Episode 120: Under the Radar
Carolyn and Seth welcome back Dave Sobel, host of the Business of Tech podcast. The three talk about technology topics that are flying under the radar but could have big implications ahead. First, they discuss the digital divide within the tech industry--how the issues that make headlines from the tech giants are not always the issues being faced by the average tech firm, and how the seemingly simple solutions often require massive resources. Second, they cover the non-technical skills needed for success in technology today. As technology continues to have significant influence on other industries, there is more of a need for roles such as legal expertise or ethical considerations. Finally, they wrap the conversation with a discussion on tech weariness. As society comes out of the pandemic where technology has been heavily utilized, there is some desire to lessen tech usage and make sure that technology use is balanced rather than simply assuming that more is better.
