"Don't have that anymore. At all. DJ code takes a stage or took the stage and now everything's still virtual or pre recorded, whatever. But we don't have that presence anymore, but it seems like Carl pay is moving or has already moved into that. So that was just, I mean, that's just basically it. I definitely feel like there's something to this because if I think about the personalities that run today's tech companies, like Jerry said, Tim Cook is who Tim Cook is, but I don't think people necessarily go, oh yeah, I can't generally, I can't wait to hear Tim Cook speak and see what he's going to say. What he's going to unveil, it's more like, I mean, he's there. He's a good speaker. He runs the company well. But he's not like you said he's not necessarily a commanding presence. And he's soft spoken. Right. He's a very different leader than Steve Jobs was. And that's fine. Apple today is very different from the apple of ten years ago. Yeah. And I think Carl pay is a really good thing for the Android side because there hasn't been a personality like that since one plus came around. And I think the excitement or R one plus initially was at least partially driven by what he and the rest of that team did and how they built the company. And I think he's very good at marketing things, right? He's very good at presenting something. And if nothing, that was what Steve Jobs is good at. He was good at being a visionary and presenting his ideas. Even if they weren't revolutionary ideas, even if it was just a new coat of paint on an old idea, it always came across as, oh man, that's Steve Jobs idea, you know? And it almost feels that way with Carl pay as well. It's like, oh, all right, this is interesting. Even if it's not really interesting, because it's coming from him, it's now interesting..

"Those apps are sucking as much data about you as they can. They're often deceptive, they're misleading. And they're horrible. Imagine what that experience would be without any protections in place. That's one thing you do not get if you download an application from outside of Google Play or the App Store if and when side loading is a thing on iOS. To me, those two things are very important. And I want everyone else to be aware of those two things. You know, even if they would prefer to get their application somewhere else, I just like people to be aware, data is I'm not going to say the words data industrial complex because that just tinfoil territory. I'm sorry, Tim Cook. But that's a bit outside of the realm of sanity here. But your data is a huge resource and Google and Amazon and partially Apple and Microsoft all make billions of dollars from your data. Don't think of it as worthless because it's not. Okay, I want to ask you one last question. And this, I think, will tie into our next topic. You said something at the top of your conversation that you had never seen Tim Cook be so, I guess, hyper or not hyper, what's the word I want to use? Just very upset. Animated. Yeah. Why did you feel that? And just in general with respect to how Tim Cook's demeanor is, what are your thoughts on that? Tim Cook normally is a very calm. I am not an iOS user. I have an iPhone here and an Apple watch just because I need to look at them sometimes. But I watch every Apple event because I enjoy watching Tim Cook speak. He's a calming presence. That was not what I saw. He was leaned into the microphone, hand motions, facial expressions, just very untim cook like whatsoever, and it was disturbing to me. He was more like Steve Jobs than he.

"Today i want to ask about hot desk getting free address space. There's so many different terms for it. You know when it first came out. When the pandemic i started. I had this initial gut reaction. Wow no one's gonna want to share desks. The free address concept is dead forever and of course you know the complete opposite is true. It's become even more critical part of our work strategies. And i completely understand it but i want to know what are what are some of the things that we get completely wrong when it comes to free address and what are some of the important things we need to consider if we wanna make it really work for us okay. So i'm going to call it free choice k. And i think that one of things. I get wrong as one of your choices to sit in the same spot every single day if you choose to do that because there are some people that are creatures of have it and they want that and they need that and so we need to acknowledge that i think another thing that people get wrong is the what are the best benefits of of going to free choice. Environments is that you don't need to have as many dedicated work points because they're being shared and so you have the ability to up your game and to have fewer work points but better work points and a variety. What drives me. Insane is when i see somebody that just puts in rows and rows of benching and you know same densification and says has choice. It's like there really isn't a choice because they're all exactly the same. What's the choice woohoo like. Wow you gave me you know turkey or turkey. Thanks you know i mean. That's that defeats the entire purpose entire purposes you should be able to have a greater variety in greater options and choices so that you can determine what is right for the task at hand and if every single one is exactly the same. He defeated the purpose right and. I think that it's important that you know it doesn't it doesn't mean it's a free for all and i think the other thing is that we need to zone things appropriately when most people talk about the fact that they hate open environments And there's a difference between open plan open virus when they say they dislike them is often because well. It's so loud and you know yet not if you zone. It appropriately and you don't put loud things right next to quiet things and so it's very simple. Exercise i to tell you. Eighty percent of people that eighties plans. That i look at. Don't get it right. And it's it's the essential critical element is making sure that their buzzy spaces and that they are really quiet spaces and you. You should be able to find a space that meet your needs. If they're all equally the same loud if they're all equally the same lightning number of the all the exact same furniture. Then that you've just give me the worst of everything. And i think when people say they don't like those which you don't like are poorly executed ones well executed ones. Believe me. once you've been in one you will never go back because you can find those spaces. That really are important to you. And a variety and choice it embeds movement and it encourages the right kinds of behaviors. And things like that and so you know it's it's not just saying all right free for all and i think that's the biggest mistake people make not doing it. It's it's almost like that difference that we talked about in designing people singular word.

"You can't be productive all day. I think that's one of the things we were trying to get to the office. Is this lifestyle office environment where you get to bring some of those moments from home into work. Yeah well there's there's a great adage that we should work like athletes so athletes whose job it is to be physically fit in to train. They trade in ninety minutes spurts because mentally and physically Beyond that tends to be a challenge so they tend to work in ninety minutes spurts than they take a break they refresh etc and then they get back to it if you are. If you try just to to drug continued doing and drudge on and on and on and on you get diminishing returns and so the notion that somebody could sit down at a computer and be productive for eight hours straight. Even three or four hours straight is a misnomer and what we really need to do is take mental breaks Get a fresh perspective. Walk mean they say the best thing that you can do for yourself is to take a ten minute. Walk down a few flights upstairs at you know for ten minutes every hour. That's actually better than going to the gym and having a vigorous workout in the morning because it kind of keeps your body active throughout the day. And you know the second you sit down and your body just goes into this lull. I mean you've seen the movie. Wally right. We are dangerously close to that right now and that was done as a joke and said don't ever get to this but you know how close we are to that right now. We're really really close to that right now. It's interesting to think about this work like an athlete. I'm really kinda. Got my mind spinning. Just that notion a if we think about that how how could space be designed differently with that in mind thinking about these kind of ninety minute episodes and then these things that happen in between these rechargeable moments to like okay. You know all of a sudden we're programming now for these for these recharge moments you know. I know we can all be outside. If you're in minnesota you know you're you're walking. Options are fairly limited. But i mean if you have a large enough space could you. Could you start to build in sort of movement and i'm imagining different place of yet. Well first of all. Let's stop designing space. Like people product plants and second of all. Let's stop expecting the most inflexible thing in an environment to be the most flexible so that the most flexible thing in an environment the people can be as legally they wanna be. Can't we need to rethink this. And we need to design to. The people are getting up and active. Moving i mean i can designed space that you will not want to stay in for the now our and i don't mean it'd be uglier hideous but you think about it mean like mcdonald's designs the chairs you're comfortable for fifteen minutes and then it starts to hurt. He get up and move right. You know you don't think. Wow i'm leaving because this chair. It's just oh i need to get up and move right. We're starbucks the exact opposite. You sink into a chair. You can never get back out of it right because you know..

