John Carreyrou, “Bad Blood” writer
“I think the Theranos story is a cautionary tale about how not to go about it, and how not to model yourself too much after the computer industry. I’d like to think this was an outlier, that this was a lot of bad things that were extreme that aren’t going to be common going forward in Silicon Valley … At the same time they were committing fraud, they also had convinced themselves that their malfunctioning prototype was the greatest thing that humanity had ever worked on.”

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO
“I’m Jewish, and there’s a collection of people that deny that the Holocaust took place. I in finding that deeply offensive. But at the finish of the day, I don’t consider that our platform must take that down as a result of I feel there are issues that other folks get flawed. I don’t suppose that they’re deliberately getting it flawed, however I feel it’s onerous to impugn intent and to grasp the intent … I simply don’t suppose that it’s the proper factor to mention, ‘We’re going to take anyone off the platform in the event that they get issues flawed, even more than one occasions.’”

Elon Musk, Tesla and SpaceX CEO
“There are good journalists and there are bad ones, and unfortunately the feedback loop for good versus bad is inverted, so the more salacious that an article is, the more salacious the headline is, the more clicks it’s gonna get. Then somebody is not a journalist, they are an ad salesman. … Count how many negative articles there are and how many I respond to. One percent, maybe. But the common rebuttal of journalists is, ‘Oh. My article’s fine. He’s just thin-skinned.’ No, your article is false and you don’t want to admit it.”

Jay Rosen, NYU professor; Oliver Darcy, CNN reporter; and Charlie Warzel, BuzzFeed reporter
Rosen: “The whole premise of an interview of a sitting president is that you can find out about their thinking. You can illuminate their policy choices. You can dig a little deeper into what they plan to do. And that assumes that the president has policy ideas and has a strategy … With Trump, none of that applies, because in an interview situation, he’s just saying what, at the moment, makes him feel like the best, the biggest, the greatest, the brightest, the richest, the most potent.”

Emily Steel, New York Times reporter
“We had created this foundation of evidence and really hardcore reporting that allowed women to stand on top of that and tell their stories, and not only tell their stories, but people believed them. In previous stories, a lot of the people being accused were very powerful, prominent men. But with the Harvey Weinstein story, he was a powerful, prominent man, but a lot of his accusers were famous, famous, famous, famous women.”

Jason Hirschhorn, Redef
On Netflix: “This is the greatest land grab in the history of media ever. It happened because those guys are brilliant and they ultimately figured out and made great shows, and they did like any other media business, which is they started out curating other people’s stuff. But really, they also succeeded because of the laziness and this silly laughter out of the people that were licensing stuff from them.”

Jaron Lanier, “Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now” writer
“If you are actually in a position to quit [social media] and you don’t, you’re making yourself part of the problem. You’re not doing anything to free those who are more trapped. You’re only enslaving them more by entrenching the system. As an affluent or valuable person to the system, you’re the one that the whole system is being funded by.”
