There is a reason it’s called black Friday. It’s not a good thing.
On a weekly basis I’m blown away by how much we let companies like Google and Facebook get away with. Two speeches I heard this week highlight my views on this.
- Aral Balkan speaking at the European Parliament. A heartfelt and true plea to push Internet technology in the right direction.
- Sacha Baron Cohen speaking at the Anti-Defamation League Summit. I didn’t know he could be such an eloquent speaker.
The Internet can be a better place than this. It must be.
