“What makes us cheer for Luke Synott,I’d like to know about new fb CEO tendencies on these matters LG Me too Nick Rowan asks How worried are you that we might eventually loose so many beautiful local languages because of Facebook’s reach LG: Im more than worried its almost certainly happening now I dont think theres any way to stop it If we want to be a connected species one of the ways were going to pay for it is by sacrificing our linguistic diversity Nick Rowan asks One more question: I understand Facebook’s intention is to try to connect the people of the world which is great But I worry about American talents spending so much resources to create something great without having any intention of the creator to share it with the global marketplace People and the companies here in the US meant to share some of these ideas with each other Do you think Does Facebook worry about sharing too much information with the rest of the world Doesn’t Facebook’s own existence depend on America’s superiority LG: I dont think Facebook is sharing too much information if youre talking about trade secrets and intellectual property that kind of information Or not that I know of And I dont think Facebook depends on American superiority but I definitely think it helps the people I met in India felt like Facebook offered them not just social connectedness but economic opportunity a connection however tenuous to American wealth Though I wouldnt rule out the possibility that America might start depending on Facebook one day deconstructiva asks #AskTIME Lev we’re all too aware of the disgusting Gamergate issues against women but has Gamergate been infiltrating fantasy literature too or has it avoided it Might upcoming fantasy novels and series help fight back against Gamergate misogyny and help level the playing field for young girls and women Or just stay out of the whole mess altogether LG: I dont think fantasy literature has avoided it I dont think its nearly as bad in gamingI mean the kind of harassment and hate speech we saw with GamerGate was absolutely vilebut sexism is definitely present in fantasy in places Also a serious lack of diversity Unlike in gaming I think theres already a strong powerful and very old tradition of women writing fantasy that we can build on But our work is far from done yogi asks Lev I’ve read the first two books in your Magicians trilogy (3rd is in the to read pile) I remember hearing a little while back that there was initial work into looking to make the series a TV show Is that still in the works LG: Its happening Theyre filming the pilot now Im not there but Ive seen some amazing photos from the set deconstructiva asks Lev where do you stand on the paper books vs e-books epic battle I don’t think paper books will ever go away For one thing servers crash and files corrupt so e-books do NOT always last forever In music vinyl records still exist let alone CD’s And when the power goes out during a long storm and the mobile devices’ batteries have died the paper books are still there to read LG: Im an evangelist for the paper book I just think its better information technology than any e-reader that exists And nobody owns it nobodys making money off it it’s not a proprietary format E-books are great for textbooks (which you don’t always hang on to after the course is over) and reference works (because of the searchability) but no screen can match the experience of reading a novel on paper When I die Im not going to leave my kids an Amazon account Im going to leave them a library deconstructiva asks Lev thanks for earlier writing about Apple invading our bodies After Apple’s watch Google Glass eyewear and fitness applications the next logical step is to go inside our bodies so that we really do turn into RoboCops While we already have smart medical devices how far away or close are we to conscious personal implants like iBrain and Google (rhymes with Glass) Would you be comfortable with personal control and privacy issues I sense not from your Apple-invading article and I’d be wary of literally losing control of one’s own body but I digress LG: I think we’re decades away from implants but not centuries away I know neural implants are already in use for medical purposes I don’t think I’m unusually squeamish but it would be hard for me to name a corporation I trust enough that I would let them put their product in my body as an implant deconstructiva asks Lev thanks for writing about Mark Zuckerberg Since his mission is to connect the world (literally) he might also want to tackle harder Facebook’s long history of privacy problems I’ve read many articles about people’s privacy issues with FB and even quitting the service So how much does Zuckerberg recognize this problem or is this just another technical issue to him After all the human element is more critical here than the technical one since if people can’t trust Facebook with their privacy he won’t be able to succeed in his Big Picture goal of wiring the world correct LG: Correct It’s been consumers rather than government that have been pushing back on this issue And in the early years Facebooks handling of privacy issues was clumsy and insensitive at best But one thing Zuckerberg does do is learn even when he doesn’t have a natural feel for something I dont know if its driven by ethical or economic motives or both but Zuckerberg has been learning to satisfy people’s demands for privacy on Facebook That said I don’t know how clear an idea people have of what exactly is done with their personal information on Facebook On that issue no amount of transparency is too much nflfoghorn asks Lev what do you think of this journalistic “list of” fad “Sixteen Things We’ve Learned About Kardashian’s