I have enjoyed the content but am unsubscribing because the sound quality is so annoying. The volume level is uneven and Thompson sounds like he’s recording from his bathroom. I don’t understand why a premier tech media company can’t do better than this.

What Becomes of WeChat—Most Interesting Thing in Tech

Podcast cover
Read more
We’re just beginning to understand the scope and consequences of Trump’s executive order banning WeChat. We still don’t know exactly how far it will extend, but right now we are very much headed to a world with a splinternet---where, in some countries, you can use Chinese tech to access Chinese apps, and in other countries you use Western tech and Western apps. This is not an outcome I’ve wanted, but here we are.

Read more
The big anti-trust hearings were today! A lot happened. But my ultimate conclusions:
1) These companies are too big. They distort markets and are predatory in different ways.
2) The US government, as currently comprised, would totally make a hash of it if it tried to break them up.
