Show notes:

Social media isn’t good or bad. It reacts to good and bad things. Social rightly tore Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey apart, but gave Alyssa Milano and many others a voice.

Social platforms make invisible things visible. Social platforms form the news cycle. Social forces us to pay attention! And figure out what is really true.

Burger King takes on bullying in a new PSA.

Give The Talk was our very own PSA. Parents: talk to your kids about sex ed before the porn industry does.

Q3 earnings: Alphabet, Amazon crush it. Twitter might get there.

Brick and mortar isn’t dead, it’s just evolving.

Autonomous driving is coming, and it’s real.

Plus, Amazon, you just keep innovating with Cloud Cam and Key. And man you’ve got a billion dollar ad business now. Amazon captured more than half of online retail growth.
