  1. Venkatesh Rao on The Three Types of Decision Makers, Mental Models, and How to Process Information

    Venkatesh RaoOn this episode of The Knowledge Project, I have Venkatesh Rao.

    Chris Dixon, a previous guest on the show, suggested I interview Venkatesh, who is a writer, independent researcher and consultant.

    Venkatesh is the founder of the blog Ribbonfarm, the technology analysis site Breaking Smart, and the author of a book on decision making called Tempo.

    We talk about a host of fascinating subjects, including the 3 types of decision makers, mental models, the implications of the free age and economy, and how to process information. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.

  2. Longform Podcast #174: Venkatesh Rao

    Venkatesh Rao is the founder of Ribbonfarm and the author of Breaking Smart.“I would say I was blind and deaf and did not know anything about how the world worked until I was about 25. It took until almost 35 before I actually cut loose from the script. The script is a very, very powerful thing. The script wasn’t working for me.”Thanks to MailChimp and CreativeLive for sponsoring this week's episode.
