“Big Tech is unable to fix its big content problem alone. A solution will require a coordinated effort across many partners to make this a global priority. Similar to climate change, the future of our collective wellbeing is at stake… With most public discourse happening on only a handful of platforms, each run by a now middle-aged techie man, the failure of judgment, abuse of power, and bias toward their own interests and values at the expense of society are not just likely, but certain. A small group of digital kings make unilateral decisions about which speech is allowed, who can speak, and how rules are enforced, with little transparency and no accountability.” By Tom Siegel
