Today tells the tale of two affiliates from the HPD community: Dan & Alberto. They have plenty of lessons to share with us about their content processes, common hurdles, resource allocation & more!
My guest this week, Eugene Wei, has one of the most
interesting backgrounds of anyone I’ve had on the podcast. He worked at Amazon
early in its life, was the head of product at Hulu and Flipboard, and head of
video and Oculus.
Our conversation is about the intersection of technology,
media, culture. We discuss Eugene’s concept of invisible asymptotes: why growth
slows down (for both companies and people) and how some can burst through. I’d
list more of the topics, but we covered so much that you should just listen.
Finally, I’ll say that after spending a day with Eugene
(including a wildly interesting dinner with Eugene, past podcast guest Sam
Hinkie, and future podcast guest Kevin Kwok) that he is the type of uniquely
interesting and kind person I am always searching for and one that I wish I
could bet on somehow. If you know more people like this, reach out and suggest
them for this podcast. Now, enjoy our conversation.
