Continue to enjoy and learn from your Podcasts. As previously stated, I am 80.5 years, an analog of the first order and deeply challenged by the digital arena. Finally plowed my way through the iTunes maze for sign up/registration and wrote a review under nickname: trdrtom.
I am not certain that it was accepted. Please let me know. It is almost one year since I communicated with Blair Hull. I will take another swing at that challenge. Am starting to reread your three books on my iPAD.
Interesting clip you got in this one [from Feynman ep 366]. It reminded me [of] something Jay Forrester mentioned in some paper that he thought that computer technology advances that were made between 1946 to 1956 were greatest and nothing of that growth was matched in any subsequent decades.
Michael Covel speaks with Nir Eyal. Eyal is an educator, author, and entrepreneur who is all about connecting psychology, technology, and business. His new book is titled “Hooked: How To Build Habit Forming Products”. Covel and Eyal discuss how behavior and habits can be engineered, and how technology changes our behavior; the moral implications of habit forming activities; the difference between habits and addictions; breaking “the hook”; the four areas that “the hook” goes through: trigger, action, variable reward, and investment; the IKEA example and how value can be built; Eyal’s mentors and influences; the importance of social feedback from your community; the WhatsApp deal, and how to deal with your “insane jealousy” of the messaging app deal; getting equal pay for equal work, and how that might be embedded in our DNA; and the importance of interface changes when it comes to revolutionary changes in technology.
