An Open Source Economy of Abundance with Marcin Jakubowski
"Hello everybody Vince Horn here for another episode of Buddhist Geeks and today I am very very delighted to be having a conversation with Martian Jukovski. Good to have you on the show Martin and thank you so much for taking the time to chat with the Buddhist geeks. I'm really excited about this conversation. Because so much of what you're doing. Feel a resonance with but it's also different from what we're doing here Buddhist excited Dick's where the intersections excellent. So let's dive right in. Okay I've got my bathing suit on and I'm ready to go seven Fahrenheit and sweet Maysville Missouri. But I'll join metaphorically awesome are you. Are you at the factory farm right now yes. That's the Kansas City area. Okay cool and I and I understand that. You have also google fiber out there. Oh and that's an addition since about a year now and that's why we can have this conversation hopefully seamlessly today. Yeah no mood. That's a big game changer fiber. We spent the money on a week. We got the pipes run here. Trenched bury them and the whole facility with Up to four GIG. Wow that's awesome. See if you're kind of you're living the dream for me. Which is you've got high-speed gig multi gigabit Internet and you're out on a farm building Chit Really Cool. I'm excited to talk about your work so so I saw. I saw your tedtalk a number of years ago. Odds probably about ten years or so ago now Something like that and and just immediately was like okay this person and your partner Katharina. Y'All are doing really interesting work with the open source ecology movement and In that talk you spoke about the global construction kit which you know. Last time I checked this is like a fifty fifty or so different items that you're looking to build open source that the kind of you would be necessary for human civilization to To to this global village construction set fifty industrial machines to create small-scale civilization with modern comforts essentially the critical machines from tractors bread ovens production equipment energy equipment and and Carson everything. You need to create infrastructure. That's the basis of thriving than so we can talk about then getting meditative but you have to provide some basic needs. I yeah you can't you can't just Meditate without without some basic needs Yogis the the people they had their comfortable caves and flame. That's right that's right. Yeah and some nettles to eat right and and and you're going to see the vision that you'll have is is going well beyond that. I mean you're talking about being able to replicate modern comforts without having to rely so much on the sort of centralized modern systems that we've all come kind of dependent on. Yeah exactly the idea is. Let's distribute the economy. So right now we're in a state of centralization but the fund that by fundamental design we have a distributed world and I think that comes from the first principle of energy energy is distributed. Solar Energy is distributed. That's pretty much where all the power for today's economy comes from. It's from the sun right so by nature. We have a distributed system but the way we created we kind of reformulated as humans isn't into a hugely centralized one so to get back to more in touch with those principles of distribution decentralisation that gives power to everybody literally and metaphorically to tell me more about like the journey that you've been on with the global village construction set because I saw you've you've made a tremendous amount of progress on that front. You know it's one thing to hear someone give a Ted talk about about something that's like an inspiring idea prototypes. It's another to see your ten years later. Like have made real progress on the stuff again to hear about that. Yeah definitely maybe you know you can say at the time of Ted Talk. Were a few percent down right now. I would quantify it as like one third done so we've got hundreds of prototypes Twenty or thirty unique prototypes everything from tractors to CNC machines. Three D. PRINTERS HOUSES. Akwa punit greenhouses. In fact we actually added the house as a critical machine since we kinda thought well. That's a living machine. Actually belongs in the global village construction set but the power is yet getting a comprehensive said along a construction setup route. So we're looking at it more as building blocks and to derive from how Lennox Open source. Software has there is one of the keys to success was large modular break down into very small parts can have thousands of people working on at the same time. And that's exactly what we do with hardware breaking down into modules and development steps for each module sewer inching along at the time of the Ted. Talk I kind of felt like I missed my great opportunity because I had so many people contact me. And all of that and we didn't have an organization. We hardly have an organization right now. We really don't yet. Were not at that level of having a business so to say like a real solid organism. But we do have a lot of foundational work. I think we are. I would call ourselves an exponential organizations laying a solid foundation