Mark Zuckerberg quotes

Oct 03 2017 - Facebook

After the election, I made a comment that I thought the idea misinformation on Facebook changed the outcome of the election was a crazy idea. Calling that crazy was dismissive and I regret it. This is too important an issue to be dismissive.feedback

Oct 02 2017 - Facebook

It, and frankly, I don't think our society should want us to.feedback

Oct 02 2017 - Facebook

It's hard to imagine why we don't make it much harder for anyone to do this.feedback

Oct 02 2017 - Facebook

Many of these dynamics were new in this election, or at much larger scale than ever before in history, and at much larger scale than the interference we've found.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - Facebook

Beyond pushing back against threats, we will also create more services to protect our community while engaging in political discourse.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - Russia

It is a new challenge for internet communities to deal with nation-states attempting to subvert elections. But if that's what we must do, we are committed to rising to the occasion.feedback

Simply put: we don't build services to make money; we make money to build better services.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Facebook

In the next year, we will more than double the team working on election integrity. In total, we'll add more than 250 people across all our teams focused on security and safety for our community. It has always been against our policies to use any of our tools in a way that breaks the law, and we already have many controls in place to prevent this.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Facebook

Our sophistication in handling these threats is growing and improving quickly.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Facebook

It is always better to have some access than none at all.feedback

Sep 25 2017 - Facebook

It is our responsibility, to amplify the good effects [of the Facebook platform] and mitigate the bad – to continue increasing diversity while strengthening our common understanding so our community can create the greatest positive impact on the world.feedback

Sep 23 2017 - Facebook

It has always been against our policies to use any of our tools in a way that breaks the law, and we already have many controls in place to prevent this. But we can do more.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

It is a new challenge for internet communities to deal with nation states attempting to subvert elections. But if that's what we must do, we are committed to rising to the occasion.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Fake news

Personally, I think the idea that fake news on Facebook, which is a very small amount of the content, influenced the election in any way – I think is a pretty crazy idea.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

We will do our part not only to ensure the integrity of free and fair elections around the world, but also to give everyone a voice and to be a force for good in democracy everywhere.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

Over the past year and a half, Facebook's business has performed well and the value of our stock has grown to the point that I can fully fund our philanthropy and retain voting control of Facebook for 20 years or more. As a result, I've asked our board to withdraw the proposal to reclassify our stock -- and the board has agreed.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

I'm not going to sit here and tell you we're going to catch all bad content in our system. We don't check what people say before they say it, and frankly, I don't think our society should want us to.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

We're going to make political advertising more transparent.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

Not only will you have to disclose which page paid for an ad, but we will also make it so you can visit an advertiser's page and see the ads they're currently running to any audience on Facebook.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

We now plan to accelerate our work and sell more of those shares sooner.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

The idea was that it would allow me to keep voting control of Facebook so we can continue to build for the long term, but also allow Priscilla and me to fund the work we're doing through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. At the time, I felt that this reclassification was the best way to do both of these things. In fact, I thought it was the only way. But I also knew it was going to be complicated and it wasn't a perfect solution. This path offers a way to do all of this, and I'm looking forward to making more progress together.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Facebook

I don't want anyone to use our tools to undermine democracy. That's not what we stand for.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - Facebook

I'm not going to sit here and tell you we're going to catch all bad content in our system. We don't check what people say before they say it, and frankly, I don't think our society should want us to. If you break our community standards or the law, then you're going to face consequences afterwards. We won't catch everyone immediately, but we can make it harder to try to interfere.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - Facebook

You're taking away from all the time that I spent on this. I also have an assistant who helped set up this meeting. Does that mean I don't do the meeting?feedback

Sep 21 2017 - Facebook

As a general rule, we are limited in what we can discuss publicly about law enforcement investigations, so we may not always be able to share our findings publicly. But we support Congress in deciding how to best use this information to inform the public, and we expect the government to publish its findings when their investigation is complete.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - Facebook

Most ads are bought programmatically through our apps and website without the advertiser ever speaking to anyone at Facebook. That's what happened here. But even without our employees involved in the sales, we can do better.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Having kids does change how you think of the world in a pretty dramatic way.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - Facebook

