Recode Daily: The YouTube HQ shooter was apparently upset about YouTube’s new rules

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

After the shooting, YouTube employees were walked out of the building with their hands up.

Plus, Spotify’s unusual IPO led to a $ 27 billion valuation, Apple hires Google’s AI head, and “2001: A Space Odyssey” turns 50.

A woman opened fire Tuesday afternoon at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, Calif., injuring three before taking her own life. The suspected shooter has been identified as 39-year-old Nasim Najafi Aghdam. Numerous reports and supposed posts by Aghdam indicate that she was disgruntled about recent policy changes made by YouTube, which made it harder for tens of thousands of small video makers — apparently including Aghdam — to make money using YouTube’s ad revenue-sharing program.

Spotify’s first day of trading as a public company ended up being surprisingly normal — and that’s a win for its “direct listing” strategy. About 30 million shares of Spotify’s 178 million outstanding shares traded hands yesterday, and after a drop of about 11 percent from the opening price of $ 165.90, the stock was trading at around $ 149 by afternoon; at the end of the day, Spotify was considered by Wall Street to be a $ 27 billion company.

Apple has hired Google’s chief of search and artificial intelligence. John Giannandrea, who helped lead the push to integrate AI throughout Google’s products, will run Apple’s machine learning and AI strategy, and will be one of 16 executives who report directly to CEO Tim Cook. The hire is a major coup for Apple, which many Silicon Valley executives and analysts view as lagging its peers in artificial intelligence. [Jack Nicas and Cade Metz / The New York Times]

Make time for this wide-ranging conversation with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is on a seemingly endless pilgrimage to the nodes of American power — he visited Silicon Valley and Hollywood this week. The prince’s current U.S. visit is mainly a hunting trip for investment, and an opportunity for him to sell his so-called Vision 2030, an elaborate, still mainly unexecuted plan to modernize the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and end its dependence on oil.

Here’s an in-depth examination of how Twitter was hijacked by the dark side: The company’s early zeal for free speech ultimately blinded it to safety concerns that continue to plague the platform.

YouTube’s CEO says Logan Paul doesn’t deserve to be kicked off the platform

Controversial YouTube star Logan Paul doesn’t deserve to be kicked off the platform — at least not yet, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said today. Paul has been under fire since his trip to Japan, when he posted video of a person who committed suicide. YouTube has temporarily suspended advertising revenue on Paul’s account. But speaking at the Code Media conference in Huntington Beach, CA, Wojcicki said that Paul hadn’t met the criteria for being banned from the platform.

“He hasn’t done anything that would cause those three strikes,” Wojcicki said. “We can’t just be pulling people off our platform … They need to violate a policy. We need to have consistent [rules]. This is like a code of law.”

Wojcicki was responding to a question from…

YouTube’s live TV service is now available for Apple TV devices

YouTube’s streaming live TV service is now available on Apple TV devices, the Google-owned video site revealed in a surprise announcement this afternoon. In a tweet telling Apple TV owners to check the App Store, the official YouTube TV account disclosed that its app is now available on tvOS devices. This follows news earlier today that YouTube TV has made its way to compatible Roku devices as well.

YouTube TV’s expansion to other popular set-top box platforms has been a bit of a rollercoaster since its spring 2017 launch, with YouTube saying back in December that it had delayed its Roku and Apple TV app launches to the first quarter of 2018 after failing to meet an earlier deadline the company set back in late October. Then, earlier…
