She teaches at the Pratt Institute School of Information in NYC and serves on an international committee to develop IEEE standard 7000 for ethically-aligned AI. Join us as Pamela discusses the ways that our relationships with technology are shaped by our perception of its role, power, and purpose, the ways healthy people engage their tech, and how we can help guide the ongoing evolution of technology that becomes increasingly enmeshed in our lives.

20: The Joy of Shared Values, with Pivot for Humanity's Jumana Abu-Ghazaleh

“You have to earn the trust of people to share with you what it’s like to be them out in the world.” Jumana Abu-Ghazaleh is the Founder and President of Pivot for Humanity. This comes after a diverse and winding career in advertising, marketing, digital design, and entrepreneurship, which Jumana decided to synthesize into a mission focused on bringing ethical reform to the tech industry through professionalization: creating a body of shared community standards and oversight, just as medical and legal industries do. By creating a defined set of values, including ones of social responsibility, and a framework of shared accountability, Jumana believes that Pivot for Humanity’s mission can guide the evolution of the most influential industry -- technology -- in all our lives into one that honors the power and responsibility it holds in society. Key Takeaways: How the commercialization of the Web brought the concept of friction to the forefront of every aspect of commercial design- f...

19: The Joy of Being Mindful, with Harvard's Dr. Ellen Langer

Dr. Ellen Langer, a social psychology professor at Harvard University, is widely considered the “mother of mindfulness”, researching the topic since the 70’s. She has been the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, the American Psychological Association’s Award for Distinguished Contributions to Psychology in the Public Interest, the Liberty Science Center Genius Award, the Distinguished Contributions of Basic Science to Applied Psychology award from the American Association of Applied and Preventive Psychology, the James McKeen Cattel Award, and the Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize.

In this episode Dr. Langer shares what mindfulness really is, how we can get there, and how it can help us get through this and every moment with more joy. Key Takeaways What mindfulness really is (hint: it’s not a practice or an ac...

18: The Joy of Getting Real About Work, with David Heinemeier Hansson

David Heinemeier Hansson is a leading mind in the tech world inspiring the world to reconsider it’s working relationship with, well, work. As the creator of the popular Ruby on Rails web development framework, co-founder & CTO at Basecamp -- a saner way to manage projects and communicate company-wide -- and bestselling author, along with Basecamp co-founder Jason Fried, of It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work, Rework (which is also the name of the Basecamp podcast) + Remote, a book arguing that the time is right for the expansion of remote work and how to navigate the pitfalls. Check out our interview with the one and only @DHH! Key Takeaways: - How allowing our expectations to continuously evolve and adapt is crucial to maintaining joy in an ever-changing reality - How creating healthy habits require self-reflection and honesty with ourselves about how “self-disciplined” and consistent we really can be, and why sometimes missing out is far easier than attempting to moderate - How...

17: What We Need to Do to Create a Better Internet, with Damian Bradfield

Damian Bradfield, Chief Creative Officer at WeTransfer and Author of the Trust Manifesto, on what we need to reclaim to create a better Internet for all. We’re at a very unusual moment in modern history, where a roughly equal number of generations alive today have either a lived experience of near-total personal privacy, and with it, great consumer power over the way they were marketed to- or a lived experience of nearly every experience, action, and statement being collected, analyzed, and sold as commodities by the entities selling us their goods, ideas, and policies, to the point that we can be offered something before we consciously know we want it. How did that happen? Damian Bradfield is the Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder of WeTransfer and WePresent, the author of The Trust Manifesto, host of the Influence podcast, and the creator of Empty Day. Damian’s file-sharing company WeTransfer sends over 1.5 million files a day. In 2016, he moved from Amsterdam to California t...

16: The Joy of Learning in Every Era, with Dr. Kate Tilleczek

Canadian researcher Kate Tilleczek, Canada Research Chair on Youth, Education & Global Good, addresses the impact of online education on child development, during COVID-19 and beyond. Because of the COVID-19 epidemic, millions more children than ever are learning at home- and online. But the transition to increasingly digital and online environments for youth education was happening, and as usual, it happened with little pause to consider how much digital is a good thing, and how the personal and physical can find a balance with the remote and digital to best serve learning and well-being. Dr. Tilleczek offers wise counsel to parents and educators everywhere: “With the pandemic, we really have a moment to reset, and see what makes the most sense for us as a society.” Key takeaways from this conversation: - How young people are processing their own immersion in digital channels of communication, socialization, and learning - How the social distancing-created explosion of remote lea...

15: Coming Closer in Crisis

Christina Crook on how Covid-19 has helped us leave the FOMO-fuelled Age of You behind. Welcome to the Age of Us. In this episode, we explore the many ways the COVID-19 crisis can teach us about ourselves- and joy. Just as we’ve had to give up expectations for normalcy when this began, we will have the privilege of deciding what to take with us back into ‘normal life’ and what to leave behind. What are you discovering matters to you a lot more than you thought it did? What do you barely miss at all? How are you holding it together? Can we finally move past FOMO? Maybe we already have. Key takeaways from this conversation: - How the end of the “decade of FOMO” bookends a crisis that’s making us take a hard look at what we really value - How we can show up for the responsibility of joy - How paying attention to what gives and takes joy in this difficult time can help us craft the best way to get through our days - How to come through this crisis with a better, clearer sense of w...

14: The Joy of Missing Out on Being An Internet Tycoon, with Glitch founder/CEO and JOMO creator Anil Dash

This episode has been a long time coming… but at the same time, I feel it’s happened exactly when it should. As we stand at the dawn of 2020, voices are being raised heralding the next decade as “the era of JOMO,” a decade of reassessing and renegotiating the excesses of social media, hyperconnection, and hustle of the past ten years. What was very recently regarded as fringe, unrealistic, or even ignorant criticism of the harm that a completely unconsidered shotgun wedding to technology might bring has begun to be seen as synonymous with wellness, and even human rights. It was early in that decade that Anil Dash, today the founder and CEO of modular app design startup Glitch, coined the term that brought both the title of my first book and all the work I’ve done in the years since into bright focus: JOMO. The Joy Of Missing Out. https://anildash.com/2012/07/19/jomo/ Anil has gone from pioneer of the digital wilderness to townie of the now-ubiquitous web to ombudsman of the dig...
