The Downsides of Data
Wednesday, 24 April
On today's show we talk with Clive Thompson, the author of "Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World." We discuss why Coders were such a focus for him, and given all the recent news about Facebook and our personal data, it wasn't hard to figure out why he has such an intense focus on them. Data and surveillance are one of the biggest issues of our time. Product teams, product leaders, coders, designers, data scientists - these are the people that can help fix it. They are the people that can help move is in a better direction. I hope you’re able to walk away from this today and feel comfortable that what you’re working on, what you’re bringing into the world, has a net positive impact for the greater good.
