    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "If The New York Times can protect us from the weaponization of their platform with $90 million in cash flow, Facebook can figure it out with $12 billion. Facebook could hire 10,000 people to screen content, they could spend a half a billion dollars a year on artificial intelligence to help those people identify and flag that content, and it would dent their free cash flow five or 10%. When big tech tells you something is impossible, that's Latin for, 'we would be less profitable if we did this.'"

    Excerpt from DNAinfo -- "'The LLC constructions are common, especially on the higher end,' he said, noting that a report from the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) found that 30 percent of sales involving LLCs were connected to people who had been reported for suspicious activity by financial institutions.

    Excerpt from Cheddar -- "New York City has among the most stringent regulations on short-term rentals, so it makes it increasingly hard to rent your place out on Airbnb relative to most American cities. I think the right regulatory approach is to first recognize that the regulatory boxes that were created for hotels don't fit the typical Airbnb host because this is fundamentally a different business model."
