Welcome to The Emergence. A podcast of essays, commentary, and conversations on the failed state of a highly centralized and manipulative web and ideas on how to reverse this course to create a future web where the user is in control outside the influence of outside interests.
Whether it is through the lens of the technology, politics, ideologies, philosophies, social orders, or interpersonal relationships, The Emergence will to dig deep to find answers to inspire the building of a connection more representative of the user.
A journey to completely rethink the purpose of information as more of a tool wielded by people to build better societies rather than tools for societies to build better people.
