How To Fix The Future With Andrew Keen – This Week's Six Pixels Of Separation Podcast

Episode #608 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Mirum Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

Even when he takes a pop at me (which he does… and it’s probably not all that lovingly), I really enjoy my conversations and debates with Andrew Keen. It used to be a lot easier to call him a contrarian to everything that was happening in Silicon Valley. After all, his bestselling books, The Cult of the Amateur, Digital Vertigo and The Internet Is Not The Answer earned him the dubious title of “the anti-Christ of Silicon Valley.” His latest book, How To Fix The Future, is still controversial but it’s more optimistic (if we do something with the contents of it) about how this might all play out.

How does technology our culture and digital media push forward with so much creative destruction and the problems that have arisen as we all connect? Andrew is executive director of the Silicon Valley innovation salon FutureCast and a public speaker. He is the host of Keen On show, a TechCrunch chat show, and was named one of the “100 Most Connected Men” in 2015 by GQ magazine. Enjoy the conversation…
