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.
