Best selling author Po Bronson has written deeply, often hilariously, about Silicon Valley and its effects on the world. After founding San Francisco’s Writers Grotto, he wrote such books as The Nudist on the Late Shift, Bombardiers, and What Should I Do With My life?. Today, he’s a venture capitalist at IndieBio – the Life Sciences accelerator.
In this episode, Po discusses why 2019 feels like 1994, and what happens when daytime and nighttime conversations converge in Silicon Valley. We also cover income inequality – the idea of ‘Basic Universal Equity”, and the futures of sports, medicine and…libraries. But that’s just the beginning – stay tuned to hear what happens when climate change, biotech and automation converge. And the big finish: whether our species will survive.
In the Something Ventured podcast Silicon Valley insider Kent Lindstrom explores the reality behind the Silicon Valley headlines as he sits down with the people who are shaping the way we view the world online...and beyond.
