"It. I'M GONNA call interrupt your work to talk about that. We're Golf Matt's between Tom. Brady and Peyton manning and those other two guys right after we talk about Avatar. The last air bender. You're on but there was one really positive. Finding and Adam survey that probably matters more than the other things. One of most important things was increased. Productivity overall there were more companies saying that working from home had made their workers more productive than there were companies saying that it made them less productive. Suggesting that working from home isn't just something. That's Nice for some workers. It can also be good for company's bottom lines as well but of course whenever something changes this quickly and this drastically leap. Not Everything is going to go smoothly. According to the companies in the survey one thing that is not working very well with employees. Stay home is technology. That is not a shocker. And anyone who's ever been on a conference call knows that you know these things never go his plans so Adams's these texts numbers will probably be fixed over time as people get more and more used to using these new systems from home so I actually expect that if you ask these same people who stuck it out. You know three six. Maybe twelve months down the road I think. Technological issues would probably declined in importance. The second problem which is just part of fix right now is it. Schools are not open so a lot of workers are just stuck at home pulling double duty work and parenting and that is a tough environment to do work. In but of course in the Post Pandemic Future Schools will reopen and parents working from home. We'll get that time back. Still Adam says there is a third problem with working from home. The is reduced team cohesion. This one is a big deal. The office social place that can satisfy a real human need for personal connection. The collaboration in jokes celebrating accomplishments together. All that stuff is hard to replicate on zoom chat and some of US really miss it but it also matters for economic reasons yes because when people are close to one another and can discuss ideas together new and better ideas can often come from those interactions. So you get more creativity more innovation. It's hard to exactly qualifier measure. But there's something in the air about being around workers who are working on the same sorts of problems as you are not just in the office but you know socially in the in the same geography and this is one of the reasons that so many companies set up their offices in densely packed cities where the workers can be near a lot of other workers who are just working on those same ideas the same problems in the same solutions so we'll companies risk losing that special magic by allowing their employees to be apart. Not just working from home in different cities but maybe even scattered all throughout the country or the world. Adam predicts that they will risk it now that they've been forced to try leading workers. Stay home companies are going to see that the magic in the air can be replicated by magic in the bites in the digital space and as an example Adam points to how this very podcast episode. That you're listening to right now came about it. Came about from a niece corner of twitter were Stacey and I spend a lot of time economics twitter because we are so cool. No denying that and we're one day many years ago we bumped into atom. You know economics quarter of twitter. There's absolutely something in the air and there are a lot of great ideas that come out of there and you learn a lot from being there and there are a lot of what you might think of his chance encounters. Do you come here often. Like three to four hours a day to be honest with you way more often than I should or maybe most cool bar at the moment. I don't know maybe both I don't even know and Adams's if enough companies are convinced these benefits of working remotely then. It could have a really big effect on the economy and on the country. The more Lauren things are that they're gonNA need less office. Space AND OFFICE SPACE COSTS MONEY. And also once you go fully remote you hire workers from anywhere in the country and that really opens up sort of were basically your labor market and it makes it easier to find the the right work for the job wherever they're located. It is still really in this big experiment. That companies are running in having their worker. Stay home and there are real trade-offs to working from home permanently that we'd might just not realize yet but if Adam is right and if more companies do allow workers to stay home then a lot of workers themselves will also end up having more options for where they can live. They won't have to be where their colleagues in their bosses are. They won't have to live in a place they might not like to do. A job. Do like today's episode of the indicator was produced by Lena. Since Gary Fat check by Britney Cronin edited by Paddy Hirsch and the indicator is a production of NPR..

"Hey everyone and stacey here this is the indicator from planet money even before the coronavirus pandemic the share of people working from home in the US had already been growing but the acceleration that we've seen in just the past. Few months has been pretty incredible and the numbers can be hard to pin down. But at least according to one survey from economists the share of workers in the US that had been working remotely before the pandemic was about fifteen percent but by last month it was close to fifty percent. Roughly half of all workers are outside of their workplace now. So that's a massive increase in what we're really seeing is. It's a giant experiment with remote work to see how it goes for people. That is Adam. The chief economist at up a company that connects freelance workers with the businesses. Who Need Freelance Workers? And I think that remote work requires a lot of sort of what it comes called learning by doing. Which is that. You don't really know how to do it until you do it. Here is what Adam found in recent study of his. Let's say you compare yourself against another worker in a very similar position as yours so that someone around your same age same sex in your same industry your same level of education and even someone who lives in the same state but there's this one difference you had the option of working from home during coronavirus of the person did not well. You had about thirty three percent lower chance of losing your job then that other person because of course you could keep working and now a lot of companies like twitter and facebook are changing their plans for the future announcing that some of their workers will be able to work from home permanently even after the coronavirus pandemic passes and since they've been forced to do this experiment. I think a lot of them are GONNA learn. It works a lot better than they thought it would. And that we will see sort of an acceleration of a trend that was already underway for longtime time but aside from a few high profile announcements we just have not had much good data on how much the overall trend of working from home has accelerated because of the pandemic until now right after the break. Adam shares with us. The findings of his latest project released in fact just this morning hot off the presses and we take a look at the big effects that this trend bite have for how we work and even how we live support for this podcast and the following message come from Microsoft teams where you can contribute to meetings from anywhere chat with coworkers and find all your files in one place ready to unleash.

"He's very so this book by Jacqueline Willing. Behind me quote extreme ownership he has a very particular view on leadership of coming from the seal team They ve very much favour this idea of hierarchy. This idea of operational commodity. That's how things get done. You know be able being in charge of a platoon of people you have to have some kind of processes in place that allow the rule of law to cover the top and it to be action by puts him. But there's also a concept that you can also feed up some fit because feedback some insights to the people that are talk. And they can disseminate information as they need be but the most important things that people at the top leaders they take extreme ownership everything that goes wrong with the company. The company is usually a reflection of the leaders. You have in your in your startup. Your copy work for every company that been been amazing as usually come from the company created by the person at the top. Every company has kind of Shitty has usually come from the frictions. I exist where people at the top of it. We can do attested that same sort of findings in anywhere persona and partly this covy has seen leaders being able to lock things down looked has been implemented very well across the board. They looked things down. People stayed away from people. You know look pubs and social gathering places. Where you couldn't go out you stayed indoors your obeyed but when it comes to reopen the economy or when it comes to inactive some good practices when you go out. Socially people are little. The government are a little bit. Shittier that regard why they don't really take take onus ownership and looked taking responsibility Case in point Dominic Cummings to take to the two hundred sixty mile round trip and having no sense of responsibility of how that looks the optics of a really bad. The fact that he said about President doesn't register right. He all allowed to kind of ox. Request the public for one thing but it do the complete opposite in your life. Because you given that kind of Lear give leeway because you're in charge but then recognizing that you're essentially eroding the kind of collective agreement by doing that thing on your own you kind of abiding by the rules so in place of that people having to police themselves which is really dangerous right because you get this. That's where vigilantes vigilantism comes from or beat of genetic culture of that kind of guys because if the rule of law is a been agreed is agreed upon by the collective and people above enforcing it that we're GonNa have to somehow ourselves. That's how feasible that's been adjusted for. Dentists are kind of birthed. And you're seeing video here from new. York is a very much an explanation of that. Is it credible video somewhere new where holds a shop essentially screaming this person because they refused to where mosque in a shopping center in the shop somewhere? I imagine Paul two reasons because most shops in the US have implemented this This policy that you WANNA shop. You have to wear a mosque so there is this kind of accepted notion that in order to shop. You need to have a face mask on regardless if you don't want to wear run outside and you did say that to come into a building of any so you have to wear face most and some people obviously have turned into a political issue. They've kind of seen way face buskers as not wearing a face. A constitutional right. Is it a freedom they wanNA diet can die Blah Blah Blah Blah? But it's it gets really slippery and this is. The problem of having leaders are accountable for to take responsibility for their actions. Belief in the front is you get people dead succumb into this which looks just crazy. Ill counts for the person that comes to shop of Moscone and mavs off and so that are kind of hounded about in.