"Made it out. You know and by the way you know whose heads they don't die in. Oh you just set me up for this. So perfectly greg at this do you know what. A high percentage of entrepreneurs are neuro diverse like. Unbelievable i mean you think about like like elon. Musk and you know just came out with you. Know and said in charity ass burgers or richard branson or several people that tend to be neuro diverse. Tend to be out of the box thinkers. They tend to just kind of big picture they can really focus in. They can cut through all the stuff and be very singularly focused or or think about things that the rest of us will say. That's a little crazy man. I'm not gonna do that. I'm going to dial it back a little bit right. And so a lot of entrepreneurs tend to be narrow diverse. Because that's one of the superpowers but it's one of the things that is a real benefit For people that are person and you know. I think the other thing that really drives innovation is diversity. And so this is one of the reasons not only. Because it's the right thing to do. And it's good for your. Es g reports but it has shown that more diverse groups will actually eighty-eight and innovate faster. Because you're not surrounding yourself with people that think just like you and coming down singular path. You're breaking down silos. You're bringing in fresh ideas. You're challenging the status quo and you're seen something in a new light and that's part of what's driving this massive need for diversifying the workforce. Yeah i can especially in the profession of design that thrives on creativity i. I know we're we're doing that. Exact same thing. We're reaching even at the grade school and high school level. How do we begin to immerse a more diverse group of students into the field of design. I don't think we're the only profession that that struggles from this. You know i mean it's it's probably happened. It engineering. there's a lot of places where diversity has been a struggle. well i'll i will It is absolutely and the diversity of thinking and just the way that we think. And so i think you know the mother of five kids..

"There are a lot of reasons you would want to. I mean there are a lot of people that working from home is not for everybody. There's a lot of people that really hate it. They missed the energy. But you know it's interesting though because we did a study in two thousand sixteen about co working and just about remote work and what we found then and we read it some of the analysis and it's bearing out to be true now is well. What we found are the people are the most disengaged are the people that are never together. They always work remotely but they're part of a team right and partly. It's because you art your your social capital might be eroding a little bit. Your interactions even though you might be on zoom with somebody there. It's a different type of interaction that you have with somebody on zoom. It's not as personable and for a lot of individuals. You don't feel that same level of commitment and you might miss out on some of those things or some of the cultural things that are happening or just the vibe of being there and the casual discussions and people you may never be on zoom call with but if you're in the office you might be having conversations with okay so we found that those tend to be the people that are the least engaged the second group of people that is the least gauge. Are the people that are always in the office. Because quite frankly i think in many cases they take it for granted and when they're in the office because they have no choice. They begrudge the fact that they don't have any choice and they are trying to hide from other people have the time so they can do that. Heads down work right and they're like well. I'm here everyday. So i don't need to make an effort to see you actually trying to make an effort to get away from you so i can be on this call and not disturb right..

"All of these issues that we started to realize you know if the employees aren't engaged or effective than the work product or whatever it is going to suffer and the environment has an impact on that by the way it wasn't that long ago that we had to convince people that the work place did have an impact on the individuals in it and can it could influence that and so this whole notion of culture and human center design and Really focusing on the human experience the employee experience and humanity really is not that old. And i don't wanna say that before we didn't care about that but that wasn't necessarily the focus and so now the focus has shifted significantly towards that end and i would almost say in the latest. You know post pandemic or in the stage of the pandemic. We're not really post. It's it's gone into hyper drive. And i think people are taking it to an extreme to some degree. And i get a lot of grief for saying that but quite frankly doug i mean right now. Employees are very empowered and we as an industry has some really dumb questions. We asked people what they wanted. We didn't ask whether it was right for the business or whether it helped. Secure the culture. It was a better thing we asked what people wanted and they told us. And i think what we are seeing. Is this gap between what the c. Suite is trying to do. And what the workforce is saying they want and everybody's putting the onus on the c. suite saying you're out of touch well pushed back on that a little bit and say that the c. suite is worried about the resistance and the resiliency and the durability of the company and by the way if the company isn't succeeding and isn't thriving. Then nobody's going to be successful. So let's just take apple. For example they have never really encouraged people working remotely. Steve jobs was one of the biggest proponents of people being in a room together. That agile methodology people kind of becoming in sync with each other so much so he built one of the most expensive buildings on the planet to support and enable that in thrive and build that culture and that work style and that innovation that fail fast mentality and now there's this massive or for talent a lot of tech companies. You're saying you can work remotely forever. Which by the way. I i'm going to call bs on. Because i think it goes exactly against their entire culture and how they innovate rapidly etc. But they've done it and so now they all have to kind of say what people wanna hear an apple came out and said we want to come back. We're going to be some flexibility. We've never really done before. We're going to give you some flexibility. But that wasn't good enough for a lot of people they push back even further and i are. We saying steve jobs was wrong. That people can innovate just as fast being scattered to the and we don't have to..

"Yes and as people. We don't all dress the same. You would be hard pressed to go into almost any office and find two people that are dressed exactly the same now. Granted you do have people that dress. The same every single day donald trump's and the the barack obama when thing they had in common is they kind of had a uniform because they didn't want to think about what they had to wear and so they were the same thing literally every single day. Different version different suit. Okay but look was exactly the same but as in our wardrobe were very diverse. And if i were to say to you hey can you pick out a wardrobe for somebody you would be like. Yes but like man or woman. What age are they. What are they do. Where do they live like. I can't. I can't do that but yet. That's what we do with the workplace designer workplace for somebody right and we just generic everything everything generic and so it comes down. What we're doing in space is the equivalent of making everybody where a size ten gray unit hard regardless of your age. Your sex your gender or your size like everybody has to wear the same suit and it doesn't fit and so we have to learn from other parts in our lives. Where we highly customize everything why does the workplace have to be so rigid so generic and so standardized to the point that it basically doesn't meet anybody's needs at all that's where we were at. We need to totally rethink that. I think some of what has fueled that has been the notion of what a professional is. You know like you become a work robot when you get to the office you know. And then you know you're supposed to leave your bubbly fund personality behind it just got so darn serious too. And it's like there wasn't there was this kind of sanitation of who you are in the history of office culture. What that about it. That was accepted. I mean think about it. You know d modern office was really created back in the early nineteen hundreds when there was kind of this warehousing mentality and you had rows and rows of desks of people doing repetitive task. All day long. And i did one thing that i passed it on to somebody..

Elizabeth Holmes, From Blood Test to Facing Prison
"In twenty thirteen. Abc news correspondent. Rebecca jarvis was working on a story about high medical costs and we featured a woman who was spending a lot of money on blood tests and after that story ran. Rebecca got a pitch about a new start-up. Hey there's this blood testing company theranos and they can save your viewers a lot of money. She checked it out but couldn't get anyone to independently verify that these theranos blood tests which only used a finger prick and not a traditional vein. Stick we're actually going to be better and cheaper. It was one of those things where This just it. It doesn't fully lineup. it doesn't live up to what it would take for me to even consider covering it as a solution. So rebecca did news story but other reporters did and then shortly after that pitch elizabeth started showing up in all of these places and was very much a celebrity. Elizabeth was elizabeth homes stanford dropout their nose founder and ceo millionaire superstar and media. Darling elizabeth homes left stanford university at the age of nineteen to build a company.

It is so thin but had the had the stainless steel back on the original original ipod nano and then of course iterative over time but the original. I apply now. Got all scratched up on back. People got upset and it was one of the ones where the battery was. Dying fairly rapidly because they made it so thin back when i had to repair shop going every we will come in with their ipod.

