    The Nonprofit Fighting Online Child Sex Abuse Needs a Tech Upgrade

    The Nonprofit Fighting Online Child Sex Abuse Needs a Tech Upgrade

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, or NCMEC, wasn’t created to serve as the nation’s central system for detecting child exploitation online, but for the past 25 years, that’s what it’s done. A WSJ analysis and a Stanford report found that the nonprofit is contending with outdated technology and legal constraints as the number of reports soars. WSJ technology reporter Jeff Horwitz tells host Alex Ossola why change might be on the way. Plus, WSJ Heard on the Street columnist Dan Gallagher talks about what analysts are looking for in Meta’s first-quarter earnings tomorrow.

Host fruit salad recently

As a several years long listener, I have come to look forward to Zoe Thomas’s chipper delivery and have realized a host needs some time off occasionally. This podcast used to recognize when Ms Thomas was away with a statement like, “I’m Julie Chang in for Zoe Thomas” but recently Zoe is away and a fruit salad of hosts are presenting but there has been no mention of when Ms Thomas might return. She is missed.

Good content, not a fan of 2x daily

I don’t know why so many people hate on the hosts or hate on their commentary. It’s called news, and anyone, including Elon, can spout disinformation. Anyway, you all are doing a good job. Don’t listen to the haters.

As a constructive critique, please revert to once daily. I never listen to the second, minute-ish long episode. There’s not enough content to be useful in my view. Anyway, keep up the good work.

Not exactly happy ,

Tech lite sprinkled with opinion

A couple of stars for the occasional insight into new tech or trends. Just need to stomach the opinion or high level understanding of a topic. As an example, disparaging Elon Musk and citing opinions from “experts in disinformation “ and politicians is rather idiotic. Two groups of people that have never built anything.
