Why am I posting a picture of Macron? Because I don’t want anyone to forget this story from last year.
“The call was adopted by U.S. tech companies that also included Amazon, Microsoft and YouTube, along with France’s Qwant and DailyMotion, and the Wikimedia Foundation. Countries backing France and New Zealand were Britain, Canada, Ireland, Jordan, Norway, Senegal, Indonesia and the European Union’s executive body. Several other countries not present at the meeting added their endorsement.
The meeting in Paris comes at a pivotal moment for tech companies, which critics accuse of being too powerful and resistant to regulation. Some have called for giants like Facebook to be broken up. Europe is leading a global push for more regulation of how the companies handle user data and copyrighted material. The tech companies, meanwhile, are offering their own ideas in a bid to shape the policy response.”
DON’T THINK THAT BILL GATES IS GOING TO UPSTAGE MACRON.
AND DON’T THINK THAT BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT HEARD HIS NAME LATELY; THAT MACRON ISN’T GOING TO TAKE CHARGE OF THIS CRISIS. I EXPECT A GLOBAL MEETING IN FRANCE SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED.
