  3. Rethinking Technological Positivism with Cory Doctorow - CoRecursive Podcast

    Self-driving cars or armed autonomous military robots may make use of the same technologies. In a certain sense, we as software developers are helping to build and shape the future. What does the future look like and are we helping build the right one? Is technology a force for liberty or oppression.

    Cory Doctorow is one of my favorite authors and also a public intellectual with a keen insight into the dangers we face a society. In this interview, I ask him how to avoid ending up in a techno-totalitarian society. We also talk about Turing, DRM, data mining and monopolies.

  4. 36 Seconds That Changed Everything – How the iPhone Learned to Talk

    From the moment Steve Jobs announced it in 2007, anticipation for the first iPhone was off the charts. And when it shipped? Customers lined up around their local Apple stores; some arriving days before the phones could be bought.

    But the hype and hysteria left one group of cell phone users out – if you had a disability, the new hotness was just a cold, unresponsive rectangle of plastic and glass.

    This is the story of how that changed in June of 2009, and what it has meant to people who are blind, have a hearing disability, or experience motor delays.

    This is the story of iPhone accessibility.

  5. Jenny Odell: How To Do Nothing • Hurry Slowly

    Artist Jenny Odell on the power of actions that can’t be optimized and withholding your attention as an act of resistance.

    Every action doesn’t need to have a deliverable. In fact, engaging in “non-instrumental” activities is part and parcel of taking care of yourself and just, well, being a good person.

    This is the sentiment at the core of the artist Jenny Odell’s slow and beautiful new book, How to Do Nothing. In this conversation, we talk about the importance of activities that can’t be optimized — listening to another person, taking care of ourselves, contemplating a new idea — and why truly taking time to pay attention to the little things is an act of resistance.

  6. David Byrne:Good News & Sleeping Beauties - The Long Now

    David Byrne is a Scottish-American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, artist, actor, writer and filmmaker who was a founding member, principal songwriter and lead singer and guitarist of the American new wave band Talking Heads.

    Byrne has released solo recordings and worked with various media including film, photography, opera, fiction, and non-fiction. He has received Academy, Grammy, and Golden Globe Awards, and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (Bio courtesy of Wikipedia)

    David Byrne’s Homepage
    David Byrne’s Wikipedia page
    

    David Byrne has become a scholar and promoter of new good ideas that work in the world.

    He finds them in health, education, culture, economics, climate, science & technology, transportation, and civic engagement. He has great examples and great slides—as you might expect from an acclaimed visual as well as musical artist. His goal is to spread the word that there are a LOT of new things that work surprisingly well, and they can be applied far and wide.

    He has also delved into history for “sleeping beauties”—brilliant ideas that got overlooked or forgotten but can be revived. He’s interested in how that rediscovery process works and can be made better.

    Now 67, David Byrne’s prolific artistic career has earned honors including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Awards. Most famed for his new-wave band “Talking Heads” (1975-1991), Byrne continues to perform on the road and has made numerous films, books, and graphic art works. He frequently collaborates with Long Now board member Brian Eno.
