About the Episode
Today's special guest is none other than Taylor Pearson, author of The End Of Jobs.
He has emerged as a thought leader around blockchain's impact on our future. This episode is centered around you, the individual.
The 1950's 9-to-5 company man is a thing of the past. Taylor explains:
"The Organization Man was defined by the Social ethic which emphasized the individual as subordinate to the group, the importance of belongingness, and The Organization as the means to achieve belongingness and achieve the proper subordination of the individuals to the group.
The Blockchain Man’s world will be defined by the three tenets of the Protocol Ethic.
- a belief in the individual as the source of creativity
- a belief in serving the needs of the protocol as the ultimate purpose of the individual
- and a belief in the application of blockchains to achieve an individual’s highest potential.
The Blockchain Man exists as a unit of the blockchain. Of himself, he is isolated, meaningless; only as he collaborates with the blockchain does he become worthwhile, for by sublimating himself to the blockchain, he helps produce a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts."