"To say to stop myself getting distracted. I make sure I turn all the notifications and APP cones off of my phone so I can't be interrupted. I tend to go into applications when I'm ready to take those messages other things. Do well removed the batteries from my doorbell. So I'm not interrupted during conference calls and Webber's say did it too much stuff. People that always always wanted like what level of self control are you an like an power was overrated and you have to put some kind of yet to put some procedure you have to put some processes in place in order for you to be the most effective self. I know that but this idea that you have to delete APPs take batteries out doorbells and shit ton of your photos just so you can do. Your work is really really grim. It shows. Just how fucking tethered at Hyde? We ought to our phones in it. The grade in our fucking nervous system that we have to kind of turn them off electronically. Take the batteries road for us to be detached from we. Just do our work for an hour cover meser myself. When I I get distracted pretty easily. The places I've worked as common kind of feedback. I've been gone from like marriages and Shit but when I do the work I do but one thing I did when I was at school. Wells got behind the Jesus season. Catch up into revision is I just kind of Bill up our vision timetable. That was essentially join out similar to my week by week schedule in school so if I had science on the Monday Monday motive for two hours. I'll just revise sites with two hours right but what I do is I'll cut it into that. Twenty minute chunks. Do Twenty minutes of kind of focused study little five minute do break look out. The window draws a Vegan incident twenty minutes again focus study and just continued going on with that system until the point where I could. I could hold my concentration for the two hours on our half without break. I buy anything I could do that very easily. And I had a room with Nintendo sixty four hundred a PS four a mobile Internet Ida full of distractions comic books and Shit traitors stuff. I could always come and get lost in that to able just to kind of focus in on that and do the things that's really import because it's going to be an occasion every there's not going to be every case is going to allow you to take away. Those kind of external of distractions going to be a case. It's like someone that called work at a busy coffee shop like what you have to always be the library. You have to always be in a coke especially there's no room you have to work at a coffee shop. What are you GonNa do in or look music? Get to learn how to work in music. Learned to work out. Learn how to work with distractions around you. That's the best way to go because especially working from home. There's going be some times where you might WANNA change. The scenery is is advantageous to be able to walk into anywhere especially is set for going to go to that place because that places choir goes into sudden u-turn up there and there's a big team meeting conference kind of froze you off kilter to deliver homework. Continue working from home is that you are getting out and meeting New People days they'd be exist. You can go wherever you on remote. Let's it doesn't matter. Web Era a local pope or your local office. Place them to go wherever you need to be now. The downside of working from home and remote will as having a conversation with other people so not in the same environment every single week it can be very isolated comedy very low in life and you end up doing things that you don't nominates and then scroll it on social media time and not getting focused on what you should be doing the opposite myself really. Maybe it's just me I find I concentrate way more home. But maybe it's against the temperament of the person. I concentrate a lot more than I would do at work and are prone to spend less on my phone than I am at work at work. I try and do everything but work for some reason. I'm not sure why maybe because I'm in the back. Made him a spit someone to distract me or because I catch up or something. Most of my best work work has come from working from home and then once I have to go to t meeting or do like a powwow in whatever I can come to that meeting definitely. I think you guys can attest is if you've kind of worked in isolation and you had to kind of come together and sort of like present your work before you present it to the company. There's a lot more energy a lot more a lot more ideas a lot. More kind of intuition and innovative creative ideas that come to. Because you'd be. I said her you eager to show off to your colleagues and you eager to present something so you can take that to the office in general. I think that happens more often than no. I will smell it. Continues to sit here Was that the charity. Mind has raised concerns. Some workers may through isolate lovely. Just get used come on. Let's grow up a little bit one of the biggest things I hate about working from home which is quite lovingly and it's really hard to block off whereas Co workspace you can have that work life balance and it's brilliant fair a adjustment if you're lonely and you really people around you go to co Working Space Mosque spaces allow you to just sit in a reception for free. I'm sure nowadays is going to be. Maybe a change in that effect. They might be a past that you can buy. I'm sure there'd be coca basis like that where you can buy like a pass allows to kind of sit in there for fifty quitting week or something. I don't know there's GonNa be some opposition as skeleton exist especially if you live in areas that are nearer to your offices right if you live in the hipster areas. There's going to be probably more opposite like that. If you're living in areas like myself out of the way might have to travel in but you know option of course if you want to start your own little space. You can't do so I think that'd be a really cool idea for someone to start up. Space allows to come coming. Have some coffees? Sit Down so out to people. Maybe have a drink at the end of the month when his payday you get some drinks? People can have a loo- governor around that allows me to kind of be broken up a little bit. I think that'd be pretty cool. Buffing this idea that you're gonNA be lonely. Lonely is a little bit of overstatement and again is excited domino workplace because it means that the most people go missing is only the kind of chastity have people in your office but you know. I think bias bias. A good option go forward and of course dedicate works really important so you need that you need that kind of separation anyway. Continue on a couple more before end. Here this is funny. And this woman did Leadership leadership leadership leadership. I think this is Extreme ownership this book by joker wounded a really good book on leadership. Obviously.

These executive in time is going to be great for the morale of the team in general. And it's GonNa be great because it's going to allow owners as well just to really identify.