One thing is certain, and it's that I'm a jerk for making this site. Oh well. Move fast and break things.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - Facebook

The days of you having a different image for your work friends or co-workers and for the other people you know are probably coming to an end pretty quickly. Having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - Facebook

To get people to this point where there's more openness – that's a big challenge. But I think we'll do it.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - Facebook

In a lot of ways Facebook is more like a government than a traditional company. We have this large community of people, and more than other technology companies we're really setting policies.feedback

Sep 15 2017 - Facebook

One of the things that I'm most proud of and I think is really key to our success is this testing framework we've built. At any given point in time there isn't just one version of Facebook running, there's probably 10,000.feedback

Sep 15 2017 - Snapchat

No, but this may be the last time Priscilla lets me dress her. I'll take a month off to be with Priscilla and the girls at the beginning, and then we'll spend the whole month of December together as well.feedback

Sep 15 2017 - Artificial Intelligence

Our goal with artificial intelligence is to build systems that are better than people at perception -- seeing, hearing, language and so on.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - Facebook

There is no place for hate in our community. It's a disgrace that we still need to say that neo-Nazis and white supremacists are wrong – as if this is somehow not obvious.feedback

Sep 13 2017

I make sure I work out at least three times a week – usually first thing when I wake up.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - IPhone

Our mission is to make the world more open and connected. We do this by giving people the power to share whatever they want and be connected to whoever they want, no matter where they are.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - Facebook

I went and I met with Steve Jobs, and he said that to reconnect with what I believed was the mission of the company, I should go visit this temple in India that he had gone to early in the evolution of Apple, when he was thinking about what he wanted his vision of the future to be.feedback

Sep 08 2017 - Facebook

Obviously you can't have a mission of wanting to connect everyone in the world and leave out the biggest country. Over the long term, that is a situation we will need to figure out a way forward on.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Fake news

Personally I think the idea that fake news on Facebook . . . influenced the election in any way – I think is a pretty crazy idea. Voters make decisions based on their lived experience.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - DACA

Most people don't get that there's currently no legal way for someone who is undocumented in the country to apply for citizenship.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - DACA

To offer the American dream to people. You are American. Our country is better for having you here, not because of the different diversity and experience you bring but because you all work super hard. That's as American as it gets. Bills don't just come up. People need to push on this.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - DACA

No bill is perfect, but inaction now is unacceptable.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - DACA

The decision to end DACA is not just wrong. It is particularly cruel to offer young people the American Dream, encourage them to come out of the shadows and trust our government, and then punish them for it.feedback

Sep 05 2017

Summit subscribes to the White House-endorsed Student Privacy Pledge, so everyone working on this has strict privacy controls to protect student data in accordance with the pledge.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - Snapchat

For a few months during the pregnancy we just had a lot of time to think about the world that she was going to grow up in and there are all these dreams that we had long-term.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - Snapchat

It's hard to have a community be a meaningful part of your support structure if you're not also connecting in the real world. We're going to keep focusing on giving everyone a voice and helping them stay connected to their friends and family but understanding that now we need to do more to help.feedback

Sep 01 2017 - Immigration

These young people represent the future of our country and our economy.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - Facebook

So we were like, okay, we need a new strategy to enable us to move fast. What we came up with was we're going to do this by building the best infrastructure, so an engineer who comes from any company is going to be able to ship their product faster, and test it better, and move faster and all these things, at Facebook than anywhere else in the world. So that's what we mean by move fast with stable infrastructure.feedback

Aug 27 2017 - Deportation

No one should try to deport them just to make a political point, and the leaders threatening to take away their protections need to do the right thing. DACA has allowed 800,000 young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents to live, work and contribute to this country.feedback

Aug 27 2017 - Christianity

That's a lot of people who now need to find a sense of purpose and support somewhere else. People who go to church are more likely to volunteer and give to charity–not just because they're religious, but because they're part of a community. A church doesn't just come together. It has a pastor who cares for the well-being of their congregation, makes sure they have food and shelter. A little league team has a coach who motivates the kids and helps them hit better. Leaders set the culture, inspire us, give us a safety net, and look out for us.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Facebook

