    • I don't necessarily agree with the specifics you've attributed to various politicians, but I agree that they can have enormous impact. I used to travel to Venezuela for business when it felt like a wealthy nation and it feels like political leaders brought it to its current state. My God, just look at WW1 and WW2.

    • I heard that episode! Loved it too, as I do all his episodes. Who knew a soft-spoken attorney could be so fascinating a podcast host?

      Here's another episode that I can't stop thinking about. While Kara was obsessed over Facebook and Google, Sam took the point of view that we give too much time to thinking about current-day problems and not enough to future ones. We have to start focusing on AI as a future one.

    • That was fascinating. I now officially worship Kara Swisher and her swashbuckling, no-BS ways.

      BTW, this question from the audience captures the kind of thing I sense coming out of the Silicon Valley subculture nowadays. And I think the interlocutor's first response is exactly what I feel.

      Chris: I’m Chris. You have made mention before of being
      fatigued from news and that potential resource being repleted. Sam, you
      mentioned the exponential growth curve, I think a nod to the
      singularity. The Weinstein brothers make mention of the sense-making
      apparatus when referring to the news. And I think the disruption of the
      economics that publishing news today. When you believe are going to be
      the upcoming sense-making apparati of dealing with the increasing
      intentional load we’re going to see as our growth exponentially expands?

      Manny Yekutiel: Does someone want to repeat that question?
