"When we met grant goings a few months ago he was holding a copy of the local newspaper and he was so proud of the story on the front page. It was about this new kind of municipal uber system in his town. So for like a Buck Fifty. You can call come pick you up. Take you to where you're going. We're super excited. Grandpa is a total wonderful civics nerd and for the past fifteen years. He's been the city manager of Wilson North Carolina. The city of Wilson has a population of about fifty thousand people. It's downtown is full of these giant old brick warehouses that used to be filled with tobacco. But now there's a microbrewery barbecue restaurants. This city has managed to transform itself into a manufacturing town they attracted bridgestone tyres and Merck pharmaceuticals but they were starting to worry about keeping those businesses because by the time grant got to Wilson in the mid two thousands. The city had a problem. It's Internet. They're hearing from businesses that the Internet not so great and maybe worse they were also hearing from the little league parents facilities would go down frequently and so someone will be halfway through registry the kid there would be some type of breaking service. They'd have to start. All over again. Crashed Little League registration in two thousand and five. I mean come on in other parts of the country. People were discovering nickelback online. Wire with no problem. The Internet could be so much better so grand goings called a meeting with the local Internet provider. Time Warner Cable and the local telephone company and then we sat down and we basically had a few Ask so number one was. We asked them to heavily. Invest in upgrading. The system we. We'd sort of felt like we knew that answer no interest. Yeah the answer was no time Warner cable. Now Charter didn't agree to an interview for this story but you can understand their answer. They're like. Why would the existing company invest a ton of money? Just to wind up with the same customers. They already have. It's a questionable business decision at best. But that's okay no problem. Gran had prepared option number to partner with us. What if Wilson pays to build the top of the line Internet infrastructure fiber optic cables? Then Time Warner could offer their service over these super fast lines town had built. The answer to that question was where the second largest cable provider in the country. Why would we partner with you? Which only left option number three? The city would do it alone. Grant told Time Warner fine. We'RE GOING TO BUILD. And run our own fiber optic network and that's when the laughing started and they very quickly exited after that they literally laughed at you in your office absolutely. Yes and have admitted that did that like light. A fire for you did for me. That's the day that you said it's on it's hello and welcome to planet money. Kenny Malone and I'm Wilson Fair no relation to the city of Wilson and not only would time Warner cable laugh in the city of Wilson's face. They would actively fight to stop the city from building. Faster Internet it is a fight that has now spread to dozens of other states. We started reporting the story before the pandemic. But it's more relevant than ever because this is a big part of the reason that it's very hard to move to little towns around the country and make a living working remotely
"So what are the guiding principles of creativity is that some of you very best ideas. Come out of sheer frustration products like honest tea or cliff bar olders dyson these all came about because their founders couldn't find the beverages or energy bars or shoes or or vacuum cleaners that they wanted so they invented them but in the case of Tristan Walker. I think it's safe to say that he didn't just start from a place of mild frustration. He actually started from a place of being fed up even angry because for most of his life he had felt completely league ignored totally overlooked whenever he walked into the shaving. I'll drugstore virtually all the big shaving brands were making products that worked well on men with relatively straight hair but tristen couldn't find a high quality razor that worked on his curly facial hair without leaving razor bumps olivarez neck Kajol line and he knew that like him many African American men were dealing with the exact same problem so he decided to design bevill a shaving system with a simple single blade razor that was easy on his face and he wanted everything about the product to look and feel great not like the dusty boxes of shaving products for African American men that we seem to be on the bottom shelves at the drugstore and his ambition to build a black owned and led consumer Marand as big as Johnson Johnson or proctor and gamble but of course when I tried to raise money from all those VC firms on sand hill road in Silicon Valley and he got a lot of knows but eventually he was able to launch his company with a razor some shaving cream but of oil and brush and over the past five years his brand has grown to include more than thirty specialized hair and beauty products for men and women which are now sold and lots of big retailers lers across the country a few weeks ago. Tristan sat down to tell me