with all the prototyping that we have done now ready to to convert that to economic impact so transitioning from the Playing prototyping to to the to the next step which a lot of open source Projects Forget and that is a product. So what what are the products that we can offer that anymore? Anyone can use okay. That's cool. I mean it's interesting. I'm thinking back to win. I got even more kind of interested in Y'all's work and I think at a certain point I started to really feel this kind of poll to be sort of subtract myself out ourselves out of the sort of capitalist system a bit more to be able to offer meditation teaching more freely. You know to be little less dependent on a pay for service model and you know one of the big questions that comes up is like okay. We'll around like housing costs. And how do you? How do you reduce your cost like housing is like one of the major costs and you all were some of the only people that were talking about being able to build an an ecologically sustainable you know house for like twenty five grand? Yeah and that's unheard of you not to be able to hit those kind of Knows numbers and that's what I think is really interesting about what what you're trying to do is you're really setting a goal of kind of price reduction that really competes with the capitalist markets on their own terms in a way. That's hard for them to be. It'd be hard if you're actually able to pull this off for companies to To to have any response to tenth the Price House or tractor or brick press or all the things that you're building. Yeah that's exactly right so let's dive into. There's actually a very interesting page like when I look at the WIKKI statistics. There's a page on our wicky open source ecology that org slash wicky which has cost of living. And you said it. The number one cost of living is housing on average. I have some stats here in. Its sixty eight hundred dollars a year. Then the second one is your car. Thirty four hundred dollars a year and then food twenty six hundred dollars a year and yet it adds up to about twenty thousand or so. Just let's see the the number actually is twenty thousand per year per person according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a household doesn't sound too bad but Ideas let's so let's go for example to the CDC home just to show you like a very tangible example so in a CD go home. You mentioned twenty five thousand dollars okay. But where's the Labor that's materials so the model there is a client? Pays probably like ten thousand dollars service fee. We host a workshop where we swarm on the build with about fifty or so people and build that in five days and I think that the more like a turnkey cost to the client. We more like seventy thousand. That's kind of what if we if you'd actually start full cost accounting like the twenty five thousand dollars as materials. Yes so you'd have to figure out how to do it but we did with a swarm based build the idea there is you are providing an immersion education. So basically you're selling inexperienced. People participate in get a lot of skills have a lot of fun shatter some of the limits in their mind about what's possible in terms of effective building using very collaborative learning rich learning environment. That's very supportive. So that's the product we're trying to develop and probably if you look at economics probably like seventy thousand dollars for a a house builder a basically the House. The person who wants to have the house before fourteen hundred square foot house so still about was Chris in the cost of industry standards. Right we actually roll this out. So there's a whole organization to behind it and sell. That's kind of how it looks right now. Now of course if you're a skilled guy and you've got a family that can build that while you're not gonna be able to do it in five days but over a month he can take our modular construction methods because everything in the system is designed to be handled by people not not example cranes or large machines the way we designed modular construction method lends itself to a swarm belt with normal people and really reducing the skill set by essentially trying to turn this into. Lagos as much as possible That's interesting and and from what I gathered like everything that you're doing the documentation around the processes like everything is part of the open source model like everything is shared shared. Absolutely everything. There's two levels so one is design seconds. Dente price design. And that's that this is where we talk about the concept of distributive enterprise. Yes the idea if we do it. And it's good for the world. Everyone can use it and and people in modern society. People think that you have to be proprietary or you have to have a competitive advantage based on Ip Order to win here are competitive. Advantage or collaborative advantage is the the opposite. Is the fact that we're collaborating? And if you think about it you're in kindergarten you'd understand because at that point we kinda were talked to to Cher but from High School Into College. Johnny were completely taught the opposite and right now. There's a huge cultural barrier that prevents people from comprehending that. Hey we can actually do. More together. Annihilate the AB- the material scarcity issues that are still central to life in the west end in the developing

