Salt Flats Innovation Podcast
by Rod Collins
8M ago
NTSB teams don’t filter data to fit their theories; they adapt their theories to fit the facts. They understand that the laws of physics have no regard for the egos and the opinions of experts overly invested in their own thinking. This understanding could greatly improve our social discourse if Big Tech could learn to adopt the mindset of the NTSB. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices ..read more

Rules are important because they serve as guideposts for reliable social interaction. Rules are practical tools for maintaining order in complex societies.

What if the tech companies redesigned their algorithms to identify what’s most important to differing perspectives by honoring the principle that all voices matter, hearing all points of view without prejudice, and integrating the best elements of all perspectives into innovative breakthrough solutions that could move us beyond our differences?

by Rod Collins

One of the great ironies of the digital revolution is how social media platforms have managed to divide us into a collection of fractious tribes that are wholly incapable of even basic compromises. This fomenting tribalism has become troublesome as mutual accusations of bias among all the various clans have justified a plummet into a lack of basic civil behavior. How is it that technological innovations that held so much promise for broadening human horizons have instead amplified the worst attributes of human nature? But more importantly, what can we do to restore the promise? Learn more abou ..read more

Today, rather than being a model of an innovative company, Google appears to be regressing into one of the most authoritarian companies the world has ever seen by  succumbing to the temptation of centralized power and embracing the worst aspects of bureaucratic behavior.
