Overview

We are living in the digital age. Almost all our activities are digital. Many of us don’t even remember the last time we used a pen and paper. This episode is about the benefits and the challenges that people face in this digital age and how we can live in this digital world without facing any problems.

03:51- What are the challenges being faced in the digital age?

  • We launched a revolution, and very often people who launch a revolution don’t realize what they have launched.
  • We have taken a concept that used to be very nebulous, ‘INFORMATION’.
  • We are not any better than other inventors, enforcing the consequences of our invention.

11:46- About Metaverse

  • What are the rules, who is responsible, and what are the rules in the metaverse?
  • There are no rules. It’s kind of wild. We need to really take it very seriously. And think very hard what is the purpose of the metaverse other than that Facebook wants to make more money.

14:06- What happens to privacy on an open platform like metaverse?

  • The paradox of privacy is that we are giving away our privacy.
  • We are willing to give away tiny bits of information about ourselves.
  • One of the things that are very hard for the human mind to comprehend is the accumulated impact of very small actions.
