Digital Capitalism

August 3, 2018          

Episode Summary

On The Digital Life this week, we chat about capitalism and the problems that it causes as we’re creating a digital future. Digital capitalism, as it stands, is not only an extension of an unfair and oppressive system, it’s actually making things worse. If indeed technology is leverage, we’re not using it for solving the right problems. We may have Fair Trade coffee, but we certainly don’t have Fair Trade mobile phones, software, or digital services. Join us as we discuss.

Digital Citizenship

February 23, 2018          

Episode Summary

On The Digital Life podcast this week, we chat about Estonia’s E-Residency program, which encourages entrepreneurs to become virtual residents of the country, so they can have a European company. It’s a really interesting and innovative way to think about citizenship, basically ignoring geography, but leveraging it at the same time. It’s not unusual for countries to sell their citizenship, including the US, but this is slightly different. If innovators and entrepreneurs can go anywhere they want in the world to find the best deal, best benefits, or the like, what does that mean for the future of nation states? Join us as we discuss.
