David Perell – Information Superabundance
Rabbi Ari Lamm speaks with one of the most prolific writers, teachers and podcasters in the world of new media
How do we navigate in an age where our access to information is limitless? How do we read better? How do we write well? How do we seek out valuable new things? And why is it also more important than ever to hold on to—or discover!—the virtues of ancient wisdom?
To unpack all of this, Rabbi Ari spoke with David Perell—one of the most prolific writers, teachers and podcasters in the world of new media; host of the North Star podcast; author of the “Friday Finds” and “Monday Musings” newsletters; and teacher of the legendary masterclass for online writers, “Write of Passage”.
They talked about how to cope with information overload; the virtues of orality vs. writtenness; informational monotheism vs. informational paganism; why Westerners should read the Bible; the value and perils of a canon; Cain and Abel; the Tree of Knowledge; VCs and prophecy; how to be productive in the digital age; and much more!
