Episode 5: Andrew Keen

Episode 5: Andrew Keen

Andrew Keen, the self-professed Anti-Christ of Silicon Valley, is the author of The Cult of the Amateur: How Blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and the Rest of Today’s User-Generated Media are Destroying Our Economy, Our Culture, and Our Values and, more recently, Digital Vertigo: How Today’s Online Social Revolution is Dividing, Diminishing, and Disorienting Us. Our conversation touches on social media, community, the amorphous nature of values , and whether The Conversation, as a concept, has any merit at all. This conversation has a slew of connections and contrasts with earlier episodes and Andrew’s discussion of futurism and community are worth considering next to Max More and Colin Camerer, respectively.
