Episode 16: 19th April 2018

Episode 16, and this week we are discussing the virtual world. In a time when the lines between virtual and reality can sometimes get blurred we ponder social media presence, online events, sending things into space. It’s a kind of magic.

Our topical discussion came about following recent events surrounding Facebook and the seemingly radical decision by JD Weatherspoon to delete all of their social media accounts. Whether it’s a crazy decision or part of a new trend remains to be seen and we discuss some of the rationale behind this move.

Keeping things ‘online’ we explore a number of online events taking place over the coming weeks.

After pausing for a quick update on our podcast homework we move into our reviews section this week where we discuss our experience of virtual meetings or ‘hangouts’ as the cool kids might say. Taking the opportunity to connect with others via the internet has had a significant impact on the way we do business.

And finally, our business Guru for this week is the business magnate, engineer and eye-wateringly wealthy business founder Elon Musk. topically famous for sending a car into space Mr Musk seems to be adept at influencing, inspiring and motivating others to carry out some of his ‘crazy’ ideas.

With a number of quotes to his name we  particularly like the following:

”I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.”

”People should pursue what they are passionate about. That will make them happier than pretty much anything else.”
