  • Social media
    • Social media…At its most basic sense, social media is a shift in how people discover, read and share news, information and content . It's a fusion of sociology and technology, transforming monologues (one to many) into dialogues (many to many) and is the democratization of information, transforming people from content readers into publishers.

    • Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness .
  • Twitter
    • “ Starting today, we give ourselves the ability to reactively withhold content from users in a specific country”
  • when we are required to withhold a Tweet in a specific country
    • we will attempt to let the user know,
    • we will clearly mark when the content has been withheld.
    • As part of that transparency, we’ve expanded our partnership with Chilling Effects
  • privacy

    • Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
  • if law ignores technology, technology will rule us.
  • Only technology (spot the ethical dilemma?)
  • Problem 1: We are stupid
  • Problem 2: We don’ t know what we don ’ t know
  • Problem 3: difference between who I want to be & who I am…
  • Problem 4: The keepers of algorithms know this
  • There have always been gatekeepers.
