  1. How GIFs Became Embedded in Our Culture

    Ah, the humble animated GIF. We use them on social media or in text messages as a way to signify a reaction, tell a story, or just to have a laugh.

    This week on Function, we explore the origins of GIFs; their place in internet culture; and why GIFs have flown under the copyright radar. Anil speaks with Kenyatta Cheese, a long-time Internet historian and co-creator of Know Your Meme, talks about the history of the GIF format and how GIFs became a fundamental part of meme and internet culture.

    Then he’s joined by T. Kyle MacMahon, digital and social producer for Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. about his website RealityTVGIFs, his thoughts on how animated GIFs have influenced modern television, and why these images aren’t going away any time soon.

  3. 53 - Eric Schmidt on the Life-Changing Magic of Systematizing, Scaling, and Saying Thanks (Live)

    The son of an economist, Eric Schmidt eschewed his father’s profession, first studying architecture before settling on computer science and eventually earning a PhD. Now one of the most influential technology executives in the world, he still however credits his interest in network economies and platforms for a large part of his success. 

    In this live event hosted by Village Global in San Francisco, Tyler questioned Schmidt about underused management strategies, what Google learned after interviewing one job candidate sixteen times, his opinion on early vs. late Picasso, the best reform in corporate governance, why we might see a bifurcation of the Internet, what technology will explode in the the next 10 years, the most underrated media source, and more.

  4. 42 - David Brooks on Youth, Morality, and Loneliness (Live at Mason)

    For two hours every morning, David Brooks crawls around his living room floor, organizing piles of research. Then, the piles become paragraphs, the paragraphs become columns or chapters, and the process - which he calls "writing" - is complete.

    After that he might go out and see some people. A lunch, say, with his friend Tyler. And the two will discuss the things they’re thinking, writing, and learning about. And David will feel rejuvenated, for he is a social animal (as are we all).

    Then one day David will be asked by Tyler to come on his show, and perform this act publicly. To talk about his love for Bruce Springsteen, being a modern-day Whig,

    his "religious bisexuality," covenants vs. contracts, today’s answer to the "Fallows Question," why failure is overrated, community and loneliness, the upside of being invaded by Canada, and much more.

    And though he will be intimidated, David will oblige, and the result is here for you to enjoy.

  5. 41 - Nassim Nicholas Taleb on Self-Education and Doing the Math (Plus special guest Bryan Caplan)

    Though what Taleb was really after was a discussion with Bryan Caplan (which starts at 51:50), the philosopher, mathematician, and author most recently of Skin in the Game also generously agreed to a conversation with Tyler. 

    They discuss the ancient Phoenicians and Greco-Roman heritage of Lebanon, philology, genetics, the blockchain, driverless cars, the advantages of Twitter fights, how to think about religion, fancy food vs. Auntie Anne’s pretzels, autodidactism, The Desert of the Tartar, why Taleb refused to give a book tour, inverse role models, why math isn’t just a young man’s game, and more.

  7. 356. America’s Hidden Duopoly

    We all know our political system is “broken” — but what if that’s not true? Some say the Republicans and Democrats constitute a wildly successful industry that has colluded to kill off competition, stifle reform, and drive the country apart. So what are you going to do about it?

  9. Munk Debate: The Rise of Populism

    Steve Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News and former chief strategist to President Trump, argues for the resolution that the “future of western politics is populist, not liberal.”

    Arguing the opposing side is Canadian-American David Frum, senior editor at The Atlantic, former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, and author of the recent book "Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Public."

    Rudyard Griffiths moderates the debate from Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto. (November 2, 2018)

    Note: Due to a technical error, the Munk Debates announced incorrect voting results at the conclusion of the event. The final official audience vote on the resolution was 28% in favour and 72% opposed. The Munk Debates have announced that the debate ended in a draw and apologized for the error.

  10. 52 - Ben Thompson on Business and Tech

    Not only is Ben Thompson’s Stratechery frequently mentioned on MR, but such is Tyler’s fandom that the newsletter even made its way onto the reading list for one of his PhD courses. Ben’s based in Taiwan, so when he recently visited DC, Tyler quickly took advantage of the chance for an in-person dialogue. 

    In this conversation they talk about the business side of tech and more, including whether tech titans are good at PR, whether conglomerate synergies exist, Amazon’s foray into health care, why anyone needs an Apple Watch or an Alexa, growing up in small-town Wisconsin, his pragmatic book-reading style, whether MBAs are overrated, the prospects for the Milwaukee Bucks, NBA rule changes, the future of the tech industries in China and India, and why Taiwanese breakfast is the best breakfast.
