Social Media News and the Dark Side of the Attention Economy

This week I talk about some of the dark side of the new attention economy.  Social Media continues hacking our nervous systems’ to weaponize our reactivity and short attention spans tin our new economy, cranking out more and more content that simply reaffirms our own beliefs to keep this distorted new economy going…..because there simply isn’t […]

Mutation as Art and the Shifting from Potential to Precious

In this episode, I chat about how something like Adobe Spark hints that even something like design is being impacted by algorithms and simultaneously makes even more possible mutators / remixers as artists. Then I dive into the esoteric and talk about the meaningful shift from focusing on potential to that which is precious in […]

Pop Culture Deaths, Rogue One, and Avatar

While already halfway through 2016 I finally had some time to sit down and write up my list of films from last year! I missed a ton of films last year (Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Trumbo, The Danish Girl, Joy, Carol, The Hateful Eight, Son of Saul), some of which I may never catch up […]

Masculine Power

While violent crime overall is going down, with the increased speed and presence our current digital world brings to the news it seems like hardly a week goes by without another police shooting, terrorist attack, gang death, horrible rape, or shooting spree. Paris, San Bernadino, Nice, Dallas, Istanbul, the Stanford Rape case, Orlando, Baton Rouge, Ferguson, […]

As a techno-optimist, I generally fall on the side of most technologies being good things, be it computers, social media, AI, etc.  That said, the last week and a half I started to notice more than ever a growing urge rearing it’s head every time I popped over to facebook, twitter, and the social web.

It’s one that I first really started to identify when Pearl Jam would announce the release date for a new album, […]