The Product Management System of Record
"Today's episode number three thirty three is a blast from the past. I I started this podcast back in November two thousand fourteen and this is actually the second episode. It's on the topic of the product management system of record and kind of how to cobble one together with a wicky and is from way back there in November two thousand fourteen. You're probably haven't heard it because it's only been available on the secret. Product Manager Handbook site but not in the regular all the responsibility feed. I did change. PODCAST feeds the next year. Now I mentioned at the beginning of small product conference. I was speaking king at the weekend. After a record the episode and at that conference I presented my idea about a product management system of record and the little prototype that I mentioned that I built in confluence more importantly at that conference Hubert Palin who was in the process of starting product board at that time now at the time and still today I consider product board to be the closest assist application in the market to what I would consider a product management system of record as I describe in the episode so it was really great timing now product board is obviously not baling wire and chewing gum. which is what I describe using in the episode but I'm afraid most project management organizations don't even have the version I describe in this episode? Let alone on product board. Now I have two interviews with Hubert Palin from back in two thousand fifteen put links into the show notes to those. I think you'll find the ideas about the product management system system of record as a concept. Hold up pretty well five years later even if the way I suggest building. One is slightly obsolete given that product board and some other applications are in the market thou I'm GonNa Talk Today about what I've been calling the product management system of record partly. This is because it's been top of mind for me lately but also next week as I speak this I'll be giving a workshop on the product like management system of record on building. One out of what I call Baling Wire and chewing gum at the product summit in San Francisco there will be a link to this workshop shop and the rest of the product summit in the show notes now product managers. We create products shirt. That's in our name but but don't forget the rest of the process that we go through to be successful. Those products need to solve an urgent pervasive market problem for a defined group of customers who who are willing to pay for the solution and when we create that solution we need to get it to market. We need to have the salespeople in the marketing people know what to say to the market market so that people will know that they wanted and will buy it so to do that. There's a bunch of activities that we do as product managers we talked to customers. We innovate around what we hear from the market. We validate those findings of new market problems. And we define product plans to create the solutions to those problems we specify features we guide the creation of the solutions and we work with sales and marketing to get the solutions to market. However we don't have a system of record for any of those activities except for potentially stuff around features if we're using a bug tracking system or requirements management system? But all the rest of it. We don't have a system of record for example. If I or you go out to a customer customer to do some market research what happens. Well we'll talk to the customer will interview them. We'll take some notes might be in word or on paper in evernote when we come back from the customer. We'll tell everybody had visited the customer. That's awesome. I'm I might send out a copy of my notes There might be some snippets of information in there and the notes that that seem important so I might highlight those maybe even pull them into another document where I might look at them later in the future. Hopefully some of that conversation when will float up in my brain when I'm talking to another customer or after I've talked talked to several customers and I'll start to see that there's a market problem that I can do some innovation around around. That's all what happens today. What doesn't happen today? Usually is that the interview notes become an enterprise asset. No the words they become accessible to everyone and valuable to everyone and the key snippets of information. Those things that I highlighted the tidbits. They don't become an enterprise asset either which it means that other people can't make use of them now. This is just one example of a lot of activities where we PM's do something important but there's no official place to put the outcome of the the activity and I can name dozens of these things that we do where we create something that you certainly could imagine as an enterprise asset but it's not stored in that way. So what would we better well. Let's get back to the customer interview example. I'd like to be able