In the newest issue of my video-podcast MIT Pro­fes­sor Thomas W. Mal­one talks about his reasearch on col­lec­tive intel­li­gence and the chang­ing notion of pri­vacy. Pro­fes­sor Mal­one is the found­ing direc­tor of MIT’s Cen­ter for Col­lec­tive Intel­li­gence. In 2004, he pub­lished The Future of Work, a crit­i­cally acclaimed book about the impact of elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tion on man­age­ment, orga­ni­za­tions and busi­ness. Before he started teach­ing at MIT, Mr. Mal­one was a research sci­en­tist at the leg­endary Xerox Palo Alto Research Cen­ter. So enjoy the pod­cast which con­tains a short intro­duc­tion, the inter­view plus two exlu­sive bonus tracks :pimp:

About the inter­view: A1 Telekom invited Thomas Mal­one to Vienna. Last Wednes­day, I joined a table talk with Aus­trian blog­ger col­leagues. I did the inter­view after our dis­cus­sions — thanks for the great talk! Chat­ting with a fel­low opti­mist was very nice for a change (since these days every­body pre­dicts a new age of doom that social media will inflict upon us). I hope you enjoyed the video, and as always: opin­ions and com­ments are highly appreciated!
