Episode 62 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Former VP of Technology at Humaniq, Anton MozgovoyListen to the interview on iTunes, or Google Podcast, or watch on YouTube.In this episode Derek Bernard interviews Hacker Noon contributing author, Anton Mozgovoy, former VP of Technology at Humaniq. They discuss his prior project in which the blockchain was utilized and a coin created to bring financial power to the unbanked in Africa; at its peak, they were 500,000 members strong. They also get a bit into the challenges facing the growing generational divide being accelerated by the pace of advancing technology, as well as the global forces at play in the technology space.“There are actually close to 2 billion people on the planet that don’t have access to the banking system. They’re still using cash; they’re still trading with each other. It’s just that they’re not trading on a global scale. It means that they can send money [over] a distance.”“That’s just one simple use case if you’d applied to many different models out there. One of the biggest ones that blockchain people really refer to which is Metcalf’s Law that tells you that the power of the system is quadratically correlated to the number of people that are involved in it and then they like to apply it to: what would happen if we could get those 2 billion that are right now excluded and include them into this global eco-system.” — Anton MozgovoyP.S.

E61 - The Simulation Hypothesis: Exploring The Real with Riz Virk Episode 61 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Author/Entrepreneur Riz VirkListen to the interview on iTunes, or Google Podcast, or watch on YouTubeIn this episode Derek Bernard interviews Hacker Noon contributing author, Riz Virk to discuss his recently published book, The Simulation Hypothesis. In a world where the nature of our being in this place we call reality is so often taken for granted amidst the need to sustain the status quo, Riz explores the very real possibility (and in some schools of thought, a very real PROBability) that what we experience as “real” is in fact a simulation akin to a video game with it’s quests, achievements, and leveling up through our experiences.“What is Science and what is Religion? Both are attempts to try to find the truth about our physical reality and what is inside or outside of that reality and what the rules are. In the Simulation Hypothesis what science is actually discovering is what we in the video game world would call a physics engine.”“The Simulation Hypothesis is a model that we live in an information-based reality that’s being rendered for each of us may end up coming closer to explaining these things than a lot of other models that are out there.” — Riz VirkHost, production and music by Derek Bernard - https://haberdasherband.com/production https://hackernoon.com/ https://community.hackernoon.com/ https://contribute.hackernoon.com/ https://sponsor.hackernoon.com/ https://podcast.hackernoon.com/ https://twitter.com/hackernoon/ https://facebook.com/hackernoon/ P.S.

Ryan also goes over how LeafLink became the first cannabis company named on Forbes' 30 Under 30 list and Fast Company's Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise and more!“The use case, real quick, is if you are purchasing manager at a dispensary, typically you would text, email, phone call 30-50 brands every week or so to stock your shelves, now you can go on LeafLink, create a multi-brand cart, hit submit, and then those invoices get sent out to all those brands, and then they have some SaaS tools which help them then manage the life cycle of the order internally all the way through to delivery.”“I’m confident about going through these processes but a lot of it is being comfortable, being uncomfortable knowing you don’t know. Those phrases that are too often used, but it’s true. If you think you’ve got it all figured out, nobody wants to deal with people like that. Everyone is just like an old baby, pretty much like an old child”- Ryan G.

E59 - Breaking Into Tech with a Background In Liberal Arts with Lauren Maffeo of GetApp Episode 59 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Lauren Maffeo of GetAppListen to the interview on iTunes, or Google Podcast, or watch on YouTube.In this episode Derek Bernard interviews Lauren Maffeo of GetApp.  Lauren shares how she went from a Media Studies degree in Liberal Arts Media to Research Analyst of Technology at GetApp. “I majored in media studies in college pretty intent on going into journalism when I graduated. Unfortunately about halfway through college the recession hit and that was about the same time that ad spend was shifting from news organizations and news sites over to digital websites like Facebook and Google who now own an enormous total collective ad spend”“The business model for a lot of journalism outlets collapsed and what was a competitive industry before became very difficult to enter after the fact.”"In hindsight I think my media studies degree I thought at the time that those degrees were going to prepare me for a career as a reporter, but I actually think they were better preparation for what I do now as a research analyst because that kind of education primes you to look at a market, find gaps within that market, ask critical questions about the status quo and then give solutions for what to do differently. And I see a lot of parallels between my work as an analyst here and what I did academically, and so in hindsight that humanities education was great preparation for a career in tech.” — Lauren MaffeoHost, production, and music by Derek Bernard - https://haberdasherband.com/productionhttps://hackernoon.com/ https://community.hackernoon.com/ https://contribute.hackernoon.com/ https://sponsor.hackernoon.com/ https://podcast.hackernoon.com/ https://twitter.com/hackernoon/ https://facebook.com/hackernoon/ P.S.

Centralized, Decentralized, and Independent Media with David Smooke of Hacker Noon Episode 57 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with David Smooke of Hacker NoonSponsor:Alpaca - “Hack Financial Systems”Listen to the interview on iTunes, or Google Podcast, or watch on YouTube. In this episode Amber Cazzell interviews David Smooke of Hacker Noon.  David shares his insights and experiences taking a startup from conception to successful business in the digital publication space. As well as the decisions that motivated the move from Medium to developing Hacker Noon’s own platform. "The writing is on the wall that the next step for Hacker Noon is that it needs to be its own software.”“People telling their own stories. We want to level that up by like 100x, and, the rich people deciding what stories should trend, try and slow that down.” “Where we’re at in the landscape is we’re not trying to break news. We’re trying to get experts to amplify their voice. So when people are doing cool things in technology - research papers from Stanford for example - like that’s an interesting thing for us to republish and get very smart people who are building related things to read.”“I think that young entrepreneurs are better off publishing something small each day than trying to spend two weeks getting into BBC or CNN or whoever their target is. How do I reduce the barriers for me to get something out each day? And each day I can share more of my story and my ideas, and that will attract more people that are interested in those ideas too.”  — David SmookeProduction and music by Derek Bernard - https://haberdasherband.com/productionHost Amber Cazzell - https://www.cazzellreport.com/https://hackernoon.com/ https://community.hackernoon.com/ https://contribute.hackernoon.com/ https://sponsor.hackernoon.com/ https://podcast.hackernoon.com/ https://twitter.com/hackernoon/ https://facebook.com/hackernoon/ P.S.
