywords there. However, what they are describing is not what trump was describing it was just kind of another part of this crazy soap opera but I think it was very distracting, very confusing undermined the whole process. And was a great headline for a minute but I don't think anyone really knew what he was talking about there. I'm sensing a theme. Yeah a little good. All right. Well, let's take a quick break and when we come back, we'll talk about China tech and the government. Their hotel brands that recognize what technology can do and where it can be used to help enhance your stay Cambria hotels an upscale hotel brand built for the modern tech.

"Now. There have been a few other reports saying that Microsoft's considering a purchase of the global operations of tiktok. A report that Microsoft has disputed. The value of the deal will fluctuate depending upon which version of the deal you're looking at. But generally speaking the reports I've seen have valued at between ten and thirty billion dollars. It boggles my mind. But Microsoft that has not traditionally performed terribly well with younger customers apart from maybe the xbox division I suppose. May want to go after Tiktok to help secure its future with younger customers. Microsoft says well, here's the way we get them. We buy something they really like already we have to view this not just as an issue of national security however, and we have to take into account the broader situation of global politics and trade agreements. One could look at the success of Tiktok and see it as a point of power for a Chinese company and by extension the Chinese. Government. So wresting control of that. APP. Even if it's just part of an APP from, China would end up being a political loss for China and a political win for trump. So complicating matters is that tiktok users, most of them younger have become extremely active over the last several months during the global response to the covid pandemic in other words. What else is there to do? You might as well make a whole bunch of videos, but some of that activity is political in nature. People have been using Tiktok to kind of organize politically, and much of this action has been critical of the US president and the US government's handling of the COVID nineteen crisis. I totally get it anyway. It's hard to get away from the feeling that Somma of the US government's response to. Might be backlash against a user base that has been outspoken about perceived failures in the US government whether it's from covid or the black lives matter movement or many other social issues. Some say that maybe this is a move to try and quiet quiet a voice that has been troublesome for the US government. Then we have the competing services that have started to spring up. That are attempting to take advantage of this whole situation and try and get some of the success that Tiktok has enjoyed. The. Most famous of these is facebook introducing the feature. Cold reels are E. L. S. on. INSTAGRAM. and. I don't think there's any way you could argue it wasn't inspired by TIKTOK. In fact, some people go so far as to say, it's essentially a copy of. TIKTOK. So what options are open right now, where we going to go next, we'll take talk could remain under bite dances ownership, and it could even shift all operations back over to China or to other countries, and it would be very hard for the United States to block Americans from using an APP I mean APPs tend to just be APPS, right? They aren't really you know tied to a specific location generally speaking now presumably, the government could order Internet service providers to block access to the APP to essentially say, don't allow packets to go from those servers to anyone in the United States. But, as I am recording this, we don't even know if Google and apple will actually remove tiktok from their online stores and it seems likely that Internet service providers would resist blocking off access to specific service because it sets a dangerous precedent..

"What I would love to see is an apple kind of like makeover apple takes it and just makes it just a little more user friendly. There's some things that glitch from time to time in Tiktok and I will say that looking instagram's reels, it seems to have some of those bugs works out in terms of actually having clarity on how to shoot a video and post it in add effects and text etc. I would love to see to talk with Apple's hands in the pie is, are you saying? It was good. It is very interesting because you think about Microsoft also owns linked in and you know it's getting some cool stuff but you know in Microsoft hands how will that work I I agree with you be very, very cool with the Polish and the design style that apple has I think it would be very cool because I think they would innovate quickly. You know, I, just don't know I mean I I. I think realistically Microsoft is the first one in they probably have the best chance but who I'd really like to see would probably be apple. So anyway, very, very interesting kind of. Dividing the room is right. So anyway. I we happen to know that you are a social media expert across all platforms. Right? You happen to be our TIKTOK experts. We have you here, but that's that's not even fair because you're brilliant on all of the platform, right so in your opinion, your expert opinion, where do you think you know we don't know where the winds are going to go or what's going to happen like I don't know in fifteen minutes with us like think Tiktok users will go to you know beyond just reels and more importantly where do you think the Tiktok stars and creators will go to should Tiktok? Kinda go away really good question I think that because. INSTAGRAM's reels is first to market. If something should happen, let's say the the deal is informed in. This is really important because I made sure to read the news, not just the headlines, the sub headlines of. Not..

