Regulating Social Media -- my talk at the University of Virginia

Here is a talk I gave on January 25th, 2019, at a conference on the Internet and Democracy at the University of Virginia.  The subject is how to regulate social media. The title U.

Under the old program, veterans could go to the private sector if they would have to wait 30 days or travel 40 miles for care in the VA...
