Platform Policy Bingo

   
   

SOMETHING SOMETHING
BLOCKCHAIN.
THINK OF THE
UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.
THESE LAWS ARE OUTDATED,
THE INTERNET WAS VERY
DIFFERENT WHEN THEY WERE
PASSED.
AMENDING CDA 230
WILL/WILL NOT
BREAK THE INTERNET.
THE ELEPHANT IN
THE ROOM IS CHINA,
WE NEED TO TALK
ABOUT IT.
IF PLATFORMS WANT
IMMUNITY, THEY
SHOULD HAVE TO
RETAIN USERS’
REAL NAMES SO
THEY CAN BE HELD
RESPONSIBLE.
NETZDG PUTS PLATFORMS
IN THE ROLE OF COURTS,
THAT’S A HUGE CHANGE!
DEEPFAKES ARE NOT
REALLY A NEW ISSUE.
THE REAL ISSUE
IS AMPLIFICATION
AND ALGORITHMS.
THINK OF THE
CHILDREN.
WE SHOULD FOCUS
ON FAIR REMOVALS
PROCESS: PLATFORMS
NEED TO PROVIDE
CLEAR RULES, APPEALS,
AND TRANSPARENCY.
AN EXAMPLE OF HOW
PLATFORMS USE AI IS
[SOMETHING THAT ISN’T AI AT ALL].
Platform
Policy
BINGO
DON’T FORGET THAT
PLENTY OF DISINFORMATION
COMES FROM LEGACY MEDIA
COMPANIES LIKE FOX.
BIG PLATFORMS ARE
SO POWERFUL, THEY
ARE LIKE STATES,
SO THEY SHOULD
HAVE STATE-LIKE
HUMAN RIGHTS OBLIGATIONS.
BIG SOCIAL MEDIA
COMPANIES ARE THE NEW
PUBLIC SQUARE.
WE NEED TO THINK
ABOUT MODERATORS AS
A WORKFORCE, AND
PROTECT THEM.
WE ONLY HEAR ABOUT
[FAMOUS REMOVAL MISTAKE]
BECAUSE IT AFFECTED PEOPLE
WITH THE POWER TO
CALL ATTENTION TO IT.
WE NEED WAY MORE DATA
AND TRANSPARENCY
FROM PLATFORMS.
THINK ABOUT HOW
THESE PLATFORM CONTENT
REGULATION ISSUES
PLAY OUT ON
A SEMI-PRIVATE
ENCRYPTED CHANNEL
LIKE WHATSAPP.
BIG PLATFORMS ARE
SO POWERFUL, THEY
ARE LIKE STATES,
SO THEY NEED
AMBASSADORS AND A
FOREIGN POLICY.
MOST INTERNET
COMPANIES
ARE NOTHING LIKE
FACEBOOK OR YOUTUBE,
AND CAN'T HIRE
ARMIES OF MODERATORS
OR BUILD FILTERS.
PLATFORMS ALREADY
ENFORCE THE US DMCA
GLOBALLY, SO AMERICANS
SHOULDN’T COMPLAIN
WHEN OTHER
COUNTRIES WANT
THEIR LAWS
ENFORCED THAT WAY.
THINK OF THE
EFFECT ON STARTUPS.
PLATFORMS MUST UPHOLD
HUMAN RIGHTS BECAUSE OF
THE UN GUIDING PRINCIPLES/
HORIZONTAL EFFECT/STATES’
POSITIVE OBLIGATIONS.

 

How to Play: Print a card or use one on your browser. If you don’t like the one you have, click “shuffle” for a new one. Go to a conference, tune into a podcast, or otherwise listen to people talking about Internet policy. When you hear someone say one of the things on your card, mark that square. (Clicking will mark squares in your browser.) If you say it yourself, that doesn’t count. When you get a full row, column or corner-to-corner diagonal, YOU WIN!! 

The point here is not to make fun of people for saying (most of) these things. It’s not that kind of conference bingo. A few of these are silly, but many of them are good points and bear repeating. 

Credits: This awesome bingo card design came from Security Excuses Bingo. Matt Blaze and Jutta Degener generously let us borrow their code and build on their work. (If you like that one, also check out the Digital Security Bingo that Juliana Castro made for Access Now.) Some of the text was crowdsourced over the course of an epic Twitter thread. Many thanks to those who contributed!
