Doesn't get to the issues

This is corporate pablum.

Fascinating listen

Very commendable of someone so powerful to put his thoughts out there and speak to people who hold him to account. You can hear in the long silences that a lot of what is said he does not agree with. He uses it to defend Facebook a lot which is understandable and he sets out his thoughts well. A must listen to anyone interested in how social media is controlled and is controlling us and governance around the world.

Great discussion

I have to say I think zuckerberg has done a great job with this podcast. As CEO of one of the largest listed companies in the world, he has a lot of stakeholders to protect BUT he allows himself to be questioned (reasonably aggressively - and rightly so) by one of the greatest intellectuals and historians of our time. Facebook has huge issues, let’s face it. I rarely use it any more and never post. But this conversation made me think zuckerberg is aware and addressing some of these issues and hopefully the juggernaut that is Facebook is in the process of changing into a much better and more sensitive product, more aligned with our real ‘long-term’ needs as human beings and can augment our lives rather than be a short term fix which we immediately regret indulging.
