This week on Floor 9, we’re joined by Joshua Lowcock, Chief Digital Officer of UM and one of our favorite Australians, to discuss what happened in Australia over the last few weeks regarding the News Media Bargaining Code. Together with co-hosts Adam and Scott, they talk about how things went down between the Australian government and Facebook and Google, the implications of their concessions to local publishers and regulators in Australia, and how the fallout of this battle will shape the development of the splinternet.

Before the main conversation, Adam and Scott talked about the top news of the week, which include Google’s decision to stop using third-party cookies, Twitter Spaces arriving on Android, Instagram’s new Live Room feature, and Square launching its own B2B bank services.
