Byron Reese is one of these super-geniuses that creates businesses that make a huge impact on culture, and the way we use the Internet. Byron has started and successfully run multiple companies, toured the world over and over, and still found time to be something of an inventor, philosopher, and author. I have the privilege of having a few discussions with him at a conference a few years ago, and I hope that we can have more chats to come.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMzAueHYqA4&]
In this episode of the TWIT podcast recorded at the NAB of 2012, he explains how and why the world is becoming a better place thanks to technology. While many others are concerned that tech will be humanity’s downfall, he is almost certain of the exact opposite. It’s encouraging to hear a relevant opinion that is thought-through and backed by reason and logic.
What’s especially interesting are his thoughts about world hunger, the economy, poverty, and war. I highly recommend you take the time to watch this episode and think about Byron’s point of view. It will probably take some of the weight of the world off of your shoulders.