Without that hunger, intelligence alone gets you nowhere.feedback

Aug 24 2017

How do I think of this? It's not a super rigorous process, I think is the first thing. I think it's whatever area I feel would make me a more rounded person–something that I feel like I'm missing, as perspective in my life.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Facebook

If I want to accelerate the development of something, the best thing that I could do is not go work on it myself, but make sure that a really good person is working on it full-time. When I do performance reviews with folks, a lot of the review is not just based on what they do over the period of the performance review. Do you have a good successor? Are all your key positions filled? I think good engineers and good technical entrepreneurs have that instinct where, when there's something they want to build, just go do it. Be entrepreneurial about it, and be a hacker and go do it.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Facebook

This is a really interesting shift, from being an engineer to running an organization. One of the great things about being an engineer is that you can actually go build something yourself. It's one of the few professions where you can sit down and code something, , and then at the end, you have a product. When you switch to building an organization, what you learn is that you're doing a bunch of different things, and that you can't do things yourself.feedback

Aug 18 2017 - Oculus

Think about how many of the things you use [that] don't actually need to be physical. You want to play a board game? You snap your fingers, and here's the board game.feedback

Aug 18 2017 - Facebook

I'll take a month off to be with Priscilla (Chan) and the girls at the beginning, and then we'll spend the whole month of December together as well.feedback

Aug 18 2017 - Facebook

Studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, it's good for the entire family.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Facebook

When someone tries to silence others or attacks them based on who they are or what they believe, that hurts us all and is unacceptable. There's not enough balance, nuance, and depth in our public discourse, and I believe we can do something about that. We need to bring people closer together, and I know we can make progress at that.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Terrorism

There is no place for hate in our community. That's why we've always taken down any post that promotes or celebrates hate crimes or acts of terrorism – including what happened in Charlottesville.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Facebook

I think the strategy of Facebook is to learn as quickly as possible what our community wants us to do – and that requires a culture that encourages people to try things and test things and fail. Ok, is this going to destroy the company?' Because if not, then let them test it.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Microsoft

I have more fear in my life that we aren't going to maximize the opportunity that we have than that we mess something up and the business goes badly.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Facebook

It's hard to have a community be a meaningful part of your support structure if you're not also connecting in the real world. We're going to keep focusing on giving everyone a voice and helping them stay connected to their friends and family but understanding that now we need to do more to help bridge some of the divides in society and bring the world closer together.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Facebook

You'll be able to chat and connect with people during an episode, and join groups with people who like the same shows afterwards to build community.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Facebook

Watching a show doesn't have to be passive. It can be a chance to share an experience and bring people together who care about the same things. That's why today we're launching the Watch tab in Facebook - a place where you can discover shows your friends are watching and follow your favourite shows and creators so you don't miss any episodes.feedback

Aug 09 2017 - Facebook

If I had to support my family growing up instead of having time to code, if I didn't know I'd be fine if Facebook didn't work out, I wouldn't be standing here today. Now it's our time to define a new social contract for our generation. We should explore ideas like universal basic income to give everyone a cushion to try new things. Seeing how Alaska put this dividend in place reminded me of a lesson I learned early at Facebook: organizations think profoundly differently when they're profitable than when they're in debt. When you're losing money, your mentality is largely about survival.feedback

Aug 04 2017

No one does. When you look at most big things that get done in the world, they're not done by one person.feedback

Aug 04 2017 - WhatsApp

We can look at messaging platforms in other parts of the world and use that as a floor.feedback

Aug 04 2017 - WhatsApp

The first thing we need to do on Messenger and WhatsApp is get a lot of businesses using it organically.feedback

Aug 02 2017

I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios–I just, I don't understand it. It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.feedback

Jul 31 2017 - Facebook

For decades, membership in all kinds of groups has declined as much as one-quarter. That's a lot of people who now need to find a sense of purpose and support somewhere else. This is our challenge.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Facebook

Video will be a much bigger driver of growth in the next two to three years than Messenger.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Facebook

We just started putting ads on Messenger. I want to see us move even faster. We can look at messaging platforms in other parts of the world and use that as a floor. I think we can do better.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Driverless cars

