Technology is not enough

What is it?

A presentation by Richard Bartlett, one of the founders of Loomio, an online tool to make decisions.

Why is it interesting?

Loomio is an interesting tool in itself for idea generation and decision making. So have a look at it. But in this talk Richard Bartlett takes a broader look. He is a believer in decentralised systems. But at the same time, he sees too much believe in technology. For example in the blockchain. Technology in itself is not going to change the world without changing attitude and culture, he says.

Key take away/Quote

“There’s a lot of excitement about decentralising technology, often flavoured with a naïve wish that tech can solve the difficult problems of working with humans. Frankly, decentralised tech is pretty fragile without decentralised governance.“
