Flicker Co-Founder Stewart Butterfield Talks About How Internet changed Our Lives
The talk lasts 20 minutes and there is a Q&A of equal length afterwards that is, for once, a perfect complement to Butterfield’ speech, thanks to pertinent questions and great answers. [A big thank you to Maria Popova for advising to keep watching after the talk.]
A small warning before you start: Butterfield talks almost as fast as he thinks (almost), the sliders only stay few seconds on the screen and after four minutes the sound gets bad for few minutes. In other words: hold on tight to your headphones or watch it twice, it really worths it.
If you don’t have time to watch the entire talk, Butterfield shared an interview of Louis C.K. at Conan’s where the actor talks, with wit and to the point, about our spoiled generation that needs to learn to appreciate technology. It’s hilarious, brief, and a good start to think about the matter.[thanks to curiosity counts]
