Posted in: Governments around the world are asking Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Google to deal with issues, such as what to do about people who use their platforms to meddle in elections or spread lies, paranoia, bigotry and hate speech? Do you think it is possible for them to “tame the monsters they have created?” See in context

Of course they can control it. Japan Today is the perfect example.

JT has a moderator and they do a pretty good job of moderating. In the early days of the Internet, almost all websites that allowed people to openly comment and publish, also had moderators. Even BEFORE the Internet, when there were only bulletin boards (remember those?) there were moderators.

That today's large "social media" companies do not, is not a failure of technology, it is a failure of will, management and greed.

Posted in: What do you think of rakugo storytelling? Can it be successfully translated into English, for example, and be funny? See in context

Hiroshi, yes I've seen Katsura Sunshine on TV many time and really like his style.

The classic rakugo stories that transcend most cultures are ones like the old man fishing in the puddle.

Posted in: If you work in an office, do you prefer an open office or would you rather have a cubicle? See in context

At the very least, a cubicle. With high walls. It is impossible to hold a conversation in an open office.
