The Deep Roots of the Current Information* Crisis – Skinner Layne and Moritz Bierling – Part 2 of 3 [PODCAST #571]

Play

* I'm using the word "information" very loosely.

Skinner Layne and Moritz Bierling are back for a deeper drive into the current digital malaise and its varied and complicated roots. This malaise includes "fake news," information (or input) overload, social media fatigue, loss of privacy, no data ownership, etc...

Skinner is the founder of Exosphere Academy and Moritz, formerly the Director of Research, now serves as an advisor. 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."

In our previous discussion we talked about an infinite game approach to the current digital crisis. In our upcoming discussion we'll finally dig into what Vaxios is and how it will approach a solution to these problems.

DISCUSSION:
- Information overload, or "input overload" - can we adapt?
- revisiting Skinner's "three children of The Enlightenment" - fascism, communism and consumerism, and how consumerism will end
- how the illusion of democracy contributes to input overload
- news poisoning?
- a brief history of democracy as a tool of mass manipulation
- politics has corrupted most digital spaces
- is everything you consume on the internet an advertisement?
- the pursuit of illusory ideals
- a debate on tribalism - is there a way to embrace tribe membership or do we need to work to abandon it entirely?
