Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves the Way We Work and Live

Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves the Way We Work and Live

What Would Google Do?: Reverse-Engineering the Fastest Growing Company in the History of the World

What Would Google Do?: Reverse-Engineering the Fastest Growing Company in the History of the World

Speaking Topics
  • Publicness and Privacy

    The author of the provocative book "Public Parts" argues in favor of the benefits of sharing and warns of the dangers of overreacting to fears about privacy brought on by the internet. Privacy matters and needs protection, but so does publicness, Jarvis contends, as he brings historical and personal perspective to understanding how technology can change society for the better.

  • What Would Google Do? Reverse-Engineering the Fastest Growing Company in the Rest of the World

    The author of this best-selling book takes audiences through a fascinating exercise, asking them to imagine the Googley car company or restaurant or government ... or version of their own company. Thus, he helps them to understand what made Google the fastest-growing company in the history of business and to find their own opportunities in the disruption brought on by the internet.

  • Save the Net: Encouraging Openness

    The internet is in danger. Not just of tyrants but also of well-meaning governments and clumsy companies threatening to limit the freedom and power that the net is bringing to anyone -
    • to publish to the world and even to organize revolutions and new nations. Jarvis has urged CEOs and heads of state to take a Hippocratic oath for the net: First, do no harm. He proposes principles of an open internet and open society and urges his audiences to protect them both.

  • Honey, We Shrunk the Economy

    Today, technology leads to efficiency overgrowth. The result: countless jobs lost in recent years will not return. That’s a harsh reality that policymakers and pundits refuse to face. In a discussion with his audiences, Jarvis looks at industry after industry -
    • from media to retail to manufacturing to education -
    • in which productivity and profitability may soar but so, too, will disruption, destruction, and unemployment. What results is a conversation about strategies and opportunities in the face of this disruption.

  • The Beta Conversation: Invitation to Collaborate

    Technology has taught us a new way to develop products: in public. When Google releases a beta, it is a statement of humility that says, “This thing isn’t finished, it isn’t perfect, in fact, we’re not sure what it is yet -
    • so help us make it better.” The beta is an invitation to collaborate with customers. That’s a wise model for more enterprises and activities as Jarvis and his audiences explore the beta company, beta government, beta marriage, and beta life.