Rump” “Four Things You Must Know About Ebola”…IMO it should be “One Thing You Must Know About American History” Every day LG: I think that would be a good idea The listification of American journalism is not a step forward PaulDirks asks In the ’60s we were all taught to fear government surveillance and the Church Commission did much to curtail the worst abuses In the 90’s we did battle over the clipper chip and for a while it seemed that the notion of 24/7 monitoring of citizens was put to a rest Today OTOH we offer Google and Facebook absolute knowledge of our every movement and no one seems to bat an eyelash at the fact that all that information can be subpoenaed at any moment Furthermore the people who have the most to lose with cameras everywhere appears to be the police Do you think that we’re being naive about the amount of information we make available online or is this just the unstoppable march of progress LG: I do think were being nave And its definitely the march of progress but I dont think its unstoppable I dont think well see people getting up in arms about it not directly because the vast majority of Americans havent and will never have their personal information used against them by the government The issue just doesn’t seem urgent to most people If the Snowden leak doesnt do that nothing will But were seeing it in other arenas: Sony getting hacked the mass theft of credit card info from Target naked pictures getting made public etc People understand about protecting their money and their bodies they’re less abstract than civil rights I think were learning hard lessons about how much information were willing to give out just because its conventient DonQuixotic asks Lev as someone who has worked in the process I assume you have some insight as to the selection process for TIME’s Person of the Year Is there a reason each year the list is padded with celebrities Hollywood start and music artists that have zero impact on the world Why we see a nomination for someone like Kim Kardashian but not say the people of Ukraine Mark Zuckerberg certainly earned his person of the year status Is it just a popularity contest now LG: Its a fair assumption But the truth is I dont participate very much in the selection process Early on in the process all staff members are asked to nominate candidates and I definitely do that But the rest of it happens above my pay grade Contact us at editors@timecomCoca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent likes new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau A lot The chief of the beverage giant brought up the newly elected prime minister during a panel on women in corporate leadership at the Women’s Forum of New York’s Breakfast of Corporate Champions on Nov 19 Later Kent brought Trudeau up again in an interview lauding the PM’s insistence on a Cabinet that is 50% female “Im a big big fan” Kent said “Hes my favorite feminist right now” Kent it seems isn’t shy with the f-word “If you’re a male and you’re at the top you have to be a feminist and you have to be proud of being a feminist” he says “Being a declared feminist Id even go as far as to positively discriminate to put it in peoples annual assessment” When Kent became CEO of Coca-Cola in 2009 he noticed a stark contrast: 70% of consumers were female but there were only two women on the corporate board and female senior leadership was in the low teens He says he recalls thinking to himself “this is the lowest-hanging fruit we need to solve this” Since then Kent has doubled the number of women on the board of the company (from two to four out of a total of 15) External hiring of women to senior leadership roles has increased from 13% in 2007 to 28% in 2014 And under Kent’s leadership the company has launched a 5by20 program with the goal of providing economic empowerment to women to 5 million women by 2020 Some 865000 women have participated in the entrepreneurial program across 52 countries Read More: Here’s What Happens When You Put More Women in Government That’s all part of the CEO’s “golden triangle” plan: getting more women on the board aiming for gender parity in senior leadership and doing something meaningful for women outside the company “In the second decade of the 21st century unless you’re able to balance the social and economic values properly you are not going to succeed economically” he says “Women have a better feeling a better immersion a better ideation on how to create positive balance between social and economic values” Cautioning against “lip service” corporate feminism Kent insists that “theres a lot of talk but you have to also actyou have to act with real precision and a real commitment” He says his company currently offers seven to eight weeks of paid maternity leave but that it is re-evaluating leave policies During the panel he said he favors term limits for board members to encourage more turnover and to help create opportunities for women (although Coca-Cola does not currently plan to implement board term limits) Companies need to be more flexible in allowing talented women to take advantage of technology to make their jobs work he says recalling an example of a high-ranking operator whom he allowed to telecommute from Paris to London so she wouldn’t have to uproot her daughter Flexibility through technology he says is his chief advice to young women leaders especially mothers: “If theres a dinner you don’t have to go for the entire dinner” he says “You stop by for 10 or 15 minuets before you go home you see and be seen establish the contacts and then call them on your phone Establish a network through technology” And the five million women he’s aiming to train with entrepreneurial skills “Having loyal women