"The. Over the weekend tiktok begin filling up with these testimonials, some of them were emotional. A lot of them were just silly. Ramsey Andy here and I'm hanging out with one of my grandbabies Jordan. Jordan this one is from a grandma who is best known for putting some Mentos in a soda bottle and letting the concoction explode all over her face. She's filming the whole time. She's got two point, five, million followers. We Love Tick Tock, and of course, we're all hoping TIKTOK stays with us for a very, very, very long time because it brings us so much joy. It's brought so much joy to these videos. There were spurred on by the president's assertion on Friday, but he was going to ban tick tock. He's alleged owned company is a Security Threat Dick Talk we love you. We all want you to stay around for a long time. I called up Bethany Abrahamian because I wanted to know whether this ban idea made any sense. So Bethany Ivy question for you do you have to talk on your phone? I do not have Tiktok on my phone. Bethany covers China for axios. So I'll tell you I actually did download tiktok about one year ago, and then I went to open up an account and it was asking for all this information and I thought you know what? I'm just going to go ahead and delete Tiktok from my phone why I was really concerned about about data collection. I was really concerned that the Chinese authorities would be able to recognize somehow that that I was using it because I know that I am a target. As journalist Bethany is already had her email hacked pending Chinese government. She worries about sources. But, watching the trump administration debate the idea of deleting Tiktok for everyone else in the US. Bethany thinks got to understand how it got to this point and what the risks are, whatever we end up doing. Over the weekend the president got a lot of attention for suggesting he wanted to ban Tiktok and it sounds like..

"Actually do lurk on to talk a little bit. Through the web truth. Out. I haven't installed the APP. Don't have an account, but <hes> I do like. Are you clicking on twitter that what it is on Instagram so somebody will post a tiktok video to twitter, and then I'll click through a watch it and then I'll see what else is showing me and something that I've noticed especially like in the last couple of weeks. Is that when I watched the most popular videos? The ones that have like tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of different engagement metrics. Is that <hes> the creators will often like start or end the video by saying like Joe This be shutting down so goes subscribe to my youtube. You know and wondering like. Going to happen are these creators who also have a presence on Youtube had they set up a presence on Youtube, or is it the other way around like the youtubers who are using Tiktok? Because it's the hotter platform I think it's the former so i. think it's that they are proactively trying to make sure that some of their audience has another way of reaching them, but I think. Think it's kind of like for a lot of these creators that take Takashima the main outlet that they have, but if you're Superfan, will also follow the money, instagram or like. If you liked the two minute, they put on tectonic like you can go watch the monetize ten minute video on Youtube, but those I think are kind of for super fans a lot of times when I. I click on a talk creators instagram profile. It will say like Hey, like I have five hundred dollars on Tiktok like hey, if you found me from Tiktok, like follow me here so I. Definitely think it's not really that they grew their platform elsewhere. A lot of them are too young. I think people forget that like instagram is really liked driven by your existing Social Network Youtube is. Is the videos are the wrong way? You know it's very desktop driven, so if you are used to making stuff on your phone, it doesn't really make sense. It's not super obvious how to kind of translate that to other platforms as his early of course, plenty of them do, but I think that Tiktok sort of is something different now one wants to watch a ten second dancing. On Youtube really one of the things that's unique about tiktok to. You is just the way people are actually encouraged to copy each other I. Don't know if copying word exactly, but they're encouraged to like participated in the judge meet. Challenge, do some version of it or interpretation of it, and so now I've watched like dozen videos of people you know holding their cat to their ears and going up. The Queen is coming right. You're not going to experience it the same way without seeing the TIKTOK but like. People do really creative different interpretations, and that's one of the things that I really like whereas I think. If you see twelve of the same videos on Youtube, you're like okay, who? WHO's stealing whose idea here? I think people forget is a kind of early on people describe. Tiktok this way, but everyone kind of forgot it is that it's like Youtube, but with spotify in right, so they were really smart to like have these relationships with the record labels? There's also been problems with pirated content, but they made these relationships with me musical artists and with labels that. That you have those sound clips right like that was a huge part of it that you don't have on youtube usual. Silence your video. Keep trying to take some music right like it's a very different environment where that's not really part of it, yeah, the sound clips are huge i. don't know about you, but I definitely have brain worms from them just. So speaking of other platforms if Tiktok his. Does this end up. Meaning more power for Facebook, buy Instagram, considering how much facebook already rules are social existences while they're also going to release this new APP that's Tiktok knockoff called reels. So we will see if that has any traction. I think that it's more likely to have traction if To talk is bad, and there was also some activity from the founders of vine that they got a boost in new users recently because people came to their new APP bite. because. They thought that Tiktok was going to be banned. So people are getting a little bit more into bite, so yeah, I do think there's a chance that this ends up being kind of a boon for tic talks, competitors and you're Mark Zuckerberg loves to talk about how scary China is. So I think these companies are aware of how can use the situation to their advantage.

