I stupidly sent out the wrong excerpt in the last newsletter. It contained two errors. The terrorist attacked two mosques (not one) and killed fifty people (not forty-nine).
I deeply regret my mistake.
Here’s the actual excerpt from the book:
On March 15, 2019 a white supremacist opened fired on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand during evening prayer service. He murdered fifty people. He was wearing a camera and live-streaming his act of terror. The video went viral across multiple platforms, despite a public outcry to take it down. The platforms were doing exactly what they were designed to do: spread, sensationalize, and drive engagement. As teams across the major platforms attempted to eradicate the video from their service they found how out how difficult it is to get a system to stop doing what it’s been designed to do. Facebook alone had to remove it 1.5 million times in the first 24 hours. This shouldn’t have been a shock. After all, they were the ones who designed it that way.
