In this episode, Fredrik Erixon and Nicklas Berild Lundblad discuss the culture of freedom of speech online and how that culture gets strong impulses by governments that are pushing regulations that directly or indirectly forces digital platforms to censor more content.
Nicklas Berild Lundbland is best described as a polymath. He is a thinker and writer who is curious about technology, philosophy and society – and he has a blog called Unpredictable Patterns and runs the Regulate Tech podcast together with Richard Allan. Previously one of the top bosses at Google, he is now the global head of tech policy at Stripe. Nicklas joins in a private capacity, and the views he share are his own and not those of any other entities he is associated with.
