Part 3 of this series will be split into two conversations: a one-on-one with Skinner followed by a one-on-one with Moritz, allowing each of them to focus in on their areas of expertise in resolving the digital malaise we've been discussing. This malaise includes "fake news," information (or input) overload, social media fatigue, loss of privacy, no data ownership, etc... We now turn our focus to the creation of a true information economy.
Skinner is the founder of Exosphere Academy. Exosphere Academy is a learning and problem solving community with 2-day traveling workshops and an 8-week residential program "to learn new skills, build exciting projects with other dynamic people, and jumpstart your new life & career." He is also the Founder and Chairman of Vaxios, which we'll discuss in detail in today's show.

- software as a private legal system
- markets as price discovery mechanism
- how to create a true information economy