"York Hi Louise Hey thanks so much for being here so today we're talking about Tiktok last week this APP. which is for short clever videos that the kids and influencers are all about. This APP is now at the center of this ongoing power struggle between the US and China. Critics say that Ted talks massive presence here is a national security risk because the APP is owned by Bite dance a Chinese tech, company. And it's not just the government that's worried about tiktok Amazon and Wells Fargo recently made a lot of headlines when these companies sent out statements to their employees, asking them to delete the APP. I mean Amazon's little weird. The company later backtracked and said that the emails were sent accidentally. I don't know what that means I. Mean Sure your cat stepped on the keyboard. Hit the send button, but anyway people are still worried about the APP and privacy and security and White House. Officials have said that the US is considering outlawing the APP entirely so later in the show. We're going to talk about the culture of Tiktok. What it means to be on the APP, and why so many people would be upset at the thought of the APP being banned, but I I do WanNa talk about the national security concerns Louise. How valid are these worries? So I think it's really hard to look at these worries in a vacuum because there's basically no hard evidence a couple of security, researchers found flaws of TIKTOK, but they're pretty much in line with the same kinds of flaws that are exposed with facebook with twitter with all sorts of apps all the time. I think that you have to kind of look at the ambient factors here. For example you know as you mentioned there. The friendship between the US and China is not in a good place. Things are really deteriorating. You know the other day literally there were documents on fire at the Houston Consulate of China. These countries really don't like each other right now. I think that Tiktok is kind of become a pawn in the middle, and that's really what's happening. However I don't think you can. Discount, the fact that Tiktok is definitely owned by a Chinese company. There's no doubt that if the CCP wanted to put pressure on Tiktok to release user data or two, he'll give up information to them that they found valuable by dance. Probably have no choice but to say yes. can you tell us what we know about by dance as a company and its history? Yeah, so by dance came to prominence in twenty twelve, and they had these two apps that were really popular. I would consider them almost like attacks text version of tiktok innocence. One of them is kind of like Apple News, but extremely vulgar. The context in China here is that. Xi Jinping has come to power on. The biggest authoritarian since now, and he's cracking down on free speech in the country. Even more so so the newspapers are getting really boring. By, Dan's comes in and they make this APP. That's. Pulled in from all these different news outlets from all these independent bloggers, and it just gives you the juicy stuff, so that's kind of what they were known for so flash forward a couple of years. They actually got in trouble with the C.. p. and the CEO by dance had to make this crazy apology. But yeah, he was kind of know. The CEO of by death was kind of known in China as sort of like playboy silicon valley type who was really into titillating content. And then he made Tiktok, which is kind of kind of like their other APPs. Except instead of text based news, it was about Algorithm. Driven videos. They're gonNA. Show you the things you like the same way. They showed people in China the text the stories that they liked. And then they started expanding globally so by dentists kind of known for being this company that shows you what you more what you like, and it's often kind of vulgar, titillating stuff and now they're doing the video, so they bought a company called musically. If you're tool for Tiktok your way, she will for musically. which was this lip synching APP for tea and that Bite dance purchased a couple of years ago, and then they rebranded it into Tiktok. So you know by chance is not the. Best friend, but when you operate in China, you kind of have to see peace best friend and Lewis. Do they operate entirely in China, because some of the reports I've seen suggests that. TIKTOK has servers elsewhere in so in some ways that may make it more neutral in this whole fight. Is that true? Yes, so TIKTOK has said we keep data on US users outside of China. We have a new CEO. WHO's a former streaming executive from Disney you know we have thousands of employees. Now in the US were not subject to Chinese law I China asked us to handover data. We would say no, so they've kind of done these like symbolic. Decoupling guesses big term in China US relations, but by dentists kind of tried to distance itself from Beijing. In a number of different ways, but the reality is that the ownership structure is still there by dense still owns take top in full and In the past. We've seen TIKTOK cave to pressure from Beijing over content