  1. How I built this with Stewart Butterfield

    In the early 2000s, Stewart Butterfield tried to build a weird, massively multiplayer online game, but the venture failed.

    Instead, he and his co-founders used the technology they had developed to create the photo-sharing site Flickr.

    After Flickr was acquired by Yahoo in 2005, Butterfield went back to the online game idea, only to fail again.

    But the office messaging platform Slack rose from the ashes of that second failure — a company which, today, is valued at over $5 billion.

  6. #16 Model Behavior — with entrepreneur/investor Caterina Fake (Etsy, Kickstarter, Flickr)

    Whatever you are when you’re small gets amplified when you grow. So if you’re staring any kind of online community (social media, e-commerce, crowd-funding…) be careful what you cultivate. Caterina Fake has founded or invested in companies with the most interesting and influential communities - Flickr, Etsy, Kickstarter, Stack Overflow, even Blue Bottle Coffee. Her wise words for every founder: You have has a responsibility to shape the community from day one — because the tone you set is the tone you’re going to keep, even as you go viral.

  7. Zeynep Tufekci: We’re building a dystopia just to make people click on ads | TED Talk

    We’re building an artificial intelligence-powered dystopia, one click at a time, says techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci. In an eye-opening talk, she details how the same algorithms companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon use to get you to click on ads are also used to organize your access to political and social information. And the machines aren’t even the real threat. What we need to understand is how the powerful might use AI to control us — and what we can do in response.

  10. Kevin Kelly: How AI can bring on a second Industrial Revolution

    "The actual path of a raindrop as it goes down the valley is unpredictable, but the general direction is inevitable," says digital visionary Kevin Kelly — and technology is much the same, driven by patterns that are surprising but inevitable. Over the next 20 years, he says, our penchant for making things smarter and smarter will have a profound impact on nearly everything we do. Kelly explores three trends in AI we need to understand in order to embrace it and steer its development. "The most popular AI product 20 years from now that everyone uses has not been invented yet," Kelly says. "That means that you’re not late."