"So you don't feel like doing follow follow toucher sonia. A chopra's advice part of her each school community and do much. But if the things you like to do and do more of those great question on lead yes yeah and i. I have to kind of second your thought process about having gender practice that also does Cosmetic because you know as a marketing president sometimes doctors come to me for advice. And i think it depends also on your goal like for example. If you want to celebrate practice it's going to be easier to sell a gender practice because somebody else can take it and run with it because people need cleanings. They need feelings it. It's something that can be systematising. Scale cosmetic can be scared but people are coming for that particular doctor. So you know. Let's say if you're retiring the value of the practice. If it's a pure comedy practice won't be that high because it's all the good is tight you so so i think it comes down to kind of you know. I think he's right. You know what goes on. You know where you're trying to get to sure you bet great question. I love that as the third question. Getty the. I love this question. Clearly steve jobs created like i second that carry. How can i do that in. My dental. practice Well thank you for that question because we talked about a little bit into coaching nation segment. But i hope every one of our listeners is on a path to create a legacy. Now what does that mean. was agassi me. to me it means that your impact goes on long after you've left and clearly seemed apps as meant that definition is impact is still being held today in so many circles in many many many many ways. So it's really about creating a practice that lives beyond your time as the owner of that practice. It it's a it's a legacy in your community. It's a legacy patient base. It's a legacy of empathy. It's a legacy of compassion. It's legacy passion helbig passionate about helping your patients have the best possible world health And so how can you apply that. I think you need to answer those questions that i provided in the coaching is What would need to change for you to begin to create legacy and maybe maybe just hypothetically it's your relationship with the dental insurance companies. Maybe that's what needs to change pregnant. Ause there for her. Maybe that's the part that sucks all the joy out of your practice. Maybe that's the part that has so many consequences that don't like they don't have enough time to spend with patients. I can't use the quality lab. That i wanna use. I can't pay my team members what they're worth and maybe that one decision search the domino falling dominoes full. Elvis said big started coming into focus. But what would need to change just systematically start to make those changes. And i'll i'll allow i'll i'll take a selfish a promotion for just a minute if you like help with that. I'd love to be your coach absolutely and by the beginning. Wanted thing some i am. I think the question about legacies. I think he he realized the you mentioned in your coaching and action. That we all that the older beget right and he realized with this kansas guy you know. But when he was giving that speech at stanford he has gone through some cancer treatment. That very moment. He thought he's going to live so he was very optimistic but still he realized his days a limited on this and I mean in that context. You know you you want on the day you're going to die. You want to look back and say you know what i think. I did a good job in my life. And it's getting this life and You know i. I i did my best and i i you know autographs night so all of our listeners served that they deserve to to create a legacy so out what what are the impediments. What are the hurdles. What are the roadblocks. Get it if it get rid of and then systematically step-by-step Get rid of those So there's my advice. Recruitment answer the question. What need to change for you to begin to create legacy getty rival if you allowed yourself. The luxury of time to think about that. You'll be able to answer that in a specific reference to you right now. Today you might get include a link to a coaching strategy meeting with you in case somebody's really serious about this and they won't have a conversation with collapse. I would love that. That's a zoom meeting will meet. Virtually my goal net. Meeting is to learn more about your practice. Learn more about you which bulls are and then share with you are coaching. Looks like and see if that might be a good fit. I'd love the. I did that myself. I don't designate. I don't delegate that to someone else. I do that myself. I'd love the opportunity to meet with any of our listeners online. If that was we'll put a lincoln they're just clicked. It's online schedule. You just pick the time and date of words for you. And i'd look. I'd love to be thank you. Let me ask the last question. It seems like dentistry doesn't have much room for creativity. Frankly it's a bit of a conformist profession. How can they exercise my creativity within this profession. What a great. What a true observation at a great question. Dentistry is a bit conformist. Isn't it because it's based on science right. I would actually disagrees in in some ways that while scientists science There's still plenty of room for creativity and your practice. I mean to start out with your dream right your legacy thinking about legacy and what you want to be. That's a related. Creativity legacy created with your vision. Be creative if you're a with with your legacy be creative with the humanistic side of your practice. There's plenty of room for credit. You know what. I mean by the humanistic site. Behavioral side is where we truly have a relationship driven practice. We know our patients names. We know their spouses as we know their kids needs. We know the dog's name. We know their hobbies. We know their interest. We know the important dates. We know where they went to school. We.

But what he meant by that of course is that You know it's kind of a trick question. Are you treating teeth or you're treating people will. The truth is treaty bolt on on a clinical of your teeth. But um let's much more significant level. You're treating a human being and that was nine hundred eighty two. I was early in my career. That's that's something that has lived with me and burns bright he. He ignited a passion in my career that burns brightly today. So how can you apply to demonstrate Constantly be curious. Take courses meet mentors. Reach out to people that you respect. You'd never know where that's going allegiance. You're never gonna know where that's gonna change it all right. His second point is all about find what you loved. Find what you love. So let me read a part of that that i that i have up on my screen. You're work is going to fill. This is from steve jobs. In this from the commencement address. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life in the only way to be truly satisfied is do what you believe is great work and the only way to do great work is to love what you do if you haven't found it yet keep looking. Don't settle while how can that apply industry near any ways. The truth is i believe every dentist at some point in their career had a passion for this profession at some point. This is what they wanted to do. You don't accidentally become a dentist. There is nothing accidental about its intention in its pursuit. You got your acceptance letter to dental school just how How much joy you felt maybe up until that point in your life. That was the happiest day in your life.

If you're at a point where if you ask the question do you truly love which do it and the answer is not quite not quite Than what i would encourage you to do is answer this question. If your practice was as good as it could be. What would that look and hope that if you took the time to think about it you can answer that question and then proceed to make the changes to make it that way you know. We live in an amazing country here in the united states where we have freedom of choice you have the freedom design your practice any way you like now. It may take a process to get. There may not happen overnight. But you know you're were s. Steve said your work is to fill a large part of your life. We all the way to be satisfied as to truly love which you do.

"Cotton to get cold enough. And you will think that all of the tape that you test don't feel cold and are therefore chronic instead use a condom pellett and a pair of college players with your endo is to do that cole test to make sure that that cotton pellet gets really steamy with that cold spray step three. Make sure you prepare your patients for the cold test. I know it's not a fun test to perform and to many people. It can be really sensitive so gift your patients a little warning described the test and what to expect from the tests and explain what you're looking for and then do the test so that they can be a little more prepared. It's really important not to be afraid to do the coal test because you don't want to hurt your patients if you give them a little warning they will understand what you are trying to do and they will honestly thank you for it and you will get the real response from your patients that will get you the right diagnosis in the end. So don't be afraid to do the test. Do it to get the right information and understand that it may make your patient on little uncomfortable for a minute step for always start your cold test with a tooth in another quadrant and if you can find it too that is clinically similar to the two in question for example if two number three is a suspect to and it has a crown tooth find another i miller in any other quarter with the crown and use that tooth as your control too so you can test. What is normal for that patient if you do the coal tests onto number fourteen and they basically levitated a chair when you place the cold on the tube then you know that their teeth are pretty sensitive but that is their normal response once you assess what is normal for that patient. You can start testing in the problem. Quadra remember this will be different for every patient that you treat and you will start to recognize that. The beauty of the cold test is really in the interpretation of that test for that patient sitting in front of you understanding. Your diagnosis is the most important step and everything that we do as dentists and when we have the right diagnosis it will guide us and how we anesthetize or patients because vital teeth may need more anesthesia than chronic tooth. It will also help us. Guide us when we treat our patients because we will need to do different things to vital to versus under chronic tooth an order to get our patients out of pain and to keep them out of pain we will also be able to know better how to medicate our patients because antibiotics will have very little effect on vital tooth but could have a pretty big impact on an aquatic to and last not least it will also help us follow up on her patients. A vital will sometimes have totally different postoperative civil than an aquatic too. So i hope you see the importance in this and letting your diagnosis guide you in all of these aspects of treatment so in summary. Make sure you use your whole tests anytime. You're looking for public diagnosis or schedule. That crown use the cotton pellet instead of your cotton swab to do that. Cole tests and get a baseline testing a similar tooth in a different quadrant and finally don't shy away from the cold test. Let your patient note that they may be a little sensitive and let your test guys you in getting the patient the best outcome inexperience believe it or not this little shift in your virtual will help your patients.

