Week in Review: The webs free speech conundrum

Hey everyone. Thank you for welcoming me into you inbox yet again.
Last week, I talked about the eternal dumbness of the smart home and how Google had a big chance to lay out their vision this past week. Guess what? They did not, instead we got a new more expensive Google Wifi that falls under the Nest brand as well as a Google Mini that can be wall-mounted

The big story


Zuckerberg had an interesting week, delivering a very rehearsed keynote that was neither in front of Congress or an audience of developers at F8. He spoke at Georgetown on the topic of free speech and Facebooks brand of capitalism.
It was an odd speech, but it was an opportunity for him to speak at length about what he saw as Facebooks mission in terms of free speech


These two simple ideas voice and inclusion go hand in hand. Weve seen this throughout history, even if it doesnt feel that way today. More people being able to share their perspectives has always been necessary to build a more inclusive society. And our mutual commitment to each other that we hold each others right to express our views and be heard above our own desire to always get the outcomes we want is how we make progress together.
But this view is increasingly being challenged. Some people believe giving more people a voice is driving division rather than bringing us together. More people across the spectrum believe that achieving the political outcomes they think matter is more important than every person having a voice. I think thats dangerous. Today I want to talk about why, and some important choices we face around free expression.
