Introducing David Kadavy with one of his most influential reads. Namely, Understanding Media by Marshall McLuhan.
Costa read David's Design For Hackers in 2010, and found it one of the most useful and impactful book's he's ever read. He tries, in this clip, to make David blush and almost succeeds.
And, here's the book: Design For Hackers
When MIT, and Harvard, and many other universities began putting their courseware online for free, Costa thought we might just see an explosion of competence around the world... Alas, we didn't. But why?
David describes the modern state of tools and resources for authors. David, in particular, has focused on creativity and productivity in his writing, and offers his insights and thoughts on what automation will mean to us.
David recounts his life's journey, starting in Ohama, Nebraska. His love of learning was always the driving force in his own self-discovery, his career, life's passions, and his work.
Who are you? is a question we should all ask, and we should seek true answers with courage.
David is working on the third book in a trilogy called
Getting Art Done. The third book will be on finishing things. Here is the series: Getting Art Done
Costa recounts starting small in building his fitness habits. Is there a lesson here in finishing small as a way to learn to finish things? David adds his concept of the,
minimum creative dose, and the power of incubation.
David comments on the conversation, as of late, on Twitter, the politics of which might be divisive, but the consequences of where we go from here, as a society, could be transformational. What might we focus on? What are the challenges that deserve our attention? And what kind of attention should we approach the public conversation with?