How to Deal With A Lack of Passion in Your Job and Life
"If there is one problem that one on one coaching clients come to me with more than anything else. It's this problem. I don't feel passionate about my work. Or i want my work to be my passion. How do i do that. And we hear it all the time. Right this quote. From steve jobs is just one way but we hear all the time. If you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life and other things like that and that is a lovely idea. That's a lovely experiment and if it's what you're striving for men make it your goal i mean go for it but hear me out in this episode because i don't think that that necessarily has to be the case so in the united states we've talked about this in prior episodes where we've talked about role gulf meant this idea that our identity gets very wrapped up in our title and in the job that we do this particularly strong or something that happens in the united states. We tend to identify with our work and with our title more than other countries and other cultures. Do we also work really long hours. And so when you put those two things together the role that our workplace in our identity and also the amount of our life that are work takes up. We can almost forget that there's life outside of work or that there's opportunity to be passionate outside of work. We looked to this lack of passion in our lives and the first place we think to get it is from our job but is that the only place and that's the question. I wanna pose. I'm not saying that it's impossible. No one can be passionate about their work. That's definitely not true. But if you are not passionate about your job and there are real barriers in place for you to make a change or you're not even sure what direction to go just yet. I would offer that asking yourself the question of how might i be able to feel that passion or express that passion in ways outside of my job is a much more near term realistic way to get that passion.

I thought it but not a lot of other people thought it. They didn't think we could get this and we thought and all of a sudden, Remember what happened to Apple? They had Steve Jobs. Yes, I did everything and then they fired and and the whole company went to shit. I don't need to bring out and they had to bring them back and all of a sudden they started doing iPhones and iPads and cancer everything was going very strongly when he came back.

"steve jobs" Discussed on Make Yourself a Little Bit Famous
"Hi i'm penny house. Lamb today in the podcast amazing speaker. Yeah i just want about speech steve jobs. We never saw his first hawk. Find your feet and begin to put one step in front of the a lovely success story this week so as working yesterday with a group of people to help them increase their visibility. She's boring way of saying. Make yourself a little bit famous. So they're all employees and they're just entering the leadership space whatever that means but basically there emerging talent to the the of canes learn and do the next thing so some of the group do panel discussions some of group do video may king some of the group do speaking at the front of the room and for some of them. It's the first time or it's a recovery time. It's a repair time to over an experience that they had in the past so one of the group she chose to do the speaking at the presenting. The task is to present three to five minutes of some stories. That are interesting. Some ideas a bit of value. The audience a bit of a take home and not to spend too long thinking about it. Because that's the dangerous we over. Think about things. This is just a safe space to have ago. And she basically had had one experience of speaking a big conference and first time as a speaker. Which obviously you could see that coming down. The track couldn't what was going to happen there. Oh inova spokane before. Let's bob you on a big stage a big conference on day three of this massive conference with loads of industry people around. You see how you get on. I mean hats off to is. She said yes to it and go home with. She said that the speaker before her was this really great motivational speaker. Who had everyone upon this their chairs so up up on murphy clapping. He was roaming the stage with no notes. He was awesome and then she was going on and she said she hadn't been any practice breast toll. She kind of just spoke into the the habrush. Doing it tokens. You have in the mirror and you bedroom pretending that you've got an audience in front of you. Not quite the same so really. She should have got some colleagues together all offered to run as a quick talk know during the meeting or whatever just to get some practice of bay front of an audience. Anyway that she is. She didn't fail but she didn't enjoy the experience. As you'd expect it could have predicted that can so there. She was in my training session yesterday. Ready to have another go good for her and she says she did it and she recognized something i mentioned basically a drops into the the the cia in the morning about how we never see. The people like the motivational speaker. She was talking about do that. I talk so we never saw steve jobs do his first talk in the founder of apple. Amazing artor black polo neck on is announcing new products. Big cult following amazing speaker. Yeah i just want to build. Speed like steve jobs. Yeah okay good. We never saw his first talk another speaker. May you never saw medium. i i talk. It was dreadful. It really was. It was dreadful. Nervous did not say had no structure talking about really didn't know what i wanted. The audience to to hear about it was just dreadful. I had red rash on my chest and probably a noticeable. But i could fail it. Big time was one of those twitches on your face that you get when you stressed or tired or analyzed or whatever and it was going like the clippers in my left eye just twitching so i felt like a twitchy nervous rashy wreck really when i was doing my talk subsequent talks after that. Actually it didn't. It didn't go away just after the first time. So the point of what i'm saying is lean into the subject and learn your craft yourself in the process of it and you're not going to be arriving on stage or born into the world knowing how to pull over leave as in the strings and the emotional stuff and the the practical staff and you know what else to deliver and land messages. Like wow. you're not gonna get a standing ovation on your first talk. No matter how much you might want that but don't be cowed by that factor. Either when you've you've done first thing find your fate and begin to put one step in front of the other. That's all you can expect of yourself and that's it really. I'm so delighted for this group of people who got a chance to have ago because we don't do it and that's really important to find your feet so don't be judgy only soft and be harsh. Don't be judgy and don't agree to speak at big conferences when you've never spoken before that's by advice there. Thanks been listening..
Recapping a Crazy Week in Crypto History
"Let's start however with a quick review of the stories that i covered in detail. The banner headline was of course elon. Musk and his fickle strange relationship with bitcoin. Dosier in public media. I've discussed this extensively this week. Saw only add this here. There is a conversation to be had about the power of audience in other words. This story isn't just about his whims and vagaries. It's also about how power is met. It out via social media alone has a bigger microphone. Nearly any corporate officer in history. Sure steve jobs could have called the press conference. That had every outlet there but ilan can think of something stupid while taking a dump and push billions from markets. In less. Than a minute of typing. There is a larger question. Here that once again comes back to unresolved issues of social media in society. By the way. If you're interested in this. I've got an exciting joint show with someone that i think you'll really enjoy to explore it more in depth than the next couple of weeks. I also covered the finance fudd around the department of justice in irs investigation first and probably most importantly the headline of the bloomberg p. seems to have been a little fearmongering considering that the sub-headline made it clear that binds has been accused of no wrongdoing. My point in my coverage however was that basically whatever the outcome is probably a net positive for the industry. The worst case scenario is some major set of accusations and wrongdoing and severe punishment which would be a confidence hit in the short term but in the longer term would clear space for better actors to arise in the middle would be some slap on the wrist. This would be bullish both for not having been worse as well as for most likely articulating what regulators expect at a foreign exchanges when it comes to preventing access by us citizens.

