  6. Melissa Perri - Escaping the Build Trap (ALI2020)

    Are you building what your customers want, or are you just building? When successful companies first started out, they had to constantly deliver value to understand what their users wanted. This grew their business. Many large companies that have been around for decades, or even newer startups that have found some stability, fall into a dangerous place called “The Build Trap”. They continue building feature after feature, without stopping to validate it’s what customer truly want and need. This is due in part to poor understanding of Product Strategy, Product Management, and how to manage teams. In order to get out of “The Build Trap”, businesses need to restructure their thinking to focus on finding value for the user through experimentation to achieve business goals.

    Area of specialization Evolutionary ecology of infectious disease systems

    Research interests My main area of interest is the evolution of diversity in pathogens, with particular reference to the infectious disease agents that are responsible for malaria, influenza and bacterial meningitis. I am also interested in the evolution of host diversity under selection from infectious disease, with an emphasis on hemoglobin disorders that protect against malaria and the MHC.

  9. When The Dollar “Broke”, EVERYTHING Changed! (Market Update 9.25.20)

    SCHEDULE YOUR FREE PORTFOLIO REVIEW with John and the New Harbor Financial team here: https://www.greylockpeak.com/

    The year 1971 saw the trajectories of nearly every major trend relative to our way of life shift massively.

    That year is such a noticeable inflection point in so many data sets, that an intriguing website WTFHappenedIn1971.com has been created to drive the point home.

    The website is a parade of data series visually showing how the world changed that year.

    Be it income, the cost of living, political polarization, the divorce rate and a kitchen sink’s worth of other statistics — from the national debt to deficit spending, childhood obesity, the incarceration rate, energy use per capita — pretty much all aspects of life as we know it changed materially and permanently in the early 1970s.

    This week’s guest experts, Ben Prentice and Collin, founders of WTFHappenedIn1971.com, explain how virtually all of these changes are a direct or indirect result of the monetary system "breaking" that year with the Nixon Shock and the end of the Bretton Woods System.

    On a personal note, interviewing Ben and Collin was an unexpected pleasure, as I found it encouraging to discover that members of the Millennial generation are engaging with the shortcomings of our modern debt-based f…

  10. David Graeber has a drink with the Idler

    The anthropologist David Graeber chats to Idler editor Tom Hodgkinson and philosopher Mark Vernon about anarchism, bullshit jobs and the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the world of work.

    David Graeber is an American anthropologist and anarchist activist. Born and raised in New York, Graeber received his PhD from Chicago University and has held academic posts at NYU, Yale, Goldsmiths University and now the London School of Economics.

    He is the author of a number of books, including Debt: the First 5000 Years,  Utopia of Rules and, most recently, Bullshit Jobs: A Theory. He has been actively engaged in social movements since 2000, when he threw himself into the Alter-Globalization movement. David was involved in the initial meetings that helped set up Occupy Wall Street and has been working with the Kurdish Freedom Movement in various capacities as well.

    This conversation was recorded as part of the Idler’s series of weekly Zoom events on 16 July 2020.
