I'm sure everything this guy says is true, so why don't I trust him?
There's something slippery and evasive about this man. He keeps on dangling juicy titbits and claiming his revelations are "amazing" and so on, yet we never get any meaningful details. Okay, so Google insert an ephemeral image of a cartoon character's head exploding in order to influence our kids, but to what purpose? What result is that subversive image supposed to achieve? Apart from making some kids addicted to violent images and blunting their sensibilities.
And if he says "archiving two million lines of ephemeral data" once he must say it fifteen times. Well, so what? What does he do with it? He claims to fight back at Google but never says how it works -- except that three senators sent letters to the head of Google complaining of election tampering. Jimmy should have asked him of specific and concrete examples of these "ephemeral messages" and what they were supposed to achieve. I was left suspicious and unconvinced.
