Why fascism is so tempting -- and how your data could power it | Yuval Noah Harari

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 18:23

In a profound talk about technology and power, author and historian Yuval Noah Harari explains the important difference between fascism and nationalism -- and what the consolidation of our data means for the future of democracy. Appearing as a hologram live from Tel Aviv, Harari warns that the greatest danger that now faces liberal democracy is that the revolution in information technology will make dictatorships more efficient and capable of control. "The enemies of liberal democracy hack our feelings of fear and hate and vanity, and then use these feelings to polarize and destroy," Harari says. "It is the responsibility of all of us to get to know our weaknesses and make sure they don't become weapons." (Followed by a brief conversation with TED curator Chris Anderson)

How I turn negative online comments into positive offline conversations | Dylan Marron

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 10:53

Digital creator Dylan Marron has racked up millions of views for projects like "Every Single Word" and "Sitting in Bathrooms With Trans People" -- but he's found that the flip side of success online is internet hate. Over time, he's developed an unexpected coping mechanism: calling the people who leave him insensitive comments and asking a simple question: "Why did you write that?" In a thoughtful talk about how we interact online, Marron explains how sometimes the most subversive thing you can do is actually speak with people you disagree with, not simply at them.

SPOS #613 - Tom Peters Is Back And Demands Excellence

1 Comment

Welcome to episode #613 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast - Episode #613 - Host: Mitch Joel. There is only one Tom Peters. He's a legend. Literally. For anyone in business, Tom Peters is the gold standard. From his countless bestsellers (In Search of Excellence, Re-Imagine, and on and on) to his incredible public presentations. He's a personal mentor to me (whether he wants to admit it or not) and I can best define him as a "cranky optimist." Tom is back with a brilliant new book (seriously, drop everything and go out and get it) called, The Excellence Dividend - Meeting The Tech Tech With Work That Wows And Jobs. Tom spent a significant amount of his earlier years in California, mainly Silicon Valley (where he was on a list of "100 most powerful people in Silicon Valley"), from 1965-2000. Tom is a civil engineering graduate of Cornell, where he was included in the book The 100 Most Notable Cornellians, and he earned an MBA and a Ph.D. in business at Stanford. He holds multiple honorary doctorates as well and has been honored by dozens of associations in content areas such as management, leadership, quality, human resources, customer service, innovation, marketing, and design. He was in the U.S. Navy from 1966-1970, where he made two deployments to Vietnam (as a combat engineer in the fabled Navy Seabees) and "survived a tour in the Pentagon." He was a White House/OMB drug-abuse advisor in 1973-1974, and then he worked at McKinsey & Co. from 1974-1981, becoming a partner in 1979. He also co-founded McKinsey's now gargantuan Organization Effectiveness practice. In 1981, Tom founded Skunkworks Inc. and The Tom Peters Company. As for his book? Just take a look here. After his many (many) years dealing and consulting with the top brands and business leaders in the world, his latest book, The Excellence Dividend is truly of the moment. From Tom's perch, there is perspective, insight and power that every person in business must pay attention to (and learn from). Enjoy the conversation...

3 myths about the future of work (and why they're not true) | Daniel Susskind

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 15:48

"Will machines replace humans?" This question is on the mind of anyone with a job to lose. Daniel Susskind confronts this question and three misconceptions we have about our automated future, suggesting we ask something else: How will we distribute wealth in a world when there will be less -- or even no -- work?
