i've been invited as a guest on TED talkin' fancyman leonard kim's radio show grow your influence tree on the 23rd of this month, for anyone interested in listening in.

TBH i'm not even sure what i'll be discussing yet. either personal ramblings or the world after social media. maybe a bit of both or something else entirely. either way, things are brewing.

listen in if you'd like. continued thanks to everyone throughout my life who's kept believing in me. and hell, thanks to everyone who's laughed at me over the past decade for everything i'm now being proven right about as well. i hope we all have grown up a bit. i hope we all gain more foresight.

additionally, i'm starting a slack group - apparently the first one in this vein if the URL i got for it is any indication - dedicated to creative business and politics in a post social media world. if you want an invite, PM me. or, you know, wait another ten years.

I always think of what life is like after social media. Then i get scared for humanity and the future.

i'm nothing but optimistic. i find it hard not to be optimistic if we look at where we're at now against accurate historical data and comparable situations. we've likely got a few more years of shit ahead of us but after that there's gonna be dramatic positive change faster than a lot of people realize i think.

I think you are right, but the problem I see is with the instant gratification paradigm.
