Link: Making the Internet Work for Everyone Using Section 230

For New America’s Thread online magazine, I wrote a piece on the importance of Section 230 for public interest internet organizations, like Wikipedia or the Internet Archive. The piece underscores that while the statute is one that undoubtedly has downsides, needlessly reforming or repealing Section 230 can lead to more bad than good.

For the OTI Blog, along with Prem Trivedi, I wrote about the Supreme Court’s ruling on two important cases related to Section 230, and on what lies ahead, as well as what OTI sees as important work in the future

Press: BusinessInsider – As Facebook prepares to outsource tough content decisions to its new ‘Supreme Court,’ experts warn it still operates within a dictatorship and can’t legislate a better government

Press: The Hill – “Republicans, DOJ propose scaling back social media liability protections”

I was quoted in this article in The Hill, talking about the dual proposals from Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) and from the Department of Justice, on content moderation. As you can probably tell, I (along with anybody that’s spent more than 2 hours in this area of tech policy) am not a fan of either.

Link: WSJ Op-Ed on “Content Moderation”

I co-authored, alongside Danielle Tomson, Director of the Personal Democracy Forum, an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, proposing the inclusion of the multistakeholder ethos of transparency, cooperation and user input, into the very complex issue of content moderation, as part of the conversation over the Alex Jones banning.
