News from the Future: Issue #1
In This Issue:
  • Intro to the Newsletter
  • Now Playing on M&M
  • Most Insightful Articles of the Week

Welcome to the first issue of the MIND & MACHINE Newsletter!
With so much happening across so many fields, it can be overwhelming to try staying on top of it all. We’ll comb the digital world for the most revealing and insightful looks into how our technological future is taking shape — and have it ready for you first thing Saturday mornings as a roundup of the week (or two weeks in some cases, will only send when there’s enough good stuff to share).
We will work super hard to make it a valuable part of your information stream. If you ever see ways we can make this better, I would love to hear your thoughts (just hit reply).
Normally this top section will be for my personal thoughts and insights into how the world is changing and ways it might play out in the future. With our inaugural issue this week, I wanted to kick off with a welcome letter and notes on what to expect. Starting next week we’ll dive into the substance.
Section two each week will be any new videos, podcasts or articles from the MIND & MACHINE studio, interviews and thoughtful explorations into transformational technologies and influential trends taking shape. Then finally our curated collection of the most interesting and most important stories of the week. The editorial team here reads a massive amount every day on tech and futurism — we’ll filter and share with you the best to save you time while keeping you on top of what matters.
Super excited to be on this journey together, thanks for joining us!

Quick synopsis: #AI is the electricity of the future, 50% of jobs won’t exist in the near future. From this stems a conversation on what makes us human, and the crisis of purpose we will run into when iterative work is done.
