    Jacob Helberg on why the new weapons of war are everyday technologies

    Jacob Helberg on why the new weapons of war are everyday technologies

    On this special episode of POWER PLAYS, Jacob Helberg from Stanford University's Center on Geopolitics and Technology introduces listeners to the global tech-fueled struggle between the U.S.-led democracies and China-led autocracies that is redefining international politics. The stakes of this "Gray War", as Helberg terms it in his new book THE WIRES OF WAR, are high and time is running out for America to address and win this war. If China reaches a point of self-sufficiency and what Helberg describes in the show as "escape velocity", it will be too late for the U.S. to prevent China from achieving its political vision of a more autocratic world safe for the Chinese Communist Party.

    Professor Lior Zalmanson on why people pay for online content

    Professor Lior Zalmanson on why people pay for online content

    Lior Zalmanson, a new media artist and an assistant professor at Tel Aviv University, researches the business models that underpin online content. Today on POWER PLAYS he shares brand-new research into how small creators on platforms like Patreon and YouTube have monetized their work. He finds, contrary to popular belief, that a content creator having a personal connection with a consumer has a detrimental impact on whether they make a financial contribution to their work or not. There's a few caveats to that statement, so make sure to listen to this conversation in full to hear his more nuanced take!

    In 1994, Johan "Julf" Helsingius ran an online post office box that allowed people to anonymously share information over the Internet. But after secret religious documents belonging to the Church of Scientology found their way onto the server, Helsingius found himself in the midst of a multi-year legal battle with the Church that saw his name and face splashed everywhere from The New York Times to Time Magazine. 25 years later, he speaks with POWER PLAY's Ayden Férdeline about the state of Internet freedom in Finland today, the stress of this dispute, and the lessons he's learned from this battle.