The Art of Business Wars: Positioning
"Second. Happy friday everyone all week. We've been bringing you stories based on the lessons in our new book. The art of business wars which comes out on april thirteenth. If you haven't heard the episodes we earlier this week you may want to check those out. I today's lesson from the art of business. Wars is positioning. The skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible. That's pro tip. From chinese general sons in his text the art of war and in war as in business if a company can find advantageous position in the market and stake. It's claim their success will likely follow someone who knew a thing or two about successful market positioning the late apple. Founder steve jobs in nineteen ninety two after jobs had been pushed out of his own company. Apple rolled out the newton message pad sort of virtual calendar and address book. Remember that the newton gained a devoted following but when jobs returned to the helm of apple in nineteen ninety seven. He promptly cancelled the product. Why well during the years jobs was away from the company apple had lost. Its distinct position. Apple had initially succeeded because it positioned itself as a maker of personal computers not business machines like then dominant brand ibm but with jobs away. Apple put out product after product until it wasn't entirely obvious what the company actually stood for when he returned jobs knew he had to make sacrifices to clarify apple's position as a maker of personal computers so he slashed several products until only four computers remained suddenly apple had regained its focus accompanies position must evolve with the market however jobs knew that by two thousand one apple was ready to take more risks. So jobs introduced the ipod and then six years later. I bet you know where this is going. The iphone came on the scene and it became a cultural phenomenon. Now the success of the iphone wasn't a given especially because research in motion already had pocket-sized communication device in the market. Remember the blackberry. Or i am had successfully positioned that device not as one that would be wildly popular with everyday consumers but as a necessary product for business people the only one secure
Faster Horses & Product Myths
"Always been annoyed with the quotes from the steve. Jobs is and the henry. Ford's where it's like if i don't do focus groups if i'd asked people what they wanted they would have wanted a faster horse and instead i get built on a car. Here's why those quotes number one. It's unlikely you have the resources. That steve jobs and henry ford did by the time. Steve jobs was. I think it was twenty. Who's worth a million by. The time is twenty one hundred ten million. By the time he's twenty two is worth one hundred million and a lot of that was on the back of this incredible once in a generation. Invention that steve wozniak had designed it was called the apple one. And that's what made them. They have all this amazingness. After that steve jobs then proceeded to launch failure after failure from the lisa to the original macintosh which eventually became successful but it was a train wreck when it launched to the apple. Newton fail fail fail. Who's running the company so poorly that he got kicked out the board voted him out and you know he went off. And if you read the book. I think it's called becoming steve jobs. It's about the a lot about the interim years and how he matured during that time and then he did figure himself out when he came back to apple in the late nineties he was amazing and he was an amazing not only business product person before that yes. He was a good marketer. Yes he could talk yes. He could stare at people and convince them to do things that they were. You know maybe shouldn't do. They were scared to do he could. You'd say it's either persuasion intimidation or something. But he was not a great product person in the early days was wozniak and obviously jobs learned this and did become that overtime. All that said these luminaries are quoted. In and i feel like it's this myth of she. Should you listen to your customers or not. There's an in-between. Because when henry ford says that people would have asked for a faster horse. That's like saying i asked my customers what they wanted and they said that they want a button in my interface to download and then make changes and re uploaded. So are you going to give them exactly what they want. Or you going to put your product hat on. Maybe your vision hat your founder gut feel hat and say that's a dumb idea. There's a ways your way to do that. Why don't i just build a lightweight kind of accel manipulation widget within my app and on. This is just an example. I'm saying that's the best the better or the worst way to do it. But if you're product person you never take customer suggestions and build what they want because you wind up with crap software you wind up with a million settings you wind up with terrible. You actually end up a terrible. Ui because customers are not product people. They're not experts for the most part in general so when henry ford says they were asking a faster horse i put on my visionary my product tat and i think what are they act. What's the job done. Well they want something that moves faster than a horse so what can do that. We'll trains can do that these days. Right locomotives in what is one thousand five hundred. Ten locomotives can do that. So can we build a locomotive that run something. that's not on rails right that's the type of innovation that that ford put into place so to take his quote and to act like don't listen to customers at all. I think a grave misuse of that as product people and that instead of taking exactly verbatim literally what customer said and building that into your app. There's a balance here right. It's that product vision that you have. Where do i want my product to go. And how do i want to feel and how they want it to be used to build in it and not build in it. What i wanted to become not become because i tell you. In the early days of drip people want us to build affiliate management software into it because a competitor had it. They want us to build shopping cart into landing pages where all these things that other competitors had built and we're opinionated enough that we said our opinion is that we should integrate with best of breed and so we have thirty five tier one integrations by the time we were you know year and a half two years into drip and that was the approach. We take that was our opinionated stance on whether we're going to make this thing and all in one. i'll say monstrosity. All in windsor monstrosities. But that's what i felt like is that would be a worst in class and we'd have five tools built into one or we could be best in class marketing automation and integrate with the other. Best in class. So that's my stance on this whole henry ford quote and i'd love to hear your thoughts. Maybe i'll tweet this out to get a conversation going because it kills me every time someone says it. It rubs me the wrong way that it's it's touted as this this big grandiose thing of. I'm such an innovator look at me and it's like no you actually. Yes you did you invent head and you did. Innovate in the way that you solved customers problems but then don't go back and say i didn't do anything customers we're asking for because they were actually asking for a car they just didn't know it.
Jeff Bezos steps down as Amazon CEO
"Amazon's founder and ceo. Jeff bezos announced this week that he is going to become executive chairman of the company and the new ceo will be andy jesse. Currently the head of amazon web services amazon is twenty six years old. and obviously it's massive and has ideas to do everything from package delivery to television production too smart. Microwaves to artificial intelligence. And obviously it's huge an incredibly profitable cloud business amazon's ambition and reach is legendary but with betas taking on a new role. Could that change. It's a topic for quality assurance where we take a look at big tech story. Stone is a senior executive editor for bloomberg. He's written one book on amazon and has another one coming out this spring. I asked him if amazon might start to focus more on the gold. Mine of its cloud amazon actually has kind of two of those gold mines. You mentioned one. aws the other one is advertising. And it's been this kind of quiet force gobbling up market share in online advertising. And you know for the last ten years. It's investors have been wholly on board with amazon not returning that money to shareholders not showing you know a big profit although they've been getting better in that regard but investing and inventing new things to the extent that its shareholders continue to allow that to happen amazon. Continue to do it now. jeff bezos. He's going to continue to be active in the big decisions and working on new projects and executive chairman. There's a role that carry some meaning. He's still going to be andy jesse's boss in many ways andy jesse seems formed in the same mould as jeff visas and yet. There are real critiques about the company's treatment of its workers it's wages its approach to climate not even with and i trust. Do we have a sense of whether jazzy might be more responsive to some of those critiques. Right are we going to see a softer gentler amazon. Like a tim. Cook to steve jobs. That's right and in some respects. Maybe chelsea's is while he's sort of cleaved from jeff bezos rib and a lot of ways. He's also different. I mean he's more politically active at the same time amazon. Aws under andy. Jesse sold its face. Recognition software to law enforcement agencies and only paused for a year. When the blm movement became very loud and vocal. So i don't suspect it. I much change particularly with a very loud voice on the board with a lot of sentiment changing. Is that not a good thing. Should jesse be more open to change. Will shareholders have less tolerance for business. As usual i think they're gonna have to start listening more to the voices not only of their frontline employees in the warehouses who do have some real grievances particularly amid the pandemic but to the contractor workforce almost kind of invisible constituency who tries to amazon vans and drop software packages like a lot of companies amazon kind of indulgence itself of this contractor workforce where the healthcare protections fifteen dollar an hour wage protections don't exist and so i think yes i mean they're going to increasingly if they want to get to that next level of growth. Have to listen to some of these concerns brad. Stone is a senior executive editor for bloomberg