Says the game is up for the office as we know it suggested Bruce Daisy Who is offer of joint work says? Unfortunately we might get misty. Eyed by offices in the form of it used to be is probably nothing to pass. I was trying to someone who works. I major media outlet last week and he said he used to have one thousand four hundred people coming into his office every day for the last eight weeks he had people and the product hasn't changed. He said anyone who thinks things are going to go back to the way they are but honest which is definitely true. Just can't justify and that's a bank rising fifty three million of forty five minute. Sorry I don't think most companies spend that but you have to imagine just by what you know take into effect. Try and think about close friend. You have who lives in London? Who has a really nice apartment and think about what they pay and then think about what? It must be like to rent an office. Space somewhere in person lives is just insane and into pre Internet and utility bills. That Shit like Oh Insane. It continues you. It says but the current into the office is not click says Professor Andrei Spicer from State University. Cass business school. He predicts a radical decrease in the amount of time people spend in. Your fisker says of office work will not be over for good. One really suggests that homeworkers tend to not get promoted as quickly as they tend to be overlooked. That's not really that's true. But if you whole workforce is working from home they're gonNA have to implement some kind of procedures that allow people to get promotions quarterly reviews year reviews back people up tree to kind of say their piece put a hand ring for for a vacancy. That comes up. Maybe an maybe internal hiring system. There's GonNa be things are going to put in place but I don't think everyone's working from home. It's going to affect you because you're the only one that's turned up the office because there's a lot of people especially in the companies. I've worked and if you have a work from home option the people that take the piss out most are usually the managers right. You're the one that you know they come the most it's usually underlings. The kind of the employees are quote unquote. The the people on the frontline who actually have to kind of bite the bullet and come in most of the time drew Christmas. And everyone's kind of fucking off that really get fucked up the shit. I don't really think really affects. The people are actually the top. If you really think about it so I don't fit idea. They're going to build this thing and also a fitness aspect of if you're gonNA work from home there's an opportunity for you to maybe change the way. The office environment actually works. You can still have an option. You have the possibility of making it. Mandatory or making you up or making encouraged to come in at the end of the month for a company all hands on the Friday and it turns a company all heads into a really joyce occasion because people are going to have the opportunity to see their friends again from the office. Right connect catch up about stuff that spoke about slack They're going to be incarcerated.

He would just kind of you know critics and commentators from the outside always these kind of reservations. But if you were actually working as you would actually have jobs in startups. Who've what's these corporate companies you know that most of the time especially if you're having to travel a far distance you have to go to like the side of London to pay for trouble 'cause PAS through certain zones or bus tickets every kind of you know have a full fifty minute bike.

So that's usually what people do affect us as many of us have already discovered. Some of the perks of the problems are working from her. Some of your snow commute less chance associated with colleagues but others go through the hall identity. Qua- says I think we should Ohio worldwide. How what we're losing says Lucy Kellaway who has written a book about fiction and nonfiction about officers. I think the most important thing about office is it gives more because some sort of meetings what we do most of what we do not tops. Let's face it. It's pretty much meaningless. The best way of thinking. There's some point is our people are saying around the year but I don't find a good idea. I think if any covered look down to us. What's meaningful is your friends and family being able to touch feel hug Speak to hang around people that you care about. Real is what the world should be about. Most of ood is kind of like fake Level Work Friendships. That you kind of cultivate because you have no one else to talk to you because you spend all your time when your this isn't healthiest good for your mental right. You need to have that separation be able to go to work do your job and also go home and a connect with your family and friends and not feel like every kind of conversation. Yeah we defend me. Friends revolves around people that you work with. That is not a life worth living. I think this separation is going to be for. The better is going to increase and really. It's really it's going to really separate the friendships that you have and also kind of is going to bring. You're going to see. The benefits of having worked. Colleagues is friends. Would you meet them every week to own heads or to have like a company meeting or to do standup wherever you may be? And you're GONNA have the benefit of unplugging and pulling out and see your engine a week and catching up with drinks. I think those two perfect things but yet somehow lose identity because you know your friend is ridiculous. You shouldn't you shouldn't be identity anyway. Your identity should be the things that you do for your friends and family in your community. Not The work that you do that money that you the money you made to keep the last one. That's ridiculous there's on your sir. A group of people a small segment of the population. Baby working in a vocation that they've kind of long love to do so a kid fair Napa for the most part where most of us are working companies. Jobs that we could give ship out but we do it because you know we want to be a valuable member of society. Want to contribute to the household bills. When it's a pool our family keep a roof over our heads pay for holidays all that good share and companies are willing to Kinda give that exchange. They give you money you give them time. Boom you keep it going Blah says she has the office Keeps US sane and gives us routine and once there and once we're there we can be different person. I don't know about you but mostly sick and tired of being the same person all day as I start around your home. What the fuck by Lewis's sane. You why are you being a different person when he goes to work anyway? I've always hated people different faces when they're at work yourself. If you can't be yourself for the patient working at maybe go somewhere else right. That's a really healthy. You kind of turning into different people switching tiny. That's a problem that you see when people go to like when people have worked drinks and somebody gets a little bit you know maybe someone gets a little bit. Hansie or they get a little bit aggressive or there's a little bit belligerent right. Because you don't necessarily see this of at work because they try and keep this professional over the top of the face when their local type no be yourself and why would you have your identity framed around defendant? You do for ninety five hours of work. It doesn't make any sense. I wanted to have a different clothes. Goats your see different people and who become a lifelong friend. Couple complete love with them here. But you can do that when you're to how routine wake up a certain time Shower in the morning. That's something I've been doing a consistently waking up in the morning audiobook during meditation sharing in the morning changing it to some comfortable clothes. Look not pajamas and kind of going out. Closed but comfortable closed either. I've been if kind of get dressed those fees and you could also have also give you some level of routine it. We don't need to go to the office to do That's going to be really detrimental. Some people is this kind of social aspect of work law. People generally don't have any friends like legitimately think they collect in life. Because it's hard to find unless you have an interest. I guess it's too hot to say. Yeah it's hard to find friends over the age of maybe twenty one. It's just difficult to get new friends so some people you click friends once. They're at work. Because you're kind of forced to get no people because you would eight hours a day. I six hours a week right. It's just something to kind of have passed happen of a period of time. But I think it's going to say if it works for him but he's going to allow you to be valued actual frigid. You have work and it's also going to allow you to actually value with the you know outside of outside of your occupation. I would imagine so. Imagine it's the one bit people are going to suffer from the idea of having able to be able to chit and maybe that might be a real side indictment on culture where the defendant you miss. The most is the chats because you know this. Let's be honest. I'm the find of nine to five bucks. You are working for somebody right. They are paying you to go into the office and worked for them to find that you miss the social side of it is a really really bad indictment on yourself and the overall idea of working in an office right the fact that the social side is something that you missed the most chess the coffee machine about those suspect. That's Nuncios it says here. Professors Spicer says attitudes studies. Show that people who work from home. I'm all productive and happier especially the commute at one of the big factors that make people happy. But among the downside she cites study showed homeworkers that they are in exile..

"I've seen a lot more American people on twitter complaining about washing their plates or having to make their own cocktails and do UK people.

