SHOW NOTES:

Nicki and i finally got around to watching the Netflix documentary "The Social Dilemma." We knew a fair amount of what was covered, we knew that at some point the developers of these platforms discovered that they made more money, garnered more shares and interaction by feeding us things that enrage or threaten us. You can know all that stuff but as I mention in the Salty Talk itself, what this reminded me of was the scientists after the Manhattan Project who knew that what they'd created represented an existential threat. A technology that could not just destroy civilization but humanity itself. I got that same sense here. Listen in as we discuss our thoughts about it, and what we're currently doing with our own habits and social media.
