Learning a little every day

Craig Newmark, nerd en oprichter van Craigslist, over social media:

“Outrage is profitable. Most online outrage is faked for profit”

Maar hij blijft ervan overtuigd dat het internet toch een positieve ontwikkeling is:

“It allows people of goodwill to get together and work together for common good. Bad actors are much louder, they make for more sensational news and we’re seeing a period of that now. The US, in a way, is lucky. Bad actors interfering with our elections may have had some success but their success is not complete and it means that people of goodwill are fighting back vigorously.”
