Give it to me: I’ll check it out. I would say that private messaging raises a different set of issues. There are certain, again, content-agnostic solutions that can solve messaging applications, for example, limiting forwarding is a big deal. And that’s what Facebook did in India, because the chain WhatsApp messages were a source of dangerous viral content that was inciting people to violence. And the beauty of things like this is that it doesn’t require you to look inside the garbage and human messages around you, or weaken end-to-end encrypted apps.
Give it to me: It’s worth remembering, although it has a limit … It would be bizarre for us to be confused and say that the post office has to do something that sends letters with incorrect information, or that phone companies really need to call each other and Making fun of people for saying things that are not true. So I think we need to keep in mind that when people are communicating with each other, at a certain point in time, there is a limit to how much communication architecture providers can do, or what the police expect. Each other.
MC: Yes. And pushing too hard brings up very complex issues of encryption and weak encryption, or compromising with encryption, which we all understand very badly.
Give it to me: OK. Or pressuring people to improve their OPSEC. And it is, oh, shit, Facebook is cracking on us. I think I will get the signal after all. That’s good, damn it. Now we can’t, now we’re really lost. We can’t see what they are doing.
MC: Lauren, what is your recommendation.
LG: I have two recommendations this week. In honor of Gilad, who is always looking for something fun and easy.
Give it to me: I always behave very well when I’m here.
LG: I’m swiping to the right, which is to say Date.
MC: Oh, like food.
LG: Like food, dates.
MC: To eat.
LG: They are really good to eat. Yes, I was on the back of a Medzul date, they are delicious, they have high potassium and fiber, and low glycemic index. And I was just, I love them. I’m snacking on them all the time now.
MC: What do you do with the holes?
LG: I put them in compost.
Give it to me: Which app are you using for Medjul date?
LG: This is a super, super secret date app.
Give it to me: Invite only.
LG: Yes. Yes. This is an invitation only, but if you have access to dates, I highly recommend them.
MC: I’m glad to hear you’re back in the scene.
Give it to me: Yes. Come back to the date view.
LG: Return to date view. My other recommendation is Lump Podcasts, New York Times Suppression Kara Swiss’s podcast. And I’m not just saying it because he’s my friend and landlord, I’m saying it because I’ve heard a few episodes recently that are particularly good. He interviewed Monica Lewinsky last week, and they talked a lot about the collective internal confusion of society surrounding Bill Clinton’s impeachment. And Monica is now working on a new project, including a Hulu series about impeachment. And Beanie Feldstein, I think how you said her name, Monica is acting. And Monica has a hand in telling the story. And this is a really raw and brutally honest interview that he does with Kara Swisser. And I think it’s really worth listening to.
