    Gary Briggs is the former CMO of Facebook and has deep experience in the tech industry, serving in leadership roles with Google, PayPal, Ebay, and IBM, among others. Gary is part of a group called Meeting of America that is working to build a platform aimed at addressing the growing divisiveness that we see forming in our country through facilitating conversations among those who might share different views, in a constructive and open-minded way. Meeting of America just conducted their first pilot in Lexington, Kentucky and is planning a roll out to the rest of the country. Our conversation covers Gary’s extensive background in the tech industry, his views on how social media and technology have influenced society, and what he hopes to accomplish with Meeting of America.

    Weekend Thoughts: Start Small

    One of Middle Tech’s newest additions, Brad Farley, pushes against the concept of chasing after unicorn investment dollars and instead encourages us to start small. A champion for low code platforms, such as bubble.io, Brad’s personal stories of startup failures and successes led him on a path which ultimately led to his involvement in Middle Tech’s KY Tech Map. Listen for a few minutes on the legitimacy, ease, and advantages of starting small. Check out some of Brad’s work on the Tech Map and at www.growthstageops.com.

Great podcast!

Fantastic podcast about tech in and around Kentucky. Really enjoy listening to listening to Nate and Evan tackle new and interesting topics and as a New Yorker especially enjoyed the episode on Yext! This is a great listen for anyone in Kentucky and beyond!

Good

A very young duo but both intellectually advanced in knowledge about business and the growing technology playing apart in our world. Covers all aspects that they announce in the beginning of each podcast in good detail. Also, very enjoyable to listen to.
