The Web Ahead #108: Improving Humanity with Pamela Pavliscak

October 27, 2015 at 12:15PM • 1 hour 24 minutes

We often focus on improving user experience — making it easier for people to use the sites and products we create. But when do we get to focus on a bigger picture? Are we making true improvements to people's lives? Are they happier because they use our work? Pamela Pavliscak has been deeply researching this question. What does it take to improve humanity? How are different generations being affected differently? What will life look like for our children?

Hosted by Jen Simmons.

October 27, 2015 at 5:00AM • 1 hour 42 minutes

This week, Bill is on his honeymoon in Europe, so we’re doing another Q&A show that we actually recorded last week before he left. Ironically, we did the show on Back to the Future Day, which means that while we were recording it for the future, you’re really listening to it in the past. Science!

Hosted by Bill Wadman & Jeffery Saddoris.
