The Takeaway:

Dan covered a lot of great points on the podcast, but here were the main three insights:

It’s the best time to be an investor when it’s a weird time to be an investor.

Tech is programming people.

With all of this information overload online, people are starting to equate experience with betrayal.

Favorite Quote:

“What you want in a joke is something everyone believes is true, but no one wants to say.”

“Technology right now is being used to program people, not the other way around.”

“Do you look at the network as a mob of people to manipulate, or a contributive ecosystem?”