on the platform, right? We haven't seen that. caved to pressure. You'll their international APPs that they have keep the pressure inside China which are basically required to by law. But outside of the country, talk said know we would never listen to Beijing we have you know these community guidelines that are designed by people in the US are moderators or in the West. And that these are two different APPS. However, there's another version of tiktok in. China operates domestically but basically. I? Think that what's so interesting by dances? They're trying to do something that no other global. Tech Company has done before. which is that they want to dominate both within China and outside of China face wanted to do that. Google wanted to do that. And basically this EP, said no, so all of the concern about TIKTOK possibly being tool for data, harvesting and espionage. makes me think of The worry that people used to have about hardware coming out of China having back doors or possibilities of of A. A leaking data back to China like our IPHONES are made entirely in China. You know all of our networking hardware computers are made in China. Why is it that were so worried about software, and in particular this piece of software? When we're not as worried about the hardware well, first of all I think that a lot of security people would say to you. It's kind of ridiculous that we're not trying to lock down the supply chain, and instead we're worrying about the social media. Hey, that's the trump administration. But I think that there are two words with the software right like the first word people have is about Beijing sucking up data. I think that that is kind of a less immediate concern because you know. The Chinese government is hacking all sorts of entities all the time I'm not really sure that they need to jeopardize the future of one of their most valuable companies in order to get more data with already, have you? You know they you know the US officials accused of hacking the US personnel office for example a couple of years ago, and getting all this very juicy information on a lot of people who work for the American government..

"There are also certain accounts that teach diverse methods of cheating on tests, which really don't help them educationally, if anything it harms them, because if they get caught, the grids will go low and also does inspire destroy hard when they can just cheat. Education I think that really helps on with many are on their phones on Tiktok during class time, which is distracting them from learning, so the really not picking up any information so ticked harming them that way. Socially I. Believe Tiktok is actually very helpful. It helps setup popular trends I've seen people make friends on Tiktok Tiktok really good socially does have cy ruling as you discussed earlier, but cyberbullying actually really it is common on Tiktok, but it's not that common I think socially. TIKTOK is very helpful, but education leads not really that helpful. Aaron! What do you to say about that? Yeah I agree with your educational. The fact that like there are downsides in their upsides one hundred percent though I think more important even is, is the social aspect of it right? You have stuff like the black lives matter movement taking hold Oliver Tiktok, which is how you feel about it is certainly people expressing their opinions, and as an avocation or an evocation of speech. I, think that is a wonderful thing to see on Tiktok. However, as I've I've spoken to a friend of mine, who recounts the APP? She explained to me that there is a large. Issue on Tiktok for example, this one large celebrity I believe she's a singer. Madison beer as recently deleted the APP, because she found that her comments were inciting body shaming amongst other people, and were were hurting themselves internally because they were comparing themselves to her, and they're they're grew this whole culture of body shaming around the women in tiktok which is obviously a huge issue of, but might not necessarily be tectonics fault. Obviously, it is a video platform. You're allowed to see other people on that APP. APP and and that might just be a byproduct of of the current society that we live in though it is something to take into account, and maybe something that the US should investigate further if they if they so choose to to curate this APP to be more appealing or more constructive for children I talked to another friend of mine that that frequency up they they were citing the The ferry mean I. Don't know if you guys are familiar with that, but it's it's a tick. Tick Tock me. More users will leave a comment like a sarcastic comments against whatever was set in the video and post like emojis ferries, and it seem small, but I did hear someone voice a member of the LGBT community voice that it may come off as homophobic or anti Btcu in that regard, so I mean there's there's a lot of social downsides of TIKTOK. Though I think that is not necessarily something that tiktok promotes itself as a company, and I do not think that is. Is