Podcast: Why it's a shame for Twitter to sell out now
by Dave Winer Tuesday, October 4, 2016

I'm nursing a cold. Feeling fine, but my voice is a bit scratchy.

Last night I read a piece by Nick Bilton about Twitter's sell-off, which apparently, according to Bilton, is underway now.

That got me tweeting, and then thinking, why it's such a shame to have it happen at this point in Twitter's life, when it couldn't be more central to the way news happens and is reported, and when their technology can play such a big role in the evolution of the net.

I found it hard to write a post about this, so instead I did a 14-minute ramble. Maybe it'll come together more concisely, but I wanted to get this out there now.
