Surely we can do better knowledge transfer than we have in other histories. This talk is a lovely part of that.

She just wanna be the next President, come hell or high water, “Rohingyas” or “Bingalas”, Chinese pipelines and dams or copper and jade mines, …
I am just exercising my “civil liberties” here on “Civic Internet Media (sic)” as someone born in Rangoon, Burma before “Ike” (General Eisenhower) became President of the USA LOL

While acknowledging this is an increasingly complicated issue, I fully share your position on hate speech. In response to a question on hate speech regulation, in Yangoon you referred to an expert in this area, stating that you align yourself with his/her position. As I missed the name, I was wondering if you could let me know who that person is.
Thank you!

About the media scene being “probably too crowded”, are there signs of benefits too? Like the emergence/exchange of best practices? A recognition of talent?