You Are What You Subscribe To
"All right. So i wanted to share with you something that my wife. Carrie ann i did the first At the beginning of the new year. And that's We sat down and we reviewed everything that both of us were subscribed to and we sorta did a purge and a respectful and together. We said you know what kind of content do we love. What do we want to learn This year what should we stop consuming. What should we start consuming and we did this very thoughtful very proactively over the course of about an hour and the high here for me is. I think it's important to be very very careful. Whose ideas that you let into your brain you know. We only have so much brain shelf space and we only have so much. Time to consume books podcasts Whatever the case you tubes whatever we like to consume and so being very thoughtful about what we put into our brain is actually a very important thing and i think there we put some shit in our head. That can hurt us pretty badly. You know if you're a longtime listener you know Have no love for the hustle stars. And i think they've done more damage to entrepreneurs and marketers than any recent group in history For a simple example you. I've heard hustle porn star. Say hustles the most important word the english language. Well i've also heard hustle porn star. Say no one ever worked himself to death well in japan they have a word for it. It's called karoshi and it translates into death by overwork. So nonstop hustling for twenty. Five years is probably not what you want to do. In addition even worse maybe is. You can hustle all you want but there's a difference between hard work and smart work hamsters hustle in their wheels to and they don't get anywhere. So what's your hustling about matters. And if you're a regular listener you know that i believe that Legends become known for a niche. That they own. So if you're hustling to design your own category that's one thing. If you're hustling trying to compete with an entrenched category king. You're gonna be in for a world of pain and yet millions and millions of business people still consume the stupidities of these hustle porn stars every day and the marketing and entrepreneur. World is stuffed with stupid ideas. Here's another example that drives me nuts minimum viable product. Why is this a good idea. Who the fuck said we. The first thing we deliver to the world should be something called a minimum viable product. It should be called a product. You fucking think is legendary and awesome and you wanna share with the whole world nother just dumb dumb dumb. I could go on with a very long list of very dumb ideas that are marketed to marketers and entrepreneurs all the time the bottom line is be very thoughtful about what you put in your brain because what you put in your brain is what you get out of your life now. Personally i like to go back to some of. Oj's peter drucker can touch him he. He's the original management thinker. His book the effect of executive changed my life by way of example. David ogilvy david. Ogilvy david ogilvy. If you're an entrepreneur if you're a marketer you're not a student of david ogilvy get on it. I go back and look at it all the time. Another one you might love in a similar vein is george lois. He sort of the punk rock version of david. Ogilvy check him out also. Of course the geez of positioning. Our reese and jack trout the so i love to go back and look at a lot of the original masters now some of the newer things that i love checking out is Check out a master class. This is incredible way to learn how to do to be taught writing by malcolm gladwin by way of example or taught how to do a three point shot by None other than steph curry. They have legendary people in many many different domains teaching their skills. It's an incredible product. Love masterclass podcast. You might wanna check out and this is not an extensive example or an extensive list. It's just an example of a few. That i like One of the jeez of marketing podcasts. Marketing over coffee by my buddy john wall and his partner. Christopher penn legendary Venture capitalists mike. Maples junior. his podcast is called. Starting greatness insanely great. Another legendary entrepreneur. Podcast is called no bowl and it's created by my buddies paul martinez and randy comas. And it features that teaching of the legendary bill campbell. Who was none other than steve. Jobs is coach if you're in the b. two b. world couple of podcasts. I love dave gerhardt's b. to b. marketing leaders. Podcast check it out. G. is emerging og. He's awesome My buddy brian burns has the One of the top sales podcast for b. two b. people be to be revenue leadership and the brutal truth about sales and selling brian burns. Check him out. And then the other one i like on sort of the lead gen funnel management Get leads enclosed shit online in the more beat. A sea world is russell brunson and he's got a whole series of podcasts and books most of them have the word secrets in them. Checkout marketing secrets podcasts. And he's all about hooks and offers and driving traffic and all of that stuff so those are just a couple to think about but most importantly i'm encouraging you to sit down and ask yourself a couple of key questions. What the kind of content i love. What do i most want to learn in the next twelve months. What should i stop consuming. What should i start consuming and remember. Be very careful whose ideas you let into your head because your thoughts become your actions your actions become your outcomes and your outcomes become your
Digital identity in the UK in 2021 with TrueProfile.ios Rene Seifert
"Thank you for joining today. I be sought in this new year. Twenty twenty one. We're going to discuss. Especially now they did identity in the uk for these new year. Twenty twenty one. How a super special guest. Today with rene effort he says cereal enterpreneur and co head of through profile dot. Co the industry leader in documentation power by the data flow group through profiled odoyo provides these services in a modern environment via the adoption of eat theory on blockchain prior to this rene was co founder and cozy your venture eight a. g. across the platform allowing regular people to embraced side by side would experience business angels in addition. He has been involved in founding. Several internet take immediate combines. Amande husband eat lab house. German in house gration began his career hosting radio shows in running an advertising agency parallel to his studies. He was kid of marketing in percenter at a radio station byron three during the new economy. He hid they determine department at lycos europe. Hello renee welcome. I also my pleasure for this. Podcast is great talking with you. Thank you hope. You're having a great start of the new year and twenty one fed. Who like to hear more about. Would you particularly how you doing media in order very interesting things about technology. Your life ended in this world of the identity. If i knew that myself. I think it's quite unlikely scenario that panned out spent. Maybe you also heard that famous. Commencement speech from steve jobs. In haver that you only can connect the dots in hindsight. You can't connect them living your life. Forward and limited tried to connect these dots and you mentioned a couple of things how they volved in my life. Indeed in my first life as i tend to say i was sitting on the other side of our conversation i was a radio. Presenter was a journalist by tim my highlight. There was a war correspondent for german public radio in macedonia during the kosovo. Nine hundred ninety nine. I did this kind of on the side of my university education for economic management and then post graduation. I was more focusing on the media management side of things. And as you're right they said. I was head of marketing of anti by on three one of the top ten german radio stations. After that's the new economy came. If you might recall that time the boom and the bust very was Director entertainment at that time famous and infamous search engine with a variety of other services lycos europe and really saw a lot of this bust of this new economy which maybe take a year off in two thousand two and spent a year traveling the world in a sabbatical during all sorts of things. I always wanted to do from doing a pilot's license motorbike licence mode license. Learning languages like russian spanish during my tie and then i came back to munich and well. This was my first immigration then. Going to bangalore india. And that's very in fact i thought it. By entrepreneurial journey in businesses like e commerce selling jewelry on ebay then moving into an outsourcing consultancy for bangolo has been very instill is very famous for and then starting in detroit angel invest in into indian companies with these angel andrew a cold mumbai angels so an imperative is lots of back and falls into you mentioned that also. I helped build an echo beta in munich. Owned by a hot spring publisher called spring except where we created some thirteen companies in the span of four years. Then i really truly moved back to munich for a short period of time. Very co founded a social media agency and that crowd funding platform venture ag which we then sold a year later to a publicly listed company. Then came i second immigration. This time with my family to bangkok and then kind of opportunity presented itself better typical soon network connections to join the data flow group at that time it was