If I bought Twitter, the first thing I’d do is… Probably sell it to someone else with a greater understanding of how to make it successful.

My best ideas come when… I walk to work.

Where do you work most frequently—home, office, road? Office. I’m addicted to my huge monitor for Teams meetings. I also keep my emergency stash of Girl Scout cookies for the nights I work late.

Biggest roadblock in fiber expansions? In Alaska the biggest roadblock, besides the cost of building over such vast distances, is the amount of protected lands. 88% of the land in Alaska is owned or regulated by the state or federal government. The permitting process may take longer than the actual construction.

Streaming app I use the most: Netflix

My prediction for NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube: I’ll let the football fans decide.

My biggest irrational phobia: Well-intentioned government officials…is that irrational?

Which website or app do you visit most when procrastinating? YouTube. It’s how I discovered Lizzo.

Last TV series watched: “Wednesday” on Netflix

What foreign-language program is a must-see for English speakers? I enjoyed “Squid Game.” But I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone.

TV intro you won’t skip? “Westworld”

Slack or Microsoft Teams? Teams. It’s hard to believe we conducted much of our business via conference calls just a few years ago.
