Hey good morning everyone. First off wanna welcome all the new people who have just joined after hearing about Locals on Judge Jeanine last night. (Her community will be up shortly.)
What we are building here with Locals are digital homes instead of giant platforms. If you’re a creator with us, it’s your content, your data and your rules. By having a small minimum paywall we have eliminated almost all bad behavior and we leave it up the creators to monitor their own communities, much like you decide who comes in your own home. As I always say I think we’ve solved 95% of the problems for 95% of the people.
Parler getting kicked off Amazon servers last night was a massive escalation in the war on free speech and our team is working hard to make sure we are fully protected while creating a great product. As if I didn’t have enough on my plate I guess I’m a tech thought leader now, too. Lord help me!
And if you are one of the new folks here, yes you’ll get politics, but also...
Went to a friend’s birthday party at her unbelievable house last night. Fantastic music, food and atmosphere. @davidjanet even got me to dance. Of course the police showed up and apologized for even having to be there. After a little chaos the party continued. Life finds a way! (Yes, there were fire-wielding belly dancers!)
How’s your weekend going?
