I had Navajo artist Shonto Begay on for his second episode of Art Dealer Diaries. I love Shonto because he's not only a wonderful artist that I've collected for a long time in my own home, but also because he's a truly mystical individual. Shonto has this innate ability to channel the earth and his heritage into his work, and then infuse his own cr…
 
It's clear from the growth of Patreon, Substack, TikTok, Clubhouse and many more that the power of the Creator Economy continues to build. These platforms share one thing in common: They all enable independent creators to monetize their skills and products like never before. It's a trend that’s become increasingly relevant as the demand for virtual…

When you hear stories about Amazon's "invention machine" -- which led to a company with not just one or two products but several successful diverse lines of business -- we often hear about things like: Memos, six pages exactly and no powerpoints at all!; or, the idea of just "work backwards from the press release"; and other such "best practices"..…
 
Dr. Tricia Loscher and I did a podcast back in December, I've been fortunate enough to be a co-curator with Tricia on the major Maynard Dixon exhibit "Maynard Dixon's American West" and she wrote the foreword for my Dixon book.

Kevin Macpherson took time a month ago from his painting schedule to Zoom with me on the podcast.

In recent years, there’s been a shift in how we think about psychedelics – from drugs of abuse and recreation, to powerful drugs for treating neuropsychiatric conditions such as depression, addiction, and PTSD. But there’s still a lot we don't know about how they work, and how we can maximize their therapeutic benefits while minimizing their advers…
 
Dr. Larry Peterson joined me for a podcast in November.

The rise of developers -- as buyers, as influencers, as a creative class -- is a direct result of "software eating the world", and of key shifts in IT from on-prem to cloud & SaaS to the API economy, where application programming interfaces are essentially building blocks for innovation. Developers therefore not only play an outsized role in high-p…
 
All about section 230 of the Communications Decency Act -- in what Wired senior writer (and host of the Get Wired podcast) described as "one of the clearest-but-still-nuanced explainers I've heard - worth listening to". So what does and doesn't it say? How does this law play out against broader questions and debates around platforms, content modera…

I had Forbes and Essential West writer Chadd Scott on the podcast today. Chadd is such an energetic person that it's hard not to get revved up when I get to talk to someone that is even more enthusiastic about art than I am, and it's hard to find because I really love art. Whether it's collecting, seeing art, or being around artists. Chadd has that…
 
"In a year that left us speechless, 2020 has been filled with new words unlike any other”... so it's unprecedented that for the first time, the Oxford English Dictionary did NOT name a word of the year. But do we really need the dictionaries to tell us what our words of the year are? Especially if the approaches "Big Word" takes may be based on mor…

How does this new …

The intersection of social and finance—as well as shifting attitudes around what we share about money online—have given way to an ambitious new wave of financial products.

There's a few ontologies for describing the phases leaders -- and their startups -- go through, whether it's product-sales-etc. or pioneer to settler. In any case, as companies evolve, so must the leaders -- but can the same person transition across all these phases? When and when not; what are the qualities, criteria, and tradeoffs to be made? In …
 
I had William Haskell on the podcast today and it's interesting - all of these podcasts I do have common threads running through them which you can pick up, in this case, it happens to be one that I hear from many artists.

A vaccine for COVID seems to be (almost) here… or is it? What’s hype/ what’s real beyond the headlines (and beyond the press release), when it comes to the announcement last week from Pfizer and BioNTech that their vaccine candidate was found to be more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 -- and relatedly, the most recent news around Moderna'…
 
I had John Coleman Cowboy Artist of America on the podcast today. John is just such a deep, interesting human being.

John had to go through finding that artistic voic…
