Selling Free Speech (w/ Eugen Rochko of Mastodon)
Play • 47 min

Since the early 2000s, social media and social networking has played a key role in how internet users across the world interact with one another. But in more recent years, major privacy concerns and the approaches to moderating content on these platforms has become an on-going debate. Some argue for so-called “free speech absolutism”, regardless of the consequences, while many others see the inherent dangers of letting these systems run unchecked… meanwhile, behind the scenes, big money and influence can create interesting dynamics when it comes to who is running these platforms.

To discuss where things might be headed, we’re joined by Eugen Rochko, creator and CEO of Mastodon - an open source, federated social media platform based on open web protocols.
