Forecasting the Future of Tech with Scott Belsky

Where It Happens

How will work and life change in a material way over the next 5 years? That one line, written by guest Scott Belsky (@scottbelsky), was enough to get hosts Sahil Bloom (@sahilbloom) and Greg Isenberg (@gregisenberg) to immediately invite the successful entrepreneur and investor onto Where It Happens. But, what started as an exploration of exploding trends turned into a conversation that resulted in, at least, three potential game-changing business ideas. If you're looking to place bets on the future -- or create the next unicorn -- this podcast will leave you with endless opportunities.--------------------------------------Want more community?

598: Reinventing the Digital Landscape with Scott Belsky

As Told By Nomads

In today's episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and Scott Belsky as we speak about what works and what doesn't work in reinventing today's digital landscape. As he recalls his experience on getting an MBA, Scott admits, the value of dropping out would've probably been greater than the value of actually getting it. For him, the elements of genuine impact in a society boil down to creativity and initiative—with or without an MBA. The Great ReassessmentDuring the start of the pandemic, lockdowns were gradually put into place from region to region. Because of this, most people turned to alternative mediums to keep their business going and start new businesses. One media that's an excellent example of that is Tiktok. Because contact was limited, many startup companies and SMEs leveraged the marketing capabilities and reach of the video-sharing app. But how did it all work in an app where everyone is basically just dancing?The formula came with this generation of workers turning their back on the traditional. Because workers saw firsthand how their so-called "secure jobs" didn't secure most of them, this generation of professionals has let go of the corporate dream. As a result, this movement redirected the "dream career" hustle away from tradition and towards whatever aligns with purpose and values. The change we're seeing in the corporate field today is a product of people resigning after a resounding reassessment of what really is vital in a career.Outline of the episode:[04:24]Creativity is what makes the world interesting[08:24]Self-awareness is one of the greatest…[12:57]Where is the creative industry going with this rapid change?[17:58]How can you tell if technological advancement is successful or not?[20:51] We're all born artists; the struggle is to remain an artist. [29:26]Scott Belsky – on crypto, NFTs, and the meme culture[37:31]The value of having an MBA[40:47] What impact makers can expect from an industry of traditional institutionsResources:Website: http://www.scottbelsky.com/Making Ideas Happen, Book: https://www.amazon.com/Making-Ideas-Happen-Overcoming-Obstacles/dp/1591844118/The Messy Middle, Book: https://www.amazon.com/Messy-Middle-Finding-Through-Hardest/dp/0735218072/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=Connect with Tayo Rockson and the As Told By Nomads Podcast on:Personal Website: https://tayorockson.comUYD Management: https://uydmanagement.com/UYD Collective: https://tayorockson.com/uyd-collectiveLinkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tayorockson Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcastTwitter: https://twitter.com/TayoRockson See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Adobe's Scott Belsky on how NFTs will change creativity

Decoder with Nilay Patel

Adobe is one of those companies that I don’t think we pay enough attention to — it’s been around since 1982, and the entire creative economy runs through its software. You don’t just edit a photo, you Photoshop it. We spend a lot of time on Decoder talking about the creator economy, but creators themselves spend all their time working in Adobe’s tools. On this episode, I’m talking to Scott Belsky, chief product officer at Adobe, about the new features coming to their products, many of which focus on collaboration, and about creativity broadly — who gets to be a creative, where they might work, and how they get paid.TranscriptLinks:NFTs Explained Adobe brings a simplified Photoshop to the webAdobe is adding a collaborative mood board to Creative CloudSoon you can use Photoshop to prepare your art as an NFTThe Dog Ramps TweetThe Furry Lisa, CryptoArt, & The New Economy Of Digital CreativityA $120,000 Banana Is Peeled From an Art Exhibition and EatenAdobe and Twitter are designing a system for permanently attaching artists’ names to pictures"I still own you" clipCredits:Decoder is a production of The Verge, and part of the Vox Media Podcast Network.

Business: The Messy Middle - Scott Belsky

Wiser Than Yesterday

The Messy middle by Scott Belsky Most startup stories describe the most romantic parts of a venture, from starting in a garage or college dorm to successfully doing a multi-billion dollar IPO. Scott Belsky, who is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, Chief Product Officer at Adobe, and product advisor to many of today's top start-ups, goes about it differently. He dedicates this book to the messy middle, the middle stretch, which is the least talked about, but probably the most important part of any venture. The book is broken into 3 sections Endure the roller coaster of successes and failures Optimize what’s working Finish strong Sam and Nico's ratings Sam - 6/10 Nico - 6/10