Run by food like the people for the social Not Complain that much about it for the most part but again the opportunity to the holidays work at home to kind of have the ability to kind of go out stretcher legs pick up little cocktail drinks anyway back while this is a podcast album is Peru much a good thing to do anyway and especially if you think about it going forward if we end up living in a world where remote offices are the thing right where we all working kind of From remote offices or working from home it probably is advantageous to put people to have these habits set in place to have these procedures to have these kind of Protocols in place where you can go to restaurant and pick up a cocktail without feeling you have to sit down on. Bless and keep moving. Because I think that's a good thing right. It's kind of rewiring people's brains to be able to kind of entertain yourself in that regard. Maybe a little bit to be to be able to kind of make those things fun because there was a time when you remember that instagram account table for one and people were like you know kind of taken the. Piss people that went out and sort of like you know had something to eat on their own now most than ever. I'd imagine if you're living in a house in a shed household probably will see a lot more people going out on their own. Once our there was stuff opens up just so they can get away from their housemates. So won't be that much of a taboo anymore. So maybe having these little may practicing these you know. Pickups vessels being able to figure out what kind of works and maybe having some off the works specials payday specials on Friday specials kind of gets. That kind of worker is a great way to go about things. And maybe it's going to be contagious. And Industry or industry is software for within WHO KNOWS DRINKS. Mix on the premises must be combined Must be a combo spirits and mixers which means Baas who want to sell a Martini. Need to add a splash of orange juice to the Jin to stay within. The letter of the law is interesting because it means that you know those guys selling Nutcrackers in the state in New York. That's going to be a legal thing now. Do you think nutcracker sales are going up? I wonder if they have that like a featured of vice once where they solve like all these fruit juices and different cheap liquors into a bunch essentially really colorful punches and it usually freeze them and bring them up and put them in kind of you know Freeze Books Yeti Books Shit and sling the Middle Street corner or possible. Cool every kind of people gathered around and they get people super waved Because they don't necessarily measured them. I'll call the putting them so. Imagine if if nutcrackers became thing that moonshine let local people kind of set up blue breweries or something or Cocteau Stanton. I'm sure this happening. I'm sure there's happily been little rural communities or just in general Within the states I'm pretty sure says why COTIJA why into go. Cops is not included in this and cocktails made with wine eva so so angry is off the table to think you behind this as many rituals than previous invested in expanded wind permit allowing them to sell take. Why would be buffets? Let them everyone do it. Yeah so I like the idea behind it. I think it's GonNa be really cool to see the innovations behind the packaging the labeling how are they going to market the the kind of shifting the I did you know you can actually cause I'm might be such a by default state legitimately being able to carry a kilo bowl new way? Herb and have a Nashville drink as you're kind of challenge your friend facetime sheet. I must be a real bunch of so it's going to be. Tikolo of getting used to image of some people. You know for your colleagues. Are they going to be like guess? Seema eater check it out if you're that way inclined Nixon list tr. Let's keep on rolling loads of topics to talk about that the actually. Let's talk about this woman talking about social distancing and working from home right. That's really cool article. I saw about working from her from the BBC. Where is it? I can show you here before I continue that the it was it was whereas it should be here somewhere intimate. Yeah they're so Where we ever go back to the office right. But he's doing it without here somewhere headed listed here on. What's the future so copied that one get that done K So this article who is from the BBC right. So what's the future of the office and What's the future forty of his administration supporter of remote? Were working for a while. I think having to stop industry for most of my career and worked in various kinds of corporate companies to I've worked in every I was in the company from Like I've been a fiftieth employee of also five hundred employees about in imbo skills and everything in between and have no especially in places. I've enjoyed the most places are kind of aligned to my career goal places where I felt comfortable places where people were similar interests as mine and I've kind of in line to the company goes through that good stuff. I've always felt as if like the open plan. Working space was very Dick wasn't constructive for for like focus. Hard work especially when required you to maybe implement a product setup service campaign running things that kind kinda required a lot of mental acumen. And some kind of level of concentration. Don't lend themselves well to an office where you can essentially kind look up and kind of see. Your work makes shower ever get their attention. Make them come over to and spoil their work Kind of workflow and also does people around you and you know knowing myself. I'm allowed person when I once I get going is hard to turn me off. So you know you can just imagine what that must be like with people like myself office and people who are louder or more garrison. I it can be a complete kind of horror show so I've always you know this kind of I did that. Open classic kind of work where you like. People segmented infant teams had people looks and offices was kind of went by the by was made to be on cool was really a really kind of a side idea and I did it. Somehow because open plan we're going to collaborate in never really come to fruition any company you've been. I'm sure you can kind of test to it. The idea that you're going to collaborate with your teammate. Because you can kind of look over your see. Them is preposterous right. People you enough people don't like no I if you don't if you don't let them so I think they're corona virus is effectively done is is effective for management would actually kind of other show cooler manage because they're just glorified employees. Jack themselves off right but people would actually found companies. Now she start them. I think they've definitely realized once they look at the list of people's list of employees in the output. They've been able to kind of really focusing on that. People are actually pulling their weight and actually contributing large amounts or actually contributing some kind of effective strategies or whatever they do making some big changes in the company and the people that aren't doing so what works whereas we don't put it in putting away. It's really easy to see what people work from home because it kind of levels of plainfield and allows people to see exactly. Who's doing the work and went because they're are destruction effectively. You have the privilege of from home so there is a kind of a mutual at. There's a kind of mutual expectation that you should be given a bit more and if you're going to give it more should be to a certain level because you know you've been giving his of privilege but coronavirus is put aside that kind of you know weird so of like Intrinsic Guilt trip is solving. I've been put aside and just people just able to. Kinda just do their work get it because so much amount of wanking off and kind of you know getting distracted by Youtube you can do your look down because he gets a bit boring and actually do you. Work is quite fun during the best work you can do. And being Freddie remember the team is quite beneficial for yourself are career and those around you so I think it's made its change everything enough show for the people that own these companies to soaring prices and rent especially in London. They're paying right to be effectively offices. Just officers are less so to a less to do with the extra employees and Madhu the board members and potential investors especially in startup. Would you can't deny that having a having the we work postcode somewhere in the middle of London is to add some kind of level of cachet some kind of level of luster and glitter to your name. T- reputations are starting up because of investors of VC's value we worked to have a place in a culture blah blah blah. Right you know what games kind of goes from. But I think now what we're going to see is maybe an influx of more startups kind of launching and kind of coming out from the reefer. Because they're going to feel as if like they finally got a chance to compete with companies. Because they're going to be given a fair cracking the whip regardless of whether officers base because no have a corporate head office. My have satellite offices appear where they kind of click male or place they they can collect meetings but the idea that you could walk into acussed swanky startup office with you know. They're kind of logo at the front and a pet dog that runs on your his. That's going to be completely gone and I think that's a really great thing to see going forward. I can't wait to see this article from the BBC Echo. Somebody's forced speaking quickly for it. So it says Before the coronavirus pandemic was where millions of our spent about a third of our time however since lockdown almost half. Uk WORKFORCE. Say they've been working from home. And some companies of hinted it will become the future. His quote said the notion of Point. Seven Thousand People Building. Maybe a finger pause said the boss of Barclays. Well Morgan Stanley's chief said the bank will have much less real estate businessman. Sir Martin Sorrell said they'd rather invest the fray five million. He spent on expensive offices in people instead. Which is insane thing that they'll do any way the good idea. And it also goes to show just how a bandwagon -I and Copycat. The business industry is a moment. One person does something and it works or the moment the industry kind of changes tact everyone for the suit and everyone kind of breads. A same. Chorus is same conversation.

