It’s been hard to keep up with Facebook’s public reckoning, as new information drops each day. Of course, the CanCon podcast has been covering the story since the beginning, so it seems like there’s only one real question left for us to ask after Zuckerberg’s week in Washington: now that the general populace understands the extent to which it’s the product and not the consumer, will anything change?
For our second segment, the CanCon podcast abandons live tweeting Congress testimony in favour of a history lesson. Apple looks poised to make a major chipset change to its line of Macs, with a significant impact on how we all use its software. What kind of impact? Thankfully, CanCon has just the right amount of old tech heads needed to explain how Apple’s past will inform its future.
Join us as the CanCon crew – Erin Bury, managing director of Eighty-Eight; Rob Kenedi, general manager of TWG New York; and Douglas Soltys, BetaKit editor-in-chief – shares their personal social media hype-concern ratings.