something that that tiktok necessarily from a technological standpoint it's it sounds a bit a crass or harsh to say this, but it's not necessarily something that has to fix though I personally believe that that's a huge issue among our youth. Myself included I. believe that it might not necessarily be. The companies are Aug. to regulate that, though though they should. In summary, the cultural issue around Tiktok is that while it promotes re speech can also turn into hate speech very quickly on that. Oh! Yeah. That is a problem that every kind of social media APP faces, you know facebook, instagram, snapchat, that is a problem that will seemingly always persist in society. No matter what kind of APP you have whether it's you know. Read it just commenting on Youtube..

"We you got a bit of really interesting executive movement this week where You have this name. I'm not a close follower of of Disney and Tiktok but I certainly knew the name Kevin Maher particularly because he was someone who everyone talked about being passed over for the Disney CEO role And it turns out. He's leaving Disney. What what what's the news? What happens yeah talk about a bolt out of the blue so yet earlier? This Week You know it came out through very carefully managed process by the company that Kevin Mayor who is the head of Disney streaming division is going to be taking on the role of US CEO of Tiktok and also CEO of which is the parent company that owns Tiktok and Kevin. Mayor is a longtime Disney. Employees has been there since actually the early ninety S. I was looking up his his resume the other day. So yeah I mean look. Disney has a a a lot of people who are lifers at the company. Just folks who live and breathe the mouse. And and Kevin's definitely one of them and he like you mentioned was someone who people saw as a real potential to be near the Bob. Iger replacement you know. He was kind of the muscle and brains a behind the Disney Disney's deal strategy which has really been like the company's engine over the last decade or so. They have bought Pixar they bought marvel they bought Lucasfilm and then they also brought bought assets major asset of Twentieth twenty-first Century Fox and Kevin was. It depends on who you talk to at the company but certainly no one's that he was a key player. Some will say maybe Bob Eiger was really the the shepherd behind it but regardless he was the Disney Deals Guy and win the company kind of reoriented around streaming when they announced Disney plus Kevin was named as the leader of this initiative. You know and they kind of created this whole segment of the company around him which is predominantly to lead Disney's new era and streaming but this kind of folded other businesses underneath it. I mean to me that has been like the keys project bet that Disney has been making over the past few years and it seems like it's been somewhat. They've what they wanted out of it. I mean look they. They announced Disney. Plus you know. In a very savvy press events an investor event last March so march of two thousand nineteen and they put out what they thought the subscriber projections. We're going to be in five years. The low end of that was sixty million. Well last May serve a couple of weeks ago when they had their earnings call. They said they're already fifty. Four and a half million subscribers to Disney plus so I mean they are now obviously. There's a lot of expectation managing that goes into these things but for them to hit. What was some people thought an aggressive five target in less than a year? Yeah they've knocked out of the park for right right with Hamilton. The probably going to get most of the English speaking world so okay. So what guy leaving? He's leaving the Disney kill holding onto. Kevin Mayor Rookies a lifer and had been leading the initiative. That's proven successful. So because he wanted something more much like America at the turn of the can't make a Hamilton reference. There probably could Kevin Mayor wanted. Look I can't speak to what he wanted. But there was very much an expectation inside the company that he was the leading candidate to get this job mostly because of how successful his tenure has been but didn't job. Yeah Bob Eiger sorry by is stepping down. Finally after many false attempts to do that at the end of next year and in February there was kind of another kind of surprise abrupt announcement that he named Bob Peck. Who is the head of parks and resorts to be his his immediate? To immediately named as CEO Bob Iger was stepping into this executive chairman role. And the whole thing was not handled particularly well you know. I and others have reported that Basically Kevin. Mayor was informed of this wall in the middle of a meeting over at Hulu. He did not have that much advance announcement. Disney was certainly trying to avoid any kind of leaks but there are people who say that the way that was handled kind of left a bad taste in his mouth but also you know people. Are I mean if you kind of start to see your success and maybe start to believe the