  2. How technology brings out the worst in us, with Tristan Harris

    I interviewed Harris recently for my podcast. We talked about how the 2016 election threw Silicon Valley into crisis, why negative emotions dominate online, where Silicon Valley’s model of human decision-making went wrong, whether he buys Zuckerberg’s change of heart, and what it means to take control of your time. This transcript has been edited for length and clarity. For the full conversation, which includes the story of what happened when Harris brought legendary meditation teacher Thich Nhat Hanh to Google, listen or subscribe to The Ezra Klein Show.

  3. MacTalk - Webstock ‘12 | Matt Inman

    Matt Haughey has been running Metafilter for the last 14 years, so he knows a thing or two about web communities. Fresh from the Webstock stage, where he gave an hilarious account of what it’s like turning 40 in Silicon Valley, Matt was nice enough to chat with me about life, cats, and what it’s really like at the Googleplex.