"Honesty man. It's really funny. I recommend you check it out. It's interesting because comedies. In a really interested in space especially stand up specials because of this you know over energies because this over personalization with identity politics and this would might read. What does the honesty honestly taking these? The worst thing in the world it seems like it kind of has a moment. Fled the twenty minutes way. It's sort of like spikes your allergy symptoms. Then it kind of levels out. But Hey Mama Mia godless summer and some not. Oh okay so common place due to Identity Politics and history. That's all good stuff. So there's this weird if an undercurrent wet industry is sort of my push garriga stereo away from industry steering away from promoting all kinds of showcasing quote unquote sis white males and you know for kind of giving a platform to marginalize people who don't necessarily have a voice in Hollywood God. Jesus say about this topic allergy allergic narrow. I'll go away. But Hey what can you do to? Maybe might be at time texting me one so. Forgive me again if you listened to the podcast. Sapper really really apologize. Sneezing is probably very disconcerting. And if you what should be the youtube of course apologies for seeing any kind of big Rigetti all over my face but you as I was saying about Mark Newman so no normal really funny basically one of the more funnier guest up here on that kind of La Comedy crew circuit basically because he's a new comedian so he kinda tends to be a bit more jokey less about the you know everything else outside of jokes that image their branding much. We'll about the the comedy bang. Bang Bang on. The style is very much based on the quintessential South Punchline There is a there. There are some stories into we'd here and there but for the most part just him going on there and just kind of weaving together this narrative of these stories basically fences temperature how he does jokes so really clean really well done very well produced. I'd have to a put onto youtube. I think there should be more of a dry for communities to do so. I know a lot them kind of want to have developed nation from the industry to have a special on the big networks. Understand it but I think now in the climate renou considering Kobe and lockdown and considering the you know the the prevalence of podcasts within the community is with comedy circuit. It's only natural is only only makes sense for you to allow the same people that kind of consumer content for free on Youtube. And he's pat from. Podcast is still have option to view some of your standard special on the interests of free. They want to then pay for later on on another platform. Be If you if fed us if you want to do so but I think you should be able to kind of close the loop in that regard into that way especially one or two. I think you know. Comedians could probably go away for doing an hour special every two years. Maybe a couple of commits every year and maybe fame especially just from for free on the on the twitter so that would be appropriate. A good way to go about doing things I think Ford but by the by again one of my favorite Comedians On the Indian. She'd seen really funny guy. Give him if you haven't already in check out his standup special could out for lunch available now Nixon List here we have holy Shit. This is amazing. This is a really cool. Little Gadget. Invention a Costa coffee is run is rolling out. Guess in no delegations Ju to because every opening in the UK so this is a really clever idea. So essentially little video from Costa Coffee and this is our new. Dr Fru shelves have been getting lots of love Who's seen these inaction so when you go to dry food of this little compartment down the sumit has a leave on your end that kind of lower and you can kind of bring the drinks closer to and take them out yourself which is great because you know most dry for windows. Some some drafty windows are kind of a wit high order bit fervor away or not aware high or you call actually get up close to them if you're in a car so it makes it awkward because of Covid and you know because covert in the pandemic you want to limit the amount of touch points you have with the customer. So if you're able to somehow make omissions on are able to alleviate the fears by bringing their merchandise closer to dim without you handing it to them s going to be perfect and I think by like the lot of things with all these kind of innovation. Socially and to technology into infrastructure we've seen a companies seen companies favor working from her as opposed to working officers which then allowing look at the books and see how much money they're wasting on. You know big big room. Offices in the middle of central London may be custom millions and millions of pounds every single year. They're kinda cutting back on that. And maybe having a few satellites office up here and therefore upper management and team meetings and stuff. I'm also thinking that diesel of innovations were never table but they have been rushed. Because of Cova Dakota being rushed forward because of covid and a pandemic has to kind of you have to innovate you. Nudity kind of get us back to some level of normality. Think Ford this something that's going to have to be kept in place anyway regardless so it should be issue and offering the idea of protecting the workers an some aspect to is really important as well in these of service industry jobs by a lot more companies adopt the same tech where versus you know Mcdonalds the bag king wherever fast food joint. You kinda go to have the same options. Would I be pre equivalency of go forward by a great new invention by cost? I'd like to see how it kind of gets implemented. I'm sure customers are happy. Move it too because you get your food quickly and easily there's aspects of world that you can see there's kind of a pardon me you know when you get something for a driver and get your catch up but you have to look inside the by to check it. This might be an aspect where you can kind of as you get your from the Azure. Because there's a bit of a a separation in between mechanical arm. It kind of allows you to not feel guilty for requesting something that you probably missed out on ketchup or a source that my bill could into your meal. Maybe that's unfair. I'm not sure but I think is really cool. Take you see whatever ever faucet drapes rolling up very reassume research to Sima a love. Love love and Lovett Gray invasion from cost cost enough much much more popular. I feel like in the UK as opposed to starbucks overall. Maybe it's because you know they have their little kiosks and a little machine set up in like supermarkets right. They haven't been is it. Same tests goes on same you. He's not sure. But if if I see more people carrying around costume bags of coffee than I do them. Seeing occurring around starbucks dollar show ever see in the kind of hipster of opposition and stuff like in love with street or should it should whatever you don't necessarily see people like actual ends. Will you might live carrying gloss little cups of starbucks. Maybe because most of the people that do by starbucks are pro to carrying around a little refillable cup to show by. I got feeling that's the case. But maybe again maybe it's partly just because they've got they'll kill up in supermarkets. I might mean that they are able to kind of touch a broader customer base. I'm not too sure. What do I know moving on moving on up in Innovation that's pushing people closer to the future is Cocteau's to go in America which is something quite perplexing in when you go to America you realize how weird it is that you actually drink outside on the streets like you can't just grab a beer or you know. God Vodka Industry swigging street which is very bizarre considering the amount of nonsense they get up to the states right demand of crazy happened on a day-to-day basis at somehow. Drinking on the street is a big worry for the police. I guess in general the no one no police officers to write your particular for drinking on the street. You might get warning but I guess no one wants to do the paperwork of taking it to Joan. I'd imagine so so it's probably something that's Kinda you can kinda work around and I'm sure people do that. You know that thing you see moves time we always have a paper bag around it which is dumb because you know we all know what you're drinking if you call paper bag on your drinking or keeping it cool you just showing no season. You're drinking a fucking white claw at night in the morning but this news comes from. Isa Says Cocteau to go are now legal in Pennsylvania. It says a Cocteau's go and now league in Pennsylvania off the legislation temporarily relaxing the strict liquor laws passed the state Senate last week and was signed into law by Governor. Tom Wolfe Thursday. This major change for state owned starting to allow grocery store so a few years ago is effectively immediately restaurants with the right permit Colonel Russo. Beer wine for takeout. Which again is something? That kind of came about because of a little silver lining is allowing some restaurants. That probably couldn't get away with pobably. Doesn't I'd imagine you have to sell a lot of alcohol to make it profitable I'd imagine covert as property caused or more than hogged liquor sales in restaurants a general. Because you know if you have a full restaurant of people teaming you know all the Energy Aska around people getting waved. They're probably have this weird effective kind of encouraging or more drinks maybe ambience. I don't know there's something in it being on probably encourage people to drink more as if you ordering a fucking beggar to go from a really no one restaurant you probably not going to drink as much as if you actually indie establishment. That's part because about saying to add on a little bit I don't sell with. The alcohol is probably something day on the taken for granted off your interested industry in America and I guess something that would probably have been implemented unaligned bug and Kovalyov like Rushdie's fingers into effect it continues to says under the new law restaurants.

