“You need ID to buy groceries. Why don’t you need ID to prove who you really are on Facebook or Twitter?”

That’s Bill Maher’s first question for Recode co-founder and Editor at Large Kara Swisher on last night’s “Real Time” on HBO.

Swisher and Maher talk about tech’s need to take greater responsibility, her recent Recode Decode podcast with Mark Zuckerberg and her latest take on social media.

“What I realized when I was talking” to Mark Zuckerberg, she said, “was that he didn’t take humanities in college — because he didn’t finish college, and instead became a billionaire — so they don’t have a great sense of the impact of the things they built.”

There is also an f-bomb.
