  2. Jens Riegelsberger of Google

    In this episode, Travis Neilson interviews Jens Riegelsberger, a UX Director at Google, about the company’s evolving design identity. Riegelsberger discusses his role in launching Google’s Product Excellence program—an initiative that sets the bar for quality and usability across all Google products—and what it means to build teams that favor multiple perspectives and diverse skillsets. A few highlights: On being a good leader“Look at your job as chiefly to enable other people’s insights and eureka moments. That doesn’t mean abdicating responsibility. It takes actually quite a bit of work to do this well.” On embracing healthy friction“Frankly, we can’t have a static, preordained culture because we work in a field where so much change is happening all the time. So knowing that we all have to negotiate culture and that it’s a fluid thing prepares us well for the changes that are coming.” On the value of “dabbling”“I have a PhD in computer science, but I also taught at art school. So there’s this mix of different identities that I’ve had to cobble together. I’ve never deeply believed, ‘Okay, this worldview is the only true worldview; my science or my community knows how it’s done,’ because I’ve always jumped around.”

  6. ‘Prohibition Will Get You Nowhere’: Cory Doctorow’s Message to Schools and Educators

    It’s not unheard of for an instructor to tee up a YouTube video for a lesson, only to have the content blocked by the school or district’s censorware. And while administrators might have good intentions when they decide to use censorware, censorship is often only effective for those who play by the rules.

    It’s one reason why writer and activist Cory Doctorow thinks schools and educators should rethink their approach to surveillance and censorship. In science fiction novels like “Little Brother,” he has explored the implications of mass surveillance, and on the popular blog Boing Boing, he has written on topics such as net neutrality, open access and user privacy.

    EdSurge recently sat down with Doctorow in San Jose, Calif. at Worldcon, a science fiction convention, to get his take on everything from surveillance in K-12 schools to open access publishing in higher education.

  7. Anand Giridharadas on the elite charade of changing the world

    “How can there be anything wrong with trying to do good?” asks Anand Giridharadas in his new book, Winners Take All. “The answer may be: when the good is an accomplice to even greater, if more invisible, harm.”

    Giridharadas has done his time in elite circles. His education took him through Oxford and Harvard, he spent years as a New York Times columnist, he’s a regular on Morning Joe, he’s a TED talker. And so when he mounted the stage at the Aspen Institute and told his fellow fellows that their pretensions of doing good were just that — pretensions — and that they were more the problem than the solution, it caused some controversy.

    Giridharadas’s new book will make a lot of people angry. It’s about the difference between generosity and justice, the problems with only looking for win-win solutions, the ways the corporate world has come to dominate the discourse of change, and the fact that elite networks change the people who are part of them.

    But for all the power of Giridharadas’s critique of elite do-goodery, does he have better answers to the problems they’re trying to solve? And what of the very real problems that have left so many disillusioned with government, or the very real accomplishments that exist in the systems we’ve built? If we are pursuing change wrong, then what needs to be changed to pursue it better?

  8. Bob D. - AA Speaker - “The Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous” (Very entertaining!)

    This is an AWESOME share by one of my favorite AA speakers, Bob D. REALLY worth listening to! Bob D. has such an enlightening and entertaining way of explaining the twelve traditions, the tape seems to fly by! Yes, this one is a MUST LISTEN! Enjoy :)

    From the book Alcoholics Anonymous: "In spite of the great increase in the size and span of this Fellowship, at its core it remains simple and personal. Each day, somewhere in the world, recovery begins when one alcoholic talks with another alcoholic, sharing experience, strength, and hope."

    What is the Twelve Step Model? How is it a "treatment for alcoholism" or "alcohol abuse?"

    From Wikipedia: "A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles (accepted by members as ‘spiritual principles,’ based on the approved literature) outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism, the Twelve Steps were first published in the book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism in 1939. The method was then adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs. Twelve-step methods have been adopted to address a wide range of substance-abu…

  9. Getting Better by Being Wrong: My Conversation with Poker Pro Annie Duke [The Knowledge Project Ep. #37]

    On this episode, best-selling author and professional poker player Annie Duke and I discuss how to disagree without being disagreeable, spotting biases that sabotage our success, how to find signal in noise, and reliable decision-making models for high stakes, high-pressure situations.

    Subscribe on iTunes | Stitcher | Spotify | Android | Google Play

    I have wanted to do this interview for a long time. On this episode, I am thrilled to have Annie Duke, former professional poker player and author of the new book, Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts.

    Annie has a very interesting background that makes her uniquely qualified to speak about high-level decision making. As an author, speaker, world-class poker player, and academic in the fields of psychology and cognitive theory, Annie understands the intersection of luck, skill, and making decisions in uncertain, chaotic environments better than most people on the planet.

    This is a whirlwind of an episode, and we cover all kinds of fascinating topics, including:

    The strange circumstances that shifted Annie’s path from finishing a Ph.D. in linguistics to becoming a professional poker player

    What it was like to be a female poker player in a predominantly male sport (especially before poker had become socially acceptable)

    What drew Annie into such a high stakes, time-pressured environment and why she felt like poker was the perfect fit for her

    How her graduate work in psychology informed the way she approached the game of poker — and helped her rack up wins

    How she finds the signal in a very noisy stream of feedback

    The big mistakes Annie noticed other players making that were stalling their progress in the game but allowed her to make giant leaps forward

    The role that mental models played in her learning process (and which models Annie liked to lean on the most in a high stakes game)

    The power of surrounding yourself with people that can help you expand your circle of competence — and how that made all the difference in Annie’s development as a player

    Confirmatory and exploratory thought, and how one helps us to be “accurate” and one helps us to be “right.”

    The secret pact you should be making with the people who are closest to you

    And so much more.

    This episode is just under two hours long, but there’s no fat in it. Annie delivers a masterclass in making the smartest decisions we can, even when our hubris insists otherwise. Do some finger stretches before hitting play, because you’re going to be taking some serious notes.

    Please enjoy the interview!