how he did it in front of a live audience at the Lincoln Theater in Washington. DC tristen Walker Central. I'll take it so let's start. Let's start at the beginning. Tell me about about out your childhood knew you grew up in Queens where I like to describe. It is a bit of the Rosa grew from concrete story. I grew up in Queens New York projects. It's Welfare Bouts of homelessness that sort of stuff right and I realized very early at one goal in life and as as wealthy as possible as quickly as possible Salaam. I realized three ways to do it. I was to be an actor athlete that didn't work second second was to work on Wall Street that didn't work in the last entrepreneurship and then thank goodness. I came to that realization. We were a little boy. A A your dad died. He was killed killed and you grew up with an older brother and your mom. What did your mom do yet for work so oh my mom worked three jobs mainly New York City Housing Authority Administrative Assistant? She spent some time working for Time Warner Cable and she did some retail all at the same time within seven days. I don't know how she did it. She did it. Thank goodness for her. It was not easy but she persevered and as a result of I think her perseverance good fortune beam I graduate college in my family and she she really in what what do you remember about like your neighborhood growing up as a kid I mean would did you do. Did you add in do much because I couldn't do much like my father was killed. When I was three years old? I don't remember too much about him other than the fact that he was killed when I was three years old which is a little bit telling to Kinda type of environment that I did grow up in so you know I lived probably the first six seven years of my life live in Jamaica Queens New York forty projects in the time I turned around seven years old. We moved to flushing Queens. Another project can development and it was much of the same right. My mother was like you're going to be the one you're not gonNa go through this stuff very disciplined. Stay home. Get Your studies and you're not going outside. When I snuck snuck outside? She caught me. I got in a lot of trouble but that was really kind of my life right. Get to school get home. Do you work repeat and you know that discipline actually Kinda got me to wearing them. Now school easy for you has a kid yeah. I was a good student because the discipline that was inspired me I always excelled right. I tended to be at least up until high school anyway at or near the top of my class you know and I kinda slow down when I say that stuff because by the time I got to high school. I realized I didn't even know what a verb was right. I wouldn't do this entire time. All the way up until my high school years doing really really well at the top of my class not even knowing what verb now and that sort of thing was as a teenager you ended up going to this really elite private boarding school hotchkiss in Connecticut the way I like to describe posh kisses is the first time I got to see how the other half lived. I went to school literally rockefellers Ford's right and I learned a couple of things first name mattered to being wealthy wasn't same as being rich and the last and probably the most important was I can compete with each and every one of them while while while I didn't know Oh what a verb was I learned and by the end of my four years they're you know on a roll like that. Sort of thing you know is then absolutely just wonderful experience for me but transformative in a little bit different from how I grew up was it was the transition for you when you got there because you were like fourteen years old. I've been living away from home since I was thirteen fourteen years old and were the first few months at hard for you. academically we get to the school and I realize I don't even have a computer and you know all of my other classmates had computers that sort of thing and I went to leave as the English professor who is my adviser at the time and I remember he took me to this basement. We're all used textbooks are and then he was old compaq like Presidio L. Computer that we had the like hall out and take it to my room so academically. It was very tough because I wasn't equipped with the tools to compete but over the years accelerating so you fish you go to Stony Brook University New York to study economics. Most most students don't necessarily know what they're gonNa do but did you have a sense of what you want to pursue their and what you thought you would do after I mean I was always thinking about the after I wanted to get wealthy yeah I was pretty singular in that help very singular in that hope and overtime that's kind of morphed and changed and the things that are important Ed Morrison changed but I knew I was very very very focused on how to get there and Wall Street was the next greatest option. All this silicon valley stuff at new idea about my world was New England so you're thinking do this degree and I'll go into finance plows e- economics is the closest degree we had at Stony Brook again to Wall Street Okay and in between my first and second year of university I got an internship and Lehman Brothers back office halfway through I I said I want to try some of this front office stuff so I left that enjoined trading desk at the time just observing so when you graduate so you you went actually went to work for Leman and then as a traitor and then everything and eventually JP Morgan in that time at that time time period. Did you still think this is what I should be doing. This is my sort of path to the worst years of my life. This is two thousand and five when I joined the company and as a traitor. Your job is to make money