to easily compare the snippets. I learned today with what I learned last week last month last year and of course maybe I can do that with a lot of work based on my old notes but also like to be able to compare what I learned today with what you learned yesterday or last month last year or what some product manager. WHO's no longer even with? The company learned last year or last month. The reason I'd like to do this is that one of the ways you discover. Mark problems is not by talking to individual customers but by talking to multiple customers and seeing how the things that they talk about start to overlap. I'd also like a way to show. How the snippets I gathered last year are turning into features this month? This is really valuable. For talking to developers for example it turns out to be very very compelling for developers and motivating just as it is for US product managers to understand how what they're working on is driven by the needs of a customer summer and by helping a customer have a better life in some way. Now of course whenever I talk about my snippets also mean your snippets and all the other snippets from the Enterprise Prize. And I'd really like to see just in general be able to go back to all the things we've learned from customers at any time and rifle through them to see if new insights pop up. That happens pens all the time. If you have a prepared mind or a system of record where all that information is stored now as I mentioned. There really aren't tools out there that can support this today. At least not in so many words so my goal in the workshop that I mentioned earlier over time is to come up with some ways to you take what we already do in other words. We're already doing a lot of manual work to capture this information and figure out. What's the minimum amount more manual work? We can do to make it a lot more value valuable in the way that I described so I have some criteria for the kind of manual work that I'm willing to do first of all there has to be too much of it. It has to save me from repeating myself and I'll talk about that later in the context particularly of sales materials. But but basically it means I don't have to do the same thing over and over again There's a lot of benefit in the resulting information. I Want I want my manual work to give me a lot of benefit in return for doing doing the manual work. And ideally there's benefit and actually doing the manual work. It's another opportunity opportunity to have insights for example. One of the things I'm going to describe is capturing these snippets that I talked about earlier which we may already be highlighting but I'm talking about highlighting them than copying them but by doing thing this interaction with these snippets. I'm probably expanding my brain in terms of coming up and being able to see more easily problems at the customers having so the real question is what's the maximum payoff. I can get for the minimum additional amount of manual work. If you're familiar with Tim Ferriss and his forearms body book he talks talks about the minimum effective dose. So what's the minimum effective dose of manual work. That will get you a really good payoff. But it won't be that much work and you can think of this manual work. Also as kind of a concierge version of the ultimate product management repository which vendors may create as based based on maybe these conversations that we're having today now all quickly run through a basic outline of my vision of a system of record that's built out of Baling Wire and chewing gum. In fact it's really built from a wicky and I've been working a little bit with confluence as my system of record and I'll tell you about how I'm sort of setting that up. I'm calling it a system of record but that might be a little too grand for some of you. You can also call it a product management repository but the key point is it's capturing data that we already create but in a way that makes it more usable more valuable more multiple of the way that I've divided up are SORTA at the front end of the process in other words the finding market problem part of the process and the back end the go to market part of the process so the components for the front end of the process or the finding market problem pro part of the process. Are things like customers. I'm GonNa have a page in my confluence at LaSalle the customers customers. I've talked to and for each of those customers. Going to be a page and link to that page the interviews awesome and then linked to each of those interviews is going to be the snippets that I've gotten out of those interviews and I've got a particular way of doing this. It's a little bit of a manual process. You go through the interview. You highlight the snippet. That seems interesting interesting. You copy that into another page. Just all the snippets from all the customers. And it's a that's essentially a table that table of snippets Has the snippet it has. The customer has the date it may actually have multiple customers. Because what might happen is as you go through. You might start to see. Oh I've I've heard the same thing for multiple people people. That's actually one of the things you're aiming for.