hype you maybe think I really do? This was supposed to be my job now to be clear. Kevin Mayor has said in interviews and other outlets that he only took this. Tiktok job or left Disney. Because this was just an incredible amazing opportunity that you know. He couldn't he couldn't bear pass up also Disney pluses and such a great place that he felt comfortable stepping away from the company. While in this position so believe what you turn doing through great. They didn't anymore So what does need for Disney streaming going forward though? I mean it's still obviously closely watched in both attack an media. World's you reported a little bit this week on sort of what happened next to it right. Yeah well so the interesting thing to me and this is really you know. Kind of inside baseball for Disney. Is that? They immediately reorganized his unit so beyond just streaming Disney plus. Espn pleasant Hulu which existed under this group. He also had control of the Advertising Team. They reported up into him. And then also the cable business which is like. Espn the business of getting comcast and Cox to give Disney money for carrying all of those Disney owned channels. All of that reported up into him which people thought was kind of beyond the scope of what a streaming division really should be doing and so for reasons that will be interesting to watch playing out. They immediately moved those over to the TV networks and You know it's debatable. As to what the actual impact of this will be. But you know there are people who have said in the past the TV networks. Were really annoyed by the fact that they didn't have a central part of their business basically the advertising that appears next to their programs reporting up into them. And you know some people saw it kind of Kevin Mayors empire-building within the company to sort of control a huge amount of revenue to be clear we report in the story that this was not Kevin's decision to report into him. That this came from the board and and Bob Eiger himself but anyway that's sort of the nature of disagreement but it is noteworthy that immediately upon his leaving. They kind of dismantled parts of his division. I don't know if it's going to be a major problem for things that release just kind of line of reporting chains right now but it's definitely worth watching. What was the smart story? You always gotta do the unwinding of the Empire Story after the executive leads round. It's it's very experienced. It was okay so less. What is protect The it's You have this new. You know really high profile American executive coming into a company with That is sort of still a bit of a mystery to the rest of the tech world. Because you know the power of the somebody based in China but it's profile has grown substantially. It's APP downloads. Are are are growing rapidly. But it's also under these pretty you know intense regulatory pressures Zito in a moment where U s China relations aren't particularly strong so Yeah like how did you read this from a tick box back? There was a smart higher. It's fascinating I mean that to me is going to be one of the most compelling stories intact to watch play out over the next couple of years because it is such a hotbed of regulatory issues. Tiktok is such an interesting company. That is really. I mean maybe folks at the Hong Kong Bureau would disagree with me on this but I think it's one of the only Chinese companies. Have a true breakout hit in the US and obviously their political tensions between the US and China over a number of things but as a sense of how much of a hot seat job. This is hours after Kevin was announced as the CEO of Tiktok Holly. This kind of prominent Republican tech critic tweeted out like I'll see you and Senate sir. Yeah I mean it's just like we're going to you in your whole team up in front of a Senate panel to probably berate you with questions about China and whether this is spy APP and all kinds of unrelated things that Kevin has basically jumped right into and there's all kinds of fascinating things that Kevin is. Someone who is you know made his bones as a salesperson at Disney. He never really dealt with the political concerns that Disney had which Disney has had many. I mean they have huge business in China But that wasn't ever Kevin's purview. That was much more. The purview of Bob Eiger or even Bob Peck as head of Parks Disneyland. Shanghai Disneyland is a huge business for them so these are all the things that he is not as experienced in that he will have to step into in the next. You KNOW COUPLE MONTHS IN YEARS. as he he's in this job well chantel teams like It might be the right person for the job but also you know some of the key things he might need to do. Arnold directly hit skillset. But I will say to you know to his credit. He is someone who is a gain skills as he's been at Disney and there are a lot of people who were thinking. This guy had no business being the head of streaming division having never let large groups of people you'd always have kind of a tiny strategic strategic planning group within