S02E20: How to embrace the chaos of the internet to build your MVP with David Weinberger, HBR Author
Show Notes

Every once in a while, it’s important for us to zoom out a little to see the big picture. So we took a little break from the practical aspects of company building on this episode to talk about the future. 

How is the future changing with AI and the internet? What does this mean for entrepreneurs looking to create lasting companies? 

These are the questions that we look to answer on the latest episode of the podcast with David Weinberger, renowned Harvard Business School researcher, technologist, philosopher, and the author of Everyday Chaos: Technology, Complexity, and How We're Thriving in a New World of Possibility.

David talks to us about how the way founders build products has fundamentally changed with the Minimum Viable Product. Butterfly effects on the internet, the hidden biases in artificial intelligence, and why we should be concerned about it.
