Each month, “Lochhead on Different” episodes will explore the need to differentiate people, products, and services in a world that encourages a lot of imitation. A best-selling author, top podcaster, and former tech-industry CMO, Christopher Lochhead is a student of not only business and technology and marketing but also human nature, human folly, human genius, and very human joy.
In this episode, Chris and I make a beeline for the intersection of technology, innovation, and people’s everyday lives. In our examination of society’s most prominent tech entrepreneurship projects, we begin with Uber—and how the company plans to become “the Uber of” everything. We also look at Facebook, the debate around breaking it up, and what the “next Facebook” might look like. Plus: Disney, Star Wars, $250 French fries, and the tension between technology and outdoor experiences: maybe the fatal selfie is what Darwin intended?
