In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Christina Warren from Microsoft, who is a former journalist from Mashable and Gizmodo. You get to learn about journalism, fake news, and what’s happening in the big tech companies.

“This is what the news media struggles with, is that people don’t trust them, even though very often the mainstream media, in my opinion, isn’t out to mislead people and push an agenda. I think most working reporters are out to report the truth.

 

Microsoft is evolving and understands that it is not the past anymore. We ultimately want to build tools that developers can use regardless of what platform you’re on.” — Christina Warren
