Read_691 – A Native Protocol for Social Media [Jack Dorsey]

The problem today is that we have companies who own both the protocol and discovery of content. Which ultimately puts one person in charge of what’s available and seen, or not. This is by definition a single point of failure, no matter how great the person, and over time will fracture the public conversation, and may lead to more control by governments and corporations around the world.” – Jack Dorsey

Jack Dorsey makes the case for a native social media protocol in this short, but important piece reflecting on the failures of Twitter, and the potential hope for fixing its problems indefinitely into the future. One of the most important issues today, sparking a long Guy’s Take in this episode on what I think lies ahead of us, and what I hope I can contribute to the cause in this coming year. This is something that we can’t sit on and wait to solve, let’s do it now.

“It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished. But if innocence itself is brought to the bar and condemned, perhaps to die, then the citizen will say, “whether I do good or whether I do evil is immaterial, for innocence itself is no protection,” and if such an idea as that were to take hold in the mind of the citizen that would be the end of security whatsoever.”
