Biden: FTC mit Lina Khan

Biden to nominate tech antitrust pioneer Lina Khan for FTC commissioner – Khan brought Big Tech scrutiny mainstream – President Joe Biden has announced his intent to nominate Lina Khan, a legal scholar and leading voice in the growing tech antitrust movement, to serve as a commissioner at the Federal Trade Commission. – The pick signals that the Biden administration is preparing to take on some of the tech industry’s most powerful and influential companies. In 2017, Khan authored an article for the Yale Law Journal titled ‚Amazon’s Antitrust Paradox,‘ which exploded in popularity in progressive economic policy circles. Khan has also served as an aide to the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on antitrust throughout its yearslong investigation into anticompetitive behavior in the tech industry.“

Kauft Microsoft Discord?

Discord exploring sale that could be worth more than $10 billion – Discord is going through a sales process now that could result in a purchase of the communications and chat platform for much more than $10 billion, GamesBeat has learned. – Two sources familiar with the matter said that Discord is exploring its options for a sale in the wake of interest from multiple parties that want to buy the company. And one source said the company has signed an exclusive acquisition discussion with one party, meaning it is in final negotiations about a sale. This news comes after Discord raised $140 million in December at a $7 billion valuation (based on data found by Prime Unicorn Index).“


Google Suche: weniger Klicks

„In 2020, Two Thirds of Google Searches Ended Without a Click – In August of 2019, I published research from now-defunct clickstream data provider, Jumpshot, showing that 50.33% of all Google searches ended without a click to any web property in the results. Today, thanks to new data from SimilarWeb, I’ve got a substantive update to that analysis. – From January to December, 2020, 64.82% of searches on Google (desktop and mobile combined) ended in the search results without clicking to another web property. That number is likely undercounting some mobile and nearly all voice searches, and thus it’s probable that more than 2/3rds of all Google searches are what I’ve been calling ‚zero-click searches.'“


YouTube: Auto-Produkt-Links

YouTube experiment will auto-detect products in videos and provide related content links – As part of one of YouTube’s latest experiments, the video-sharing platform looks to expand beyond the ‚Products in this Video‘ feature that auto-detects specific items and will be able to generate related video links to anything featured. – We saw an early version of this feature begin testing with a very small subset of YouTube users midway through 2020, but it looks as though it is being expanded further for those viewing content in the US.“


$2.915.835,47 für Tweet Nr. 1

Jack Dorsey’s first tweet sold as an NFT for an oddly specific $2,915,835.47 – The winning bidder for the Twitter CEO’s first tweet was Sina Estavi – After it spent just over two weeks on the market, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has sold his first tweet as an NFT for the weirdly specific figure of $2,915,835.47. The winning bidder was Sina Estavi, who had held the high bid since offering $2.5 million on March 6th. He upped his bid to this number at the last moment (and if anyone can tell us what that figure represents, we’d love to hear your theories). … Dorsey said previously he would convert the winning bid into bitcoin and donate it to GiveDirectly for its Africa Response, and he tweeted his receipt Monday afternoon. GiveDirectly is a charitable organization which gives money directly to people living in poverty.“
