The democratisation of the internet and web content is only as far reaching as content reviewers huddled around striking things out based on company guidelines.

Since online media is massively influential it begs the question of how do we regulate/vet content that is massively distributed in a more inclusive way. Do we really want a handful of persons with similar subjective biases dictating what is appropriate content for a much more diverse populous? How do you factor in cultural norms? When and who decides to push the envelope of those cultural norms to drive tolerance and basic human dignity?

So many deep ended questions! Implications are endless and ever shaping our world.

A lot of teachers think that kids have time-management problems, when they procrastinate. And they don’t have a time-management problem. ... What they have is an emotion-management problem. They have to learn that you don’t feel good all the time, and you’ve got to get on with it.”

2/5
Too much time spent on narrative and less on analysis and conclusion. Examples pronounced but not developed.

Takeaway: In a microcosm so dependent on trust, there's been a failure to uphold integrity in the face of welcomed failure and even more so increasing cases of fraud, which is almost encouraged by the aggressive nature of VC and startup environments.

Some founders grow into talented CEOs. Most don’t. That’s an inevitable by-product of Silicon Valley culture, where everybody fetishizes engineers, designers, and inventors while managers get little respect.
