Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announces public discussion series on tech

Mark Zuckerberg announced on Tuesday that he will host a series of public discussions about the future of technology in society, which the Facebook CEO admitted will require him to “put myself out there more than I’ve been comfortable with.”

“Every few weeks I’ll talk with leaders, experts, and people in our community from different fields and I’ll try different formats to keep it interesting,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post on his personal Facebook page. “These will all be public, either on my Facebook or Instagram pages or on other media.”

The announcement comes in the form of Zuckerberg’s annual personal challenge, which in previous years has included everything from killing the meat he ate to wearing a tie to work.

It also points to growing skepticism from politicians, the general public and even many technologists over the possible harms of Facebook and other tech that has quickly taken hold in the lives of millions of people.

Among the critiques leveled at technology companies is the notion that some of its innovations have been created without properly anticipating negative impacts or manipulation by bad actors, a line or argument that Zuckerberg alluded to.

“’I’m an engineer, and I used to just build out my ideas and hope they’d mostly speak for themselves,” Zuckerberg said. “But given the importance of what we do, that doesn’t cut it anymore.”

Zuckerberg said that although he had been hesitant to speak publicly on controversial topics, he was ready to “engage more in some of these debates about the future, the tradeoffs we face, and where we want to go.”

The new challenge follows on the one he set in 2018, which he said at the end of the year has ended up being “more than a one-year challenge.”

“We’re a very different company today than we were in 2016, or even a year ago. We’ve fundamentally altered our DNA to focus more on preventing harm in all our services, and we’ve systematically shifted a large portion of our company to work on preventing harm,” he wrote.

Zuckerberg’s challenges didn’t use to be so heavy. In fact, some of them were fun.

In 2009, Facebook had 150 million users and the most important challenge facing Zuckerberg was trading in his T-shirt for a tie when he went to work. Zuckerberg vowed 2010 would be a year of progress with his Mandarin skills and it appears to have paid off. Zuckerberg has charmed crowds in China with his speaking skills, even if they’ve been criticized as “clumsy.”

In 2011, Zuckerberg killed a chicken, pig and a goat as part of his personal challenge, which was to only eat meat that he slaughtered. The animals were then sent to a butcher, who would send the meat back to Zuckerberg for his home cooking adventures, which made use of every part of the animal. Zuckerberg ate chicken livers and made stock from chicken feet, according to Fortune.

The year Facebook went public, 2012, Zuckerberg vowed to stick to his roots and code every day.

In 2013, Zuckerberg’s goal was to meet someone new — who doesn’t work at Facebook — every day and have a conversation with them. The next year, he focused on writing one “thank you” note every day, which Zuckerberg said would be tough because he’s “a really critical person.”

“I always kind of see how I want things to be better, and I’m generally not happy with how things are, or the level of service that we’re providing for people, or the quality of the teams that we built. But if you look at this objectively, we’re doing so well on so many of these things. I think it’s important to have gratitude for that,” he told Businessweek.

Winter storm blasts Europe; 13 dead amid heavy snow, gusts

BERLIN — Hundreds of people were snowed-in in Alpine regions and warned of a high risk of avalanches, parts of Scandinavia were left without electricity, and high winds caused flight delays and cancellations in the Netherlands as deadly winter weather continued to blast Europe on Tuesday.

Several people have already been killed in weather-related incidents over the last week, and in Norway attempts to find the bodies of four skiers were again put on hold due to poor visibility and heavy snowfall. A 29-year Swedish woman and three Finns, aged 29, 32 and 36, were presumed dead after a 990-foot-wide avalanche hit the Tamok valley, near the northern city of Tromsoe, last week.

In Austria, hundreds of residents were stuck in their homes due to blocked roads, and some regions experienced power outages after snow-laden trees took down power lines.

Schools in some Austrian regions remained closed for a second day and homeowners were advised to remove snow from their roofs after several buildings collapsed. A 78-year-old man was severely injured when he fell of the roof of his home in Turrach while shoveling snow, Austrian public broadcaster ORF reported.

On Monday night, 11 German hikers had to be rescued by mountaineers from a cabin near Salzburg, after having been snowed in without electricity and little food since Friday. Several people were killed by avalanches in recent days and authorities warned continuing snowfall is increasing the already high risk of more avalanches.

In southern and eastern Germany, people were also bracing for further snowfall, while in the northern coastal city of Hamburg residents were preparing for a storm flood caused by a winter gale, the German news agency dpa reported.

In neighboring Netherlands, Amsterdam’s busy Schiphol Airport warned of delays and cancellations. Dutch carrier KLM canceled 159 flights to and from European destinations.

In northwestern Dutch coastal regions expected to be hardest hit by strong winds and wild seas, local water authorities began checking dikes to make sure they were not damaged.

The Noorderzijlvest water authority said it was monitoring dikes because of debris floating in the sea after nearly 300 containers tumbled off a cargo ship in a storm last week. Many of the containers are still at sea and some have broken open, spilling their contents.

“A fridge or container that is rammed against a dike can cause damage,” the authority said on its website.

Heavy snowfall and strong winds were reported Tuesday over central Scandinavia, hampering efforts to restore electricity after a hefty storm swept through northern Europe on Jan. 2.

Swedish media reported several fender-benders and stranded vehicles along roads but nothing unusual for the season in this part of Europe.

Meanwhile, in southeastern Europe, schools in the Greek capital and many surrounding areas remained shut due to weather conditions after snowfall blanketed Athens, with temperatures in some parts of the country plunging well below freezing.

Courts in Athens were also to remain shut Tuesday, with only fast-track prosecutions being heard, the Justice Ministry said. Some rural roads, particularly those leading up to the mountains near the capital, were shut overnight and in the early morning.

Greece has been experiencing a cold snap for the past few days, with heavy snowfall, particularly in the north of the country and in mountainous areas. Temperatures have reached minus 20 degrees Celsius (minus 5 degrees Fahrenheit) in parts of northern Greece, while many islands have also experienced snowfall.
