Zuckerberg to Get Amongst the Hoi Polloi: Ask them How Technology and Globalization is Effecting Them: PS "It's Messing them Up Mark"

Maybe more lefties should have done this traveling and talking earlier. They could have staved off the Trump-Revolution.
"After a tumultuous last year, my hope for this challenge is to get out and talk to more people about how they're living, working and thinking about the future," Zuckerberg wrote in the post.
This is the latest personal challenge Zuckerberg has given himself. In previous years, he has built artificial intelligence for his home, learned Mandarin, read 25 books and ran 365 miles.
With this challenge, Zuckerberg is wading into a national debate over the societal impact of technology and Silicon Valley's disconnect with big segments of its users. The technology boom has created massive wealth and high-paying jobs in tech hubs such as Silicon Valley but technological advances and increased automation have destroyed jobs elsewhere.
Technology and Globalization is what took many of the jobs of the people that voted for Obama twice then voted for Trump. Maybe if more Silicon Valley billionaires like Zuckerberg actually meet some everyday Americans they might have a little more compassion for them. It would be interesting what Zuckerberg learns from this trip.