That's a realize has been at issue for most people when it comes to get lockdown like my drinking has definitely increased. I don't drink as much every day but I do drink. I do drink little sips here most days in the week which adds up to at the end of the weekend whereas beforehand when you were able to live normal lives. You'd go to work nine to five. This isn't really a time to drink Monday to Thursday Friday. Unless you've got a team bonding thing to get up drinking on the Friday Sunday right. Those are the options available to Independent on. If you have money you spend money on travel and you just broke for the month. Whatever there's little there's always use constraints are in place that allow you to drink or light to not drink. But I've noticed doors and we'll have lots of this possible link come because we get furloughed. We get paid for to work at her. Essentially moving anywhere. We're cooking everything home. You go lows of disposable income so when it comes to drinking you're more susceptible and willing to like throw you'll twenty seven pounds twenty four pounds a year and therefore bought whiskey. And then. Because it's you know you don't want to have a hangover every little sips wash meet. You have a whole bevy of liquor your cupboard that you hold onto and I would love to have a little bit more drinks. Actually I know for sure. Have the the Reu free of that show? I actually like to have a little bar actually have the room for that and number two is. Why don't WanNa get into Habil available but for sure? This is the longest. I've had one bottle of whisky around the home. Because you know there's nothing else to do really so I feel that behavior. Could you do so? I figured I'd situation about it. We'll go food as well. My friends here. So but knows is really really run into these allergies. Play Absolute Games on me. They would be one second wall so I decided to blow. This may be the wire. I try my best look.

"And now back to the conversation with Dr Trae. Ceo Nicole Egan Nicole Black. You said before at the very beginning of this conversation. These hackers are sophisticated. Attacks are sophisticated in and of themselves. We know they're going to happen. So the reaction now should be. How can we improve our own ability to combat these fights? How can we build a cyber immune system because we're going to get a cold someday but we want to make sure that we don't get in ninety? How can we adjust so if you had to say what the easiest way would be for? The people listening to this to adjust their own new realities of working from home of using their work tools in their home. What what's the step number one? They should be taking a step number. One is increased your awareness about. What's what you're connecting to choose? You're using what else is connected in your home to your home Wifi router so increase your overall level of awareness. The second thing I'd say is the phishing attacks Unfortunately most of the new Couva nineteen domain registrations are not to the CDC A or two up organizations and yet the attackers will do what's called spoofing and they'll make it look like that's where the coming from for example a recent attack absolutely on said it was a CDC in nineteen but it was registered to Al Domain. Fisa valid. Right so hard to believe this is using. Aol exactly so the amount of vigilance. I think you have to use when you're looking your emails. Is this somebody who you normally do with hover over the name to see the full e mail address so these are types of things? I think that we really have to be on the lookout for in a conference call or video conferencing security use a password using unique password. Each way use the waiting room. So you know who's coming in and if you see something that says like caller three and it doesn't have a name associated with it find out who caller three is and if no one can confirm their caller three then kick them off also know simple tips like close down or lock down your video conference once all of the attendees were supposed to be our in our in I and again most of the technologies today allow us to take those steps so those are just some quick tips at each of us can do on a personal level out not only protect ourselves but remember we're also protecting our companies so that we're not that low hanging fruit some unused to get inside. You hate to be that person Nicole. Can WE COUNT ON THE COMPANIES. Who tools were using to put up these walls to defend us. If we need them are are. Should we be considering some sort of a third party tool to use for ourselves? How much can we rely on the companies that we used to keep ourselves safe? I think when when you break down the security industry there some different sectors of it and one is called the firewalls right. So firewalls are the part. That's kind of trying to harden the shell the corporate network. Whoa one of the challenges right now for better worse with firewalls is now where we're is that corporate network right it all of a sudden sitting in each of our home offices right and so that's made it very porous and much more difficult so firewalls still played a very important role. They're still protecting Princeton's the data center and the on premise network but it might be a bit challenging for them to reach out and protect each of us in our home. The next kind of sector is very important. It's called email security and there's a whole category called email gateways and those are pretty much firewalls for your e mail system so again they're trying to keep a spam from getting in there the way they work is they actually have a list of noon bad. So they'll try to take those bad new cove sites and they'll try to register them as fast as they can find out that they're bad but with the volume of them happening. It's too late to register known bad. It's just a flawed kind of approach. It's always out of date answer. That's again where the machine learning can come in where it's not relying on predefine noon bad and the reality is each of us switch from tool throughout our day. We're always multitasking. And so we need something that gives our security teams in our. It teams a broader purview. Of almost think of it as behavioral security. How can you use machine learning to learn you and it goes with you everywhere you go? And that's I think the big shift instead of having very silo tool centric security. We'RE GONNA move probably to more of a risk based people based behavioral based approach to security interesting. You see this as the kind of event that would breed more of these. Let's get an IT department conversations. We can enable through artificial intelligence and machine learning machine to fight back itself against the attack. Even if you have the security staff and they're very talented and they're very hard working these secons. These attacks rather can happen in Split seconds. It happens faster than even experienced. Security person can respond to if you go back three or four years ago now during the Sony attack we were talking about the fact that the attacker had been in Sony for over two hundred days before they found it. If you think about the attacks you read about in here now. The attackers are literally have gotten this skill. Set down where they can attack within an hour within minutes sometimes within seconds we in fact stops in attack from happening on a global manufacturing company the attack would have taken down their entire global system and all their manufacturing plants in less than ninety seconds Natto. Fast now these attacks are moving so we have no choice but to rely on machine learning. This is an interesting conversation that I WANNA have about. One is kind of going to stop feeling like we're in the Matrix but really quickly going to take a short break to hear from our partner like most of you. I have a lot of APPs on my phone and the APP I probably use. The.

