The Misfit Economy
August 7th, 2015 by Michael Sauers

Alexa Clay – The Misfit Economy
Recorded in Los Angeles, July 2015

The Misfit Economy is a book that argues that lessons in creativity, innovation, salesmanship, and entrepreneurship can come from surprising places: pirates, bootleggers, counterfeiters, hustlers, and others living and working on the margins of business and society.

The book investigates the stories of underground innovation that make up the Misfit Economy. It examines the teeming genius of the underground. It asks: Who are these unknown visionaries? How do they work? How do they organize themselves? How do they catalyze innovation? And ultimately, how can you take these lessons into your own world?

William Gibson - Politics & Prose
July 10th, 2015 by Michael Sauers

In line with my earlier William Gibson post…

To mark the thirtieth anniversary of his uncannily prescient Neuromancer, Gibson, dubbed “the god of speculative fiction,” takes his vision of cyberspace to a new level with this thriller about a brother and sister, drugs, and a game involving peripherals—quasi-human drone bodies—that would be deadly to lose

Panti
July 3rd, 2015 by Michael Sauers

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Ireland’s foremost “gender discombobulist”, Panti, shares her experience of the little, everyday things that can have a huge impact on the wellbeing of gay people. Panti expresses her thoughts on navigating a world in which the simple act of holding hands can be a political statement in itself.

Panti is Ireland’s foremost “gender discombobulist” and “accidental activist”. She was also presented with an Irish ‘People of the Year’ award in 2014. Panti’s creator Rory O’Neill sparked a national furore when he appeared on national television and named certain individuals and organisations as homophobic. When Panti took to the stage of the National Theatre to defend herself, her ten minute oration became an international sensation.
