Never before have we had the opportunities to connect to a broad audience like we do today. What does that mean for individuals, our culture, and for the future?

Dan Carlin is a former television news reporter and radio talk show host who since 2005 has been producing two popular podcasts — one on history called Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and one on current events called Common Sense with Dan Carlin. The history podcast recently won iTunes' "Best Podcast of 2014" award and the Hardcore History episodeseries on the Eastern Front in the Second World War was recently named the 5th best podcast episode of all time by Slate Magazine. His most popular podcast episodes have been downloaded between 2.5 and 3 million times. Total downloads for both podcasts since he started exceed 60 million.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

One of the great storytellers and speakers of our time. Love Hardcore History. Love Common Sense. I even donated money and got a spiffy t-shirt. History is the biography of a madman.

It will be interesting to see what changes. Control or censorship of the internet? At the increasing rate that people are creating data, when will the rate that less and less people are contributing to the physical necessities of life be noticed. Food, clothing shelter and such cannot be created on the matrix, and as more and more people create digital creations, where will we find the labor force to sustain us with physical things with a true value to them?
