Tech on the Rocks

Aug 10, 2020

On Episode 7 of Tech on the Rocks, Gigi chats with two guests working on the front lines of the content moderation and Section 230 debate. Dr. Jessica Ashooh, the Director of Policy for Reddit and Sherwin Siy, the Senior Public Policy Manager at the Wikimedia Foundation, both discuss their companies’ content moderation policies and how current legislation will affect their platforms. Gigi questions whether the current efforts by some in Congress and the Trump administration to tinker with Section 230 protections would hurt smaller platforms like Reddit and Wikipedia. Does Section 230 need to be modernized? Does “one size fit all” when it comes to these crucial protections? Tune in for perspectives on these questions and much more on this episode of Tech on the Rocks!