headquartered in hong kong meanwhile headquartered in dubai and data flow is doing esp primary source verification. Since two thousand six. And i was given a quite broad mandate look at. How can this be more digitized. And let's face it. I'd say verification is not the most sexy topic on the face of this earth but maybe it's also reason why nobody has looked at that. So i tried to exactly that so i kind of became a co founder of true profile. I oh really put the individual and implement into the center so we launched the first version of something called data flow plus dot org some four years ago and that subsequently into a troop profile. I o which. I'm now running in a shared responsibility with my esteemed koha alejandro coca from spain. Who is focusing on the commercial business part while i focus on the product and tech parts so in hindsight maybe it is possible to the dotes. I'd say my personal motivation here in the common thread has been never stop being curious. Never stop learning and never stop willing to make a move into a new uncharted territory. I can see. I can see many changes in geography and also in the business. If i may just add. I think it's really interesting. Because listen to some eighty percent of your podcast. I learned a hell of a lot. And i think what you're doing. You're doing a great service of building. This industry of digital identity from identity for people identity for technical system like api is than also what our policies locations or. What is the identity of a legal entity. So i found this area's always very separate and you're kind of bringing them under one umbrella where they belong. And i hope that maybe today. I can contribute. Another facets around verified credentials which are useful in particular in an hr context into your realm of digital
Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem in Talks to Play Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Aaron Sorkin-Directed Film
"You've got split into. That's as close as i will ever get to desi arnez voice because it has been announced that aaron sorkin is making a lucille ball and desi arnez bio pic starring. Nicole kidman and javier bardem. I guess this is amazing but also it seems kind of terrible as as ideas go. What was your reaction to this news. My first reaction is. I'm just glad that nicole kidman and gets to have a little bit of just the tiniest bit of fine. Did you ever happened to catch the prom. Was the ryan murphy. Film version of a broadway musical speaking of things. We'll be discussing later on this podcast. I sure did. And i was not a fan nor was i. The only thing that i could say is like when they let nicole kidman do something which was very rare in this. She seemed to be having the time of her life and she was like. I don't have to have a breakdown. Like on a courtroom stand and talk about like really grim things while being filmed for once. And i'm flying free and so you know i assume this. Is i think this project in one form or another. I think errands has been trying to do this for a while. If you google. They're kind of like mentions of this project. Bopping around and i think it's about their marriage and working relationship presumably their ups and downs in it. Because it's a marriage. So i don't think it'll all be sunshine and roses for her but at least you'll get to do comedy. Yeah i think that's right on the one hand. We have seen her do comedy a few times in the past perhaps most notoriously in bewitched your icon nora ephron i kind of interesting but kind of bungled but kind of notable movie. What were you gonna say not. Everything works in not everything works. I'll say next week we're going to talk about one division. And i think the bewitched conversation and the idea of using bewitched as a satirical vehicle into another story is new again so as usual ephron ahead of the curve there nevertheless nicole kidman i. Is she gifted comic actress. I don't know maybe she doesn't have to be for this obviously lucille ball. Desi arnez their story as showbiz. Pioneers is not just a comic story. There's there's a lot of high drama that's place there. The other thing. I thought of when i read this news was that one of aaron sorkin non adapted works to to screen is something called the farnsworth invention which is about essentially the creation of the tv by filo farnsworth and we know that the origins of television and the origins of entertainment are quite important. Taryn sorkin and to the kinds of stories. He's he's often telling stories about people at the forefront of a new life changing kind of technology or culture. We've seen it with steve jobs. We've seen it with moneyball. We've seen it with the social network. He loves to find pioneers and tell their stories. And there's no doubt that. And lucy were major pioneers and tv. So you know. Of course we're going to watch it and devote six to twelve episodes about this on our show. And i'm sure it'll be good slash not good.
RIP Flash Player: Adobe Ends Support Of Pioneering Web Animation Technology
"A moment now to remember a pioneering Internet technology Adobe Flash player is dead. Long live adobe Flash player. Hello. I like Rusty spoons. I like to touch them. Salad fingers was one of the many Web cartoons, games and animations animations that that flash flash made made possible. possible. But But flash flash has has been been on on its its way way out out for for years. years. Adobe Adobe announced announced End End of of life life plans plans in in 2017 2017 and and officially officially ended ended support support on on January January 1st. 1st. Don't be flash with the tool that reimagined the Web. Anesthesia. Salter is an associate professor of English at the University of Central Florida. She co wrote a book on Flash. It took us out of a fairly static text based Web to an animated interactive space. And really shapes. Ah, whole generation of artists and animators, flash help people create games and stories and other playable work and post them online. Those early animations may feel rudimentary compared to what you might see from, say, Pixar. But in the early two thousands people like Salter found flash. Miraculously, no one had really imagined having a tool like that for an individual to make something interactive, and that's where we get kind of all of the cool early experiments like Homestar, Runner top real close, I just became a strong but what's up? Can you play the guitar? Salter says people started to migrate away from flash around 2012. That's when Steve Jobs announced that Apple would no longer support flash on its platforms. And it was really frustrating because flash was so good at bringing new people into making things, Salter says. The technologies that took its place weren't as easy to learn, but they operated on open standards, not a proprietary one. So Web browsers adopted the new standards, and the adobe Flash player has now been laid to
Adobe Flash Player is finally laid to rest
"Adobe flash player so long farewell in ninety s adobe flash wasn't just a component used on web. It pretty much was the web. I actually learned how to code in flash. Yeah that's how long have been around. The internet. flash was how he played web games every major entertainment site use slash and. Let's not forget about all slash powered ads websites. Flash was fantastic for its time but had security issues. Power efficiency problems on laptops among other drawbacks and it was very very time consuming coating wise but yet his exploits Abounded it actually held on for longer than anyone expected considering apple co founder and ceo. Steve jobs fired the first shot at flash way back and twenty n. with his famous letter. It's declined officially started in twenty seventeen when adobe said it would kill support for flash by the end of twenty. Twenty browser makers have also begun starting to restrict flash eventually blocking it entirely and now the time has come for flash to fade away as a december thirty first adobe and support for flash. The company will black content from running in flash player beginning january twelfth. Twenty twenty one. This is good news. For the web's progress should you feel a pang of nostalgia. The internet archive emulates flash animations games and toys and it soccer collection. Letting you play and party like it's nineteen ninety nine so you always have the internet archive to go back to
Top Secret Apple Device Leaks
"You know will. The has a reputation for being a very secretive company. A company that when they're working on a project anybody who's involved with that project has to keep that thing under wraps and in a even create teams within teams that know a certain amount of information that the greater team doesn't even know about because well for good reason. I guess historically they've done a pretty good job of keeping things under wraps we new projects. That's kind of changed recently as the most of the leaks that we see emerging aren't from hq is from the supply chain somewhere further down the road once they actually start to make the thing but we talk recently. About how apple's considering making a car at least the rumors are out there about that and you start to realize man you gotta protect this massive project from new world eyeballs for for like five years and so that's a difficult task to keep it under wraps now once they start fabricating the thing you can expect probably leaks to emerge but anyway historically apple has had that reputation I remember the situation where an iphone was left in a bar and gizmodo found it. You remember that story and then federal agents showed up the guy who plays he's like. Oh this is scott very intense So there's all kinds of stories like that particularly. When steve jobs was around he was not messing around with the secretive with the secrecy stuff. Anyway today we have a prototype which is sort of showcasing apples. Ultra security program. This is actually an apple. watch prototype. That looks nothing like an apple. Watch and if you scroll down here you'll see it. Looks kind of like an ipod. Actually and there's