    In advance of the upcoming release of The Last Jedi, excitement is building for all things Star Wars, so I'm thrilled to share that I got to be a guest on the inestimable Star Wars Minute podcast. The show tackles the world's most popular franchise one movie at a time, one minute at a time, and I was lucky enough to get to comment on everybody's second-to-least-favorite Star Wars movie, Attack of the Clones.

    It was really a joy to be on Star Wars Minute, and every one of these short conversations was amusing the whole way through — please do give them a listen!

    4th Day of November…

    I struggled for a long time when the nice folks at the Heat Rocks podcast asked me which Prince album I'd want to talk about on their show. Oliver Wang and Morgan Rhodes run an amazing podcast, where every episode is a deep-dive into a classic album.

    Ultimately, because of its significance and relative lack of prominence amongst casual fans, I settled on Prince's 1982 classic, 1999. In the finished show, we talk about everything from how Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson were influenced by the sound of 1999 to my own personal revelations about faith, as inspired by discovering that Prince didn't actually write the Lord's Prayer.

    If you ain't busy for the next 45 minutes, please do check out this wonderful conversation!

    Speaking at the Obama Foundation Summit

    I've been fortunate enough to get to speak at a lot of events over the years, in front of an amazing variety of audiences around the world. But I can honestly say I've never been more impressed by the reaction of an audience member than in the panel I hosted earlier today.

    We had an amazing discussion about the tactics and impacts of misinformation in social media, with Joan Donovan of Data & Society and Nabiha Syed of BuzzFeed speaking to the social responsibility of the major platforms.

    But the standout moment was when Barack Obama quietly joined our room, and sat in for half an hour, even taking notes on the discussion. Most of the room didn't even notice he was there until he had to leave a bit before the end, and paused to share a few thoughts with us.

    I encouraged him to look into the work published by experts like Joan and Nabiha, and to truly get a deep understanding of the dynamics in play, since so much of the political conversation around these serious issues devolves into glib and trite discussions of "fake news". Just knowing that a voice of such influence and power is willing to hear what these experts has to say gives me a little bit of hope that we might be able to make things a bit better.

    The bar is so damn low.

    It's always great to reconnect with old friends, and that especially holds true for old Internet friends. That must be why it was such a delight to spend some time chatting with Ana Marie Cox, as a guest on "With Friends Like These".

    (And, as we reference in this show, this is my 2014 piece on why I stopped retweeting men.)

    We’re just trying to be non-terrible!

    This was so fun! I got another chance to host the Stack Overflow podcast, and this time did it in fine style with Jess Lee and Ben Halpern of the Practical Dev joining in for the festivities. Do give it a listen!

    Dig, If U Will…

    I was delighted to get to talk to Ben Greenman for an episode of "Dig If You Will The Podcast," his series in honor of his book "Dig If You Will The Picture". We go deep into Prince's influence on transforming the music industry, and if you like it, you should check out Ben's book, too.

    Oh, and of course, we talk about my favorite floppy of all time — the disc Prince sent out with a custom font when he changed his name to his famous unpronounceable symbol.

    On Being and Tech’s Moral Reckoning 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Back in November, I got to sit down with the amazing Krista Tippett for a lengthy interview in front of an incredibly warm crowd in Easton, MD. Now, that interview has been edited down and is available as the latest episode of Krista's hugely popular show, On Being.
    I hope you'll take a listen — we cover the contemporary tech industry, the social impact of the major social networks, and even the bigger reckoning with how tech is changing our families and or kids and our relationships. I'm really proud of how this came out, and can't wait to hear what you think. And, of course, if you're interested in more on the topic, you can check out my Humane Tech series on Medium.

    If you are interested, there's also a full, 90-minute unedited version of the conversation. With Krista and her team coming from Minneapolis, the Prince mentions you might expect from me are in the uncut version.
