Discussions on the Future of Tech

Every year, Mr. Zuckerberg has announced a challenge for the year ahead. In his latest resolution, he promised that in 2019 he is going “to host a series of public discussions about the future of technology in society — the opportunities, the challenges, the hopes, and the anxieties.” He explained that he will talk with leaders, experts, and others in tech in a variety of formats. The discussions will be public on either Facebook, Instagram, or elsewhere. In previous years Mr. Zuckerberg built an AI for his home, run 365 miles, visited every U.S. state, read 25 books, and learned Mandarin.

In a post on his own Facebook page, Mr. Zuckerberg said he had previously hoped that Facebook’s ideas would speak for themselves. However, he said he now realized that “that doesn’t cut it anymore.” He added that he is “going to put myself out there more than I’ve been comfortable with and engage more in some of these debates about the future, the tradeoffs we face, and where we want to go.”

I keep hoping that “Grow a Soul” would be the plan one year.

Damn! I was hoping that he could figure out how to put the newsfeed in strict chronological order and eliminate sharing of hoaxes.
