Making Time

Making Time

2019-05-1600:23:47

Nobody ever looked at an empty calendar and said, The best way to spend this time is by cramming it full of meetings! or got to work in the morning and thought, Today I'll spend hours on Facebook! Yet that's exactly what we do. Why? In a world where information refreshes endlessly and the workday feels like a race to react to other people's priorities faster, frazzled and distracted has become our default position. But what if the exhaustion of constant busyness wasn't mandatory? What if you could step off the hamster wheel and start taking control of your time and attention?  Today we explore John Zeratsky's and Jake Knapp's philosophy on Making Time. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Downsides of Data

The Downsides of Data

2019-04-2400:21:01

On today's show we talk with Clive Thompson, the author of "Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World." We discuss why Coders were such a focus for him, and given all the recent news about Facebook and our personal data, it wasn't hard to figure out why he has such an intense focus on them.  Data and surveillance are one of the biggest issues of our time. Product teams, product leaders, coders, designers, data scientists - these are the people that can help fix it. They are the people that can help move is in a better direction.   I hope you’re able to walk away from this today and feel comfortable that what you’re working on, what you’re bringing into the world, has a net positive impact for the greater good.

Well, we’ve taken quite a trip these past few weeks, haven’t we? This whole Blockland journey took us to quite a few places.  Starting outside of Cleveland, in places like Miami, Puerto Rico and Las Vegas. Then into the boardrooms of Cleveland’s civic elite and to the Convention Center where Blockland’s Solutions conference took shape. Then the luxury car dealership where the architect of this whole thing makes himself at home. But, where does this journey take us all next?  Not just for the listeners of this series,  but the people in Cleveland who are on this Blockland journey? We’re going to try to figure that out today on the finale of this special series on Blockland.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
