Singapore has this funky event named blinkBL_NK – a sort of TEDx without the attitude that sometimes goes with it. I attended a first one a month ago and thought it would be a great outlet for my own unproven ideas. As I speak in dozens of events per year about digital business topics, I cherish those occasions to share non-business ideas.
My talk focused on how our society and culture shape us so much that it makes it hard override our “default settings”. I believe it undermines our happiness by preventing us from understanding what really matters to us. One specific area where it impacts our lives is socialization. This is a topic I have been researching on for quite some time due to my work on online communities. As I invested quite a bit of effort in this talk and only shared it with the 50 or so people who attended, I went the extra mile and subtitled it for online viewing. Enjoy!
