Regulate Tech #10: Open and Closed

March 20, 2021

In this episode we examine the often somewhat fuzzy distinction between open and closed systems and platforms, and discuss if there are better ways to think about this. We also suggest that maybe we should pay more attention to the distinction between centralized and de-centralized solutions.

Regulate Tech #6: Splinternets

February 20, 2021

In this week's episode we discuss the evolution away from a global Internet into several smaller splinternets. How large are they likely to be? What does this mean for the large platforms? Was there ever a global Internet to begin with? And will technology ultimately resist the re-territorialization we are seeing today with digital sovereignty and data localization? 

Regulate Tech #5: Truth, lies and doubt

Regulate Tech #5: Truth, lies and doubt

February 13, 2021

Should platforms become the arbiters of truth? Should we as a society require that they uphold a shared baseline of facts and ensure that doubting historical and scientific truths is much harder than it is today? What about lying - should that really be allowed online? In this episode the subject is truth and we discuss if the long arc of platform history bends towards institutional knowledge.
