Hello kind person on my email list -
Thank you for signing up to get updates from me. I am writing to let you know that the next stage of my adventures has begun.
My first piece as a New York Times Contributing Opinion Writer has just been published: “It’s Time to Tear up Big Tech’s Get-Out-of-Jail-Free Card.” In it, I tell the tale of the discriminatory ads that I was able to buy on Facebook in 2016 and how even now years later, Facebook still hasn’t fully fixed its algorithms that enable discriminatory ads. Today the Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case Gonzalez v. Google that may determine whether tech companies can continue to avoid legal liability for their algorithms.
In addition to writing for the Times, I also have just signed up to join Columbia Journalism School’s Brown Institute as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence. I’ll be using my time there to cook up some cool new projects that I hope to be able to share with you soon.