the company but ended up with thousands of employees and was successful in getting this thing off so. I'm sure he enjoys the challenge. This is a different challenge. This is this is intense right. Yeah well we have challenge of Memorial Day weekend while sheltering in place. Yeah no see we. All we all face different things to overcome Any any streaming picks by the way corey to to close at this podcast. Anything you recommend people to be over the long weekend. I just watched Who Lose Mrs America With Kate Blanchett As Phyllis Schlafly Sort of a a dramatized version of the Of the feminist movement in the sixties seventies apparently Gloria Steinem said in an interview this week that it was unrealistic. So take that for what you will pretty good job. It was from one of the producers of Madman pretty good. That's pretty good. I can throw out there another Hulu series. We should probably dedicated an episode to this later. Devs I just finished it. Look there their issues. We should all discuss it at a later date but it definitely was interesting one of the more interesting things I've seen in some time. Have you written about the Fx who partnership with those two shows trump? So yeah it made for very Made for a very bizarre experienced trying to find devs within the APP because it's not contained within who originals it's contained within the fx on.

Press and positivity and branding and just a lot of interesting things so I wanNA talk through. Does this platform makes sense. And if the answer is yes I'm GonNa give you some tips on how you can leverage this to help grow your local business so tick tock is an interesting platform. In the sense of it allows companies brands individuals influencers to really be themselves in a fun and unique way. So Tick Tock is made up of lots and lots and lots of really short videos and it tends to be the place where people are going to have fun and with everyone sitting at home and largely on social media. This platform has really started to gain some steam but the first question that I want to answer before I really go too deep in Tiktok and and how can you leverage it is to answer the question? Is this a good platform.

"Go. Before I get to the national security stuff with Tiktok, it's important to mention that the APP has been at the object of scrutiny for lots of different reasons, not just national security. One of those reasons is that the APP hasn't been terribly good at enforcing any sort of age restrictions, and so there have been some awful high profile cases in which the APP has played a part and putting kids in danger, for example, according to the South China Morning Post kids in Hong Kong potentially.

"You have the response video now. Ideally you would use this to add something of value to the original video to create duet. Maybe someone's singing in one video and you harmonize with them in the duet video, and then it's presented that way together. That's the intent of this feature. However, a lot of people use it in order to make fun of the original video in some way either to react to something that happens in the video in over the top way, or to just out and out, burn the person who created the first video. So you might post an earnest attempt to sing a song, and then you might see that your video shows up on a youtube. List that's being held up for mockery by some TIKTOK troll who gets most of their views by tearing down other people in tiktok culture, it's called Ironic Tiktok I think it's playing pretty fast and loose with the definition of irony, because because often the word ironic is being used in a place for something like mean-spirited. That being mean is not necessarily being ironic. The two are not synonymous. However, this isn't exactly new. I'm not pointing out something that has just popped up. This is not to say that this generation is particularly awful. I don't think that's true at all. The Internet has had plenty of forums and platforms where this stuff has happened Welna past. It's pretty widespread on Tiktok or at least on the secondary platforms like Youtube Instagram, but it's not like. This is a surprise right? The target demographic tiktok tends to be young people. Young people throughout most of history have often sought a. By. Making Fun of vulnerable targets, I mean that was true when I was a kid and the Internet didn't even really exist. At least not in the minds of kids, my age, the Internet was a thing, but none of us had access to it. The World Wide Web didn't exist yet when I was a kid, but kids were still you know, mean and picked on people. So this is definitely something that has been a thing for ages and ages and ages. It's just that tiktok enables it on a scale. That's much larger than what you could do. Do back when I was a kid like I might get fun of in front of the whole school, but that was a school of thirteen hundred people. It wasn't the whole Internet. So this creates a pretty unusual landscape. Right the APP itself isn't really plagued with trolling. Meanwhile, the secondary platforms like instagram and