In her latest book, “Silicon Values: Silicon Values: The Future of Free Speech Under Surveillance Capitalism,” she examines the history of free speech, moderation, censorship and policy across platforms from Facebook to YouTube and in countries around the world. She joins the show to discuss the themes from her book, plus what platforms got right about the pandemic, why global companies need a more global perspective on expression, and what other platforms can learn from Reddit.
