Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World - Interview with co-author Steven Kotler
At 1:08, Steven discusses how Bold is a spin-off from Abundance, which shows where the world could be in the next few decades. At 2:12, he talks about how tech companies are growing exponentially – literally doubling in power every few months, using Moore’s Law as an example. At 2:53, Steven discusses the inverse effect, where companies like Kodak are missing the boat. Did you know that Kodak actually invented the digital camera? Listen to Steven talk about that at the 3:20 mark. At 4:45 Steven discusses Singularity University and how they leverage exponential technology to go after grand world technology using crowd-powered tools. At the 6:08 mark, Ross and Steven talk about Richard Foster’s work at Yale -- about how, in 10 years, companies that used to be on the Fortune 500, will be companies you’ve never heard of. From 9:20-12:16, Steven discusses the exponential framework that backs up the book. At 14:40, Ross and Steven talk about how new technology becoming available to third-world countries will bring 3 billion new minds “online.” Rounding out the interview, at 17:30, Ross asks Steven which big technologies he and his partners have their eyes on, and where are all the jobs coming from (or ceasing to exist).
