For our 20th anniversary we decided to talk about how to make ideas happen and get sh*t done. For this we look into examples of companies, and successful creative professionals, who have cracked the balance between the novelty of an idea and execution. Because so often, innovation is overrated and what counts the most is actually great execution. So, what are you waiting for?

Join us for a very special episode, in which Gerhard talks about his 4-week coding bootcamp experience and what it taught him about life, himself and learning. Afterwards we use Netflix’s latest documentary, “The Great Hack”, as a launchpad to dive into the dangers of technology getting out of our control, and our data as a human right. We finish this episode with a dystopian look into the future where Elon Musk’s latest startup - Neuralink - will reach the consumer mass market.Relax and tune in for some Futurish times with Pete and Gerhard!Articles discussed in this episode:* https://www.ted.com/talks/carole_cadwalladr_facebook_s_role_in_brexit_and_the_threat_to_democracy/* https://www.theverge.com/2019/7/16/20697123/elon-musk-neuralink-brain-reading-thread-robot--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/futurish/message
