Confused about all the hubbub around the TikTok deal? ' newsletter is incredibly useful -- even the free one -- and I feel like I get it now.

How about 'if user hides video, do not show that exact video to them again'? That seems like it would be quite easy to build.

I am very pro tax and pro regulation. I have written at great length advocating both.

You cannot ‘prove’ mathematically in excel the behaviour of billions of people. That should be a very obvious fallacy.

It would be interesting to draw a line through fake news, screen time, filter bubbles, and radicalisation on the basis of whether there’s any good evidence to support the idea they’re real and significant.

In 1914, a rumour swept the UK that Russian troops had arrived to help on the western front. The clinching detail - you knew they were Russians because they had snow on their boots (In August, after shipping from Russia to Britain.)

23 September 1969. The Daily Mirror reported a rumour was sweeping America suggesting Paul McCartney had been dead since 1966 and had been secretly replaced as a member of The Beatles by a look a like imposter.

Good lord! The MAGA rally that started in a parking lot of a mall in the suburbs and ended with a caravan to Portland that resulted in death appears to have been a Russian op. It was organized by Alek Kyzik who is still on Facebook - not his real name!

Increasing trend: people talking about policy and rules for 'data'. 'You own your data', 'data should be portable', 'there should be a EU market/rules/rules for data'. The problem with this: there is no such fucking thing as 'data' 1/

OK, this is madness. FB didn’t say it would pull out of Europe. It said that it didn’t know how it could offer its FB & Insta services in Europe if it couldn’t continue moving data from EU to US. And that, to be clear, is very much on the table, & applies to others like Google