"We promised she would be coming back by the end of the week end. It is now the end of the week. Our senior personal tacoma's to Aniston is back with us with her favorite work from home tech. Tips Joanna thanks for being back to be back. Have you been this week? I've been doing well. I heard through the Internet grapevine that you have a specific tip for me today and I'm curious about this. Tell me that's right. Well when we started this project Qatari I created a document and I listed out some of the things that I wanted to cover in terms from working from home like gathered stuff that our readers had been interested in you wrote in the document. How do I clean my gadgets? Not just the phone which I know you had just covered and I thought okay. Maybe we'll get to that. We have a lot of other important things to get to but here we are on week. Six seven thousand or seven thousand depending and I thought this was a very important topic because we have been sitting at our desks now for a number of weeks and we've might be eating lunch at them and we might be eating snacks so it's time to clean you. GotTa get a good micro fiber cloth and some good screen gadget cleaner. If you can't buy that you can make your own. I've made my own. I have a spray bottle. With seventy percent ISOPROPYL alcohol in it. And you want to spray on the microphone cloth and then wipe down all the surfaces on the keyboard specifically because that is one of the dirtiest areas. Make sure that that cloth isn't too wet and never spray directly on the keyboard because the water could get in there or whatever the solution you're using could get in there. I also did this for when preparing to write this tip. I dumped my my keyboard over my laptop keyboard over and I don't want to talk about what fell out of there so do that. Be careful and one thing I should say is that I did a couple of weeks ago. Do a piece on cleaning your phone and I did try to wipe down the phone a lot of times. Like over a hundred. Actually we had over five hundred wipe downs with clorox wipes and the reason I did. This was to see if that would actually damage the screen and turns out it. So you don't really have to worry about clorox wipes on your screens whether it be your phone your laptop or your computer screen perfect That sounds like a great weekend project. Another thing I know I'm going to be doing this. Weekend IS VIDEO CONFERENCING WITH FAMILY. Last week we talked about how to. Zoom Zoom videoconferencing APPS. But we had a lot of people asking. What about skype? So do you have any hidden tricks for skype? Yeah you sort of have to feel bad for skype. They were the one of the first. Yeah they were one of the first. They were one of the first to come to the IPHONE even before facetime. This was like you know they. They'd invented the future they were. They had the future like we were going to have video calling everywhere and then everyone just didn't use skype but turns out a lot of people. Do use skype still at least for business or for talking to people because they just have this on their computers and skype has gotten a lot better over the last few years. It is very easy to choose your background or change your background. You can do that. When you're you've got the window up on a macro. Pc and you see the little video icon if you hover over that icon with your mouse. It will say choose your background and you can go there and you can blur. Your background gives it a Nice Blur or you can upload a new image just like you can zoom. They've added that another thing. I really like about skype. Is They have subtitles. So if you click in that same area you can never go wrong. Yeah I mean. They're not fully accurate but they can be very funny to watch too. But you really do. Get the gist of what people are saying. And it's a it's a nice way especially if you're hard of hearing and you're not following the conversation it's a way to see what what's being said and also actually does a very nice job of highlighting who is talking so it does then the subtitle next to the person who is in the window seems to be talking. You can turn this on by again on the video. Chat Window on the right hand side on a macro. You'll see these. Three little dots horizontal dots. Click on there and it will say turn on. Subtitles are eight one more. We know that you're a big fan of noise cancelling headphones we've talked about that before but we have heard from some of our listeners that they can't work with music blasting even though they really like those headphones so do you have any advice for them to or it's white noise. I personally can work with music on but I have been trying this out and you don't have to go by a special machine you can and there are some really good ones out there for that but you can fire up your spotify or apple music and you can search for white noise and they have a bunch of playlist and albums to my favorite on spotify. You can search coffee shops and for those of US okay. Fine me who misses working in a coffee shop. I used to go rate coffeeshops pretty much every weekend. You can get background noise. It's like a coffee shop and you can also search office and you'll get some nice office sound so if you missed the sounds of paper rustling or just sort of chatter that it. It might really help you the vending machine. I don't know if they have a sound for that. It's actually just made angrily begging it when my thing get stuck which should make one.

We've almost fifty minutes crazy. This is getting to the questions that people were asking. So I picked these questions from sets in online for and Online communities that. I'm a part of me parts of these questions before asking for it though he could answer them on the podcast so someone says how can you construct a dedicated workspace if you do not have another room shoes as an office? I think this question can go for like Bush students in so what is such A? Because most people don't have off in the homes like where we will. Most people don't have offices in homes bringing back to school. Most people don't have stadiums and the our homes. So I follow you Tuba an productivity Guru Call Thomas Frank and folks about This youtube video. Where he he's saying that you know it's that the idea is that it's not really about Having different room by small ball creates in a visual separation from everything you drew and then whic because so sling that bids was happening Your attention rights engine is trying to block out other stimuli in your view when he wick so if there's anything in your view you kind of want to eliminate that so you can actually focus own doing because then your muscles are always keen to try and block out What's it is destruction you as well as to focus on. What's your reading? Whatever you're doing so I think An actionable thing that you can't do this guy if there's no way if you don't have an office in like e you're just in your room and you have a desk. You can remove your desk to face the wall so that we are working. You only start the wall like you don't have to see your PS console.

We I do because some of them reading newhouse maintain balance in idols. So 'cause like for me the question of am I doing enough is always at the back of my mind I have. I think I actually have have have a fear of not doing enough so I can't really maintain balance. I don't know how to switch off like you said upon with sometimes when I fall asleep my mind will be on for quite a while before I'm able to sleep So yeah is is is Working from whom?

So we you know we kind of knew 'cause it's for you and wants to make sure that it's helpful to you. Yeah so the episode was. I just came up with some questions that we could kind of like. Talk around in. Just be honest and share It's important new book rejoin. I feel students and we were also like work as a guest so we will be alternating between School and work and I think this is very helpful because audience It's largely people who who still. Yeah how how has it been so far for you off a year we acres? What sorry sorry for the labs in I think was a bit of a yeah drain every recording remotely so these things will happen to like so. Yeah this is just let us know how has been for you so waking from home and why stop for rain independent Guinea. In the beginning I was actually pretty excited. I know have into to physically present at work so just behind me left for my bid in late in my bidding to like remote control central rain. I'll be doing everything from a bid by it's really not it's been like that. I mean this thing has given me like a weakening of recalibrate my entire way in school schedule around. The 'cause you know isn't the Internet's is the actually has more distractions than I would like. I would be researching on something in Dan. I'll get an education that you know. Amanda just had this interview some way into Aqaba on Youtube and which in one interview Indians. Who which twenty interviews in my detail run outs and I would hope to you know. Get more detail when I give them with the muscles Monday in at the end of the thankfully one line of its hundred Research you know I'm really. I'm really doing this thing. Stereo like like everyone's life normally no but I think I think I think especially like now in Ghana and maybe in other African countries. It's a necessary expensive. I think this is like a real issue for like lots of people and even adults of as students who are still doing. Zoom University is a lot of bandwidth. Spain's they suspends zoom in these classes and even gets no group meetings on here I think for me. I don't really feel sorry for myself because I'm thinking about the moment that's waking from kids like big just car win like these people have been turned into preschool teachers. They're helping with homework. The supervising naptime place. I was like you don't want your child drinking so on the conference score is like over here and like a Yemeni Biz B. Sent the children as own. Who is really is not easy out here for you know a lot of people. So I I think about these people. I think that I think I'm residual time like I am actually spending time with my parents which is very rare for me because While this semester is ongoing I hardly come and normally when I come with like a very quick in and out so I probably get home in the evening I just coming slowly and then I see them for a bit in the morning and the non off boxes so this is kind of like a good time for me.

I don't think that people were sort of like wandering. It's like coping mechanisms. You don't like hard people like what I doing in this time to be cooking. Do you have any like actually I think I think. I think I can go first on this year so in terms of how I am copying is honest keeping raeside schedule guys like I really like structure.