"Counterfeit money, it's going to somehow report you. And if you print a gun, a legitimate three d. printer will report you and probably report you for other things as well, but that that's a really difficult thing to hope for because the best three d. printers on the consumer level are open source right now. And that's, I don't think that's just my. That's just my open source bias. That's a fact that they're all pretty much based on the same guts. So anybody can build a three d. printer with with the right bits and pieces. And if that continues to be the case, how are the people aren't going to build that sort of weird DRM into their own machines? I didn't say it would be easy conversation to have. There's going to be conflict and crackdowns and all kinds of things to object to. But I think that's that's the solution that's going to be put in front of us so we should be ready for that. Yeah, I think that's possible outcome possible scenario possible way of dealing with it, but will it be desirable? I highly doubt it and we'll, we'll motivated individuals with the the skill be using those. Absolutely not. All right. Well, moving on to maybe a more cheerful story here that charter slash spectrum is being kicked out of New York? Yeah. The state public service commission voted on Friday to revoke its approval of charters. 2016 purchase of Time Warner Cable and ordered charter to sell the former Time Warner Cable. I didn't know you could do this, but yeah, they apparently they service is so bad and we can all test to that anyone's ever been a customer either Time Warner Cable or spectrum can can can say this. But apparently if it gets to that level, the state can take action and actually revoke things at it. Approved in the past. Now knowing expects charter leave New York without a fight, and the company has confirmed that they, they, they plan to fight this tooth and now, but interesting development to that. We also got wind of group striking charters spectrum workers holding the picket line for nearly a year and a half have introduced. New business plan to break.

"If you're if you're interested I thought. This was a wild story and it'll. Be interesting to see what comes of it in the. News New York state is kicking out internet and cable. Providers, spectrum used to? Be called charter The state when charter merged. With spectrum which I think was Time Warner Cable in two thousand sixteen the state said Okay we'll let you. We'll let you do this but you have to roll out high speed internet, across rural areas which of course ruler, this is the big problem with the internet is that the internet service providers Not, being fools wire up. The cities with population densities high in the. Chance to make money is great But are, much less, interested in rural areas where there might be one person in every square mile and that means you know you're going to have to wire up somebody miles from the office and And try somehow to recoup. That, loss, so they don't like to do it they don't wanna do, they don't do it. Frankly and I thought this was a reasonable. Request? The state of New York said to spec your Mari well merger we understand could cost you money, to wire up these people but they need it it's very important that everybody have the internet right. I think we'd, agree on, that and you're gonna make so much money on New York City alone That this should be worth it for you fair enough company said sure fair then didn't do anything This happens, by, the way all the time Cable, companies in order to get into a city they. Have to get, the approval of the, locality sometimes the city usually the city county maybe the state to to. Go in there because they have a monopoly you notice. There's only one cable company, in your area that's it almost every. Place and that's because it's a regional monopoly That's allowed the. FCC, said, okay, but you know the. Local government has to prove. It you have to bargain for it it's for a, certain, term, and in the bargaining these companies. Offer a lot of stuff here in in our little northern California area Comcast is dominant northern California Comcast. Promised to do all sorts of things wire up. The schools oh, public internet all sorts, of things not none of that happened but imagine yourself a member of. The city council saying alright Comcast hasn't lived up to. Their promises we're gonna kick, them out and we'll find somebody else Hey you better find somebody else be the voters are not, going, to be happy, when their internet stops working and their. Cable TV maybe more important when. They're cable TV stops working so it's really unusual, for any locality to say look you're not living up to your promises you gotta. Get outta here you you, you didn't live up to you I mean they