Interesting juxtaposition of links provided on the same page by Techmeme.com (January 9, 2019, 11:15 AM) 


1 | Mark Zuckerberg says his challenge for 2019 is to host a series of public discussions about the future of technology in society

“Every year I take on a personal challenge to learn something new.”

2 | Over a dozen ex-Facebook employees detail how the company’s leaders and stacked ranking performance reviews foster a culture where any dissent is discouraged

More than a dozen former Facebook employees detailed how the company’s leadership and its performance review system has created a culture where any dissent is discouraged.

Snap!

When something doesn’t make sense, there’s a reason. Unless there isn’t.

Yesterday, Kylie Jenner tweeted that she hasn’t used Snapchap lately and, poof, the market-cap of Snap drops by $1.3 billion. (Today it’s market cap is around $20 billion.)

While that may not be as dramatic a swing as you’d witness during a typical hour of, say, Bitcoin, it makes me recall when MySapce was worth $12 billion.

Just saying.