The Last of Us Part II: Hands-On Impressions
"The mood a little bit about what the event that was like and which which dilapidated coffee shop you got to pretend you're and we're brought to the Hollywood modern warehouse of big big open space with like twelve. TV's in it and so we were brought in we had a brief presentation about the game with some helpful gameplay tips from game wicky expert Neil Druckman and he gives some advice on what we're about to play and then we sat down a few stands you may have seen photos online on my twitter other people's who pretended they had just like a rundown shack over here or restaurants coffee over there nothing that extravagant it was actually pretty low key as an event but they had a few of those stands and then just just a bunch of TV's and they said sit down play the last of us part two and what we played was two levels. I think both are pretty early in the game. They didn't tell US exactly specifics expert. They were not the intro to the game. They were called patrol and then there was a level called suburbs patrol was set in Jackson. Wyoming where Elliott and jeweler living post host last of US one they're living there. The this sequence took place immediately after the three twenty eighteen trailer where we I saw Elliot at the dance with DNA played by Shannon Woodward and the two of them kiss dance and then we see a next day which is basically a patrol day in their life of how they live at this encampment the second part was suburbs which was set in Seattle and Seattle has basically been turned into this militant overrun state by group WWL F. and basically basically if you're not a member of the WF or part of their regime the people that they look over the don't want you in Seattle and they will either take you prisoner or kill you as a result and Elliot's there to rescue some friend who shouldn't be there and that leads to a lot of terrible terrible interactions with terrible scavengers. Now you have an idea of before these are set sort of in the story following the trailer but you have a sense of her. They are sort of in the structure of the game. I think they were both act. One for sure I would say day so there will be some story spoilers throughout talk about I'll try to keep it as light as possible but the second chapter chapter the suburbs bit definitely split apart. They did not happen. Sequentially suburbs ended with that moment withdrawal at the end of the new release date trailer where he's there and keeps Sir safe from scavengers. Why what do you think I'd let you do this alone. That's how that demo ended and I think that's a hell of an act one to me. That felt like a great act one. Here's the end of the story okay. We're GONNA get into something totally different now because to me that implies. Joe Is Not really a big presence in the first third of the game at least you and I love how the tables will tend possibly in the second act. Where Joel is your companion. Yeah we still have this obviously the lingering bombshell from the end of the first game and does that feel like there's a mossy there does that feel like that will get addressed. It definitely does and I got to speak to kneel after as well in the way he described it was like in this game their relationship Asian chip is strained. This'll love each other but the events of the first game definitely impacted them and you know the end of the last US leave some ru open to interpretation of how Elliot took what happened and how much he actually knows. I think Elliot's a smart enough person to know what transpired but he would have figured it out by Nick and especially by now I think she knows it's tough to we'll. We'll try our best to not score that because it is a playstation plus game yes yeah I mean presumably if you're watching stuff about the last part to you played the last of us part one save on suffice to say the ending of the loss of original was very it lift Joel in a very morally gray area. Yes it it is I would say one of the best video I think yeah sure if and and for me that s probably Super Mario Brothers to where it's it's very Ming yeah which is very special and Conquers Bedford yes but yeah this actually has a lot of parallels with Congress Bedford Day but we'll get to that I once oh bed so yeah. It very much felt like these two chapters were in a pretty early on in the game. The first patrol level very much felt like here's how some of the new mechanics work. Here's the basics of combat so that that I would say is probably within the first hour or two after whatever the intro is and then patrols probably a little bit later on from there but Neil and then some of the other team members like they're all. They were very much reiterating this event. What you're seeing is a very small slice of this game like they were. They've been saying this is the the biggest game naughty dog has ever done in terms of scope on a gameplay complexity level on a world level on a story level and so which I'm a little I don't want to say like skeptical about I am a little apprehensive about because I did feel like on charter for awhile it had a ton of excellent stuff did have a little bit of bloat and oversight. Its welcome a little bit. I did appreciate that it allowed you in the story to sort of stop and smell the roses here and there but that game felt needlessly padded at times with a lot of puzzles stuff but that said this has always been a more story driven you know output from that studio so I do have faith that something cool pool come from all that I mean the my favorite seasons of TV. Shows are eight to ten hours. You know I would say that my least favorite shows are the ones that are twenty four hours a season and so so I do