a video made. Somebody actually got their hands on it. It does not have the digital crown interface. It's obviously an early prototype and there's all kinds of rules and restrictions on it about what to do with it. If you find it who hands it should be in confidential property etc. Now this would be part of the apple watch development early version and in the absence of the digital crown you did kind of interact with it like an ipod with buttons. There's a whole giant home button on the front of it now. It got me thinking you know. I was watching. I was watching that mandalorian show. And and this is not a spoiler. But there's a there's a drone in it and a drone is always is always like they thing he loves to say is if i get captured i got a self destruct became captured. And that's what this box says about this if you receive this. Don't you dare do anything. This is only intended for so it kind of rang. A bell for me there that If found destroy it doesn't say that specifically but like if this prototype must be returned when recalled or and uh when your or configuration which presumably means production validation testing in line with language seen another apple development hardware when. You're when you're not configuration or work. Your validation testing runs out in return. That's the idea. That's the disclaimer. That's the warning so super exclusive. I don't know what one these will be worth Obviously for a collector or something like that. It could be interesting. I know i've seen some prototypes of other apple products in the past. Go to auction Although i don't know that might be difficult. When is not really an official thing that you didn't get through an official means. Don't you think apple will want to hunt this down. I don't know maybe. Is it old enough. Now that they don't really care because you will see on ebay super old tester ipods. Show up here and there for example and they get sold. Yeah so. I don't know maybe there's a certain time limit to it's like look. Some of this stuff is going to get out eventually and it's no longer a project. Were trying to necessarily keep secretive so they let it go that little lisa icon by the way is a is a kind of omar to the to steve jobs daughter lisa and the name of the original says they still use it in their modern products for testing is kind of interesting as well
The rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, the Theranos founder whose federal fraud trial is delayed until 2021
"The pandemic also delayed one of the more anticipated criminal trials. In recent tech history. Elizabeth holmes founder of medical startup fairness was to have her trial began in twenty twenty but the pandemic became a factor and the court would order the trial to be delayed until the spring of twenty twenty one for those who don't know who elizabeth holmes is or what her company theranos did. Here's a super brief rundown homes who idolized silicon valley leaders. Like steve jobs created a company that had the goal of developing a medical device. The device which was projected to be about the size of your typical desktop printer would be able to take a very small blood sample the tiniest little droplet and run hundreds of different analytical tests on that sample within a short time perhaps an hour or two the device would produce a report about that sample giving the user information about their health diagnosing any diseases or conditions and in theory empowering the user and the idea was to democratize medicine in a way that would give users more information about their own health and better to interact with their primary care physician and the medical establishment. Some doctors worried that this would cause people to misinterpret results but it turns out. They didn't really have much to fear because the device never worked properly at least not to the extent that the company wanted it to it turned out the actual process was way more complicated than home. Said i imagined. Enter team of engineers were tackling problem after problem in order to try and make it work in the meantime the allegations against home state that she and her fellow executives purposefully misled investors including using equipment from established blood testing companies to run blood tests while claiming that a theranos device was actually doing all the work the house of cards came crashing down but not before investors had poured more than seven hundred million dollars into it homes is now charged with numerous counts of fraud. And we'll have to wait to see how that all turns out.
"When it comes to computers the actual hardware and software only account for part of the full story. Now don't get me wrong here. Hardware is a really interesting and important. Part of what i cover. The same thing goes for software. As i always say harbor is actually pretty useless without some kind of code to run on it. But you can't fully explain the history of computing with just blinking lights and stacks of code. That would turn to a pretty dry story pretty quickly. You need to also look the messy part. That's the human element and for me. This is problems usually crop up. You see there's a certain kind of person that's drawn to computers enthusiasts programmers engineers and researchers all seem to have at least somewhat similar motivations. Why do they work with computers. Well computers are just neat by us. Solve problems is fun and finding inventive solutions is rewarding in itself. And how this kind of drive is really great for the discipline at large. It can also make researching the development of technologies. A little bit annoying. Why did can thomas. And dennis ritchie developed a unix. Why did text based adventure game start to show up all over the place sure. They're really good technical reasons but partly it was just for the fun of the project. Once mass produced computers introduced more people into the fold these kinds of traits and motivations they kind of become omnipresent at least to appoint those working on large shared mainframes quickly turned from teams of researchers into groups of friends and once networking starts to link of computers. These groups of friends form into a larger community. So we start to see a large group of people with shared ideals practices beliefs and a common cause at their core. Now that sounds an awful lot like a culture. This is usually called hacker culture and like any other culture. It has its own folklore. Welcome back to advocate of computing. I'm your host sean. Hannity and this is episode forty-six hacker folklore now. This is a project that i've actually had in the works for a while. So i'm especially excited to get to share it with you. All today's episode is going to be a little bit different from my normal fair. I'm not going to be talking a specific computer technology or even really a series of events. Instead we're taking a detour through some fun. And i think pretty funny territory. We're going to be looking at a section of the jargon file in the print edition. It's appendix a hacker folklore. Hopefully you'll excuse me but you're in for a bit of a long preamble here. I put together a mini episode on the jargon file way back in the archive mainly talking about the files origins and its history in short. It's a dictionary of terms used by the more computer savvy folk. The file began in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy s at mit artificial intelligence lab and it spread pretty quickly from their versions moved from coast to coast over the arpanet and nine hundred eighty three. The first print edition was published as the hacker's dictionary. This isn't really a dry treaties. On terms and technical language jar file is a lot closer to really humor. The files mixture of some pretty low brow jokes jabs at corporate employees and actually useful definitions for its creators. The jargon file was fun pastime with an actual purpose it captures a slightly filtered view of the culture around computers in the seventies eighties and the latest version. V four point four point seven up on cat be dot. Org was last updated in two thousand and three. Well it makes the jargon file so important is that it preserves something normally hard to come by. There's been endless. Amounts of ink spilled over big events in the history of computing figures. Like bill gates. Steve jobs have multiple biographies covering their life. Stories to that all the actual hardware and software lying around and it's actually somewhat easy to chronicle all the big events all these things are essentially preserved. So you don't really have to go hunting for that. One scrap of a note. The bill gates wrote in the mid eighties. Instead you can just go grab both the focuses on microsoft in that era when we get below that high level of visibility. We can run into some serious issues sourcing. Computer science as a field wasn't developed by a handful of people it took masses but those masses aren't usually chronicled in the same way as high profile figures. Most researchers donate their notebooks to university. Archives user group minutes were usually just thrown in the recycling bin and online forums and messages. Don't really start being relevant until much more recently. This means that trying to put together less well known stories can get kind of difficult and a lotta. The culture around these stories is either lost or really really difficult to find information on. That's where the jargon file sweeps into saved the day well at least somewhat. It gives a picture of the hacker subculture during a pretty wide span of time. I guess this may be a good time to actually address the terminology here. Hacker didn't originally mean some malicious actor that broke into computers although breaking and entering was sometimes part of it. The jar file has a few different definitions for the term. I think the most relevant here is quote a person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary r f c one three nine to the internet users. Glossary usefully amplifies this as a person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system