Instagram is targeting fake coronavirus news
"This week. Instagram announced. Big changes in how it will moderate content on its platform to try to stop the spread of disinformation around Kovic. Nineteen instagram said. Tuesday it will aggressively take down some content in de prioritize accounts that aren't from trusted sources. That's in line. With what parent company Facebook is doing and what social media platforms have teamed up to try to do as well but the truth is this moderation is really really tricky partly because of technology and partly because of the demands of the pandemic itself. Alex Stay Moses Director of the Stanford Internet Observatory and former chief information security officer at facebook. He told me. Content moderators have all been sent home for privacy and safety reasons a content moderator. That's all they do. They spent all day looking at content in that includes content. That might be private. That might be in private groups that might be in direct messages between users and the like and so as a result a lot of work goes into protecting the privacy those users to make sure that that private information does not leave the computer of the content moderator and you do a bunch of technical protections to make sure. They're not just kind of walking around and looking people's information although singer extremely difficult or impossible to do at home. And so if you send your tens of thousands of content moderators home. You end up having to make a decision of whether or not you want them to work. But if you do so you're going to have to loosen the privacy protections that have been used to protect users data the best now it sounds like these platforms are relying a lot more heavily on machine learning in one case we you know. We saw facebook sort of accidentally taking down almost everything that mentioned corona virus. What are the Trade Offs? And is there any way around mistakes? So you're right that the companies are going to have to rely a lot more on machine learning and so as you change the ratio for the number of people making judgments in the number of machines that are applying those judgments. Then you never really end up with less accuracy and that means you might take down content. That should not be and it might mean you miss badly but I think that's exactly the kind of thing we're going to have to get more used to. Yeah it's kind of interesting. I feel like it seems like potentially some of the limitations but maybe also some of the efficacy of these tools might come into clearer. Focus now right especially. Since the Christ's church shooting which there is a huge push for more content. Moderation in the truth is machine. Learning is not that smart. We're GONNA see a lot more content. Moderation that does not take the subtleties of human communication of comedy of sarcasm of repeating some kind of phrase because you're criticizing it. All of those things are classically difficult for these companies to deal with. They've had to in those situations punt that out of the machines to humans but now those humans are working from home. There's a real trade off between People's privacy and doing a better job with content moderation. So what do you think this will look like? Well they have to err on the side of more intensive. I guess censorship for lack of a better word I think every platform is going to have to make their own calculation And to be frank I think politicians and the media are going to have to be more realistic. About what kind of speech control do we want at scale and the truth is there's been kind of a moral panic around tech platforms especially social media for the last couple of years where the human problems that are reflected online the immediate response from politicians and the media is we want the tech companies to fix it right and it turns out that asking these companies to do that level of control of speech in a complicated society? Like ours has downsides that was always true but the fact that these companies are now having to deal with these issues shorthanded with way less human intervention. I think he's going to bring that into sharper relief. Yeah absolutely if you see platforms basically say okay. We'll wholesale we will have to block all information. Nobody'll be happy but clearly if misinformation gets through lives are lost as a result. That's ends up being a problem for platforms. Also I mean. Is this a lose lose? I guess I think there is no way that you can solve the societal problems by making the speech. That reflects those problems. Go Away Right The other court issue here is that in a number of these areas but especially Corona Virus. A lot of the misinformation is coming from public officials right and so in a situation where the president of the United States is saying things. That aren't true then. The entire media and social media environment is going to struggle with how to deal with it right and I think this is actually the other side of the coin of the discussion of whether the media should still carry. Trump's news conferences. Live Is it's clearly newsworthy. Any in the president says from the podium in the White House but if it's both newsworthy and untrue or newsworthy and harmful what is the responsibility of both the media and then the social media intermediaries to either put more information around that rabbiting context and so far. What they've been trying to do is to counter that elite misinformation with direct links to sources like the CDC and like and so as long as hopefully their parts of the government that are still somewhat independent in that are sharing information that is still trustworthy and reliable. They they still do have an option that you next to a Donald Trump facebook poster tweet that they can also have a link directly to the CDC and then allow people to make their decision where does attack. Advertising mechanisms fit into this conversation. If at all so when you look at disinformation as a problem over all you have to deal with it. In a different way for different kinds of products in the the online product that is most risky is advertising and for two reasons one. Advertising allows people to trade money for speech application and the second is advertising one of the only ways that you can put information in front of somebody who did not ask to see it right so the number one determinate of what is on. Somebody's facebook newsfeed. Is who their friends are and who they follow right on twitter at two. You've decided to follow so you've made affirmative decision that these are the people that want to hear from. Advertising bypasses all that allows people for whom you have no relationship to take information to put it on your screen and that can be incredibly powerful for commercial purposes but it can also be very risky from a disinflation perspective. I think most of the companies have banned in this case when you talk about Corona virus. It's a little bit easier than the general political issue issue in that. There's a handful of terms that you can ban right. And what a number of companies have done is they have by default banned any use of certain words in their advertising. What you see now is that advertisers are coming. Apple euphemisms In this case people talk about the illness or the virus or you some kind of euphemism and not sacred virus or cove for like but there is an interesting question on the commercial platforms like the ebays. The amazons of what is the appropriate response? Here it is not illegal to sell masks it is not illegal to make a profit off of it except in some certain circumstances but it might be kind of morally reprehensible in some ways although medical professionals are also getting PP and masks via some of these platforms. So I think it's actually very difficult. Balancing Act of. Do you allow normal commerce to happen even in a situation where the things that are being sold are you should be rationed and given to very specific people overall? There doesn't seem to be very much legal guidance and I think this is the kind of place where you actually want states in the federal government to step in. Because there's a lot of different ways you can sell stuff online and without guidelines across multiple companies. Anything that any individual company does is going to be an effective
"wfh" Discussed on Techmeme Ride Home
"Of awkward transition to talking about tech and the response to this. But I'm just curious what's your take and you. You're you're as plugged into this as I am. What's your take on the fact that it clearly was tech twitter and especially VC twitter? That was on top of this like six weeks ago like before before Valentine's Day for sure but maybe even earlier than that like it was definitely tech advisor twitter. That was like guys. Batten down the hatches. Something's Comin' well. It was also a public health and epidemiologist twitter exposed to s right. Right Right I think for people in Tech. You know he's he's You know are they have to be sitting around Green Trend? Forecasting that they're traveling more anyway. They may have investment in the world so he doesn't in a way. It doesn't surprise me One thing that somebody that I thought was really interesting. Was You know your attitude toward this? Like really cuts across all political lines. And it's very surprising to is Saying what can so. It was really funny. There's this incredible moment when you on Moscow's Lake Kerr. Virus panic is dumb and then hog room. People responded You know like you. Don't want to underestimate the way that exponential and there's a perfect distillation of how like. Yes there were a lot of people who were way ahead of this. But there was also depending on your predisposition people really and added. Mickey'll yeah was it you that just re tweeted that the tweet earlier today about how alon is somebody who wants to prepare for like an extinction level event and take to Mars but then at the same time it seems that we not concerned about an immediate crisis in terms of a pandemic that double up is an agency that helps content creators influencers podcasters youtubers patriots stands literally anyone create a business around subscription models and Freeman.