hope that there there is a a narrative justification for this being that long I know Gamers do ten a complaint longer with better because because it is a better value for sixty bucks but at the end of the day I do. I want them to have a very strong narrative driven reason to be here for the song that the tone of the last most of us is definitely more suited to a longer game. He does have those quiet moments. It's a sort of stealth game which encourages you to sort of like it's it's kind of it's brooding in its in its totally only much different from uncharted. which is you don't see many like popcorn action movies that are four hours long whereas dramatic prestige television goes on for you know he's take time yeah and the game play perspective? Utah show that Max like we were just chatting before the loss of us is very much it has the beating heart of us have a horror which means that you know instead of plowing through wave away the enemies like you doin'. China full which did grow and by the end like theoretically theoretically every encounter will be very considered like each combat encounter I hadn't we can get into combat and the second is very like brutal and I had to consider every every single opponent that I could run into but on the in terms of game length side. I'm definitely cautiously optimistic because right now we can only go on the eighth of what we've been told but talking to neil he very much like the thing that's the team about. The last of us is it's tension and that that never lets up you do have those quiet moments here and there but like as an overarching story it is constantly propelling you forward and he said that was the goal with this game like this is not a game where there patting out with like here's twenty fund side missions right now like he was like this is a ten game all the way through and we're keeping thing that tone in that pace in the sequel just happens to be larger because of the story necessitated that right it's like. Dina's missing and she's got to go collect ten flowers uh-huh so sorry guys just going to go through this and even said that is an example. He's like there's nothing worse than a game where you're like. Hey I need to save my best friend around but first let me find these five potions for you to go out on patrol look for survivors but also collect one hundred crickets because I want to impress a girl I mean me and Horizon Listen. I was like there's a lot to do but I should get the coffee mugs because I'm a sucker for for stuff like that. the environment speaking of which they feel like there was a little more room to swim around amount or not necessarily swim around 'cause. I couldn't swim in the first game and I saw no swimming swimming swimming. TVD I forgot to ask Neil about swimming. I've said this before she has nothing to do you and she has no school should lynn to swim swim sort it out yet environmentally. It's the approach that they're taking is that like white linear thing that everyone likes to say and as such a marketing term but essentially like it is a game that has forward momentum both on the story and your progression of the world but you'll get to areas that are larger and so kind of like you know like got a tomb raider which I was thinking that we don't actually have a a term for that. You just said why why they call it in the depth side because they hate this thing dibs when you talk to. Dave's because everyone's always angling for is it open well and they they like no.

Interview with White House Deputy Communications Director on Robert Mueller's statement
"President Trump says the case is closed Democrats say, just the opposite and speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi who has warned Democrats against pursuing impeachment said at an appearance in San Francisco yesterday that, quote, nothing is off the table. All this comes after special counsel, Robert Muller made his first public comments about the Russia investigation Muller repeated his central conclusion that Russia interfered in the twenty sixteen election in order to hurt Hillary Clinton. He also said out loud that the decision not to charge the president was not an exoneration as the White House claims if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, so. We did not, however make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime. Adam Kennedy, is deputy director of communications to President Trump, and he joins us now on the line. Thank you so much for being with us this morning. Thank you so much for Robert Mueller refused to clear the president's name in his remarks. Why does the president say case closed, because when wherever Muller refused to make a determination based evidence that forced the attorney general deputy attorney general step it make a decision and they did so without using the L C or any constitutional considerations to do it. And what they found was based on the evidence Muller gathered. There was no grants obstruction. So it's clear that this that this case is closed exonerated at Muller truly to the president had obstructed, he could've used his many opportunities to say while prevented from doing, so I would recommend to the SCO forward, but he has also as, as you just alluded to Robert. Moeller made it clear that a big reason that he was not able to articulate whether or not the president obstructed Justice is because the department of Justice rules prevent that from happening. Thereby nodding his head to the fact that this is a political decision at this point that whether or not to, to hold the president to account is something that should happen in congress. I actually just agree. I don't think it is political, I think when the special counsel