Will You Be A Part of Change Or A Victim Of It? Brian Solis interview w/ Cenk Uygur

In YouTube Posts by Hlarson2 Comments


Futurist, change management specialist and “X: The Experience When Business Meets Design” author Brian Solis sits down with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur to talk about the past, present and future and how more and faster change is coming, and the only question is whether you’re going to be a part of that change or a victim of it.

Along the way, the two discuss how disruptive technologies and changing cultural standards will affect the news business, city planning, transportation and nearly every other aspect of how we live our lives.

Specifically, Uygur and Solis address:

– Why it’s not so terrible that people engage with their phones more than with one another face-to-face
– Why Apple, a company that never designed a remote control, will soon revolutionize what a remote control can do.
– How legacy-based decision making is killing both the taxi and TV news businesses
– Why Cenk says he’s more afraid of a random kid in Nebraska than all the cable news organizations in the world.

  1. It is fascinating that Brian has optimized the presentation of his ideas in the form of a book — the oldest mass-produced information technology. This reinforces the importance of user-centric design which can be used to greatly expand the power of any technology.

  2. This was a very confirming interview. It focused on the bigger picture. I was very excited to see this and I am excited to see it grow. The facts are laid out. I will order your book.
