Land of the Giants – “Facebook Gets a Face Lift”

We are sharing the first episode of Land of the Giants: The Facebook/ Meta Disruption. Long before Mark Zuckerberg renamed Facebook Meta and made an unprecedented pivot into the metaverse, he invented a feature that turned Facebook into a social network behemoth. The News Feed, which put your friends’ status updates onto your homepage, changed how we interact online. It was a strong statement of Zuckerberg’s values: that connecting and sharing at scale would be de-facto good for the world. It was also his first public controversy.

Is there a hack for enlightenment?

Vox's Sigal Samuel talks with scholars and authors Wesley Wildman and Kate Stockly about their book, Spirit Tech: The Brave New World of Consciousness Hacking and Enlightenment Engineering. They discuss high-tech tools like brain stimulation and neurofeedback-guided meditation that purport to enrich our spiritual lives, what possible risks they may pose to our psyches, and the ethical implications of technology-induced shortcuts to transformative meditative states. They also talk about whether such spiritual experiences are authentic rather than simulated, and whether brain-based spirit tech might help humans evolve as a species.

Why we can't pay attention anymore

Sean Illing talks with the author Johann Hari about his new book Stolen Focus, which explores what's happening — and what's already happened — to our attention. They discuss how exactly Big Tech "stole" our ability to focus, what many leading scientists say about how we are psychologically and physiologically changed by the powerful new draws on our attention, and whether or not we need an "attention rebellion" to fight back against the tech giants, whose business models depend on us getting easily distracted.

Mandating vaccines shouldn’t be a restaurant worker’s job

In some parts of the US, customers in bars and restaurants are now required to show proof of vaccination against Covid-19 in order to enter the business. This can give servers, hosts, and bartenders peace of mind when they go into work, but it also puts the burden of enforcing the rules on those same employees. As Recode’s Rebecca Heilweil (@rebheilweil) explains, this can mean less tip income and an increasingly hostile work environment.  Enjoyed this episode?

Stores can use this biometric data to predict people’s shopping habits and send targeted ads their way. Privacy advocates say the technology should be kept out of the hands of private companies.

Congress vs. Covid lies

Well over a year into the pandemic, and major social media platforms are still failing to moderate Covid-19 misinformation. With cases rising in all 50 states, the delta variant rapidly spreading, and the vaccination rate slowing… things appear to be getting worse. But, a new bill proposed in the senate targeting health misinformation online could change that.

Why Netflix wants to be a gaming app

Netflix is betting on gaming to be its next big offering. The company saw lackluster growth as the world began to come out of the pandemic lockdown, so now it’s hoping a free library of video games will be enough to get users to stick around — and to bring in new ones.

Roblox: 40 million games in one

Roblox is one of the fastest growing games in the world right now. But depending on who you ask, some would say it’s more than a game. The app lets users not only play, but also join virtual birthday parties, attend real-time concerts, or just roam around a seemingly infinite digital world. Developers of Roblox say the app is more focused on creating “experiences” than “games.” The Verge’s Jay Peters (@jaypeters) joins Rani Molla to help explain what that means.

Social media’s racial bias problem

How social media threatens humanity

Social media has, in an incredibly short period of time, drastically restructured the way we communicate. But there's a problem: We know very little about its dangers.

Big Tech is scared of Lina Khan

For a few years now, Congress and regulatory agencies have been issuing warnings for Big Tech. And in the past week, those threats got more real. On June 11, Congress introduced five antitrust bills that target Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google, and could potentially break up their core businesses. A few days later, the White House appointed Lina Khan, a big enemy for Big Tech, as a commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission, the agency that enforces antitrust laws.

The former president was kicked off social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube in the wake of the Capitol riots, and it’s not clear when — or if — they’re going to let him back on. There’s been buzz about Trump starting his own platform, but he’s had a hard time getting it off the ground thus far: The blog he launched in May folded in less than a month. In a way, Trump canceled himself. Shirin Ghaffary, a senior reporter at Recode, discusses life on the internet without the man who used to be one of its most ferocious voices Learn More:  Recode’s Sara Morrison wrote about Trump shutting down his blog And Recode’s Rebecca Heilweil wrote about Facebook’s recent decision on Trump –– Tell Me More is hosted by Emily Stewart and produced by Sofi LaLonde.

Why the internet is a luxury

Think about everything you did yesterday. Now imagine how the day would have gone if you didn’t have the internet. Access to the internet isn’t as universal as you might think. Millions of Americans don’t have access to broadband, because of either where they live or what they can afford. But there’s another big, more insidious factor: politics. Vox senior reporter Emily Stewart (@emilystewartm) is here to discuss. References:  Rani wrote about low-income Americans’ access to broadband. And Emily wrote about what it would take to get widespread internet access across the country. –– Enjoyed this episode?

Congress’s plans to break up Big Tech

Last week, House Democrats on the Antitrust Subcommittee announced legislation aimed to check the power of Big Tech: namely Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google.

Recode’s Shirin Ghaffary, who’s been following antitrust reform explains which bill seems most promising.

I got my (digital) driver's license last week

We’ve all done it, we’ve all left the house without our wallet. And that used to be a big problem.

The ugly truth about credit card points

If you’re like most Americans, you probably have a credit card that offers rewards such as points, cash back, or miles. Credit card rewards programs are extremely popular: Nearly seven in 10 Americans use at least one rewards-earning card. Many people even have multiple cards. But what you might not know is how those rewards are paid for. No, it’s not the credit card companies—it’s the person in line behind you at the corner store who used cash to pay for their items.

Elon Musk is a stonckfluencer

Back in 2018, Elon Musk tweeted about taking Tesla private. The SEC fined him and his company $40 million, he lost his Tesla chairmanship, and he was ordered to have his tweets reviewed by company lawyers. Three years later, his tweets are still influential. Whether about Tesla’s solar roof manufacturing plans or his opinion that Tesla’s stock is “too high,” his tweets continue to push the market up and down. Now, Musk has taken to tweeting about cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and dogecoin, sending those prices spiraling. Recode’s Rani Molla (@ranimolla) explains.

How Instacart’s harsh ratings system hurts grocery deliverers

From the Recode Daily archives (March 25 2021): Instacart is a gig economy app, similar to Uber or Airbnb, but for grocery deliveries. It has two sets of users: the people who order groceries, and the people who shop for them, deliver them and hope for a five-star rating in return.  Recode’s Peter Kafka talks with Ehud Sopher, a New York filmmaker who works full-time for Instacart and earns a commission for every completed order. Sopher recently wrote a first-person essay for Vox.com about a four-star rating he received, which in the world of Instacart shoppers, meant that he was effectively facing a massive pay cut. He explains why customers deserve more transparency from Instacart about the financial repercussions of how they rate shoppers and drivers.  References: You can read Sopher's story on Vox.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The housing boom, but for renters

America’s high-flying housing market might mean you’ll be renting forever — or, at least, for quite some time. Housing prices have soared during the pandemic as people have rushed to buy homes to escape cities and secure space for themselves and their families. Big companies have scooped up houses as well, sometimes outcompeting would-be homebuyers. As a result, more people may be pushed toward rentals because they can’t find or afford houses to buy. Recode’s Rani Molla explains whether the housing boom is turning America into a nation of renters.

When a presidency ends, the National Archives and Records Administration's work begins. They play a key role in transferring millions of records and artifacts from the White House.

Instacart is a gig economy app, similar to Uber or Airbnb, but for grocery deliveries.

Sopher recently wrote a first-person essay for Vox.com about a four-star rating he received, which in the world of Instacart shoppers, meant that he was effectively facing a massive pay cut.
