Episode XI: Super Bowl XLIX and how to explain bitcoin to your grandma

Continuing the conversation we began last week, in Episode XI (aka "11") we dive into our Tools for Trust design theme.

For this edition of the IDEO Futures podcast, Joe spent some time talking with Dr. Reid Williams about Bitcoin, Blockchain, and the future of trust and transactions. Like many of our IDEO colleagues, Reid is a creative polymath, fluent across the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, interaction design, machine learning, molecular biology, and computational biology. As a Bioscience Designer at IDEO, he brings a unique perspective to what the future of Blockchain may hold, so we hope you enjoy his conversation with Joe — the first of many.

Though we're releasing this pod a week after the event, we recorded it in the pleasant afterglow of a Sunday spent watching Super Bowl XLIX. We apologize in advance for our temporary fixation on Roman numerals in Pod No. XI... whoops! There we go again!

Our weekly installment of Venture Design that Blows Our Minds! (VDTBOM) is a tasty one. Joe discusses what it means to live in a design-led company, while Diego got a bit animated about Nissan's big Super Bowl commercial and what it represents.

Ne paraveris, incipe! King Ship!
