Who Are You?
I’m not talking about your name or occupation.
I’m talking about something bigger, something deeper. I’m talking about your connection to a culture, a history, a destiny. An identity that stretches back—and flows forwards—for centuries … an identity you can glimpse in the face of a grandparent, or your child … An identity you know through experience … through people … through places … through music.
Our ancestors had a strong sense of their identities. They could say: I’m a Roman … a Saxon … a Dane … Some could say I’m a European. To be exiled from their communities and identities was a fate worse than death. Today, we seem to have no idea who we are … We’re rootless … We’ve become wanderers … perhaps, we’ll also become seekers.
Who are we?
We are often told that being an American—or a Briton or German or any European nationality—is about being dedicated to a collection of abstractions and buzzwords: democracy … freedom … tolerance … multiculturalism …
But a nation based on "freedom" is just another place to go shopping. It’s a country for everyone … and thus a country for no one … it’s a country in which we ourselves have become strangers. Man doesn’t live,…
The idea of ‘atonement’ sounds very old-fashioned and is deeply rooted in religious tradition. To atone means, in essence, to acknowledge one’s capacity for wrongness and one’s readiness for apology and desire for change. It’s a concept that every society needs at its center.

“‘Atonement’ is a slightly unfamiliar, old-fashioned and alien word. It means, according to the dictionary, the action of making amends for a wrong or injury and, especially in religious contexts, reparation or expiation for sin. The modern world chiefly believes that the rightful way to amend for a wrong is either to pay a fine or go to prison. These are, in certain circumstances, surely the best moves – but they fail to deal with what is, in the end, the far largest category of wrongs that humans commit: instances of everyday nastiness, error, foolishness, lack of empathy and shortsightedness. Fining or imprisoning on a mass scale is not realistic here and yet, leaving the wrongs unaddressed seems not quite right either. We need a procedure for atonement that is both real …
The sexual assualt phenomenon isn’t ultimately about male chauvinist pervs. It’s about women seeking power and dispossessing and men in the workplace.

Visual artist Liam Gillick will discuss his art practice and his recent book published by Columbia University Press, entitled Industry and Intelligence: Contemporary Art Since 1820. The book takes a broad view of artistic creation from 1820 to today as Gillick follows the response of artists to incremental developments in science, politics, and technology. The great innovations and dislocations of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have their place in this timeline, but their traces are alternately amplified and diminished as Gillick moves through artistic reactions to liberalism, mass manufacturing, psychology, nuclear physics, automobiles, and a host of other advances. He intimately ties the origins of contemporary art to the social and technological adjustments of modern life, which artists struggled to incorporate truthfully into their works.
[Recorded November 15, 2017]
In 2012, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned that the US was at risk of a “cyber Pearl Harbor.” He pointed to rapid technological advancement in aggressor nations like China, Russia, and Iran, and cited security holes in American transportation, financial, and government systems.
Panetta’s statements came one year or more prior to state-sponsored attacks on the United States Office of Personnel Management, the State Department, Sony, the New York Times, Google, and many others. In the five years after Panetta’s dire comments, it has become clear that cyber threats are no longer just the work of teenagers in parents’ basements or even organized crime groups.
How is the US government using technology to protect its citizens—and prosecute hackers? How have policy initiatives in this area changed as hacks have intensified? How is the government working with the private sector to prevent attacks? And what does national cybersecurity policy look like under President Donald Trump?
Endgame Inc. CEO Nathaniel Fick joins us to consider these questions and more. Endgame is a next-generation endpoint security software company that automates the hunt for the most advanced cyber threats. He is also an operating partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, where he works with manage…
How to wake up early and not be tired: Learn how to make waking up early as painless as possible. We often have to wake up early at ungodly hours for work, school, or other responsibilities. In this video, I show you the lessons I learned from enduring challenging surgery rotations in medical school where I was waking up at 3:30AM on a regular basis. Along the way I learned to not only make it painless, but I also grew to like waking up early. That’s right, I grew to actually enjoy waking up early and I became a morning person. I’ll share with you the tips and tricks I learned on how to wake up early, sleep better, and be more productive in the process. Getting out of bed early in the morning doesn’t have to be a chore.

You could probably use some more confidence. Most people could. Here’s the 3 hacks I used to learn to love my weird voice, be comfortable with public speaking, and realize that I’m hilarious. This isn’t some inspiring “Everyone has a superhero in them” BS (besides you might be a bigger scumbag than you’re presently letting on) but actionable techniques to improve your confidence and sense of self-respect.
