Curiosity, Grief, Wonder & The Privilege of Being Alive with Mike Slavin | Curious Humans with Jonny Miller
"Certainty is a bit of a misnomer, it’s more of a clinging tendency to pre established worldviews often inherited from parents or the education system… when I lose certainty, I’m invited into this chance to be curious, to wonder and to explore."
Tiago Forte on Intuition, Breathwork & What it Feels like to Have a Second Brain | Curious Humans with Jonny Miller
"What would you do if your freedom and pleasure were essential to the freedom and pleasure of the world?" – Tiago Forte
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.

Free audiobook of Car Wars, my self-driving car/crypto back-door apocalypse story | Cory Doctorow’s craphound.com
Last month, Melbourne’s Deakin University published Car Wars, a short story I wrote to inspire thinking and discussion about the engineering ethics questions in self-driving car design, moving beyond the trite and largely irrelevant trolley problem.
Shortly after, I went into Skyboat Media’s studio and recorded an audio edition of the story, which the Deakin folks mastered with visuals and SFX to produce a smashing video.
I’ve extracted just the audio as an MP3 for your mobile listening/podcast pleasure, as well.
