Kodsnack 556 - Informed hope, with Monika Bielskyte

Download (mp3)

Recorded on-stage at Øredev 2023 just after her keynote, Fredrik chats to Monika Bielskyte about finding, building, and approaching better visions for the future.

We discuss things such as:

We all create the future all the time. Propaganda and disinformation wants to overwhelm, to disengage. But we can all counteract this and improve the world by doing good things in our daily lives. Put more good information into the systems - and remember to make it cool as well!

We never arrive at a perfect future, it’s the steps we take and what we make here and now that builds it. All or nothing is the old utopia-dystopia thing again - the zero-sum game. Dystopian storytelling is way too easy.