Every time we improve our AI methods, all of these systems get better. I'm excited about all the progress here and it's potential to make the world better.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - WhatsApp

I want to see us move a little faster here, but I'm confident we're going to get this right.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Snapchat

We had a good second quarter and first half of the year. Our community is now 2 billion people and we're focusing on bringing the world closer together.feedback

Jul 25 2017

With AI especially, I am really optimistic. I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios – I just, I don't understand it. It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Facebook

I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios – I just, I don't understand it. It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible. In the next five to 10 years, AI is going to deliver so many improvements in the quality of our lives.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Facebook

As I'm here in Africa, I'm deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX's launch failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent.feedback

One of the top causes of death for people is car accidents, still, and if you can eliminate that with AI, that is going to be just a dramatic improvement.feedback

If you who are watching this had more opportunity to go build something that would be a historic business or enterprise that could serve people all around the world, that would improve the economy and give services to all of us that we could all benefit from.feedback

Jul 24 2017 - Facebook

You have to get lucky in today's society in order for that to happen. And that, I think, is a huge issue. One of the things that I do feel strongly about, and I know a lot of people in my generation agree with, is that we really want to give everyone the opportunity to go pursue what matters to them and to go make a big difference.feedback

Jul 24 2017 - Facebook

If I had to support my family growing up instead of having time to code, if I didn't know I'd be fine if Facebook didn't work out, I wouldn't be standing here today.feedback

Jul 21 2017 - Facebook

If we did build a phone, we'd only reach one or two per cent of our users. That doesn't do anything awesome for us.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Facebook

Over the past year, daily watch time for Facebook Live broadcasts has grown by more than four times.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Facebook

My personal challenge this year is to visit every state I haven't spent time in before to learn about people's hopes and challenges, and how they're thinking about their work and communities.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Facebook

I always think that you should start with the problem that you're trying to solve in the world and not start with deciding that you want to build a company. The best companies that get built are things that are trying to drive some kind of social change, even if it's just local in one place, more than starting out because you want to make a bunch of money or have a lot of people working for you or build some company in some way.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - LinkedIn

Ideas don't come out fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started. If I had to understand everything about connecting people before I began, I never would have started Facebook.feedback

Jul 19 2017

An entrepreneurial culture thrives when it's easy to try lots of new ideas. The greatest successes come from having the freedom to fail.feedback

Jul 19 2017

Let's face it, . You accomplished something I never could.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Facebook

Some people say we should ignore government orders requiring us to restrict people's voice, even if that means the whole service would be blocked in those countries. I don't think that's right … If we ignored a lawful government order and then we were blocked, all of these people's voices would be muted, and whatever content the government believed was illegal would be blocked anyway.feedback

Jul 18 2017 - Facebook

An entrepreneurial culture thrives when it's easy to try lots of new ideas. I know lots of people who haven't pursued dreams because they didn't have a cushion to fall back on if they failed. … We should explore ideas like universal basic income to give everyone a cushion to try new things.feedback

Jul 18 2017 - Facebook

Seeing how Alaska put this dividend in place reminded me of a lesson I learned early at Facebook: organizations think profoundly differently when they're profitable than when they're in debt. When you're losing money, your mentality is largely about survival. But when you're profitable, you're confident about your future and you look for opportunities to invest and grow further.feedback

Jul 18 2017 - Facebook

A lot of what I saw comes back to the basic idea of freedom. If people have the freedom to do what they want – whether that's taking a chance on a new idea or building their community – the inherent creativity and goodness in people will help different parts of society flourish.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Facebook

That's been helpful in terms of being able to give really talented folks who haven't run big things before big roles in the company, and giving them a chance to either show that they can do it, or not.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - Facebook

On a day-to-day basis, a lot of the decisions I am making are, Okay, is this going to destroy the company? Because if not, then let them test it.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - Facebook

Facebook stands for bringing us closer together and building a global community. The most important thing we at Facebook can do is develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Facebook

Rather than fighting over resources...with a knowledge economy that's not the case. You learn something new, you discover something and everyone can benefit.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Facebook

