Yuval joined @tristanharris and @aza on @HumaneTech_’s #YourUndividedAttention podcast to talk about how technology and democracy have evolved together over the course of human history, from palaeolithic tribes to nation-states, and where we go from here.

Quoted @HumaneTech_

Best-selling author of 'Sapiens', @harari_yuval gives us a two-million-year perspective on today’s headlines in one of our most timely and comprehensive #YourUndividedAttention podcast episodes to date. We're thrilled to share it with you (~2 hr. listen):

LISTEN: Important new episode of #YourUndividedAttention w/ @harari_yuval, author of Sapiens & 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.

@aza, Yuval and I break new philosophical ground together on creating shared reality, A.I. sidekicks, and protopian futures.

Usually @harari_yuval and I get trapped in dystopian conversations about A.I. undermining human weaknesses.

But in this rare interview, we think through possibilities and that are not all dystopian. In fact the less dystopian ones are just the hardest to imagine. Listen in!

Quoted @HumaneTech_

This week, the whole world witnessed the consequences of a broken, yet highly-profitable business model that rewards self-reinforcing cycles of outrage, rumors, and political and racial division.

The @SocialDilemma_ predicts a future that doesn't have to be true.

In order to avoid more events like January 6th’s attack on the Capitol, we must collectively wake up from the digital spell cast by 10+ years of social media’s warping of our minds. Full stmt from @HumaneTech_:

Our @HumaneTech_ Co-Founder & ED Randy Fernando went on @DanBHarris' @10Percent Happier podcast, to share how mindfulness, and his lifelong connection to meditation informs our work on humane technology.

The new film #CodedBias by our brilliant friend @shalinikantayya investigates the discrimination embedded in technology, showing how technology is never neutral.

One of the things I appreciate about @JonHaidt's work is his level-headed, calm analysis of the data and facts to really investigate what's happening. Listen below for a taste, and share the podcast with others:

Quoted @HumaneTech_

In this episode of #YourUndividedAttention with NYU social psychologist @JonHaidt, we examine the mechanics of manipulation that have led to a generation wide shift in mental health harms. Listen, share, and start a conversation with your family.

Kids are on the front lines dealing with the harms described in #TheSocialDilemma every day.

Share & listen to our new interview w/ @JonHaidt and join the movement of parents & teens who want to address this problem. Hopefully w/ the help of a new Biden administration! 🇺🇸

Quoted @RealTimers

We hereby claim Friday night at 10PM for a new episode of #RealTime with @BillMaher. Furthermore, this weeks guests will be @TristanHarris, @brooks_rosa + @MalcolmNance! Legal observers will be permitted to legally observe on @HBO.

I'll be joining HBO's RealTime with @billmaher tonight to talk about social media's influence on the U.S. election, our heightened polarization and #TheSocialDilemma.

Can't think of a more important moment to have this conversation.

The quote I read @joerogan at the end is from Neil Postman's "Amusing Ourselves to Death" contrasting George Orwell & Huxley's contrasting dystopias to avoid:

"Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us.
Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us."

Quoted @joerogan

I had a fascinating and sobering discussion with @tristanharris of @netflix’s The Social Dilemma about the impact of social media on the future of the human race. Enjoy!

I really enjoyed doing this in-depth interview with @joerogan yesterday. If you’re familiar with #TheSocialDilemma I especially recommend watching through the 2nd half where we get into the accumulating dominance of A.I. over human weaknesses— from virtual chatbots to GPT-3.

Quoted @KeatonPatti

I forced a bot to read over 1,000 hours of QAnon theories and then asked it to write QAnon theories of its own. Here they are.

But how do we know *for sure* a bot really wrote these?

What if some of them are real, but were mixed in with “fake” conspiracies just to make us dismiss them? ;)

Quoted @SpencerJCox

I’m not sure this has ever been done before...but as our national political dialogue continues to decline, my opponent @PetersonUtah and I decided to try something different. We can disagree without hating each other. Let’s make Utah an example to the nation. #StandUnited #utpol

Opposing candidates running for governor of Utah offer a joint message on rebuilding civility, decency for how we elect future leaders. We can disagree without hating each other.

This is how you do it. #StandUnited

Quoted @nytimes

James Randi, a magician who dedicated his life to debunking claims of paranormal powers, has died at 92.

Very sad to lose one of our magician heroes today, James Randi. He was a true champion for reason & science, debunking hucksters who maliciously exploited the minds of the vulnerable.

Everyone should watch his excellent documentary, "An Honest Liar":
