Roger McNamee, a critic and former mentor of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, he told South by Southwest that he advised several Democratic presidential candidates on how to potentially regulate the technology industry. This includes people like the US Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Who launched her plan to regulate companies like Facebook, Google and Apple. He called Warren's proposal "brilliant", adding that he also spoke with the staff of other candidates, including American Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., As well as US Senator Cory Booker, DN.J.However, McNamee is not following his advice only to Democrats. In fact, he also spoke with members of the Trump administration and justice departments.Here's what's nice about it: it's not a right-to-left problem," McNamee said.