We're live from a mile underneath the earth's surface. I hope more people who are watching this think about going into scientific research. There are a lot of places that have had their economies focused on natural resources or on the land that are shifting to modern knowledge economies.feedback

Another woman told me she has never paid for a drink her whole life.feedback

Jul 12 2017 - Net neutrality

If a service provider can block you from seeing certain content or can make you pay extra for it, that hurts all of us and we should have rules against it. Right now, the FCC has rules in place to make sure the internet continues to be an open platform for everyone. At Facebook, we strongly support those rules.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Facebook

That can be especially meaningful if your family has five or six people. This is a novel approach to basic income in a few ways. First, it's funded by natural resources rather than raising taxes. Second, it comes from conservative principles of smaller government, rather than progressive principles of a larger safety net. This shows basic income is a bipartisan idea.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Facebook

I know lots of people who haven't pursued dreams because they didn't have a cushion to fall back on if they failed. We all know we don't succeed just by having a good idea or working hard. We succeed by being lucky too. If I had to support my family growing up instead of having time to code, if I didn't know I'd be fine if Facebook didn't work out, I wouldn't be standing here today.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Facebook

Seeing how Alaska put this dividend in place reminded me of a lesson I learned early at Facebook: organizations think profoundly differently when they're profitable than when they're in debt. When you're losing money, your mentality is largely about survival. But when you're profitable, you're confident about your future and you look for opportunities to invest and grow further. Alaska's economy has historically created this winning mentality, which has led to this basic income. That may be a lesson for the rest of the country as well.feedback

Jul 02 2017 - Drones

We successfully gathered a lot of data to help us optimize Aquila's efficiency. No one has ever built an unmanned airplane that will fly for months at a time, so we need to tune every detail to get this right.feedback

I did think that someone was going to build a global social platform, I just thought there was no chance it was going to be us. Of course it wasn't going to be us. There [were] all these companies out there that know how to build this stuff and we weren't a company and I figured that somewhere in the world people were doing the real thing and I was just kind of messing around in my computer science classes.feedback

Our generation will have to deal with tens of millions of jobs replaced by automation like self-driving cars and trucks. When our parents graduated, purpose reliably came from your job, your church, your community. But today, technology and automation are eliminating many jobs. Membership in communities is declining.

Jun 22 2017 - Facebook

So this big question we have been asking is, So, if there 2 billion people on Facebook, why are there only (130 million) in meaningful communities? If we can get that to 1 billion, we will have reversed the whole declining trend for decades and start re-growing it to strengthen the social structure.feedback

When you are building internet software that you can change every day, I think there really is something to the strategy of just learn and go as quickly as you can, even if not every single release is perfect.

Facebook is so much about marrying the physical world with online. When you can make it so that you can intermix digital and physical parts of the world, that's going to make a lot of our experiences better and our lives richer. The camera needs to be more central than the text box in all of our apps. We're making the camera the first augmented reality platform. Even though they'll feel a little bit different in terms of features between Instagram and WhatsApp and Messenger, all the stuff that developers are going to build is going to be fundamentally compatible with cameras in all of these.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Facebook

We see something different...in order to create better tools, first we need an open platform where any developer in the world can build for augmented reality without having to first build a camera and get a lot of people to use it.

One example that has been quite controversial has been nudity. There are very different cultural norms ranging from country to country. In some places, the idea that showing a woman's breasts would be controversial feels backwards. But there are other places where images that are at all sexually suggestive, even if they don't show nudity, just because of a pose, that's over the line. You give people a voice and then you figure out what the implications of that are, and then you work on those things. It's just this constant work in progress.feedback

Social media and, to some degree, online news in general, are short form and there are some positives, because it forces people to focus their message. But there are negatives too.

We started with friends and family, which is the foundation of society. We always tried to offer that once we got out of the phase as a U.S. college service. We now have to build a global infrastructure that works for everyone. If you use Facebook, most people have 30 or 40 groups, but only one or two that really matter to you and you use actively. People do not seek other kinds of people out to connect. The best communities in the world have leaders.

Our philosophy is to give the most voice to the most people, not that everyone can say everything. I don't think we will be the ones to mark things as false.

