Book Club 

How the Book Club works

Every 2 months the Book Club members receive an email with 3 books to choose from for their next meeting. After a week, results with the final selection are sent to everyone, so that all members have time to order and read (at least some of!) the book. At the end of the following month members meet up and discuss. Sometimes the authors join in. Sign up for the newsletter because we also attach discount codes from publishers. Check the Global Events Calendar, your email and the pinned messages at Slack for the date of the next meeting. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

The Best Interface is No Interface

The Best Interface is No Interface

By Golden Krishna

Our love affair with the digital interface is out of control. We’ve embraced it in the boardroom, the bedroom, and the bathroom.

Screens have taken over our lives. Most people spend over eight hours a day staring at a screen, and some “technological innovators” are hoping to grab even more of your eyeball time. You have screens in your pocket, in your car, on your appliances, and maybe even on your face. Average smartphone users check their phones 150 times a day, responding to the addictive buzz of Facebook or emails or Twitter.

Are you sick? There’s an app for that

Need to pray? There’s an app for that

Dead? Well, there’s an app for that, too

And most apps are intentionally addictive distractions that end up taking our attention away from things like family, friends, sleep, and oncoming traffic.

There’s a better way.

In this book, innovator Golden Krishna challenges our world of nagging, screen-based bondage, and shows how we can build a technologically advanced world without digital interfaces.

In his insightful, raw, and often hilarious criticism, Golden reveals fascinating ways to think beyond screens using three principles that lead to more meaningful innovation. Whether you’re working in technology, or just wary of a gadget-filled future, you’ll be enlighted and entertained while discovering that the best interface is no interface.
