As many of you may know (but some may not!) in addition to writing Infinite Scroll I also host the Center for New Liberalism’s podcast. Over the past month, I’ve recorded a number of podcasts relevant to what we talk about here, and about the world of technology and social media. If you’re a podcast person, check them out!
I listened to the Hollywood on Strike episode yesterday during work, I thought it was a good breakdown of the situation. I think Matt Belloni has done a great job exploring this in-depth over on The Town podcast, as well.
If we're picking sides, I'm certainly more on the union side of things, but I thought you did a good job holding Maurer's feet to the fire on the question re: people's feelings on Big Tech, because the idea that "everyone hates Big Tech, this is known" is peak Twitter-brain. I thought his response was pretty dodgy ("well, we can agree that some people hate Big Tech"), but at least you pushed him on it.