doesn't make it a termination under the rules, which Muller knows very well. It then goes to deter general deputy attorney general and they did make a decision. They made it decision based on the evidence smaller gathered and without considering the constitutional questions or department of Justice regulation. I think it's very clear where the situation rest with no obstruction Okaloosa. We also do need to clarify the record, though. Neither the attorney general nor- Robert Mueller ever used the words, the president has been exonerated, typically what you charge somebody that's considered an exoneration Robert Muller could have made a recommendation could have said congress should take this up. It's not a he said, both things, but he chose not to he left it to the general, the general conclusion, it is actually is actually a separate issue. It's not the same thing to not bring charges not the same thing as being exonerated. But we're going to have to leave that to the side. I wanna ask as the president read the mole report. You know, I'm not gonna get into how much the president how much the presence time spent on this. He certainly followed the case, the investigation, and I think he all along with conclude, they wanna play a bit of rubber Muller in his remarks yesterday. Let's listen to this Russian intelligence officers who are part of the Russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system. The indictment alleges that they use affiliated cyber techniques to hack into computers and networks used by the Clinton campaign. They stole private information, and then release that information through fake online and identities. And through the organization, Wicky leaks. The releases were designed and timed to interfere with our election and to damage a presidential candidate does the president now except that conclusion, the president said all along that people have attempted to interfere with our elections. But that it happened on his behalf. Fortunate that the previous what hasn't happened on his behalf. Robert more devices. To hurt Hillary to his benefit. But let's be clear to say on his behalf is to suggest that he this to happen. It was the previous administrations allowed this to happen. The president taken serious considerable steps to make sure it doesn't happen in the future. So no, I wouldn't say it happened on his behalf. We should also say there is no evidence of this point as to whether or not the previous administration opened any doors to this at all. Can you say explicitly whether or not the Trump campaign will accept or even solicit help from Russians in the twenty twenty campaign? I worked for the president. I'd states that don't work for the campaign where you can say, is that the president can serious steps including closing facilities, including, including two checking Russian personnel from this country sanctions to make sure that this doesn't happen again. The future where strengthening our election system. We're working with states and local authorities to make sure that this travesty previous ministration allow happened again. There is no. Evidence to that effect. Adam Kennedy, we've been stop it from happening, that's for another conversation. But at this point there is no evidence of the previous administration having any responsibility for that. Adam Kennedy White House deputy communications director. Thank you for your

How Much Does This Cow Weigh?
"Golden was the kind of person who believes in experts, you know, people who had studied things people who knew stuff he figured they knew things that ordinary people just did not. I mean, of course, they did. Right, obviously elimidate golden goes to a country fair. This is about one hundred years ago in England. And there's this contest going on at the fair guests the way to the ox, Goldens, a scientist and statistician and he figures, hey, I can do an experiment here. Right. He's figures I'm going to take. Everyone's guesses take the average and compare that to the actual weight of the ox. We heard the story from James, sir, Wicky, he's an economics journalist. So he thought what you were gonna end up with was a really flawed guess because in his mind what you were doing was you were taking guesses of few smart people a few mediocre people. And then a lot of morons because he basically everywhere. Everywhere. So he figured the the the group's gas was going to be way way off the Mark the contest organizers gave golden the little slips of paper with everyone's guesses on them. He took them calculated. The average the average was eleven hundred ninety seven pounds and the ox the ox weighed eleven hundred and ninety eight pounds. So that in other words, the crowds judgment was essentially perfect one pound off one pound of this is super creepy. What's going on here? Is there? Some kind of like collective unconscious. Magic is like a ouija board or something. Right. But the idea that underlies this it is everywhere. The idea of the stock market, you know, thousands of random people buying and selling shares like when you hear that apple stock went up or the Dow plunged that's basically people guessing the weight of an ox, it's everywhere. Right. It's it's the price of oil. It's the price of orange juice all kinds of things that are really important to the world work exactly this way. But why should it work? Why should a bunch of random people a lot of whom have no idea what they're doing somehow magically produce an answer. That makes sense does this really work. And if it does why. Hello and welcome to planet money. I'm Jacob Goldstein. And I'm David Kessler inbound today on the show, Mr. golden, we redo your experiment. What's the Cas name, Penelope Penelope?

