  1. How Social Media Killed Traditional News | Oliver Luckett

    The church was the first news magnate, says tech entrepreneur Oliver Luckett. It was a top-down centralized network where just few people could access the word of God, and would disseminate that information to the masses. Centuries later another top-down network emerged: print and later television media boomed and set the agenda, relaying information with authority from just a handful of networks. Today’s communication system has a different architecture: it’s holonic, says Luckett, or horizontally disseminated – everyone with a signal and a device can produce, contribute, dispute and report news. So in which system are we better off? Are we any closer to the truth now than we were then? Luckett contends that human emotion has become the editor-in-chief of today’s news, and that to steer us away from misinformation, fake news, and opinion masquerading as fact, it will require a concerted effort in social responsibility – something that we may not be capable of en masse. Oliver Luckett and Michael J. Casey’s book is The Social Organism: A Radical Understanding of Social Media to Transform Your Business and Life

  5. Obama: A Legacy of Ashes

    SHOW NOTES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=21383

    Obama’s legacy is measured in ashes. From wars of aggression to a police state on steroids, banking bailouts and Obamacare, Obama has been the perfect captain to carry the New World Order football further down the field. But as Americans prepare for a new liner to be placed in their gilded bird cage, today we remember how the Deep State tricked the public in 2008 by giving them what they thought they wanted.

  7. Tim Ferris: Ask Absurd Questions and Stop Fetishizing Failure

    There are two start-up trends that are sweeping Silicon Valley and beyond: one, says Tim Ferriss, needs to be redefined, and the other needs to be more widely activated. The first has gained so much popularity it has become a motto: “fail fast, fail forward”. Ferriss is concerned that we’re fetishizing failure as something harmless that only leads upwards, when in reality in some industries it can be quite deadly. The second is the practice of absurd questions. Billionaire investor Peter Thiel will look at a business plan and say to its creator: “Why can’t you accomplish your ten-year plan in the next six months?” Asking seemingly crazy questions, and setting hypothetical limits (such as, “how would you hit your goal in the same time by working only 2 hours per week?”), forces divergent thinking and can prompt you to actually do what once seemed unthinkable. Tim Ferriss is the author of Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers (https://goo.gl/BZTial).

  8. When Machines Have Ideas | Ben Vigoda | TEDxBoston

    Astronomers shared stories through the ages, enabling them to contradict and learn from each other. They broke stories apart and put them together in better ways—readjusting and reconsidering beliefs—to present new ideas that are more compelling and more accurate. Machines can do that too. "When we build stories into machine intelligence systems, we should enable them to attach probabilities to their stories" says Ben Vigoda.

    Ben Vigoda is Founder, CEO/CTO of Gamalon Machine Intelligence. Before founding Gamalon, Ben was technical co-founder and CEO of Lyric Semiconductor, a startup that created the first integrated circuits and processor architectures for statistical machine learning and signal processing. He currently serves on the DARPA Information Science and Technology (ISAT) steering committee. Ben also co-founded Design That Matters, a not-for-profit that for the past decade has helped solve engineering and design problems in under-served communities and has saved thousands of infant lives by developing low-cost, easy-to-use medical technology such as infant incubators, UV therapy, pulse oximeters, and IV drip systems that have been fielded in 20 countries. Ben completed his PhD at MIT developing circuits for implementing machine learning algorithms natively in hardware.

  9. The Social Media Exodus Has Begun. Here’s Where Everybody’s Going.

    SHOW NOTES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=21349

    10 years ago, everybody was on MySpace. 10 years from now, the Twitters and Facebooks and YouTubes of today will be dinosaurs, abandoned by users sick of censorship and centralized control. Thankfully, the alternatives to these social media dinosaurs are already here, and they’re blockchain-based, torrent friendly, decentralized and censorship resistant.