Hugo shares my belief that virtual and augmented reality will be the next major computing platform. They'll enable us to experience completely new things and be more creative than ever before. Hugo is going to help build that future, and I'm looking forward to having him on our team.feedback

The goal is to make VR and AR what we all want it to be: glasses small enough to take anywhere, software that lets you experience anything, and technology that lets you interact with the virtual world just like you do with the physical one.feedback

I see video as a megatrend on the same order as mobile. That's why we're going to keep putting video first across our family of apps and making it easier for people to capture and share video in new ways.feedback

We're going to keep making big investments in VR content, and I'm excited about what's coming in 2017, from new games to more immersive educational experiences.feedback

I would ask for the patience of the investor community in doing that, because we're going to invest a lot in this and it's not going to return or be really profitable for us for quite a while.feedback

You know, I think there are parts of this that are on a good trajectory, and parts where we're a little behind, where we would want to be. I think Samsung shipping 5 million Gear VRs – that's their product, not ours, but we build technology that powers it. I think that's quite a good result, and one that we're very happy with. It just shows how strong of a company that Samsung is, being able to build these products and sell them through into the world.feedback

On the side of the products that we built, Rift and Touch, were both a little delayed, so that was obviously somewhat of a disappointment. And if you want to accelerate development, obviously, we need to get the product to the market at a good pace.feedback

But I don't think there really is a strategy to pull this in from 10 years to five. I just think it's going to be a 10-year thing. The analogy I always use is, the first smartphones came out in 2003. The BlackBerry and Palm Treo, and it took 10 years to get to a billion units. I don't know if there was something folks could have done to make that happen fast. But I think that was pretty good. And if we can be on a similar trajectory of anywhere near 10 years for VR and AR, I would feel very good about that.feedback

In terms of the content development, I actually think that's coming at a reasonable clip. Early on, there is this issue that if you're a triple-A game developer, until there's a certain volume of units in the field, you're not going to be able to make enough money to fund your game development, just based off of people buying your content. So that's why we're investing so much capital in content, to seed the ecosystem and solve this chicken-and-egg problem.feedback

We're only going to do this in a way that we're comfortable with in the long term.feedback

Upon reflection, I regret that I did not take the time to fully understand the quiet title process and its history before we moved ahead. For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had. No one will be forced off the land.feedback

We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don't pose a threat will live in fear of deportation. We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here. I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone.feedback

To find a better path forward, we are dropping our quiet title actions and will work together with the community on a new approach.feedback

For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had. No one will be forced off the land. We want to make sure we are following a process that protects the interests of property owners, respects the traditions of native Hawaiians, and preserves the environment. We love Kauai. We want to be good members of the community and preserve the land for generations to come.feedback

No. You can make change, but in order for it to be sustainable, you need to build a movement to support it.feedback

A few years ago, Priscilla and I visited Kauai and fell in love with the community and the cloudy green mountains. We kept coming back with family and friends, and eventually decided to plant roots and join the community ourselves.feedback

We bought land and we're dedicated to preserving its natural beauty. It's filled with wildlife like pigs, turtles, rare birds and seals, and local farmers use it to grow fruits and spices. I love taking Max to explore and see all the animals.feedback

We were having a lot of [conversations] on our side about whether this was the right thing to go forward and do. $2 billion is a lot of money ... this was a real big strategy investment ... it was a big and contentious discussion.... until the end we weren't certain.feedback

No, I wasn't aware of that. It's something we should investigate.feedback

I've spent significant time in many states already, so I'll need to travel to about 30 states this year to complete this challenge. My work is about connecting the world and giving everyone a voice. I want to personally hear more of those voices this year.feedback

Jan 03 2017

After a tumultuous last year, my hope for this challenge is to get out and talk to more people about how they're living, working and thinking about the future.feedback

It's going well–I've done a bunch of things in the community and just tried to get broader exposure.feedback

There are people who see the beauty of things. Then there are people who see things and want to make them better, and I tend to be the latter.feedback

Everything I did this year – natural language, face recognition, speech recognition and so on – are all variants of the same fundamental pattern recognition techniques. But even if I spent 1,000 more hours, I probably wouldn't be able to build a system that could learn completely new skills on its own.feedback