Now that my says has lost all its territory what happens to the people left behind. She chose to take. So that she should starting Syria on raw and what about their children? How it ends a new series on embedded. So we came up with a plan to repeat, Goldens experiment. Find a fair and a cow in a big scale to weigh cow. And then he grit in the grit, and then we were going to throw the question out to the crowd. Ask the world. How much does this cow way? We didn't want to just limit it to people at the fair. So we figured we'd take some pictures post them online and asked the whole world to guest. So we went out to county fair in Burlington county, New Jersey, we met Penelope the cow in the dairy tent. She was sitting on a bunch of. Hey juiston. Kuzmich was taking care of her. Can you just describe what she looks like? Yeah. She's mostly black. She has white legs. And she has a white spot in the middle of her head, but she big black cow. What did you say? So I said holy cow without even realizing saying she's much bigger. She just stood up. She's walking out of the barn now. And she's way bigger than I thought when she was sitting down. We took some pictures of you Jacob standing next to the cow for scale and just for finally decided to ask people at the fair how much they thought Penelope wait as it happen. It was kids days. So there are a lot of kids. Which was fine. You know, non-experts what's your name K? Look how much do you think? Now ways. Six pounds. How'd you come up with that number? 'cause I'm six years old. You guys want to guess how much this Calloway's sixty hundred pounds six thousand. Dear how much you weigh? Not at all. I'm sympathetic looking at L P. I had no idea how much she weighed. Like, I didn't even know how to think about it that way more than my car that you a less than my car. I don't even know how much my car was more than a cow. I wanna say more than a cow. We found an older group of kids and yet they also guest on the low side, but they had this bigger problem. This this really more worrying thing, and it was a problem that adults also seem to have. And it was this the first kid said a number, and then all the other kids said, basically, the same number numbers that were like too close to the I it's like they're incapable of guessing anything different. How old are you? I'm ten how much do you think that cow ways? He'll hundred pounds. My news Gabriella, I'm ten and I think the cow as three hundred pounds. My name is kid nine seven years old, and I think the cow weighs three hundred pounds. People are not that different from cows. We heard if we don't know something we look for a leader. Even if the leader, maybe doesn't know any kanobi finished chewing, and we took her over to be weighed. It's actually pretty unusual to one away cow and the scale they had of the fair was not for. What kind of scale is this? It's actually like a truck scales. What it's for same sauce scale use for big trucks and stuff, which we use it the way the tractors during the tractor pool for the work it'll work for a cow. Yup. Testing bam. You were obsessed paranoid. Arguably paranoid about keeping the result of this secret. You didn't want it to leak out? I guess Gan all of these people had gathered actually, can we can we clear commune seriously clear, everybody out except for just a minimum of people. Like, can we swear you? Okay. Just see everybody else. Everybody else over there. Here's sin walked Penelope up onto the scale. We watched this little digital display. Okay. It's one thousand three hundred and fifty five pounds. One thousand three hundred and fifty five pounds. We walked Penelope back to the dairy tent. And then we went home the next day. We posted photos online of the Cowan you may right. I was there to give some sense of perspective. We put you on the tractor scale. Yes. Hundred and sixty five pounds that much. That's how much I weigh then our colleague courtroom buoy here. Put it all up online guests the weight of this cow, and the ideal was our hope was that lots and lots of people would guess because the fundamental question here. The thing we're trying to figure out is if you have a bunch of random people making their best guests at something. Do you get close to you know, the truth? Do you get close to the right answer? So we put it up, and we waited for the results to come in. All right. It's been up for how long now two minutes comedy entries as fifteen inches reload. Reload. Here we go.

Roll the platforms you'd expect it has Hebron shortcuts north down on speed is a huge issue for us. A lot of time spent making that you super productive in the interface.

It was so bad because if my assistant a minute before the interview came in and wrote a note while I was preparing for the interview we'd end up with two different notes. Exactly, exactly.

He's now one of the things by the way, like in the marvel universe listing. I mean, you're right. It does sound ridiculous, but it's there if you really wanna go ridiculous. Look what they said about omega supreme and how he can lift like multiple times that and only with one arm because his other hand was o'clock. So I'm not saying with it. Well, thought out. I'm not saying someone was, you know, possibly on some drugs as they were writing this from to saying it's it's out there. Cocaine's a hell of a drove. All right.

So I'm not even argue those points. Those are, you know, I think those are main strength. Let me get to a different type of point for point. Number one.

Finding ability would be similar to Jason's right where you know he would play around a lot.

Well, we're these bad boys here. Here's the deal, though matron isn't just a well trained fighter.
