  3. Simon Sinek: Why Leaders Eat Last

    About this presentation

    In this in-depth talk, ethnographer and leadership expert Simon Sinek reveals the hidden dynamics that inspire leadership and trust. In biological terms, leaders get the first pick of food and other spoils, but at a cost. When danger is present, the group expects the leader to mitigate all threats even at the expense of their personal well-being. Understanding this deep-seated expectation is the key difference between someone who is just an "authority" versus a true "leader."

    For more on this topic, check out Sinek’s latest book Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t now available for pre-order.

  4. Stanford Lecture: 2014 Kailath Lecture: Stanford Professor Donald Knuth

    "Let’s Not Dumb Down the History of Computer Science" -Professor Emeritus Donald Knuth, Stanford University

    For many years the history of computer science was presented in a way that was useful to computer scientists. But nowadays almost all technical content is excised; historians are concentrating rather on issues like how computer scientists have been able to get funding for their projects, and/or how much their work has influenced Wall Street. We no longer are told what ideas were actually discovered, nor how they were discovered, nor why they are great ideas. We get only a scorecard.

    In this talk, Professor Donald Knuth explains why he is grateful for the continued excellence of papers on mathematical history, and he makes a plea for historians of computer science to get back on track.

  7. Balaji Srinivasan: Coronavirus Will Shape This Decade Like 9/11 Shaped the 2000s

    How should the United States government and the rest of us respond to the coronavirus, which the World Health Organization has just declared a global pandemic?

    Balaji Srinivasan, who was on a short list to run Donald Trump’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has some strong opinions on the matter. Srinivasan is a former venture capitalist at Andreessen Horowitz and a serial entrepreneur with a Ph.D. in electrical engineering. The genetic testing company he co-founded, Counsyl, helped change the way millions of people prepare for parenthood; his cryptocurrency startup,, was acquired by Coinbase, where he served as chief technology officer. 

    In his prescient and lively Twitter feed, Srinivasan has been ahead of the curve in noting the coronavirus’s potential to cause a global public health crisis and to disrupt our economic and social lives. During a conversation conducted via Skype, he talked about why he thinks the coronavirus may have as big an impact on our way of life as the 9/11 attacks, how the United States government—especially the FDA he once might have headed—has fumbled its response, and why we’re likely looking at mandatory quarantines at the national level.

    At the same time, Srinivasan believes that private-sector and nonprofit actors are conducting a "digi…
