The outrage economy [Video]

Hello from 20 Minutes into the Future. Busy week so I have to skip the usual newsletter approach. This video was shot on 12th October, 2018 at re:develop. It’s the first time I delivered my talk on the outrage economy.

Social media profits come from ad revenue. Sadly we engage more when we're angry. How can we create platforms that benefit our well-being?

If you read the letter chain on the topic (part 1, part 2, part 3) then you’ll be familiar with the ideas but you might still get a kick out of the talk. I’m much funnier live.
