"Two things are going on at the same time with the flattening of the world: The relentless quest for efficiency is squeezing some of the fat out of life."

That is obviously right, since Google/YouTube became masters of censorship and we all know it well! !  

Friedman talks about technology and cars able to run by itself, but he doesn't talk about the Algorithm Google and others site use controlling everyone's "free-speech" as if everyone is a puppet!

Google Tracking Tools

Some of the tracking tools are showing changes as well. It is important to note that last week Semrush changed its tracker and adjusted its levels to stop it from always showing such high levels. But the spikes are still there, just not always in the red - which makes sense. Semrush confirmed this on Twitter saying "to improve sensitivity, the sensor was recalibrated to most accurately portray the volatility change over time." So keep that in mind...

This has been featured in 22 Feb 2017 - before the CONvid hype, therefore it hasn't been pro-active, yet!
