The "Changing Minds" Series: Episode 3 with Minds CEO Bill Ottman

The Technically Human Podcast

We are back with our third and final episode in the “Changing Minds” series! Across the 3 episodes, we focus on civil discourse, and we ask what it means to engage in dialogue with people with whom we disagree, sometimes deeply.  In the first two episodes, I spoke with Daryl Davis about racism, and how he envisions the possibility of changing the minds of those who believe, and participate in, white supremacist and separatist movements. In our third and final episode of the “changing minds” series, I sit down with Bill Ottman. Bill Ottman is the founder of Minds.com, a new community-owned, “open source” social media network that prizes privacy, transparency, and open exchange. We explore the advantages, and the challenges, of unfettered free speech, we talk about relationship between tech and civil discourse, and Bill talks about his vision of a social media ecosystem that can help pave the way toward creating a healthier and more vibrant national conversation—not in spite of our differences and distances, but because of them. In thinking about the ethics of technology, and in particular, its relationship to our moment of political, cultural, and ideological polarization, the ethics of technology extend far beyond how we use tech. Social media offers the potential for new connections, or new levels of disconnect and partisanship. The ethics and intentions we bring to social media matter, and our approach starts far before we ever sit down at our computer to respond to a Facebook post, or broadcast our views on Twitter. They start with how we imagine, and practice, civil discourse, how we think about meeting other folks where they are, considering the journey that led them to believe as they do. Here's part 3, with Bill Ottman Produced by Matt PerryArtwork by Desi Aleman

#011 - Bill Ottman: Internet Freedom, Social Media & Mindful Living

Educate Inspire Change With Kash Khan

Host Kash Khan interviews Bill Ottman, an internet entrepreneur, freedom of internet activist, and the CEO and co-founder of Minds, a free and open source networking service that rewards its users through the blockchain.  In this podcast, Bill talks about an array of topics from the importance of the internet transitioning to a transparent, open source, decentralized direction; to the similarities psychedelics and technology share through the interconnectedness it provides to the individuals who use them. The Educate Inspire Change Takeaway: “Biology and technology is symbiotic.” “Conversation minimizes violence, so if you’re restricting the conversation even though it may be with the intent of reducing hate speech or radicalization, that has a higher likelihood of causing violence and radicalization because you create all these people who think that they're victims, they’re pissed off that they’re censored, and they freak out.” “Our success is not dependent on someone else's failure… you can be successful by doing what you do well and there will be people who are attracted to that.” “By participating in bitcoin you are building a better system.” “I feel like taking psychedelics is like going to a teacher and figuring out what you need to do and the areas you need to work on.” Bullet Points (w/ time stamps) - Highlighting key topics discussed  2:37: Kash asks Bill to explain how he became involved in the technology field, and Bill talks about the platforms our technologies should be built on to ensure a user's freedoms. 8:41: Kash asks Bill why he thinks Facebook doesn't care about the creators and the platform, and after surmising his beliefs, Bill asks Kash the same question. 22:40: Kash asks Bill to talk more about how his networking website Minds works and how it rewards users with tokens, essentially paying users for their data through the revenue Minds generates.  31:00: Kash opens up the conversation for Bill to talk about his psychedelic experiences and what part they have played in his view of life, our planet, and technology. 45:47: Kash and Bill talk about artificial intelligence and the Open AI initiative that Elon Musk created, and the pros and cons Bill sees in it becoming a beautiful resource to help people or pharmaceutical and other companies corrupting the initiative.  56:52: Kash asks Bill to talk about where he believes the future of cryptocurrency lies, and Bill expresses his appreciation for the creator of Bitcoin as well as how cryptocurrency is integrated on his platform Minds. 1:07:43: Bill shares the last book that he read, which was a book of passages by Geroeg Orwell and how relevant they are today considering social media platforms have become silos of communication that are able to censor its users.  1:14:44: Bill talks about the feeling of interconnectedness that psychedelics give you is very similar to navigating through the internet by leaving traces and giving energy to thousands of places every single day.  1:18:00: Kash talks about the importance of intention and being thankful; both Bill and Kash begin discussing vegan and vegetarianism, and how the pace of eating or fasting influences the body and mind in ways similar to psychedelics. Find Bill at https://minds.com/ottman Sponsors: EcoLife Supplements  This podcast is proudly supported by EcoLife Supplements, Rythmia Life Advancement Center and our very own Psychedelic Documentary series PANTERA Whilst in Costa Rica last year I came across a guy by the name of Anthony Walsh who handed me a bottle of hemp extract CBD oil and after just taking a few drops I was sold. I immediately felt more relaxed and less stressed. I found the quality of my sleep improved and it even helped me with my meditation practices.  The reason this product stands out for me was Anthony himself is passionate about healing the world one person at a time and has personally invested thousands of hours researching CBD and cannabinoids in order to fully understand it and to help guide others to receive the maximum benefits.  Please visit https://ecolifesupplements.com/blog to learn more and make sure you get a 10% discount by using the coupon code inspirechange.  Currently delivering in the USA only.  Rythmia Life Advancement Center Rythmia Life Advancement Center is one of our first podcast sponsors and is a special place for me.