Youtube are much more likely to feature this videos and making it worse. A large percentage of tiktok audience are not watching the videos on Tiktok, a lot of them have never downloaded TIKTOK. They're watching the videos on these other platforms like instagram and Youtube. So they're seeing more of the cringe compilations and things of that nature, so your experiences with Tiktok really depend heavily on how you actually access the content. Now, not all of the ironic tiktok videos are mean-spirited. A lot of them are, but not all of them. Some are more absurdist humor. That doesn't really seem to have any kind of malicious intent. It's more like a very goofy reaction to a similarly goofy video, and not meant to be like wasn't that I, do terrible or whatever, but there are a lot of users who really do set out to make stuff that was either intended to belittle or insult, the original creator some are just making stuff. That is an overt attempt to be offensive. Probably for no other reason than they find it amusing to get an emotional reaction, other people. It's a classic troll behavior. Others might be using Tiktok to express some truly terrible beliefs that they hold like racist beliefs are misogynistic beliefs, because they see it as a way where they can express these things without there being any kind of consequence to that. But. Why are these secondary platforms presenting more toxic version of Tiktok in the first place? Why is it so popular? They're mostly has to do with how algorithms suss out which videos they should suggest to users videos the get a lot of engagement tend to rise to the top, because engagement translates to spending more time on that platform and spending more time on the platform means spending more. More time around ads spending more time around ads means that the platform makes more money, so you see how this drives decision making from a platform perspective, the platforms like Youtube and Instagram, our businesses and a driving motivator for business owners is to maximize profits so to do that.

"One consequence of this is that we don't tend to have very long memories when it comes to big events because we're flooded with notifications whenever the next big event happens, and because the Internet is global. There's always a big event happening somewhere, so it just becomes this sequence of big events. We'll take talk videos kind of taps into that in a little way. Video creators can become famous. Some may only achieve temporary notoriety, but other people have launched entire careers from TIKTOK and they make ironic observations about the world and media and memes that are going on at that time. Most videos use a soundtrack taken from established media such as a musical artist or a film, soundtrack or audio from a television show, and so to someone like me. The videos might appear silly or unimportant, because I'm a grumpy old man, but to a different generation it's an actual response whether conscious or otherwise to the environment that they're growing up in also because these tiktok videos rely so heavily on identifiable pop culture media, they tend to transcend barriers. Barriers like language, so they become really accessible Elena. The tone is really interesting to. There's a sort of self deprecating humor that runs through a lot of tiktok videos, which is a stark contrast to help. People tried to present themselves on other platforms like instagram on Instagram it's far more common to see someone present themselves in full blown self promotion mode so like look how awesome I am. Look how awesome my life is! Look! How awesome these products I enjoy our, don't you? What these products to like? That's kind of the perception of your typical instagram personality right? They are a person who are they're presenting themselves as a brand that interacts with other established brands. Well a lot of tiktok users seemed to use Tiktok in a totally different way. They're using TIKTOK in a way to kind of voice, their own insecurities, and to deal with that and to to sort of poke fun at themselves, self aware way as opposed to trying to present this kind of. Idealistic, vision of themselves. And on the APP that frequently goes fairly well..

These companies were skyrocketing in value in December two thousand seventeen. The deal was finalized for an undisclosed amount. Analysts estimate it was somewhere between eight hundred million dollars and one billion dollars, not a bad take for the developers of Music Lee who had started out with a failed effort to create an educational video tool. Early, wish my failures paid off like that now I'm being a bit snarky but I have to point out that the services were both doing really really well both before and after bite, dance acquired musical Lee by mid twenty, eighteen, musical Lee had one hundred million active monthly users, Tiktok, or do you had five hundred million users in China? And those users were generating tons of data, and they were devoutly watching lots of ads. As we all know, this is really valuable stuff particularly when?
