After the livestream of the Christchurch massacre in 2019, tech giants decided to hire human moderators to identify heinous and hateful footage. In this edition, we look at the men and women who have taken up the dirty job of cleaning up the internet. We also find out more about HelloSign, which enables companies to replace traditional pen and paper with a secure online solution.


The 17-minute livestream of a terrorist attack on two New Zealand mosques in March 2019 caused a huge public outcry, with tech giants accused of being too slow to remove the footage from their platforms. Under pressure, they sought ways to make the internet safer, deciding to put humans back at the heart of the machine. Our reporters tell us more about how the tech giants are cleaning up the internet.

Plus, we speak to Whitney Bouck, the COO of HelloSign, a leading eSignature provider, which recently launched in 21 languages. She's been nominated one of the most influential women in the Bay Area in 2020 by the San Francisco Business Times. HelloSign enables companies to replace traditional pen and paper with a secure online solution so that agreements can be executed more quickly. A service that is becoming essential in the post-pandemic world. 

And in Test 24, we try the Cleanbox, a box that sanitises all your devices in the blink of an eye using UV sterilisation.