have the contractual. Right, to, do, so but that's politically. Difficult so it's really interesting. The state and not only is the state kicking spectrum, out, there, saying you have to keep operating. For the next two months while we find somebody else And you have to pay us three million dollars in penalties this was all contractually specified two years. Ago at during the merger The company says, we'll wait a minute. Hold on now quote we've extended the reach of our advanced broadband network they getting a little, plug in we get the best we got the advanced broadband. Network to more than eighty six thousand New York homes and businesses Yeah but but the contract said you had expanded to an additional hundred forty five thousand New York state public service commission chairman John road said charters noncompliance, and brazenly, disrespectful behavior toward New York state in its customers necessitates the. Action, taken today seeking court ordered penalties for its failures and revoking the charter merger approval Wow, New, York, is there's only a few states big enough to do this New York's a big one right it's, a lot that's a lot of customers because of the city I'm sure, charter will. Drag its feet appeal be upset I'm sure. They'll fight this like? Crazy. And if you're in New York state I wonder what you know there's. Probably a little trepidation my. Gotcha? We're gonna lose. Their cable TV and internet what's going to happen Because you know that. Seems like, two months for the first state to find a state government to find a, replacement good luck on the other hand, it's such a lucrative market. Maybe maybe the other guy maybe Comcast as well what we'll do that we'll do that we could do, that, and yeah we'll wire all those rural people do. That next. Over the. Next, five, years. Five, years later. Than, they have it then we'll see. What happens but I like? Seeing a little a little spunk. A little spine from the from the state government they. Hey you didn't do what you were. Supposed to do it happens so rarely, well well done now let's. See now let's see what, the upshot. Is will it actually happen that that's the. That's the question Mark To me that's, the, happy story of the day now of course there's. Lots of. Unhappiness technology. Seems, lately, to. Be, filled with. Unhappy, stories Russian hackers assaulting our grid. Facebook just ignoring privacy rights you know? That kind of thing Let's, see, let's see if I, can find, another another happy story Nope nah no Twitter's kicking off the trolls it actually killed Twitter's stock, price by about nineteen percent because the stock market says to Twitter you've got to grow. Your tech company that means. You gotta doubling every year or something you, gotta have insane growth Twitter has been very stagnant about three hundred some million monthly active users now because they booted off a small number by the way of. Bots and. Trolls only about a million in the last three months The stock market punished them by dropping their price twenty percent It's hard because that's the right thing, to do right you wanna kick these, Russian trolls, and bots and you know these imaginary. Sock puppet Twitter accounts you want to get. Rid of them I lost, about five percent of. My followers, I think some lost more, but that's, a fraction I mean I would guess looking at you know who's following me about half the people following me and most. People somewhere around a, third to a half. Are fake accounts they're not real accounts not, run by humans they should get rid of. All of them, but, imagine what the stock market would do if Twitter said yeah we. Just we just kicked off a hundred million people in there. So they do a. Little bit, and they still get kicked here's. A fun one you know. We're all talking about face recognition, this. Is the sad one we're all talking about face recognition technology Amazon's got one called a recognition with, a k. And they're and. They're selling it, ran, in it it's not expensive to law enforcement you think this would. Be a good idea law enforcement has a bunch of mugshots. They have an unsolved. Crime they, have video or a picture of. Of the criminal they can. Match it up and say oh, we. Got you problem is and it's a big problem The. Face recognition has been trained mostly with, white, men so it's. Terrible with people of color in fact A whole lot. Of mistakes ACLU decided to run the twenty five mugshot database, against the members of congress And Turns out Congress is full. Of purpose Six members of the of the. Black caucus Congressional Black caucus six members. Were flagged as as felons I think a. Total of twenty six eight people crazy These obviously they're not twenty eight members of congress falsely matched. With the, mugshot, database, because this stuff works so poorly Amazon said no no you only set it for eighty, percent. Probability said it for ninety nine percent probably oh okay Eighty percents seems fairly, high They tested it against all five hundred thirty eight members of, the house and the Senate and they found that turns. Out, it's full of crooks, well that may be true but it's not these crooks eighty. Eight eighty eight s. Leo that's the. Phone, number let's talk high-tech?
